New Challenge @ Cardz 4 Guyz #C4G318


Today begins a new challenge at...

Cardz 4 Guyz // #C4G318 ...A masculine challenge to use any coloring medium!! I chose to use watercolor pencils on my donkeys (Stampin Up's Darling Donkeys).  I also "colored" my embossed background using my white ink pad.  We look forward to seeing what you use to color your card.  Will it be copic markers, watercolor pencils, chalks...the list goes on!!  Hop on over to our blog and check out the inspiration given by the design team. 

Any Coloring Medium  #C4G318
Today's card was also inspired by 2 other challenges...

Sketch Saturday // #SS721 ...A sketch challenge!!  I always like to pair our C4G challenge with a sketch challenge...helps give direction to the theme we have.  And...this was a fun sketch for these two donkey lovers.

INKspirational Challenges // #IC285 ...A word prompt challenge!!  NUMBERS!!  With numbers being the word prompt, I figured it was fitting to use my bingo card embossing folder.  All kinds of numbers on it!! LOL

Card #2 inspired by 2 challenges...

Inspire.Create.Challenge // #ICC138 ...A CASE challenge!!  For this challenge we are CASEing a card made by one of their design team members, Karen.  I liked the way she mixed texture with designer papers, the cluster of flowers, and the tag sentiment.

{PIN}spirational Challenge // #299 ...A Pinterest inspired challenge!!  For this challenge we are to use the Pinterest photo as our inspiration and this month it is all flowers & birthdays.

A Sketch & A Color Challenge

 2 challenges inspired today's card...

Freshly Made Sketches // #FMS577
...A sketch challenge!!  I decided to cut out a trio of layered leaves instead of circles...using Stampin Up's Colorful Seasons dies.  I know it is spring time but for some reason I was really into these fall leaves for this weeks sketch

Color Throwdown // #ctd734 ...A color challenge!!  The color combo for this challenge...green, brown, and cream.  I used Very Vanilla, Evening Evergreen, and Soft Suede.   A rich color combination!!

A Birthday & A Thank You

 Card #1 inspired by 2 challenges...

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge // #AHSC516 ...A sketch challenge!!  My mom was doing some Spring cleaning and found this pack of paper from over 10 years ago when we lived in VA.  She asked me if I could make some cards with it...that is why you keep seeing these papers in my blog posts.  Since she found it while Spring cleaning...I think I could also share it with the As You See It challenge!!   I didn't really use scraps but this paper packet was a product of some Spring cleaning.  LOL!!


Card #2 inspired by 1 challenge...

Global Design Project // #GDP385 ...A color challenge!!  The trio of colors for this challenge: Costal Cabana, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla.  A beachy color combination in my mind's eye.

Both cards are also perfect for the Retro Rubber challenge // #rrcb202  It is an "anything goes" challenge.  But you have to use stamps that are over a year old.  Card #1...I used the Just Believe stamp set from Stampin Up that retired in 2013 (not sure what year is came out but obviously it is an oldie but goodie).  And the sentiment on Card #2 came from Stampin Up's Rose Wonder stamp set that came out in 2016.

Happy Day!!

 3 challenges inspired this "Happy Day" card...

TGIF Challenges // #tgifc411 ...A sketch challenge!!  A perfect sketch for showcasing this layered mushrooms from Spellbinders and using up designer papers that I have been hoarding.

The Paper Players // #PP631 ...A color challenge!!  The colors called for in this challenge are Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Tahitian Tide, and Whisper White.  A very springy combination.

TicTacToe Challenges // #tttc199 ...A game board challenge!!  My winning 3 in a row: twine (white), layers (layered mushroom dies and several layers of designer paper), patterned paper (love getting to use up designer paper from my over flowing box of scraps).

New Challenge @ Shopping Our Stash


Today begins a new challenge at...

"Somewhere Over the Rainbow" #SOS492
Shopping Our Stash // #SOS492 ...A theme challenge!!  "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"...that is our theme for this new challenge!!  Oh and don't forget, we want you to shop your stash!!  Dig deep and find those stamps or embellishments that have gotten covered up and forgotten.  For my card, I pulled out Stampin Up's Over the Rainbow stamp set from 2015.  I also dug around for some cloud dies...these are from a newer set...Stampin Up's Wavers of Inspiration bundle that came out last year.  

Now it is your turn...shop your stash and find those items that will help you create a rainbow card.  We can't wait to see your take on our new challenge.  If you need additional inspiration, hop on over to our blog and check out the awesome cards the rest of the design team have made.

Today's card was also inspired by 2 additional challenges...

Just Us Girls Challenge // #JUG670 ...A word challenge!!  RAINBOW is the word of the week.  Remember that God gives us rainbows as a promise of hope!!

As You See It Challenge // #AYSI294 ...A theme challenge!!  Spring Cleaning is the theme for this challenge.  For this challenge we were asked to do some spring cleaning of our work space...you know, use up some of those scraps!!  I did just that and cut a frame from the hole left behind from cutting out a rectangle.  Since that die leaves behind a stitched rim it makes for a nice looking frame.

Card #2 inspired by 2 challenges...

Inspired By Challenges // #IB228 ...An inspiration challenge with an optional sketch!!  I used both the photo and the sketch as my inspiration for this card.  I decide to leave it blank, without a sentiment.  I'll add a sentiment later once I know who I will be using this card.  

Retro Rubber Challenges // #rrcb202 ...A retro challenge!!  Use stamps that are over a year old.  No stamps here but I did use a Stamp & Scrap set from Stampin Up that is over 10 years old. And since it is an "anything goes" challenge I figured this set would be fine!!  As I type this out I am wondering how bad my hoarding is...over 10 years...yikes!!  I am also amazed that these stickers are still working!!  Amazing!!
