New Challenge @ Shopping Our Stash


Today begins a new challenge at...

Shopping Our Stash // #SOS508 ...A "use from your stash" challenge!!  For this current challenge we have also given you a color palette to use as your inspiration.  I used some retired Stampin Up inks from my stash...More Mustard, Not Quit Navy.  I also included Garden Green which is a current color in the Stampin Up catalog. 

Now it is your turn to find something from your stash that fits the great fall color palette we have for you.  Hop on over to our blog and check out the creations by the rest of the design team and then join the fun and play along.

Today's card was also inspired by...

Scrap~N~Sketch // #WCMD2 ...A sketch challenge!!  This sketch is part of their World Card Making Day challenges.  Each Saturday in October they are giving us a sketch in honor of WCMD.  This is the second sketch and it was perfect for showcasing the colors from Shopping Our Stash's new challenge that begins today.

Today's 2nd card was inspired by 5 challenges...

Alphabet Challenge // #20OCT23 ...An alphabet challenge!!  O is for Owl!!  I embossed an owl on to a piece printed vellum.  I love how this card tuned out.  It was kinda fun to use an owl without it being a halloween card.

Paper Craft Crew // #PCC540 ...A sketch challenge!!  I love the vertical sketch...perfect for showcasing my wintery owl!!

TGIF Challenges // #tgifc443 ...An inspiration challenge!!  The wintery owl scene was our inspiration and I decided that this snowflake printed vellum gave that wintery look!!

As You See It Challenges // #AYSI310 ...A "fill in the blank" challenge!!  My favorite thing to do with vellum is_____!! ...emboss on it and add color with markers by coloring on the back.  My owl is embossed on to a snowflake printed vellum and then I flipped it over an colored him in using Stampin Up markers.

INKspiraitonal Challenges // #IC301 ...A word prompt challenge!! COLD is the prompt for this current challenge!!  A snowflake printed vellum gives a COLD wintery feel to my card!!  This wise old owl is nestled in for for the night.

This owl card was chosen as the "spotlight winner" over at the Alphabet Challenge.  Thanks to the design team for the shout out on my card.
