Camp Stamp-in-Oga Challenges

 


These two cards I made for the card challenges for Camp Stamp-In-Oga, which is being held today. The top one, with the snowflake scroll,  is for the Color Challenge and the bottom one is for the Sketch Challenge.  I am hoping one of the two is a winner! 

Here are the color choices:



Here is what the sketch looks like:


I went with a bit of non-traditional winter colors for the first card--picking Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick.  I used the Stampin' Up Snow is Glistening Stamp set and the coordinating Snowfall thinlits.  I like the uniqueness of it and I hope the attendees do to and vote for it!

For the sketch card, is highlighted some of the newest Stampin' Up Specialty Designer Series Paper called Floral Romance.  I love the colors and the patterns!

Here is the insides of both cards:

Friday's With The Project Bin


It is Friday, so  that means that I am back with another card for The Project Bin Stamps--A Way With Words!  Every Friday,  I post a card made from one of their great photopolymer stamp sets.  So, please plan to come back each week to see what I have created--I think you too will love these great sentiment stamp sets.  And, remember, some of the sets come with matching steel dies! Denise is the owner, founder and creator of these wonderful stamp sets.  The sentiments she has for us to ink up are just perfect for any holiday or time of year.  Please be sure to go and check them out! 

I am so excited to see what great stamp sets Denise has in mind for the future.  I am sure she will have some wonderful sentiments for us to ink up and for you to consider purchasing!  I just know you too will love creating cards with these stamp sets!!!

For this card, I used the newest stamp set called Really Hungry!   This set comes with 11 great images and some fun puns, like the sentiment I used.  This is a wonderful set to tell those you love what they mean to you!    And, I paired it with some patterned paper with Pizza slices.  Of course, we all love Pizza too!

Ready? Set? Go!



Today is the third Wednesday of the month and that means a Ready, Set, Go Challenge Card! The 3 Musketeers and now the One Plus Twelve Ladies--Jeanette, Kelly and Me, are back with another challenge for January-our 20th month!  We are now coming to the end year #2!



Jeannette provided the challenge for December: Here it is, the beginning of a new year. I’m not sure if any of us make New Year’s Resolutions (I know I don’t, although I do set annual goals) but research tells us that the most common New Year’s Resolution people make is to lose weight. For this, our first Ready Set Go theme of the New Year, I want our cards to lose some weight. No, we are not going to weigh our cards… but we are going to make them skinny. Instead of making a typical A2 card or even a square card, we will be making cards that are the perfect size to fit in a business-size envelope. Tall and Skinny! (Oh, how I wish that were my body type.) Oh, I guess you realize, to be tall and skinny, your card will also need to be vertical and not horizontal. We don’t want to be short and fat. ;)  NOTE HERE from ME--I Failed This Part!

A business-size envelope measures 9 ½” by 4” so the cards probably need to be about 9 ¼” by 3 ¾”.

A second part to this month’s theme is to use the newest paper-crafting item you have while making your card. Maybe it’s a stamp you recently purchased, a tool/gadget you received for Christmas, or some other treasure you’ve acquired. Whatever is the newest. (And remember, newest could be months ago… but hey! It’s not for me! I get new toys way too often.) 

Here’s to the Newness of a 2019!   Ready? Set? Go! 

OK--yes, I failed to read and consider the last line of Jeanette's challenge--so here is my card tall and skinny:


But since the card looks a bit odd, standing sideways, I had better post a better picture here and do some 'splaining....................  I did use my most recent stamp set--Stampin' Up Blended Seasons and the matching die set--Stitched Seasons. I received  those in November with hostess rewards when I was hostess for our monthly Rewards Club.  I did follow those directions!  But, in my defense--I am 6 feet tall, or was before I started shrinking the past few years.  I know that I am not skinny though--but I was, back in the day!  



Here is the inside of my card:



Please be sure to check out the other Ready, Set, Go cards.  Here is a link to Jeanette's and Kelly's blog.  I am sure you will not be disappointed and will see a couple of great cards! I hope Kelly and Jeanette like my card--and that Jeanette is not too mad at me for messing up!   I hope you might it too!--tall and skinny or short and fat?!   Kelly is up for the next theme, so be sure to check back to see what we are up to on the 3rd Wednesday in February!

Week 3-Bib Card

If you are looking for my Dueling Darlings Card, please scroll down


Today is the third week of A Card a Week Challenge. One card a week--for 52 weeks--with a preset challenge for each month. January is Fancy Folds!  Each Tuesday, I will post a card that fits the theme of the monthly challenge.

Today is a Bib Card. I might have cheated a bit as I have a package of these pre-made cards in my stash--but I have not used them too often.  So-I am going to count this as my third Fancy Fold Card!  I also inked up some older Stampin' Up sets--Flight of the Butterfly, Barn Door and Sincere Salutations.  This challenge is also getting me to use more of my stash--or supplies!

Here is the inside of my card:





I hope you will stop back each Tuesday to see my creation for my A Card a Week Challenge!  January is all about Fancy Folds!

Dueling Darlings Encourage

If you are looking for my A Card a Week Challenge-it will be up later, or scroll up.


It is the 15th of the month and that means I am showing you a new Dueling Darlings card.  For our January Challenge, Judy and Donna are the hostesses! They decided on the theme-Encouragement! Donna is one of the Dazzlers and Judy is one of the Divas, the team I am on, and we are all Dueling Darlings!  And, we have been doing this since August of 2010--a long time!

Judy gave us the following information-- Donna and I thought that we would like you all the create a card that would encourage the recipient in their quest to achieve a goal, overcome a trial or loss.  Judy sent us this sweet image by Paper Pretties.   The sentiment I picked is by There She Goes.  This was fun card to make--thanks Judy!  


Here is the inside of my card:






I hope all of the Darlings enjoy my card this month. Please be sure to stop in to see what all of the Divas as well the Dazzlers have created this month. We will be here in February--and Tracie and I are the hostesses--so be sure to check back!

There are a few members who do not have blogs:  Suzy and Terry S who both are on the Diva team and Debby who is a Dazzlers.  You will be able to check out their creations in their SCS gallery, if you click on the link for their name.  All of the others should be found on my left sidebar.  I am sure you will enjoy all of the wonderful creations this month!
