Only managed to do two of the challenges yesterday, the first was a traditional Winter/Christmas card, I had a stamped image of the church from the set Silent Night, so I used that, added some Dazzling Diamonds & stamped snowflakes on the cardstock in Versamark
Recipe: all SU!
Stamp - Silent Night, Snowburst
DSPs - Merry Moments
Cardstock - Old Olive, Whisper White
Punch - Eyelet Border
The second challenge I did was to make a Tea bag gift holder, I actually did this on my lap whilst watching last week's Top Model with my daughter! I got the template from Splitcoast Stampers, very easy to do although harder without a ScorPal - I knew there was something I forgot to get at the NEC! LOL
Recipe: all SU!
Stamp - Darling Dots (Level 1 Hostess set), Best Yet
Cardstock - Barely Banana, Whisper White
DSP - Washington Apple
Ink - Chocolate Chip
SU Markers - Barely Banana, Pumpkin Pie
Other - SU Sticky Strip
And finally, I entered the Big Challenge, which had to be a gift/card etc for a girl or boy, with the the theme of Cinderella/Princess or Knights/Dragons. We had up until midday today to do, I got my idea as I went to bed last night and nearly got back up to make it there & then, but hung on until this morning! It took all morning to do, and I got it in with half an hour to spare
I went for Rapunzel's Tower, which is made from a loo roll, covered in SU! DSP, the Princess word was cut out with a die and I used the Scallop Border punch to add a bit of detail. I really enjoyed doing it, ages since I've done something like this, rather than than just a card, a bit fiddly at times, but I felt like a real crafter! LOL
Cardstock - SU So Saffron, Pretty in Pink
DSPs - SU Tea & Crumpets
Ribbon, charm & chipboards shapes - all from stash.
We find out tomorrow who wins the prizes over the weekend, there's been some fab entries, great inspiration, and I can recommend a hop over to look at the gallery to see all the wonderful ideas on offer.
Have a good Sunday, I'm all crafted out - for now!
