Challenges!

Good Wednesday Morning!

Wow I have a LOT to share this morning so please scroll down to see it all. Let's keep our fingers crossed that this post doesn't look all wonky when it goes live...I've edited about 5 times now....lol

Wednesday's tend to be busy days with a couple of my Design Teams doing challenges plus this week we have a mid-week Our Creative Corner Challenge.

This first card I am sharing with you is from yesterday's Colour Challenge of Choc Chip, Pink Pirouette and Kiwi Kiss.

This is a SU! only card.

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes; Cardstock: Choc Chip, Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss, WW and Bella Rose DP; Inks: Kiwi Kiss, Pink Piroutte, Choc Chip; Accessories: SU scalloped edge punch, Mat pack and Paper Piercer, Dimensionals

We have a mid-week challenge for you from the OCC! Julee has challenged us to a Vintage Verve card. What's that you ask? Hop on over to Our Creative Corner and see what it's all about. You never know what surprises may be in store for you there!!





For my image panel I first stamped the flower in Creamy Caramel and then Choc Chip. I then sponged the panel with Creamy Caramel, then Close to Cocoa and then Choc Chip on the edges.



I love the look of a monochromatic card but don't do them very often. I'm more of a colourful card person. I thought these colours would be nice for a Sympathy card that I was in need of.

Stamps: Serenity; Cardstock: Close to Cocoa, Choc Chip, Creamy Caramel, WW and Bella Rose DP; Inks: Choc chip, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa; Accessories: SU! scalloped edge punch, Sponges, Word Window Punch, Small oval punch, Choc Satin Ribbon, Primas and Vintage Brad


I've got an All That Scraps challenge for you now. This week it's a Colour Challenge of Bravo Burgundy, Old Olive and Sahara Sand.

Christmas was my first thought, so I ran with it! Isn't this tree from CC Designs Sugarplums Christmas Scene cute?! It's so fun to colour!!


I didn't have a Christmas sentiment so I used a SU! hostess set called Best Yet.


We hope you will play along with us at ATS! If you upload to the gallery please use keyword ATSDTC23.

Stamps: Sugarplum's Christmas Scene, Best Yet(SU!); Cardstock: Bravo Burgundy, Old Olive, Sahara Sand, WW and Haiku dp; Inks: Adirondack Black, Bravo Burgundy; Accessories: Copics, SU! scalloped edge punch, Mat pack and paper piercer, 5/8" old olive ribbon, Dimensionals

Storage Unit, Inks & More has a challenge out today too! Whatchadoin' Wednesday is about Treats for our Sweets!


Do you still need a last minute treat holder for Halloween? Already done with that, how about a special treat for a loved one. Could be cookies, candy, cupcake any type of sweet treat and a creative way to present it.

This is what I came up with!

We are trying not to do sweets in this house and I wasn't about to buy some for this project so I pulled out some Pumpkin Seeds ;) This was a super easy holder to make. A 4.25 x 11 piece of cardstock. Scored at 4.5, 5.5 and 10. I used my nesties to cut a hole in the front so you can see the clear bag full of pumpkin seeds. Easy peasy! Check out SUINK for more details and to see what the other girls have created!

Stamps: Giving Thanks; Cardstock: More Mustard, Tangerine Tango, WW; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Circle Punches, Oval punch, Designer label punch, SU scalloped edge punch, nesties, Choc poly twill ribbon, Dimensionals, plastic bag

Arrggh, talking about Halloween. . .I don't want to even think about it. My daughter wants me to make a 108 of them for her Key Club. I don't think I have the energy to do it.
