SCS sketch Frosty Days

This morning I am off to our school fundraiser at a local casino. We(parents) work it for two days and usually net about $80,000 for the school/kids. It's a great money maker and we are blessed to have it. Not all schools get it and we know how fortunate we are.
Last week my friend Jackie aka hpyscrper2 invited me to play along in the Wicked Challenges on SCS for SU! demos. You must use only current SU! products. I was super excited to see her hosting this month! So last night I sat down to work on two of them.
My first one is for a colour challenge of Kraft, Always Artichoke, Riding Hood Red and Whisper White.
Stamps: Dreams du Jour; Cardstock: Always Artichoke, Riding Hood Red, Kraft, WW and Washington Apple DP; Inks: Black, Artichoke, Riding Hood and Saffron; Accessories: SU scalloped edge punch, Mat pack and paper piercer, riding hood red ribbon, dimensionals and blender pen
The second challenge was to make these eeny weeny tiny mini milk carton boxes...they will hold a couple Starburst candies....small eh? lol My fat fingers struggled with them! But they are super cute and easy!!
Stamps: Batty for You; Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss, WW and Ghostly Greetings DP; Inks: Black and Kiwi; Accessories: Staples, Black Grosgrain, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches, dimensionals
Yesterday I also played along with the SCS sketch. It's such a fun sketch!

This is a Stampin' Up! only card.

I pulled out my fave stamp set from last years mini called Merry & Bright. I was so excited to see it make the catty this time! I wasn't sure about this Frosty Days designer paper but it's growing on me. I coloured the old fashioned way(at least to me...lol) with a blender pen and ink off of the lids.

Stamps: Merry & Bright; Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Kiwi Kiss, WW and Frosty Days DP; Inks: Black, Bashful blue, Kiwi kiss, Tangerine tango; Accessories: Blender pen, Mat pack and paper piercer, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by today!

I love that first card... How big are those milk carton bags....hard to tell how small they are, but they sound small....cute.

These are all sooo cute, Dawn! Love all the piercing on the first card, and those little milk cartons are too STINKIN' adorable! Now, as for the third card...You are in TROUBLE, girl! It uses the one dp I thought I didn't need or want. Now YOU have to go and make this sweet little card with it, which has left me feeling like maybe I really DO need this paper after all...ENABLER! (Can you see me sticking my tongue out at you???) HaHa...Seriously, girl, you just cost me some $$! Love these samples!

The piercing is beautiful on the first card and the Halloween goodies are precious. Love those little snow people in the last card.
All your work is lovely.

Dawn thank you for sharing three great projects. The first card is so very elegant. The second project is a great idea for classroom and teacher treats. And last but not least I just love these little snowmen and I love the colors you chose. TFS.
