The card making group I belong to decided to have challenges to start off our new year, especially since a lot of people would have Sunday off, and since I was already behind on the early January birthday's this was the perfect thing to help get me jump started and get them done. There were 10 challenges and these are the 3 I managed to get done on Sunday.
First Challenge was to use an image from a calendar that we would just toss.... well I don't toss my calendars, either I make envelopes from them or I use the images from them, and this image from a Debbie Mumm Calendar was the perfect size for my card. I just added some Hot off the press, tiny words dazzles for the sentiment, some spectrum sparkle pen to her wings and matted it onto some paper,
The next challenge was to use your favorite sports team colors on a card. I went with University of Michigan colors. I feel bad because I sent this to my girlfriend who is a Michigan State fan :)
Darcie -Large Daisy embossing folder
Inkadinkado -- Patterned Bugs stamp set
Queen &co. - Yellow sunshine pearls
David Tuttera - Celebrate sentiment
The last challenge was to do a Vintage type card using many supplies. I went with this Graphic 45 paper.
Graphic 45 -- Steampunk Debutante paper
DCWV -- Rub on stitches
Hero Arts -- Birthday messages
Spellbinders -- Circle Delight
Fiskar -- Brown ribbon
American Crafts -- Jute
Button from flea market
Maybe these challenges will give you some ideas for your own crafting.
Hope you are all well and didn't get too much snow. We are headed back to below freezing temps tomorrow, not looking forward to that.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and letting me know you did, so good to hear from you!
