Mixing patterns challenge by Betsy Veldman. She had a great video which gave some great tips and beautiful samples. Make sure to head over to Nichole's blog and check it out.
Here is what I made:
Sparkle & Shine patterned paper
Tropical teal ink
Think big favorites - happy birthday stamp
Stitched slops die by Simon Says Stamp
Piece on the upper right hand side is from a Becky Higgins, Project life kit
Next up is the Runway Challenge. I choose the color scheme by Dawn McVey.
Scarlet Jewel cardstock
Ink - Scarlet jewel, Simply chartreuse, Ripe avocado, Raspberry fizz & Pure poppy
Embroidered borders stamp and die
Boutique borders - Birthday stamp
Fall florals stamp and dies
And finally for the final challenge I choose the Thread nest challenge by Laura Bassen.
Soft Stone patterned paper
Embroidered borders - Birthday stamp
Keep it Simple - Happy stamp
Smokey shadow ink
SEI - Fieldnotes dies - circle and flowers/butterflies
I am hoping to get a few more done before the day is over but I have to stop and make dinner.
I did get one more done. This is the Make it work challenge. We are supposed to take a previous card we made but didn't completely love and remake it. I chose this one from a challenge to use something other than a square or rectangle. I really didn't like how this turned out at all not even the stamping.
But I turned it into this
Much better don't you think?
