Oh my – a new challenge!!

A dear friend of mine, Buffy Cooper, is a design team member over at Craft Project Central.  Every month, each design team member creates fabulous projects, and you can get the tutorials & templates for ALL of the projects, just by subscribing – either for that month, or several months, etc.

Well, Buffy let me know that right now, Craft Project Central is having a card sketch challenge!!  *squee!*  You know how I’m lovin’ these challenges!  Even better – for every 10 cards submitted, they will  choose 1 person to win a 1 month FREE subscription to Craft Project Central!  *double squee!*  So, if you want to join in – the more the merrier (and more prizes, too! 🙂 )

Here is the sketch for this challenge:

And this is my interpretation on the sketch:

CPC45 sketch card

I decided to go with a different shape – so I used the Hearts Framelits Dies, and stamped a sentiment from the Cheers to Love stamp set (#135371 wm/#135374 cm).  I stamped in the Metallic Gold Encore ink, and then heat embossed it in Gold embossing powder.  Using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies, I cut the heart borders out of Brushed Gold cardstock, and layered Confetti Celebration Designer Series Paper over that.  For the card base, I chose Bermuda Bay cardstock, as it is one of the colours in the Confetti Celebration DSP.   Of course, I had all the little gold hearts left over from the border die, so I added some to the card front 🙂

If you’ve been enjoying seeing my card submissions for these challenges, I like to challenge YOU to enter your own card!  You don’t have to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator to enter – and it’s all in good fun!

I hope  you’ll head over to the Craft Project Central page, and have a look at the cards the design team made for this sketch challenge – and maybe enter yourself!

Until next time, Happy Stamping!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to stamp and create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project; whether a 3D item, or a card, or scrapbook page - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you stamp and create with me! :) If you're in Canada, you can Join My Team as a SU! demonstrator. If you're in the Great Vancouver area, you're welcome to join my classes - we always have fun!
