Sunny Challenges

Doing challenges are something that I love doing and one of the members of the ESAD group put me onto this new challenge site by some other SU Demos. Called Sunny Challenges it gives a challenge each week, often a sketch challenge which are my favourite.

Project Recipe
Stamp: Perfect punches
Card: concord crush, melon mambo, pink pirouette and lucky limeade
Ink: whisper white
Accessories: Wide oval punch, Cheerful treat dsp (hostess), lace ribbon border punch, Fun flowers die for the bigshot, dazzling diamonds and crystal effects.

Sketch Challenge 237

 Back to the Saturday sketch challenge from Stamping 411 and another chance to use a new stamp set from the Summer mini. Sets just for men are always a bonus when they come along so I knew I had to have this set as soon as I saw it and the matching dsp just makes it better!

Stamp: Open Sea and Oval all
Card: Early espresso, cherry cobbler, not quite navy and very vanilla
Ink: Early espresso, cherry cobbler and not quite navy
Accessories: Nautical expedition dsp and wide oval punch

First card of 2012


It seems only fitting that the first card of 2012 be made with products being used for the first time. The card is a CASE of one I saw on Splitcoast that you can see here. As you can see I haven't done much to change it, just added a couple of extra details. The stamp set and the dsp are both available in the new Summer mini.

Project Recipe
Stamps: Charming
Card: River rock, pool party, soft suede and whisper white
Ink: Soft suede, pool party and tea stain (avail in distressing essential kit)
Accessories: Spice cake dsp, dotted scallop ribbon punch, wide oval punch, self adhesive pearls and Big Shot products: textured frames embossing folder and numbers die.
