Techno Stamper: Monday Lunchtime Challenge

Yesterday was the last day of spring break and we had something that we didn't have all week - sun and warmer temps!  It felt so good to sit outside this afternoon, and I am so hoping that it will start warming up and we are done with the cold and snow!

We have very fun challenge for today's Monday Lunchtime Challenge.  I have posted sketch below, and you can load your awesome work of art: HERE


I went for a vintage look for my card and like how the colors, Pink Pirouette, Soft Suede and Pistachio Pudding flow together.  I lightened up the Soft Suede for the background and stamped it off on a scrap piece of paper first before stamping the image on the card front.  I distressed the edges and then lightly added Soft Suede to the edges using a sponge.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you can make the time to play along this week!


Stamps: Petite Petals, Perfect Pennants, Off the Grid, Gorgeous Grunge
Inks: Soft Suede, Pink Pirouette, Pistachio Pudding
Papers: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Pistachio Pudding

Latenight Stamper Challenge

This week's LNS challenge is all about wind; which is perfect because it's a windy day here in the Windy City!  Below is my "loose interpretation" for this challenge as I went with sun and clouds.  I saw an adorable card on PI that Shana Gaff did (which you can see HERE) and loved the idea of making a smaller card and using the largest Banner Framelit Die at the bottom to create a banner.  I made the clouds using the Cupcake Punch, the 1-3/8" Circle Builder Punch for the base of the sun.  This card measures 2-3/4" x 5-1/2", and I made a 3" x 6" envelope using my envelope punch board.  Below is a list of what I used.....thanks for stopping by!

Hope you can play along, and you can load your card HERE!  We can't wait to see what you come up with!


Stamps: See Ya Later
