The past few weeks I have been doing some “virtual stamping” with friends, playing along with random challenges. It has been a great way to make a bunch of RAK’s to send and also connect with friends I haven’t seen in a while!
Here’s the cards that I made so far. The first photo is for a challenge to use bunnies or flowers and also uses the Scrappy Strip technique for the background. (I honestly didn’t watch the entire video and just winged it. If you want to skip the chit chat, go to the 20 minute mark.) I used the Spellbinders 24 Carrot dies and the following papers: black, white, SU! Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz, Real Red and Daffodil Delight, Echo Park- Sunny Days Ahead.
This card was for a monochromatic challenge. The images are a free printable from A Jillian Vance Design.
My next card was for a challenge to make a humorous card. I used a free printable by Taylored Expressions for the sentiment and thought it would pair well with Ai’s Maude! The sentiment was cut with Gina Marie’s Scallop Stitched Rectangles. Papers are white, Lemon Lime Twist, Taken With Teal, navy, K&Co. Que Sera Sera.
This CAS card was for a sketch challenge and also using the colors Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry and Pool Party. I used the Sweet ‘n Sassy Birthday Borders and Lots of Love sets with patterned paper scraps (SU! Sycamore Street) to make the cake.
The ladybug card was also for sketch and color challenges, using SU! Little Ladybugs and matching dies. The background panel was embossed with the Subtle e.f. for a little texture. The matching envelope was a third challenge here.
Here’s a card with an older SU! set, Not So Seriously, for another sketch challenge. The paper is Simple Stories- Vintage Bliss.
This next card was actually my first one for the challenges and my least favorite. Next time I would use a lighter background. The challenges here were to use these colors and sketch and make it in 15 minutes. I obviously need more time than that. lol.
This was for 2 challenges (I combined them a lot. lol)… the colors and to make a masculine card. I used SU! Sailing Home and matching dies & paper.
Next card was for a fancy fold card challenge. I chose to make a Square Z-fold card. I used the Sweet ‘n Sassy Tea For Two and Colorbok’s Beach House paper.
Inside is an oval with Die-Namics Stitched Mini Scallop Ovals.
My last cards today were for a sketch challenge. I used the SNSS printable Encouraging Thoughts, Avery Elle Let It Snow Die, Sizzix Wildflower Stems #1, Jane Davenport watercolors, and SU! Square Lattice embossing folder. The flowers were diecut from watercolor paper.
After the watercolored flowers were dry, I added some Wink of Stella.
I am thankful for friends keeping me crafty during this time! Stay safe and have a good week!
