I’m really trying to push myself at the moment, no only in my creativity, but also my business, my fitness (and so weight loss) and my job! I have a LOT going on! and I LOVE it!
But, sometimes a get stuck in a rut with cardmaking. This is when I turn to Pinterest, or YouTube, or a Challenge for inspiration.
This week, I took another look at the All Around the World Stampin’ Challenge Blog, a group of Stampin’ Up! demos from around the world, who complete 2 challenges a month, and have some amazing ideas. I am going to try and complete some of these challenges (not promising I’m going to take part every fortnight, but I will try!)
The challenge this time was to use Baked Brown Sugar, Cherry Cobbler, and Mossy Meadow. This is why these challenges push me so much; I don’t own all the Stampin’ Up! Ink pads, I don’t have cardstock in every colour, and I definitely don’t have all the stamps! But, I do own the Many Marvellous Markers (and luckily for this challenge, the In-Colour 2013-2015 Stampin’ Write Markers).
So, I grabbed my Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler cardstock, along with a piece of Whisper White, my favourite stamp set from the seasonal catalogue, and my pens, and got to creating.
I used Mossy Meadow as my cardbase, with a layer of Cherry Cobbler (complete with pierced boarder!) and a layer of Whisper White. I stamped the Tree from Festival of Trees in Mossy Meadow (stamped off first) and added the tinsel in Versamark and Gold embossing powder.The tree pot I stamped in Cherry Cobbler (using my pens) and the star is Baked Brown Sugar and punched out using one of the Itty Bitty Accents punches.
I added the scribble backdrop of Baked Brown Sugar before popping the tree up with some dimensionals. The sentiment is stamped in Mossy Meadow, and the Basic Jewel Rhinestones coloured with Old Olive Blendabilities (have I told you how much I love those?! check out my latest Club for more!)
And that is my Challenge entry!
