The tree that was stamped is from Inkadinkado, which was purchased at Michaels, the set has ll clear stamps in the set. Garden Green ink from Stampin Up! was my choice of color. Had an idea for the layout, by changing the colors of the background and patterned paper two challenges would be acheived. Pale paper from "heidi grace designs" collection was used for the first card. This paper is available at Joann's, open stock. These are definitely not your standard Christmas colors, but then again neither is my Christmas tree decorations, it is all pink and crystals. This paper was a must just didn't know what project it would be used for or when.
That was the hard challenge, now onto challenge #2, stars for GC, that was easy, changed the background paper that had stars and add a rhinestone star on top of the tree. The ovals for the tree stamp were made with my cutting system from Creative Memories, and a bow completed the card. Base of the card is 5"x 5", the papers are from my stash, am sure that everyone that has been doing scrapbooking or making cards will recognize the paper from eons ago.
Enjoyed taking on these challenges and am very pleased with the outcome. Challenges have become my inspiration for cardmaking and love all the different avenues that are available to us.
I have been given a new challenges at work to put out a weekly newsletter. Am very excited about the opportunity, hope that I am upto this new "challenge."
Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty day.
