This Week's Challenge


Our Three Amigas Weekly Challenge is to make a card for a boy or man with any shades of the colors brown and blue. It can be for any occasion you choose.
I used the Parisian Breeze designer paper which is a very nice cardstock weight, textured paper, double sided. The Naturals White panel was embossed with one of the new Stampin' Up textured plates which are very cool! I stamped a sentiment right on the embossing in Chocolate Chip. Embellishments were the neutrals brads in Chocolate and linen thread. Cute and Curly stamp set along with matching punch for sentiment.
This challenge was combined with today's Featured Stamper, Kelly H, where I cased her pocket card layout, making changes to the paper, stamps, and embellishments used.




For this second card I used some of the large Pretties Kit white flowers, my new Prints Pack designer paper (Level 1 hostess choice), the Top Note die that was run through the Big Shot with the new texturz plate. I cut the flowers from Simple Friendship out of the same dp, added some Crystal Effects and some of the tiny silver beads from the Pretties Kit. Sentiment/flourish is from Yummy which is a Sale-a-bration choice, stamped in Pacific Point.
