Happy Saturday stampers! First of all, I have to shout out a big woot-woot to Robin for being the winner of the challenge at Create with Connie & Julie! Way to go Robin, your project was just awesome!! Our second place winner was Sandra with another fabulous project…and an honorable mention goes to Jeannine, she had another great project! It was just so hard to choose! All of the projects this week rocked!!! Did you know that you can win fabulous prizes for playing along with the weekly challenges? That's right!
It's time for another challenge over at Create with Connie & Julie, and this week's challenge is to use Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Old Olive & Crushed Curry. This one was a little tricky for me, since normally I go for the softer, paler colors…but I ended up pretty pleased with my project, it's very perky and makes me think of warmer weather for sure!!
I created a "sandwich" of Melon Mambo card stock, a piece of the backing from a package of designer paper, then the Welcome Neighbor designer paper all adhered together, then I ran it through the Big Shot using the Scallop Circle die, leaving out 6 of the scallops at the bottom of the die to make my little purse flat on the bottom.
Next I created a box (CS 5×7", and on the 7" side score in 3" on both sides, then on the 5" side score in 1" on both sides), and I adhered that in-between my two scallop circles. Using the Daisies #2 die, I cut daisies in Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry, two of each size, then I added an Old Olive button on top (with a little strip of Melon Mambo CS through the center). Melon Mambo Polka-Dot grosgrain ribbon and two Circle Designer Brads finish it off.
Be sure and check out what the other design team members have created this week!
Looking forward to seeing your creations this week!
