Stamp with Us Challenge

Hello everyone

Can you believe it is Sunday again already? I am really not sure where the time is going at the moment. Its been a busy week for us at the theatre with my OH and his son staring in the show. Now I know I am biased but I think they did a really great job. The audiences also seemed to enjoy their performances and everyone involved should be very proud of themselves. I did make thank you cards for the boys to give the crew but I did not get a chance to take a photo – whoops! I also spent an evening with some lovely ladies on Thursday many of whom were trying the Stampin' Up! Products for the first time - I had a blast and loved seeing what they created.

Anyway being as it is Sunday it is Stamp With Us Challenge Day. This week the challenge was a recipe challenge. We were asked to make a card with one patterned paper, two ribbons, a flower and a button. Here is the card I came up with.

I could not resist using my current favourite stamp again – Blooming with Beauty. This time the flower was coloured with my marker pens and stamped onto the Vellum Card Stock. One of the things I love about the Stampin’ Up! inks and markers is the variety of surfaces they can be used on. Also on this card you can see how well they work on the Twill Tape. If you are stamping or colouring onto vellum just work as normal but do remember that the ink takes a little longer to dry.

Ingredients for this card:
Card: Very Vanilla, Kraft and Vellum
Markers: Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust
Ink: Close to Cocoa
Papers: Haiku
Button: Button Latte Set
Ribbon: Twill Tape, Kraft Taffeta
Linen Thread

I have really enjoyed seeing how differently everyone interprets the challenge. I hope you decide to play along too, I would love to see what you come up with.
Unusually we have some lovely weather here – and its a long weekend – that never happens!!!! We are just off to see some friends for a BBQ so no crafting for me today, but I will be back with things to show you soon

Thanks for stopping by

Happy Crafting
