Two of my demonstrator friends and I are having trouble scheduling an in-person stamping playdate, so we're doing a virtual one instead. Each of us came up with a challenge and we have 24 hours to complete all three challenges. It's been a blast and really helped spark some creativity.
My first card is based on Joanne's challenge to make something sweet -- chocolate, cupcakes, birthday cake, etc. This is what I did.
The second card is for Julie's challenge to use Baja, Eggplant, Pear Pizazz, and Peach Parfait. I'd been wanting to use the paper piecing technique with Kimono Kids for a while and this was the perfect opportunity. This card is dedicated to the other two Amigas: Julie and Joanne.
I LOVE the sentiment. It totally cracks me up because I think everyone has at least one of those relatives that is a little "out there". For some reason, scenes from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation are going through my head. This card took a long time because of all the cutting and coloring but seriously, how many people are you going to send it to?
My challenge was to use a "found object" to stamp with or use on the project.
I've been hooked on these little roses lately. Aren't they fun? You just need a scallop circle punch, a regular circle punch and a bamboo skewer. There are lots of tutorials on the web for them. Please note, that isn't me on the video, just a helpful tutorial.
In case you're wondering, I made Pioneer Woman's Crash Potatoes last night. They were fabulous.
