Last night I played along with the Virtual Stamp Night Challenges on SCS. They are a lot of fun and since you only have 45 minutes to complete each challenge I stuck with Clean and Simple Sketches. All of the sketches on these cards are from Clean and Simple Stamping.
The first challenge was to make 2 of the same card. The other rule was they had to have fun colors and there was a list of possible themes. One was food, so I went with my cupcake stamp from Wagon Full of Fun and the Sentiment from Sweet Little Sentiments. Paired with Walk in the Park designer series paper I love how it turned out.
Here are both cards sidey by side. Aren’t they fun?
|Stamps: Sweet Little Sentiments, Wagon Full of Fun|
|Paper:Kraft, Cameo Coral, Walk in the Park dsp, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White|
|Ink: Basic Gray, Chocolate Chip, Cameo Coral, Summer Sun, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White craft|
|Accessories:AquaPainter, Circle Scissors, eyelet border punch, mat pack, dimensionals, Baja Breeze double stitched ribbon, glue dot, Button Bouquet buttons, linen thread|
The second challenge was to make a wedding card with non-traditional bright colors. I don’t know if this is really considered bright, but it is to me. I used Pixie Pink paper and Pink Passion ink. Two colors I rarely use just because they are out of my comfort zone. I paired it with Old Olive and Kraft and to me these are non-traditional wedding colors.
|Stamps: All Holidays|
|Paper:Kraft, Old Olive, Pixie Pink, Whipser White|
|Ink: Pink Passion|
|Accessories:Big Shot, Manhattan Flower, White Organza ribbon, dimensionals|
The third challenge was to use Red, Black and White. I chose Riding Hood Red, Basic Black, Whisper White and some Candy Lane designer series paper. The stamps are from A Beautiful Thing and Very Versatile. It’s nice and simple, but yet it makes a bold statement.
|Stamps:A Beatiful Thing, Very Versatile|
|Paper:Basic Black, Whisper White, Candy Lane dsp|
|Ink: Riding Hood Red, Basic Black|
This 4th card is based on a late night snack with Elvis of fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches. The card had to include music and the colors Barely Banana, Creamy Caramel and Close to Cocoa. I didn’t have any music stamps so I drew in a few notes that the little bird is singing. I did stick to the color scheme.
|Stamps: A Kind Word, Sweet Little Sentiments, Pretty Petals background|
|Paper:Creamy Carmel, Barely Banana, Close to Cocoa, Whisper White|
|Ink:Basic Gray, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, So Saffron, Blush Blossom, Cocolate Chip, Ruby Red, Old Olive|
|Accessories:cutters tool kit, sponge, AquaPainter, dimensionals, mat pack, Latte button, mini glue dot, linen thread|
I hope you enjoyed these quick and fun cards. I have Product Spotlight video for you tomorrow.
