I love challenges!

I have three multi-challenge projects to show you today. I put in bold large letters the challenge names for each card, so you can see them easily and check them out.

Project #1 follows the Stampin' Sisters in Christ sketch challenge this week. GinaK is sponsoring it and giving away 2 beautiful stamps. I used colors from the Color Challenge at StampTV this week.

Stamps: Many Wishes (GKD), Scripture (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Ink: Summer Sun, Old Olive
Papers: Really Rust, Old Olive, Wild Saffron from K&Co.
Others: button by PTI, ribbon from stash, Nesties


Project #2 uses the CardPatterns sketch for this week. I'm sponsoring it this week, so make sure you come and join us. This also follows the StampTV Potluck Friday and Pile It On challenges. The papers are Emily's beautiful Rich and Shabby digipaper pack that I printed on pink cardstock. The paper on the left was printed as black and white, while the other was printed as a washout. These are options on your Word document.

Stamps: Take Flight, Eclectic Summer Sayings, Many Wishes (GKD)
Paper: Rich & Shabby digipaper pack, Black Onyx, PL Ivory
Ink: Memento Tux Blk, Copic markers
Others: ribbon by Michael's, sewing machine, pearls


Project #3 is actually not a card, but an Altered Notebook. This follows the StampTV Sept 3D challenge amd the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday's Mix it Up challenge to use " stamps, dp, textures, or a combination of all three to mix different patterns". I used 2 different patterned papers.


Stamps: Take Flight, (GKD), verse (Unity)
Paper: PL Ivory, My Mind's Eye PP
Ink: Memento Tux Blk, Copic markers
Others: ribbon by PTI, Martha stewart punch, pearls
, Labels 4 Nesties
