I have been a member of Splitcoast Stampers for over a year, and while I love viewing their site, I have never uploaded any of my work. They are hosting a wonderful challenge so I actually posted 11 entries. I posted them directly to Splitcoast’s site but I thought I should also add them to my blog.
Day 2 LOVEFEST2014B - Lovey Dovey Spring hosted by Stamping Bella
I took the challenge literally and used a dove! I picked a stamp from Whipper Snapper Designs – Birdie Bliss and used Spring soft colours with heart and flowers.
Day 3 LOVEFEST2014C - Doodle Do hosted by Taylored Expressions
I doodled dash lines for more interest on the cup holders. The stamps and dies are from Taylored Expressions – Joe to go. I layered my white card base with Neenah Desert Storm kraft paper that I cut down to further hint at a takeout cup.
For this challenge we were asked to share our organizational skills and include pictures of our crafting area. Well mine is a mess. I have spots for everything, however I tend not to put things back where they belong. I purchased numerous photo boxes from Michael’s when they were on sale, and I have put most of my stamps in Avery Elle storage bags and then I keep my stamp by manufacturer. I also upload all my stamps, dies and embossing folders to pinterest so I have a virtual library.
CHALLENGE : They put together 3 photos to use as inspiration for our project. I used the iron gate theme. I created a white on white card using Spellbinders - Gilded gate 2 and A2 Fancy Weave, plus MFT – Die-namics Keys and Locks
I used the four challenge colours-kraft, red, pink and white. I used MFT – Pure Innocence Love Is in the Air stamp, and the oval stax dies.
Day 7 LOVEFEST2014G Let’s Score! hosted by Scor-Pal
As this challenge was sponsored by scor-pal, I used an embossing folder and Scored lines as a decorative accent to the right side. Please excuse the photo, but I put the card on a tilt to highlight the embossing.
I found a sheet of postcards in my stash. They overpowered my stamped images, so I cut three postcards down, then added the little girl from MFT – Pure Innocence Will You Be Mine?
Day 9 LOVEFEST2014I Die Crazy Challenge hosted by Simon Says Stamp
I used the Lovebirds die – Cottage Kutz. I also added a heart button for the little extra love
Day 10 LOVEFEST2014J Cute & Fun or Classy & Elegant Challenge hosted by Paper Smooches
Paper Smooches have some of the most unique characters. I love their little critters. I used three of the Chubby Chums. I added the sentiments. I also used the tri-block die from Simon Says Stamps
Day 11 LOVEFEST2014K Lots of Lovely Layers Challenge hosted by Perfect Paper Crafting
I, personally own ALL the Perfect Paper Crafting’s Perfect Layers products. I used them all the time. I used 9 different layers. The stamp is from Lawn Fawn – summertime charm stamps and dies and the sentiment is from Taylored Expressions – Love bugs
I won the Day 9 draw from Simon Says Stamp and received a $25 SSS gift certificate. I also had two of my cards chosen for the Favorites for the week in the General Stamping forum at Splitcoast Stampers.
