Monday… back again! That weekend really flew by! What did you all do for the Super Bowl? I went to my friends house and had a good laugh and played with the little ones. It’s always a good time! I have to order my February 25th Anniversary Stamp Set and the Sent with Love bundle, I can’t wait to get that little plane! Did you order yours yet?!
For today’s post I have my Splitcoast Creative Crew projects for the February challenges. They come up with some good ones over there! I’m going to show you each card and then the products separately at the end.
My first card is f0r the Focus Challenge. They choose a doily as the product focus this month. I could be a stamped, punched or a paper one, I choose the new Tea Lace Paper Doilies for my project. The base of this card is Whisper White Card Stock. I used the Distressed Dots Background Stamp, inked in Certainly Celery, with some Certainly Celery for my background. Next, I adhered a Tea Lace Paper Doily to the card with SNAIL. The tea cup, and all of the other stamps, are from the Tea Shoppe Stamp Set. The tea cup is stamped in Versa-Mark on Certainly Celery and heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I used my Sponge Daubers to “color in” some areas using the emboss resist technique with Wisteria Wonder. The greeting at the top is stamped in Wisteria Wonder and punched out with the Extra Large Oval Punch. I backed it with a piece of Whisper White that i cut out with the Labels Collection Framelits Dies and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The tea bag is stamped in Wisteria Wonder on Certainly Celery and punched out with the Large Tag Punch (Vintage) and backed with a piece of Whisper White punched out withe the Extra Large Tag Punch. I punched a hole in the top and used some Wisteria Wonder Bakers Twine for the string. I love the Tea Shoppe stamps with the Tea Lace Paper Doilies, they make a fun card!
Next up we have a Color Challenge. The colors are Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Pretty in Pink, Very Vanilla and Sahara Sand. The base of my card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. I stamped the Woodgrain Background Stamp in Sahara Sand on Sahara Sand for the background. The greeting and the butterflies are from the Cross My Heart Stamp Set. The greeting is stamped in Raspberry Ripple and cut out with my Paper Snips. For the butterflies I stamped them in Primrose Petals and punched them out with the 1″ Square Punch. Some Pretty in Pink is punched out with the Postage Stamp Punch and used to back the butterflies. All of the elements are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I think the postage stamps work well around the greeting and I like the woodgrain background.
For my final card we had a Holiday Challenge. I went with Valentine’s Day since it the next one! The base of my card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Pool Party with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for my background. The hearts and flag are form the Hearts a Flutter Stamp Set. The large scallop heart is stamped in Primrose Petals, the smaller heart in Pool Party on Pool Party and the flagged one in Primrose Petals. They are all cut out with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits Collection Dies. The tickets are from the That’s the Ticket Stamp Set and are also stamped in Primrose Petals and I punched them out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch. All of the elements are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the tickets and the Honeycomb folder is definitely one of my favorites!
