Hello everyone and welcome to Inspiration in Action! I'm excited to share something new with you today -- the HAVE IT YOUR WAY weekend challenge! If you're like me, the weekends are sometimes the best time to escape into your stamping space and spend a little creative time. I know there are always demands on your time and there's always something more to do, but sometimes on the weekends we are better able to carve out a little "self" time for the things we love doing. This challenge is MADE FOR YOU!
My HAVE IT YOUR WAY weekend challenge is designed to be completely flexible, allowing you to customize it to fit your time, your mood, your taste and your interests. You can choose to follow just the SKETCH challenge, just the COLOR challenge, or just the INSPIRATION challenge or any combination of the three! Now, doesn't that sound FUN! From time to time I plan to have guest artists to help inspire you and prizes and blog candy will sometimes be offered for those who participate! Although it's not required (unless you want to be considered for a prize), I hope you will leave a comment with a link to your challenge project so that we can all enjoy your creativity! Now, what are you waiting for? Come on, get stamping and do it YOUR WAY!!!
I used the Trust God, Flower Shop and Petite Petals stamp sets, Afternoon Picnic Designer Series Paper, Tea Lace Paper Doilies, Apothecary Accents Thinlet Dies and Basic Pearls for my challenge card this week.
Here's the Dimensions and instructions:
- Layer One -- Card Base -- Pear Pizzazz cut at 5.5 x 8.5", scored in the middle and folded
- Layer Two -- Wisteria Wonder Cardstock cut at 4 x 5.25" -- apply half of the Tea Lace Doily.
- Layer Three -- Afternoon Picnic Designer Series Paper cut at 3 x 3.5". Cut out the label shape from the Apothecary Accents Thinlet Die set with the Big Shot (save the actual label to use for a different project). Apply to card, using Stampin' Dimensionals. Stamp the sentiment through the already applied label. Apply flower or other embellishments. I used a different pattern from the DSP package to line the envelope.
So, what do you think! I hope it sounds like fun and I hope you'll want to play along with my challenge each week. I'll look forward to your comments and links to your posts and I promise to leave you a comment when I look at your project!
Thanks so much for visiting today. I hope I've left you with some ideas and inspiration to brighten up your weekend, maybe even your week!
