Challenge Results

Well here are the results from the challenge that I posted last Friday. The Challenge was to create a card or scrapbook page using the colors: Basic Black, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, and you could add in Basic Grey if you wanted to. Then you had to use patterned paper (or make your own with stamps), use words/numbers as a focal instead of an image, use a tool that you haven't used in a while, and use an embellishment. I have to say that I love these colors!


This first card was created by my mom, Kathy. She used a patterned paper that she had in her stash as well as using the Always stamp set to make some patterned paper of her own. She used the Happy Everything stamp set to make the words of her focal point. Her embellishment was that cute black and white polka dot brad. Her tool that she hasn't used in a while was the paper piercer to make the faux stitching. Very cute!


This card was created by Jessica, my neighbor and stamp club member! She used the patterned paper that you can get as a Level 1 hostess gift. She also used the hostess stamp set, For a Friend to create the words of her focal point. She had two embellishment: Wild Wasabi double stitched ribbon and a cute jewel brad for the middle of her flower. So cute!


This is the card that I made for my sister for her birthday (Happy birthday Erica...if you are reading this your won't receive your card until tomorrow!). I used a black and white paper that I bought at a local craft store as well as textured Wild Wasabi cardstock to make the larger circle (I love textured cardstock). My focal point "24" was made with chipboard stickers that I had in my stash. I also used rub ons to have the card say, "Make a Wish". My embellishment was a large jewel brad. My tool that I haven't used in a while was the Coluzzle! I have to admit that I love that thing!!!


This scrapbook page was created by my freiend, and Stampin Up mama, Colette. She took some of the patterned paper that I had used. She used our trusty little Cricut to create the word "Friends" on her scrapbook page. Her embellishment was a few jewel brads. And the tool that she hasn't used in a while was the piece that roughs up edges from the cutter kit. You can see the rough edge better in the picture below. (Hey Colette...I saw Josh and Geri downtown yesterday!)


I thought that this was a really neat way to do journaling! Love it!


This is a scrapbook page that I created. I used a patterned paper that I found in my big box of paper that I hardly ever use! I'm a patterned-paper-aholic! Is that a real disease? Anyway...I used the acrylic "r" that I have had for a few years now as a focal point along with the quote, "Live, Laugh, Love." It's my favorite quote. My embellishments were black and white flowers with big jewel brads in the middle of them. And the tool that I haven't used in a while was my silver gel pen to write out the quote.


This was a fun challenge. I will have another one this week! Thanks for playing along and I can't wait to see what you come up with next!
