Sunny Challenge No. 23

January 15, 2012

We have some changes happening at Sunny Challenges & Creations beginning this week.  Firstly Gwen has decided to take some time off to devote to her family and although we will miss her we totally understand that family must come first.  That’s one of the reasons we are Stampin’ Up! demonstrators because our business can be as flexible as we like.  We hope that Gwen’s absence is only a short one.  Most of you have heard me speak of Shirley, my very talented downline, and Vicky, Gwen and I are delighted that she has agreed to fill in for Gwen.  Shirley does some amazing work and has actually set our challenge for today (nothing like being thrown in at the deep end).

Ok, so our challenge this week is to create something with a Valentine theme – it could be a card, scrapbook page or 3D item.  I decided to make a card.

I embossed a piece of Whisper White card stock using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder, wrapped it with Real Red 5/8″ Satin Ribbon, tied a knot and attached it to scored and folded Real Red card stock.  I cut Real Red cardstock using the middle sized oval on the Ovals Originals Die.  Once cut I placed it inside the Oval Designer Frame and embossed it.  I punched Whisper White card using the Extra Large Oval and  embossed it using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  I attached the embossed Whisper White card inside the Real Red Oval Frame and attached it to the front of the card.  I stamped “love you” from the Short and Sweet stamp set (I would be really lost without this set), punched it out using the Word Window Punch, attached it to a Real Red Modern Label and then to the card front.  I punched Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink and Real Red card stock using the Heart to Heart Punch I embossed the larger two “pink” hearts using the Perfect Polka Dots and Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folders.  I used dimensionals to attach the large hearts around the oval frame and used snail to add the two small real red heart.

I think it is kind of nice and not too girly – I might even give this one to my hubby.

So now you have seen my card, visit Shirley and Vicky and then once you have card (etc) ready visit Sunny Challenges and Creations and add it to Mr. Linky.  We look forward to seeing your fabulous creations again this week.

Bye for now, Kris.
