Sweet Pea Stampers - 14 January 2011


Over at the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge Blog the challenge this fortnight is "all white apart from the image" - yikes - every time I see an all white card I run a mile and don't enter - sorry Sweet Pea Stampers.  I was though talking to a friend yesterday and she was going to do a card to enter so I decided to do one too.  I even made the challenge even more difficult for myself as I made it fit on a A6 card.  I don't use this size any more on a day-to-day basis but it's that time of the year for us here in the UK when the Docrafts Cancer Research even will take place when crafters make A6 cards, put them in the special envelopes provided and either send/take into a Marie Curie shop and these are sold at £1 each to raise funds.  Last year I made 100 cards.  Not sure how many I'll get done this year but I've made my first now!!!

For my card I have used my Forest Blue Ching-Chou Kuik Sweet Pea stamp and coloured it in with Promarkers, highlighted areas with my Sakura Stardust clear pen, cut the image out with my oval scallop Nestabilities die, distressed the edges with a purple Versamagic chalk ink pad and then highlighted the scallop area with some Stickles.  The backing pieces are plain white card stock, one put through my scroll Cuttlebug folder and the other put through my script Cuttlebug folder.  I have distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and edges with Stickles.  The card is then finished off with some lace, flowers/leaf/butterflies die-cuts all highlighted with Stickles, white card candy and some white fibres.

I am pleased how the card came out although I have to admit that I wasn't going to enter this challenge due to the all white.

This card also fits the following challenges:

Ai Factory - Anything goes
Stampin B's - Use a die-cut on your card/project
Do You Stack Up? - Distress it
Glitterbabe - Anything goes
Moving Along with the Times - Dreams - this image is very peaceful and I (a) dream that this year is a lot easier for me and my family and for so many people who had an awful 2010 and (b) dream of being able to make lots and lots of cards for the Docrafts Appeal.
Some Odd Girl - Let's get embossed
Hodge Podge - White on white
Stamp Something - Anything goes
The Stamp Man - Distressed
Crafty Emma - No designer papers
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - Anything goes
Our Daily Bread - Wing it
Kort o Mania - Fantasy/adventure
Shelly's Images - Use lace
Pile it On - Anything goes
