CCREW0612CF: June Creative Crew Challenge, Catalog Focus

For June, the second Creative Crew Challenge was a Catalog Focus challenge. The challenge rules said to “use one ‘new’ item in combination with one ‘old’ item. [Not] ‘old’ as in age or vintage…something that has been in catalog for a while.”

Once again, I used Primrose Petals, this time as my “something new,” along with the sentiment from ¬†Sweet Essentials. For the “something old,” I used the Create A Cupcake stamp set and the Cupcake Punch. As someone pointed out, it also has something borrowed (the stamp & punch) and¬†something¬†blue!ūüôā Hope you like it!

CCREW0612DF: June Creative Crew Challenge, Color Focus

Each month, the Creative Crew on Split Coast Stampers (SCS) hosts four challenges for SU! Demonstrators. For June, the first was a Color Focus challenge. The challenge rules said to “use just three colors: Basic Gray, White, and one new In Color. You can pick any new color you want, but your project can only have three colors, no more, no less.”

Like yesterday’s project, I used Primrose Petals as my one new In Color; it seems to be one of my go-to colors at this pointūüôā Hope you like it!

happy day to you

CFC58: Pretty In Pink

If you’ve looked at any of the previous cards I’ve posted here, or anywhere for that matter, you’ll notice that my style tends to lean towards “Clean and Simple” (CAS). Well, I recently found a blog of weekly challenges called CAS-ual Fridays and I’m really excited to post my very first entry! This week’s challenge was to make a CAS card using pink. I used one of the new SU! 2012-14 In Colors, Primrose Petals, as my pink of choice. I hope you all like it!

Cheers!

I’ve joined Stampin’ Up!

I know it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything. Life’s been crazy busy and I haven’t had a whole lot of crafting time. Things are settling down, though; and hopefully I’ll be able to spend some quality time with my paper and inkūüôā

Speaking of, you may have noticed that I’ve edited a number of previous posts, deleting some links. I’ve decided to step down from A Muse Studio and become an Independent Demonstrator with Stampin’ Up!; per my agreement with them, my blog cannot contain links to competing companies.

I’m really excited about the new 2012-13 catalog and the 2012-14 InColors. The new holiday catalog is coming next month and there are loads of fun products and ideas in there tooūüôā

Here’s a link to my Stampin’ Up! website:

Come check out the newest catalog, current promotions, and be sure to let me know if you want to host a class/workshop or if you have any questions.

Pictures of my newest card creations are coming soon!

sept 12 challenge blog

This week’s challenge was created by Tobey; here’s what she’s posted:

“use ribbon on your project, it can be as little or as much as you like, any kind of ribbon. You don’t need to use a muse|studio products to enter or to win…but if you have them, why not show them off?”

I created the card below for a Fall card swap:

The card measures 4.25″ wide and 5.5″ tall (1/2 of a letter size piece of paper, folded in half Рstandard size A2.)  Here’s the recipe:

  • Cardstock: wasabi* (card base), vanilla (square and sentiment)
  • Ink: some shade of brown – I think it was one of the shimmery Brillance Dew Drops^ (I can’t remember and I forgot to write it down!)
  • Stamps: Essential Sentiments (sentiment), Bounty of the Season* (wheat)
  • Accessories: glue dots, latte pearls (very small), orange satin ribbon
All supplies are a*muse studio unless otherwise indicated with ^ (holiday catalog items marked with *) and are available through my webstore. Remember, if you want to place an order of $150 or more, contact me so you can receive free product! Also, through Sept 30 there are bonus hostess rewards and an exclusive stamp set, so call or email me (pinkgeekstamper_at_gmail_dot_com) to schedule your class.
Be sure to check out the challenge blog to see more cards by consultants on the team!
