It’s been quite awhile since I’ve done any crafting other than the get together’s with my card group. Now that we’ve taken a break for the summer, it’s seems like forever since I’ve done anything crafty. Now that my renovations are finally coming to an end, I have time to do other things without feeling guilty. I’ve been working on mini albums lately but took a break to participate in the recent Fiskateers Online Crop.
On July 28th & 31st, the Fiskateers had another online crop. Although I wasn’t able to participate during the crop on Wed or do any of those challenges, I did manage to do some of the crops posted on the 31st. Fortunately they had extended deadlines which made it perfect for me to participate. Surprising enough, I even won a prize for the Build Your Stash Challenge.
Here are my challenge cards:
Challenge #21-Build your card stash
Let's Build our Card Stash. Make 10 cards in all. This can all be birthday, or an assortment such as Birthday, Thank You, Get Well, Just Because, Thinking of You, Sympathy....what ever floats your boat.
Challenge # 23 Hide and Seek
What you need to do is go to your scraproom or where ever you keep your pattern paper. Then close your eyes and randomly select a sheet of patterned paper. That is the no cheating part. It takes the fun out of it if you cheat. Okay now that you have your pattern paper you are to create a layout or 2 cards using that piece of paper. To make it a little more difficult to cheat, you must take a picture of the pattern paper before you begin.
Challenge # 24 Stamp and punch card
For this challenge you are to use only 2 colors on your card, and also use one stamp and one Fiskars punch. You may use other items as well, but only two colors and you must have used at least one Fiskars punch and one stamp.
Challenge # 25 Punch me once, Punch me twice!
For this challenge you need to use two different Fiskars borders punches on either a layout or 2 cards. If you don't have two different punches, you may use a regular fiskars punch to make a border with.
Challenge # 26 (the last one) Going out with a bling, I mean a bang, I mean a Bling Bang!
Have your sunglasses ready for this one ladies~ For this challenge you are to make a layout or two cards using bling or glitter on it. You can use Stickles, glitter, glitter glue, any type of bling such as rhinestones etc. You be the judge of how much bling bang you can take.
Not bad, I managed to finish off 18 cards after such a long break. Next I'll be posting pictures of my recent mini albums when I finish them. TFL!!
