 Hello! Welcome back to the new challenge!

We hope you are doing well and creating up a storm!

Here's our new challenge!


I borrowed this off the internet, so a big thank you to the original creator!  Pick any three in a line and incorporate that into your project for this challenge.  To really challenge yourself, try to do a black out and use everything!  Be sure to tell us which line you used!

Have fun and we look forward to seeing what inspires you from this board.!

I went across the top to use flower(s), watercolour and a fun fold card.

I went bottom left to top right to make this cute card for a male who is sick.
Paper piecing , butterfly and fun fold.
That is a tissue in the pocket that I folded.

I chose the right-hand column
- Fun Fold 
- Stripes 
- Any Shade of Purple
Thanks to this challenge I now know how to make paper pinwheels 
I learned from a tutorial on You Tube while I was looking for ideas for "Fun Fold" 
6x8 Traditional Paper layout

I used one of the diagonal lines: flower - butterfly - any shade of purple.  I used Distress Ink to colour and stamp my background and then Stampin' Up Gorgeous Grape ink to colour my stamped butterfly.  The flower is a paper embellishment just below the antennae.

I decided to go down the diagonal and went with flower, butterfly and any shade of purple...


I also went on the diagonal of flower, butterfly and any shade of purple!

#422: Stencils on a Project



I used a small box stencil along with gray spray ink to create my own background paper to accent this picture of my daughter having a glass of juice with a magnolia garnish poolside.


I used a Memory Box tree stencil with Distress Inks to create a winter scene.  I added a snow drift at the bottom of the trees using a die and then a deer using a die from Stampin' Up.


I finally got to use this Vicki Boutin stencil that I received in a SCT sampler years ago.  I thought the butterflies would be perfect for some rainbow stenciling for a Mother's Day card for my mom.


I've used a kaiser brickwall stencil on this card with a dark green mist. 

It looks brown on the kraft cardstock.
