Challenge Cards from Stamp Club Members!

We had a great Stamp Club today! Thanks to those who came, and we missed you girls who couldn't make it! Every month I give the Stamp Club members a challenge to complete...this month they had to follow this sketch from Beate and use the materials I gave them...Real Red and Very Vanilla card stock, as well as Dashing DSP, Real Red Eyelets, and Artichoke & Red Grosgrain Ribbon. They could use any stamps they wanted and add anything else to the card. Only two girls actually completed the challenge, but I know how crazy life is in December, so I just hope they get a chance to use the materials for something fun later!

Love this card from Beverly Mohler...she used one of my all-time favorites Alphabet's a retired set I had to keep, being a "letter/font" junkie!

This awesome card is from Lori Franklin. I love how she cut her Dashing piece of paper up and used both sides, and how the eyelets mimic the circle design on the paper!

I hope (and think!) they enjoy these challenges, because I know I do! It's so cool to see how people use the same materials in different ways, like how they used the same sketch here, but oriented the cards in different directions. I think it's Creating Keepsakes magazine that has a column like this, and I always love it too.

I'll be back tomorrow with some more new stuff, hopefully! I went to my all-day crop yesterday, well ended up being there 9 1/2 hours and made a one page layout and a two page layout. Yep, that's it! ha! ha! But I talked and shopped and talked and ate and talked...a great time either way...and I'll have some scrapbook pages to show again...maybe it's time to reinstate Scrapbook Sunday again...or maybe I'm getting a little too cocky after one week off work...or maybe I shouldn't type on my blog every random thought that comes into my head...hmmm! =)
