This last week they had some challenges for the Fan Club members over at SCS. I haven't been stamping a lot the last few days but I did get to play in a few of the challenges.
For Jody's ribbon challenge (who can resist a ribbon challenge? surely not me!) I wanted to use this fun Dasiy D's ribbon that I got from Jacksonbelle Embellishments. I went with the colors of the striped ribbon and used Mellow Moss, Always Artichoke and Elegant Eggplant cardstock from Stampin' Up. The inkadinkado birds were colored with reinkers and a blender pen. Heidi Swapp gems were used along the scallops I made with my SU slit punch. I really love the scallops that punch makes and I have decided against the new scallop punch from Stampin' Up because it's so easy to make scallops with the corner rounder and the slit punches.
My second card was for Jenn's inspiration challenge. Jenn selected a stunning black and white wedding cake with a huge lime green ribbon. I chose the colors and some of the cake details as inspiration. I punched two black squares with my nesties and attached them with some adhesive along the top. I used some SU Wild Wasabi designer paper stamped with a sentiment from SU. I added a white mat that just barely peeks out from under the DSP. A knot of white May Arts ribbon was added to tie it all together.
