Some challenges!


The current Impression Obsession challenge is to create a card with anything but a rectangle. I created a card (for a little grandson who loves cupcakes!) with Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Six, (such a unique set, I use them a lot!) and one of my favourite IO stamp sets.




You can enter these challenges with us too . See the I.O. blog for all the details - if you use your Impression Obsession stamps, you could win a $25 gift certificate!! Be sure to check out the rest of the design team's cards for inspiration; the links are here on the left.

The current Created by Hand Challenge is "yearning for spring." I used cheerful spring colours for this card, some gorgeous embossed paper from Quietfire Design, and one of their beautiful new Dreamweaver stencils with white embossing paste.


I'm posting some spring colour cards I've just had just published in Paper Creations too; they meet the current Charisma Cards challenge, which is to use "fruity colours."




Thanks for stopping by today!
