EEK! I was so excited last month when I was asked to join the Creative Crew over at Splitcoast Stampers for their next term! Over the next four months, we'll be sharing our projects for the monthly challenges. At the beginning of each month, we'll post them over on the SCS gallery and I'll post mine here on my blog. We have four challenges each month that focus on different things - so fun!!
Here is the "theme" for our challenges this month:
Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, tired bears are coming out of hibernation it’s time to party!!! Errrrr, I mean…time for spring!
So much begins to happen right now graduations, showers, weddings, birthdays, reunions, and probably a lot more than I've mentioned! With that in mind I'd like you to check out this site:
25 Parties to Ring in Spring | The New Home Ec
Pick a party, any party, be inspired by the colors, the decorations, the foodie stuff, the patterns, the prints, oh my there is so many ideas here!
And we have four different challenges to play along with all month long. Here is the first one:
CCREW0513DF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM -- DSP/Color Focus: All of our DSP is likely to be leaving us after this month, so use whatever DSP or color combo that includes brights & pastels to go with the party you've picked.
And here is the card I created for this challenge:
I chose the Spring Butterfly Party as my inspiration. The soft colors reminded me of the Tea for Two DSP. And of course I had to add the doilies and butterfly. :)
Stamps: Curly Cute
Ink: Soft Suede, Pink Pirouette
Paper: Tea For Two, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
Other: Vintage Faceted Buttons, Lucky Limeade Twine (retiring... sniff, sniff), Paper Doilies, Basic Pearl Jewels, Beautiful Wings Embosslits, Tasteful Trim Bigz Die, Big Shot, Sponge Dauber
I had fun creating this card. Pastels aren't usually my fave... so it's fun to challenge myself! :)
