Creative Crew Challenges

Happy Friday!!  I'm off to take my boys and their friends to the water park today - trying to make the most of our last few days of summer!  Where has the time gone??  A new month means a new set of challenges over at SCS from the Creative Crew.  I have really enjoyed being part of this team for the last four months.  I can't believe it's almost over.  :(

I want to share with you a card I made for one of this month's challenges:

Products Used:
Stamps:  Yippee-Skippee! (#131344)
Ink:  Baked Brown Sugar
Paper:  Vellum, Eastern Elegance, Crushed Curry, Baked Brown Curry, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White
Other:  Big Shot, Apothecary Labels, Labels Collection Framelits, Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Canvas Creations, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Mini Brads, Large Rhinestone Basic Jewels

I had fun making this card!  I couldn't believe how easy it was to stamp and die cut the Canvas Creations!  What a fun product!  I also love the way vellum looks against DSP - such a nice, subtle look!

Here is the Creative Crew Challenge that inspired me to create this card:

CCREW0813CF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM -- Catalog focus: Beyond the paper basics, take a look at page 156 of the main catty, WOW us with one of the following "beyond the basics" products: Canvas Creations, Vellum Cardstock, Window sheets, or Coaster board sheets. Challenge yourself to think outside of your normal comfort zone, most of the things you can do with cardstock you can also do with these products, stamp on them, die cut them, turn them into boxes/bags/etc, look into mixed media art, try something different (who knows it could be your next big seller!)

You can check out the Creative Crew Gallery for more inspiration.  We'd love for you to play along and add your project to the gallery!

There's a new stamp set this month helping us to celebration Stampin' Up!'s 25 year anniversary!  Introducing the Best of October Stamp Set:

You can purchase this stamp set and see the other "Best of" stamp sets in My Online Store here.

Thanks for visiting and have a fabulous Friday! :)
