Last week, I mentioned an upcoming challenge I had been working on with Joanne Basile, Just a Little Something, and Dawn Easton, Treasure Oiler Designz. The big day for the first "What You've Got" or "WYG" Challenge is finally here! Once a month, Joanne will be challenging Dawn and I to use a selection of Stampin' Up! supplies that we already own, "What You've Got" or "WYG". After we show you what we've come up with, the challenge is raised to YOU! The idea is to get inspired by the Stampin' Up! supplies you already have.
The first challenge Joanne issued to Dawn and I was to make a LONG card using Bali Breeze DP. By long card, we mean the size that fits into a standard business size envelope. My cards measure 4" x 9 1/4". Head on over to Joanne's blog, Just A Little Something for all the details of this fun challenge! I hope you'll play along with us! (The SCS keyword will be WYG.)
I ended up making two cards for the first WYG Challenge. The flower on this first card was created by simply cutting out the large flower from the Bali Breeze DP twice, layer and stagger the two, and adding Flower Fusion and a Turquoise Rhinestone Brad.
Stamps: Phrases for a Friend (Occasions Mini '08)
Paper: Bali Breeze DP, Whisper White
Ink: Rose Red Classic Ink Pad
Embellishments: Flower Fusion, Turquoise Ice Circle Rhinestone Brad
Supplies: Stampin Dimensionals
This second card uses all the Old Olive patterns in the Bali Breeze DP pack with Rose Red accents. I don't think my Doodle This flowers look quite ripe, what do you think?! LOL! Yep, Old Olive flowers! Weird, huh?!
The Doodle This flower was stamped twice in Basic Black onto Bali Breeze DP then cut out and staggered. I curled the flower petals around a pencil for a 3-D appearance. A small Flower Fusion was placed in the center of each flower with an Old Olive Brad.
It's difficult to tell in the photo but there is Paper Piercing on the Rose Red CS strip above and below the Old Olive 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon.
