Those who can't keep up, combine challenges! Howdy folks, hope you are all having a fabulous week! Being as this summer isn't seeming to get any LESS insanely crazy than it is.... I thought I'd make one card for three challenges.
.....And if you don't believe me, let me just tell you that I rescheduled our summer vacation for the THIRD time yesterday, and the only way we could go at all was leaving town immediately after the boys race, and Ian and I flying back separately from hubby & the other two boys, so he can make it back for a very important meeting! But that could be a whole other blog post, so I'll just stick to the card, because (let's face it) I am pressed for time, lol! ;)
Anyhow, thought it would be a good thing to get smart about combining challenges! So, this is for this week's Retrosketches 20, Jingle Belles Red OR Green challenge (boy have I missed that challenge! and I am waaaaaay behind on holiday cards for the year, so I need to get crackin'!), and a new challenge I haven't tried before; CAS-ual Fridays challenge "lets strip." I figured since so many friends and designers I love are on their DT; like Lynn & Christina; I should give it a go! :)
My "dust it off" for today are these snowman stamps, circa 2005, Stampin' Up! "Cold Play." I have held on to these stamps, they have seen a LOT of love through the years, and when I saw the 3 hexagonal shapes on the card, I thought it might be fun to build a triangular snowman! I used the washi tape to create my background DP, and to make my snowman's scarf. It's bummer none of the tape is from my recent Lawn Fawn order because LF is sponsoring CASual Fridays this week :(. I stuck to all greens and blues because of the JB challenge, and I was also trying to be as CAS as possible. The sentiment stamp is TCP, from the snow bunny set. I dressed up the snowman with his washi scarf, a snowflake button, and some glitter gems.
And that is all for me today:) Have a great one!
supply list: stamps: SU! and TCP; washi tape: Target, K&Company; Martha Stewart Crafts; punches: EK Success; glitter gems: Crystal stickers; snowflake button: Dress It Up
DUST IT OFF: Some old stamps get fresh new life with some washi tape and a CAS color palette paired with lots of white. :)
