Second Sunday Morning Challenge


OK, the turnout last week was a little light, but I decided to post another challenge anyway. If nothing else, these are fun for me and force me to come up with new designs. So once again, here are the challenge particulars:

Main Image Stamp Set: Tag Time

Colors: Tempting Turquoise, Orchid Opulence, Gable Green, Whisper White (and you may, but don't have to use basic black, going gray or Sahara sand ink and/or card stock for accents)

Layout -- as you see in the photo, thought you can play with the dimensions to make them fit your card just as long as the basic layout is the same.

Permitted: Any background stamps, sentiment stamps, accessories, embellishments, techniques, etc. Be creative!

I picked the Tag Time set because I hope a lot of readers purchased it during the special in December an, therefore, will be able to play. This challenge is open to everyone. It will run for 1 week, though I plan to make my card today and if you do as well let us know so others can be inspired. If you make a card and upload it to your splitcoast gallery or to your blog or web site, leave a comment here with a link. Or, if you prefer, e-mail me a photo/scan of your card to stampwithdiane@comcast.com with permission to upload it here and I will be happy to post it for all other readers to see.

I will once again post my first card tomorrow night (No, I haven't stamped it yet, but I do still need a Mother's Day card, so I'll probably be stamping tomorrow morning). I can;t wait to see what you come up with!

And Happy Mother's Day to everyone!

I am enjoying looking at the creations but I don't have this stamp set either....just an idea but how about creating a little poll for your blog about which stamp sets people would like to see you feature in a challenge? *G*

This looks like tons of fun and I have this set!!! Woo Hoo gonna play with this one for sure. Just a side note, the first flip books that I made I had made for gifts and gave them away before I was able to take pics but I've made a couple more now and will get them loaded sometime today. Hope you had a GREAT weekend.
