Pattern Play - Day 4

For day 4's class I combined a few of the techniques shared.  I altered my pattern the striped patterned paper with stripes of stickles.  I also added stickles to some of the other papers, including vintage photo distress stickles on the brown polka dots which you can't see in the photos.  The other technique I used is the scoring/sanding on my background paper.  I did this on card stock instead of on patterned paper for more contrast to the circles of patterned paper.

Pattern Play - Day 3

Day 3 of the Pattern Play class over at Online Card Classes was about using large scale bold patterns.  I dug through my stash of older papers and found this one that I never used because the pattern was much too large for my typical style of card making.  It's not that bold as far as colors go, but the pattern is so I went with it.  I also cut the circle embellishment out of another sheet of coordinating paper from the same paper stack (from another day's class topic).

Pattern Play - Day 5 (I think)

I'm getting my homework days mixed up so I hope I'm correct in saying this is day 5.

Pattern Play - Day 2

I'm really behind on the class.  Here's one of the techniques from day 2.  I kept my card super simple to focus on the technique.

Pattern Play - Day 1

I'm taking the Pattern Play class over at Online Card Classes.  I love those classes because they inspire me to create.   Here's my card from Day 1.

10 Minute Craft Dash #14

I've got another card for the 10 Minute Craft Dash to share today.  I was really excited for this color combo because it screams spring to me and I've got spring fever.  I also used a brand new stamp set called Flower Friend by Simon Says Stamp.  I was dying to break that one out.  The ink colors I used are all Stampin' Up - Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, Crumb Cake and Old Olive.  I also used Stazon Black for the sentiment, Stampin' Up! Melon Mambo card stock and Neenah Solar White card stock.  I made almost one layer card by masking out the sentiment area with post -its.

Here's my card and time...

10 Minute Craft Dash 13 - just made it!

Whew - I just made it with a time of 9 minutes 59.8 seconds!
It took me over 5 minutes just to stamp the background.  I don't know what made me think that all that lining up stamps and changing ink colors would be a good idea for a time challenge - doh!

Anyway, here's my card.  I used a Mama Elephant stamp set called Trifecta for the background and an exclusive stamp set from Simon Says Stamp for the sentiment.  Ink and card stock and button is all Stampin' Up!  

Head on over the the 10 Minute Craft Dash challenge at Pretty Pink Posh and play along.  
There's a prize :)
