Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Color

Simon Says Stamp's new challenge is Color - yay!  I love color :)
I was playing around with a new Simon Says Stamp stamp set from the April card kit and came up with this for the challenge.  I love the line of dots stamp from that kit although mine aren't all that straight, but I like it that way.

10 Minute Craft Dash # 16

Hello.  I'm here again with another 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge.  This one is sponsored by Avery Elle and you can have a chance to win a $20 gift card to Avery Elle by participating in this challenge.

For this card I took out one of the very first stamp sets I ever bought.  I can't even remember who the manufacturer is, but I still love it because it's so graphic with all the dotted circles.  I created my own background paper with the stamps using the colors in the challenge.  I also used one of my newest stamp sets for the greeting.  It's an exclusive from Simon Says Stamp.
I used Melon Mambo and Gumball Green ink from Stampin' Up! and a colorbox in for the purple.
Ribbon is Melon Mambo from Stampin' Up! and the Striped patterned paper is also Gumball Green from Stampin' Up!

10 Minute Craft Dash #15

Well, I messed up my blog post scheduling and thought this posted yesterday - oops!

Today I'm sharing another card for the 10 Minute Craft Dash.  If you haven't tried one of these 10 minute challenges you should - it's so much fun to try and beat the clock!  I've been coming so close to 10 minutes lately I think I need to simplify my ideas.  For this card I used strips of card stock for the background and then stamped and embossed with white embossing powder.  The problem I ran into for this was that my card stock has different thicknesses so it didn't stamp well and I smeared it a little.  Normally I would redo it, but knew I wouldn't make it in time so I had to accept it and move on. 

Head on over to the 10 Minute Craft Dash challenge and give it a try.  There's a prize!
