PP284 & CYCI109 Challenges!

Hi Stampers! I decided to play along with two challenges today. I'm all caught up in posting the cards I made ahead of time and wanted to have a little bit of challenge fun. I plan on doing this a little more often.

When I first started stamping years and years ago, I used to participate in challenges quite a bit and this is a great way to learn. For today I chose a color challenge from Can You Case It combined with a sketch challenge from The Paper Players. So this:

Plus This:

Equals this:

I dug out my Kinda Eclectic stamp set paired with the Bohemian Designer Paper for a really neat look with the color combo of Delightful Dijon, Tempting Turqouise and Whisper White:

The sentiment is from Starburst Sayings. I also used the Brick Wall Embossing Folder on the turquoise layer. Here are all of the Stampin' Up! supplies I used for today's challenge card:
  • Stamps: Kinda Eclectic, Starburst Sayings
  • Inks: Delightful Dijon, Tempting Turquoise
  • Cardstock: Delightful Dijon, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
  • DSP: Bohemian
  • Tools: Brick Wall Embossing Folder, Stampin' Dimensionals, Lots Of Labels Framelits Dies, Washi Label Punch, Bitty Butterfly Punch, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Cutie Pie Thinlits Dies (scalloped edge)
Make sure you visit The Paper Players and Can You Case It to see some wonderful projects & inspiration on both blogs!
