It's time to share some of this month's Splitcoaststampers' Creative Crew Challenge samples with you.
The catalog-focus challenge is to use any flowers except stamped flowers. Button flowers, felt flowers, die-cut flowers, punched flowers, crocheted flowers... you get the drift. Well, I have an illness. Stampin' Up makes it so easy with all the flower options, especially the Vintage Adornment flowers and Ribbon Rosettes from the previous Occasions mini. And although I had a ton of ideas for this challenge, I just couldn't use these pre-made babies. Well, I could, but I didn't. While they sit within reach of me, I have to make the flowers. Hopefully no one will beat me with a wet noodle.
I created some rolled Concord Crush flowers to create a clean and simple (CAS) card, using the Clean & Simple fall to layout #132. It was really fun to use stitching to create the stem and vein in the leaves!
ETA: These flowers are made like this tutorial. I use circle punches to make mine.
Stamps: Sincere Salutations; Paper: Pear Pizzazz, Very Vanilla, Springtime Vintage DSP, In Color DSP; Ink: Concord Crush; Accessories: Various Circle punches, Scallop Trim edge punch, Birds & Blooms die, Big Shot, Sewing machine, Thread.
The color-focus challenge is based on the Sunny Garden DSP color scheme, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, and Peach Parfait. I also used the flower punch from the Itty Bitty punch pack, so this card can also apply for the flower challenge.
This card uses Mojo Monday sketch #178.
Stamps: Thoughts & Prayers; Paper: Daffodil Delight, Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait, Very Vanilla, Greenhouse Gala DSP, In Colors DSP; Ink: Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz marker; Accessories: Sponge, Itty Bitty punch pack, Pearl jewels, Poppy Parade ribbon, Coluzzle, Scallop Circle #2 die, 3" Circle die, Big Shot, Sewing machine, Thread.
