June's Creative Crew Challenges Cont'd

I have some more Splitcoaststampers' Creative Crew Challenge samples to share.

For the holiday-focus challenge, we used a love bird ensemble inspirational photo to create a project that involved birds, maybe for a wedding, although not necessarily. For my project, I actually made an ATC, which was my swap at the Syracuse shoebox swap a few weeks back. I used the flower punch from the Itty Bitty punch pack, so it also be a sample for the flower challenge this month.

I saw the idea to put the love birds inside the "O" of love from Cindy Elam, which I thought was brilliant!

Stamps: Love You Much, Clearly For You; Paper: Marina Mist, Very Vanilla, Bride Specialty DSP; Ink: Chocolate Chip, Marina Mist, Chocolate Chip marker, Marina Mist marker, Pear Pizzazz marker; Accessories: Sponge, Itty Bitty punch pack, 3/4" Circle punch, Cog punch (for circle), Pearl jewels, Baja Breeze seam binding, Button, Linen thread, Dimensionals.

The scrapbook-focus challenge is to incorporate a poem into your project. Well, my project warped into 3-D framed art.

Lots of sponging and grunging. This is taken from a project I saw in another publication, and I reproduced for a little birdhouse project, but I really wanted to make some framed art. This would make a great house warming gift.

And, all my projects this month incorporate flowers... more of that flower-making illness I was talking about. This time I wanted to use the new Doily triple layer punch. So this one also applies for the catalog-focus challenge.

Stamps: French Foliage; Paper: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, First Edition DSP, Newsprint DSP, Le Jardin DSP; Ink; Soft Suede, So Saffron, Sahara Sand, Whisper White craft, Soft Suede marker; Accessories: Sponges, Neutrals Collection button, White Baker's Twine, Baja Breeze glass glitter, Doily triple layer punch, Scallop Trim edge punch, Modern Label punch, non-SU chipboard heart.

Please stop in and play with us!

Ok, those flowers on the house warming gift... to die for! I have to figure out how to make those. I suffer from the same illness as you!

Wow! I love the bird in the O. Very creative! The framed box, though, is simply amazing.
