Thursday Showcase Challenge #301

Wednesday, October 10, 2018
Another week has flown by and here we are with a Thursday challenge! The weather in Minnesota has been gray and dreary with tons of rain. It's super depressing, but the leaves are changing color so that helps a little. It helps that in one month I'll be traveling to Orlando to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Stampin' Up! at OnStage Live. WOOO HOOO. Seriously!

In the meantime, here's my take on this week's showcase challenge. The showcase features products from the Frosted Floral suite on pages 35 & 36 of the Holiday Catalog.  It's beautiful, and a little bit untraditional. The paper is shimmery on both sides, and uses a lot of Blackberry Bliss, Tranquil Tide, and Gray Granite. Working with these definitely help reduce some of these early Fall doldrums.
While I was at it, I made a cute little milk carton box using the same products. I found the instructions for the milk carton at Pootles and decorated it using the items from the First Frost Suite. 

Color Challenge - DoStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #300

Wednesday, October 3, 2018

Congratulations to Dawn Olchefske for helping our team get to 300 Thursday Challenges. Wow! I've only been around for a few, but it's always fun to see what everyone does! This week is a color challenge and now that we've crossed into October, it's time for Halloween colors. I have fun making Halloween more than almost any other season, and have been known to collect tons of Halloween stamps. 

This year I pulled from my September Paper Pumpkin monthly subscription kit to embellish my project and used a classic Stampin' Up! set - Lovely As A Tree for the stamped background. The ghost, bat, and EEK sticker are from the Paper Pumpkin kit, and I created the sponged background using the colors from the challenge.

One of my favorite new products is a simple little die from the Winter Woods bundle, but I'm going to be using it a LOT! It's just a little curve, but put it in the middle of a rectangle and all of the sudden you have two rolling hills. AWESOME!
