It's time for another Stash Challenge, and this week, Holly Young challenged me to dig out my "collection" of epoxy stickers and put them to good use! I'm embarrassed to say how many I have. Some I collected back when I scrapbooked alot, but a lot of them have fallen into my cart as I pass by the dollar bins at Michaels. How many of those do YOU have? Well, I challenge you to dig 'em out, and show them the love! Link your creation to this post by comment or upload to SCS with the keyword SXSC08!
Check out Holly's creation! Now how adorable is this? Such a fun and sweet Easter card, and that sentiment just kills me! The little epoxy flowers are perfect little embellishments, and I love the shimmery ric rac!
You can find out all the details of Holly's card on her blog; Hogwild about Stamping. Thank you so much for the challenge Holly! I hope you got a bit of satisfaction putting a few of those little stickers into play!
Now, I have to confess, I found this to be the most difficult stash challenge yet, although you`d think I had a love affair with these little babies given the amount that I have! I also added another element to my first card, in that since Julie cased herself for our 300K Celebration, I figured I should too! So my first card is a case of this card of mine.
While I have a lot of the stickers, they were all so diverse and colourful, I had a really hard time settling on one set. I finally decided to go with the simplest image and pulled out Verve`s Seeing Stars set. This is a classic favorite of mine, and I love that it works with my SU! star punches.
I kept it fairly simple, adding three epoxy stars on the left and some glimmer ribbon along the top. The sentiment is from Starlight Starbright, and I was tickled pink when it fit inside the large star, making it a quick finish!
Now, I also wanted to use one of the epoxy slide mounts I had purchased...but so far had never used, so I did another card. I kept it simple because it was getting late! I thought the colours were a perfect match for So Saffron and Sage Shadow, and they were pretty close. I was quite drawn to the split of the colours and wanted to create a reverse look on the card. It`s pretty cool lined up like that.
The stamp set is Verve`s Floral Symphony, and I stamped it in Versafine Onyx Black and coloured it with my SU! markers. The image is popped up on dimensionals with a ribbon tab and there is piercing all along the edges of the designer papers. I finished it with three So Saffron brads and that`s all she wrote! The sentiment is from Feeling Groovy.
How would you like to win Floral Symphony..and more! Well, yesterday I asked you to case me, and link your creation by comment to this post. So today, you are going to check out Julie`s blog or SCS gallery and pick a card of hers to case. This time you will link it to this post on her blog! You have until midnight Monday, March 30, and we`ll select a random winner on Tuesday, March 31. You can check out Julie`s blog to find out what she`s giving away, but I`ll tell you mine right now! For Day 2 of our Celebration, Julee at Verve has graciously donated a Fun With Florals bundle! That`s 5 stamp sets! Both Julie and I will draw a winner from all the entries each day, so there will be four winners in all!
Case me(Laura), and link to this post on Laura`s blog, or upload to SCS with the keyword CEL300L.
Remember to link the card you cased in your post or upload, and change at least two things, and yes, you can case as many cards as you like, and enter as often as you like on both days of our Celebration!
