In the meantime, here are some cards I made over the weekend. The Stamphaven group were holding a spring-themed Challenge week last week and I made some time to play. (Interested? The board is free, and you can go check out the challenges and posts any time to get some inspiration.) I hosted a challenge on one of my favourite topics - punched flowers. The hardest one was the 'raid your stash' challenge - not because you had to dip into old supplies, but because you had to incorporate a rubber stamp that you owned and had never used for a card! I really don't do a lot of stamping and I made plenty of cards that qualified on the stash front, but without a stamp.
|Colour challenge - red/orange; and punched flowers|
|Colour challenge - red/orange and punched flowers (flower was made with a circle punch and a tree punch)|
|Black and white challenge|
|Black and white challenge again, made with scrap cardstock and a Martha Stewart border punch|
|'Clear the Clutter' challenge - using stuff you had lying around on your desk and in your stash)|
|3D challenge (the bird is done in four layers with cardstock scraps inbetween to raise them more subtly than popdots)|
|Fruity card challenge|
