Hi everyone, Happy Friday! Today we have a fun challenge from As You See It, these ALWAYS challenge me...speed stamping! Make your card in ten minutes or less, once you get all your supplies together!
This is hard for me because while I start out with an idea, I might change it at some point in the middle of the process, which might involve new dies, new stamps, you get the idea! So it took me a couple tries to get my time down to about 8 minutes and 45 seconds! So here we go:
I don't think I have used these feathers from Four Feathers maybe but two or three times, but I thought they would make a big bold statement on my very simple card. I had the Real Red card base already on my desk; cut out the stitched frame, stamped the feathers, added a sentiment and two enamel dots and it was done!
So let me show you my first attempt at 10-minute stamping; I saw a technique on A Stamp Above's blog (although I cannot find the exact post right now, I'll search for it!) where Kelly stamped on a window sheet with Stazon ink and colored the back with Blends, then backed her image with glimmer paper...so pretty! So that was my first attempt, and it went well until I got to the sentiment; I didn't like what I had picked out, so I ran over my time. But I'll share my final project with you anyway:
I used some Lovely Lipstick DSP, a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings, and the image is from Many Blessings:
When I had that one finished, I took my leftover pieces and made one more card!
This one uses the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments:
I cut out a candy cane with an Impressions Obsessions die and backed it with another piece of glimmer paper, and used the Lovely Lipstick leftovers and same sentiment as the second card:
And the unused original sentiment from the second card went on the inside!!
I have been trying to create two cards each time I sit down to stamp, and I was happy this day to create three! So I hope you'll play along with our timed stamping challenge! You CAN make a card in ten minutes or less--give it a try and share it with us at As You See It!
Bus stop Halloween....Ninja Turtle, Princess Ana and the Karate Kid!
Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!
