1 Card 3 Challenges!

Hey there stampers! Hope you are having a terrific weekend!  It's been a busy one for us.  I had a garage sale yesterday that pretty much consumed my day but was fun and today we are packing up our trailer for our first camping trip of the season next weekend.  We are praying that we have great weather so we can enjoy the boat and beach!

Today's card combines 3 challenges!  First I used the challenge colors of the week brought to us by the ladies at the Diva Coffee Break Designs blog to use Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa and Certainly Celery.  Next I used the Mojo Monday sketch of the week and finally I made a fun dimensional flower using the Extra Large Fancy Flower Punch to qualify for the Cute Card Thursday challenge to make it dimensional!


  1. Start with a Certainly Celery card stock base and run it through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing folder.
  2. Stamp the large image from the Fresh Cuts stamp set in Certainly Celery on Whisper White and mat onto Pretty in Pink.  Adhere to card.
  3. Add some Certainly Celery Grosgrain Ribbon around card hiding the ends under where you will add the flower later.
  4. Die cut Certainly Celery and Close to Cocoa card stock using the Big Shot and the Little Leaves Sizzlit.  Spritz the Certainly Celery leaves using the Certainly Celery Stampin' Write Marker and the Color Spritzer Tool to add some interest.  Adhere to card using the 2-Way Glue Pen (easier to apply to little stem areas than SNAIL)
  5. Punch Pretty in Pink card stock with the Extra Large Fancy Flower Punch 3 times and crumple up and unfold.  Sponge edges with Pretty in Pink ink.  Add a pink brad to the center and adhere to card using Dimensionals.
