Another Challenge...

I wanted to try two challenges today SCS Color Combo challenge, and SCS Try a New Technique Challenge. Monday was the Technique challenge: A stair step fold card. It was actually very easy and something I would have never thought to do on my own. The Color Combo was Basic Black and Pink Pirouette, Whisper White was optional. (I threw in some pretty in pink and a touch of Pink Passion). It is amazing...the two challenges I have done so far have made me go outside of my box. I would never have created this without the challenge, and I still can't believe that I did this one...It is really not my style! But I like it, so maybe it is my style now! :D

Stamps: Love owl-ways, A happy Heart
Paper: Holiday Happenings DSP, Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White CS, Basic Black CS
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Basic Black, Pink Passion
Accessories: Blender Pens, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Basic Black Ribbon, Dimensionals. Scallop Square punch, Scallop Edge punch.
Techniques: Stair Step Fold Card
Difficulty (1-Easy 5-Advanced): 2
I have to be honest: I did not use Basic Black CS like I say I did. I do not own Basic Black CS. For some reason, I kept thinking that I would never use it. Now I've wished I had it at least twice! I probably would have used more Basic Black CS on this card if I had some...Anyway, what I did do, was sponged Basic Black ink onto Whisper White CS. It looks almost the same...but not! :D
Oh and that xoxo pink pirouette paper, that you can get if you host a $500+ workshop with me! It also comes with some rub-ons and two other designs of paper, AND a set of four season stamps! It is like the best hostess gift ever! :D Talk to me if you're interested!


  1. I really like the "happy hearts" stamp! How much is that one?

  2. Click on the Holiday Mini on the Right side of my blog. Go to page 24-25. A happy heart is a set of stamps for $22.95 I think. Love owlways is on page 25 and is $19.95.

  3. It's soooo cute! I love that set, and haven't used it yet, so thanks for the inspiration!
