What did you do this past weekend?? Hopefully, you took a gander at the great sets that Clear Dollar Stamps is releasing today, but did you stamp or create?? I was excited to be able to participate in Virtual Stamp Night at SCS. It has actually turned into a weekend affair now, though, instead of one night. There were 17 challenges, and I completed 14 of them. For each challenge, we are allowed 45 minutes to complete our project. Whew ... lots of fast stamping and creating!! :) Super fun, though.

So, for a while, I will be showing some of the projects I submitted this weekend. Can't wait to hear what you have to say about them.

For this challenge, we had to make a card with some type of window on it. It could be an actual cut out on the card or it could be a stamped window. Alternately, we could make a shadowbox card. That's what I chose to do.

This was super fun to make, and I used my Cricut to cut my card base and the circle in the middle. I also used it to cut the leaves on the front. The Cuttlebug was used to emboss the leaves. I wish that I had thought to emboss the card base, but ... with only 45 minutes, I was trying to hurry!

So, what do you think? I wanted him to look like he was peeking out of a tree. :)

Stamps: What a Hoot (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Paper: close to cocoa, old olive, GP white
Ink: Memento black, Old Olive, Basic Brown, Copics
Accessories: Cricut, SCAL, Cuttlebug, pop dots, ribbon, brads, self-adhesive dots
Techniques: shadowbox card

Tomorrow, we'll look at a challenge involving a new technique for me. It was fun and easy.

Don't forget that Clear Dollar Stamps released their September stamps today!!!

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow.
