Shopping Our Stash # 358 - Summer Colour Challenge


Greetings & salutations crafty pals!!

Thanks for coming by to check out the latest challenge from the crew at SHOPPING OUR STASH

CHRIS is our host this week and she has selected this fab summer colour challenge:


As soon as I saw it I thought, oooohhhhhhh I have some pretty design paper with almost all of those colours in it!!

It's super old design paper from Stampin Up...so old that I no longer have any recollection what it was called.

I added the butterflies to add the missing colours from the palette.


For some reason I decided to hand stitch all the way around the card instead of doing it with a marker like I usually do...it took me almost as long to remember how to use the needle threader as it did to stitch the card.

This card will be off in the mail shortly to my bestie who has a birthday in a week's time. She will appreciate the sacrifice of my eye sight for her benefit he he he

Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Design paper (SU)
  • Sentiment Sampler stamp set (Paper Smooches)
  • Frayed Burlap and Blueprint Sketch distress inks (Tim Holtz)
  • Mini ink blender tool (Tim Holtz)
  • Paper piercer and mat (SU)
  • Butterfly punch (SU)
  • Orange thread (dollar store sewing kit)
  • Fishtail & Banner die set (your Next Stamp)
  • Bling (Michaels)
As always we would love for you to join our crew and play along.
