Kimmie's Challenge #1!!


Okay, I've decided to be committed.........I mean, MAKE A COMMITMENT!! hahaha!! Since you all love challenges SO much (I do too....who am I kidding?), I've decided to post a weekly challenge!! Sometimes it will be a sketch challenge, sometimes a colour combo and others, a theme challenge!! I'll make them super easy so that EVERYONE can play along! I will post each challenge on Monday morning and when you have posted your card on your blog or in an online gallery, such as SCS, just post the link in the appropriate post! And each week I will send out a little RAK to a random winner.....it might be some ribbon, some embellishments, some designer paper or some stamps. You just never know!!! Sound like fun????

For this week's card I would like you to use this card that I made over the weekend as your sketch inspiration!! Sorry I don't have any fancy computer programs to make a plain sketch (I wouldn't be able to figure it out if I did anyway....hahaha), so you're just going to have to use the picture for inspiration!!! Hope that's okay!

This card was made for a Virtual Scrapbook Night challenge on SCS. The challenge was to make a card for someone you love using a stamp set that you love. Well, Emileigh happened to be hanging out with me in my stamp studio on Saturday and she thought this sounded like fun, so I let her pick out the stamp and the papers for me and I went from there!! She loves the cutsie Hedgehogs and she loves pink (how strange....not sure where she gets her taste....*snort*), so this is what I created!!

I stamped the image on shimmery white cardstock in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink and coloured her in (Emileigh said she is a 'HER') using my SU markers and taking the colours from the patterned papers which are from the SEI Twitterpated line. I doodled a little frame and matted it on Rose Red, then Pretty in Pink and then Chocolate Chip. The card base is a Rose Red square matted with PIP. Then I took TWO coordinating patterned papers, one on each half of the card. Now you can use two patterned papers OR create your own background papers by stamping on them....but do try to use a different design on each half of your card. I tied some of the awesome wide Chocolate grosgrain ribbon in the middle to cover up the seam. OH!! Wait a minute....I actually used THREE coordinating dp's as that strip at the bottom that says 'I love you, I love you...' is another piece. I just cut off a strip and matted it on Rose Red. Then I pop dotted the focal image and added a cute chipboard flower and covered it in more dp (it's actually the flip side of the hearts paper) and put one of the little hearts in the center. I really like the way it turned out....and so did Emileigh and that's what counts!!!

One more thing about posting.........if you upload your card to SCS, please use KC1 in your keywords and that way everyone can go over to the gallery and look up all our challenge cards!!

Now go to it......get stampin'!!!

Edited to add: Since I will be posting a new challenge each Monday, the deadline for the week before will be Sunday at noon EST!!
