Last month, I went to Salt Lake City, Utah for the Stampin' Up! Covention! I went down with 20 other ladies and while we were there we swapped pillow gifts. I received so many beautiful gifts and I would love to share them all with you, but as I said there was 20 of us, and we'd be here forever!
However, I will share this one with you, as this is where the Challenge came from. My Wonderful Up-line and friend: Heather Summers, gave everyone this for her Pillow Swap! It's the new stamp set: Simply Star, (because our team name is Simply Stars!) and it was beautifully decorated!
I guess this is where I have to admit that I wasn't fully listening. Which isn't a good thing, considering Heather is a teacher... I believe the challenge that Heather presented to us, was to create a card from her packaging. We could add a card base, but nothing else. So I stepped up and took on the challenge...(If there even was a challenge... is this all in my imagination?)
Here is what I came up with. I cut it down to fit on a standard card front and then used the remaining DSP and cut out the chevron pattern from the opposite side. I did sponge ink on the edges, so the white wasn't so bright. My intentions were to keep her full tag on the card, but unfortunately I got an ink smudge on it and I had to cut it down. But I think it still looks good. Her challenge was harder then I thought - once I did something, I couldn't undo it!
Well, hopefully this was the challenge...(Simply Star Ladies can you confirm this?) and if not, I hope you enjoyed it anyways!
Have a great day and Happy Creating!
