SC 67/12

Our challenge this week has been set by Kris.  All we have to do is create some kind of Shaker Card.  No sketch, so let your imagination run wild!  This should be a simple one for everyone to play along. 

Just to get your started here is our design team inspiration.




We hope everyone gets a chance to try making these fun cards.  Stampin' Up! now sells Shaker Frames in heaps of different sizes, so it should be easy to come up with lots of great designs.  We are looking forward to seeing your fabulous work.  Don't forget the challenge ends on Friday evening and that we are a Stampin' Up! challenge site.

Happy Stampin'

From the response to this week's challenge it is clear that Perfect Plum is not a colour we are comfortable using.  We would however like to congratulate Lisa who we have selected as our Ray of Sunshine this week for this gorgeous card.  Don't forget to visit Lisa and let her know how much you love her work, everyone loves to receive a compliment.
Here is our Ray of Sunshine badge for Lisa to add to her blog.

Don't forget to check back tomorrow for our new challenge.  We know that everyone is starting to hit that busy time of year -there are end of year concerts, graduations and general preparation for Christmas, as well as all those wonderful Christmas Parties that are starting to kick in -  so we really appreciate those of you who have the time to participate each week.

SC 065/12...

Thank you so much to all our loyal followers & to the lovely ladies who join us each week.  We look forward to seeing all your creations each week. 

This week's challenge has been given to us by Gwen.  It is a really great layout with the 2nd part being  "Sympathy".  I know we don't like creating these sorts of cards, but it is always good to have one or two stashed in your box for emergencies.

Although Gwen is still away attending to her husband & packing house, she has supplied us with a creation of the challenge.

Now it is your turn.  Create your card, link to your blog or on-line forum or group.  Return to the challenge blog & link with Mr Linky.

Challenge closes Friday 2 November approx 7.00pm Australian Eastern Time.

Have a great week

Ray of Sunshine 64/12

Well we didn't get the same response to our challenge this week as we did last week, so we can only give one Ray of Sunshine and believe me that is very hard to do.  All the entries were fantastic and I hope you enjoyed trying this fun technique.  Anyway, please join us in congratulating our Ray of Sunshine, Mel Sharp, for this fabulous card.  I must admit I wouldn't have tried two-step stamping with this technique but it looks fabulous and Mel's result is so perfect.


Here is our badge for Mel to add to her blog.

This week Kris has set the challenge and asked us to create a Triple Time Stamping card.  The sketch will give you an idea of what that means.


And here is your inspiration from the Design Team this week.
