Are you stamping ? Are you knee deep in creating cards for the challenge posted on Splitcoast yet? You better drink something with lots of caffeine and head on over. SCS member companies are hosting challenge every hour. It started at 10:00 a.m. EST and it will end at 11 p.m. EST. As long as you upload your card by Sunday at midnight, you are eligible to win PRIZES!

Stamping and a chance of free stuff? I don’t think it can’t get any better. But wait…it does. Because…you can send the cards you have made to Operation Write Home  and donate them to this wonderful cause. Okay….so get your stamps out and get started! 🙂

This hour the SCS gang hosts a challenge. Our requirements are to make a card that

  • includes chocolate
  • follows the theme thankfulness
  • and uses the WSC100 sketch!


Here is my sample. And yes…that’s four days in a row that I posted a card with this sketch. I took my liberties and my circle turned into a BIG heart. But heck…if you read my blog you know I always just use sketches as starting points.


My card base is a 4 1/2″ x 9″ piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock, folded in half. The front was embossed with Cuttlebug’s Swiss Dot Embossing Folder.  The Chocolate Chip square measures 3 5/8″ . It was layered with a 1/4″ smaller piece of Aruba Core’dinations cardstock. The edges of that layer had been sanded and then zigzag stitched. Stampin’ Up!’s white Satin Ribbon was tied around the lower half of these two layers.

I adhered Fabric (bought as a fat quarter at JoAnn’s) over my chipboard heart, cut off the excess and inked the edges with Chocolate Chip Craft ink. Next I straight stitched around the edge (I was surprised my machine did that! Yeah for me and my Pfaff!).  The flowers are from Prima Quick Picks Flowers Hydrengea Strawberries pack. They were attached to the heart with a big rhinestone brad I got from sweet Charmaine a while back.

 The thank you from Stampin’ Up!’s Enjoy Every Moment was stamped on Pink Pirouette ink in Chocolate Chip. The cardstock was cut down to a strip and the left edge was punched with the photo corner punch. Next I rolled it up and down over a pen and adhered it with dimensionals.

Have fun participating in the challenge!

  4. I have been going through your blog all morning looking at your creations. You are extremely talented. The one thing that I truly appreciate about your blog the most is that you give dimensions for each layer. That is of HUGE help to me and I just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to do that.

  6. I gotta tell you I am so sad to see you resign from Stampin’ Up. I absolutely love all of your stuff. I have always been so amazed at all you do it truly is inspiring. I know your design will be just as amazing but I felt connected because you believed in stamping up. Of course I don’t design for any company so I don’t have the confict you do but I want to tell you – you are my favorite designer and I truly hope you will be able to incorporate their products still. Thanks for all the sharing – you are my stamping idol. Love Kathy
