Our Last Challenge of the Year!

We are looking back at this year’s sketches from Crazy 4 Challenges. I chose our sketch from challenge number 354.

I just got my latest order from Altenew today. It included both of the sets you see here: Vintage Teacup and Vintage Flowers. Can I just say how much I love them both? It took me ages to try out all the flowers as they each have up to 4! layers! I die cut them all then place a piece of typing paper under the negative piece. I then stamp each image on the typing paper so I have a record of which die goes in each place. It helps me line them up faster from then on. And if I want to make multiples, I have a way to place the die cuts in the same place each time.

While using the tea cup set, I learned a few things. Next time, I don’t think I will use the gold rim stamps with the polka dot ones. The gold rim goes better with the small flowers. I wanted to try the polka dots out so I’d have come contrast with all the flowers. But hey, can you ever have too many flowers on a card?? ha ha! You can find all 11 sketches over at the blog. I know it’s a busy time for most people but if you are still making cards, maybe thank you’s for after the holidays or hostess cards, try out one of our sketches!

Enjoy, Rebecca

Hi! I’m a disabled SAHM of three wonderful boys. Married since 1997 to Tim. I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.
