A group of my friends participates in a Mystery Parts Challenge every month. This is where one member of the group sends some Stampin’ Up! ”parts” to the other members to use to make a project. It could be a card or it might be something else. The only rules are the parts have to be Stampin’ Up! current or retired products and you have to use everything you are sent on the card. You can add whatever you would like as long as it is Stampin’ Up!
During the month of March, it was my turn to send the parts to the others. Here is what I sent:
The parts included a piece of Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper, a Basic White card base, a piece of Pale Papaya card stock and three Polished Dots.
Here are the cards that each of the ladies made:
As you can see they are all beautiful! It is funny that Char and Laura were pretty close in designs with these parts. I think that is the first time that has happened.
Here is my card:
I made a Fun Fold card. Here is what it looks like open:
To make my card I first folded a 4.25″ x 11″ piece of Basic White card stock in half. Then I cut off a 1.75″ inch piece from the front of the card. Next, I cut a 3 5/8″ x 4 1/8″ and a 1 5/8″ x 4 1/8″ of Pale Papaya card stock. The cut a 3.5″ x 4″ and a 1.5″ x 4″ piece of Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper and layered them on top of the pieces of Pale Papaya card stock. I adhered the large piece to the front of the card and the smaller piece to the inside of the back piece.
Next, I stamped the leaves from the stamp set called Tropical Leaf in Fresh Freesia and the veins in Rich Razzleberry Ink and punched them out using the coordinating Tropical Leaf Punch. This stamp set and punch are part of the Online Exclusive Products that Stampin’ Up! is offering. These products are not in any catalog. There are a number of them that you can see HERE.
I stamped the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry ink and cut it out using the Celebration Tags die set (retired). Lastly, I colored the Polished Dots using the Rich Razzleberry Blends.
This month it is Laura’s turn to send us the parts. I can’t wait!
