Week 86 Recipe

For our recipe this week,we'd like to revisit a challenge which has been very popular each time we have used it and it's simply to
Take 3 Challenges
If you look back at the list of our past challenges on the page at the top of our blog, you can choose any three to combine in your project... if you fancy the theme of a One Layer Week... you don't necessarily have to make a one layer card for this particular challenge.


Here is a simple card with no stamping. The sentiment was computer generated in Skinny jeans hollow and solid fonts. The ted is from a Sizzlets die, mounted on Spellbinders ovals and glittered with Glamour DUst. The final touch is a length of pretty ribbon.
Challenges Week 23 Something with Legs
Week 49 Predominantly Purple
Week 68 Card for a Child.
I was asked to make a card for someone who wanted to send greetings to friends who have gone to live in the States for a couple of years. This is what I came up with. Once more there is no stamping involved with this one.
The ziggy zaggy bit sort of represents the ocean between our two countries and the star was to save me from constructing a complete American flag... I would have hated to get the number or position of the stars and stripes wrong. Betsy Ross wouldn't have been pleased!
Here are the combined challenges for this one.
Week 39 Stars
Week 55 Punches or die cuts
Week 70 Red , White and Blue


For my card I have these three challenges in mind, but, there have been so many others it would fit too...
Week 1 Pink, Black & White
Week 43 Bling
Week 58 Script
Week 55 Punch or Die Cuts [flower]
I cut a square of 9cm x 9cm.
Stamped the Stampin Up dots from the Confetti set in Versamark and clear embosssed. Then sponged TH Distress Spun Sugar ink, then over stamped SU En Francais script stamp over one corner. I repleated stamping the dots onto my card base and again inked lightly on one corner and slightly on the left hand spine side.
I cut my squares formthe 9cm square I'd inked. Making 1 x 5cm and 2 x 4cm squares.
Stamped the SU HB senitment and placed the squares as you can see.
Added the die cit SU daisy flower and bling to finish.
The daisy looks a bit flat, but, there are 4 layers, shaped with my thumb and fore finger for extra dimension.

SO much scope this week, maybe too much?
Sure you will find your card fits lots more than 3!

Have fun and see you through the week on your own blogs
