Using Challenges For Card Design


To be honest, I would have never come up with this card if it had not been for me finding these two challenges this week when I needed some inspiration:

Using these two challenges my card quickly came together because I had CTMH’s Live Beautifully rose out (it’s available only during May) and I thought the CTMH Memo Fundamentals paper (which is retiring and available only while supplies last) would be a perfect place to start.  The flowers and squiggly Love come from one of the D-stamp sets CTMH includes in the Cricut packages.  You get the Circut cartridge (or, save $20 like I did and get the digital download!), 3 stamp sets and a paper pack.  The best part?  You can get this for half price as a qualifying hostess.  woot woot!!

What rubber stamping supplies do I need to make this card?

Yesterday I talked about “zip strips” on CTMH’s paper packs.  That little grey (Whisper) pattern is one of those!  I also used a waterbrush and my CTMH watercolor paints to add a little extra dimension to my rose.  It’s gorgeous in real life!  I love the vintage feel to this CAS card.
