3 Challenges in 1





The featured stamper this week on SCS is Nikki Schmaltz - quite a talented stamper! I chose to CASE her card HERE. I was drawn to the pleated ribbon and the ghost shape that she used. I used Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge for my layout and Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge for the colors (White, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery & Night of Navy). After I cut the Nestie in the CB, I left the shape in the die and sponged Bashful Blue lightly around the edges. The ribbon treatment is a fun new method I learned about at Stamp Club yesterday morning. You lay a red sticky tape strip on the card, then pleat ribbon along the strip - so easy and so fun!

STAMPS: Verve Plain Jane Ps. 37:4
PAPER: Green Tea (SU - celery dotted DP), Blue Awning DP (K&Co), Night of Navy, White
INK: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue
ACCESSORIES: Labels Four Nesties, CB, Sponge, Metal adhesive stars, Ribbon (SU), Vintage button (PTI), Ghost shape
