As You See It Guest Designer

Friday, March 6, 2015

I'm so excited to tell you that I'm the guest designer over at the As You See It challenge this week!  I love playing along with their challenges so I was very excited when Amanda asked me to join them.  This week the challenge is shades of purple and it's also a speed stamping challenge!



The idea behind a speed stamping challenge is to try to make your project in 10 minutes or less.  I've done a few of these before so I know that I need to carefully plot out my design and have all the supplies I'll need handy so I don't waste time trying to find things in my stamp room.  So with my stamps and dies at the ready, the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments as my layout and a little washi tape inspiration from City Crafter Challenge I set to work.  I thought for sure that I would go over 10 minutes but I'm pleased to say that I had this all put together in 8 minutes, 3 seconds!  Woo hoo!


I want to extend a bit thank you to Amanda and all the ladies at As You See It for liking my work and asking me to join them this week!  I'm grateful beyond words!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Gorgeous Grunge (SU); Celebrate Artsy (Stamplorations); Dandelion Dreams (Clearly Besotted
Paper:  White (Spectrum Noir); Concord Crush, Vellum (SU)
Ink:  Concord Crush, Wisteria Wonder (SU); Dusty Concord (Distress Inks)
Accessories:  Traditional Tags STAX, Pierced Traditional Tags STAX (My Favorite Things); Cheviot Butterfly die, Delaney Butterfly die (Poppystamps); Basic Rhinestone (SU); washi tape, white crochet thread, white seam binding ribbon

Congratulations on the Guest Design spot, Jen! I'm grateful beyond words, too, because this tag card is magnificent inspiration for me! I love how you added the pretty Washi tape to the stamped images behind your beautiful tag! This shows just why the Team is lucky to have you on board this week!

I'm so impressed you made this beauty in under 10 minutes. I'd need another 0 on the end of that to make anything halfway decent!
