My SS challenges for the week and a turkey for ya..

Well I started off the week good, then fell behind.. But here are the cards I made for the rest of the weeks Challenges..

Tuesday was the color challenge.. every day this week all the cards had to feature a shade of pink... I didn't just get crazy with the pink even though I love the new In Color!



Just Jawing Stamp Set: Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss and Bella Rose DSP. Seasonal Sayings Rub Ons,coluzzle, 5/8 inch Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon and Watercolor paper.

I stamped the Stars in the background with pink pirouette then I stamped the bow onto the skull and covered it with glue and added the pink chunky Sprinkles Glitter.

Wednesday Challenge was a card sketch.. You had your choice of 2 and I choose this layout:





I love this DSP..Banbury! It is my absolute favorite from this catalog and it's so pretty...

Stamp Set: Moose you Paper: Close to Cocoa, Pink Pirouette,Whisper White & Banbury DSP. Tool kit, 3/4 inch circle punch, Close to Cocoa, Celery and Chocolate chip markers & Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

Thursday was the Ways to use it challenge and you could only use one word on your card.



This card is much prettier in person.. Not sure on the color combo I choose but you have to live a little right?

Stamp Set: Baroque Motifs Paper: Pink Pirouette, Basic Grey & Whisper White. Inks: Basic Grey, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red and Old Olive. Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, 2 way Glue pen and a sponge.

I sponged the grey around the outside of the white before I layered it and then I added some glitter to the flowers for a bit of sparkle.

Finally Friday's challenge was a Limited Supplies Challenge.. You had to use a leaf as your focal image.



I didn't use any stamps on this card anywhere! I choose Chocolate Chip as my card base then I added a strip of Pink Pirouette and Whisper White. I then took the white leaf images and applied them to a clear button and backed it with a 3/4 circle of Chocolate Chip and tied some pink embroidery floss through it and knotted it.

Then I applied the Chocolate Chip rub ons I wanted from the same package to the pink and added the sentiment onto the white. The Chocolate Twill was from one of the past mini catalogs and I just tied a knot in that as well.

If you haven't gotten any rub ons yet to play with you need to... They are awesome! I didn't think I would like them but I've been using them for everything.. And next month there will be a special on them so that would be the perfect time to give them a try.

And my final Card for you is a Turkey Card!! this was featured in October's Stampin' Success Magazine that us Demonstrators receive.. He was super easy to make.



Maybe I will do a video to show you how.. I used the Boho Blossoms, Scalloped Circle,Double Circle, 1/4 circle, 3/4 circle, 1 3/8 circle and 3/4 square Punches. More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White card stock and some 5/8 chocolate grosgrain ribbon and of course my seasonal sayings rub ons again! wink*
