Chic Challenges CC-01

Welcome to my Chic Challenges card post. I am a Chic Challenges Designer and this is our very first sketch! I had fun working on this and created two cards! I hope you like them.

I went with a clean and simple design for my first card.  I used the in-color Summer Starfruit for my base card layer and Rich Razzleberry cardstock for the forefront layer. I also pulled out some Print Poetry DSP from the Spring Catalog and used a stamp from the Happy You hostess set.

For my second card, I turned the background part of the sketch on its side. I played around with flags and distressing. I used my brand new freebie set, Make a Wish, from the spring catalog. I received this one as a gift at the St. Louis Regional event and I couldn't wait to use it! I also used the droplets stamp from My Paper Pumpkin Welcome kit.  I mixed and matched Tempting Turquoise, Gumball Green and Midnight Muse for my color pallet.  You can't see it here too well, but I also made a shimmer mist using alcohol, white shimmer paint, and the Tempting Turquoise refill.  I distressed the edges in Midnight Muse. Totally loving this new stamp set. Can't wait to use it again!

Hope you enjoy the sketch and can't wait to see everyone's unique ideas!

Disclaimer:  I am a new Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  I am working on replacing all my craft supplies with only Stampin' Up! product, but I will occasionally use some of my non-SU stash. Bare with me as I work to replenish my stash with only SU product. I will be highlighting new products as they come in and I will always point out great alternatives to my non-SU product that are Stampin' Up!. Thanks for understanding.
