Paper Craft Weekend Challenges-Chipboard and Bakers Twine

This weekend at the Paper Craft Weekend Challenge blog, Allison's challenge was to choose chipboard, and Caroline's was to use baker's twine. Since I did not have the time to participate in both challenges, I combined them. Here is my result:
Materials Used:
Chipboard flower, DCWV mat stacks (The Fall Glitter Matstack and Harvest Gathering Matstack), Stampin Up supplies-Very vanilla and chocolate chip cardstock, chocolate chip scalloped edge ribbon, Vintage Labels stamp set, Fabulous Phrases stamp set, chocolate chip ink spot, chocolate chip marker, crushed curry marker (used to color chipboard daisy), really rust button, Daisies # 2 Die, Vintage label punch, Mini word punch; and Martha Stewart Twine.

Card size is A2. Matstack cardstock was cut to create a two patterned card front. Stamped and punched "Smile" label. Threaded ribbon through label and tape to back of cardfront. Chipboard flower colored with Crushed Curry marker and center was sponged with Chocolate chip ink. Leave about 4 inch tail of twine at front of chipboard flower and wrap twine through petal openings going around petal until each opening has twine wraped through twice. You should end with two pieces of twine facing each other. Cut twine so there is now two 4" tails. Thread each piece of twine through button and tie into a bow. Run Chocolate Chip cardstock through die cut machine with Daisies #2 Die. Glue chipboard flower on top of Daisy, making sure you can see the daisy under the chipboard flower. Set aside. Using Chocolate chip marker make stitches around bottom half of card front. Adhere flower to cardfront as show. Adhere completed card front to Very Vanilla card.

Paper Craft Weekend Challenges-Pt 2

Second challenge of the weekend is from Caroline. She's the glitter girl! Her challenges always involve sparkly things. And if not for that "requirement" my tag probably wouldn't have any sparkle to it. I am not a tag maker, but due to the tag theme we had our monthly crop this month, I decided I would do tags for this week's challenges. I have a friend who's birthday gift will have this tag as an adornment. Everything but the Stickles, the twine,  and the tag base is from Stampin Up.
Particulars: Paper is Nursery Nest (I will never use this paper for anything baby related. It's adorable for lots of things), Penant Punch, Pennant Parade stamp set, Pear Pizzazz cardstock, Marina Mist Satin Ribbon, all mounted on an Avery tag purchased from Office Max.

Paper Craft Weekend Challenges

My good friends Caroline and Allison kicked off their new blog Paper Craft Weekend Challenge this weekend and I decided I needed to participate in their awesome challenges. Here's my first entry:

Allison gave us two sketches for her challenge. The first was a layout (Gosh I wish I had the time to get back into scrapbooking) the second was a card. Since I had to make Christmas tags for the church crop I co-hosted with my good friend Maggie on Saturday, I decided to use the card sketch challenge to make a tag.
All the materials I used for this tag came from a $5 Christmas kit I bought from Big Lots. The "for you" stamps were from the Fabulous Phrases Stamp set from Stampin Up. I made the flower using the Stampin Up 5 Petal Flower punch (punched 3 time). The leaves were also made from the 5 petal punch.  I will have a tutorial on this flower making technique as a Technique Tuesday later in September.
