Tried a SCS Challenge!!

I tried out a SCS challenge last night, it was a challenge to break out any little mini stamps that you had and incorporate them into a card. I chose some stamps I had gotten at Michael's (the $1.50 ones), and I used a set that had 3 little flowers together believe it came from the set with "Girlfriends" in it. I stamped 5 of these set of 3 flowers in a row, then I stamped 3 more flower sets and cut them out. Next, I took those set of 3 that I had cut out and put a glue dot on them so it would pop off the page. I then added some blue sky around the flowers using my "Pebbles" Chalk set, and I also used the green chalk from the same set and made grass. I then glues the flowers onto a pink (Blush linen cardstock that I got from "Carousel Rubberstamps"), then attached the pink cardstock onto a piece of scrap blue cardstock that I had measured out. I guess you would call it the "layered" look :P! I had some "Embossed Box of Cards" by DCWV, that I had picked up at Michaels and hadn't decided what to do with these cards and so I decided that this was the time to use them. I used the card from the section titled "Flower Patch", and colored the flowers, by brushing my dew drop Versamagic Malted Mauve ink pad over the card. What an effect it gave the card, really neat...will have to keep doing this technique (old technique I know, but new to me). I then attached the layerd blue, pink and flower stamped paper onto the flower embossed card, then I attached a tag I had made using my SU tag punches and on the tag I stamped "Get Well Soon". I then had to decide what I wanted to attach the tag with, so I finally decided on a pink large brad and stamped some flower images from the SU set called "Polka Dots and Petals". And voila!
I don't have the picture for this card yet, will put it up as soon as I figure out how to make my scanner behave :)! Can't wait to show you the picture of this card!!

Have a great long weekend, for those of you who live in Canada :D!

Can't wait to see it, sounds very nice! I have to get out my little minis and play with them too and those gorgeous pre-embossed cards...there's just not enough hours in the day! We missed you last night at Jamie's SU party. Hope the kiddies are feeling better.
