Welcome to my "Challenge Cafe", this is where I will be posting various card sketches that I have created and other fun challenges for you to take part in. I hope that you will join in the fun, and if you do join in the fun...please leave me a comment with the link to your card that you have created. Can't wait to see what you all have created!
I decided that I would ditch the challenge for my blog candy, since I haven't really heard from anyone except from Julie...but that was by telephone, lol. So I threw the challenges out, and am just offering up blog candy. Leave a comment and I will draw a number on the 26th using the generator, will let you know who won.
Hey Julie, I will be getting you a little something for your idea for one of my challenges...thanks :)!
Happy Stamping :)!

I had these done about a week or two ago, but then yesterday I thought she could use some thank you notes to go with her gift (not something a new mother get's). So I made 26 thank you cards, I stamped the same images that were on the diaper (onesie) shirts onto the cards and then added the "thank you" sentiment. I colored each of the images on the cards too, originally I was going to just color in one thing on the card but then I got a little carried away and did more than just one thing. I put the cards into one of my altered boxes that I had left over from the card sets I made for Christmas gifts.
I also love this Giraffe stamp too, he is from Inkadinkado and I have used him for many baby cards :)!

Foam print by Ivan Reyes and this is supposed to be the inspiration and the starting point for your card. Pretty neat eh?? I thought so at least :), and as soon as I saw that print I thought I would probably use the "Pick-A-Petal" set. But then another card came into my mind, and I put the "Pick-A-Petal" set down. I also decided to go check out the other people's cards too that they created using this piece for inspiration, what amazing cards they all made. Great work guys :)!
Here is my take on this print, hope you like it :)!! Now, that I look at this card on my blog I am not too sure if I am a fan of it...oh well...
Here is what I used to make this card:
~Imaginisce "Let's Pretend-Wildflower soup" patterned paper from PhotoMemories
~Light Brown weave cardstock from Carousel
~Avacado green cardstock from Carousel
~chocolate chip cardstock from Michael's
~white flat cardstock from Carousel
~Archival ink (Jet black)
~Cardinal versa color ink pad
~187 Sage green Versa Color
~Su not sure of the set (lol, that is sad)
~Clear acrylic stamp set from Michael's which I will call "My Favorite Things" set
~Clear Butterfly Acrylic stamp set from Michael's
~Brown ribbon from Michael's
~scallop punch 1 7/8" from Paperstudio
~SU circle punch 1 3/8"
~white souffle pen from Carousel

As some of you know I have been wanting to know which inks one can use to stamp images onto fabrics, and I thank all of you who sent me comments or e-mails with links to different sites for this topic. The other day I was at Michael's and I picked up some fabric markers, but when I tried them on the fabric I didn't get a crisp image. Plus, the whole image that I stamped didn't all show up..only parts of the stamped image showed up...make sense?? Lucky for me, Spray and Wash (my all time favorite stain remover) removed any signs of this image on the fabric...didn't stain at all :)!
Second attempt, I stamped the image using "Archival ink pad" (Black) by Ranger (which I got from Michael's, it has a monk looking guy writing on parchment paper with a feather plume coming out the side of his shoulder...clear as mud eh?). This I was told would run, would bleed, wouldn't work...well, to my absolute delight it did work :)! I stamped the image onto the fabric, then ran down to my dryer, threw it into the drier for a half an hour to let the ink set...then I put it into the wash. The image did fade a little bit, but not something worth getting upset over...it just looks like it came this way from the factory (hard to explain)!!! I am thrilled to pieces and thought I should pass this info on to everyone here :)! I can't post the things I stamped yet, because my dear sister in law likes to read my blog...so you will have to wait (sorry) until Thursday or Friday after the shower we are having for her.
Happy stamping, and I will have something to post later for you to enjoy :)!
