Hi All! And a Very Happy Tuesday to you! 8-) It's time for the Baker's Dozen Studio Challenge. This is a monthly opportunity for us to share what makes our stamping studios hum. Each month we will have a fun, crafty question so we can share our favorites, some tips and tricks, stamping advice and more.
The theme for August is:
PROJECT RUNWAY! Do you watch this show? It's perfect for creative types like us! On PR, the designers are given crazy challenges each week and asked to maintain their own personal style or point of view in their creation.
So, what's your stamping style or point of view? Would you consider your style to be CAS (Clean and Simple), Cutesy, Graphic, Vintage, Elegant, Layers & More Layers, or what? Describe it any way you like, it's your style after all! Today's challenge is to show us a couple of different projects using the same supplies. Show us one CAS card and one Fancy Fold card while still retaining your own personal style as much as possible.
What a Great question! 8-) And, believe it or not, lol, this was a REALLY tough one for me, lol Not so much the creating part, that was Super Fun and Easy...8-) But more so the, "What's your Style part"... I honestly don't think I have one particular style.. I like So many different styles myself, and would LOVE to be able to master them all, lol Not to mention, I like to change things up and try new things, as I have a tendency to get bored easily, lol.. So, to answer this question today, I even enlisted the help of a few close & trusted Crafty Blog Buddies, and the only thing that they All seamed to come up with that was the same, was my use of colorful, well coordinated dp's.. lol I do Adore Cute little Animal images, and I also Love Florals and Pretty and Elegant Feminine styles as well.. CAS has always been a big challenge for me.. lol Sounds so funny to say that, but it just doesn't come very natural to me.. And though I Adore Shabby Chic, I've never really been able to pull it off myself.. lol And it seams I have a tendency to create whatever I am inspired by at the moment, So maybe my style is more of a Variable or Eclectic style.. ( Maybe??)...8-)
We were asked to create 2 different cards to show off our style today, a Fancy Fold card and a CAS card. So here is my Fancy 'Joy' fold card! 8-) it was a lot of fun to put together from Miss Beates' Super Easy Tutorial, for those of you who have never made one of these, like me, up until now anyway 8-)... For Both of my creations today I chose to use TE's Darling Oops A Daisy set and coordinating Oops A Daisy Dies for their Great versatility and Pretty style. I paired these Sweet Cheery Daisies up with MME's The Sweetest Thing Lavender Collection.. For my Fancy version I stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, colored up my Daisy's with my trusty Copics and aded a touch of stardust stickles for a bit of Bling. I popped up my daisies onto SB Classic Ovals and Scallop Ovals die cuts with a bit of foam tape. And my sentiment oval was matted up with a Fun little TE Friendship Blooms Die Cut.. Here are a couple more shots of the inside of my card..
For my CAS Card I stamped My Sweet Daisies with Pastel Pink, Olive and Yellow Color Box inks, added bit of shading with my trusty Copics, popped them up onto layered SB Classic Circles Large & Small die cuts, and used the Fun TE Scallops & Circles Impression Plate for my main BG panel... And, believe it or not, My CAS card was actually more of a challenge for me to put together, I kept wanting to add more stuff to it, lol...8-)
