Challenges,challenges, challenges...

Holy smokes...my reader is FULL of great challenges. I want to do all of them, and am scrabbling thinking I won't get everything done before the deadline!!! I will continue to post throughout the day, but I wanted to share my first and largest challenge of the day. This is for Lesley's challenge at If The Shoe Fits...Scrap It. This blog just started on Saturday and all of their design team members are posting a new challenge everyday. You can view the challenges here If The Shoe Fits...Scrap It.
In this challenge we had to use the same stamp in at least three different projects. I have been wanting to make a small name plate for my scrap space. For the background I used Stream Adirondack Alcohol Ink, and for the frame, I used Pitch Black and Silver Metallic Mixative, also from Adirdondack, the letters are Tim Holtz Grungeboard Plain Alpha's which I used Alcohol Ink on, and Distress Stickles. The back ground stamps are Tim Holtz NEW Stampers Anonymous "Floral Tattoo" and the butterfly is from the TH's Stamper Anonymous "Nature's Discovery".



The cute little butterflies are a Martha Stewert punch, the flourish is TH's Grungeboard, and the key from TH's Ideaology. The silver corners are something I picked up at a random craft shop a while back. I can't give any credit there.

My next project for this challenge is a 3x3 mini accordian book. I stamped the same stamp from the "Floral Tattoo" set and embossed with with copper embossing powder. The photo does the beautiful color NO JUSTICE. There are four pages to this album and they are embellished with Basic Grey Mellow papers. There is a pocket on each page for storing small do-dads! The picture doesn't show the cute accordian binding on this, but the hinges are also TH Grungeboard, colored with Pitch Black and Copper Mixative from Adirondack. The closure is SU Basic Black 1/4 " ribbon. The edge lace ribbon is from JoAnn's.





For my last project I made a card. I used the same stamp from the "Floral Tattoo". The background is TH's Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint, Broken China, and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks. The stamp was embossed with Peeled Paint embossing powder. I used a TH border mask along the bottom and a SU Old Olive 5/8" ribbon. The sentiment is a TH Stampers Anonymous stamp from the "Fancy Flourish" set.
