Something wicked this way comes …

B&W-Angela-spotlight-flower… a wickedly fun challenge that is!!!!
It is time for a new KS Crew Challenge and our KS Crew Hostess this month is, Angela!

Angela has cooked up a challenge where we not only get to push our creativity… but we get to count too!

Angela’s KS Crew Challenge #18 Easy as 1, 2, 3: Use only 1 Pop Dot, 2 Embellishments (of your choice), and 3 different stamped images.
You can use as many layers as you’d like, but please don’t use more than the items listed. Want to use ribbon? That counts as one embellishment, but…you can use as many different types of ribbon as you’d like. Make sense?

Blue-MoonI first stamped the moon (that’s 1 image). Then stamped the tree on top of the moon (that’s the 2nd image), followed by the leaves (that’s 3). I then did all my sponging off the ground and sky before I cut out the moon to pop it up with the 1 pop-up dot. My two embellishments… brads – #1 & ribbon #2. This was a fun challenge… sort of like counting Weight Water’s points… only with paper crafts! LOL! Thank you, Angela, for this super fun challenge. You really took my “COUNTING” to a whole ‘nuther level! :)

For samples to jump start your mojo, check out what the KS Crew has cooked up for you.

  1. Maria,
    I love the card. I can’t wait to play the challenge this month. I just got my stamp set from last months challenge, so I am making plans to get it all inky. I love the images you used and the way they all came together.


  2. Beautiful Marie! I especially love that deckled border and placement of the image in the lower right corner! Beautifully done, and now I’m wondering if I didn’t follow the rules correctly and might have to do a 2nd card! I used 3 stamp sets instead of 3 stamped images! Note to self – READ THE RULES!! LOL
