Dare to Get Dirty Challenge

If you haven’t checked it out yet, this week are the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges over at Splitcoaststampers, and today I’m hosting one of the challenges. You can read all about it over at SCS. This event is hosted annually by the Dirty Dozen, current and alumni, as a little thank you and fun event for the Fan Club Members. Not a member yet? Check it all out here.

You can read the details oftoday’schallenge that I am hosting here. I hope you can pop on over to SCS and play along.

Now here’s my sample for the challenge I’m hosting today:


Measurements: 5.25 x 7.75″ (side fold)

Stamps: None — I can choose an inside sentiment when I use the card

Paper: Thrift Shop by October Afternoon (Thrift Shop KIT with ribbon here)


Flower: Peony Nestability by Spellbinders (with button in center)

Ribbon:2″ Wide Stripes in Black/Ivory and 1/4″ Silk in Ivory


The inside was simply covered making it easy to add a sentiment on the Vanilla paper.

Corner Dies: Vintage Dies by Cuttlebug (Provocraft)


All items used on this card are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. A few of the DT girls wanted to play along as well — you can check out their creations on their blogs:

Sherry Cheever

Deb Saaranen

Holly McMillen

Check out all the challenge entries over at SCS today — fun stuff happening over there.

Thanks much for stopping in today — I’ll have another challenge sample for you tomorrow! Wishing you all a wonderful day!!!

    There are no images when I view your website today. Wonder if it is on my side since others can see. I will check back later. Thought I would let you know in case there is something on your side too. Thanks.
