One of the fun things that I did at our October Stamping to Share Demo meeting was to issue a challenge to case or be inspired by something in your secret envelope. You can see what I did which my challenge HERE. Everyone got an envelope and inside was a cut out from last year’s Idea Book and Catalog. This was an optional challenge, but a few of the demonstrators took me up on it and we had our Big Reveal this past week at our November meeting. Above is the inspiration sheet and the resulting card created by Mary Dagostino. I love the way she used the Lace Border and I really like the torn paper effect.

 Karen Larson was inspired to create a bag and learned how to make spiraled flowers as a result of the challenge. The designer paper that she used is from the paper pack called Domestic Goddess.

Debby Filiowich loves the set called Tote-ally Tess so it was kind of neat that when she opened up her envelope what did she find, but some inspiration featuring the Tote-ally Tess set! She made some Girls Night out invitations. I love the sparkles and lace!
Laura Erickson is our Team Queen when it comes to making 3-D projects so she was tickled pink to open up her secret envelope and find mini milk cartons! She was inspired to create a mini milk carton with a merry Santa theme. Sooo cute! 
Mary Smallidge was inspired to create this cute tag based on her inspiration sheet. She used the Peek-a-Boo Die so that the tag has a nice little spot for its “to and from.” 
Cindy LeMire created this beauty. I love the way she textured the cupcake and spritzed her papers with Shimmer Paint sparkles.
 Mary Bellis came to our October meeting as a guest and wanted to play in the challenge so she came back as a guest in November with her sweet card featuring a pull out tag. She’s been a very busy grandma lately knitting baby things for two new grand babies so it’s not surprising that she was excited to use this set in the Creative Challenge!
