24 Hour Card Scramble . . . and counting . . . and a giveaway
The Hero Arts Flickr Group are running a 24 hour Card Scramble. It started 6:30pm CST (Central Standard Time) on the 16th. That's 4:30am on the 17th my time - I couldn't get up that early. But I have joined in from the 3rd round. Each scramble runs for 90 minutes which gives us a 30 minute breather until the next one starts. Come over and join in the fun. I will post my cards as I make them. Round 3 : Rachelle's Challenge (Theme Get Well, Create it for a child, incorporate a button, or/and include at least 3 textures.) I love the new Hero Arts embossing folders - here's the Chevron. Stamped the flower, cut out and distressed. And was so happy to use a butterfly button - I keep forgetting to use them. I have also entered this in the Scrap Africa Chevron Challenge.
Round 4 : Marcy's Challenge (Theme On the Edge, using a punch or die on the edge of the card only). I wanted to make one for each of my 2 daughters studying in the UK. They will be home for Christmas!
Round 5 : Cecilia's Challenge (Theme All that glitters is not gold or silver. Make sure your card glitters.) I had spotted a card I wanted to case from pinterest - you can spot it on my board. I used Holographic embossing powder and distressed with Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Inks. Added 3 holographic gems. This is good for CAS-ual Fridays Blues Challenge.
Round 6 : My Challenge (Include a TAG on your card. It doesn’t matter if it is big or small, one or many.) I made 4 and enjoyed every minute.
Round 7 : Lindas Challenge (Repeated Stamping - use the same stamp for background AND focal point.) I was still stuck on the tag theme for my first one
Round 8 : Cat's Challenge (Shaped Card that has no white or off-white!) This was so out of my safety zone, that I nearly didn't play. But then I spotted the red card and went with it.
Round 9 : Lucille Challenge (Animal of a different colour). Another challenge out of my comfort zone - but I loved it in the end. That's what is so good about challenges.
Round 10 : Karen's Challenge (Red, gold and cream ONLY!) The gold cardstock is from Hero Arts (could be 10 years old!!) But absolutely brilliant stuff. Been hoarding for years. Amazing with the embossing folder. Card is cream, but since it's so late I had to use my flash.
I don't think I'll be able to stay up to make the 11th & 12th! To celebrate this creative celebration, I have a giveaway. Just follow me and leave a comment to enter the draw. You have until midnight on Sunday 18th November.
