Embellish Magazine Challenge

My friend Stephanie and I made blogs so we could participate in stamping challenges, and soon after, I lost almost all stamping mojo! I know it's bad when I participate in a challenge, don't take a picture, and the challenge ends before I get to upload my submission! Here is an attempt at getting it back again! Here's my first challenge, by Embellish Magazine. Our challenge was to use fabric, and the colors of Papertrey's pure poppy, enchanted evening, new leaf, and kraft. Thankfully I happened to have some fabric from my applique days. That's what I did here. I appliqued everything on to kraft cardstock, but wanted more green and blue, so put the background cardstock for the card. This card measures very big - 6 1/2 x 5 inches! Supplies: Mary Engelbreit house chipboard (used as a stencil); white, new leaf, and enchanted evening cardstock (PTI), Welcome from So Many Sayings (SU!), scalloped oval punch (SU!), medium oval punch (SU!), pure poppy buttons (PTI), fabric (Jo-Ann); rick-rack ribbon, unknown, floss no. 319 and floss no. 498


  1. Oh how CUTE! I cannot tell you how many times I have done that- created something and never uploaded it. Sometimes it just doesn't happen, you know? So glad you played along with us, though!

  2. Too cute!!! What a fun design and love your use of multiple fabrics. So glad you could join us in the Embellish challenge!

  3. So pretty! Thanks for playing along with us!
