10 Minute Craft Dash #10


I didn't think I'd ever participate in the 10 Minute Craft Dash!  I'm too particular, indecisive and well, anal!  Yup, I fuss and fuss to get every last detail perfect.  Trying to get a card completed in 10 minutes seemed like a daunting task!  After watching Dawn's video though, I picked up a few tricks that made the task seem almost doable!  The thing that stuck with me most was...stick to stamping & stay away from die cuts...got it!

This was the challenge:


Pink, Green, Gray...my first thought was baby.  So I shuffled through my stamps until I came across Heartfelt Mix.  Perfect!  I grabbed my ink pads, and some white cardstock and got busy.

I started at 8:03 and would have finished at 8:10, but that is the exact minute that I dropped my top layer right on my Certainly Celery ink pad...gasp!  I always close my inks after I'm done with each color, but to save time I left them all open.  It took about 3 more minutes to play with my bakers twine so I could strategically cover up my ink splotch.  All in all, it was a success.  A fun challenge that I might take on again.  Next time I'll remember to close my ink pads!

Stamps:  Heartfelt Mix (Wplus9 Design)
Ink:  Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Basic Gray (SU!)
Paper:  Whisper White
Accessories:  Corner Rounder (CS), Baker's Twine (SU!)

Your card is perfect! Kudos to you for taking the challenge, you did a fine job even though you dropped the top layer on your ink pad! YIKES! We never would have known if you didn't say anything though, you covered it up nicely! :) This stamp set is moving slowly up to the top of my loooonnnnngggg wish list. haha
