Craft Dash

I realized this morning as I was surrounded by more cold white stuff than anyone should be this time of year, that I needed some motivation.  The winter blues have really set in and that stinks since spring is SO close.  What does a girl do when she needs some inspiration?  She finds a challenge, that's what!  I figured it was about time to try the 10 Minute Craft Dash and participate in challenge #13.  It worked out perfectly since I had limited time and needed the challenge.  Here are the challenge colors:

I gathered my supplies, set my timer, and 9min and 53secs later, I had a card.  I realized early in the card making that cutting my flowers/leaves out was going to waste much of my time so I kept the rest pretty simple and my cuts weren't super neat but I made it!  Check it out:

9 min 53 secs

Stamps: SoHo Garden (American Crafts), Talk Bubble 2 (SSS)
Inks:  Versamark, French Roast (Amuse)
Paper: Kraft Brown Stripe (PTI), Various Pattern Papers (Studio Calico Kits), Glitter (American Crafts)
Misc:  3D Foam Shapes ( Scrapbook Adhesives)


  1. Oh I love it...the flowers on the patterned paper looks great!

  2. Fabulous card Chrissie. Love your stamping on patterned paper!
    I'll swap your weather for a day, we are heading for our 9th day straight with temps over 30 degrees Celsius (over 90 degrees Fahrenheit), it would be lovely if we had air conditioning LOL!
    So glad you joined in the fun at 10 Minute Craft Dash - hope you can join in again soon :)

  3. This card is so perfect, you look like a Craft Dash pro already! Great job showcasing the color palette!

    Thank you for joining in the 10 Minute Craft Dash, Chrissy. I hope you can play along in the challenge again soon!

  4. Hey! Your card is very beautiful. Even after making many 10 min cards, I still incorporate some fussy cut image! I just cant resist though it takes much of the time :)
    Thanks so much for joining us at 10 Min craft dash. We would love to see you join us in our future challenges as well! :)

  5. I love all the texture on the flowers, it gives a nice effect to the whole card, Chrissy!
