City Crafter Challenge # 242


It's Tuesday and that means time for a new challenge at CCCB! It will be our last challenge this year before our Christmas break; I hope you will join us!
This week Ros is our host and she is giving us a fab Christmas Color Challenge:
(create a card, tag or project using ONLY the 3 colors, MUST use all the 3 colors in the palette, but can also use neutral such as white, cream or kraft)

(Color inspiration by Ros)

 A variety of techniques, cutting, dry embossing, heat embossing and stamping:

A little winter scene:

This week our Guest designer is Darnell; you can see more of her beautiful projects on her blog

The winner of this week will receive 4 digis of the winners' choice from Sweet Pea Stamps
A bit of Sweet Pea stamps:

Sweet Pea Stamps (SPS) is a small home-based business in Michigan. SPS does not work from a brick and mortar shop. You will find SPS only on line at Sweet Pea Stamps. We pride ourselves in quality and value. Lynette McAnsh, Owner, is a perfectionist. If the product is not top quality, she will not offer it.

Lynette stated her small business selling D.O.T.S. in the 90s. In 1999 she started “Designs, Ink’d” and sold that business in 2004 due to health and family issues. Missing the love of running a small business, and with her children older, she started Sweet Pea Stamps in April 2009. Now, 5 years later, we are representing over 30 artists with digital images and rubber stamps. She does work alone, sometimes with the help of family; her turn-around time may be longer than the big companies. You will always be met with friendly and professional demeanor and her merchandise will always be the highest quality.

Other online places to visit SPS are the Facebook page Sweet Pea Stamps, and our Facebook group, Sweet Pea Stamps Friends and Fans. SPS has a monthly blog challenge at One Sweet Challenge and daily inspiration from SPS’s designers at Sweet Pea Rubber Stamps blog. We hope you join use.

I hope you will be able to play along before it's Christmas!
Thanks for stopping by!

Leuke challenge met een mooie kleurencombinatie! En weer heel stijlvol uitgewerkt door jou. De huisjes in kleur zijn super. Krijg bijna spijt dat ik ze de vorige maand niet genomen heb bij het pakket van Inge ;) Er zijn ook gewoon te veel leuke (SU-)spullen te koop....

Dat ziet er gezellig uit Stel! Het zijn echt van die huisjes waar je - zoals wij in Brabant zeggen - heerlijk naar binnen wil blieken (oftewel kijken voor de niet-Brabo's onder ons ;-) Heel gaaf gedaan dit! Sorry dat ik nu pas kan reageren, chronisch tijdgebrek lately... Geniet van je avond! Liefs, Ira xox
