Stampin' Up! Team Challenges

As I mentioned in a earlier post I am now a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  I now have a wonderful Upline Christine, and great group of side-lines too!  If you have a moment pop over to see Margaret   & Michelle

So far most of my contact with these lovely ladies is via our Team Yahoo Group.  To keep the creative juices flowing they set Team Card Challenges, of course you are welcome to use the challenges to inspire you too.  

I've almost finised my Massive spring clean, (ok so I'm late, but better late than never!) so I've allowed myself to indulge in some stamping time.  Would you like to see what I came up with?

Challenge #1 - CASE of a card in the Stampin Up Ideas Book & Catalogue - pg 41


Challenge #2 - CASE of card on pg 18 of the Stampin Up Summer Mini Cataloge


Challenge # 3 -make a card using just Creamy Caramel, Ballet Blue, Black & one other colour.

Challenge #4 - was to use a stamp set I haven't used in a while - I chose to use Simple Somethings Set with Short & Sweet, but then I cheated and also used the SAB set Polka Dot Punches & Boho Blossoms Punch on the 2nd card.

Challenge # 6 - set by my Daughter Steph - "please make me a card with Yellow, Purple & Pink" I used, Pretty in Pink, Almost Amethyst, Lavender Lace & Barely Banana.

Challenge # 7- Ooops I almost forgot this one and it's my fav project, a box to fill with chocolates

I created this using 2 stamp sets from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue - "Polka Dot Punches" and" Yummy". 

I've also decided I LOVE the combo of Soft Sky & Groovy Guave with a touch of Very Vanilla, and a sprinkling of Purely Pomegranite - Yum!  So Pretty with the scallops!  If I were to make the box again I add extra flaps at the ends of the box so you wouldn't see the gap, but I'm just learning and having fun while I'm at it!

Now I'm off to do a little more stamping.

PS The challenge numbers do not correlate to those set by my Team, but for the order in which they were created.
