PCP Crafty Secrets Challenge - 061409

Time for another Crafty Secrets Challenge over on Papercraft Planet. Today's challenge was based on the old saying "Mind your P's and Q's"! Well, we're leaving out the Q's but your challenge today is to see how many things you can use/do on your project/card that begin with the letter "P".

For my card I chose to use the Crafty Secrets Sew Special set. Here is a list of the "P" items I have used:

  • Pink cardstock & designer paper

  • Purple cardstock

  • Pearls

  • Pin Cushion (image)

  • Prima Flowers

  • Pattern (image)

  • Pin (decorative)

  • Paper Piecing and

  • Paper Piercing

The base card is SU Pink Pirouette and the designer paper is Crafty Secrets Classic. I stamped the "pattern" image over the designer paper using SU Eggplant Envy ink then embossed. The "boo-stee-a" was stamped onto a scrap of Crafty Secrets designer paper then paper pieced onto the stand. (see closeup) I couldn't decide what color "boo-stee-a" I wanted to I stamped & cut several ... then decided to use them all! The heart brad in the middle of my purple Prima flowers came from the $1 bin at Target. The is faux paper piercing on the dp and true paper piercing on the pink panel. My purple ribbon came from Hobby Lobby and the pearls are The Paper Studio. I stamped the pin cushion directly onto the pink pierced paper then used an American Crafts gold glitter pen to accent it. Did you notice the decorative Pin?? I think that's about all the "P's" I can come up with.

If you want to have some fun ... and maybe challenge yourself a bit ... why not join in on the fun! You only need ONE Crafty Secrets product to qualify to play (afterall, it is the Crafty Secrets Group Challenge, LOL). Remember when you upload your creation to include the TAG (keyword) of HVCS061409. Hope to see you there!!
