Watercooler Challenge Sunday

It’s time for another Watercooler Challenge – and this one’s a good one! Ok – they’re all good. I’m having so much fun with these challenges! This one is an “Iris Fold” Challenge.

Stampin' Up!, Iris Fold

I had to look up the directions for this one, since I had never done an iris fold before, but I didn’t follow them exactly. I didn’t want to just use a square, because, well, it’s a challenge! So I decided to use the Baby’s First Framelits for this one.

Stampin' Up!, Baby's First

I used the Cherry on Top designer series paper stack for the folded dsp. I left the center of the carriage open so I could add the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes. After I layered the Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry cardstock, I ran it through the Big Shot with the Tiny Triangles embossing folder. The Baker’s Twine is Bermuda Bay as well (ok, I really have no idea. It might be Island Indigo from an old Paper Pumpkin or other kit. But it works. And I wanted to use Bermuda Bay, so that counts, right?), and I tied some Bermuda Bay sequins in the knot. And, of course, I had to add two more sequins to the wheels of the baby carriage.

Finally, I layered the whole thing to a Watermelon Wonder card.

So now – it’s your turn! Give the challenge a try. Upload your card here, and you could be chosen as the fave and get a cool badge to put on your blog or web site. You have two weeks (until July 10) to upload your card, so get crackin’. You can get more inspiration from the designers’ ideas here. Have fun with it!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
