Stamp-Off Friday Challenge – Lots of Layers

Stamp-Off Friday Challenge – Lots of Layers

Stamp Off New Logo

It’s another “Stamp-Off!” challenge with my friends Jackie and Susan and me. This one was fun. (Ok, they’re all fun. Seriously, if you’re stumped for ideas, check out our Friday challenges!)

Lots of Layers, Stampin' Up!

I love layers, so this was a fun one. I also used the sketch from Craft Project Central’s Creating Pretty Cards challenge for September.

CPC63, Craft Project Central

This is a really cool sketch – but it’s trickier than it looks because that window is really a window!. Check out Monika’s tutorial here. I’m not sure I followed it exactly, but it was close.

Sweet Cupcake, Stampin' Up!, Craft Project Central

Layers and the window – sweet! And, how many layers? 11, I think. Eleven fun layers!

I used the Sweet Cupcake stamp set with the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits Dies and Flourish Thinlits dies. I had decided on Sweet Sugarplum and Perfect Plum for my cupcake, so those were the colors I took with me when Mike & I had our weekend retreat. But I also threw in the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper, because I haven’t used it enough. Neither of those colors is in the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper. The closest is Flirty Flamingo. Oops. But it worked out ok. The design that I used is a little plummier than flamingo, I think.

For the window, I used my Tags & Labels Framelits. I haven’t used them in a while, and they make great windows! This is the perfect size for the cupcake.

Of course, there are the things you don’t notice until you’ve photographed and blogged a card – like you need new cutting blades.  Another oops. Time to order more!

Give the challenges a try! For every 10 entries in the Creating Pretty Cards sketch challenge, one is randomly chosen to win a free month’s subscription! So you have nothing to lose – and everything to win! Link your card to the CPC site and you could win a free month!

Now – see check out the amazing things Susan & Jackie did with our layer challenge.

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

    I love how you added a window in the midst of your layers – and even let the layers show through! Great card, and combining the 2 sketches is brilliant 🙂

      Thanks, Deborah!! I think we were supposed to stamp inside the window – but I didn’t have the right stamps with me. So it was really a triple challenge – CPC, Layers, and limited supplies!
