Free As a Bird | Team Challenge card

17 October 2020

 Hi everyone, thank you for coming to see another update of my blog. Today I completed a card that my team set up a challenge around. The challenge was to use the Free As A Bird stamp set, Artistry Blooms & the card had to include a circle. This is the card I came up with for the challenge:

I coloured the gorgeous birds using the Stampin' Up! watercolour pencils, and fussy cut them out. I added the leaves from the Wreath Builder dies and put the birds in there to make it look like they were sitting in a tree. I used the Layering Circle dies for the sentiment which was the circle part of my card. Plus added a layer of the Artistry blooms dsp for an interesting background.

If you would like to participate in weekly challenges in our team, I'd love you to choose me as your Upline to join up and become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I provide my team with regular support meetings and we run these challenges to keep motivated with our creativity. There are no prizes, just the joy of creating together and learning different techniques. It is so interesting to see how everyone thinks so differently when it comes to creating, even if given the same guidelines to create a card. That is the joy of being creative!!
