Speed Stamping with Festive Farmhouse for As You See It Challenges

Oh, I love to hate them, but As You See It Challenges keeps tormenting me with them - those speed stamping challenges, and another has rolled around this week! This one is entitled "Vitesse Red" and it's all about stamping quickly in shades of red with a few neutrals thrown in. You really can't produce masterpieces in under 10 minutes, but you can get a really nice looking card, if you take some time to think things through ahead of time and gather your materials first. Luckily, at this time of year, there is no shortage of reds around. Here's the banner for As You See It Challenge #188:

And here's what I accomplished in 8 minutes and 3 seconds:

  • The beautiful plaid paper is from the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalogue. Something about plaid is so Christmassy! The shade of red is Cherry Cobbler on a Cherry Cobbler card base.
  • The sentiment, stamped in the same shade of red, is from the Peaceful Noel stamp set and punched out with the Pretty Label Punch. It is backed with a Cherry Cobbler panel punched with the Everyday Label Punch.
  • Using the Sprig Punch, I've made 4 sprigs of the Merry Merlot Glimmer Paper from the Joyous Noel 6 x 6 Glimmer Paper collection and attached those to the underside of the sentiment panels, and then adding some Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the panels over all those.\
  • I added some adhesive to the front of the card, about 3 stripes of it where you see the sentiment panels and coiled some of the White Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine and secured it to the card front on that adhesive. Then I anchored it in place with the sentiment panels after removing the films on the dimensionals and pressing them into place.

So, it's after NOV. 1! That means you can now order the Snowflake Showcase items. But remember they are a limited time offer. They will NOT be available after Nov. 30 and only while supplies last! If you want anything you'd best order now. Makes a great gift for a crafter!


Contact me ASAP with your orders or let a friend or family member know this would be an ideal Christmas Gift for you. But tell them about the limited time they have to order.
