INK15 You Pick Two *****WINNER ANNOUNCED *****
« on: October 16, 2015, 11:24:01 PM »
Inktoberfest 2015 Challenge ****************You pick two*************** Oct 17 - Oct 25

I've been in a stamping/cardmaking rut since the wedding marathon, so I watched a TrueScrap4 video by
Kelly Crowe called "Get Your Butt out of a Rut".  One of her tips was to scrap in a different size than usual, so I
made a card in a different size than my usual A2.  I think I'm out of my rut!  Hooray!  I hope this challenge
energizes your stamping too.

Requirements :

1.  Make an A10 sized card 3 7/8 by 9 1/4.  This fits a standard business sized envelope, which you probably have at home.

2.  Pick two items, one from each of the following lists,  to use on your card :

List One
* stamp in the negative space left by a die cut or punch
* use a brand new stamp (if you have one patiently waiting for ink, or shop, if you need permission!)
* use a border punch or decorative scissors
* do some paper piecing

List Two
* add some sparkle : glitter, glitter glue, stickles, wink of stella ...
* add some shine : glossy accents, foil, glossy gel pen ...
* add a button
* add fiber/ribbon

Extra Credit :
Your name goes in the hat twice if you make a Christmas card that meets the requirements above.

Add your card to the gallery using INK15-YPT in the title and as a key word.  Link it here in the forum.
Either in your gallery post, or here, tell us which item you picked from list one, which item from list two and a little bit about
your experience with this challenge.  Did you like it?  Was it a pain?  Spill it!  Haha!


I made this A10 sized card for my daughter's birthday. 

List one :  I used three brand new VivaLasVegasStamps (one is inside) and the unicyclist's dress is paper pieced.

List two : I added twine to the banner.

Here's my experience :  I had fun making this sized card, so I actually made two.  Fiddling with the banner was
not that much fun, so on the second card I took the easy way out and glued triangles straight to the card!
I'm bummed that I forgot to take a picture of the second card before mailing it!! :(  On that one, I stamped a new stamp in the negative space
from a die and used wink of stella for some sparkle.

I hope you'll have fun with this challenge.  Don't forget, the A10 size is required, you pick at least two more elements, 1 from each list.  Combining with other challenges is allowed.

Cool challenge.  I'm definitely in a card size rut.  I almost always make A2.  This should be fun.

How fun, I like the idea of using a different sized card base and doing the thing where you pick from the list if fun!

Thanks for hosting!

Well, "Mindy" is in the gallery and she looks a little washed out.  My computer decided not to recognize my camera card so I scanned tonights challenges.  I swear "Mindy" has flesh colored legs.  LOL!

Here is my ghostly colored Christmas girl.  Thank you for looking.
You know it's been a good day when I haven't released the flying monkeys.......

Glad you're liking the size requirement!

Sadie, you get extra credit for Christmas!  Mindy does look a little pale, haha, but I know she sparkles in person!  Glad you let her out!

My pick two card is currently in piece on my craft desk.  I really like how it is coming out and it was fun playing with a different card size.

That is a beautiful whispy stamp Jan, perfect for a long card.   I left comments in the gallery.  Thanks for taking my challenge!

Thanks for the fun challenge. I made a Christmas card and combined it with Heidi's challenge. I picked the negative die and ribbon. I also added shine with the silver pearls because it is a Christmas card.

Pretty card April!  You get two entries in the hat for making a Christmas card.

I really like the layout.  What are the two borders at the bottom that are blue and silver?  Rub ons?  Stickers?
