challenge on SCS... Masked Frame.
I just love these new stamps from Stampin' Up!...Extreme Guitar and Extreme Elements! Very cool, and such a change from the flowery & cutesy stuff! For this card I used Soft Suede, Always Artichoke, Real Red and Very Vanilla cs; Mellow Moss, Always Artichoke, Real Red and Basic Black classic ink; Real Red marker; Notebook & Corner Rounder punches; sponged the edges; and used a Top Note die cut to mask & create the frame. Original challenge and directions to make the masked frame can be found on Splitcoaststampers.com here:

This card is for today's Ways To Use It challenge on SCS...the challenge today was to use pleats on a card. I decided to try making a pleated 3-d flower...it took a few tries to get it right! The flower is a 1 1/4" x 12" strip of dp, then punched with the scallop edge punch, scored between each "hump" of the scallops, accordion folded, ends attached w/sticky strip, then "squashed" into flower shape...easy as that! The leaves are small oval punched, then run through the crimper. Stamps used are Pocket Silhouettes, and colors are Old Olive, Rose Red, Regal Rose. TFL!
