Each month, I challenge the members of my Stampin' Clubs to create a project for a contest and submit it to me. I assign a theme for them each month.
For April, I challenged them to create a project that used Designer Series Paper in some way. They could create any kind of project they wanted. Products used didn't have to be current, but they did have to be Stampin' Up!
The winner this month was Alayne Kerbert with this lovely card (the picture doesn't do it justice at all!):
Uses Bloomin' Marvelous Set (retired), Gumball Green Classic Stampin' Pad, Raspberry Ripple Classic Stampin' Pad, Raspberry Ripple Card Stock, So Saffron Card Stock, Sunny Garden Designer Series Paper (retired), Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack, Fire Circle Rhinestone Brads (retired), Pearl Basic Jewels, Stampin' Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive, 2-Way Glue Pen, Stamping Sponges, Stampin' Trimmer, Paper Snips, Paper-Piercing Tool, Stampin' Pierce Mat, Blossom Petals Builder Punch, Spring Flowers Punch (retired), Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Multipurpose Platform, Standard Cutting Pads, and Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
Alayne notes that she used the Paper-Piercing Tool and Stampin' Pierce Mat to mark where to make the cuts for the lattice braid.
