Well today is the last day of another successful Stampin Up Sale-a-bration. You have until midnight Mountain Time to place an order to receive the free SAB items. I thought I would say goodbye to SAB with today’s card featuring mostly SAB items. For the swampy effect, I used the Gorgeous Grunge #130517 to stamp the background of this card using monochromatic color-pool party ink on pool party cardstock. I added a strip of sweet sorbet DSP #133521 (free SAB item) to create a “lily pad” I then created the alligator using the Petite Pennants Builder #122362 punch for the head, the teeth were cut using the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die #120893 and the eyelids were punched using the Owl Builder #118074 punch. For the body I used the Chalk Talk #129983 and stamped the See Ya Later #133533 (Free SAB Item) and then textured the head and body with the Decorative Dots #133520 (Free SAB item) to give it the alligator feel. I got really creative by wrapping the DSP around the back of the card and added his tail punched from Petite Pennants Builder punch. I think this made for a cute surprise and a fond farewell for the Stampin Up Sale-a-Bration. See ya later!

I followed my sister Cammie’s inchie card to use scraps on my table to create a cute – stamp free Halloween inchie card. The broom is created using the Owl punch and the score-pal to create the broom bristles. Witches hat is from none other than the pennant punch and her face it done with circle punches and the wordwindow for her nose. The wart is a brad and her half smile was free hand cut. Finished with the bat punch and a rhinestone.
The final color color coach challenge was selected by our pastel loving friend Sheri Foos from Gahanna Ohio. Sheri loves pastels and it is only fitting that she chose Very Vanilla, Perfect Plum and Rose Red for her creative combination. Sheri’s sweet vintage design features the First Edition DSP and the Vintage Vogue stamp set. Yvonne chose to go punch happy with this challenge and centered her design around the ever lovin’ hoot owl punch and the Punch Bunch stampset. Cammies vanilla challenge is overloaded with texture and her creative use of the pennant punch. Finally, my Very Vanilla card is stamped with Morning Cup labor intensive with coloring but is one tea-riffic card! Hope you have enjoyed all our color coach challlenges and you have been inspired to create. Leave a comment on which challenge you found the most inspiring.
