A Craft Dash Hello

Hello there, friends! Today DeNami Design Rubber Stamps is sponsoring this week's 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge! Sweet Paulina invited the DeNami Design team to play along. Challenge #20 features the colors hot pink, tangerine, and gray. Such an interesting and unique color combo!


Is the idea of completing a {usable} card in under 10 minutes as frightening to you as it is to me??? This is the third time that I've played along with 10 Minute Craft Dash as a DeNami Design team member, and I must say that it hasn't gotten any easier. But it's still fun to try!! Here's what i made this time around:


My hot pink comes in the form of Cherry Pink Impress ink from DeNami. I used it to stamp flower petals from the Solid Flower Accents cling stamp set. My tangerine shows up as the DeNami Golden Tangerine cardstock that I used for my card base and the tangerine flower center, stamped with the circular grid from the Whimsical Garden cling stamp set and colored with a Copic marker. My gray elements include the punched frame I used to mat my focal image, the gray background polka dots on the card base (DeNami Polka Dot Background stamped in Smokey Gray Versafine ink), and the perfectly scripted "Hello" found in the Assorted Greetings petit four stamp set.

My time for this overly ambitious design? I just squeaked in under the wire at 9:58. Whew! I was really sweating it as I tried to quickly peel off the foam-tape backing while completing the final step of mounting the focal panel ;) .

Want to give this challenge a go? I think you ought to – there is an awesome prize at stake! Check it out:



If you don't already have any DeNami Design stamps, then this is a great way to start your collection with no risk ;-). And if you do? Then you have the chance to feed your addiction! The challenge runs from June 19, 2013, through June 29, 2013.


Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have an awesome Wednesday!
Emily

You aren't the only one sweating it. This challenge is so hard, but you nailed it! I love the background polka dot and your focal image. Fabulous card!

great card Emily and I am super impressed that you were able to complete it under 10 minutes. The fastest I ever did one was 45 min for an SCS challenge.

Super duper fantastic Emily! This challenge kicks me every time! I am so slow. This is the closest I have come yet. Too close for comfort and sure raised my pulse a notch or two!

Fantastic and great time!

Jessi Fogan said...

SO CLOSE!! I would have DROPPED the panel (sticky side down on pet hair) at that last second, lol!
I love what you created - the ornate frame is amazing! Funny how looking at the colours now I see your tangerine - when I wrote it down I put 'mustard'. Ack!

The sweating and heart palpitations are all part of the fun! But it turned out wonderful, so it was worth it! So great to have you with us at the Craft Dash, thank you!
