YIKES!! Today's challenge for the Stamp Camp 2 card class was to make a card in 10 minutes or less! Gulp! I have never attempted one of these challenges before. I always have precut and scored card bases, so I reached for a white one and then a scrap of white cs that I cut to 5 1/4 x 4. I also always have a drawer of pieces that have already been die cut so I pulled out a sprig with leaves on it. Next, I picked up the washi tape that was sitting on my desk that just happened to match the colors for this weeks challenge! (Score!) I sprayed the die cut with Heidi Swapp color shine. Now at this point I said to myself, you know fine that leaves are not the color of Georgia peaches, but green is not an option, so peach leaves they are, lol! I adhered my die cut to the white panel and thought I should pop this panel up and reached for my tape runner, put adhesive all over the panel and stuck it to the card base. DANG IT!!!! I just said I wanted to pop the panel up! Argh! I reached for my sentiment from a set that was still sitting on my desk from a card the other day, but in my haste my impression was not perfect, so I re-inked my stamp and stamped over the image........ DANG IT!!! It was blurry!!! All the time I am watching the stop watch ticking away. Time to start over. Luckily I know what I am going to do at this point and everything was still out. The only thing is at this point I had to use a different die cut, which I feel is too big for my card, but it is what it is. Not thrilled with my card, but not a bad effort for my first 10 minute challenge. I came in under the limit, but it is stressful watching the seconds pass you by! Anyway, I can't wait to see what everyone else did for the challenge. Thanks for checking out my card!
I took a screen shot of my time but I can't figure out how to upload it!!! My time was 7.12. I hope it is ok to use stuff that has already been die cut.
