June 2012 Creative Crew Challenge Entries


Hi Stampers! 

June is here and another month with the Splitcoaststamper’s Creative Crew! 

Again, we are hoping that you will join us this month by creating a project from one of the challenges (or all of the challenges) and upload it to the Splitcoast Gallery- it is a lot of fun!  When you upload, make sure that you use the keywords that are highlighted in bold so we can all see your projects and comment (SUO- Stampin’ Up! Only and SUM= SU! Mostly)-

The theme for June is:
"Something old, 
And something new,
Up on a cloud with the latest treat,
But old friends still can’t be beat!"

CCREW0612DF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM -DSP/Color Focus: Use three colors: Basic Gray, White, and one of the new 2012-2014 In-Colors. You can pick any new color you want, but your project can only have three colors, no more, no less.

CCREW0612CF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM - Catalog focus: Use one "new" item in combination with one "old" item.   Not “old” as in age or vintage, something that has been in the Stampin’ Up! catalog for a while. This can be a new embellishment with an old embellishment, a new set with an old background, an old die cut with a new set….

CCREW0612HF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM - Holiday focus: Manly Men – It’s time to take some inspiration from Brad Paisley and create something a man in your life. Tell us what line from the song inspired your project, now “sing it Brad” (I will insert a link to the words once the gallery is open to the public).


CCREW0612SF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM - Scrapbook focus: How about a “recipe” on how to build a fun page?   June is national strawberry shortcake month, so your recipe for will be based on the Classic Strawberry Shortcake.   Use the following components based on this recipe- remember  your page does not have to be a recipe page or about Strawberry Shortcake (your subject can be anything) but it needs the components based on the following recipe:
Your page needs to have:
*The colors of Real Red, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla
*There must be at least one group of three (three layers, three pictures, three punches, etc.)
*Something soft (the whipped cream) EX: a torn edge, a ribbon or lace, a fabric element, etc.    
The rest is up to you, see where this takes you!

Here are the projects that I created this month:

CCREW0612DF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM - DSP/Color Focus and CCREW0612CF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM - Catalog focus

Something “old” and “new- This card has the new Designer Series Paper, Patio Party and a new In-Color, Summer Starfruit (so it also qualifies for the DSP/Color Focus challenge) .  

I have to admit, I was not sure about this color at first but it has grown on me and I love it with Basic Gray and Whisper White!

Stamp the images with Basic Gray ink on Whisper White cardstock. Color the bee and the flowers with a SU! Summer Starfruit marker.  Distress the edges of the cardstock with the Distressing Tool and sponge the edges with Basic Gray ink. 

Ink the interior of the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder with Basic Gray Classic Ink and emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Big Shot™. 

Create the banner using the Big Shot™ with the Bitty Banners Framelits™ die.  Attach the 5/8” Basic Gray Satin Ribbon, Antique Brad and Pearls to finish off the card.

I love the new In-Colors so I decided to create two more cards using the DSP/Color Focus Challenge.  

Also, the new foam base ink pads are amazing and I wanted to see what type of detail I could achieve using the new ink on the same color cardstock  (especially with the Sunflower background stamp).   

This card also qualifies for the Clean and Simple CAS170 Challenge…

Stamp the image using Summer Starfruit Classic Ink onto Summer Starfruit cardstock.  Cut the paper into three strips and mount onto Whisper White cardstock and again onto Basic Gray.

I wanted to try a page using My Digital Studio and highlight my stamping “girls” Victoria and Angel.

The Real Red DSP, Very Vanilla butterflies, and Crumb Cake punched layer and background on the label satisfy the colors for the “recipe”. 
Three photos, punches, buttons satisfy the “threes” needed and the punched edge on the crumb cake layer adds the soft element (not to mention their soft fur :-))…


Since we do not have children, we tend to spoil our "babies"- they are such great companions, wonderful “friends” and I am very lucky indeed…

Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you will join us for one (or all) of the challenges this month!

All of these projects showcase the old and new so well Julie. Alas, here in Australia, I will have to wait until August/September before I can get my hands on any of the new. Your creations have MADE me start my wish list. Thank you for the inspiration.
