A few more Hope You Can Cling To Challenges

I'm trying to catch up on all the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges, but it's not really happening for me. I keep getting sidetracked and making other cards!

This first card is for Challenge #8 It's A Cover Up in which you had to have a hidden greeting. I used my zipper die from Papertrey Ink where you have to pull back the tab to reveal the rest of the sentiment (It says "...a birthday as special as you are."). I also used the colours from Color Throwdown's Challenge #265 for this one, keeping it fairly plain so the sentiment part was the focus.

And here's my card...


Stamps: Daydreamer, Movers & Shakers Sentiments both from Papertrey Ink

Papers: Crisp Cantaloupe, Not Quite Navy (Retired), Baked Brown Sugar, Whisper White, In Colors 2013-15 DSP STack all from Stampin' Up

Inks: Crisp Cantaloupe, Not Quite Navy (Retired), Pistachio Pudding all from Stampin' Up

Accessories: Baked Brown Sugar Stretch Ruffled Trim from Stampin' Up, Movers & Shakers Zippers Die from Papertrey Ink, Scalloped Rectangle Nestabilities, Filigree Corner Die from La-La Land Crafts, Glitter from stash

My next card is for HYCCT7, which was to use leaves on your card. I love these leaves in the Harvest Berries set form Papertrey Ink and thought they would make for a peaceful card.


Stamps: Harvest Berries from Papertrey Ink

Papers: Riding Hood Red (Retired), Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla all from Stampin' Up

Inks: Riding Hood Red (Retired), Handsome Hunter (Retired) both from Stampin' Up

Accessories: Riding Hood Red Pleated Satin Ribbon (Retired) from Stampin' Up, Mat Stack 1 Dies from Papertrey Ink

And my final HYCCT card is for Challenge 15A to use the sunburst technique with patterned paper of cardstock. I decided to use up some old scraps to make a quick Christmas card.

Stamps: Perfect Punches (Retired) from Stampin' Up

Papers: Real Red, River Rock (Retired), Very Vanilla, Dashing DSP (Retired) all from Stampin' Up

Inks: Real Red, River Rock (Retired) both from Stampin' Up

Accessories: Scalloped Circle Punch, 1 3/4" Circle Punch both from Stampin' Up

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're joining in these fabulous challenges for this very worthy card drive!
