10 card challenge


This morning my friend challenged me to make 10 cards using a limited amount of supples.
I chose to do a birthday theme and she chose Christmas.

I used Die Cuts With a View papers (10 sheets 8x8) and MFT Blueprint 18.
I also used Happy Birthday die from Clearly Besotted, happy birthday sentiment from darkroom door and another happy birthday sentiment from CC designs by Amy R.
I did use silver embossing powder, Lawn Fawn dye ink and sequins/gems.

Here are the papers and die set I used

The papers are glittery so were fun to use.
I cut the elements of the dies out using all of the papers which meant I just then needed to assemble and add sentiments.

Here are my 10 cards :

This is what I had left

It does mean I can make some more cards out of what remains.
I really enjoyed this challenge.
It's surprising what ideas you can come up with.
I made these in 2 and half hours. Not a bad mornings work.

I hope this inspires you to have a go at this type of challenge.
My friend used a stamp set and matting dies rather than the blueprint dies and just sentiment stamps like me.

I will be doing this again at some point.
I think I will use another Blueprint set.
