Hello everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.  This week our challenge hostess Silke Ledlow has another fun challenge for us.

This week Silke has another inspiration challenge for us and is challenging us to use CHEVRON dies, design paper, or stamps along with these colors – GRAY, YELLOW, GREEN AND PINK to create or card/project.

I ended up creating two cards for this challenge this week as I cut two different shades of grey card to go with the other colors and as I liked them both decided to use both.

For both cards I started with Papertrey Ink’s Vertical Chevron Cover Plate. For my first card I decorated my card using this cute Bella  with Teddy image from Wild Rose Studio to create a baby card.


Here is the inside of my card … I added more chevrons to the bottom of the card and added the sentiment using stamps and dies from PTI.

Stamps: Bella with Teddy – Wild Rose Studio; Wonderful Words Baby – Papertrey Ink
Paper: White; Grey; Green; Yellow; Pink
Other: Black Ink; Papertrey Ink Vertical Chevron Cover Plate; Papertrey Ink Wonderful Words Baby Die; MFT Die-namics Fishtail Flags; Foam Tape; Copics


For my second card today I used the darker grey cardstock with the chevrons and used this cute golfing girl from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps.


Here is the inside of my card. I have again added chevrons to the lower portion of my card and added a sentiment.

Stamps: Good Sports – Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps; Live, Laugh, Golf – Paper Pretties
Paper: White; Grey; Green; Pink; Yellow
Other: Black Ink; Papertrey Ink Vertical Chevron Cover Plate; MFT Die-namics Mini Tab Foursome; MFT Die-namics Fishtail Flags 1 & 2; Foam Tape; Copics
