SCC2 Week 1, Day 4 Homework

It's Week 1, Day 4 of the current Online Card Class: Summer Card Camp 2, also known as SCC2, and time for more homework. Today's challenge was to make a card in under 10 minutes using the week's colors and one of the sketches. I DID IT! I squeaked through with 45 seconds left on my timer. Whoot.

Oh, wanna see the card? Here you go:

Why, why why do I keep making white cards when I've proven
again and again I cannot photograph them?!??!?!

I did follow the directions and planned things out ahead of time, but I didn't die-cut anything as part of my effort. Instead I used things from the UFO pile, including the leaf column die-cuts from the other day. I am amazed at the detail that went into the sample cards in class, including embossing and die-cutting, considering it took me 9 min and 15 sec to make this without any of those steps. Yikes!

Here's the detail of the sentiment since I still cannot take a decent photo:

I broke out my Delicata gold ink I was enabled to need a while ago. It's delicious.

Oh, and my blue element? Would you believe I colored the stems blue, then hated intensely disliked them and colored over them with yellow to get the green? Well I did. I sure hope that counts. If not, I'm calling the card stock "teal". Pffth.

Wow, I'm 4 for 4 so far. Let's see if I can keep it up!

Thanks for stopping by!

Products used: miscellaneous teal card stock, sentiment from Stampers Anonymous (probably from my LSS), and the following:


  1. I liked the contrast between the cool background and the brightly colored leaves.

  2. It doesn't look like a 10-minute-or-less card, you done good. Keep up the good work, I am enjoying taking this class by proxy :-)

  3. 10 minute challenges make me twitchy, so I admire people who can meet the challenge. Well done!

  4. I'm impressed!!! Love the Delacata too.

  5. Great card, and I love the sentiment--it made me laugh out loud!

  6. Awesome sentiment and beautiful - love these colors!


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
