Make It Monday Challenge #219 - Take Your Pick

Hi there and welcome  to The Kraft Journal Challenge #219 - Take Your Pick.

I hope you are enjoying these Take Your Pick Challenges as much as we are.  When I was a Cub Scout Leader I always liked the Pack activity that gave each boy a bag of "stuff" and the assignment to build something out of it.  It was so interesting to see such a diverse group of items all made with the same "stuff".

So here is your "stuff", show us what you can make with it!

Tammy Hobbs
Tammy really enjoys the Take Your Pick challenges! This week she went with a cute basketball birthday card. She started by creating a 5 x 5 card base of Brown Kraft Cardstock.  Tammy then adhered patterned paper to the base which incorporated the color coral. Another of the pick three this round is to use Blue, so she incorporated it as the liner to the patterned paper strip as well as the star. The star base is created from Chipboard.  (You can find a picture on her blog that shows the Chipboard). She stamped a sentiment inside the star and added a cute "funny" face at the top.  She cut the basketball and hoop using an electronic cutting machine. A length of Orange Baker's Twine was wrapped around the card front and tied in a Bow. A final embellishing touch was adding a few enamel dots.  For additional product information and pictures, please visit Tammy's blog: Creating Somewhere Under The Sun

Karen always enjoys the "Pick Any Three" Challenges, and as usual, she picked more than just three items from this week's list.  Karen decided to include five items from the list including a Bow, Embossing, Lace, Chipboard and the color Blue. ,  She started her card with a Large Buff Ivory Note Card and added a piece of blue patterned paper.  Next, she pressure embossed a piece of coordinating Buff Ivory Cover Weight Cardstock.  She added a piece of burlap trim and a length of cream lace.  She also created a flower using Vintage Dictionary Pages that she die-cut and inked.  To the center of the flower, she attached a bow using Natural Hemp Cord and attached a Jenni Bowlin Icon Flatback.  The sentiment is a rub-on that was applied to a scrap of Buff Ivory Cover Weight Cardstock using her Bone Folder that she backed with a scrap from a Vintage Dictionary Page and secured to a piece of Precut Small Chipboard to help it stand out.  Finally, she tied a piece of Natural Hemp Cord around the edge of the sentiment strip.  Karen hopes that you will play along on this week's challenge, and invites you to stop by her blog, My Cup Runneth Over, to read more about her project.

Sometimes it is fun to send a card for no other reason that to give someone a smile or chuckle for the day.  So Marsha chose "funny" as one of her three items (although she used five in all).  The sentiment and rooster are digital images.  The chicken wire is also digital and she printed it on Light Kraft Text paper. Marsha associates burlap and farm with each other so she put a strip of Burlap Ribbon behind the image panel.  The Baker's Twine is red and black. For more details, visit her blog: Gramma's Room.
