SCS CAS Winter Design Team Entries

This past week I decided to enter the search for the winter design team for the Clean and Simple Challenge at Splitcoaststampers. There were three rounds which narrowed the field of stampers to a final 8 from which 3 design team members will be selected.

Round one required a design with designer paper and ribbon. Here is the card I created:

Stamps: Good Cheer by Technique Tuesday
Papers: PaperTrey Ink White, Martha Stewart Christmas Pad
Ink: Stampin' Up Real Red
Embellishment: Silver Cord and Satin Ribbon
Tool: Cuttlebug Tag Die Cut

Round two required at least one gift in the design. My design has three:

Stamps: Holy Triptych by Stampin' Up
Seek Him by Stampendous!
Papers: Naturals Ivory by Stampin' Up
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa and Copic Markers
Embellishment: Silver Cord and Satin Ribbon

I made it through to the final round where we had a photo inspiration of holiday treats in traditional colors. Here is my entry:

Stamps: Multi Step Build a Garland by Kitchen Sink Stamps
Good Cheer by Technique Tuesday
Papers: PaperTrey Ink White, Stampin' Up Real Red
Ink: Stampin' Up Real Red
Embellishment: Seam Binding Ribbon
Tool: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Martha Stewart Loop Punch

Winners will be announced Thursday night!

November TUIC Challenge

My final card today was created for Julie's Clean Up Challenge for Tangled Up in Creativity. She asked us to use left over bits and pieces from our desk to create a card for her November challenge.

As you can see, I have used pieces left over from my work on my third card for the SCS CAS design team challenge. You can clearly see a smudgy peppermint on the left and the addition of a third color which I decided to abandon. I really don't like spearmint, anyway!  I added a few more layers, and it is going out to someone (possibly visually impaired) for Christmas.


  1. Ah, Lynn, I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed! This will just be great. I'm pulling for you to get a spot of that DT!
    ALL are wonderful. I'm thinking I'm in total love with that last card though - it just looks so yummy in the red and white - not to mention those peppermints!
    Fabulous cards.

  2. Lynn, best of luck to you with the DT entry. Your cards are gorgeous and you woud be such a great addition to the team. Your work is ALWAYS top-notch! All three of your cards are fabulously festive. I especially love the whimsical border with the peppermints on the thrrd card. Too cute! :)

  3. Lynn, prayers and crossed fingers are headed your way that you make the team, your work is always over the top gorgeous and so much fun to look at. Let them know you have a fan who keeps a notebook filled with your work :) Love all the cards, I really cannot pick a favorite. Good luck!!!!

  4. Fantastic cards Lynn, my favorite is the first one! I'm like everyone else, crossing fingers and toes that you are chosen. You would be such an asset!

  5. Wonderful cards Lynn. I love the wise men.

  6. I can't imagine you wouldn't be chosen for the CAS DT!! Fab entries!!

  7. The design team would be lucky to have you...these are all terrific!

  8. All your cards are fabulous Lynn - Good Luck I will have my fingers crossed for you. I agree with Christy you would be a wonderful addition to the SCS Design Team. If you hadn't of said anything I wouldn't have picked up the smudge on the entry for Julies Challenge. I love your use of the Ribbon Loop Punch for this design.

  9. Hi Lynn, here's hoping you make it to the design team. I am pulling for you and your cards should have no trouble in helping you earn the spot. They are all beautiful and should knock the socks off the people who decide.

  10. oh wow! I will have to see if you won a spot. In my book...you are a shoo in!

  11. ohhhh..I am revisiting the candies! I love, love them!
