Welcome to The Twisted Challenges..A new beginning

Well hello everyone..

Welcome to my first card post of 2018..This year has been a challenging one so far for me..but every challenge I face is making me stronger.. this week marks 3 months post my spine surgery. Its a long story of how and why but suffice to say I am doing really well.

My return to crafting is going to be very slow but that didn't stop me, Saumya or Neha from planning. We were all stuck in a rut and we wanted to snap ourselves out of it..thus the idea for a challenge popped in and then we decided to blog it, so now we have The Twisted Challenges open to all..something that will make you think and challenge you along the way.

Theme this month is "Checkered Florals" i.e. flowers but with a checkered pattern in it..

I chose to go with paper piecing as it was the simplest I could attempt. 

  • I started with picking some checks,plaids,squares etc pattern papers from my stash.
  • Then, I took the outline flower from Altenew's Beautiful flower stamp set and stamped on my checkered paper and fussy cut it.
  • Took the leaves and stamped two layers with Memento black and Catherine pooler grass skirt ink. Fussy cut the leaves.
  • I die cut the scalloped border from white Card stock  using MFT dies as well as the
  •  word HUGS. It is also from MFT stamps..

  • On a note card base measuring 4.5×5.5, I glued the scalloped edge and blue pattern paper on it.
  • Glued the flower leaves and a sweet sentiment from Mft stamps.
  •  Finished off with some black enamel dots.

Hope you will love the inspiration my other teamies have for you and do join us every month in this crazy and Twisted Challenges.
