A new a•muse|studio challenge group

A new a•muse|studio challenge group is up and running on Papercraft Planet.  Please join me in the new adventure of Ban The Bulk (BTB) cards.  I love to make Clean and Simple (CAS) cards however I need a few more layers, a little embellishment and some pop.  I want YOU to think about mailable cards for BTB.  A card that will fit into an envelope that is mailable without any extra postage.  In the past I never mailed cards, just collected them!;)

You can join in anytime, the challenges will be bi-monthly, only 2 times a month, achievable for all of us.  The challenges will be inspired by our natural environment, healthy living, color or whatever MOVES me.  I have been stamping and sitting in my stamp room for the last 6 months, looking at challenges, wanting to participate, with motivation lacking I thought this type of challenge would GET ME MOVING, in more ways that one! 

So what are you waiting for?  You can ban the bulk too!  Here’s the first challenge!

Challenge #1 (BTB1) Planting Season

With spring planting season upon us, our inspiration for our first challenge comes from this colorful seed packet.  Our manicures are safe with this challenge as we won’t be getting our nails dirty!  Get your exercise by bending and squating for your paper craft materials instead!  Our challenge is to use three colors to create a card, one non-bulky embellishment (such as a punched shape, ribbon, flowers or glitter), and one layer.  Any theme and any image is fine.  Bonus points for A muse Studio images or sentiments!

Challenge deadline is Sunday, May 15th.  A card will be announced on May 16th to receive an A muse Studio gift from me. 

Be sure to tag your card BTB1 and post a comment that you have uploaded to your photo gallery on Papercraft Planet.  I will then be able to paste it to our Group Album.  Only properly tagged cards will be eligible for the A must Studio gift.

Good luck and I look forward to seeing your card creations!

Here’s my take on the seed packet colors.

With one set, you can create this card and more!
The leaves fan out as the sunray background behind the House of Gurney text.  The butterfly is orange like the bottom of the pear.  Embellishments include a little rhinestone black thorax and a black paper layer.

Colors – Orange, Black, Green
