KL SNS Challenge 22

Hey-a, Hi-a, Ho-there

It's Saturday so you know what that means ... another Challenge over at KL SNS. This week our challenge was to create a card with sewing and flowers to celebrate National Quilting Day. I wanted to use my new stamp from DRS Designs. This is a new line that Kelly is now stocking at her store. There are 7 designs, with many of them just in time for Easter.

Since I didn't have a subtle shade of DP, I made my own with with shaving cream. My kids were in HEAVEN! I love all the perks of this technique ... your studio smells awesome and actually ends up clean afterward. I don't know if you can see in the picture but I used purple, blue and silver. Sorry about the darkness of the pictures but it is snowing like crazy here and we're kinda lacking in the natural sunlight I normally use.

"But Joanna," you say, " isn't the challenge to use sewing AND FLOWERS?" Yep. And that's why I made card number TWO! I don't know about you but once I step away from a card ... I hate adding to it. I'd rather just start over fresh.

I used the DRS Designs stamp again and challenged myself to make it look different. I think the two card DO look different, what about you? In hindsight I realize that I probably should have made the cross drape white (since HE has already risen on Easter) but I forgot.

So head on over to Kelly's and play. Remember the top three cards win the cool blinky for their blog.

Your deadline is Friday, March 26th at 12 midnight EST.


  1. Beautiful cards Joanna!! LOVE these and I LOVE your cool shaving cream technique!! I taught that at a class several years ago and I agree--it smells GREAT! *Ü* Was a tad messy but easy clean up. Looks fabulous with this Easter set too! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! x

  2. Both of your Easter cards are fabulous Joanna! What a fab idea to make your own colors out of shaving cream...very creative and fun!

  3. Lovely cards! That is a really neat stamp; I like how they designed the cross/t.

  4. Love the shaving cream technique, and the colors look terrific! Your sewn card looks lovely, too, and we now have some blue-green flowers in the store like those. I hope to get the other colors (pretty pastel yellows and pinks in soon). You could always paper peice a white piece over your purple material on the cross (just a thought) :) Either way, it is lovely! GREAT job with the challenge! Hugs, Kel

  5. Great card Joanna! Love the colors and stitching!
