Tutterow Challenge

Sunday, October 6, 2013

If you’ve ever visited Tammy Tutterow’s blog, then you know she creates amazing projects and intensely wonderful tutorials on Tuesdays.  This week the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge encourages you to be inspired by one of her tutorials or projects and join in the fun this week!
This week my project incorporates Tammy's Pastel Background on Kraft.  You can find the tutorial here.  I switched things up a bit by using different colors as well as a different background stamp.  (With the "Love" tag, I even used a bright pink paper for the background and I still achieved great results!) The paper did curl.  To correct the curling, I sandwiched the completely dry tag between waxed paper and set a heavy book on top of it overnight.  The next morning, the tag looked perfect! Don't you love those gold feathers?  They are from the BasicGrey Persimmon collection. The paper "curls" were created by tightly wrapping a sliver of paper around a pencil.
Be sure to join in the Tammy Tutterow Challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog.  You don't have to copy her work.  Just tell us how you were inspired.  One random participant will receive a $50 voucher to The Simon Says Stamp online store.  Your project could also be chosen to be featured in our designer spotlight!  Cool, huh?
Happy Stamping!
