Whachadoin' Wednesday

Whachadoin'? Are you up for a little challenge?

Beginning today, Storage Units, Ink & More will be issuing a Whachadoin' Wednesday challenge. What a great excuse to hit the stamp room (closet?) and get creating! What's even better is that there will be a new challenge every Wednesday. We would love you to play along. Just upload your creation to either your blog or SCS and show us what you've got! If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword SUINKWWC1 so we can find it in the gallery. Oh, and don't forget to leave a comment on the SUINK blog to let us know where we can view your masterpiece.

Here's my card .....
Can you guess what the challenge is this week?

If you guessed...EMBOSSING got it! The challenge is to use any embossing folder somewhere on your project.

I chose the Distressed Stripes Cuttlebug folder for my card. I started out making a card using the SFYTT challenge but veered off track slightly along the way. That seems to happen to me a lot. :-) I love to combine Mr. Campy (from Cosmo Cricket) and the "Roughin' It" stamp set from Storage Units, Ink & More. They look like they were made for each other. Core'dinations card stock is the perfect choice to use when embossing because it has a coordinated core color that just "pops" when sanded. Denise carries a wonderful selection of Core'dinations in a terrific range of colors in her store. Be sure to check it out.

It's all about the details:
Card stock: Core'dinations
Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket
Stamps: Storage Units, Ink & More
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Distress Ink
Accessories: Foam Squares, brads
Tools: Scor-pal, Copic Markers, SU Punches, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, sanding block
