2RB Banana Split Sunday Challenge 35


This week 2RedBananas' Banana Split Sunday Challenge is to follow a recipe - use 3 eyelets (that's right, time to dig out your old eyelets), 2 ribbons or fibers and 1 oval (or more). How fun! I tried a new recipe for fettuccine today and a new recipe for a card.
The card base is cream CS with a block of Spring Fling Collection DP by Pink Paislee and another piece of scallop-edged DP. The sentiment is from 2RB's October/November Journaling Spot stamp set, along with the acorn stamp. The sentiment was cut out with a Sizzix Scallop Frame die. I layered the brown striped grosgrain ribbon over a cream scalloped ribbon. And, of course, I can't forget the three brown eyelets.

This was a very easy recipe to follow. See how you do with it and post your creation to 2RedBananas' blog.

Stamps: October/November Journaling Spot - 2RedBananas

2RB Banana Split Sunday Challenge 34


This week's 2RedBananas Banana Split Sunday Challenge is a color challenge - use three of these fours colors: red, orange, yellow and brown (or all four colors as a bonus). This week there will be a prize of a fall colors goodie bag awarded to one random participant.
I made a card this week using the new 2RB stamp set called Autumn Leaves Penny. So cute! The card base is brown CS with a block of MM Autumn Splendor DP and a partial circle of some more Autumn Splendor DP. The image is colored with watercolor pencils and some Smooch and matted on brown CS. The felt flowers are by American Crafts.

This card is loosely based on the sketch from the Card Patterns blog. Be sure to check it out.

I hope you'll join the Bananas in this week's challenge. Don't forget to go to 2RB's blog to participate and see the DT members' samples, and go to to see the new stamps that were just released in October.
