GC#118 Spicy Supply Challenge - Crimpers

This week it's the Gingersnap Creations Spicy Supply Challenge where the tool to use is a crimper. Wow, has it been a long time since I used one! I found mine in a drawer and after dusting it off :-) I ran through watercolor paper colored with Glimmer Mists in turquoise, trunk bay, and puerto rico. I cut it into 1 1/4" squares and arranged 6 of them in alternating fashion over a text stamped piece of kraft cardstock. Going with September's friendship theme I had to use the Hero Arts friend definition text! Then I added bits of stamped text to half of the squares and added a ribbon colored with the same colors of mists. In placing the ribbon on top, I think it gives the card the look of a present - after all, friends are some of the best gifts to have!

This challenge (see the GC post HERE) will run until Oct. 9th so you have plenty of time to locate your crimper and join in!

Stamp Credits: Hero Arts and Katie Pertiet for Autumn Leaves

The stark contrast of the bright blue crimped mats, it's wonderful. Such a great friend card.

I love this card! The brilliant blues were a great choice against the brown background, very pretty. And hey! I have a crimper! I bought it because it looked cool and I thought that while it was expensive I would use it all the time. My head was full of ideas. I got home with my crimper and all those ideas stayed at the store! I am going to have to come up with something for this contest too. Yours is excellent!
