24 Hour Scramble

Hi Everyone, its been a busy 24+ hours of crafting.  I spent Friday scrap booking with my scrappin' bud and then participated in a 24 hour scramble over at the Hero Arts Flickr group.  There were twelve 90 minute scrambles starting every two hours on the half, with a 30 minute break between scrambles. Twelve hostesses provided the scramble theme at the start of the 90 minutes. At least one Hero Arts stamp is a must on these cards. Hero Arts provides the 12 winners each with a digi-stamp prize.

I hosted 1 of the twelve, and got to participate in 4 others.  Since the scramble started Friday afternoon for me, I wasn't able to participate until I got home at 11pm, one quick scramble then off to bed as I had hostess duties at 6:30 Saturday morning.

It has been a blast, and I am going to share my cards and each of the themes with you.  Hope you enjoy looking through the photos.

Scramble #4, theme use an edge punch

Next up the scramble I hosted #8.  My theme was to make a shaped card and have nothing white, off-white or cream showing. My sample card is below.  I randomly added red stickles to the stamped wreath.
Next up scramble # 9 right after mine, the theme was an animal of another color.  I have almost no animal stamps, insects yes...animals no.  Weird huh.  I found this cat in a set that was a freebie with a magazine subscription.  It was a TINY set.  This is a mini card, 3x4 inches.
Next scramble #10, theme was a color challenge, use only Red, Gold and Cream. I wish that gold embossing would photograph better for me.

Then scramble #11; the theme was to use 3 patterned papers. You could use stamps to create your own patterned paper.  I made two for this challenge, the polka dots was my first, but then I wondered if the 3 patterns were too similar.  I made another card, the stamped flowers are actually stamped on patterned paper.

And the last scramble #12, theme...Time

That is all. This is such a group of fun and talented ladies, it was definitely time well spent...Thanks for stopping by.

Wasn't it fun? And I'm really enjoying seeing the cards again on our individual blog posts! My favorite here of yours is your first one with the holly, and your all dotty one for scramble #11.
