LSC 232 -I'm Hungry! Let's get something to STAMP! 8/7/09
LSC232… I'm hungry! Let’s get something to STAMP!
Hey there, fellow Stampers!! Dawn is on a little vacation this week. Fun thing is…Dawn is actually coming by to visit me in real life today (Friday!) In preparation, she asked if I had any ideas for a Limited Supply Challenge…and my idea met with her approval! Since she is on the road, I am actually hosting this week’s challenge! WooHoo! I feel quite privileged, and more than a little nervous, so go easy on me!
I don’t know about the rest of you, but in the “Challenge Chaser” crowd, we love our stamps…but we love food too! So, food is my inspiration! Here is your challenge…it is two-fold:
First: Your card or project needs to have food/beverages as its main theme. You know, pretty tea cups, yummy cupcakes, tangy citrus. Or maybe a scene with friends sitting at a café, or your favorite grill-meister in his element. Just think food!
That part is easy…
Second: The real limit for you today is in the COLORS. You must only use colors that have “edible names”. Such as certainly celery, pumpkin pie, barely banana, creamy caramel.
Lots of retired Stampin’ Up colors fit the bill too…kiwi kiss, true thyme, purely pomegranate. Get the idea? This means NO real red or night of navy! Leave your basic black behind and your baja breeze and sahara sand on the beach! We’re talking edibles here!!
Now…I guess there must always be exceptions…so using whisper white to stamp your images and sentiments on is quite alright! Of course very vanilla could get some extra attention today!
And for those lined images that you need to color…using some black ink that won’t smear is a given. But leave the black and gray out of your card stock choices!
For those who use non-SU card stock…just like the Tuesday color challenges, try to match up with the SU color palette as best as you can.
I was up with a coughing fit and decided to check in on the Friday challenge since will actually get to play again this week! And it's one of my favorite subjects....food. Did you know I can only tolerate food scents...others send me into a raging coughing fit!
But I'm still really tired and think I can actually get back to sleep. I'll get on thi sfirst thing i the morning!! Thanks for filling in...great challenge!
Location: CAS. Embellished. It's all good. Happy stamping!

This was fun. Ms. Boo has taken some of the fun out of the challenge by supplying all the names, because some of the fun is doing the brainstorming and brainwork for these challenges. Luckily I had already done my brainwork before I saw her list. Here's what I came up with:
