Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Happy Friday Crafty Friends!

I’m Sharri and I am so excited to be your challenge hostess this week for Free For All Friday!

Thank you Lori for giving me the opportunity!


As I was contemplating what I wanted to do for the challenge, I came across a little blurb that said April is National Grilled Cheese Month. That got me thinking about what other national days were in the month of April so I did a bit of research and found out there were a lot! One specifically caught my eye that I thought would be fun for a challenge – National Safety Pin Day which is April 10th.

My challenge for you is to use a safety pin(s). Now I can’t make it that easy for you so I am adding a twist - usually safety pins are used on fabric so I would also like you to include some type of fabric on your card/project.

Here is my sample to give you a bit of inspiration -

I used Friends Are Forever and Masculine Messages stamp sets.

The papers are Passionate Pink, Turquoise Sea and Chocolate Brown Pure Luxury Papers

I incorporated a couple of different fabrics on my card – the yoyo’s and the corduroy buttons. I added small beads to a little safety pin and used another one to attach it to the yoyo.


The deadline for this challenge is Thursday April 12, 2012 at 8:00 p.m. CST.

I need to raid the house to see if I have any fabric.  lol

What a fun challenge Sharri!  Love your sample!  Thanks so much for hosting...and I hope to get to play this week!

Sounds fun, Sharri!  Love the bold colors of your sample.

Hmm... I see baby shower cards in the near future...

Thank you Ladies! I can wait to see what you come up with!

I made one I'm thinking about making another will upload soon :)

That is a gorgeous card!  Hmmm, not sure I have any safety pins around that aren't in use.

Cool challenge.  Love your card!   I've been painting my craft room this week.  I took over my sons old room since he moved out.  All my stuff is stashed away right now.  I so want to try this.

We have some beautiful cards in the gallery. You ladies are so creative!!

Will DP with pictures of safety pins on it do?  LOL!
