2 Peas Winterfest Challenges

The 2 Peas Winterfest is an annual event that offers a broad selection of stamping challenges.

I hosted a batik technique challenge that called for stamping versamark on glossy paper but not using embossing paper and ironing as is usually required. Spray shimmer mist provided soft colors for the background.

Here are the cards/projects I completed for the for Winterfest during the past week.

For the challenge requiring special folds I made this double slider card.
The outside is sprayed with shimmer pearls.
The children's book The Hungry Catepillar became my theme for the LIT challenge. It was fun to use the catepillar stamp than had sat in my collection for a long time uninked. I inked a small honeycomb background stamp in shimmer pearls and stamped on gold paper. The catepillar is covered with glossy accents. The butterfly is on the inside of the card and is a 2 part die fromQuikuts.

I used Crayola Model Magic for the clay challenge. It air drys overnight and is very light but thining rolled embellishments are fragile when dry.

The flower challenge required stamping on a printed background.

I brayered the image background for this reflection card and used some scraps behind.

This tulip was stamped on a reused scrap of paper that I used to catch the shimmer mist overspray. I added several coats of embossing powder over the entire piece to create the inlaid effect.

I punch many scraps from the week to cover this empty envelope box to create a storage box for my completed cards from this event.


  1. Gorgeous gorgeous work, Jan. I love how soft, yet colorful all of your pieces are. Dreaming of spring flowers with all of these, too.

  2. Absolutely beautiful, one and all. The tulip stamp is also one of my favorites to bring out at this time of year. Your use of it is fabulous!

  3. You made some wonderful cards for winterfest! Love the box you made for them. Even your scraps are pretty!
