It’s time for the Baker’s Dozen Studio Challenge. This is a monthly opportunity for us to share what makes our stamping studios hum. Each month we will have a fun, crafty question so we can share our favorites, some tips and tricks, stamping advice and more.

The theme for August is:

PROJECT RUNWAY! Do you watch this show? It’s perfect for creative types like us! On PR, the designers are given crazy challenges each week and asked to maintain their own personal style or point of view in their creation.

So, what’s your stamping style or point of view? Would you consider your style to be CAS (Clean and Simple), Cutesy, Graphic, Vintage, Elegant, Layers & More Layers, or what? Describe it any way you like, it’s your style after all! Today’s challenge is to show us a couple of different projects using the same supplies. Show us one CAS card and one Fancy Fold card while still retaining your own personal style as much as possible.

My style tends to be CAS. I love that CAS cards can have the smallest details, yet still stand out. I admire how easy it is for some to do layered cards, but for me, I have the hardest time making them. Even my layered cards tend to be CAS in some way or other! 🙂

Even though these cards are completely different, I was able to keep a CAS feel on them, even with the fancy fold card. I love the use of white on my cards and find it relaxing to be able to use it. My fancy fold card is called a Spring Card and I used this tutorial I found on SCS. I’ve never made a Spring Card before and really had fun with it! It’s a unique way to give a card and the recipient will be sure to love it!

I used CreativiTea for both of these cards and adore how sweet these images are. They were colored with Tim Holtz Distress Markers. The more I use these markers, the more I love them!

The layered card also uses Imaginisce Hello Cupcake and a handful of versatile dies.
