View Full Version : Week 19 Challenge: Get Stacked!

09-25-2009, 09:56 PM
If you are like me, you have amassed a collection of designer paper stacks in every theme and from every company. Mat stacks are my favorite. Your challenge this week is to put those paper packs to use. Make a card, atc, whatever, as long as you use some paper that you bought in a stack.

I'll have a little prize next weekend for a random entry winner.

Winner posted at the bottom. :)

I have a KI Memories designer paper mat stack staring at me right now, and me wondering why on earth did I buy it. I haven't made a card from it in ages, but have been using the more "out there" papers to make envelopes. Maybe I'll make some matching sets this week. Thanks for the challenge Heather

What is paper mat stack please?? It's for the French speaking girl here :) Are we talking about any pattern paper??

09-26-2009, 09:55 PM
This sounds like one I can actually do. How do I enter my card?

Hi Pascale. A stack is either a pad of patterned or even solid paper. The mat stacks are intented to be mats for scrapbooking photos so the paper is thicker than our normal patterned paper (like patterned cardstock.)

Hi Rebecca. You can upload your card in the gallery under creative team challenges, mystery challenge and put 19 or stacked in your title. Also, I haven't posted my samples yet so if you would like to link to this post, that would be great too.

what a great way to actually USE these stacks that we buy :)

09-27-2009, 12:20 AM
Thanks Heather, I want to check out your samples before I upload my card.

My paper stacks are stacked up to the roof, ergo I can and will make a card for this challenge. Great theme, Heather.

I can't believe I've only bought paper stacks from TAC before, but have drooled over the stacks at the stores. I think I'll also challenge myself to see how many cards I can make with one 12x12 sheet of pp from one of the TAC stacks I have.


09-27-2009, 12:18 PM
Thanks for the info :) I do have some of that!! I'll try! :)

09-27-2009, 05:56 PM
I did it, here's my card (http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=23789). Thanks, Heather, I needed to be reminded about supplies I have.

Great! This challenge fits in with my new motto "Use what you have before you buy!"

Here is a card (http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=23851&limit=recent) I made with a Basic Grey stack.
I won last week so please do not include me in this week's drawing but thanks Heather for a fun challenge.

Just a reminder, if you've done a card for the stacked challenge, you have until tonight at midnight (my time) to upload it into the gallery. I think you'll like the prize that I have for you.

Thought I was too late until I saw the deadline was midnight...and I'm still cutting it close:D Hope this counts, but if it doesn't, that's ok...at least I finally participated in one of the challenges. I used dsp from an Autumn Leaves paper pack. I love paper piecing, so I thought it would be a great way to use dsp.

Here's my card (http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=23867).

Here's mine:
