Manic Lockdown Challenge, Final Week 4

Manic Lockdown Challenge Starter -

Today begins the fourth and final week of our Monday Manic Lockdown Challenge. The card we're using as our starting point can be found on Page 44 of the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. You can see it in the picture here. It's the project shown on the left.

What is the Manic Monday Lockdown Challenge?

  • I’ll give you an image of a project from one of the Stampin’ Up! catalogs, along with a similar project I made using supplies that I have on hand.
  • You have until the following Sunday night to come up with your own project using supplies YOU have on hand. It doesn’t have to be exact, but just use the sample as a starting point.
  • Submit a photo of your creation in the Comments section on my Facebook page before Sunday night using THIS LINKIf you have trouble doing it, email me a picture at and I will post it for you.
  • Each submission will be assigned a number. The following Monday I’ll do a random drawing, and the winner will receive a sampling of craft supplies from me. (Sorry, U.S. only.)

This is the last week for this challenge. Everyone can play — and you can enter as many times as you’d like! — but I can only select a winner from those currently residing in the U.S.  No demonstrators, please.

My Design For This Week's Manic Lockdown Challenge

Manic Lockdown Challenge -

For this week's challenge I decided to use products from the Come Sail Away Suite Bundle:

* If you pick up the Sailing Home Bundle or the Come Sail Away Suite Bundle you will save 10% on both the stamp set and the dies!

I colored in the sailboat with my Stampin' Blends, and used a Sponge Brayer and a wedge from a Stamping Sponge to create the water and sky.

The circle “window” and sentiment I created using my Layering Circle Dies, but you could easily use different sizes of circle punches, too. Foam Adhesive Strips helped pop up the “window,” and some Stampin' Dimensionals for the greeting. I should have used the Foam Adhesive Strips on the greeting, too, because I had to double the dimensionals to bring it to the same height. 🙂

I then layered a small strip of Burlap Ribbon beneath the card sentiment to finish my card.

Check out this handmade travel journal I made for a friend using these same supplies.
