April Creative Crew Challenges and Samples

It's that time to unveil the new challenges and your inspiration for the April Creative Crew submissions on SplitCoastStampers.  The challenges this month were once again fantastic, and very doable.
All we ask is that you try to keep your projects at least 95% Stampin' Up! (SU)  If you are 100% SU then please use SUO as one of your keywords, if you are using a little contraband (non SU) then please also use the SUM keyword.

And lastly you definitely want to put in CreativeCrew as one of your keywords so we can find your creations.  If you have any questions you can always contact me or one of the other Creative Crew Design Team members for guidance or assistance

Well what are you waiting for - here are this months challenges, does as many or as little as you want :)  Just participate and break out your stamping supplies!!!

April 2011 Focus/Creativity sampler:
Celebrating April Showers by Al Jolson!

Life is not a highway strewn with flowers,
Still it holds a goodly share of bliss,
When the sun gives way to April showers,
Here is the point you should never miss.

Though April showers may come your way,
They bring the flowers that bloom in May.
So if it's raining, have no regrets,
Because it isn't raining rain, you know, It's raining violets,
And where you see clouds upon the hills,
You soon will see crowds of daffodils,
So keep on looking for a blue bird, And list'ning for his song,
Whenever April showers come along.

CCREW0411CF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM - Catalog Focus: * Punches *
We all know that SU! punches rock, so this month punch us up some flowers, butterflies, birds, and bugs! You don't have to make actual punch art, but show us what your punches can do!

CCREW0411DF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM - DSP/Color Focus:
When you see Bluebirds you know spring is here! So use this very blue color combo: Pacific Point, Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand. Which also happens to be the colors of the Blueberry Crisp DSP!

Well those colors screamed winter to me - not spring :)

CCREW0411HF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM - Holiday/Seasonal Focus: * Mother Ocean *
The rain fills our Oceans with the lovely water that balances life here on earth. So in honor of Mother Ocean let's do some watercoloring! Break out your aquapainter and your inks, crayons, pencils, and blender pens! Show us watercoloring at it's best.

I didn't do a project for this, because frankly I stink at Watercoloring!!  But I may try it sometime during the month - only time will tell, however, please be sure to click HERE to check out everyone else projects. 

CCREW0411SF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM - SB Inspiration Focus: * NO DSP! *
