IBCC stands for Idea Book & Catalog Challenge. The IBC challenges are intended to get everyone thinking about the Stampin’ UP catalog as an idea book and not only a catalog (since it is intended to be BOTH!). The Idea Book & Catalogs are all filled with great sample projects which you can use as inspiration.
For IBC Challenge #4, use the card above as your inspiration piece. This card is from the brand new IBC Spring 09!!! It is filled with bunches of new accessories including the Big Shot!! PLUS there are over 50 new stamp sets!!! It is a great catalog. To take a peek, click on the catalog in my side bar at the top (PDF).
The winner of this challenge will be chosen at random from everyone who enters. The winning card will be showcased on my blog 🙂
1. post your card and a link to this challenge on your blog
2. post a comment on this post with a link to your card.
Entries are due by next Friday!!
I chose to use the house shape as my inspiration. For my challenge card, I made the card below:
This card features designer series paper that will only be available from the Sale-a-bration brochure starting Feb 1st. The thank you sentiment is from the NEW hostess level 2 stamp set called A Little Something. The window stamp and accessories are from the retired SU set called Window Dressing. It was a level 3 hostess stamp set in the previous catalog.
To make the roof piece, I cut a square 4X4inches and then cut straight along the diagonal. Then I attached a little chimney and scalloped edge with So Saffron Cardstock. The square for the base of the house is also 4X4inches. For all the coloring, I used my SU markers.
