IBCC #25

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 many different types of projects.
The card shown above is from the brand new Idea Book and Catalog for 09-10. This card features the Curvy Verses stamp set shown below:
This stamp is on my mile long wish list. These phrases are just so cute.
  • Stamp sets used: Curvy Verses and Nursery Necessities, Tres Chic background stamp
  • Cardstock: Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink
  • Ink: Basic Black
  • Accessories: 1/2inch Melon Mambo polka dot ribbon, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Scallop Circle punch, 1 and 3/8inch circle punch, pretties kit

Use the above card as your inspiration for your project this week. Be sure to leave me a comment with a link to your project so I can see it. I may just showcase your project on my blog!

Here is the card I made using the inspiration card. This card is my last car for D is for Dog Week. I hope you got a couple of ideas and remember to purchase by Saturday to receive the super cute scallop tags free with your stamp set.

  • Card measures 4.5inches square. Base cardstock is Orchid Opulence.
  • Paw was stamped using Rich Razzleberry onto Whisper White cardstock. The scallop circle is Bermuda Bay cardstock.
  • Flower accent was made using Rich Razzleberry and Bermuda Bay cardstock and a button.
  • Dog was stamped onto a 2inch circle using Soft Suede ink. Dog bone was stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink.
  • TIP It is easy to cut circles with a cutting tool like the Stampin’ UP Circle Cutter or the Martha Stewart circle cutter. They cut up to 5.5inch circles!

  1. Curvy verses is a set I keep meaning to get, and keep putting it off. I need to go ahead and do it! I love your dog themed cards as well!
