10 Minute Craft Dash #12

February 20, 2013

My first attempt at the 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge. It should really be renamed Heart Attack challenge!


Before starting, I got my copics, stamps, inkpad and cardstock ready to go.

10 Minute Craft Dash #12 - Before

That felt like the shortest 10 minutes ever!  Here’s how it went:

00:00 – Start the timer, start music on computer.
00:40 – Finished stamping and thought Hey this isn’t so bad.
01:00 – Coloring the “thanks” and realize I forgot to get the blender out. Panic as I try to find colorless blender.
03:23 – Start fussy cutting and thought I must be stupid to do coloring and fussy cutting. Good thing I fussy cut the same thing yesterday.
08:17 – Stamp “so much” on cardbase and start panicking as I cut the foam tape for the “thanks”.
09:37 – Finished with 23 seconds to spare.

Not the best fussy cutting, but I’m happy with the result!

Thanks So Much

And I present to you my table after the craft dash.  I didn’t even close the lid on my ink pad 😦

    This is so cut! I love the way you added color!

  11. carol Says:

    Fantastic card and a laugh out-loud description of the process. My perspective sees pretty amazing fussy-cutting, especially given your ‘heart attack’ inducing speed work. Whoever receives this – a guaranteed, instant brightness added to their day! Thanks for sharing your fun episode!!

  12. Marlena M Says:

    This is AWESOME!!! I totally agree it’s physically exhilarating…I can’t do this challenge with a migraine…I feel like my head will explode~

  13. Leigh Penner Says:

    This challenge stresses me out, too! But, at the same time, it’s fun! Go figure!
    Your card is fabulous, Pamela, and your fussy cutting looks amazing!

  14. Meghan Says:

    This is a fabulous card. The fact that you accomplished it in under 10 minutes makes it even more spectacular.

  15. Linda Says:

    Fabulous card and write up! Hard to believe that you made this beauty in under 10 minutes!

    I may have to give the challenge a go someday….when I have a definite vision in my head. Otherwise, that 10 minutes will go by and I’ll just havemy card base scored and folded…lol!


  16. Kara Says:

    awesome! i thought for sure you used a die for the thanks, but no!!

  17. Cassi Says:

    fabulous, love your cutting and coloring!

  18. WHAT??? That is so cute, it would have taken me an hour…and your blending looks flawless…I need to learn how to do this, I thought copics did it on their own, bought some….not so much……????

  19. Paulina Says:

    I am laughing so hard reading your post….Heart Attach Challenge? For some reason, I don’t think as many people would play along if I named it that. *wink* You did a terrific job on this card, especially with it being your first time playing in the challenge!
