Days 1-4 of’s Pop Up Challenge

Hey everyone!

I’m here today, showing what I created for Kathy’s Pop Up Challenge at


You can read all about it here.  The pop up challenge is over now, but she will be hosting her 3rd 30 day coloring challenge Oct 1 – Oct 30.  You can read more about the 30 day coloring challenge here.  As I’ve said before, I absolutely LOVE challenges!  They motivate and inspire me…even better when there’s a theme!

The theme of the 4 day pop up challenge was lines.

Here is my Day 1:

For this challenge, I was inspired by patterned paper and background stamps, so I doodled some triangles, and colored with water colors.


Sharpie pen, mint green

Kuretake gansai tambi water color

Heidi Swapp gold color shine

Day 2:

I created this card for my niece’s first birthday.  I was inspired by the lines Kathy created using stitched embossing dies.  Since I don’t have any, I thought of running my card stock through the sewing machine with no thread.  It worked out great!

Copic Markers

Simon Says Stamp tiny hearts stencil

Tim Holtz distress ink in colors: spun sugar & picked raspberry

Day 3:

I didn’t have too much time on Day 3.  In fact, I started coloring this fish tank 1/2 an hour before midnight!  I was inspired by all the other participants’ blue watery, oceany waves, so I created mine in this fish tank.

…and finally, Day 4:

For this card, I wanted to try creating lines in a different way than my previous days.  I created the background stripes by scoring a piece of water color paper with my score board.  (It created the look of an embossing folder!)  Then, I water colored right on top, and love how it turned out!  Without this challenge, I might not have thought to try this “technique,” but I will for sure be using it again in the future!

Mama Elephant Playful Pups

Mama Elephant Landscape Trio dies

copic markers

Winnie & Walter The Party stamp set (balloon)

Tim Holtz distress ink in colors: tumbled glass, chipped sapphire, salty ocean, evergreen bough, mowed lawn, & pine needles.

That’s it!  I absolutely loved this pop up challenge!  I love that it had a theme, since it forced me to be more creative to change it up each day.  I also was able to participate all 4 days.

Happy Tuesday!!!
