Scotty Christmas

Join me for our new challenge over at Christmas with the Cuties!  Our theme for this challenge is "Something with Fur or Feathers" and don't forget, your creation must be Christmas themed and feature a cute image.  

We are a JUST FOR FUN challenge and I hope you will continue to play along for your chance to proudly display our Winners or Top 3 Badge.

This image and sentiment is from the Christmas Scottie set by Stampin Up!  I started by stamping the scotty with Versamark then sprinkled black embossing powder overtop and pulled out my heat gun to set.

I found some Christmas plaid paper in my stash and used circle die-cuts as well as a snowflake die-cut and arranged the backdrop. The green cardstock was embossed using Diamond Shadows folder.

Now it's your turn to show us your Christmas project and make sure you check out the Design Team's creations for some inspiration and remember - projects must be Christmassy and have to be Cute!

The First Dance as Mr. & Mrs.

ALL STITCHED UP (real or faux) is the theme for our new challenge at Creative Knockouts!

We have a fabulous sponsor so make sure to upload your creation for your chance to win 2 digital images from All Dressed Up!

As soon as I saw this image, I had to have it - The First Dance.  I love the simplicity of the image - so many beautiful possibilities.

I used Copic markers to color the image and added a few gems to the front.  In true form, I AGAIN forgot the theme of the challenge and had to go back and add some faux stitching along the edges.

The sentiment is from the Wedding Bundle collection by Bonnie Garby Designs.

Make sure you check out the amazingly creative creations from our Design Team then it's your turn to start creating!

Glistening Snowflakes - Heat Embossing

HEAT EMBOSSING is the theme for our June challenge at Christmas Craft Creations!   

Our challenge will run until July 11th so make sure to upload your creation by then for your chance to win a special prize.

I started by applying Versamark to the snowflake tree stamp from the Glistening Snowflakes collection by Simon Says Stamp then sprinkled with white embossing powder and used my heat gun to set.  I pulled out some Distress Inks, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans and played with the colors until I was happy.  After I watered down some white acrylic paint, I used a toothbrush to add some splatter and once dry I sprayed with Sparkle Shimmer Spray and added a few rhinestones.  I ran the Noel die-cut thru ol' Big Shot several times and glued them together to create some height.

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to jump over to CCC and check out the fabulous creations by our Design Team.

Please remember to add our challenge badge (above) to your post for your chance to win!

Birthday Balloons

A new month brings a new challenge at Get Creative Challenges!

Our theme this month is MORE THAN ONE FOLD - show us your creativitand put those folds into play!

We are a JUST FOR FUN challenge and I hope you will play along for your chance to proudly display our Winner or Top 3 Badges.

To showcase the many folds, I used a double easel fold to create this birthday card.  I followed Gloria's instructions here and they are easy to follow. The papers are from the Magical Birthday Boy collection by Echo Park and the Birthday Balloons die-cuts are by Pretty Pink Posh.  To create the "Happy" I used a die-cut and ran it thru my Big Shot multiple times and glued them together to create a stack and heat embossed "birthday" on black cardstock and used a banner die-cut.

Thanks so much for stopping by and make sure you hop over to Get Creative Challenges for some more inspiration from our fabulous Design Team!
