Make It Sparkle

Hi Crafty Friends,

Challenge #85 is up at Cut It Up Challenge.  Our theme is CHRISTMAS - make it sparkle using sequins.  I resisted sequins for so long and now I love using them.  It's much easier to mail a card with sequins rather than gems and you still get your "bling."

Here's my project:

I used a Darice Snowflake embossing folder and then added snowflakes die cuts from the Jaded Blossom Winter Dies.  I also die cut the tag from JB's Mini Tag Dies 2 and added a sentiment from JB's Christmas Wishes stamp set.  The sequins are from Doodlebug Designs.

This challenge is being sponsored by 
As Cute as a Button.

Be sure to follow the theme and don't forget to use a DIE CUT.

Delightful Monthly Challenge #5

Hello Crafty Friends,
 Happy Thanksgiving to those of you celebrating in the U.S!!!

Today's post is for Delightful Challenges by Digital Delights by Louby Loo.  It is the final challenge of 2015 but our challenges will return on the 4th Thursday of each month in 2016.
Our challenges are always ANYTHING GOES but you must use a stamp, digital or rubber.

I'm using the Holly Tree digital stamp and a sentiment from the Christmas Hugs set.

I love making shaker cards especially using my WRMK Fuse tool - so easy to make flat pockets so the cards are still easy to mail.  I colored the tree with Copic markers and used Jaded Blossom Stitched Circle dies and Scallop Circle dies for the frames.  I found this fun holly confetti at Michael's.

Head on over to the Challenge blog and enter our final challenge of the year.  You'll have until December 17th to enter.  Winners for this challenge will be announced along with our Guest Designer's post on December 31.

A Furry Christmas to You!

Hi Crafty Friends,

For my post today at Paper Crafting World, I'm using a cute print n cut file from the PCW store.

The is the Dog w Present n Santa Hat PNC file.
I printed and cut two images so that I could fussy cut one present and pop it up on the base image.  I added yellow Wink of Stella to the ribbon and bow and Puffy sparkly embossing powder to the hat along with a bit of Glossy Accents on the nose.
The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Christmas Tweetings which I stamped and heat embossed with white.  I also used Jaded Blossom's Flag Dies and Border Dies, then finished off with a button and twine bow.
Don't forget our November challenge - anything goes with a twist of RED (twist is optional).  You can find the challenge by clicking the badge on my sidebar.

Thanks for stopping by.

Holiday Treats

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today Design Team 2 designers at Digital Delights by Louby Loo are sharing their November Release projects.  This is a special release because not only do we have adorable characters but we also have buildings.  With this release, you could create a complete holiday village.

I've made a holiday treat box with my Baker House on one side and Caroling Slippy on the other.


The treat box was made using the Scallop Caddy Die from Jaded Blossom.  The candy cane is from JB's Christmas Dies.  I've added Doodlebug Designs Sprinkles and some baker twine bows to finish the box.  The images are colored using Copic markers.

Meowy Christmas

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's time for Clear It Out Challenge #98.  The challenge is to use white as your dominant color and anything goes for your stash item.
I've used a cute image from our sponsor, Sami Stamps, called Ornament Kitty.
To create my image frame, I used Jaded Blossom's Stitched Circles dies and Lawn Fawn's Stitched rectangles.  I traced inside the circle with a silver pen and added sequins.  The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Meow and Forever stamp set.  I colored with Copic markers and added silver Wink of Stella covered that with clear embossing powder which I heat set.

Clear it Out challenge #97

Hi Crafty Friends,

Our challenge this time is Halloween or Christmas and the stash item is a DIE CUT.
I'm using an image from our sponsor, SLS Lines, which is a Sugar Skull.

The Sugar Skull is not actually a Halloween image but rather one used during the celebration of 
Dia de Los Muertos which joyfully honors the dead.  To that end, I wanted to keep my design truer to that tradition rather than the Halloween colors and embellishments.

I used Spectrum Aquas to color the image and then covered it entirely with clear Wink of Stella.
The mat is the large Spellbinders Fleur de Lis die.  I used a gold Pilot Paint Marker to draw the borders on the card base and image mat and then added a prima flower.

You can join in this challenge by linking up to the Clear it Out challenge blog.

The sponsor for this challenge is
They are offering a prize of 3 digi stamps from their online store.
