Pearly Sparkles January 2023 Challenge ~ No Patterned or Designer Paper

Hi Crafty Friends,


We are beginning the new year with a new challenge at Pearly Sparkles ~ create a project without patterned/designer paper(s).

You have until the 28th to link up your project.  

Here's my design:

I just love using silver and/or gold with white card stock.  I gift a box of handmade cards to a dear friend every Christmas and include birthday, thank you, and hello cards for her to use.
I love the way these turned out.  They made a nice addition to her box of cards.
The card mat die is from Avery Elle, the sentiment stamp and outline die is from Jaded Blossom, and the presents dies are from La-La Land Crafts.

We look forward to seeing your projects.

Cut it Up Challenge #268 ~ New Year

Hi Crafty Friends,

Welcome to the final Cut it Up challenge of 2022.

For this final challenge, we are celebrating the New Year.
The Cutting Cafe is our last sponsor since we are changing the challenge format in the new year and will no longer have sponsors for each challenge, just a Top 3 with an invitation to be a guest designer.

The Cutting Cafe provided the card base outline in PDF format.  I added die cuts from Jaded Blossom's Gnome Dies: New Year Add Ons set.

I hope you'll play along with this challenge and continue to support our challenge blog in the new year.

There will be two prizes for this challenge: your choice of 3 sets from The Cutting Cafe and this amazing crafty set of goodies offered by DT member Leslie.

Wishing you a wonderful beginning to the NEW YEAR!

I have another cute project using the clipart from Last Mnute Manda.
This cutie and sentiment is from the It's Snow Time set.

All of Manda's clipart can be found in her ETSY shop HERE.

The background paper is from Authentique.  The snowy hills and flag die is from La-La Land Crafts.  I cut the image out using a Scan N Cut and, finally, added some crystals.

Thanks for stopping by,

Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers ~ Second December Sketch #29,

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I'm sharing another card I made using December's Sketch #29.
For this card I used papers and a sticker from Echo Park's Gnome Christmas paper set.

I attached the gnome sticker to a die cut from Jaded Blossom's
Label Shape Dies 1.  I used two 5 x3.75 pieces of patterned papers cut on the diagonal to have the right shapes to adhere to a 4x5.25 card mat.

Here's the sketch for you to follow:
Be sure to link up to our Facebook album so we can all enjoy your creation.

Cut it Up Challenge #267 ~ Christmas Projects

Hi Crafty Friends,

Time for our second to last Cut it Up Challenge for 2022.  For challenge #267 we are sharing 
Christmas Projects.

I'm finishing up my Christmas projects for the year and decided to add a few gift tags to the mix.
I received a stamp set and die set from Pink & Main as a blog hop prize and they are perfect for this challenge.  Also, Pink & Main is our challenge sponsor so it worked out perfectly.

Here are my tags.

I also used Jaded Blossom's Bread Tag Dies and Doodlebug Designs patterned papers.
The images were colored using Copic Markers.

I hope you'll play along.  Just link your project to the CIU BLOG.

Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers ~ December Sketch Challenge #29

Hi Crafty Friends,

The December Sketch is up on the {BYSH}Cardmakers Facebook Group.
It's a really fun sketch with so many possibilities.  Just right for your dash to your 2022 Christmas cards deadline.

Here's my first project.
I love white on white and the pops of gold just make it special.  The panels were created by running LaLa Land Crafts' It's Snowing stencil through the Cuttlebug.  The dimensional die cut is Spellbinders Reindeer Prance Layering set popped over the stitched frame from Jaded Blossom's Triangle Card Mat.  I actually cut off 4 of the interior stitched lines in order to follow the sketch.

We hope you'll play along with us this month.  Just upload your project to the album for Sketch 28.

Here's the sketch for inspiration:
I'll be back with a second project later this month.

Cut it Up Challenge #266 ~ Winter

Hi Crafty Friends,

We're up to Challenge #266!  Our theme is "Winter" and we're being sponsored by
Oddball Art Co. which provided the image I used for this card.

The image is colored with Copic Markers.  I chose papers from LaLa Land Crafts Winter sample pack.
The sentiment and die cuts are from Jaded Blossom.

I hope you'll join us and play along at Cut it Up Challenge Blog.
Don't forget to use a die cut on your project.

We're making some changes in the new year.  I will become to new administrator for the 
Cut it Up Challenge Blog.
Beginning with the first January challenge, we will no longer have sponsors, just challenge THEMES.
We're hoping that our challenges will interest you enough to play along and share your crafty ideas with the crafting community.

There will be an occasional prize package, just to keep things fun.
Be on the lookout for a Design Team Call in January.  We'd like to expand our team.

We'll have one more sponsored challenge before the changes take place.
