Pearly Sparkles March Challenge ~ Celebrate

Hi Crafty Friends,

Our new challenge for March is CELEBRATE.  Oh so many ways to interpret this theme!
You can join our challenge by uploading your project to the Pearly Sparkles blog HERE.

I'm sharing my project which was made for a very special 18th birthday celebration.

For this card I used Jaded Blossom's Gnome Dies and Build a Booth dies.  I also added dies from Spellbinders.  

I hope you'll play along.  Playing along with blog challenges is such a great way to share you creativity with fellow crafters.

Cut it Up Challenge #297 ~ Have a Heart

Hi Crafty Friends,

Here's our first challenge for February at Cut it Up Challenge Blog.

Our theme is Have a Heart.  It's open to your interpretation.

Here's my card.

The front of this card is the stacked hearts (Jaded Blossom) on an A2 card base that has been cut in half on the front.  There is a piece of acetate that the lower part of the hearts and the sentiment (Betterpress) are attached to.  The background is a Pinkfresh stencil adhered to the inside of the card base.
It's a fun technique and a little different from attaching the focal image to a background and then the entire thing placed on the card base.

I hope you'll play along with us a Cut it Up.  Be sure to check our Facebook Community page to see which entries won Top Cut for our last challenge.

Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers ~ Sketch 42, February Challenge

Hi Crafty Friends,

We have a new sketch challenge on the Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers
Facebook page.  You'll find the sketch below.  The challenge is open for the entire month.  You may visit the BLOG and the Facebook page for inspiration and then upload your challenge project HERE.

Here's my first design team project.

I used a Betterpress plate for the background, blue ink on white watercolor paper, and then the Glimmer foil system for the sentiment.  So easy with the right tools/systems, yet it looks so elegant.

Here's the challenge sketch for your inspiration.

I hope you'll play along with us this month.
