Snow much fun!

Hello! This month at Die Cut Diva's the theme was Embossing (Wet or Dry), and we want to thank our wonderful sponsor-

And here is my project-

There is a new (to me) technique on this card-blending ink on vellum. After I blended the ink I used an embossing folder to add the snowflakes. Here is the list of materials:
  1. Image: snow girl (retired, The Stamping Boutique), colored with Copics.
  2. Dies: scalloped ovals (Spellbinders), banner (Labels & Such, Cuttlebug).
  3. Embossing Folder: snowflakes (Darice).
  4. Stamp: sentiment (Snowmies, Pretty Cute Stamps).
  5. Inks: sentiment (Versafine Onyx Ink), wilted violet, salty ocean, chipped sapphire distress inks (Tim Holtz).
  6. Embellishments: white sequins.
  7. Paper: vellum, white cardstock (Co-ordinations).
Thanks for visiting!

Challenge #287-Pumpkins

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #287-Pumpkins
Make a project about pumpkins!

This Weeks Sponsor

And we are giving away a $25 Amazon gift certificate, courtesy of FCCB Design Team! This prize will be given if there are 10 entries or more.

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

Here is my project:

This was a fun project to make through Cricut Access! Pumpkins to me mean Halloween. Here are the steps and supplies I used to make this Halloween shadowbox:
  1. Images: Cricut Access scene, cut at 11 1/2". Spider Border (Ribbons & Rosettes), Happy Halloween (Happy Hauntings). I used the border and sentiment to fill in the gaps I made when I cut apart the frame and lined it with orange cardstock.
  2. Shadowbox: painted black and bought at Michaels.
  3. Paper: shimmer papers (Wausau, DCWV, Recollections), black & bright orange cardstock (Recollections), yellow and orange cardstock (DCWV).
  4. Pop dots.
I'm trying to find some lights that can fit at the bottom of the shadow box (I pre-drilled a hole!). I think it would look really cool all lit up.

Thanks for visiting!
