The prize this month is a $10 gift voucher!

Here is the material list for this card-
  1. Dies: holly square (Frantic Stamper), sentiment (Impression Obsession).
  2. Paper: Kraft, dark green, red, light green, white cardstock. Patterned paper (My Mind's Eye-Brown Paper Christmas).

Die Cut Diva's Winter Challenge


It's December at Die Cut Diva's, our challenge theme is "Winter", & our wonderful sponsor is-



And here is my project:


I was watching this tutorial by Jennifer McGuire and decided to try it, since I already had alcohol inks and Yupo. I had such fun I ran out of Yupo! Here are the materials I used for these cards-
  1. Dies: Joy and Seasons Greetings (Impression Obsession), ornament dies (Delicate Ornaments Thinlits-Stampin' Up, but these would work just as well), circles-backing ornaments (MFT stitched circles).
  2. Paper: gold, silver shimmer paper (Michaels), light teal cs, blue green cs, gold matte paper (stash).
  3. Ink: Turqoise, Patina, Mermaid, Pool, Stream, Gold, Silver (Ranger Alcohol Ink).
  4. Other: gold, silver glitter spray f(Krylon).
I ended up using too much alcohol, and color was rubbing off on me. I used the glitter spray lightly to seal the finished panels. I thought it added some more sparkle, which is always good on Christmas cards!

Thanks for visiting!

Challenge #315-Winter

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!



Challenge #315-Winter
Make a project about the winter (sports, snow, etc)!

This Weeks Sponsor



Dreaming Tree SVG's

The winner will receive a $20 Gift Certificate!

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.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

Here is my project-



inside-


Without tag inside-

 
Without sentiment-


This card is made from Crazy Cute Cards, from Cricut Access. I used lots of scraps (green, brown, white cardstock), along with light blue, medium blue, and blue green cardstock (Michael's), plus the holographic paper from Wal-Mart. I added some Crystal Stickles for some added interest on the globe front. On the inside, the chalet can be removed to show the beautiful mountains, and use the chalet as a Christmas tag. So this can be used two ways!

Make sure to make a winter project and enter for a chance to win a great Dreaming Tree prize!

Thanking you-digitally!

Time for a new challenge which is Thank You/Thankful, and none other than A2Z Scrapbooking is the Die Cut Divas' sponsor. 

The A2Z Scrapbooking store carries a wide variety of Hero Arts products! Get discounted new releases, sales, grab bags and more. Proceeds from the A2Z Scrapbooking store benefit Celiac and Behcets disease foundations.   If you’re looking for a Hero Arts product you don't see in store, use the Request Custom Order button from with-in the shop.

Here is my project-


This was made with an electronic cutting machine-my Cricut. It was so easy to import the Hello Sunshine digital file to Design Space and arrange the flowers, cut them in one pass, and have the card front done! The solid teal (sentiment), patterned cardstock, and paper bag shimmer spray paper are from my stash. I colored white ribbon with a Copic marker to make the teal bow.

Thanks for visiting!

Thank You Coffee Gift Card

Time for a new challenge which is Thank You/Thankful, and none other than A2Z Scrapbooking is the Die Cut Divas' sponsor. 

The A2Z Scrapbooking store carries a wide variety of Hero Arts products! Get discounted new releases, sales, grab bags and more. Proceeds from the A2Z Scrapbooking store benefit Celiac and Behcets disease foundations.   If you’re looking for a Hero Arts product you don't see in store, use the Request Custom Order button from with-in the shop.

Here is my project-


Isn't this fun? The coffee cup is from Bits & Pieces (Cricut Design Space), the Enjoy label is from Hero Arts Digital Caffeine Fix (A2Z Scrapbooking) which I used the print & cut feature on my Cricut to cut out. The stamps are Lawn Fawn (pull here), and the Thank you is from an unknown manufacturer (let's just say they are old, and before I knew to write that information down!), plus Versafine Onyx ink. The pull tab die is from Technique Tuesday (here is a You Tube video on how to use it). All paper is from my scrap stash, so I don't know where it came from!

I used Tombow repositionable adhesive to put the "pocket" on the card-when I pick up the coffee gift card I'll adhere it permanently.

Thanks for visiting!

I'm alos entering this at Cut it Up Thank You challenge.
