Die Cut Diva- Penguins

Thanks for joining me today-at Die Cut Diva's, the challenge is to make a project with snow, and here is a card I did-


The above picture is the outside. I used black cardstock to mat the red penguin paper (stash) and added a Spellbinders Lacy Oval with a Studio G sentiment and American Crafts ribbon on it to the front of a pop up card die from Elizabeth Crafts Design. And in the center-

I completed the penguin theme using the penguin die from Elizabeth Crafts Design. The blue cardstock (stash) was embossed with Anna Griffiths Cuttlebug embossing folder Snowflakes, and highlighted with white chalk ink. The igloo is from Cricut (Create a Critter cartridge), and the lights are from Jolee's. Sentiment is from Technique Tuesday.

I hope you enjoyed this card, and thanks for visiting!

Die Cut Diva's Snow Challenge

Welcome to Die Cut Diva's December challenge-and this month it is Snow! Here is my project-

I started off with an Elizabeth Craft Design circle accordion die, and embossed the frames with the Anna Griffith Snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder. I then used Impression Obsession snowflake dies and teal sequins to add at different places on the card. The teal and white circles were cut with my Spellbinders Circle dies. The stamps are from Inkadinkado and the ink is Martha Stewart mini pad collection.

Come join us at Die Cut Diva's, and remember to use a die cut and/or an embossing folder to be eligible for the prize.

Thanks for visiting!

FCCB Challenge #240-Anything but a Card

Welcome to another Challenge Me Monday...

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #240 Anything But a Card

This Weeks Sponsor

~This Weeks Challenge~
Create any project, that is not a card!

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.

I wish you could see this in person-it doesn't show the glitter spray like I wanted it to. But here is a list of what I used-
  1. I used 2 Dollar Tree wreaths for the candle ring. Believe me, there is no such thing as two equal sized wreaths! I put the smaller one inside the bigger one and wired them together with floral wire. I also sprayed Krylon green glitter all over, but it just wouldn't photograph. Darn.
  2. Made 5 roses from the Giant Flowers cartridge. Each rose fit on one 8.5" x 11" piece of cardstock. After assembling, they were sprayed with Krylon Silver Gitter for extra sparkle.
  3. Flourishes are from Home Decor cartridge, cut at 1 1/4" and 2 1/2" from scrap green cardstock.
  4. Snowflakes are Impression Obsession, silver Wausau shimmer paper.
  5. Candle holder is Mercury Glass.
Thanks for visiting today, and make a fun project to enter and win a wonderful prize!
