Use A Die

Hello and just a quick post to share with you the new challenge we have over at Holly Jolly.

 

Our challenge theme is “Use A Die”

 

I love dies so this is a great challenge and we have some great sponsors too including Di’s Digis and I have used one of their images for the challenge.

 

I have also used a few Dies including dies from the SU Ovals Collection and Marianne Designs Large Petra Oval Collection.

 

Here is my card:

The wonderful sentiment is from the Embellishment Ornaments stamp set.  I have added some Liquid Pearls around the image to create the snow effect and the papers are from some Christmas paper I had by Couture Creations.

Back to School

Hello once more, hope you are well.

 

Time to share with you my creation for our new challenge at Crafty Creations which is
Back to School but with a Twist

 

Go Back to School to use a new technique that you have never tried.

 

Like you, I know I have found so many different techniques that I have either printed, saved or now Pinned to try later.  So to pick one was a challenge but in the end I decided on this Starburst Technique.

 

I found a great tutorial at Nancy Kellers blog and here is the link to Nancy’s Tutorial.

 

 

The paper used is SU Painted Blooms DSP and the cardstock is Rose Red, Wild Wasabi, Sahara Sand and Whisper White.

 

Here is my card:

 

ccc school

 

The sentiment is from the Kaisercraft Oh So Lovely Clear Stamp set and has been stamped in Rose Red ink and cut out.

 

The flowers are from my stash and so is the SU Rhinestones.

 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
