This week at Die Cuts R Us it's a color challenge of chocolate brown, teal, and white or cream. We also were to stamp and color it using our favorite coloring medium. I missed last week so I was anxious to play along. I'm not much of a stamper but I had a Tim Holtz stamp that I had purchased last year right after Christmas and I thought it would look great with the colored paper I found. There wasn't alot to color however so I played around with some Distress Inks for a background (hope that counts) I also added some Perfect Pearls to add an iridescence that matched the patterned paper.
The snowflake frame is new from Spellbinders which I inked and added tiny snowflakes from the background paper. I embellished with cool fibers, beautiful ribbon, a clear glitter die cut snowflake and a vintage bell.
Cupcake Craft Challenges is celebrating their 1st birthday with a fabulous blog hop and a challenge to use something sweet on your card with an optional cupcake. How fortunate I received my giveaway prize from Die Cuts R Us of a Just Right stamp set with a cupcake center and alphabet so I could customize the sentiment just in time for this challenge. I colored the image with Copics, added stickles, and cut the frames with my Nesties.
I popped the layers and added punched corners and gems and some organdy ribbon and trim. I was so excited to participate in this challenge since I've been watching them since my dear frend Caryn became a DT member. Finally I finished my own DT obligations in time. Happy Birthday Cupcake Crafts Challenges!
