Who love challenges? Today, I did a sketch and color challenge combo. Challenges always help getting my creative Mojo flowing at the beginning of the week. Curtain Call has a very unique color challenge this week and I just had to give these colors a try. I couldn’t believe how good they turned out! I guess it really goes to show, you never know until you try it!! Haha!
I posted my new Christmas Blog Banner! I made it using My Digital Studio and all the new Christmas digital downloads. I have so much fun making these! Let me know what you think. I love hearing from you. 🙂
Stay tune for tomorrow, I have two posts for you. Have a great day!!!
Inspired by Stampin’ Tips:
- Two stamp sets today that I used for my card are Printed Pieces and Party This Way. I stamped the flower in tempting turquoise and then sniped it out with my super sharp paper snipes.
- TIP: Whenever I purchase a new bigz dies, I write with a Sharpie marker the size of the circle or square on the front of the die next to the name. This helps so much because I automatically know what size I just made. I then can go directly to the next step which is layering my cardstock. I usually layer all my cardstock 1/4” smaller.
- Circle Scissor Plus gave me this awesome perfect circle.
- Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder created this gorgeous lattice and was layered using Cajun Craze and Basic Grey Cardstock.
- For a crumpled effect, try using your fingernail to bring the edges up slightly. It works beautifully with the bone folder also.
- Basic Glimmer Brads and Rhinestones help finish off this Happy Birthday Card.
