Challenges


My daughter and her husband have blessed our lives with four happy, healthy, and very busy little grandsons, and when I saw this new Quietfire Design stamp, I just had to do a card to send along. I know this will give their parents a chuckle.

It was designed to fit several challenges too: Arty Girlz (where the challenge this week is to use quotes), Wednesday Stamper (where the challenge is snowflakes), Created by Hand (where the challenge is Christmas tags...I incorporated mine into a card again), and the weekly Cuttlebug challenge, where we're to use crayon resist. I'm not sure whether you can even see my resist, but it's on the snowflake Cuttlebug embossed layer, with light blue crayon, then oversprayed with very light blue Ecoline ink mixed with Winsor and Newton Iridescent Medium. I punched the snowflakes from blue velvet paper, then applied double sided tape to the reverse of the punched areas, and sprinkled Martha Stewart blue glitter over the tape. I used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Two dies to cut and emboss each layer, and the Stampin' Up scallop punch for the border.

Thank you so much for visiting today!

Thank you for playing with our CB challenge and your card is stunning! I totally know what you mean by the picture not doing justice to the background, it is so hard, but I can see a little bit....and it is lovely.
