More challenges...four challenges!


So, you know how much I enjoy combining challenges to see what the end result will be. This time, I combined four of them: the current Cuttlebug challenge is “Love;” the current TGIF challenge is “green;” the current Crazy Amigo challenge is “shoes;” the current Created by Hand challenge is “Love Quotes.” So I saw all these, and thought “Hmmm, how can I match SHOES to LOVE?” Then I went through my ever-increasing stash of Quietfire Design sentiment stamps, and this idea was born. It was such FUN! The shoe is a paper pieced pattern and both shoe stamps are from Impression Obsession. The pattern on the shoe is the swirl background stamp from Impression Obsession, and the shoe decoration is a paisley stamp (also from IO). I glittered a bit…a girl has to have bling(lol). I really like how the Cuttlebug embossing folder picks up the pattern on the shoe...a happy coincidence. Thanks so much for stopping by today.

I love the card but couldn't tell if the shoe was a stamp or a dye cut. Could you indicate? And what company is it from please? I looked on both the Quietfire and Impression Obsession sites and couldn't find it on either. I would love to make my shoe-loving daughter a card like this! ML in San Diego
