has a challenge for you to pick a side, are you a good witch or a bad witch as the theme... my guess is the bluntness of what comes out of my mouth some times makes me swing towards both sides of the fence. The witch shoes are from whipper snapper and the sentiment is from dylusions.
Rebecca has a challenge to use some metal in a Milagros kind of a theme so, I decided to start with the heart and I cut it, embossed the stitching then covered it with foil tape. So, I knew I had some ken oliver liquid metals so I daubed some on, they wiped right off, then I tried some adirondack alcohol inks, also wiped right off. then I grabbed a jar of bo bunny copper glitter paste. ( ah ha success the glue decided to stick) The background is an polished stone from AI on glossy card and the sentiments are die cuts from SSS & HA.
has a challenge to use blended colors of fall. with an landscape inspiration mug shot near her home. So, I grabbed these Hero Arts trees and the Oct. snowglobe set ( the deer and birds) and about 10 inkpads for this. ( the list is on the gallery upload if your curious)
second challenge is to do a Kraft one layer card with white heat embossing on it. ( what ever you want) so, it looked so neekid when I was done that I ended up tying on a ribbon across the top and adding some clear wink of stella to the leaves.
card drive challenge to do a pet holiday thank you card for the humane society in MN. so this kitty is from Penny Black ( colored with some zig and distress markers) and the sentiment is out of my previously made stash so, I forgot)
second challenge is to be inspired by apple crisp. ( colors images etc) so, I dug out this really old PSX stamp and colored it with some prisma pencils.
Kathy's challenge is to Create a "blue" Christmas card. So, this image is an (old retired) one from Elyzbells in the UK size that was heat embossed with white on some blue shimmery stardream cardstock, the shadows were done with a Ranger picket fence marker and the tree, scarf and star were done with glitter pens. I did then go over all the exposed blue in the scene with a clear wink of stella pen. This also was tweaked to suit the Dirty Dozen Oct. Christmas card challenge seen here.
has a challenge to use new stamps in a new way or old stamps in an unexpected way. I think this reindeer you expect to read something sweet for the sentiment because it is cute, so having the reindeer steal an elf's hat and have a bratty sentiment is maybe a little unexpected ( maybe not by me because, I do lean snarky with things but, maybe it would have been unexpected from someone really sweet right?) The reindeer is from the clearly besotted time to prance set, the hello is from My Favorite things label maker and the behave is from Dylusions. That hat is a memory box die from a set called holiday hats.
has a challenge called snow much glitter to create a hoar frost filled scene. so I used this Penny Black Snowy Park image and used some majestic blue to give it that frozen feel right off the bat and then daubed some crystal stickles all over. ( the paler blue is the catchlights on the glitter glue) so, it was shot wet on an easel. This sentiment is from the clearly besotted set called time to prance.
card drive challenge that is for children ( 2-18) that have lost a parent. featuring bright colors and stars. This was hard for me, I hardly ever make kid cards and use bright colors. so, these stars are from Unity stamps and the sentiment is from Wplus9.
This leaves me with 3 more challenge cards to finish. So, having this week as a "catch up" time is going to be a really handy thing for me, because I would like to complete them all. Mainly to support the hostesses who have put this together. I don't know if I will finish the other 5 tutorials, I am thinking about a couple of them still in my head and we will see.
