Biweekly Challenge 3--Christmas Project 2


Can you believe Christmas is only 2 weeks away? Yikes!
Hi everyone, it's Debbie (aka Indy) here today
to help you get ready for the upcoming festivities.
Our new biweekly challenge is...Christmas!
By playing along you not only get another 
holiday card (or project) done, 
you will have a chance to win some goodies!
To inspire you, I created a shaker card. 
(I'm totally loving this new trend!) I used papers from the 
Simple Stories DIY Christmas collection 
(Aren't those colors and patterns wonderful?)
as well as a sentiment sticker and brad!
I added some bling, and voila'--a fun, festive card!
Here's a closer look at the
Simple Stories DIY Christmas Collection




Paper--great patterns and colors!


Stickers


Coordinating embellishemnts

 Well, that's all I have today!
Happy Holidays to everyone!

Bi Weekly Challenge 2- Autumn Flowers


Hello everyone, Cathy here, and I am pleased to be here as a Design team member once again for Cuttin' & Stampin'.   We all took a little break, but are here now ready to create again and play with  lots of fun products.  We will be using :  Fancy Pants Burlap & Bouquets. 

The challenge starts 11/25 and runs till the next one starts

December 9th.  The challenges are going to run for 2 weeks..

 so with no further ado... here is my project for the Autumn Flowers challenge.


First I made a card using the burlap ribbon, I LOVE it.  I also embellished it with the chipboard feather and the adorable pockes and the adorable button that comes with the set.


I then used some of the extra pattern paper to make a gift envelope, and added a tag from the set. Love the flowers.


There were also chipboard flowers..


On the inside of the card I added the flower sticker in the corner to dress it up.



Here are some of the products i used which can be found at the Cuttin'& Stampin' Scrappy Supply store






SO, hope you like my projects and it inspires you to create your own..head over to the Cuttin' & Stampin Scrappy Supply store, get your craft on and enter the challenge here

Biweekly Challenge 2 Autumn Flowers - projects by Lynda

Hello....Lynda here to share with you a few projects I created using the fabulous supplies from the Cuttin' and Stampin' store for this challenge.  

I've used some of the following products on my projects: 


Fancy Pants Burlap & Bouquets collection. 


Buttons

For my first two cards I took some of the solid colored pattern paper and trimmed it to it fit onto my card base leaving a small border.  I then used some of the trimmed pieces to create a strip to go across the card front.  I then added the diecut floral accent to the front of each card.

in addition to the floral diecut, I added the feather diecut to this card:


for my next card I did the same process, but used a piece of the pattern paper:


For my final card I covered my entire card base with the pattern paper.  I then added a strip of a coordinating piece of pattern paper to the card front on the top.  I then added the burlap bow that I topped with the button (tied off with twine).  I tucked the diecut tag up and behind the bow and the card was coplete.



I hope you'll join in the fun and link up your Autumn flowers theme project to the blog post here.

Happy crafting....Lynda

Biweekly Challenge 2 - Autumn Flowers Project 1

Hi!  I'm Kim and I'm so happy to be back with The Cuttin' and Stampin' Design Team!  We've got many of the same talented ladies working with us, and I know you'll love all the fun projects we'll come up with for these upcoming bi-weekly challenges.
 

This week's challenge is Autumn Flowers. 
We were inspired by the Fancy Pants Burlap & Bouquets collection.

I fell in love with the impactful burlap bows, so it's the focal point of my project.  However, the theme for the challenge is Autumn Flowers.  Got that covered with both patterns of the Fancy Pants papers I chose from the 6x6 pad.  The flowers are small, but I think they add just the right touch!


If you take a close look at the burlap bows in the package (just scroll up a bit), you'll notice that my burlap bow looks slightly different.  I took a pair of scissors and gave it a little haircut.  I trimmed off a lot of the extra threads that were hanging over the edge.   I also puffed the bow up a little bit so it didn't look so flat.  It held the new shape very nicely!  The "Thank You" tag comes from this collection, also.   I chose to edge it with Clearsnap chalk ink in Chestnut Roan to give it a little distressing, and I added some burlap twine to finish it off.

I hope you'll join us in this challenge!   Please share with us your card with Autumn Flowers.

Happy Thanksgiving & Happy Stamping!
