Weekly Challenge #46 - Tuesday

Challenge:  Anything Goes with Numbers 
November 19th - 25th, 2013

We are celebrating Numbers this week. All of our design team members will be creating projects using the Bazzill Basic Paper Countdown to Christmas collection and the Paper Smooches Digits stamp set.  

My Christmas card uses the Digits stamp set from Paper Smooches, in addition to the Alphadot stamp set.  I created the green part of the tree using the Paper Smooches Clouds die set, and the brown trunk using the Trees 1 die set.  After cutting the three green cloud shapes, I inked the edges to create depth, assembled the tree, and embellished with gems. 

Another trick I used on this card is embossing the sentiment.  Because the cardstock was textured, it was difficult to get a nice, solid black stamped image.  However, with the embossing powder, it leveled off as it melted, creating a much more solid and impactful image.

So let's see what you can do with numbers, folks!  Bring out number stamps, number dies, or whatever works for you.   We can't wait to see your cards, scrapbook pages, or even a 3D project with a lot of numbers like an Advent calendar!

Thanks for playing along!  We will be announcing the winners on November 29, 2013.
