For The Digi Bistro This to That Challenge click here
I am on a roll and wanted to share this card with you today because I am pretty proud of it!
I so love the way it turned out that I am thinking of making another so I can keep one :) I am hoping that I have enough scraps to do that!!
I am already trying to get a jump start on my chrismas cards and since I usually send out anywhere between 60-100 I have my work cut out for me. I think I have 15 done so far....almost a quarter of the way there! Good thing I have 2 months to work on them :)
This card was put together originally for The Paper Players and during my blog hopping I found several more challenges that this card fit.
Carley from The Real iCarley is our blog host for this week and all the details for this weeks challenge can be found over on her adorable blog! Make sure you head over there (after looking at my card) for all the details, the other DT's projects and to link up your project.
This weeks challenge is Flowers and Bling
The DT are all using flowers from The Digi Bistro and Cher has a whole bunch of adorable flowers to choose from.
Our card could be for any occasion~birthday, fall, thank you....anything
we had to add some bling AND make our flower 3D.
Here is what I came up with.
I wanted to design a CAS card to showcase the flower.
I used the Simply Tweet set
and cut the flower out at 4".
I then broke the flower apart and cut 8 more petals to use for the 3D flower.
Here's a closeup of the flower.
I used white cardstock, sprayed it with silver and purple glimmer mist (my Bling) as well as inked the edges with purple ink.
The petals are held together with a purple glittery brad (also my Bling)
This is the video I used to make my flower. Love the way it came out :)
So I hope you like my card and will play along with us this week.
Remember you do not have to
~use a file from The Digi Bistro
~cards can be combined with stamps or die cuts
~if you dont own any 3D flowers consider purchasing a file from The Digi Bistro
I know you will love all Cher's files~ I know I do :)
I am so excited to be joining this wonderfully creative bunch of crafter's as one of the Guest Designers for the month of September.
If you came from Jodi's blog then you are on the right track...if you want to start from the beginning head over to Craft Your Passion. You will not want to miss any of the amazing projects we have to share with you.
All Craft Your Passion DT members are going to be playing along in the hop with some very special guest designers.
Each designer along the way is featuring a project that showcases a digital image from at least one of our amazing Blog Hop Sponsors.
What’s more exciting is you can participate too by creating a project and linking it up over at Craft Your Passion Challenges for a chance to win one of several prizes.
But, there’s a twist. Be sure to visit all the stops and leave a comment. Once you have finished the hop we would like you to create a project using at least one digital stamp and enter it with our Linky tool.
While you are hopping, be sure to check out the blog candy the designer's have to offer you. You don't want to miss out on any of it!
For this hop I have 2 projects to share with you.
The first is my very 1st Paper Bag Mini Album!
I have to say these are so much fun to make and I can not wait till I have some more time to further embellish it.
