Fly Away Challenge

Happy Monday,

Today I have a shadowbox card that I created for the current Impression Obsession Challenge.  When I saw that IO's current challenge is Fly Away (anything that flies), I knew it was time to ink up my Hallotini (D2096) stamp that I got at StampFest in February.

After coloring the image, I added glossy accents to the 'drink' and Stickles around the rim of the glass.  I stamped a second bat and added it with a pop dot.  Actually, I stamped a few extra bats!  The bats & candy corn were colored with markers, the 'drink' with pencils, and the top border was created with the MS Drippy Goo punch.

Thanks for flying, oh, I mean stopping, by.

Two Challenges--One Pair of Shades!

Happy Tuesday!

I found a fun challenge by The Cat's Pajamas.  It is to make a card using a sunglass template that was provided in their posting on SCS.  

There is a new challenge blog, Cloud9, that will be posting a challenge on the 6th of each month in which you must use at least one WPlus9 image.  Their first challenge is an inspiration photo. 

So, here is my combined challenge sunglass card:

I sponged the beach scene, stamped the images, and added some highlights with the Sakura glitter pen.  The flip flops and little flower are popped up.

Supplies used:  Pumpkin Pie CS, OCL Life's a Beach, SU Tropical Party, &  WPlus9 Guiding Light stamp sets, and rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by.  I wish you a sunny and crafty day!

3D Christmas Tree Favor

Happy Sunday!

Today's project is for the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long Challenge #17, which is to make a party favor for a Christmas dinner.

Here is the front view of my 3D Christmas Tree favor:

And, a side view:

I scored three PP trees down the middle and attached them to each other.  The 3D trees were then attached to a CS tree and then to the box.  The back is one CS tree.  I placed a piece of tulle inside the favor box (2 1/2 W x 2 D x 1 1/2 H) along with some chocolates in a baggie.  The sentiment is attached with a pop dot to the top of the baggie.

Supplies used:  Bazzill Lagoon & GP White CS, CTMH Jingle PP, CTMH Juniper Ink, Spellbinders 2010 Holiday Tree Die, 1" & 1 1/4" Circle Punches, CTMH Bitty Sparkles, Crystal Stickles, and Flourishes Warm Winter Wishes Stamp Set.
