Howdy friends and Happy 2011! Can you believe it? 2011!! I am ready to get back to 'normal' and into the usual routine - so how about starting off your 2011 with a challenge from Fantabulous Cricut!!! Yea - we are back with lots of fun!
The challenge this week is titled Snowy Delights. Please create a project that incorporates snow or snowflakes - and as always, you need a Cricut cut somewhere on your project!
Its been rather warm here so I don't have a lot of inspiration for snow - but a girl can wish, huh? So, I used a stamp phrase "Let It Snow" - maybe someday soon it will! Here is my project this week:
Don'tcha just love blue and purple for winter? I cut the large snowflake in purple paper using Designer's Calendar, then heat embossed Distress Powders in Milled Lavendar for texture. I cut out a jar with a Paper Trey Ink die, then stamped snowflakes hanging inside the jar, adhered rhinestones and stickles. Stamp sentiment, tie bow, send to a friend!
TIP: Using clear rhinestones, you can color them with markers to match your projects! Let it dry and then use. No more buying every single color - only to run out of what you need!! I used Copic Markers with this project, but I've used other markers too - use what you have!
