Blog Candy!

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Today is the sketch challenge at the Paper Craft Crew Challenges Blog.

Here is the sketch for this week:

Here is my take on the sketch:

The JOY is from the Joyous Celebrations stamp set #128066 $22.95 or #128069 $15.95. To create the little banner I just inked each letter individually and then punched it out using the Petite Pennants Builder Punch #122361 $16.95. I punched a hole using 1/16″ hole punch and then ran my Whisper White Baker’s Twine thru the holes making the banner.

The Silver Glimmer snowflake is made using the Snow Flurry Bigz Die #127813 $21.95 and the Big Shot. The center is a little button from the Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons #127555 $5.95 with a jewel in the center.

The colors are baja breeze, whisper white and the DSP is from the Snow Festival pack #126908 $10.95.

The bow is the Whisper White Organza Ribbon #114319 $5.95. I used the Double “D” Bow Maker to create my bow.

Here is a close up of the snowflake and the bow:

    Gorgeous card – I’m loving the new snowflake die! Great idea to stamp the ‘joy’ letters seperately; I’ll have to remember that one.
    The blog hop is terrific; everyone’s creations are so beautiful.

    Love this Glenda. Love the snowflake die. Just joined the PCC site as well to take part in the challenges.

  11. Andrea S. says:

    I have the hardest time trying to make a bow turn out right! I have gone back to your video on how to do it a couple of times and mine just still don’t turn out. I know something that would make it a whole lot easier 😉

  12. Debby says:

    Wow, love yours and the colors you used. I don’t have the MDS so would also have to do it like you did.

  15. Sandi Dailey says:

    Oh my gosh, love what you did with this layout!! I’ve been looking for some ideas to use my snowflake die with and this is just what I was looking for — something different!! And you have no idea how much I would love to win the bow maker — if anybody needed help making bows, it would be me!!
