Witch Boot for 3D Challenge at The Paper Cabana

20121010-094906.jpg

I think this Witch Boot by Snapdragon Snippets is adorable, but it is a bit of a challenge to assemble. I am not the most patient person, and this file requires boatloads! I am happy I stuck with it, the end result was worth it. If you want to tackle this project, I suggest using a little tape over the glued tabs, especially in the toe and curved areas.

Isn’t this Witch Hat Treat Box adorable!  I love that it is actually a little box, useful and so cute!  It is from the new SVG cuts set Gimme Candy, which was released last night.  The set is free with purchase until next Thursday.  The hat box was so easy and went together very quickly.  I cut a second hat, cut the panels apart and embossed them to add a little dimension.  I also inked the embossed panels with Whisper White.  This was a quick project, but so much fun!  I will definitely be making more of these!

Today’s challenge at The Paper Cabana is an Inspiration Challenge: Bright Wishes Kanzashi Studio.  While browsing on Etsy one day, I ran across this little shop that carries the prettiest fabric hair clips.  I loved all the beautiful flowers, colors and fabrics used to make these handmade hair ornaments.  The hand-dyed silks are my favorite, the colors and shading are just exquisite.  I chose this Summer Goldfish Hair Clip as the inspiration for my card.  I just love the beautiful shading on the goldfish!

I snuck another card in today between laundry and watching the Olympics.  This was a fun one to make, but a bear to photograph! Sorry for the glare, but I used Glossy cardstock and it was too dark to photograph without the flash.  This one was for the Dare to Get Dirty Challenge #2 and Apron Strings Pinterest Challenge #19.  Here is the Apron Strings Inspiration Photo:

I hve a fun technique for you today, the Splitcoaststampers Wednesday Tutorial – Distressed Watercolor Dry Embossing.   This card was made for the Apron Strings Pinterest Challenge #17.  Here is the challenge photo:

Pinterest Challenge #17

The colors reminded me of the beach, so I decided to use the Spellbinders Sea Beauty M-Bossabilities Folder because it gave me a good base for the Distressed Watercolor Dry Embossing Technique.  I used the PSX Serenity Prayer stamp and added the shell accents with Crystal Effects.

Wow, today’s Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge was a challenge with a capital C!  CC385 Real Wonder IslandReal Red, Wisteria Wonder and Island Indigo was a real doozy!  The dessert option was a summer garden, but I just wasn’t seeing it.  As a matter of fact, these colors said winter to me.  They reminded me of a scarf set my son had when he was a toddler, so I went with that theme.  For my card, I used mittens and scarf by Lettering Delights and a Cuttlebug Embossing folder.  The sentiment is part of a stamp by Hero Arts.

My friend Bexx from the 100 in 100 Card Challenge and our new Card-a-Day Blog Group told us about a fun Pinterest Challenge on Apron Strings Designs, so I decided to play along with Pinterest Challenge #15 this week.  Here is the inspiration photo:

Pinterest Challenge #15 Inspiration Photo

I am also submitting this for The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge #6:  Christmas in July – Non-Traditional Colors, Stampin with the Dragon Christmas in July Challenge, and Creatalicious Challenges:  Christmas in July.  The photo reminded me of the Tinsel Christmas Tree we had when I was growing up.  One year , my mom decorated the whole tree in pink, white and silver ornaments.  And that reminded me of the little translucent bubbles that were all the rage a few years back.  I still have several colors of them in jars on my shelf, so I grabbed the pink ones and went to work.  At first I was going to use Stampin’ Up! Snow Swirled for my tree, but then I remembered the Memory Box Winterland Tree Die and decided to try that instead.  I used Stampin’ Up! Brushed Silver for the tree, glued it to a piece of Stampin’ Up! Shimmery White Cardstock, matted in Brushed Silver and used glue dots to adhere the bubble ornaments.  I embossed a piece of Blushing Bride for the background and sponged it with Raspberry Ripple. I stamped the sentiment in Raspberry Ripple, punched with the Stampin’ Up! Lg Oval Punch and matted with the Stampin’ Up! Scallop Oval punched in Raspberry Ripple.  I mounted the sentiment on a piece of Stampin’ Up! Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon and attached it all to the Raspberry Ripple card base.  I think it is a pretty good representation of that old tinsel tree!

Today I have a sneak peek for you!  This is a new set from Stampin’ Up!, Snowflake Soiree.  This set is in the new Holiday Catalog, available for order on August 1st.  I don’t think I’ve mentioned before that I am an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  If you are interested in this or any other Stampin’ Up! products, please email me at InkyPalms.com.

For my card, I used today’s Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge SC393 and yesterday’s Color Challenge CC383 Raspberry Ripple, Pink Pirouette and Crumb Cake.  I had to substitute Kraft for the Crumb Cake, still catching up on the new colors, but I love the color combo!  I stamped the Pink Pirouette background panel with the smallest snowflake in Raspberry Ripple and mounted on a Kraft card base.  For the Raspberry Ripple triangle panel, I stamped one of the larger snowflakes and the smaller one in Versamark, embossed with white embossing powder and added Dazzling Diamonds.  Unfortunately, the Dazzling Diamonds does not photograph well, but it is really lovely.  I stamped the sentiment in Raspberry Ripple on Pink Pirouette and double matted in Raspberry Ripple and Kraft.  I added a Raspberry, pink and clear rhinestone with glue dots.  What do you think?
