Welcome to the Sisterhood and a "NEW" challenge!

Today I'm sharing some exciting news....

I've been invited to be a team member of the "Sisterhood", The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge Blog.   Thank you Sisterhood!  Today, I'll be sharing my first project as a sister. 
Here's a little info about the challenges...

A new challenge is posted the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month.  Winners chosen by the sisters include our "Top Sister", "Top Three Sisters" and an occasional prize by random draw.  It's all about fun & fellowship with all types of creations accepted as entries.  Please NO copyright infringements when creating for this challenge. Visit The Sisterhood of Crafters Blog for guidelines and a list of future challenge themes located in the blog sidebar.

Our new challenge theme today is, "Newly Acquired Stash"!  Show us something new that fell in your shopping cart or arrived by Polar Express and tell us about it in your blog post. Link it up to the Sisterhood Challenge and we'll be stopping by to check it out.

I'm sharing this card made with a new die cut, Cozy Cup Coaster, from The Greetery.
 
"hugs"
 
I layered the coaster die in the background in both red velvet and textured white cardstock..  The die cut reminds me of a cozy blanket and with winter really surfacing this week here in our area, it worked well to create this wintery card.  I embellished with pine cones and branches topped with a red bow.  The "hugs" is cut and layered with dark and light kraft paper.  A red resin heart for a finishing touch!

Celebrate your love...

Welcome blogger buddies!

It's all about balloons for this challenge theme....every size, shape and color!  Check out the mood board and share your "balloon" inspired project with us.  You could be one of our top creative winners or the lucky person to win our prize chosen by random draw.  Check the Double D Challenge Blog for guidelines and challenge details. 

We have this wonderful mood board to inspire you...


Prize offered...

Elizabeth Crafts Designs Hot Air Balloons

My inspiration was the hot air balloons and the sentiment, "love is in the air".  I also used a sketch posted at CAS(E) this Sketch and a similar one on a crafty site I haunt.



Love this romantic, shabby chic card...

 "Celebrate"

This Piatek paper collection with vintage hot air balloons was the best choice in my stash for this challenge theme.  The romantic colors are favorites too.  I seem to be using this Celebrate die frequently!  The large Celebrate was left over from another project I did using the smaller version.  The rose gold color was perfect as the sentiment on this card which can be used as an engagement, wedding or anniversary.

Snow Much Fun!

We're just days into the new year and it's time for our first challenge of 2020 at Cut It Up!  And, it will be "Snow Much Fun"!  Yes, we are having fun with snow, snowmen and snow angels.   Come and play along with this fun challenge and link up your entry to the current challenge post in the Cut It Up Blog.  You could be a prize winner.  See the blog for details and guidelines.

Here's my "Snow Much Fun" inspiration using the Snowman Family Card Set from the Cutting Café.
 
we love you SNOW much.
 
I created a dimensional stand up card for my faceless snow angel family.  Their golden wings are created from 3 different gold textured papers.  I've added a couple of doilies and snowflakes as matting along with a snowflake border across the front.  The sentiment is printed on the bottom half of the shovel.  I replaced the shovel handle with a heart to hold the sentiment in place.


 Here you can see the dimension that the special fold card creates.
