I made this card for an inspiration challenge at the Crafter's Cafe. you can find the challenge here http://thestampingboutique.ning.com/forum/topics/inspired-by-challenge-ends-january-4th  You find a card that inspires in the gallery on the Cafe and then make a card and tell what inspired you about the card. I found one by Cheryl Gorka. I loved the sentiment, the soft colors of coral and green she used and the butter on it. There were many colors and elements on her card it is well worth seeing. You can see her card here http://thestampingboutique.ning.com/photo/happiness-is-a-butterfly?context=latest or on her blog here http://shestamps.blogspot.com/2012/08/happiness-is-butterfly.html

The frame is cut from Cricut cartridge Elegant Edges.

The butterflies are punched out using a Martha Steward punch. I then inked the edges with Copic R22.

The pearls are by Want 2 scrap. Le Creme is the color.

The ribbon is by Really Reasonable Ribbon. It is part of the March club.

Happiness is...  Being loved by family and friends, flowers, butterflies, crafting, all the simple pleasures of life. i hope you have a very Happy day. Edwina

Some of the trees, snow, animals, and gifts are pop dotted up.

The gifts are just randomly cut by hand from DCWV shimmer metallic papers.

The snowflakes are punched out using 2 sizes of Recollections punches.

The journaling is drawn using a blue metallic Gelly Roll pen.

The snow is cut out without a pattern using DCWV shimmer paper- pastels. I used glitter glue on the edges of the snowon the ground and trees. .

Other papers are by Recollections- light and medium blue, Georgia Pacific- white.

The sentiment is typed on the computer and printed off. The font is Edwardian Script.

I hope you have a peaceful holiday season. Edwina

Robyn's fetish Challenge # 136 Tic Tac Toe





   Hello Today at Robyn's Fetish Challenges our challenge is to use the Tic Tac Toe chart to make a card. I chose red and green, diecut or punched Christmas shape, and glitter. Our Sponsor for this challenge is Dis Digi Downloads. The winner of our challenge gets a $10 voucher to Dis Digi Downloads store. Here is the link to her store http://disdigidownloads.blogspot.com/

   I used Cricut cartridge Christmas to make the window, candle, and tree. Window- row5 button 1  cut at 5.5", tree- row 3 button 2 cut at 4", Candle- row 4 button 8 cut at 1". The snowflakes are from 2 different Recollections punches.

  Glitter is on the candle flame, center of snowflakes, and the red dots-ornaments on the tree. I used Studio g glitter glue.

  The papers are by recollections- reds, greens, browns, blue, TPC Studios- print, DCWV- white shimmer paper for the snow.

  The lace for the valance is by Offray.

   The window is the Acetate plastic cover from a Cricut cartridge package. I cut the acetate to fit my window. used a glue runner to attach it to my window frame. Then I glued down the snow on the outside turned it over and glued down the the candle stick and under the snow. I did not put glue on the candle as I did not want it to show.
 
  I used pop stripes from Making Memories to pop up the window. I placed the stripes all around the outside edges and down the middle and top bar where the curtain would be.After removing the backing from the stripes I placed the lace on the top bar piece. Then I placed the tree against the strips to hold it in place. Add adhesive to the back of the tree. Next cut the wall paper to 3" x 5 1/4" it will stick to the window. Trim off the curved edges at the top of the window. Now glue your window to the card. Add snowflakes to the scene. Then place a dot of glitter glue in the center of each.

   Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a Warm and Happy Holiday. Edwina
