Wild Orchid Crafts–Lovely Lavender Challenge

So…there’s a challenge right up my alley, right? I was pretty excited about this one! :)
For my card, I cut the card base and image frame on my Silhouette, along with the snowflakes too. The image is the very sweet Heidi from Wee Stamps. P1060720

To give the flowers, snowflakes and reindeer a wintery feel, I added lots of Gesso and Frantage.
Thank so very much for looking and I can’t wait to see your Lovely Lavender projects over at the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge Blog!

KKS World cardmaking Day–Challenge 1

Hello there!
It’s Sheri here and I want to thank you for joining me today, while I kick off the first challenge for KKS World Card Making Day and Birthday Party!
I know it’s still early for a lot of you, so I going to keep this one simple. The first challenge is to Make it Blingy! Easy, right? For my card, I chose to play with one of my favorite KK Stamps, Moaning Moria. Funny, …I look just like her in the morning before my coffee. 
S
The bling on my card today is Frantage by Stampendous.  It’s kind of a chunky embossing powder, filled with glitter and has different elements mixed in.  I added it all around the stamped image, and one of my favorite things to do with it, is to apply it to my embellishments.  To do this, just dab Versamark onto your embellishments and sprinkle it with the embossing powder. Next use a heat gun to make the magic happen.
Now, be sure to head over to the KKS Facebook Fan Page to play along with more challenges,  hang out with the Krafty Girls and have some chances to win some fun stuff from the incredibly generous Kimmie!
