Jess - you are here!!


Now for a bit about my project!

I used the Elizabeth Craft Designs - Lilac 2 to create this beautiful card! 
Elizabeth Craft Designs - Dies - Lilac 2

NOW, this card has exactly 100 double layered flowers on it - REALLY!  I know because I counted each and every one as I created!! I simply cut all the layers, then used a Liquid Glass product to combine the layers (I used tweezers).

  

Next, I stamped 100 onto a piece of cream cardstock using a purple ink. I used this as my template to adhere my flowers!



Next, I simply started attaching the flowers to fill  in the numbers!  Once the numbers were filled in, I added the leftovers to the edges to create a border. To finish off the flowers, I used a bit of Green Crystal Drops.





I think that this card fit the 100th Celebration perfectly!!!!

We can't wait to see what you create for this Special Occasion!  It can be any style you like from CAS to mixed media and everything in between.    Just be sure a die cut from any brand that Scrapy Land sells is included on your project.  Don't forget to Share this with your friends for additional chances to win one of the FABULOUS prizes.

Please remember to:
  • include at least one brand of die that Scrapy Land sells
  • include a link to this challenge on your blog post
  • use the InLinkz button to add your project
  • listing the brands of dies used on your project would be extremely helpful


You have until Nov 4 to join our Scrapy Land 100th Challenge Celebration.  This gives you an extra week of crafting time to upload your special Celebration projects below.

Your next stop is Tiphanie to leave a comment there as well, or to continue along on the hop until you have left comments for each of our Designers.


HAPPY CRAFTING and HAPPY HOPPING

Elf Boot with Cheapo Dies



Hello crafty people!


Happy Wednesday!  Wednesday is my day to share with you a new Cheapo Dies creation!



Today I decided to use the Elf Boot Home Die - it's just so darn cute!

Cheapo Dies - Elf Boot Home


 Here is what I created for you:



I cut out the diecut twice - once in red and once in green. I simply used the negative cuts to fill in the red so it accented all the sections!



I used Crystal Drops in Bright Gold and Red Berry to accent the card - I tried to make the gold look like little bells!


I hope you enjoy this card!!

 If you're not familiar with Cheapo Dies, you are missing out!!!
Here's a listing of their store, blog & FB links to help you get familiar:


Thanks to all of you for stopping by today.  Can't wait to see you again soon!

Sweet Baby Unicorn Banner

Hello friends!!



I have another cute project to share with you for SparkleNSprinkle!  This cute home decor banner features the Sweet Baby Unicorn Stamp Set and I can't wait to show you how I made it!

SNS Supply List:


Step 1 - Create your focal image!

I started by stamping the sweet little baby unicorn 3 times onto watercolor paper using Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with Black Detail Embossing Powder,  Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens were used to color the 3 unicorns. I fussy cut out all the unicorns and set them aside. You will notice that I don't have the little hearts surrounding the unicorn - that is because I doctored up my rubber! I simply cut the hearts off and left them as stand alone pieces!  Now I have extra hearts to use!!


      

Step 2 - Work on your BANNER PIECES

I used the Tonic Beautiful Bunting Jubilant Jubilee Die to cut out 3 gray pennants and 3 plaid interior pennants.  You will love how cleanly the dies cut! I also used the Tonic Mixed Edge Ovals die to cut a set of 3 pink scalloped ovals.


      

Step 3 - Sentiments

I stamped all 3 of the sentiments onto white cardstock using Versamark Ink and embossed with Rosa Embossing Powder. I used some pink cardstock to matte them - all adhered with 1/2" Tear-ific Tape of course!

    

Step 4 - Put It ALL Together and Embellish!

To embellish, I stamped the large heart image onto pink cardstock 3 times and fussy cut out. Using the Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive,  I added some Unicorn Glitter. I added some of the HAI Supply Silver Clear Flower Sequins using the Nuvo Deluxe adhesive. I added a few dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Bubble Gum Blush to each corner of the pennants and finally, a gray twine was added to hang the banner using 1/2 Tear-ific Tape!

    




There you have it!  A perfect baby shower decor item!  You could simply switch the colors to refllect your party theme!
