Wednesday Challenge

I was able to make a project for the Wednesday Challenge over at ISS. The prize is a digi of your choice. :)

I love the colors this challenge and decided to participate. What do I have to lose since I can't really win lol.

I decided to use Mayah from our October Club Anime exclusive images. Hope you like it! I'm learning how to color different skin types with Copics. I think it's a little too dark...but my sister liked it. Oh well you get my drift!

Close up of the fabric top note:

Isn't the ribbon yummy? It's this double sided suede. Very expensive but makes the point beautifully. I love my bling lol. Sorry the image picture didn't come out that great. Looks way better in person. :)

For the top note (as you can see I'm on a kick right now) I used Strano's Ribbon stiffer on the fabric to give it a little bit of stiffness but not much. After it dried I grabbed the cuttlebug and ran embossed it and then I ran it through the big shot. The edges came out beautifully. And they won't fray because of the stiffner.

Tomorrow I hear ISS is having a huge sale. Be sure to check them out. And then come back on Friday for my blog candy! You will be happy you did.

First project for my new blog!!!

Thanks for stopping by...:)

I decided to start a blog separate from the company blog . I like the idea of being able to link and participate in all the challenges when I can and not interfere with the day to day business aspect of a company blog. Awh... makes me feel like a real design team member ha ha.

For my first project, I decided to try out a quilt block, top note card. It was simpler to do than I thought. I got the idea from my old upline when I was a *gasp* Stampin Up! demo lol. How cute is that card. Here is my version:

And a close-up of the blocking:

It was so simple to make it's not even funny. Simply cut a piece of white cardstock 5 x 3 3/4. Cut your patterned paper you will be using in 1 1/4 squares. Adhere them to the white cardstock in the order you'd like and run it through your big shot. It's that easy.

I was addicted and made a ton of them. Great way to get rid of your scraps too. For this one I decided to turn it into a thank you card. The thank you is a rubon. I have a lot to be thankful for. I then added a crystal and some ribbon. The white circle with the sentiment on it has been chalked around the edge.

I will be having some blog candy on Friday!!! :) Make sure you stop back by.
