The most wonderful week of inspiration continues today over at Splitcoaststampers!!! It is Dare To Get Dirty Challenges week and you will not even believe all that SCS has already done! As a former “Dirty Girl”, I get to participate on the planning side and today is the day for my challenge!! How do you get to see all this fabulousness?? You simply have to be a Fan Club Member at Splitcoaststampers. Not only can you see all the details of the challenges, you can participate with present and past Dirty Girls. My sample makers have created the most awesome inspiration. I hope you will come check it out! You can see all the cards for my challenge HERE.
I can’t share the details of the challenge but I think you will not be too surprised by my choice of challenge! As I was making cards, I was actually inspired to make two variations. Gold and Silver! They used the new set from Concord and 9th called O Christmas Tree. I am totally in love with the sentiments and the great trees! As an extra bonus, Concord and 9th is celebrating their first birthday so I wanted to join in on their party! I heat embossed the trees on Thick Whisper White card stock (in gold and silver) to put as the base of my shaker cards. For the gold version, I used Pop of Pink DSP’s gold confetti pattern and cut it using the Stitched Rectangle Dies (SSS). The silver version uses a retired DSP. I added sequins based on the color of embossing. The gold is from SU’s Metallic Sequins and a retired holiday pack while the silver are the Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins. Now for that bit of sparkle on the sides. Remember back during Sale-a-bration when the Glitter Tape was one of the choices? Yeah. I HAD to have that and I got it with the holidays in mind. It is so easy to use and it adds so much!! I heat embossed the sentiments again and done! Now…..which is your favorite??!! My house is split on their decision (which is why I posted both).The challenges this week really are amazing and your need to come check out the gallery!! I hope you will go over and check out my challenge and join in!! Thanks so much for stopping in today. See you soon!
