Good Morning Everyone

Last night Paper Passion had a TGIF crop, there were lots of challenges and lots of fun to be had. I didn't have the time to do a lot of participating last night as I had a hot date with a project that I have been working on for a couple of months. Yesterday I found the items I needed to finish the exterior of it. I will give you all a sneak peek but this one is being submitted. So you are going to have to wait for the rest. Using some of my favourite companies, Graphic 45, Tattered Angels, Tim Holtz, and Prima.

Now Back to a couple of the challenges that they had for all of us.

Challenge #2

Was to make two different cards using the same paper. So I bent the rule a bit and used the one card with the humming bird (which was done for a client) and then used the leftovers to make the second card. The paper is from Prima and the teal side was the back side. I used a screen and glimmer mists from Tattered Angels. Throw on some Tim Holtz stamped images. I used glossy accents over the word sweet (this was not dry at the time of the photo). I have a handful of companies that I absolutely love Prima, Tattered Angels and Tim Holtz work so very well together.

Challenge #6

Was to create a card with the following requirements:

  1. Must contain 4 colors: I have yellow, orange, red, green and brown
  2. Must contain a die cut: That is my green bracket that got a hit of glossy accents on it.
  3. Must contain a chipboard element: That is the oval that I inked and used my sharpie on and then accented with Glossy accents.
  4. NO FLOWERS!!!!!! of any sort.
I used Glimmer mist and Screens as well as Tim Holtz clock stamp with distress inks.

I will chip away at the rest of the challenges but they were awesome.

As if that wasn't enough for a day of fun....look what came in the mail from Tattered Angels and Cosmo Cricket Papers!

Tattered angels pairs up each month with another great company and there is usually a challenge competition that they invite you to enter. Well I submitted my layout called Destiny and it was one of the two winning submissions on how to use glimmer chips.

Thank you Tattered Angels !

I am looking forward to using up these delightful additions to my stash.
