Craftscrappers Challenge #13...

Hi! It is the 1st of the month and that means there is a new challenge on the Craftyscrappers Challenge blog. With the onset of cooler temperatures, we decided to challenge you with a winter theme. And to make it more interesting, we have photo collage to inspire you.

Please create a project inspired by any of the elements from the collage. Also specify what has inspired you, we would love to hear that. And don't forget to link you creations. You could be one of the lucky winner to win amazing prizes from the CRAFTYSCRAPPERS SHOP. Visit the Craftyscrappers Challenge blog for more details and also the gorgeous creations that my teamies have created to inspire you.

I was very inspired by the large snowflake and the beautiful backgrounds in the collage. Here is the my inspiration card.

I took a piece of white card stock and smooshed it with blue and pink acrylic paints. I added some gold paint to the water that I used for smooshing to get a lovely gold shimmer to the background. I the used the beautiful Starry Borders stamp set by Craftyscrappers and Ranger's Silver EP to create a background. 

I trimmed the panel to size and die cut a panel with the Double Stitched Rectangle die by Die Cuts & More. I popped that up by layering 5 more diecut panels. The sentiment is from an older set by Craftyscrappers and I just love it! I stamped it with Versamark and heat embossed with Wow! Opaque White EP.

As the final touch, I die cut three snowflakes from the Snow Flakes die set by Nagashri Arts. I heat embossed them with platinum, silver and holographic EPs and adhered them around the sentiment.

I hope you like my card and are inspired to create something beautiful. Looking forward to seeing your creations in our gallery.

TGIF Challenges - tgifc #83
I decided to CASE the very first card I saw on Cathy's blog, In The Cat Cave. I was very inspired by the lovely snowflakes and the heat embossed background. Since I didn't have any snowflake stamps, I created a starry background with heat embossing and added die cut snowflakes.
