It’s Saturday and that means it’s time for a new Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge! Today, we begin “Winter Fun” challenge that will go through Friday, January 2, 2015! As usual we have some great sponsors who have generously offered prizes to our randomly chosen winners. They are:
1) A Day For Daisies offering a prize of: $12 Gift Certificate
2) Dollar Graphic Depot offering a prize of: $15 Gift Certificate
3) Sassy Studio’s offering a prize of: 4 images of winners choice
Thanks Sponsors! For inspiration today I have a few images I’d like to share with you. The first is A Day For Daisies “Snowman Scott”. I colored Scott with Copic Markers and cut him out using the My Favorite Things Stitched Circle die. I created the background using the falling snowflake stencil from Simon Says Stamp along with molding paste from dreamweaver. The sweet little birdie is from Lawn Fawn. The “snow” sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and the “Merry Christmas” is from Clearly Besotted.
My next card is from Dollar Graphics Depot called “Winter Thyme”. I love the digi’s from this sponsor as they offer many multiple image packets for only $1.00. I colored this sweet snowman with Copics and used the Lawn Fawn stitched journal card to give him a place to rest. The ornaments are from My Favorite Things dies and the Poinsettia is from Memory Box Dies. Sentiment is from Hero Arts stamps set, “Snow Much Joy”. Paper is American Crafts “Jolly” collection.
My final card is from Sassy Studio’s called, “Winter Wendy”. I colored her in Copics and used the “Holly Jolly Christmas” from Echo Park. Oval die is My Favorite Things and sentiment is Simon Says Stamp.
Happy Saturday Friends! It’s time for some Open-Minded Crafting fun with an “Unusual Christmas” challenge. This can be anything you see or interpret as unusual. We are, after all, “open-minded”. Our sponsors have again offered some generous gifts for our randomly chosen winners. The design team will also choose their favorites and highlight those entries on the Open-Minded Crafting blog. I sure hope to see your card in the challenge. You have until Friday, December 19, 2014 to enter.
Our sponsors are:
Prize: 2 Images of Winners Choice
Prize: 4 Images of Winners Choice
Prize: 3 Images of Winners Choice
Prize: 5 Images of Winners Choice
For inspiration I’ve chosen an image from A & T Digital Designs coloring them with Copics and using Basic Grey 25th & Pine 6 x 6 collection. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things. I thought it a little unusual to see fairies kissing under the mistletoe, but who knows, right, perhaps that’s normal!
