Paper Craft Crew Challenge - PCC445

 


Welcome to the Paper Craft Crew Challenge Blog!

This week we have a theme challenge, PCC445-Sandy Shores, for you to play with. Living in the
mountains outside of Denver CO, I have nothing in my collection pertaining to sandy shores. That is, if you mean a beach theme. So I have adapted this theme to include lake shores.

My cabin by the lake card uses the Mountain Air Stamp set & the coordinating Majestic Mountain Dies, the Inspiring Canopy Dies (for the grassy hillside), the Peaceful Cabin Bundle & the In Your Words Stamp Set. I started by stamping the mountains in the background. I masked these off with Post It Notes so that I could do the sun & sky with my Blending Brushes. While the mask was still in place I die the lake. I discovered I could erase a little of the color along the grassy shore. I stamped the tree line & tall trees with Pear Pizzazz ink. The cabin is stamped with Basic Gray Ink. I used the Cabin Dies to die cut the cabin and my Snips to fussy cut the cabin along the bottom edge. Then added the grassy hillside. The sentiment was heat embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder on Basic Black cardstock. Then die cut with the Messages Die. 

I hope you like my take on this weeks theme challenge. You too, can also participate in this fun weekly challenge. Just create a project using this weeks theme and post it to the Paper Craft Crew Challenge Blog.

Third Thursdays Blog Hop - Golden Rule

 


Welcome to the 3rd Thursdays Blog Hop!

Our theme for this month is Golden Rule. Anything related to "school days", could be a memory page, a teacher gift, altered notebooks, etc. I have chosen  a teacher gift for my Great Grand Daughter to give to her teacher.

I picked up a package of Pumpkin Spice Latte Via Instant coffee so that I could make some Treat Holders for a craft show I will be doing in November. I also thought it would make a great teachers gift for Thanksgiving. I'd like to thank Marisa Alvarez at Kitchentablestamper.com for the inspiration. I cased this design scaling it down to fit my Via Treats.


I used the Pretty Pumpkins Bundle for this project because of the adorable pumpkins image.
I colored these images with my Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers and die cut them with the coordinating Detailed Pumpkin Dies. I used Old Olive for the treat holder base and the Hippo & Friends Sentiment labels mat. The sentiment is from the Time of Giving stamp set. I stamped the Thankful with Cajun Craze Ink onto the smallest Hippo & Friends Label at the bottom to leave room for my pumpkins on top. The Gingerbread & Peppermint designer series paper is used on the front of the treat holder. I used some Fine Art Ribbon and hand colored some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to finish this project.

Now it's time to see what Golden Rule Inspiration waits for you on your next blog hop stop.
