Crafty Gals Corner new Challenge #176-Fancy Fold!

Hello, everyone, and welcome to another fortnight challenge with Crafty Gals Corner ChallengesThis week the challenge is: 
Fancy Fold

Our sponsor this week is:

Prize: $15 Gift Certificate

I've got to tell you....I love The Paper Shelter! Their images are just beautiful and so fun to color! And yes....I am late posting, as we have just moved plus faced several health issues all around...but here I am now! *smiles*

Let me share with you my card. I decided to go along with a Gatefold Card. Since I don't have everything in my craft room yet, I thought that would be the easiest thing for me to do. Here it is:

I used the pre-colored image, which was a big help for me. I love the fact they offer that option! To make the gate fold, I cut out a 9"x5 1/4" cardstock, and folded each end of the long side at 2 1/4". This made the middle 4 1/2". I printed out the background and cut it in half, and put each half on the outside of the small ends. I then adhered my image to the front only on one side of the gate, and added stickles to give her some shine. 

I decided to make this Christmas card really fun, I added some deco foil on the sentiment inside, plus the background of the sentiment. This gave it quite the sparkle!

I hope that you will join us for this challenge! And have a lot of fun with it! Thanks for stopping by!

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #175 - Anything Fall Goes!

Wow! It's already time for another challenge over at Crafty Gals Corner! This one is #175 and the theme is: Anything Fall Goes.
Our sponsors for this week are:

Prize ~ 3 Digital Images

Prize ~ 1 Image Pack

Prize ~ 1 digital image

For this challenge, I used an image from Pretty Graphic Design. This was an absolute joy to make! These Fall Animals are just adorable! So so cute!! Here it is: 

I decided to go ahead and make a little Fall Wall Hanging for my project. I first used my Silhouette to print and cut out all the images I needed: The tree, the owl, the squirrel, and the pumpkins. I made the pumpkins in 3 sizes. (Also, the word "Fall" was part of my Silhouette software.)

Before putting anything together, I cut out a white cardstock and colored in the background with my Tim Holtz Ink Oxides (Bone China and Walnut Stain). I layered all my pieces on top, starting with my tree and adding the owl in the tree. The layered the 3 pumpkins on the bottom of the tree with the squirrel next to them. I used a glitter cardstock as my base for the wall hanging and added glitter glue on the scarves of the owl and the squirrel.

I love how it came out! And this was a pretty simple project to do, as all the images were pre-colored! How's that for something quick when you need something done fast??!! 

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope that this inspired you and that you will join us for the challenge!

Crafty Gals Corner Challenges #174 - 3+ Layers!

Hello, crafters! And welcome to my blog and another challenge with Crafty Gals Corner Challenges! What an exciting challenge this is! I love adding layers....the challenge is: 3+ Layers. Our amazing sponsors for this week are:

Digital Delights by Louby Loo
Prize: $5 Gift Certificate

Prize: 2 Digital Images

Bugaboo Stamps
Prize: $12 Gift Certificate

Now on to my project for this challenge! I love Conie Fong images! Always have! And this one is no exception: Alanna.
I had such fun with this one! And I knew exactly what colors I wanted to make her! I also wanted to make her into a Christmas Tag. One of this first things I did was to print out 3 images. I cut out one using my Silhouette, and the 2nd one I fussy-cut only the head (that almost sounded gruesome!). The 3rd image, I only fussy-cut the flowers. I colored the same colors on all pieces. I then used 3D to layer the head onto the head of the full image. I loved the effect this gives with the shadowing!

Then I cut out my tag, layered it with Christmas paper from my stash, then layered again with a smaller piece on top of that (centering it), and then another strip of paper to make my 3rd layer (3+ layers). I added her on top of the 3rd layer, added some glitter glue on her flowers and bodice, and then added rows of gold rhinestones on the top and bottom of the tag. 

For the tie at the top, I just used some really thin gold cord and slid some tiny "jingle bells" onto it.

Wow! What fun she was to do! 

I hope that you will join us in this challenge! And I always appreciate your stopping by! Thank you!
