Crafty Challenge Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to For The Love of Stamping and this months Crafty Challenge Blog Hop! Our challenge this month is a card sketch.  

The blog hoppers have been challenged to use this sketch as the basis for our creations.

Theses challenges are fun because they make me think outside the box. It's not so much the shapes we need to use but the layout for our creations. 

So many things come to mind but what is really on my mind these days is prepping or my annual Christmas Card Club. My club is starting in a few weeks!!! PANIC has set in! LOL  Sometimes it is really hard to juggle a full time job and a small business at the same time!  But I do manage to squeeze in a bit of time to enjoy my craft!.

So what have I come up with for this challenge? I designed this classic white and silver card using the 3D Wintry Embossing folder, the Rectangular Postage Stamp punch, Wonderful Snowflakes, Be Dazzling paper, Word Wishes dies and Stitched Snowflake dies

There is something so elegant with a white and silver card. 

Here is how I made the card:

  1. Cut card base "tent" style.
  2. Cut layer at 4" x 5 1/4". Emboss with Wintry EF
    1. Adhere with dimensionals
  3. Cut a piece of cardstock at 3 1/4" x 6". Emboss with Wintry EF
    1. Use Rectangular Postage Stamp punch and punch out 4 
    2. Adhere with dimensionals
  4. Die cut 2 of the snowflakes from Stitched Snowflake dies. Repurpose the tiny pieces that come from the center of the smaller snowflake by adding them as shown in the picture - 3 in the upper left and 3 in the lower right punched rectangles. 
    1.  Start with the bigger of the 2 snowflakes. Adhere 1 Wonderful Snowflake on top with a glue dot.
    2. Then adhere the smaller snowflake on top of the other 2 
    3. Adhere the snowflakes to the middle of the 4 rectangle postage stamp with 2 stacked mini dimensionals.
  5. Tie a double loop bow and adhere to the center of the snowflakes.
  6. Die cut "Merry" and "Christmas" using the Word Wishes dies and the Be Dazzling paper. 
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have found inspiration  with my creation! 

Happy stamping

Hugs, Tracie
