I hope you've had a great week and avoided the dreaded ice. It's been terrible here. I don't know which is worse - the roads or the pavements!
Thanks to those who joined us last week at The Cuttlebug Spot for our Scrap Sandwich challenge. I loved that challenge and try to use scraps as much as possible - I certainly have enough!
Now on to our new challenge for this week...
We would like you to design a project featuring one of the four seasons - SPRING, SUMMER, AUTUMN/FALL or WINTER. Simples! We also have two great prizes this week...
First Prize: $20.00 gift card to Joann's
Second Prize: $20.00 Stamps Alive online store
I did think about doing a winter themed card since I still have a ton of Christmas cards to make but then I found this super image on one of my new Cricut cartridges. Yip, I went a bit mental and ordered 4 new cartridges - Baby Shower, December 25th, Nate's ABC and Ornamental Iron 2. Very naughty so close to Christmas!
Anyway, enough rambling, here is my card
I started my making a stepper card on my Ultimate Pro and then attached a piece of cloudy paper to the back panel. This was customised in Serif's Craft Artist Professional 2. I used two different colours of Coredinations cardstock for the hills and just tore those by hand. My sentiment stamp is from my stash.
My hot air balloons are from the Baby Shower Cricut cartridge. I love the versatility of this cartridge as you can make so many projects that are not baby themed. Although I love the 3-D pram on it too! I cut one at 4", one at 3" and one at 2" from yellow cardstock and then added the banners in blue. The two on the right were attacehd with a piece of acetate. I attached the biggest one with Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue. Although, I think I would have liked it on foam pads. Hey ho!
And now for the inside...
I added another layer of the cloudy paper and Coredinations cardstock. My sentiment layer is from Spellbinders Labels Twenty and I cut this out on my Cuttlebug. I've left this blank for now as I don't have a recipient in mind yet.
Don't forget there are two great prizes on offer this week so why not give it a try and link up your creation. Can't wait to see what you make.
