Crazy4Challenges Inspiration

Saturday means that it's time for another Crazy4challenges Blog Challenge!

This week Helen gave us a fun inspiration picture for our challenge and it inspired this card!

The image is a Shady Tree Studio digital image that I had colored a long time ago and grabbed it off my desk because I knew it would be perfect for this inspiration challenge!

That cool ribbon is May Arts.
The sentiment is from High Hopes.

Make sure you stop by the Crazy4challenges Blog so you can check out the inspiration picture, learn more about the challenge, and see more inspiration from the rest of the design team!

It's time for week four of the Monthly Dreamweaver Challenges.

Happy HallowThanksMas! 

It's that time of year where we are all busy making Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas whatever you are working on will probably work for this months challenge.
As usual, we'd love for you to play along with the challenge and link your creations to the Inlinkz tool on the Dream It Up! blog. Just in case you are wondering...NO, YOU DO NOT NEED TO POST SOMETHING WITH ALL THREE HOLIDAYS ON IT! 
However, you get bonus points for actually using Dreamweaver stencils and product on your creations! And bonus points might actually earn you an extra stencil as our monthly winner...just sayin'!

Here's my creation for today:

I used the double glitter technique and two Dreamweaver stencils for today's card.

The Stencils I used are:

Pumpkin Charm Necklace

The Stampendous Team are sharing some pumpkin inspiration all week long and today I am sharing a fun pumpkin charm necklace that I made with Tricky Words Perfectly Clear Stamps and an Oval Deep Dish Pendant from  HHH Jewelry .

I struggled to get a good picture of this fun charm neaklace!
I stamped the bat and pumpkin on an oval piece of white cardstock and colored with copic markers.
I glued it into the Oval Deep Dish Pendant and then filled it with Ice Resin.

When It dried I added the bling.

Then I hung everything on the chain and added the charms.

Christmas Diagonal Swing Front Card

Sunday means that it's time to share another fun card that I've made with this months Rubber Cafe' Creative Card Kit!

Today I have a fun "Diagonal swing front card" to share with you that I made with The Rubber Cafe' October Kit of the Month, "Christmas behind the scenes".

I used the add on stamp kit, "Santa's Workshop",  Scrap Happy Gluememento inkcopic markers, and Score Tape.

Here is a look at the front of the  Card. Keep scrolling down for step by step instructions to create one on your own.

Here is the inside.

To create the front diagonal flap, cut a 4 1/4" wide white panel and a 4" patterned paper panel.  Cut the diagonal top on the two panels.
Score the long edge of the white panel.

Adhere the patterned paper panel to the 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" tree panel with Score Tape.

Here's how it will look on the front.

Here's how it will look on the back.

Adhere the panel to a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" panel of green cardstock.

 Create a tag and stamp "Merry Christmas" on it.
Tie the tag to the front panel with twine.

Create the main image panel by die cutting a red scallop edge circle panel with a Spellbinders die.
Die cut another slightly smaller scallop edge green circle with a Spellbinders die.
Stamp elf on a die cut white circle and color with markers.
Adhere all the panels together as shown and then adhere to card with Scrap Happy Sheer Glue.

When you adhere the image to the card, only use Scrap Happy Sheer Glue on the part that is attached to the "Present Patterned Paper" so that the front panel can still swing open.

Then on the inside of the card, create this panel by stamping and coloring the image.  Back it with red cardstock and adhere to card.

That's it!  I hope you you enjoyed today's "Diagonal Swing Front Card" tutorial and that you will give it a try!
