Papertrey December Blog Hop Challenge
Today I thought I might take part in my first ever Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge:
The Challenge for this month is the:
...annual holiday leftovers challenge! Use scraps of wrapping paper, parts of holiday cards, recycle gift tags or bits of ribbon on a paper crafting project. We all have plenty of it laying around after all the holiday excitement and this is your chance to incorporate some of those pretty little things into an amazing piece of art!
I wandered around the house, looked in my recycle bin, ummmed and ahhhed a good bit, then finally decided to use:
Now, I must add here, we had more than one box of these little yummies floating around the house this Christmas Season (Woolies had a special on them ;-). This is just the only unopened one I had left! I also checked on the box because I had no idea if these chocolates were an Aussie thing, but it seems they are made in Canada, so I am sure my O/S stamping friends have heard of them before too. I decided to use the leftover gold foil from the chocolates to add to my creation. With some ingenuity they could also probably be a chocolatey scratch and sniff accessory!
This is the card that I made for this challenge:
List of Ingredients:
Cardstock: Stamper's Select White Cardstock (PTI), Kraft and Real Red (SU)
Ink: Timber Brown (Stazon)
Stamps: Believe (PTI)
Accessories: Both sides of the Background Basics: Diamonds Impression Plate (PTI), Embossing Pad Kit (PTI), All three of the Beautiful Blooms II #3 Die Collection (PTI), Fillable Frames #9 (cut down to size)(PTI), Pure Poppy Felt (PTI), Dimensionals (SU), Mini Glue Dots (SU), Tombow Adhesive (Penwa), Gold Cord (SU) and recycled Gold Foil (Ferrero Rocher chocolates).
I had fun making this card because every time I get my Cuttlebug out the kids flock to my craft table and ask if they can run various things through it. I have run the recycled gold foil dots through the Cuttlebug, to make them nice and flat for the card too.
Well, Thanks for dropping by today. I hope that you all had a lovely peaceful Christmas, and very best wishes for a happy 2011!
