Distress Glitter: CC3 Challenge 2. #CC3C

The CC3 Challenge #2 is up and this time it is Distress Glitter. I have to say I'm in LOVE with these glitters. They are like no other glitter out there on the market and come in a wide variety of colors. They are chunky and look like antique crushed glass. You can even ink around the edges with Distress Ink pads and it will take and hold the color.

I created this ATC card using the newest fun products from Tim Hotlz winter CHA releases.

Here is a close up of the Distress Glitter. Don't you just love how chunky it is. When the light hits it, it gives it just enough sparkle with out being overwhelming.

I want to thank Linda Ledbetter for creating these bi-weekley challenges. When I'm overwhelmed with all the stuff I own this challenge is a great way to help me focus on one product and just create and have fun. I also want to thank The Funkie Junkie Boutique for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate.

Distress Paint Marbling: CC3 Challenge 1

While surfing Facebook I discovered a bi-weekly challenge that I taught would be fun to participate in. It's called the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge. This challenge is based on Tim Holtz's new book released at CHA winter. Every other Saturday Linda posts on her blogthe new challenge. You then look up the technique/product in Tim's Book and complete a project that uses that technique/product. Then link your project back onto the challenges post page. I like that you can then click on each one of the projects linked and see all the amazing pieces of art that others have created. There is even a bonus, Inspiration Emporium donated a $50 gift certificate for one lucky random winner of this challenge. So now that you know a little more about cc3, let's get started!

For the CC3 challenge 1, I decided to create a tag using the Distress Paint Marbling technique. I like to practice techniques onto smaller surfaces like tags and then once I have them mastered try them on a larger surface like an Art Journal page. I usually then end up putting the tags into my Art Journal too as embellishments and layers.

  I'm totally in LOVE with the new frameworks dies that Tim Holtz released at the winter CHA show. These are an awesome way to use up all of those scrap pieces of paper that you can't find yourself throwing out. When I'm done with a project, I'll run the scraps through my Big Shot machine with one of the frameworks dies and then throw all of the random die cut pieces into a basket to dig in later. All of the embellishments on this tag, were fished out of my scrap basket that I had used previously on an Art Journal page. The frame is die cut from Ranger's Foil Tape. The inserts were die cut from wood paper, sticky back canvas, patterned paper with glossy accents on top, dictionary pages and a scrap embossed paper covered in gesso.

The Queen Bee is from Unity Stamps. I stamp the bee onto watercolor paper with Archival Ink and colored the image in with Distress Markers. For the crown I added a little of Pewter Distress Stain with my water brush and Silver Liquid Pearls on the tips.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a look at my latest creation. Please feel freee to leave a comment.

#iloveyou 12 tags of 2014 February

 

This is my version of Tim's February tag. I did the same idea and techniques that Tim did, but I made it my own by switching up the stamps and addind different embellishments. I love the Chalk technique and yes we have the embossing powder in stock.

I then couldn't just stop there. I wanted to put it in my Art Journal, so I completed a page with a similiar look but different blackboard looking technique with distress paint. I also used the heart stencil on the page's background and this time I applied some red stencil paste for more texture. I love how the red pops and resisted the distress paint.

Shoe Box Card Swap

What is a shoe box swap? A shoe box swap is where you create a card and bring enough supplies so each person can create your card. All supplies are put in a shoe box (or other box) and are passed person to person to create. If we have 10 people you will leave with 10 different cards.

There will not be a theme for this swap but all cards are to be full cards. Please bring enough supplies for ever...yone to make your card including all cardstock, stamps, inks, embellishments, tools, etc., along with your own adhesive and basic tools (like scissors, bone folder, etc) to use on all the projects we make. Please make sure all of your supplies are labeled with either your name or initials, so we all go home with the stuff we brought. Each person is to provide a sample of their card for reference in your box. Please also separate your supplies into individual baggies or envelopes containing everything each person needs to do your card. This really helps make the swap go more smoothly. You do not need to provide envelopes. PLEASE make sure to use a good quality paper and cardstock. You have to provide everything needed to make the card you design.

This will be a once a month swap. I'm currently looking at doing it the first Tuesday of every month @ 6:00pm starting in March. There will be a $5 deposit to put your name on the list for this swap and then you will get a $5 store coupon the night of the swap. This is to just make sure that everyone that said they wanted to do the swap shows up. I would hate to tell you 10 people are doing the swap and you prep and cut up supplies for 10 and then only 4 actually show up. Deadline to sign up for March swap is Feb. 25th. You can then call the store or check facebook for the final head count.
