Hi there! It's Saturday and that means it is time for another fun challenge at Our Creative Corner! This week Sharon is our hostess and it's all about 'Numbers':
"Everyone has a favorite number, or a number they will always remember. So, for this challenge, include a number on your paper craft item. Your paper craft item can be a card, tag, 3-D item, or scrapbook page. Be creative on how you incorporate your 'number'. This challenge is pretty straight forward, without a lot of specific guidelines or requirements. And don't forget to have FUN!
I dug into some new stamping supplies once again and focused my project around the number of a pretty special holiday in December. :) All of the supplies used are listed at the end of the post, if you are interested...including the new super-adorable Mini Jingle Bells from the Holiday Mini Catalog!! I also Sponged Early Espresso ink around all of the DSP edges along with the Silver Glimmer Paper accents.
I received quite a few emails from my last card where I mentioned that you could color the new Silver Glimmer Paper using Classic Ink and a sponge. I wanted to post a side-by-side photo to show what that looks like. The circle on the left is the original Silver Glimmer Paper. The circle on the right is sponged with Early Espresso Classic Ink. The only tip I have is to make sure the ink dries completely (or give it a blast with the Heat Tool) so that you don't smudge the ink on your project...like I did the first time I tried it. Oops!
Finally, here is the inside of the card, using up some scraps from the front:Thanks for visiting today! I sure hope you will join us this week at Our Creative Corner. Please stop by the site to see what the rest of the gals on the Design Team created using the numbers-theme.
Have a HAPPY day! :)
