Mardi Gras Challenge

Happy Monday!   

It's time for a new challenge at Miss Kate Cuttables.  

The challenge theme is Mardi Gras.

When I think of Mardi Gras, I think of flashy golds, purples, and greens.  For the challenge I created a card to celebrate.  

For my focal panel, I used the diamond pattern from Miss Kate's Spring Borders Set cut out of purple and green card stock.  I adhered that to a white panel.  The panel was a bit plain, so I embossed it with holographic embossing powder.  

I cut some feathers from Miss Kate's Feather Set from gold card stock.  They were adhered with glue dots.  And accented with some twine.  

The panel was then adhered to a gold panel, same as the feathers card stock.  

The sentiment was created using an Ellen Hutson Alphabet stamp set and heat embossed on vellum.  

For the inside, I added a gold leaf.  The card base is a white linen paper.

Cupid Tree Top

Happy Thursday!!

It's my day to post over at Miss Kate Cuttable's blog.  

My DT project is a tree top for our Valentine's Tree.  We were away from home over the holidays with no room for a real tree or any big I told hubby that I was going to have a Valentine's tree.  

I put the tree up but didn't have a topper.  With all the weather that we have had here in the midwest, I haven't gotten to any stores to see if there is anything of use.  So I decided to make something.  Hubby wanted a cupid so off to Miss Kate's files I went.   And I found Miss Kate's Cupid cut file.   It was perfect. 

I cut the file from WPlus9 Cupids Bow Card Stock (which is not available any more).  It was a perfect match for the tree decorations.  

Then I clear heat embossed the whole cut.  You can see the shine in the photo below.  To attach it the tree, I hot glued a red pipe cleaner to the back. 


I know that this project seems a bit simple..but it took a lot of trial and errors to get this one.  For example, I attempted to create a glittered version, but it was a total fail! 

Thanks for stopping by.
