Challenges.....News........and A Giveaway!

Can you believe I actually made 2 cards for today's Way to use it challenge! Today's challenge was to "find Ways to Spray It. Whether it be Glimmer Mist, water misting, color spritzer, airbrush, hairspray...or whatever else you can think up...have fun spraying it on."

For this card I used my markers to color the image and spritzed it with water just before stamping it. I love the effect, very muted kind of like watercolors.

I used my Fancy Pants Bella Bush for the main image on this card, along with Harmony Happiness for the sentiment. This sentiment happens to be one of my favorites!

Supplies: Bella Bush, Harmony Happiness, rose red, certainly celery, white cs, rose red ink, markers, water spritzer, ribbon, butterfly charm.


Now onto some BIG news!! After the whole Treehouse stamps dilemma came a silver lining!! I was offered a Design Team spot on Our Daily Bread Designs team . The owner Kelley Holland has created a line of stamps that will fit the need of Christians allowing them to create cards for friends and family.

Her store is also stocked with designer papers, stickers and so much more!! Kelley plans to release 2 new sets around the 15th of every month. I am so honored to have been asked to join this wonderful team!!

This is my first card using the Light of the World stamp set. I made this card for today's Way to use it challenge. The challenge was to "find Ways to Spray It. Whether it be Glimmer Mist, water misting, color spritzer, airbrush, hairspray...or whatever else you can think up...have fun spraying it on."

I used glimmer mist (snowflake) to spritz the entire card ribbon and all after it was finished. I just love how it glistens making it so heavenly......LOL! I also used the color challenge from Tuesday, I thought the colors had such a calming effect.

Now on to some blog Chocolate!!!

Kelley was so generous to offer the design team a set to giveaway The winner will receive a Light of the World set!! I will send Kelley the winner's name and she will mail a set direct to you!!

So you are probably wondering what you have to do to get this set!! Just leave a comment on this post! You can just drop in to say hello, ask a question, let me know if there is anything you would like to see on my blog.....etc.

I will draw a random name on Saturday morning.

Supplies: Light of the world, our daily bread designs, soft sky, basic grey , and white cs, soft sky and basic grey ink, copics, glimmer mist, brads, ribbon.

I love both cards but the floral one is my favourite. I have made a few cards using the same butterfly charm in the past week - it really does make a card look so much more special as it does with yoru card.

Thanks for the chance to win this awesome stamp set - it looks great.

I love seeing what you have made and and grateful that you are so willing to share your talent with so many people you may or may not even know - thanks heaps.

Kelly congrats on your DT. Wow!!! Thanks for offering up this beautiful stamp. I collect lighthouses. My son was diagnosed with Autism, my dad died and I was pregnant not knowing if my baby would have Downs Syndrome (with God's grace she is healthy)this was all in 2000. I collected lighthouses and they became more symbolic with the light of hope that I would over come such stormy times. I am glad to announce that I did and so did my family. Just a little why I love lighthouses so much.
Your cards, as you know I have said before are wonderful.
Good luck and I look forward to seeing your creations.
