Hello, Friends! It’s December 1st, 2013! Can you believe it? In a few short days we will be celebrating Christmas, and the next thing you know, it will be 2014! Where does the time go? Since it’s a new month, that means it is also time for another Challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog. This month, Bonnie has cooked up a fun BINGO challenge for us:
If you’re not familiar with the way these challenges work, I’ll explain. Choose any three elements in a row from left to right horizontally, from top to bottom vertically or from the diagonals and craft a project that uses those items. Or, if you are feeling really adventurous, you can choose the four items from each corner. For my project, I chose the far left vertical column: White, Baker’s Twine and Button.
I stamped the image onto smooth white cardstock using Ranger Black Archival Ink. I then heat embossed with Clear embossing powder and colored the image in with Distress Markers and a detail water brush. I added a little Glossy Accents to her boots, and some Frosted Lace Stickles to her petticoats. While those elements were drying, I covered two die cut pieces of chipboard: one with glittery white paper, and the other with a soft blue. I edged the white medallion with white glue and added some Stampendous Shaved Ice. The blue medallion was stamped with white snowflakes and heat embossed with white super fine embossing powder. I used my white gel pen to add some snow banks to the base of the medallion. Then I used Diamond Stickles to add some frosty elements. The darling girl was fussy cut and popped up on foam tape.
This 6 1/2″ x 5″ card is adorned with Silky Crush Champagne Ribbon. I created a fishtail banner with it (under the sentiment) and also tied a poufy double bow with it.
I added a white star shaped button and Gold Metallic Baker’s Twine to the bow. I frayed the ends of the twine because I liked the way the gold metallic pieces look. The inside of the card is a simple panel of blue and white snowflake paper with a stamped sentiment.
The inside of the envelope is lined…
…and the flap and front are also decorated.
I hope you will play along in the Really Reasonable Ribbon Bingo challenge this month. Simply create your project using the BINGO card as your guide, then link it to the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog. Thanks for stopping by today, and thanks especially for taking the time to leave a comment. Your comments make me happy right down to the tips of my crafty little fingers. Until next time,
