Scrapy Land's New Challenge! {Scrapy Land}

Note: for Edith updates, please click here. She has experienced a little set-back - cards would be great!

Welcome to the All-New Scrapy Land Challenge! My teamies and I are looking forward to to inspiring you with our challenge creations twice a month on the first and third Wednesdays. (Rules are HERE). The Winner and Top Three are selected by the design team. The Winner will be awarded a $15 gift card to the Scrapy Land Store, where there are more than 40 brands of dies and other goodies offered at a discount!

We are also looking forward to being inspired by YOUR creations, as well! 

Spellbinders "Bitty Blossoms" S5-086
Tattered Lace "Couple" (dancing)
Cheery Lynn "Fanciful Flourish"
(for several fancilful flourish options click here)
Spellbinders "Scalloped Borders Two" S5-202

The rules are simple - just follow the theme (this time it is "Anything Goes"


use at least one die cut 
from the 40+ brands 
that Scrapy Land sells! 

Scrapy Land sells dies manufactured 
all over the world, 
so there is a great variety, 
and most prices are discounted 
to help enable you to add to 
your stash. 

The dies used in my card are shown on the left.

Gosh! No stamping on my card! It was a challenge to completely use die cuts in my creation, but fun to think outside my box! The Tattered Lace "Couple" (dancing) die is beautiful! Delicate and VERY easy to cut! It passed through my Grand Calibur the first time on thick white card stock. I brushed on glue and sprinkled the Celebration Velvet Microfine Glitter. (the card is not black, it is NAVY BLUE)

The easel card is 6" x 6" on white 8.5" X 11" cardstsock. But I wanted to use a punch which required a 6.75" square. Do you ever have the wrong-size card stock for the size card you want? We can still make 6" or 6.5" square easel cards, even with the small cardstock sizes. Because the Silver Glossy base is larger than 6", the "folds" for the easel card are at 6" and 9", leaving only 2" for the final portion.
How Sparkly and Pretty! The white roses and white leaves are distressed with Sea Wood Distress Ink, then I brushed on glue and added Transparent Starfire Glitter. The Sea Wood Distress  Ink shows through the glitter. 

Below, I've lightened this a little so you can see the navy cardstock details in the roses and leaves.

Sentiment is computer generated using Garineldo01 and Garineldo Plain fonts. They were free here.

My teamies and I are looking foreward to seeing your creations.

This is just so super gorgeous. The dies are beautiful and you have showcased them perfectly. I want to thank you for sticking with me on my blog. Even though I don't visit, it doesn't mean I don't think of you. There I just days I can't I am so stressed I can't think!!! I hadn't slept a full night in 3-1/2 months.
