Paper Hugs and Die Cut Dreams

Welcome to the first challenge for PILE IT ON! In doing challenges, I found I love to combine them into one card/project - making the most of my time. I wanted to do ALL the challenges - so starting combining them - almost like an additional hobby to my hobby!

So I contacted my friend Dalis and asked her what she thought about partnering with me to create a new challenge blog. The theory behind the blog - PILE IT ON of course!! You must combine ONE OTHER CURRENT challenge with the PILE IT ON challenge. (Total details are of course on the PILE IT ON BLOG).

The first challenge for PILE IT ON is to use a NON-STAMPED SENTIMENT.

So in my usual fashion, here it is:

Here are the challenges it covers:
  • PILE IT ON (of course!) - Non Stamped Sentiment - this was made using the QuicKutz Chemistry alphabet.
  • Our Creative Corner - Sketch
  • If The Shoe Fits - Color combination of pink & green
  • Heart Hugs - Etsy Inspiration - Chicy Creations - My inspirational pieces is HERE.
  • Secret Crafter - Bling - besides the glitter paper for the flower and non-stamped sentiment, I used rhinestones in the corners around the flower.
  • Cute Card Thursday - Punches - The flowers is a QuicKutz Revolution die and again the non-stamped sentiment is the QuicKutz Chemistry alphabet. I so wish you could see the glitter on that flower - it's BEAUTIFUL!!
And that is the first challenge for PILE IT ON. Now, you only have to use ONE other challenge, and it must be current at the time of posting. You will need to link back to that challenge in your posting. We will be choosing our TOP THREE SCOOPS each week and they will be showcased on the blog. We are hoping to be able to give prizes from time to time, so watch for those. I do believe we have a sponsor coming up, so keep your eye out over for that - and head on over to PILE IT ON to hear about our DT CALL.

Thanks for visiting here...and if you just stopped in, be sure to hop on over to see what Dalis created!
