Highlights Challenge #162

Such wonderful projects for the Stamping challenge last week. I loved the wide variety of projects posted.  It was hard to pick this week's highlights but I hope you like what we have for you.


Love this Christmas card!  What great coloring, especially the fur.


I liked this layout for the fantastic use of stamping on a layout.  What a great variety of stamps used.

I really liked the thinking outside of the box on this spread.  So many details, and great use of the stamps.

I've been making birthday cards for our clients at Meals on Wheels,

Challenge #162-Stamps

I don't know about you, but I have sooo many stamps.  I'm not sure why even, since I was never really a stamper. I do love to color, so I guess that's why I purchase so many.  I am really trying  to make better use of them.  I especially love this stamp set from today's project, since the designer is someone I know from online.  Your challenge this week is to find a stamps set in your stash and use it on a project.  It's amazing what fabulous things you can create with your stamps!


I admit I am not much of a stamper either but the time I do tend to use them is on cards. I did a set of five Christmas cards and stamped the snowflakes and sentiments on them. The sentiments are also heat embossed in black.

Challange #161 - Washi tape

Hello all, Michelle here. This week is my turn and the theme is Washi Tape. You are supposed to use at least one washi tape. If you do not have washi tape, you may use paper or tissue tape. I have made a tag, covered with MT washi and a little strip of kikki tape. Do share with us with what you have for this theme and have fun!


I used four types of washi tape behind my photo in this layout.


For this weeks challenge, I used several different washi tapes to make a background that I die cut with my die cut machine.

I decided to use Washi to make my little present for my card.

Challange #160 - Snow

Hey Everyone! Tammy here this week.  Well, it's offical.  Winter has started here in Calgary AB Canada.  We've already had our snowfall to start us off.  In honor of the coming winter, our theme this week is can create a project with winter, snowflakes, snow men, snow balls, whatever you can come up with!
Check out what the DT has for you this week!
Here are some snow motif on my washi tapes. These are certainly one of my favorite pattern!


Part of my husband's work Christmas Party one year included a sleigh ride - tons of fun! I cut these snowflakes on my Cricut.
