Knots, and Felt, and Glitter, oh my!
More Dare to Get Dirty Challenges! For this little number, I made my own felt flower with PTI's Pure Poppy and Vintage Cream felt, Beautiful Blooms II #2 flower dies, and some aqua embroidery floss tied into french knots. Patterned paper by October Afternoon, the Modern Homemaker Collection. The flower pot is from PTI's Green Thumb set, and the sentiment and tag from Tiny Tags.
While that October Afternoon paper was out, I tried this card:
Used Teeny Trees by Waltzingmouse Stamps. This challenge was called "What's in a Name?"...well,
K: Knots (french knot apples!)
E: Embossing Folder (swiss dots!)
L: Little Bird stickers
L: Love you sentiment
Another challenge was to make your own embellishment. I had some plain heart stick pinks, so I added 2 beads and some ribbon to make it fancy like the ones I see in blog land!
Last, something sweet...a sparkly cupcake tag. Used PTI's Tag Sale #4 die and the cupcake from Baby Buttons Bits. The sentiment is from Tag Its #3. Of course Martha Stewart's clear coarse glitter was my topping of choice.
I think that I have completed about 20 challenges combined...but that STILL leaves 14 to finish if I want to officially say that I "Dared to Get Dirty" at Splitcoaststampers this year :)!
