May Challenge Introduction & April's Winner | Video with Tasha

Hey Crafty People!

It's Tasha, and I'm back with another Challenge Introduction! Someone keeps hitting the fast forward on me because I still can't believe it's May!!!

So, for this month's challenge we have something a little different!
We have a quote as our main inspiration, because we just loved it so darn much that we had to use it!


So our theme is Friendship & Encouragement.






Card Number 1




I decided to do a little stencilling using some of the new WOW stencils, and I just used a small blender brush to apply Ultra Slow Drying ink through the stencil!

For this card, I first applied ink through the open heart stencil and added Oyster Glintz, which looks absolutely gorgeous on black cardstock!!

Once this was fully cool, I popped the stencil back onto the same spot on the cardstock to add more ink through the starry heart. I then added Metallic Gold Sparkle to this and heat set again to get a really awesome two toned embossing effect!

SO GORGEOUS!!


I cut the black panel with the largest scalloped die of the a2 Lacey Layers die set from Waffle Flower and cut the which panel with the very largest die in the set.
I added the black panel onto the white panel with adhesive foam tape. (The double embossing did cause a bit of warpage on my panel, but some strong foam adhesive sorted that right out!!!

I die cut the Smile sentiment, from Smile Inverted Frame Panel die set by Time For Tea Designs, three times from Neenah 110lb and stacked these to get a really dimensional sentiment.

I completed the sentiment with 'You Make Me' which is from Simple Sentiments 2 by Altenew.

I think that sentiment is so sweet!


Card Number 2



So, I have a bit of a confession to make; I didn't actually make this one!

My youngest daughter made this to send special thank you off to a special someone.
If you want to know more about that, then you will have to watch the video! 😉😂

She added Ultra Slow Drying ink through the stencil in the same way that I did, then we added Totally Teal to the lower half and Chiffon to the upper, to get a beautiful ombre effect.


For the sentiment, we die cut the Bold Thanks dies by Altenew, but the letters was cut from cardstock with double sided adhesive on it.

We used the Your Carriage Awaits Sparkles to cover those letters in the most beautiful glitter!!! Then we added the letters to a hot pink shadow.

At this point, my daughter decided to add some more bling, because less is definitely NOT more when you are 6!

We put the whole thing onto a baby pink card base and called that done!!


So, The Winner Is....



This month's winner is Leah of Beautiful Creations, and we sure thought this was a beautiful creation Lea!!!
