If you're a stamper and you like challenges, or you're new to the idea of challenges and want to give one a whirl, I invite you to participate with The Challenge Chicks! We're a small group of friends and stampers hosting monthly challenges. Won't you join us?!
Our challenge for September 2013 is being shared today!
This month's challenge is to use Die Cuts on your project! I chose to use several on this project to create a fun Christmas card with a bit of a country feel. First, I die cut a window on the front of my card using a framelit die from Sizzix. Then I created the light using the light background and light parts dies from The Stamps of Life. I "hung" the light across the window using hemp cord attached to the sides of the window with buttons. The sentiment banner is also a die cut that I added faux stitching to, and decorated with a cute brown button.
Now, get yourself a good dose of inspiration and check out the rest of The Challenge Chicks projects:
And finally, you'll find this month's challenge gallery on SplitCoastStampers using keyword CHXSEP13 . We invite you to play along! Upload your project to your SplitCoastStampers gallery, add the keyword above, and your project will be automatically added to the gallery. Or join us on Facebook!
We look forward to seeing your projects!
