Glitter n Sparkle DT - Use Something Beginning with G

Hello, everyone!  Before I get started, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Darcy Schroeder - thank you for joining me!

Well, it's Sunday, so that means there's a new challenge starting today over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog! This week we would like you to Use Something Beginning with G on your creation. I chose this adorable image from The Stamping Boutique called If the Shoe Fits. You all know I love kitties!

I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils, fussy-cut, and mounted on foam tape.  I usually allow a small white border when I fussy-cut, but in this case I cut directly around the line of the image. Are you wondering about my items beginning with G?  I went with Girly, Green, Glitter, and Gems.

I die-cut the fishtail banners and used both the positive and the negative for my card. The banner dies are not stitched so I used a stitched line die to add stitching all along the smaller banner. The stamped Happy greeting was heat embossed in white on a black scrap.

Here are the other supplies used:
  • Clear stamps:  Happy (Inspired by Stamping - Happy Sentiments - thank you, Mynn!), Birthday Wishes (Clearly Besotted - Butterfly Wishes)
  • Dies:  My Favorite Things Jumbo Fishtail Banner Stax, Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes
  • Specialty paper:  DCWV Glitzy Glitter 6x6 paper pad
  • Embossing powder:  Ranger
  • Gems:  Small (Want2Scrap), Large (Dollarama)

Please come over and join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Use Something Beginning with G challenge. We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs again this week!

Love the huge fishtails that create the basis for your cute green focal point. Amazingly even stitch lines too. How cool that you hand stitched. Also love that bold Happy! A great take on the challenge theme, and love the color scheme too. Happy Sunday, and TFS.

What a charming little card! I must say that the shoes "spoke to me" instantly! They made me smile and want to go shopping at the same time. While I've had my high and low points with cats over the years, I really love the one you've included here. I like how effectively you created a cozy little scene and think it was such great subject matter for a birthday card. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

Gorgeous card! Love the combo of colors. So glad you joined our 200th Challenge at Word Art Wednesday last week. We have a new Challenge today and I hope you join us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Colossians 2:6-8 which says, "So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ." Have a blessed day!
