Altered Eclectics July Challenge

 
My Altered Eclectics project this month was to create refrigerator magnets by recycling plastic bottle caps!
 



This is what I used to create the magnets! 

 
I punched circles using a punch and glued the circles to the backside and inside of the caps; the flowers are from the dollar bin at Michaels.  Small magnets were glued to the back of each circle.
 
We hope you'll share your altered projects with us this month at the Altered Eclectics July Challenge.  The challenge is always anything goes as long as it is Mixed Media projects, Altered Art, Upcycling, Recycling! 
 
The challenge can be found HERE.

Eclectic Ellapu Pink Team July Challenge

 
The Eclectic Ellapu Pink Team Challenge was chosen by Carol this month...the theme is Travel!
 
For some reason, I had a difficult time getting a card to come together for this theme!  I have plenty of travel related stamps and embellishments, and made a couple of cards that just weren't what I had in mind.  So back to the search for just the right goodies to get the card pulled together!  Can't beat stamps from a Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamp set and then stamping onto a Project Life journaling card, adhere that card onto another Project Life card, add a piece of an old map, pair it with some TH gears, some corrugated cardboard, some hemp (twine that is!), a swirly gem flourish, a little gold ink splatter, rough up and sponge the edges, and my search (card project) is complete!  I did enjoy the journey!
 
We hope you'll share your travel related projects with us at he Eclectic Ellapu Pink Team Challenge this month.  You can find the challenge HERE.

Love is in the air!

Celebrate all things love with this versatile True Love clear stamp set. Perfect for weddings, Valentine’s Day, Sweetest Day or just showing that special someone you are thinking about them, this set is great alone or used with other sets. The phrasing and butterflies will fit in the banner or use your imagination!
 
If you came here from Maria's blog, then you're in the right place.


I love pink and green color combination!  The ladybugs in the stamp set helped me choose the background for my card!  I used designer paper from a DCWV paper pack.  Green gingham ribbon and a sheer flower used to embellish along with a small clip at the top of the stamped panel which I punched to resemble paper torn from a spiral notepad.

MFP Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge - Mask and Sponge Stripes

 
This week's challenge at Speedy Fox & Friends is to mask and sponge stripes.
 
For my card, I first masked the sides of the die cut panel and then layered a striped stencil diagonally and sponged using Hero Arts Ombre ink to create the stripes.  Removed the masks and then stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Animal Birthdays stamp set.  Layered the striped panel onto red cardstock and then onto a white card stock card base.  Embellished using red gems.  The die cut panel was created using a Lil' Inker stitched rectangle die.
 
We hope you'll share your masked and sponged stripes card with us this week.  You can find the challenge HERE.

The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - It's Wedding Time of Year!

 
June is the traditional month for a wedding and that's the theme that Darlene chose for The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge, It's Wedding Time of Year!
 
I love the look of white on white cards, especially for a wedding.  Oh, I know a "white wedding" is no longer a trend and wedding planners suggest using hints of color!  For my white on white card, I used several different dies and layered them for texture and depth; the sentiment is from Stampin' Up Teeny Tiny Wishes.
 
We hope you'll share your wedding cards/projects with us.  You can find The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge HERE.
