Die-Cuts and/or Punches

Good morning fellow crafters.  Lisa B. here and I am happy to be sponsoring this challenge. We are asking you to use die-cuts and/or punches on your project.  There are some awesome metal dies out there that can really help out and add some amazing accents to your project.  One thing I love about die-cuts and punches are they are a wonderful way to use up smaller pieces of papers or scraps.  Plus there are some amazing videos out there on how to use punches in different ways. I personally have a stash of both of them and they really come in handy.

I would also like to take a moment to thank our wonderful July Step-Sisters Ruth from Weirdcat Cards 'n' Stuff and  Leah Schaeffer.  They have made some beautiful and stunning projects for you all.  If you are interested in being a Step-Sister just place SS after your name on your challenge entry.  We would love to have you!  The information can be found at the top of our blog.

I had lots of fun with this challenge.  Personally I think using die cuts or punches are a perfect way to use up your scraps.  I could of kept making projects, it made me feel great using up my scrap papers.  This whole projects was made using leftovers which made my heart skip a beat! lol

The papers are from Kate & Co by Mind's Eye.  The fact that they were double sided made it easy. I included a picture of the punches that I used to make my project.  I will have all my info on my blog.






So with that said let's see what our Sisters and Step-Sistahs have cooked up for you.

For the Love of Monochromatic

Hi Folks,

Micki here with our new challenge.  You guys probably know by now that as much as I love color and white space, I love - love - love- monochromatic.   Kind of like white space, it's a fail safe for me in my artsy creations, especially when my brain goes into it's analytical over load mode, :-)!  Monochromatic is also the perfect theme when life is hectic and time is limited for arts and crafts!  

The English Dictionary defines MONOCHROMATIC as:


adjective
1.
of or having one color.
2.
of, pertaining to, or having tones of one color in addition to theground hue: monochromatic pottery.
3.
Optics. pertaining to light of one color or to radiation of a singlewavelength or narrow range of wavelengths.
4.
Ophthalmology of or pertaining to monochromatism.

So without further ado, our new challenge is:


MONOCHROMATIC
  • create a project using one color or tones of one color! 
  • it can be a card, canvas, crochet or knitted item, ANYTHING craft related as long as it follows the theme.

Deadline to enter:
You have until Sunday, July 6th - 8:00 P.M. (EST).
Winner will be announced Tuesday, July 9th.
Please remember to follow these few simple rules: 
  • No backlinking only new creations.
  • Three (3) entry limit.
  • Must follow challenge theme to qualify for prize (when one is available).
  • Direct link to your challenge entry ... not your entire blog.
  • We would really appreciate you turning OFF the word verification.

Now for some sweet inspiration from our June Step Sisters:

Judith Wright - Judith's Adorable Creations
                 




Now for the rest of the Sisters:




and last but not least here is mine:

Now it's your turn to share some MONOCHROMATIC fun!  
Can't wait to see what you guys create!
