Thanks to all who had a chance to follow our first blog hop at Creative Knockouts. I hope you had as much fun as the design team did. The winner of the random draw (which consisted of putting the names in a hat and my husband drawing one) goes to "Lady Bug Stamps". Please email me (email@example.com) with your name and address and I will get your prize out in the mail. Thanks again for all who left a comment. I loved checking out your blogs and seeing all your wonderful creations.
We have some exciting news at the Dutch Dare Card Challenge. We are changing our name and look to "Creative Knockouts". Why change you ask? Well, Kelly more or less inherited the Dutch Dare and she would like to give it a fresh new look. To celebrate we are having our first ever Blog Hop. The design team has created some great cards using images from our fun sponsor this week Dr. Digi's House of Stamps. We also have some blog candy available at some of the stops along the hop (see the bottom of this post). So I hope you will get a chance to check out all the teams blogs and join us in this week's challenge. If you have the time, we all would like a little love in the form of comments. Let us know what you think of our new look! On to our challenge this week. The theme is Masculine, so get out those masculine images and add your "creative knockout" to the link for this week's challenge. The rules are the same, so I hope you will be able to join us this week. For my card I picked Dr. Digi's "Hole In One Hal". I colored him with Copics, paper pieced his shorts and added some Glossy Accents to the visor. The papers are from Echo Park's "This & That" collection. The zigzag stripe was die cut using MFT's Chevron Stripes Die-namics and at the corners I added some black Liquid Pearls. The sentiment was computer generated and the twine was from my stash.
If you are following the hop you would have come from Kelly's blog. Next stop is Vicky, so I hope you are enjoying all the creations the Design Team has come up with this week.
Hello everyone, today I have a card using Whipper Snapper Design's "Stephaine". This is one of the first stamps I ever bought from them - and one of my favorites. If you never been to the Whipper Snapper Designs site you should really check out the gallery. They have some super cards made using their stamps. The paper for this card is from Heidi Grace's "Sunshowers" 6x6 pack. The epoxy hearts are from the same line, which I found at Joann's. I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dot folder for the embossing on the side of the card and I added some Glossy Accents to her high heels. I also added some Stickles on her hair bands and tee-shirt for some bling. This was an old Mojo Monday sketch from 2009. After I finished the card I was thinking it should have had more layers. I think it is missing something, but I'm not sure what. I am entering this card in the following challenges: Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog - Anything Goes Stampin' For The Weekend - Colors of Summer Sister Act Card Challenge - Challenge #22 Challenges 4 Everybody - Challenge #28 Anything Goes Here is my card for today.
Just a quick note...I hope you will be able to join us this Thursday for our first ever blog hop and challenge at Creative Knockouts (formally The Dutch Dare). We have a great new look and some fun challenges planned, so I hope you will stop by and take a look.
