Design Team "Bling" Challenge Reveal

Tracy MacDonald
     This week, Tracy used an image from A Day for Daisies and colored it with my Copic markers.  
     The image is layered on Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock and Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock with a little Bazzill and Anna Griffin paper thrown in the mix.  The bling buckle was cut from Kraft Outlet Pre-cut Chipboard, covered in gold embossing powder and blinged up with some pink acrylic rhinestones.  It's "tied" onto the card with some 7 Gypsies Victoria Seam Binding.
     You can find a complete suppliy list on Tracy's blog, I Wanna Build a Memory.

Audrey Pettit
For this week's bling challenge, Audrey created a feminine, girly-girl card using her favorite go-to products from the Kraft Outlet. Curvy die-cut edges paired with the classic elegance of Buff Ivory cardstock and the rustic charm of Brown Kraft cardstock create a fun, shabby chic look that works perfectly for any occasion. Shimmery pearled and sequined flowers along with crystal clear gems add a touch of glam, and a casual, stamped greeting keeps the overall look light and playful. A simple knotted bow of Black Baker's Twine and Hang Tag String are the finishing touch. For more photos and details, please visit Audrey's blog.

For this week's bling challenge, Aphra created a sweet shaped card. She used her Cricut Expression to cut a bee hive from Brown Kraft Cardstock and Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock. Her bumble bee was cut from Buff Ivory Cardstock and Translucent Vellum. To give the Buff Ivory Cardstock a more honey color, she inked it with chalk. The card's front and back are attached together with an eyelet and then embellished with Black and Yellow Baker's Twine. For a list of Cricut cuts, please check out Aphra's blog.

We're looking forward to seeing what you create for this week's challenge.  Enter your link below and be sure to stop back in for Watch Us Wednesday for a tutorial with Kristina!
