New PCW Challenge and A FREE SVG

Hello crafty friends,
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you had a great labor day weekend! Maybe some of you were able to get your “craft on”. If so, I want to invite you to join me for the NEW monthly challenge on the PaperCraftingWorld.com blog.

The theme is an “Anything Goes” challenge with an OPTIONAL Twist. You can include the twist or not…the choice is yours.

That’s it…easy peasy!  The challenges will typically be the first of the month through the end of the month.

Yep, Anything Goes with the Optional Twist to use a stamp. So to kick off the challenge, I made this quick and easy card.

Here's What You Can Win
AND a stamp set (Mailing available ONLY to USA address)
I will be sharing the picture of the Stamp Set On Sunday's POST!

Here is a look at my completed card. I used a kraft cardstock base. The size of the card is 4.25 x 5.5. I then cut a white mat and used my wood grain embossing folder from CTMH to add the wood texture to the mat.

I then cut the tag out in plain white cardstock. I sponged some ink to give it color. I used my Honey Ink PadGoldrush Ink Pad and Cranberry Ink Pads. I used the Always Grateful stamp set to stamp the tree image. I used my Cocoa Ink Pad for that.

I then cut the leaves out in white cardstock and then used some more ink to give them color. I used my Honey Ink Pad, My Pear Ink Pad and My Saddle Ink Pad.

I then used the Always Grateful Stamp set from Close To My Heart to stamp the sentiment. I used my Saddle Ink Pad for the color. I then turned to my silver sequins and used some of my Shin Han Markers to color in some of the sequins. I used my Marigold MarkerCherry Pink MarkerMahogany Marker and Vivid Green Marker.

Here is one last look at the finished card. I used a little foam tape to give the tag, leaves and sentiment just a little lift.
