Challenge #70 THINGS WITH WINGS

This week's challenge THINGS WITH WINGS was inspired by the official mascot of 7 KIDS: Kevin the pigeon. Kevin showed up on the path in front of my office a few months ago looking like he needed some help with his foot. I lured him into my office with some bread and captured him pretty easily. What I found was that he had a toe constricted with hair and thread that was affecting his ability to walk and probably causing him some pain. I took him to my office neighbor and she held him while I cut away all the hair and thread. I took him to my house, soaked his foot and applied neosporin. I kept him in a cage overnight and released him in the morning. A few days later, Kevin was back at my office and I began feeding him on a regular basis. Kevin comes by often. My office neighbors keep and eye out for him and feed him if I am not there. Occasionally, he brings a friend, but it's usually just him. He toddles over to my office door when I drive up if he's there first thing in the morning. He knows a good deal when he's got one! So, in his honor, we are challenging you to create a card or papercraft with WING element. This can include birds, butterflies, fairies, or whatever your imagination comes up with!

Challenge #69 GLITTER!!!

Welcome to the GLITTER challenge! Funny thing about this challenge is: I have hardly any glitter in the store right now! The distributor who I had been ordering the majority of my glitter from (Glitter Ritz) has discontinued carrying it and is now be carrying a better, less expensive product called Silk Microfine Glitter! Silk Microfine Glitter is in the store now for preorder and is estimated to be shipping to you in late March. There are 40 awesome colors, and the cool and warm glitters come in 1/2 oz. and 1 oz. jars.


Before we look at the Design Team's awesome creations, we need to celebrate the TOP 3 from the Anything Goes Challenge and the winner of the $20 gift certificate.

And now for the TOP 3 and the random winner! REMEMBER, the ONLY way to win top 3 or the gift certificate is to use products (primarily the stamped image) carried in the store!!!

MINI TUTORIAL: Making Your Own Glitter Paper

Supplies
Color Card Stock
Glitter
Sowang Double Sided Tape: 8.5 x 11 sheet
Die cut


Choose your color of glitter and card stock. You'll want to use a very similar color of paper just in case there is a small area not covered or rubbed off of the tape. 


Cut your card stock and double sided tape with your die cut. 


Peel the back paper off of the tape and apply it to your cut card stock. 


After you adhere your 2 sided tape to your card stock -
peel the white paper from the tape and cover it with glitter.

So pretty and much cheaper than buying glitter paper!
