This week's challenge here on the WoodwareUSA blog is to use buttons. I used buttons for the snowballs and I used the Polar Bears set. I was inspired by this week's CPS sketch for the design of my card. Now let's see what you make with buttons! You don't have to use Woodware stamps but if you have them we'd love to see them! Just link up your card in the comments here so we can see your creation! Come back here tomorrow to see what Dawn created using buttons and Woodware stamps!
Free inky links stamp pads with purchase...not one but TWO!!
My card today uses a beautiful set by Woodware USA called A Winter’s Day. It is so beautiful, and it was really fun to color. I think I must base everything now on whether an image is colorable (I know it’s not a word, but it truly conveys what I want to say!).
I have also used some yummy new paper from Basic Grey called Jovial, and I paired it with Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla by Stampin’ Up. I colored the image with Copics, and I used Stickles to accent. The final touch is three buttons and a big luscious bow made with the Bow Easy.
Thanks for stopping by today…stay tuned tomorrow for another design team creation!

This week's challenge is Glitter and Bling, I went just for Bling...
I used my newest Woodware USA set, Traditional Christmas Greetings and went Clean and Simple...
Welcome to the final sample for our "Glitter and Bling" challenge this week! I created my "Glitter and Bling" card using two winter themed sets from Woodware:
Both sets are as cute as can be, I think every set is my new favorite everytime a get a new one!
I stamped two of the trees from Penguin Fun onto the inside of my card along with the igloo and moonlight image from Polar Bears. Then stamped the image of the polar bears sitting, staring up at the sky with StazOn black ink onto acetate. On the reverse side I glittered them up with a hologram glitter. The tree and moon on the inside are glittered up also.
(Sorry for the bad photos, this was so hard to photograph! The acetate reflected the photographer - me! - and it was hard to capture the glitter effects.)
That's it this week for the Glitter and Bling Challenge!! Stop by next week for 7 days of card samples using Woodwared USA Clear Stamps!!

Come back tomorrow when Anne shares the final Sparkly/Blinged Up creation this week.
Happy Friday!! Here is a sparkly card for this week's GLITTER & BLING challenge.
My glitter photography is something I'm not very proud of...it hardly shows the real sparkles. I used SEI shiny foiled designer paper and lots of glitter on my sentiment...for bling part added few rhinestones and rhinestone brads.
Now as you all guessed it ...Yep! Right its TEDDY REMEMBERS stamp set . I know you all must be wondering when I'm gonna move on to another stamp set...well! this will stay as all time favorite one but as WOODWARE USA have added 28 NEW STAMP sets to the store ..I'm going shopping for the new ones. Hope you all find something new too.
The sentiment is from MIXED GREETINGS stamp set.

Anne here to bring you the final sample this week of our "Paper Piecing" challenge.
I know you're used to seeing the cute images that the Woodware DT is so great at presenting to you, so I thought I'd give you a different look at some of the more bolder styles offered by Woodware USA. I love this set, its versatile and unique!
This card was made with the fabulous "Flora" set and stamped and embossed onto Basic Grey Wysteria DP and white cardstock. I combined a couple of the images that come with this set -- it's so versatile, so much fun to work with!!
The corners are Cuttlebug dies; I used both the outside ("positive") and inside ("negative") pieces of the die cuts to embellish the card. I added gold colored faux rhinestones to complete the design!
Thanks for coming by today! Check back tomorrow for a brand new challenge and a week of new samples!!

What a fun challenge we have this week! It's hard to keep so constrained to such a short recipe and I found myself putting things back... I felt a bit like a kid going through witdrawal! Anyway, I managed to create a card that followed the rules...boy that was hard!
Hope you have a BLAST trying this challenge out! Please consider posting your creation following the challenge guidelines: 1 Ribbon, 2 Circles, 3 Flowers (You don't have to use a WoodwareUSA set but if you do, you will get an additional chance in the drawing for a special WOODWAREUSA prize from ME!
Make sure to post your link in the inlinks for this week. You have until September 17 to post your entry. I'll have Mr. Linky draw a winner on September 18 and send out the prize PRONTO!
PS...If you're wondering, The pattern paper for this creation is from Scenic Route. The button is from Basic Grey and the Copic colors are: R24, R22, Y19, Y06, YG23, B00, BV11, E33.
KerryIt's Nancy here!! Aren't you excited about Kerry's challenge...make sure to play along!! I loved this recipe challenge because everyone comes up with such different things. Mine is completely different!! I had a rather strange process to this card! I started with the image and I colored the birds blue. From there, I cut it into a circle. Next, I took out this glittery paper that I bought last week at Paper Source. Using my Creative Memories cutting system, I nested the two circles. Then, I went on a search for the right patterned paper. Well, I hit my Basic Grey scrap stash, and I found the Euphoria. Now, I could color the present. I paired it with the Tempting Turquoise and Rose Red from Stampin' Up. I had to add in the three flowers and one ribbon. HMMM...what do I do now? Well, now you see what I did! It reminds me a bit of an ornament, but I kept it...it grows on me!!
Check back tomorrow from more inspiration from the design team.
