Week 5 - Stickles!

Wow, it seems like summer is flying by so quickly! Here we are already at our fifth challenge - I'm so excited! The month of August brings of another design challenge hostess - Maria Levine! You can check out her beautiful work at her blog, riacreations. For our first challenge this month, Maria challenged us to use Stickles! As always, we want to encourage everyone to play, so if you don't happen to have stickles, see what you can do with your own glitter! Maria made this adorable little gift holder which actually has some stickles tucked away right inside! How cute is that?? I can't wait to see what other challenges Maria has in store for us! Check out what the other designers did with the stickles challenge:

Cindy Haffner - Cindy Haffner's Corner

I love the beautiful background paper - Cindy always has a way of pulling together a wonderful mix of products and showcasing them all beautifully!

Jennifer Meyer - Jennifer's Sweet Treat Designs

How sweet - what an adorable bunny! Jennifer always adds such beautiful detail - love the double knotted ribbon and the stitching!

Lynda Benden - Stamp Act

Isn't this lovely - Lynda's easy elegance is always such a pleasure to see!

Linda Boucher - MDC Linda's Page

I thought this card turned out so summery! I think I need to go get some lemonade!

Tamara McKlveen - MDC Tamara's Page

I had a lot of fun this week finally getting to use this wheelbarrow stamp from Outlines; I want to keep playing with it - there are so many ways it could be embellished!

Thanks so much to all our designers for their hard work and for sharing their talent with us!

I think we should have another prize package!! Since this is Stickles week, it seems only fitting that we should give away some Stickles!! Make your own creation using Stickles (or glitter) and link it to this post - you could win this package of Stickles:

And even if you don't win, you can still get some Stickles - we carry all the colors over at the store, so be sure to check it out! Hope you all have a wonderful week!

I'm so glad I found your blogspot - what great samples you have posted! I decided to post a card for Maria's challenge. I don't have stickles, but used some jewels, beads and irridescent embossing powder for a little extra bling! Thanks for a fun idea!

Here's my card:

I don't have any stickles but I love the way they look! I used Dazzling Diamonds to get the sparkly edges on my flower but I would love to win some stickles to play with different bling! Great samples and ideas. Thanks for the challenge.

I love this challenge!
I made a card and applied stickles to every single dot of the patterned paper, the center of each punched flower and to accent the dress ruffle and boots of the stamped image. Here´s my try:

Oh Cindy, I love using stickles. They look so good on so many things. I was going to use stickles on the centers of my flowers on today's card, but opted for dazzling diamonds instead. I'm glad you made that an option too. Here is the link to my card:

I love all the creations you showed with the wonderful stickles on your blog today.
