Blitz Winner Addition

From Trina's post, winner of the Woodgrain Heart die- Christine Alexander

From Angie's post, winner of the Twiggy Hearts die- Lynnette Flager

Congrats winners. I have sent you an email to get your contact information.

Let It Snow Pink
by Trina Pham


Happy Sunday everyone.  October is breast cancer awareness month and there are several challenges honoring it with a pink theme.  I’m sure you’ve figured out where my inspiration came from. 😉  One of the challenges is generously donating $4 per entry to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  Pretty amazing, right?  So if you are interested in entering to donate, head on over to the Jingle Belles challenge HERE.  

Okay, now onto my simple pink Christmas card.  Started by die cutting the Charming Snowman Collage die from mixed media paper resulting in this.


Adhered a torn snowy ground mask to the bottom of the panel, and ink blended Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry distress inks (DI) with blender brushes to create the bright pink sky.  After the photo was taken, I lightly blended Black Soot DI around the top and side edges.  Spritz it with water then blot with a paper towel to give it texture.


Die cut the snowman again, this time from white glitter paper in the Frosted Glitter Pad.  Colored the outline piece with Copic Sketch markers C00, C1, C3 and 100 (arms), then inlaid it into the panel. 


For better details and definition, the hat and scarf were die cut from alcohol ink friendly paper, colored with Copic markers then pieced on top.  The mixed media eyes, nose and buttons were also colored with Copic markers then inlaid back.  Black heat embossed the sentiment from Spirit of Christmas stamp set with clear glitter embossing powder and mounted the panel to a white card base to finish.


Not my usual or comfortable color to create with, but it was a fun change up.  And that’s it for today.  Thank you for joining me.  Have a wonderful week.

Greetings friends.  It is a new month and time to introduce another Memory Box challenge. We hope you will play along with the theme through the end of the month.  You will even have the chance to win prizes!  Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who played along with us for our last challenge. We are always inspired by your submissions!

Want to play along in this month's challenge?  The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Memory Box stamp or die on your project and link your entry to this blog post.  You can make a card, a scrapbook page, a home decor item, etc..  To encourage participants with various levels of stamping experience, one entry will be selected at random to win a prize. Enter as many times as you want, but your name will only be entered once into the random prize drawing.   In addition, the design team will select their favorite entry to  be highlighted on the Outside the Box blog and that designer will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog. 

You don't have to have a blog in order to participate.   You can upload your project to any online gallery and link it to this post.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Memory Box product.  You are also welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Feel free to grab our badge to post on your blog post or side bar.
