Another Fitztown Challenge

A new challenge started at Fitztown on Monday and I have been tasked with providing some inspiration today. The challenge is 

I chose to use "Fish 4" as my inspiration. I colored it with Copics and highlighted it with Stickles "Diamond Ice" glitter glue. I cut the image with a My Favorite Things "Pierced Circle" die. Using a paper from my stash, I highlighted it too with Stickles and added a couple of Jolees stickers to finish off my underwater delight. The sentiment is from my favorite online sentiment shop Create with TLC. The sentiment was cut with a Spellbinders Nestabilities pennant die. I added a spritz of "Perfect Pearls Mist" that is extremely impressive in person and used my 1/2" Crop A Dile "Corner Chomper" as a final touch. Be sure to visit the Fitztown blog for more inspiration and to enter your creation!

Come and Get It and Fitztown

I'm still having a coloring frenzy and was delighted to be asked to create a card for Fitztown designs sponsorship of Come and Get It challenges. The challenge theme is
Use 3 of something
I've used this as an opportunity to get an early start on Christmas cards! Using Fitztown's Winter 10 image, I colored it with Copic markers and die cut and embossed with a Spellbinders Nestabilities Oval. I highlighted the image with 3 bling stars. Next I used a small cut of Recollections Christmas from my stash and embossed it with a Sizzix Christmas ornaments embossing folder. I also cut a small pennant out of glitter paper with a Dienamics Fishtail Flags Stax die. I used Stickles glitter glue to highlight the "berries" on the background paper. For the final finishing touch I used Frantic Stamper's new Petite Poinsettia die to cut and assemble the three gorgeous flowers and highlight the centers with round bling. I just love this card but am also thrilled that it gave me an opportunity to get the early start on Christmas cards that I've never been able to do in the past! 

Be sure to visit and Fitztown designs and Come and Get It challenges for more inspiration and be sure to enter the Come and Get It Challenge's "Use 3 of something" challenge! BTW all dies used on this card are available at Frantic Stamper Inc. It's a one stop shop for all your crafting needs!
