HIMCR - #137 Designer Paper

Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!  

Here it is the 3rd Saturday of the month . . . 
and do you know what that means?  

It means it is once again time for a new challenge at Hiding In My Craft Room.  This week is about "Designer Papers" . . . meaning use papers from any company like DCWV, Echo Paper, Fancy Pants, MME, 7Dots Studio, etc.  And this we have an AMAZINGLY AWESOME prize donated by DCWV . . . $100 worth of DCWV  (Die Cuts With a View) paper to 3 lucky winners!!!  So get out your paper, scissors, and glue . . . and get crafty!!!  

Since DCWV was sponsoring us this week, I decided to order some of their new paper stacks . . . but since it had not arrived by the time I wanted to do my project, I decided to use an older line "Autumn Splendor" by DCWV along with it's coordinating glitter and textured cardstock to make a "Valentine's Day" card.  I know, a fall line line for love . . . well, I was able to do it because DCWV has such AMAZING paper included in their paper stacks along with some GREAT glitter and textured paper. Here's how my card turned out:

One thing I absolutely LOVE about DCWV's glitter paper is that no glitter or sparkles end up on my hands (or anywhere else for that matter) like some many other papers do.  So if you haven't tried it, you must.  Oh, I also used a vintage valentine to go with this card along with some "Crystal" Stickles to enhance the bows and ruffles on the girl's hat and scarf.

Remember, you have one week to get your projects in to be eligible for the AMAZING prize this week . . . $100 of DCWV for three (3) winners!!!  I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Till the next time I'm up in the night.  Kathy
