4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #22 - Lori's Color Combo

** edited to add: If you are looking for last week's winners, please scroll down to the previous post. Thanks! **

Happy Thursday crafting PEEPS! Are you ready for another challenge here at 4 Crafty Chicks? I am your "Hostess-with-the-mostess" this week (Lori) and I am bringing you this gorgeous color combo....You can make a card, 3D item, scrapbook page, whatever your heart desires using these 4 wonderful colors :) I cannot *wait* to see what gorgeous creations you all come up with!



AND...as an added bonus this week, it is the last Thursday of the month, so you know what that means, right?! It's "prize" time! From all the participants who enter, we will use Random.org to pick a winner of a yummy prize donated by our lovely Leanne :) .



This is the card that I created using this color combination. I had a lot of fun making this one because I really love the Butterfly Bigz Die from Stampin' Up! and it fell into place within 15 minutes! Gotta luv it when THAT happens :)

are you ready to see what the rest of the Chicks were up to? Their creations this week are stunningly beautiful - I love them all and I know you will too! Be sure to stop by their blogs and tell 'em so :)

Tamie


Melissa



Leanne

Leanne was on a roll with this color combo and made some gorgeous cards....Love them ALL Leanne! WTG!

A Recipe For Challenge #21

Good Morning everyone! WELCOME BACK to another exciting week here at the 4 Crafty Chicks. Can you believe it is already Jan. 20. Time is flying and so has our weather. We have had snow everyday accept for one this week. As I type this we are in the midst of more snow and wind. Like my fellow crafty chicks, we think it is great weather to stay inside and create.

In case you have missed it we are now posting the winners of last weeks challenge on Wednesday (sometime threw out the day). We had 38 entries which was just fantastic! Thank you for playing.

So this week it is me Tamie who is bringing you Challenge #21. What is the challenge you say? Well like the title says it is a RECIPE CHALLENGE!

RECIPE:
1. Ribbon
2. Brads
3. Pattern Papers.

I thought this would be a really fun challenge. Sometimes it is so hard for me to use my pattern paper and I turn to embossing, so this week, I wanted to challenge myself and all of you to use up some pattern paper. Hope you enjoy this challenge and walk on the wild side and play with some patterns.

Here is some more inspiration from my other Crafty Chicks! Their creations are very fabby! Thanks girls for having fun with the recipe challenge. You rocked it :).

Show Us Some Metal!

Hi everyone! Welcome back for another fun-filled week here at the 4 Crafty Chicks.  I hope you are all staying warm wherever you are.  Here in Central Alberta, we are experiencing a bit of a cold snap - last night was around -31*C (that's -24*F for all my crafters to the south) and the snow seems to keep falling.  But I'm not going to complain because, in my opinion, that's perfect stay-inside-and-craft weather.  :)

If you missed yesterday's post announcing the winners from last week's travel challenge, please scroll down to see the wonderful creations and then go and leave them some love.  This week we've got a fun challenge for you all - we want to see some metal on your card/project.  You could use brads, staples, tags, hodgepodge hardware, metallic paper, metallic embossing powder... there are so many possibilities and I can't wait to see how you all interpret this theme and use metal in your creations.

For a bit of inspiration, here's the card I created using a little, metal swirly clip from the Hodgepodge Hardware kit:



And here are the cards from the rest of the chicks:

Travel #19

Hello fellow crafters! It is another wonderful sunny day here. I do hope they last, but heard we might be in for some snow on the weekend. But it has been sure nice to have the temps not so cold. I am sure they will be back.


Since this week I am the hostess and my husband and I are going on vacation soon, I picked the theme "Travel." So let's see what sort of travel-inspired projects you come up with...be it altered art, a card, or scrapbook layout. Here is what the 4 Chicks created this week.....
