Hi everyone! Leslie Turner here and I'm so stoked to be your hostess for this week's Mod Squad challenge! A huge thanks (and a big hug) to Joyce Erb for asking me to play! 

We have Sparkle N Sprinkle as our sponsor this week. 
Be sure to check them out - they have FREE SHIPPING! The stamps are made in Florida and they make their fabulous glitter too!





PRIZE
 Up to $15 for a digital image or set of your choice


My theme for this week's challenge is "Christmas with a Twist!" Let's have some fun! Get a jump-start on Christmas - create any kind of Christmas project for your basic entry into the challenge. 

REMEMBER you don't have to do the twist:-)
 
But for an EXTRA entry, there's a twist! Get ready for it... veggie stamping! Yep, you read that right! Stamp with a vegetable for an extra entry! Hahahaha! Come play with us for a chance to win a very awesome prize from Sparkle N Sprinkle! And if you're feeling really ambitious, grab a veggie!

I created three diorama pop-up Christmas cards using the absolutely gorgeous Christmas Poinsettia digital image set from Sparkle N Sprinkle. Here's one of them.


Here's a view of the inside. I created the bottom panel by stamping with a baby carrot! Oh, YES I did! :)


I hollowed out the center, stamped a pattern in rows with red ink, then used my index finger to 'paint' the centers of each stamped image with green ink.


For details and a couple more photos, see my blog post at Love To Scrap! I hope you'll join us this week - if not for veggie stamping, at least for a Christmas project! I can't wait to see what you create!
Hugs,
Leslie

Hello to all!  Barbara Campbell here and very happy to be your guest hostess for this weeks, Mod Squad Challenge.  My inspiration for this challenge comes from my love of making tags.  Most of the time I put them on a card, but they are great alone. 
For your project, anything goes, but make it a TAG. 

Our sponsor this week is Designs by Ryn


                                                                          PRIZE

Water Effects 1
Water Effects 1 includes 4 rubber stamp designs from my collection - Water Droplets, Sideways Droplets, Rising Bubbles and Hanging Drops Set. They come organized as seen above on an unmounted rubber sheet measuring 5.5" by 8.5". The stamps can be separated with a pair of sharp scissors. This product does not include any backing or cling-mount for mounting the stamps.

She has some creative and very real looking stamps.  I have used one of her stamps "Water Effects 2" in the background on my example.  


I stamped the raindrops "Water Effects 2" with Bundled Sage, and then used clear embossing powder to heat set.  
Power Poppy stamp set Daffodils
Distressed markers Bundled Sage, Spun sugar, Dried Marigold and Fired Brick
Lil'inker tag die, GKD card stock in Kraft and Sage.
A little clear Wink of Stella makes them sparkle.

This week the challenge is to make a birthday card - easy peazie LOL. I always seem to need one so I like to have some on hand. I challenged myself to start using some of my supplies that haven't been used so I finally used my Copic air gun!

It is a prize week, with a Gina K Designs grab bag! Be sure to add MSC in front of your link name for an extra entry. See HERE





The prize this week is a grab bag from Gina K Designs so I know you want to participate. 

Here is the card I made using my Copic air gun. I'll link to the little compressor I found that works great! I simply sprayed over a stencil then stamped and colored the cake. Added some bling and done.
