A Couple of Fun Challenge Cards

by Cindy Blancett on February 2, 2013

Hi friends. I've been working on these cards off and on all week for fun and today I've promised myself that I will do a card from start to finish for fun and then get started taping my Get Your Technique On! card class that starts on February 11, and also tape a pre-class video to give you an idea of what we will be doing in class. This is proving to be a very popular class so far by the amount of signups that I've had and thank you! I really appreciate you. Please read about my card class below for more information.

Get Your Technique On! is a brand new online card class presented to you by Cindy Coutts Designs that starts on February 11. This is not your usual technique card class where you will learn techniques that you can easily find on You Tube. This class, is are all of my classes, a work from your stash concept, and that's exactly what I'm going to teach you how to do, is to use what you have on hand, the basic staples that we all have, to make beautiful projects. If you don't have Tim Holtz Distress Inks, no problem. I have that covered and will teach you how to achieve the look that may popular products will afford you without breaking the bank by using what's in your craft room. 

We have prizes galore and vendor discounts to your favorites stores. This class is one week long, Monday through Friday. I will show you how to use your Tim Holtz Distress Inks (as an example) if you have them and if you don't have them, I will show you how to use your inks in a like manner. 

As always, I have a lot of fun lined up for you and I hope to see you in class! More class information is below for you. 

For the two cards that you see below, they are being entered in 3 challenges of Mojo Monday 278 (MOJO278) sketch, January Avery Elle Challenge inspiration picture where I focused on a rich wine color, and Splitcoast Stampers Ways to Use It 412 (WT412) to make a snowman. 

I still need to announce the Cindy Coutts Designs January Challenge Winner and since I'm behind myself not having the February Challenge up yet, I will give you until midnight Pacific Standard Time today to submit your entry. I'll have the challenge up later today. My challenge is the first Saturday of every month.

Below are my cards that I'd like to share with you today! God bless you and have a great day.

This snowman is so stinking cute!  Love the effect you did on his 'snow'.  The second card is very striking.  I love the tip!
