Here is my card for the DT challenge over at the "Follow Your Heart" blog:
And here is a close up of "Aurora:"
Our challenge this week was to use a new Aurora stamp and blue, green and pink. I used my BG, B and R copics to color Aurora, and then also added lots of the Viva Decor Glitter Liner (love that stuff!). Hope you like the card : ) I also did the shadow behind her with the copics, making lots and lots of dots.....should have done more I think to blend it out...but....next time : )
Now...onto CHA! Like I said before, one of these days I am going to try to attend CHA, but until then I have to get my fix online, and over the weekend lots and lots of things appeared on CHA, so without any more introduction, get ready, grab some coffee, wine or whatever and lets visit CHA Summer 2010:
Cricut Imagine: Wow! Wow! Wow! This is the newest Cricut machine and it is impressive. First of all the machine will cut images AND it is also a printer! So....you can print out designs....then cut out the shapes!
Here is another blurb about the machine, and truthfully it sounds wonderful! What will be interesting is what the machine will sell for (it is both a printer and electronic cutter), and the MSRP is $599 (way too pricey for me), but most stores should sell this machine for at least $100 less (I hope).
Here is a video of the machine in action:
Spellbinders: A new manual die cutting machine that will take 8.5 x 11 paper and NEW dies that are large enough for scrapbookers! These look amazing! And here is a link to the discussion on the new machine.
Slice: A new, faster and more accurate Slice, the Slice "Elite," along with all of the new cards I linked to last week. Now...someone tell me how I justify getting a new Slice....sigh. Here is a video (from Craft Critique)
StampTV: Three great videos from Gina K! Loved watching these videos, very fun and well done.
Paint Me Plaid: Amazing posts on CHA, lots and lots of pictures, I felt like I was "there" at CHA when reading this blog! And this is a good blog to save for future visits as well.
ScrapTime: Some cool videos and pictures here as well.
Paper Pile Kittens Blog: Amazing collection of links to products that were previewed at CHA Summer 2010. I didn't even get through all of the links there are so many!
Creating the Keepsakes Blog: More fun videos to view.
Prima Booth Video:
Whew! And that isn't everything either! I will keep looking for more links, and still have a few I didn't list here yet.
Have a great week and thanks so much for stopping by.
