Robyn's Fetish New Release BLOG HOP!!!

Hello Everyone!!

First off, if you came here from Wendy's blog then you are on the right track. If not, you definitely want to start at the Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog so that you don't miss one delicious creation!!

I'm SOOOOOOO excited to be hoppin' tonight!!! We have 2 very special things going on!!

First, Robyn has an entire collection of new December images for sale now at the shoppe!!! Wait until you see!!!

Secondly, we are introducing 6 new team members tonight on this hop!! Please welcome Joy, Michelle, Kym, Karen, Jeanette, and Leanne!!

You will be thrilled beyond belief with what our entire team has come up with in our creations!!! I think you will both inspired and excited at what's to come!!!

Here was the challenge issued to us:

  • any RF image
  • 1 patterned paper
  • 3 colors of cardstock
  • fibers
  • buttons
  • punches or die cuts
I was lucky enough to be able to work with Hector da House Mouse in da Chimney . I've been giggling at him all day because he's just so darn cute!!!
My paper is all Crate Paper. Except for the plain white cardstock that I printed Hector out on. My card base is a chocolate brown, 6 x 6 square card.

My next layer is plain green distressed DP from Crate. It's the back of the striped trees you see at the bottom. I ran my crimson pigment ink pad over it, coated it in clear embossing powder and heat set it. It gave the paper a super cool texture.

I then stitched around the outside with green thread. I used my Cricut to cut the Christmas Tree border and dazzled it up a bit with the opposite side of the paper while the other trees received glittery treatments =)

The button trifecta is, as you know, one of my favorite combos to use. These are all vintage buttons from Nana's sewing basket. I trimmed Hector out for placement before I colored him and added the large, green chiffon bow with the tiny silver cording in the middle to balance the open space out.
I colored Hector with my Copics and the rest of him was just completely glitterfied!!! I LOVE him he's just too stinkin' adorable!! As are ALL the rest of the images that Robyn has newly released!! You MUST run to the shop as everything is on sale!!! 30% off!!!!

Ok now off you go to Leanne's blog!!!

I know she's got something GORGEOUS and SPECTACULAR to show you!!!

We are also issuing a CHALLENGE TO YOU!!!! It will run from tonight at 12:01 am until Friday, December 18th at 12 pm. Go...Be Inspired...Feel The Creativity...Make Something Beautiful!!!
