LOVE My Pink Cat Stamps – DT Challenge

Hello everybody!!

Promissed I'd be back and here I am :). My PCS DT-friend Janna is hosting a brilliant challenge over at Pink Cat Studio & Lily and Billy lovers! on PaperCraftPlanet it is called LOVE my Pink Cat Stamps. Here are the details:

LOVE My Pink Cat Stamps – DT Challenge
hosted by Janna HullChallenge

Since Valentine's Day is coming up fast, I have a LOVE themed Challenge for you! But this isn't any old love themed challenge, this is a special one! My challenge for you is to create a card or project with at least four elements (you can have more if you would like), but four of your elements have to spell LOVE. For example, you can use Layers, Ovals, Violet, and Embellishments; see spells love. Or you could use Lily, Owls, Very pretty sequins and Emerald brads. Spells love. The possibilities are endless and yes, V can stand for very! Just remember that four of your elements must spell LOVE. Have Fun, can't wait to see what you come up with!
Date the challenge ends:
Tuesday February 10th, 5 pm EST

A Pink Cat Studio stamp must be used as the main stamp on the card or project. It is okay to use stamps from other companies as well. Your entry can be a card or any type of 3D project.To be eligible for the prize you must upload your card before the deadline to your PaperCraftPlanet gallery and include the tag PCSDTC1. You may enter only 1 project for this challenge.If you have questions about this challenge, please post them in the challenge discussion thread in the Pink Cat Studio group on Paper Craft Planet. Here is a link to the group: http://www.papercraftplanet.com/group/pinkcatstudiolilyandbillylovers

On February 11th, a winner will be chosen by a random draw from all of the challenge participants. The winner will receive a grab bag of Pink Cat Studio stamps. The winner will be announced in the PCP challenge discussion thread and on the Pink Cat Studio blog. Some cards from the challenge will be displayed on the PCS blog and all entries will go into the PCP gallery.

LOVE this challenge so had to take part myself (not for the prize of course but for the fun of it). Here is what I came up with:

L is for layers (I hope you can see them but I used a lot of foam cubes on this one)

O is for Ovals

V is for velvet (I used yummie Doodlebug Crushed Velvet Cardstock, I hope it shows on the pictures, I think it's gorgeous IRL)

E is for embellishments
I used this very sweet Kiki stamp from the new set. Unfortunatelly I had to draw the things on the head of the butterfly (no idea what they are called in English) since I couldn't cut them out and I wanted to use layers so I had to draw them. Velvet isn't the best surface to draw on so they aren't as pretty as Melissa's.

Thank you Ria for the idea of using a slize of my Fimo cane (see a post down) as an embellishment on my card. The butterfly charm I bought in the store where I had the Fimo workshop (love it) and the beads and flowers are from stash. The sentiment reads 'Sterkte' which means Strength in Dutch, I'm going to send this card today to somebody who is going to undertake surgery tomorrow. Just a little card to let her know she's on my mind. The gorgeous green paper is from Heidi Grace designs and it's shimmery and glittery... love it! The cardstock is from stash.

That's it really. I hope you agree with me that Jannah came up with a LOVEly challenge and I hope you'll join us in the fun. Love to see your creations!!

Have a great day!!
