It's Enfys here setting this week's challenge. I love all white cards, so my theme is


Whiteout


So we want to see white cards (great Christmas theme!) and only a little tiny bit of colour will be allowed. You can use as much texture, bling and glitter as you like, just remember to keep it white!

The challenge is open until Sunday 25 September at 12noon and any entries that do not follow our challenge rules will not be eligible for any prizes so please read them carefully!

If you want more detail on how the Design Team have created their projects, just click on their name and you'll be taken to their blog.

Ruth: I've used a blue themed paper and the cute snowman from Magical Winter Vol 2. I've used a fair amount of glitter glue, some glossy accents and a blue gel pen to do some dotting! Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder adds some texture.



Emma - Hello there, I have created a little scene this time with Garden Neighbours stamps. I used liquid applique, Delta Snow, pearl paint and glitter glue to create the white snow scene texture. I embossed the backing paper and finally added a sentiment from the Christmas doodles stamp plate.



Daniele. I loved doing this challenge, I used the CD called Love and Cherish for the rose paper and the stampie, which I just used Crystal and Star Dust stickles to colour. The background paper I embossed using the Damask cuttlebug embossing folder. The sentiment is also from Polka Doodles. Just added a couple of hearts, feather, lace and ribbon to finish it off.



Enfys: I used my all time favourite Polkadoodles stamp, this gorgeous Christmas tree to make my all white card. The whole thing was glittered and layered. The scallop squares are Nellie Snellen dies, inked very lightly in ice blue, and I used a Snow embossing folder by Kars to add texture. Pearly white card candi to the scallops finished it off


Fliss: Well, I found this one a little tricky and after much thought, decided on loads of texture for my design. I used a gorgeous sheet of flower stampies from the All Around And Everywhere CD and cut out several different layers inside the black lines. I then scrunched up the flowers and layered them up to form a rose shape. I brushed Stickles Frosted Lace glitter glue round the edges and added a pearly button to the centre. I made up the card with several embossed layers, a glitter card lace circle, some crunchy crochet lace and die cut letters.



Lis-m..This was a tricky one for me.. no colour..? I used the Smashing Snowman from Magical Winter 2, and Various layers of card, some embossed, some die cut, and a few punched snowflakes.. and gems and glitter and glitter pen..!



Miria This week's theme is very challenging but I found what I needed on Magical Winter part two: I just stamped the black and white image and sentiment and added some glitter and flower soft to give dimension.Some white tinsel was the final touch. The background paper is embossed with a crimper.






Colette I loved the theme this week, and really enjoyed making this card, I used lots of dies, an embossing folder, a snowflake image from Magical Winter 1 CD, gems pearls, ribbon and lots and lots of glamour dust.




Dee: I decided to use the one of the Flutterfly Fairies stamps for my card this week. I embossed some vellum and stamped on vellum for the greeting and the wings, added a die cut shape and swirls and Bobs your Uncle a completed card.






Good luck with the challenge and don't forget our rules! Challenge is open until Sunday 25 September at 12noon GMT.
