THANK YOU for stopping by today to check out the first Feature Friday challenge for this term with our new DT! I {Billie} was asked to post this week’s challenge! I must say, I am LOVING these new images! I’m not sure which is my favorite out of this image or Christmas Scamp! I just don’t know, but I do intend to use them both in the next few weeks! I am also using this post for the Copic Creations Challenge!

This was actually a very simple card. I let the image be the main focus, with earth tone papers, a little bling and very few embellishments! The details of this project:

  • Pumpkins Image – The Character Cafe
  • Light Orange Paper – Stampin Up!
  • Green and dark orange textured paper –
  • Copics – YR16, E57, E97, E33, YG63, E13, G24
  • Skittles – dyed with a mixture of Sunset Orange and Sunshine Yellow
  • Stitching – straight stitch with a machine
  • Bling (probably have to click photo to see it) – Tulip Fabric Glitter Spray


A close-up of the colored image. Can you see the sparkle? If not, you may have to click the photo to get a bigger view.

So…what is your challenge for today?

To use STITCHING on your project!

It can be any type of project, and the stitching can be machine stitching, hand stitching, faux stitching with a doodle pen, etc…but it must include some type of “stitching”! This challenge ends at 11:59 PM CST on Thursday, October 15, 2009. At that time, a new challenge will be issued and the winner of this challenge will be posted shortly thereafter.

Please make sure you visit The Character Cafe Blog to link your challenge project and NOT HERE! Entries placed here will not count toward the challenge…but comments here are always appreciated! :o)

Our DT members have done a GREAT job with their inspiration this week. I have included photos of their work below, but also feel free to click on the DT member's name for more details and possibly more photos.
