  • Create a project using the "Embossed Embossing technique" (tutorial) .
  • or Mash it Up! and create an "Antique project using the Embossed Embossing Technique".

Lisa's Pick for FM198


Thank you to everyone who played along with my sketch and take flight challenge! It was fun to see how everyone interpreted the mashup and boy was it hard for me to have to choose only 1 Rock Star! 




It's funny because I'm not someone who cares for the color pink but Jane's card drew me right in. The crisp lines, the defined layers and the trail left by the paper airplane are just fantastic. Beautiful work Jane! ~ Lisa 


*Due some Technically Difficulties we only have our Glamette Picks no additional info from the DT members about the cards.. Sorry about that :(

Happy Friday and thanks for coming by the Friday Mashup! Lisa here with this weeks challenge for you......I've got a sketch for you and I'd also love to see anything flight themed on your project. You could use a hot air balloon stamp, or maybe you want to make a little kite. Use whatever you want as long as it's something that can take flight. I can't wait to see how you all interpret this!



This week's Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a project using the "Sketch". 
  • Create a project with anything "Flight Themed (hot air balloon, plane, kite, etc)"
  • or Mash it Up! and create a project "using the sketch and anything flight themed".

FM197... We're heading to the Farm!


Chinese New Year, the Year of the Goat, is on February 19.  In honor of the Chinese New Year, I've got a weird mashup challenge for you.  Create a project with a farm animal and add some party bling.  The bling can be glitter, glimmer paper, sequins, shiny layers, anything.  Sounds impossible, right?  That's the fun part of these mashup challenges; you end up with something you would have never thought up otherwise!  ;)  Oh, and bonus points if your project has a goat. ~ Heidi 




This week's Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a project with a "Farm Animal". 
  • Create a project with "Bling".
  • or Mash it Up! and create a project "using a Farm Animal with some Bling".
The Challenge will close on Wednesday Feb. 18th @ 6pm EST. Be sure to read the guidelines above under "about the FM" if you are new to our Challenge and Welcome. We can't wait to see what you create with this fun Mash' Up! Check out what the Design Team created below!
