Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge # 8 - Show us some Metal or Glass

Good morning everyone and welcome to Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #8 - Show us some metal or glass!  We are being sponsored this whole month by Really Reasonable Ribbon and Sin City Stamps

Sin City Stamps owned and operated by
Donna Harrison in Las Vegas, Nevada, manufacturers deep etched rubber stamps, laser cut stencils, chipboard pieces, page layouts, diecuts and chipboard books.


We will also be participating in a blog hop with design team members from Sin City Stamps.  Their names and links will be listed at the bottom of this post.  Go check them out and give them some love.  We all love hearing from you!

My card is 5" X 7" and I used G45 Botanicabella Collection paper for the background then a yellow cardstock with Spellbinders 5 X 7 Mystical Embrace dies.  Then I stamped these Sin City stamps and fussy cut them and edged the pieces with distress inks and then tied these cute little bows with Really Reasonable ribbon.  The butterfly is a metal G45 piece that I ran through a embossing folder to give it lots of dimension and texture.  Then to top it all off, the glass rhinestones as a finishing touch!  Now I have given you metal and glass ... show me what you got!  Dive into your hoard and make something that shows us metal or glass!  Blog about it and then link it to the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Blog.

You have until midnight PT, June 1st. to show us your creation and be entered in the challenge.  You could win both of the listed prizes!  How cool is that?  Be sure and visit everyone and leave some love; we all love hearing from you!

Fabulous card, Glenda! Love the rich, warm colors and your combo of stamps and elements. The butterfly is the perfect addition to the dress form, especially how you enhanced it with the embossing. Very cool!

I love your whole composition on this one. I never would have thought of using the clock with the mannequin, but you pulled it off beautifully. TFS

Beautiful. Love the layers of die cuts mixed with the rhinestones (perfect bling) and the little bow. Wonderful work.

I like the way you combined those two stamps, and the way you added the warmer color to the grey/yellow combination.
