Prettie Wednesday

Today, the Prettie Girls are posting Christie's challenge to use fun foam! The hop starts with Christie, so head on over there if you didn't start there. I don't think I've ever used fun foam on a card. I've made fun foam projects with the kids, but it's never translated to cardmaking until now! LOL You may be wondering WHERE on my card is the fun foam. Well, I ran it through my Cuttlebug with a Long Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities die. . .so it's the scalloped matte for the focal image. The fun foam works REALLY well with Nestabilities dies. It also adds some dimension to the card! Very cool. I may have to use this a little more. I've got a whole package left from when I did a frame project with Savannah. For this card, I used the Trim the Tree set and a sentiment from Snowflake Kisses. We'd LOVE to see what YOU create using fun foam! We'll pick a winner next Tuesday.

How to Enter: make a card using fun foam and any Paper Pretties stamp set(s) you have. Upload the card to the Paper Pretties gallery. Please include it in the Weekly Challenges album and use keyword PWC70. Your next stop on the hop is over to see Jana!

Are you ready for another Paper Pretties release? Well, it's happening next Thursday, October 1st in the Paper Pretties forums! There are quite a few new sets coming that are just ADORABLE! Sneak peeks start tomorrow on a couple of Prettie Girl blogs and will continue until the release, so stayed tuned! Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Trim the Tree, Snowflake Kisses (Paper Pretties); Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); Paper- Dovecraft; Accessories- Copic markers, fun foam, Long Rectangle Scallop Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Certainly Celery grosgrain (SU), flower button; Finished card measures 5.5"x4.25"
