Quirky Crafts Challenge - Kick Up Your Heels

I'm back again in a follow-up post  as Guest Designer for this fortnight's Quirky Crafts Challenge.  I was chosen after winning 3rd place in their May 10th Challenge.
The Cutting Cafe is sponsoring this fortnight's challenge - The Challenge is Quirky Shirts or Shoes - and the design team was sent some fun cut files to use.  For my follow up challenge project - I used the High Heeled Shoe cut file.  How fun is this elegant shoe!!  I did it up in some bright colored shimmer card stock from Papertrey Ink. (I'm afraid the pretty shimmer of it doesn't show up in my photos.)
I love the fun element of the bow strap (there are several different bow options in the cut file for the shoe).  I added an Idea-ology Gum Drop that I colored with Sail Boat Blue Adirondack Alcohol Ink to the center of the bow.
The files also come with a whole sheet of fun sentiments -  I loved the Kick Up Your Heels one I used on the front - and also this tongue-in-cheek one I  added on the inside.  I will be giving this card to a co-worker who loves high heels -  and always wears them -  she will LOVE this! (and totally agree with the sentiment!)
So, if you haven't already - please check out the Quirky Crafts Challenge - Shirts or Shoes and join in!  There's still one more week to play!

Quirky Crafts Challenge - #1 Dad and a Baptism Shirt

I'm excited today to be a Guest Designer for the Quirky Crafts Challenge.  I was chosen after winning 3rd place in their May 10th Challenge.
The Cutting Cafe is sponsoring this fortnight's challenge - The Challenge is Quirky Shirts or Shoes - and the design team was sent some fun cut files to use.  Today, I used the Shirt and Tie cutting file to make a Father's Day card in the shape of a tie.  I simply printed the cut files, laid them over my papers and cut them out.  I used a fun harlequin paper for the tie, backed on a black cardstock base .  The #1 Dad sentiment comes with the Shirt and Tie file.
Here's what I put on the inside.  This is a sentiment from another cutting file called High Heeled Shoes (I'll be back next Sunday posting my shoe!)
And because the card base is black,  I added a white rectangle cut with a Nestability on the back to write a message to the recipient!
 I also made a Shirt and Tie card.  I used Snow Cap Linen Cardstock for this  - the white on white made me think of a baby boy's Baptism suit - so I added a Baptism stamped sentiment.  I popped up the pieces on foam dots to add dimension.
 
So I hope you will check out the newest challenge - Quirky Shirt or Shoes -  over at Quirky Crafts Challenge and join in!
