Challenge #192 - Metallics

Our first brand new car was a Dodge Omni, and though it turned out to be a massive lemon, I absolutely loved the colour, which was a dark metallic green! I've always loved the shine of metallics. It's one of the reasons I love card making and I use any excuse I can to add a bit of metallic glimmer to a project, so I'm all on board for this theme challenge! The rules? Just add some metallic shine to your creation - Bonus if you mix metallics!



See the Design Team shine up their stuff:

Winners for Challenge #191 - Framed

It was good to get back to routine after the holidays and we set the framework for the first challenge with our sketch, while you went to work and filled out the concept with your creativity! You framed your cards with colour, texture and design, and made us slightly crazy trying to pick winners! It's always close, but this week it was a squeaker! Here are your two winners:


Our first Top Pick is: Joanne James



Joanne took our "framed" theme very seriously and created a great 3D frame highlighting the bold paper with the sentiment panel which echoes the colours and the mood of the card! The cheery feeling this card creates is going to lift some lucky person's day to a new level! Awesome!




And our Featured Artist is: Shirley Gentry


               
                                   
Shirley's creation is just a stunner, with the gorgeous texture from the embossing folder, the delicacy of the printed vellum, and the simple sentiment with the addition of the twine threaded through the borders and the foliage tucked in behind! The overall effect is peaceful and pleasing and balanced - just a joy to look at! Congratulations, Shirley!

Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who played along! I hope you'll come back and check out our new theme challenge tomorrow! Our winners can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.

Winners for Challenge #190 - Wreaths

'Tis the season - for wreaths! And we had all kinds in our gallery over these past two weeks! It's been wondrous. But who takes home the laurels? It was a difficult decision. In fact we couldn't decide completely and we have a tie for Top Pick this time! Here are our winners:



Our first Top Pick is: Tara Cox



With Tara's soft winter colours on the distressed Kraft base along with the charming bird image and the pop of the Noel sentiment made her design stand out among the others. The distressed bow was the perfect touch!


Our second Top Pick is: Ingen



Ingen's simple, but effective card uses completely traditional Christmas colours and basic designs to create a stunning look that just says, "Merry Christmas!" Without a wreath stamp, she used a swirly circle die and with a bow and a bright, hand-trimmed sentiment, along with a Christmassy background to speak "Yuletide" to us!




And our Featured Artist is: dj


               
                                     
The Design Team loved the subtle antiquity of dj's beautiful wreath. The simple twine base and the plain background served as the perfect display case for the mini fir boughs and pine cones, pearls and holly berries. The antique ticket was just right as the sentiment. Overall a very warm and festive feel to a lovely design. 

Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who played along! As You See It Challenge is going to be taking a Christmas break for two weeks and we will be back in January with new and exciting challenges for you! Our winners can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.
