April Layered Embellishment Challenge**WINNER**

Post by StacyLee »

Thanks everyone for playing along again this month! I’ll be posting the May challenge on the 15th and it will run through the end of June. For April’s challenge the winner is.....Mathandlit! Congrats, I’ll be getting your gc out to you shortly!

Hey cherries! I'm SO excited at the response to last month's challenge!  There's still a day left on that one if you haven't had a chance to do it yet.

So this month there are fewer items on the list to layer because.....well.....I left off something that was sitting on my desk, took a picture of the embellishment, of the layout, did the blog post for Sketch N Scrap....and after all that I wasn't re-doing it! LOL  So here's your list of requirements for April:

1. Base must be a 3x4 cut-apart or PL card
2. Any piece of ephemera.  My example--the sneakers
3. One flair (if you don't have any flair, I'll accept a button)
4. Anything fussy-cut.  I fussy-cut the star from a piece of patterned paper
5. Freebie. My freebie was a second piece of ephemera--the travel journal
ImageImage


Just like last month, you are limited to using only the items listed above, but you can layer them any way you like.  Also, ALL items are required to be used on your embellishment, layering all the pieces into one embellishment is the challenge.  You must show a picture of the embellishment by itself for one entry.  For a BONUS, if you come back and add a picture of your embellishment on a card or layout, you'll get another entry.  No exceptions or changes to the list, please. I will try to choose items that typically all of us have somewhere in our stash. 

The Rules:
Original work only, no digital
You are limited to using only the items listed and ALL items on the list must be used
One entry per person, BONUS entry if you post a finished card or layout using your embellishment
You may combine with one other challenge ONLY if you post a finished project
This challenge will close on April 30th at midnight
A winner will be chosen for a $5 ACOT gift card from me
Have FUN and I can't wait to see what you create!

Hey Kristin, I’m on my iPad and can never figure out how to post a pic in the message boards on it, but here’s a link to an example of a flair embellishment in the ACOT store from Cocoa Daisy

https://www.acherryontop.com/shop/searc ... nce/459968

Sometimes they’re referred to as flair buttons, so if you don’t have an embellishment like my #photo in my example, or like the link I shared you can use a regular button.  They are kind of like buttons you pin on your shirt, but without the pin, it has a solid back. Hope that helps!

Oh gotcha, I think I just bought some of those just didn't know what they were called. Thanks for your help  😊

Just to be sure I understand: the 3x4 card can be cut from a larger sheet of 3x4 cards or can be a project life card? (That’s what the PL stands for?)

Here's what I used
Project Life Card
Ephemera is the little Tim Holtz card tucked behind the jar
Flair-I made my own fake flair(that is what I call them, lol), it is at the top of the card.
Fussy Cut-Jar & strawberries are cut from a magazine
Freebie is the trim across the bottom.
Thank you for such a fun challenge.
I have a process video on my You Tube channel if anyone is interested.
