Craft Your Passion All-Star Blog Hop 2012!

Hi All!  Welcome to Craft Your Passion Challenges "All Star" Sports Blog Hop!!


If you made it here from Bonnie's blog then you are in the right spot!  If not you will find the full blog hop list back at Craft Your Passion Challenges. In addition to the Craft Your Passion DT some talented guest designers are joining in.  You will have the chance to win some amazing blog candy along the way and some great prizes at the end!!

What’s more exciting is you can participate too by creating a project and linking it up over at Craft Your Passion Challenges for a chance to win even more prizes.   Once you have finished the hop and left a comment for everyone, we would like you to create a project with out theme and link it with the linky tool back at the main blog.

Our theme is Sports with a twist, and the twist is stars!  Here is what I came up with:

The bear image is from one of our sponsors Robyn's Fetish.  Carl is so cute and ready to play!  I started with the image and coloured him as best I could with alcohol markers, then masked the image and sprayed with various mists.  I chose papers to go along with the image and cut everything down to size.

As for the stars, I stamped the background and then I had a star punch that I hadn't used in ages and went to town.  Once I had my pile of stars I wasn't quite sure how I would incorporate them into the card so I just played with them until I found a layout that worked.  The glitter stars and the red baker's twine were the final touches.

For the centre I stamped a coordinating sentiment and more stars on an inked piece of gray.

Want to see more?  There are still lots of fabulous creations for you to enjoy!! Caz Is next on the list.  Don't forget to comment and let her know you where there!
