SOS #147: Tax Man

Happy Tuesday! It's time for a new challenge, and this week, in honor of today being tax day in the US, our theme is Tax Man. We'd like you to incorporate numbers into your projects.  Think of this as a great opportunity to dig through your stash and use up some long-forgotten number embellishments (got felt numbers? metal numbers?), number patterned papers, stamps ...you get the idea!

Here's what our gals have made to inspire you:

SOS #146: Pieces of April

Happy Tuesday! Before we announce our new challenge, we'd like to thank you for playing along with our Faux Sure challenge. Some of you stepped out of your comfort zones and tried something new. We hope you also put at least a teeny tiny dent in your stash, too. :)

This week's challenge is Pieces of April, and we'd like you to use paper piecing on your card. For those not familiar with paper piecing, you stamp a main image (an outline stamp; not solid image), then stamp it again on two or more pieces of paper (patterned or not), then fussy-cut the individual papers and put the pieces onto the main image. I know that makes no sense, so for pictures and a real tutorial, you can go here.

Here's what the gals have made to inspire you:

Donna
Leslie
Deena

Chris

Now it's YOUR turn. Go into your stash (maybe your scrap bin, even), make a paper-pieced project, then come back here to link us up so we can see what you've made!

Mr Linky will be open until Monday, April 14th, at 11:55 pm. To be eligible for the Saturday Shout-out, please limit your total number of entries to 13, including ours.

SOS #145: Faux Sure!

Happy Tuesday, and Happy April 1st! This week's challenge is Faux Sure, and in honor of April Fool's Day, we'd like you to use a faux technique. If you are not familiar with the world of "faux", they are techniques to make things look like something they are not. You'll get the look without having the actual product. You can check out the Tutorials page over at Splitcoast for some ideas. If you type faux in the search box, it will give you many, many options from which to choose.

One example is Faux Barn Board. It gives you step-by-step instructions how to create the look of barn wood paper. I might have to try that one myself one of these days!

I suspect some of you have lots of supplies in your stash that you never use, and by issuing this challenge, we hope you spread your wings a little and (if you don't already have a favorite faux technique up your sleeve), try something new!

Here's what the gals have made to inspire you:

Barbara - Faux Silk

Leslie - Faux Postage

Chris - Faux Northern Lights

Alica - Faux Patina

Lauren - Faux Embossed Leather

Michelle - Faux Patina

Deena - faux mosaic tiles

CHANA - FAUX SILK

Now it's YOUR turn! Go into your stash, dig out some supplies to do a faux technique, USE them, then come back here to link us up below so we can see what you've made!

Mr Linky will be open until Monday, April 7th, at 11:55 pm. To be eligible for the Saturday Shout-out, please remember to link to no more than 13 challenges, including ours.
