Just us Girls #61 3D/template challenge.....{joy}


Happy saturday challenge with Just Us Girls!  Our darling Kristin has challenged us to use a 3-D holiday element on our project this week.  Did someone say 3-D?  As in "lumpy"?  Game on!  I love lumpy!
I also drew inspiration from the current CPS sketch #194

I turned the sketch on it's side and came up with this:

I've been wanting to make my version of these cute stuffed felt iceskate ornament I recently saw.  Kristin's challenge was the perfect time to try one of these cuties on for size and it serves as my letter "j" in JOY.  I was also inspired by Nora and her cute layered tinsel snowflakes for the "o".  For the "y", a good ol chipboard "y" would have to suffice.  I painted it with acrylic paint and dolled it up with Want 2 Scrap bling so it wouldn't feel left out of the creative party! ;)

Lumps and bumps, lumps and bumps, oh how I love those lumps and bumps!
So....what do you think?  Will you join us for our 3-D challenge?  I hope so!  A huge thank you to Cheryl Rowley for being our guest designer this month.  It's been a pleasure creating with Cheryl!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Oh Dana! LOL I love reading your posts! I'm with you gf, lumps and bumps...game on! The bumpier the better. Just when it gets to the point of no longer fitting in an envelope, we're on our way! Ha ha ha

I cannot even believe you made that adorable ice skate!!! Your tinsel snowflake is such a cute "O" and your Y is just perfect painted pink and blinged up! Such a fun, pretty, Dana-y project ♥
