Challenge #3 Squares and Die Cuts!

Wow, it's time for Challenge #3! This week's challenge comes from Gloria. Her challenge is to create a square card or layout and use a die cut shape on it... any kind of die cut shape, Spellbinders, Tim Holtz, Cricut, Sizzix, etc. Just be sure your project, a card, layout, etc. is square and includes at least one die cut shape!

You will need to complete and link your project using the Linky Tool at the bottom of this post by January 26th at 11:59 pm EST in the U.S. CropStop will randomly choose one prize winner and the Creative Team will choose two of their favorite projects to receive our "Cream of the Crop" blinkie to display in your blog and signature!

Please click on the Linky Tool Tab in the left sidebar for instructions on labeling your project!

Here's the CropStop Creative Team reveal for this week!

Vicki used Spellbinder Nestabilities, Eyelet Circle and Standard Small Circle die cuts.
Dalis opted for Spellbinder Nestabilities too, Labels 3 and Labels 17. Martha Stewart's Modern Garland Edge Punch and Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Shabby Shutters are also used on Dalis's card.

Veronica used her favorite Tim Holtz products on her card, the Bigz Hanging Sign Die and Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. On the inside of her card, Veronica used the Spellbinder's Labels One.
The card was made with Elements Core'dination papers available in the CropStop Store.
Gloria, another fan of Tim Holtz, used the Movers & Shapers Ornamental die and the Paper Rosette Decorative Strip die. The Lavender on Lavender Organdy Swirl Ribbon can be found in the CropStop Store.


Remember: Every Thursday at 8:00 AM (EST) we will post a new challenge. You will have one week to link up your project and be counted for the prize draw and Cream of the Crop blinkie! For all the rules, see the link in the sidebar. (If, for some reason, Linky Tools is not working, place your project link in the Comment section.) Please make sure to ENTER YOUR NAME in the linky field labeled CAPTION/TITLE. That makes it easier for the Creative Team. Thanks! For Linky Tool Instructions, click HERE.

Sounds like such a great challenge - and the DT projects are incredible! It seems as though the projects from the first challenge have somehow been listed here though. You might wish to have a look at that and make an adjustment.
