LLWWC21 - Shaped Up!

Hello everybody! It's time for another La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge!
We have our talented Maureen hosting this week's challenge!

Before I get to this week's challenge, I just wanted to thank everyone who joined in on our new release blog hop last week. It was a terrific turnout and we appreciate everyone's comments! Be sure to go back to the blogs to see if you have won a new release stamp! I have a list of all the blogs posted HERE. Congratulations again to CANDACE who won LOTUS on my blog.


Here's what Maureen has to say about her challenge:
For my challenge, I would like to see shaped cards - any shape other than a rectangle or square.

Okay! Shaped cards it is!
You can see all of the FABULOUS projects that the DT and GDT have created for this challenge at La-La Land Crafts blog!

I had a blast making this one. It turned out better than I thought it would. I created a template of a fan blade on the thick PTI Stamper's Select cardstock. Then I traced 5 of them on this gorgeous designer paper by Creative Imaginations (Christine Adolph). I put them together and punched a hole at the bottom of the fan blades with my Crop-A-Dile. Then I decorated it with some Japanese stamps by Kodomo Inc. and the Garden Trellis punch by Martha Stewart. The ribbon is from PTI... isn't it pretty? It feels so good to play with that ribbon!

What do you think?

Okay, peeps! Now it's YOUR turn! Gotta love getting "shaped up!" :)
Check out the deets on this challenge HERE. You will find Mr. Linky there too.

Here's are the links to the DT and GDT blogs... enjoy!

Happy crafting!

Wonderful colors and a great idea for a shape card -- the MS punch is a brilliant addition. I came here after looking at Kristine's project.
