030420 CKC Forgery on the Fourth

I saw so many possibilities in the graphic papers, but after I checked my stash I realized that I had quite a few good substitutions. I settled on three papers to counterfeit - all "b" sides!

CP/Magical Forest "Wildflower", Maggie Holmes/Sunny Days "Carefree" CP/Magical Forest "Always"

Using a homemade hexagon template - 4" point to point.

I stamped 3 stars at a time in loose rows & then filled in with offset rows.
I used 2 different bird stamps randomly on the paper.
On a side note: I pulled photos of all of the papers from the supply list given in the kit description. In writing up my blog post for the kit reveal I realized that the cut-apart paper above doesn't appear in any of the Citrus Twist reveal photos!  Too late - I had already forged the "b" side star paper. (I'm hoping to create some of the cards during the month.)
Then, when I searched my stash for matches to sub in for the painterly blue stripes, I came up with these papers, but I just knew that I had a blue stripe.
I went back for one last look - and discovered the exact paper as in the inspiration kit! Again, after I had crafted my "b" side forgery. I had a bit of a dodgy time this month!

 I decided that if I did a forgery of this number paper 

that I would only end up fussy-cutting it, and so I made this title instead.

Bows: I imagine there are a lot of these little sweeties counterfeited this month!
 I used this template & sized it to make three 1-1/2" bows. (I'd be happy to email my customized template to you if you'll make a request in the comments.)

 I printed onto label paper & stuck each set onto three different fabrics and cut out the pieces.

I assembled the bows with one piece from each fabric, Tacky Glued the center strip & used some unorthodox "tools" to hold them together while they dried.


L-O-V-E these!!!

Finally I had a go at these:

I gathered a few different sizes of circle punches to create some patterned paper embellishments & heat embossed sentiments.  Backed with adhesive foam they made decent counterfeits!

I hope there is something in this post that gives you the courage to try your hand at crafting your own custom supplies for your kit this month. Don't forget what we have in store for you the rest of this month:
  • March 6th:  We'll reveal a couple of mini-kits and projects, in case you're a little limited for time this month and would prefer a more petite kit.
  • March 12th & 18th:  We'll give you two challenges to help you use the kit you've made.
  • March 24th:  I'll be showcasing one of the CKC community who's caught my eye this month
  • March 30th: We'll be offering another installment in our {Killing Kits} series to help you find ways to use up all of your kit.
We always love to see your work, so please share your kits and projects with us.
You can use our Monthly Link-up page, post them in our Facebook Community, or share them on Instagram (we are @counterfeitkitchallenge or tag us using #counterfeitkitchallenge and #ckcmarch2020).
