111220 CKC November Challenge #1


 Welcome to Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog's first challenge of the month. Here's a reminder of our November inspiration kit:

Hip Kit Club (October main kit)

Master Forger of Ceremonies Lisa says, There are several papers in the inspiration kit which just scream out to me for some fussy cutting and it's one of my favourite things to do! It's therapeutic and never takes as long as you think and the results are always pretty! It can be a perfect way to use brighter or bolder designs or add some individual embellishments to your kit. It really is one of my top five techniques. So I'm challenge you to fussy cut something from your kit and use it on a project! 

You know that this is my wheelhouse! In fact there are already a lot of goodies in my kit that were fussy-cut, namely the critters & stamped leaves in my counterfeits!

 I have a couple of patterned papers in my kit that are great candidates as well. 

2018 Carta Bella/Our House "Country Floral" & 2012 MME/Bramble Rose

Then I took this photo of an ornamental grass by our little waterfall pond, backlit by sunlight on a glorious Indian Summer day.

THEN I ran across this quote:

So I began to fussy-cut the orange doily paper - my utterly favorite technique!

 The paper leaves & apples on the left side are cut from an exclusive subscriber download from The Scrap Gals. Also the orange doily patterned paper yielded that beautiful pumpkin color accent piece. The right side is specialty fussy-cut to allow the blue stripe to slide underneath some of the icons on the background paper, creating the illusion of a die cut. Hand stitched baker's twine provides texture & a swirly wind for the burlap die cut leaves. Machine stitching frames the photo & anchors the title made from alpha stickers. An assortment of buttons plus copper colored sequins complete this ode to autumn!

Don't forget that there's plenty to keep you inspired this month so we invite you to return regularly for ideas and challenges. The month is going to look like this:

  • 18th November: Challenge #2 - another chance to get creating from your own kit
  • 24th November: Follower Showcase - who has caught our eye this month
  • 30th November: Killing Kits - Use up the bits & pieces left in your kit box

We always love to see your work, so please share your kits and projects with us. You can post them in out Facebook Community, or share them on Instagram (we are @counterfeitkitchallenge or tag us using #counterfeitkitchallenge and #ckcnovember2020).
