August Tic-Tac-Toe challenge

Hello. It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week we were challenged to use the following Tic-Tac-Toe grid. Here is what I did.


I used Distress Oxide inks to create the background. The large dragonfly is stamped in versamark and then I used perfect pearls to give it shine. The smaller dragonflies are heat embossed with silver embossing powder. Dew drops added per the TTT grid.  The dragonflies can be found HERE over at Repeat Impressions.

So, what are you waiting for?!

Breathe in deeply

Hello. Playing in the Freshly Made Sketch for this week. Also created my own background to go with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.


I got the new Alcohol lift ink and played around with it today with Yupo paper and alcohol inks to create the background. I'm glad I got two ink pads because one of them is already covered in pink alcohol ink. You get so used to doing things a certain way and then you just don't "think" and reink a stamp and......well, you get it.

Leaf stamp is from Papertrey, Ink and the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp. Dragonfly die is from Memory Box.

Have a great weekend!

To you.from me.with love.

Hello. Playing in this weeks Freshly Made Sketch.


I'm in the middle of trying to get my house on the market and have packed up a lot of my craft supplies to de-clutter. (can you just image?) any who, here is my clean and simple take on this weeks sketch.

The butterfly die is from Memory Box (colored with Copic's) and that wonderful sentiment is from Papertrey, Ink., The square panel is designer paper I got from my LSS.

It's gonna be another very hot day in Washington State, we don't get many days in the mid to upper 90's, so we are sweltering. Thank goodness for our portable air conditioning so we can sleep at night.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping in.

Congratulations

Hello. Playing in a few challenges today. Over at TGIF it's all about the heat - heat embossing that is.



I did the stained glass technique that JM showed off a while ago. Love this technique. The silver top layer and the sentiment was heat embossed using Hero Arts embossing powder. The die is from Penny Black.

I sent this out to my Administrative Assistant for her 25 year anniversary with our company. She's amazing and loves dragonflies.

I'm also entering this into SSS anything goes challenge this week.

Thanks for stopping by.


  

Anything goes - over the hill birthday balloons

Hello. It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week is our popular Anything Goes challenge. 


I used the new Versafine Clair ink to stamp the black balloons. Love this ink as it gives outstanding coverage. Hand drew some strings, cut a bow from a MFT die and stuck it on with some strong adhesive. The black and white designer paper is from MFT. I used a white gel pen to add the highlights in the balloons.   

So, what are you waiting for?!

Petunias

Hello. Playing in The Paper Players challenge today. It's use a negative space on your card and here is what I came up with.


Petunia stamp  and dies are from Pretty Pink Posh. Colored with Copic's and added the white spots/dots using a white gelly roll pen. The "thanks" die is cut out three times and stack to make it stand out more. I cut down the petunia layer so that I could pop it up using fun foam onto a white top folding card.

Thanks for stopping by.

inspiration photo challenge

Hello, It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week we were challenged to use the photo below to create your project.



I used the colors. First I stamped the floral background stamp in versamark,then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then using distress oxide inks on my craft mat, picked up the colors with a paint brush. Some of them are off a bit but I got as close as I could to the photo. Letter dies are from The Ton.
