Just a note

Hello - playing in a couple of challenges today. I started with the sketch over at Sunday Stamps and added two different patterned papers for the challenge over at Just Us Girls.

Leaf stamps are from My Favorite Things. Designer paper is from Memory Box.  The just a note sentiment is from Penny Black.

Have a wonderful day. Keep staying positive in these trying times!

You are enough

Hello. Playing in this weeks Freshly Made Sketch #437. I have to tell you, this one stumped me for a bit. I tried several different ideas, but scrapped them all - mojo was not happening. Well, the mail lady brought me my new distress oxide ink in speckled egg and some new stamps from Simon Stay Stamp, and an idea hit. 

Butterflies seem to be working for me with FMS, so I went with it. The black frame die is from Honey Bee stamps. The butterfly and sentiment is from the new SSS set called Beautiful Butterflies.  I also used peacock feathers and chipped sapphire oxide inks to blend with the new speckled egg onto Bristol paper.

ETA: Entering this into SSS Wednesday challenge of Anything Goes.

Thanks for stopping in. 

What's brewing?

Hello everyone - here is my last card for the Spring/Summer coffee lovers blog hop.

It's a digi from Stamplorations.

I printed it out on Neenah solar white 80 lb cardstock and colored with Copic's and colored pencils. I got lucky and found a piece of cardstock that matched the marker and used that in the background. Sentiment is from Honey Bee.

Have a great weekend!

Fusion Card Challenge - congratulations

Hello and Welcome to another Fusion Card Challenge, where you can use the sketch or the photo or both. Here is what I did with it.

I chose to follow the sketch and the colors in the photo. I used distress oxide inks and watercolor paper to create a background. Stamped the congratulations (stamps from Frantic Stamper) and heat embossed it, so that it would stand out on the water color paper. 

Please check out the Design Team’s creations for this challenge.

Amazing, awesome,!

Hello. Adding another card into the 2020 Spring/Summer coffee lovers blog hop.

Coffee cup and sentiment "flavor" stamps are from Sugar Pea Designs. I thought the red gingham designer paper went with the hearts and it also reminds me of a summer picnic basket, blanket and seat cushions, etc. 

You die is from Simon Says Stamp. The little heart stamp is from Lawn Fawn. 

Gatefold card - feel better soon

Hi everyone. It's time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week our challenge is the ever popular anything goes.

OMG - I did a fun fold card! Hydrangea is a part of the beautiful days stamp category over at Repeat Impressions. Link below. I stamped it in versafine, heat embossed then colored with Copic's. Added some yellow farika decoru yellow to the centers of the Hydrangeas. Some of them flattened out too much in the drying. Bummer! 

There's a new challenge every week over at  The House That Stamps Built, and you don't have to use Repeat Impressions stamps to link up or win. Also, for my blog readers: Enjoy the 10% discount code to the Repeat Impressions Store posted on the sidebar.

One lucky person will win a $25 Repeat Impressions Gift Certificate on the first Wednesday of every month – Good luck!

Also, check out our Rock Star blogs to see what they did with the challenge.
