May all your dreams come true

Hello!
It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week we were challenged to use the following as an inspiration palette.




Since it's a new year, I went with a shaker card to celebrate the occasion. I cut the star out using my Brother Scan N Cut. I backed the star with gold mirror cardstock and filled it up with an assortment of sequins, micro beads, etc. The gold glitter stars were die cut using the smallest star I have in my die collection with gold glitter paper. I stuck three on the front of the card for added interest. The sentiment is heat embossed in gold. 

So, what are you waiting for?!

Why not play along with us and start stamping up a card now. We can’t wait to see your creations!

Ducks and more ducks

Hello. Playing in the Twofer Challenge of Birds today. I've had this sentiment from IO about having all your ducks in a row for a while and it has not seen ink until now.  I decided to put it to use with an old stamp set from There She Goes, which is no longer in business.

Anyway, two cards morphed into three.....






Ducks are colored with Copic's and cut out using my Brother Scan N Cut. The bottom two sentiments are also from There She Goes.


Thanks for stopping by.

Camellia on kraft

Good Morning. Playing in the Inspirational challenge of using kraft today.



I stamped the Camellia with Versamark then heat embossed with fine detail white embossing powder from Ranger. Then colored up this beauty with Prismacolor pencils. All stamps from Technique Tuesdays Greenhouse Society, but sadly it has been retired.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for dropping by.

Heartfelt Sympathy

Hello - Playing in the Freshly Made Sketch this week. I kind of waited till the last minute, but I'm very happy with what I ended up with.


The leaf is a stencil from A Colorful Life Designs and I used Fresh Ink (which is a pigment ink) in Limeade and Basil and a finger dauber to create the corners.

Sympathy sentiment is from Honey Bee and is stamped in Versafine Clair ink and then heat embossed in clear. I chose to heat emboss so that I could wipe away the ink left after stenciling.  Added three dew drops to add some interest, but kept it as CAS as I could.

ETA: Entering this into the CAS Stencil Challenge as well.

Thanks for stopping by!

Adventure


It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week we were challenged to use the Tic-Tac-Toe board below.





I went with blue, dimension and twine. 



I put the compass in my Misti and used navy ink which I stamped a couple of times in order to get a good amount of ink onto the paper.  Cut it out with a circle die and used foam tape to attach it to the navy circle. Did the same with the sentiment. Added the sting (tied a square knot for added interest) onto the base and finished off with a few dew drops. The marbled paper is from Joann's Ms. Sparkle & Co.  The card base is actually a deep navy blue.



So, what are you waiting for?!

Why not play along with us and start stamping up a card now. We can’t wait to see your creations!

Get well soon

Hello. Playing in The Flower Challenge today. It's a color challenge of pink and gray and here is what I came up with.



Stamps and dies are from Avery Elle except for the striped design in the back ground. That is a back ground stamp from Sunny Studio and it's stamped in Versafine Clair morning mist ink. I also used the same ink to stamp the fern's that are sticking out behind the flowers and leaves. The dots are done using a .005 Zig Millennium marker. Added a touch of sparkle to the center of the flowers with a stardust gel pen. Gray cardstock is from MFT.

Thanks for stopping by!

Snow globe

Hello and Happy New Year. We are starting off this week with a designer Choice Challenge. It's Esther's turn and she wants to see snow globes. Here is what I did with it.



The green tree's are a cover die. I sponged on some green ink to the trees and left the outside alone. Ran a piece of white cardstock through the Swiss dots embossing folder (also the stamped globe) so that it appears to be snowing.

I used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut out the snow globe. The base is colored with Copics.

Stamps used on this card:
8901-L, Snow Globe
2709-I, Large Pine Forest
8611-E, Thinking

You can wine if you want to.


It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week is the ever popular "Anything goes" challenge.








Thought I'd get away from Holiday cards and focus on something else. How about a little wine for your birthday? Colored with Copic's.

Poinsettia

Hello. Getting this one in under the wire for the sketch challenge over at TGIF.
