Grateful

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 went with the color of the left hand mug/pumpkin in the photo as my starting off point. 

The mugs are from Papertrey, Ink.  I was trying to do a mirror stamped image of the coffee cup using a solid photopolymer background clear stamp. I inked it up using Rubbernecker fuse ink in whisper and when I released it, it gave me this marbled effect. Oh, what a happy accident. I fussy cut them out and popped them on the card following the sketch. 

The sliplap planks die is from The Greetery.  Grateful sentiment is from the Recollections brand, heat embossed in detail white.  Embossing folder is from SU and the lovely ocean side and aqua sky cardstock is from Concord & 9th. 
 

Please check out the Design Team’s creations for this challenge, once again, they have knocked it out of the park.

Wishing you the beary best

Hi everyone. It's my turn to share a project of the week over at The House That Stamps Built. I've decided to share a favorite card with you again.


The bear is colored with Copic's and I added a bit of "fur" texture to him using some blending solution and a fuzzy wash cloth.  

I dug this out of my stash and added some glossy gel black pen to his eyes and nose. I like how that little bit makes his cute face stand out more. I did use my Brother Scan N Cut to cut him out.

This little bear is so versatile. He/she can be used for birthday, anniversary, etc.  

Have a great day!

Autumn themed thinking of you

Hello. Playing in the Addicted to CAS challenge #207, which is Autumn.


Pumpkin and crow stamps are from Plum Purdy (they don't make stamps any more). I stamped the pumpkin in Honey Bee intense black ink (loving this ink) so that I could color it using Copic's. The small crow was stamped in versafine clair ink, then heat embossed so that I could fussy cut him out. I did pop him up for dimension on the card. The thinking of you sentiment is from Altenew.

Neenah cardstock used as the base and it's top folding. In hindsight, I think I should have embossed the pumpkin image as well so that the crow stood out more. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Christmas

Hi all. Playing in this weeks Freshly Made Sketch #504 today.  Went a little rustic on this slimline Christmas card.


I made an online purchase from a stamp company and they wrapped up my purchase in this gingham paper. It was actually a bag, but I cut it apart and used it on this cad. Sentiment is from Impress cards and crafts and I embossed it in Ranger liquid platinum embossing powder. Most of the dies used for the greenery are from Echo Park/Carta Bella. Doodlebug designs made the dark red candy dots that I used for the holly berries.

Thanks for stopping by.
