Get well soon!

Hi everyone. It's time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week our challenge is to use a tag on your card.



I used a stencil from the crafter workshop to stencil on the fern, cut it out with a stitched tag die and added the RI sentiment.  Popped it up on the green cardstock using foam tape.

Sea you soon

Hello. It's Tuesday, so you know what that means....there's a new sketch up over at Try Stamping On Tuesday. The optional theme on this sketch is "ocean" so this sparked my undersea idea below.




Mermaid is from My Favorite Things. The ocean floor is from Stamping Bella. I colored all of it with Copic markers. My final card took me three tries to get the coloring to where I liked it. Almost gave up too.  I bent the sentiment fishtail banner so that it appears to be waving and adhered it with foam squares. 

Also adding this into The Paper Players #552 challenge of beside the seaside.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Summer!

Hi everyone. It's time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week our challenge is Anything goes!



I CASED this idea from echo park. They have a set of small dies that spells out summer using popsicles, and I thought it would be super fun to use Repeat Impressions popsicles in a similar way. Of course I had to add nuts and sprinkles into the mix. I masked off the popsicles and colored with Copic's. The small letter dies are from Tim Holtz Sizzix line.

Blue water colored flowers

Hello everyone. Playing in The Paper Players sketch challenge today. PP551


Used the new distress prize ribbon on the background strips. The flower stamp is (I believe) from Penny Black and I've had this water colored up and stuck in my stash for a while. Though it went well with the sketch and paired pretty closely with the new distress ink. Pearls are from Moda Scrap, and the thanks die was stacked three times for dimension.

Thanks for stopping in and have a great day.

Stenciled tags

Hello. Sharing a couple of tags that I created a while back when I previously did this technique for a project of the week. Hung on to them and decided it might be fun to rerun this technique again. All you need is a solid stamp, a stencil and ink or paint. 



I used the solid tag stamp and stenciled directly onto it with ink, then stamped and cut it out. Layered them with navy blue cardstock. I also cut out a smaller tag for the sentiment. Navy satin ribbon and twine used for the tops.  The "eyelet" is actually a die that I used on the same navy cardstock.

Have a great day.

Sending best wishes

Hello. Playing in the Freshly Made Sketch today. After starting and stopping many times, this is my final result.


I used bundled sage and rustic wilderness oxide ink on this leaf stencil from The Crafters Workshop. Paired it with a sentiment from The Ton. The loopy die is from Gina Marie Designs. It's actually a slim line die that I pieced together. 

I'm liking the clean and simple design of this. Thanks for stopping by.

Wishing you

Hi everyone. It's time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week our challenge is anything goes with patterned paper and a stamped image. I cheated and used a sentiment. 



You see, I've had this sentiment stamped up and cut out in my stash forever and really wanted to use it. It worked perfectly with this wonderful designer paper from Piatek Trynastego, called Hello Beautiful by Marta Piekarczyk. It is made in Poland and I got this from a LSS online.

Just a note to say...

Hi everyone. It's time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week our challenge is to use a stencil on your project.



The stripes behind the vines are a stencil from MFT.  PTI pale peony ink and a blending brush were used before stamping the flowers. I used a Memento black marker to color in the flowers to create a silhouette.  Used a stitched rectangle die and added a sheet of fun foam, then added it to a card base in pale peony.

The border die is cut out of white cardstock then I took some yellow bakers twine and threaded it through the top eyelets. Gingham designer paper is from A*Muse Studio.

Christmas Ornament

Hello. Playing in the Addicted to CAS challenge of Christmas today. 


Ornaments are from Memory Box. I cut out the snowflake overlay four times from 80 lb neenah white cardstock and glued them all together. Then adhered it to the gold solid mirror layer. I used gold decorative trim to tie the bow and add the string/holder.

Sentiment is from Jillian Vance and it's heat embossed with gold embossing powder. My favorite things dot blueprint die used on the panel, then used a piece of  4.25 x 5.5 foam tape from Scrapbook dot com to stick it to a top folding card base. 

I really like how this came out, classy, clean and simple.

Have a great day.

Red, white and blue

Hi everyone. It's time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week our challenge is Red, White and Blue.





The red "bunting" if you will....border die is cut out of a red piece of cardstock that I had stamped and white heat embossed the music background stamp onto. I really love how it came out and how well it goes with the flag. I used mini ink cubes and a post it note to ink up the stamp. Kept this CAS because it's all about the center stamp/flag. =)  Happy 4th of July!
