I’ve been so inclined to get back into the swings of things and decided to participate in the Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge this month. The challenge is to use a Tree in your card. I’ve been wanting to get started on my Christmas cards for this year and I succeeded by getting one done! I have a friend who has cows just like me and thought what better way to use my new stamp set that my son bought me for Mother’s Day from My Favorite Things. It’s the Barnyard animals. He bought me the stamps and dies because he knew I fell in love with them.
For this card, I used the cow from my Barnyard Animals stamp set and die cut. I also used grass die from MFT. The Tree that I stamped on my whisper white paper is from the Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up!, and the Merry die cut is also from Stampin’ Up!. To get started I first cut out my two cows and then stamped them. I then cut my grass and sentiment and sponged my whisper white paper with Marina Mist and then stamped my Tree with Garden green. Then I layered everything on the paper to make sure it looked like I wanted it to. Once I had everything in place I started adhering everything in place. For my background, I used Real Red behind the Whisper White and my Base is Garden Green. (Festive Colors for Christmas) I also went with tiny red rhinestones on my tree to really make the card Pop.
Last week, I decided it was time to get back into the swing of things and what better way than to start participating in some challenges again. For this challenge, I decided to participate with the Freshly Made Sketches # 194 by using my Skating By stamp set. This stamp set has a cute little guy and a few items that he can hold or ride on. I decided to make him Rock with his guitar.
Hope you all have a Wonderful Day! Take time out for yourself and play with all your Stamping Supplies!
I received my new stamp set yesterday and of course I just had to figure out something to use it for. I decided to participate in the Paper Players Challenge. This stamp set is just so delightful. It was one of those must haves for me. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. For this card, I used a piece of the 2015-2017 In Colors Watermelon Wonder DSP Paper. Cut to 2.25″ X 5.5″ on each. I then added a piece of whisper white and put it at 1/4″ above and below the DSP Paper. I cut the Hello from the Greeting Thinlits die using Whisper White Paper. I stamped my flower image on Whisper white with versa mark and then embossed it with Black embossing powder. I then used Watermelon Wonder to sponge the flowers. For a little extra pop, I used Metallic Silver string behind the image so that it would have an extra embellishment popping out. Below are two cards that I made using this stamp and DSP paper. Have a Wonderful Day!
I know it’s only May and your wondering why I’m showing you a Christmas card, well I’ve decided to participate in the museChristmasVisons.blogspot.com challenge for this week. A good friend of mine participated in this challenge and I was really impressed with all of the submissions. So I thought why not try myself. Boy it sure was fun using the inspiration that Chris Blagrave pictured. For my inspiration, I used the poinsettia from SU Joyful Christmas as my center piece with the teal as my background. For the poinsettia, I embossed it with Zing Brown Sugar embossing powder and then added the embossed leaves with the teal color. I then added the SU sequins as well to really make the color pop. The Joyful Christmas Wishes was also embossed with the Zing brown sugar embossing powder. I used a MFT Snowflake Fusion background die with Bermuda Bay.
Hope this inspires you today to get crafty!
Just wanted to pop in and share a card that I made to participate in the Creative Grove VIP Community Sketch Challenge. For this challenge I decided to go with Pink, Black and White as my colors. I first started off by stamping my image Love is Kindness. I then used my Stampin’ Markers to color in the image. I wanted to add dimension to this stamp so I stamped it again on another sheet of whisper white and colored it in. I then added stampin’ dimensionals to the back to give it a raised 3-D look. Once I had this completed I then placed my embossed black piece and then added the whisper white image on top. This card is just a clean simple card with a little dimension. Easy to create!
For this project, I used the following products:
Stampin’ Up! Love is Kindness Wooden Stamp
SU- Whisper White Cardstock, Basic Black Card Stock, Melon Mambo Card Stock
Memento Black Ink
There’s never a better time to tell someone how much you appreciate them. For this Scrap Our Stash challenge I figured it was a nice time to do that. This is a 12 X 12 scrapbook page layout that I decided to frame. If your not familiar with Scrap Our Stash, they have a challenge every month where you are to use create a layout using a letter in a word that they have chosen. For this month’s challenge the word is E-M-B-O-S-S.
E is for Enamel Dots (Yellow and Pink), M is for Mine’s Eye Paper, B is for the Butterfly embellishments, O is for the Overlays, S is for the Dots Stencil used to make the white embossed dots, S is for Stamp for the flower stamp used to make the bouquet of flowers. This is my first time trying this challenge and it was a lot of fun.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you Mother’s reading this! For this Mojo Monday 396 sketch, I decided to make my Mom a Mother’s Day card. For this card, I wanted to make it simple not too fancy as my Mom is not into the fancy stuff. I started with the MFT PI heart Bouquet Stamp and die set and then added all the elements from there.
For this project I used the following supplies:
MFT PI Heart Bouquet and Die Set
Stampin’ UP! Real Red, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White, DSP Card Stock
Pretty Pink Posh Sequins
Hello again everyone! I know I’ve not posted in a little while but I’m Back! I’ve just had a lot on my plate lately. I’m now trying to get my Mojo back in gear and with a little help from The Creative Grove and this Technostamper Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 360 sketch I think am getting the Mojo back.
I watched a video on The Creative’s Grove’s website about Emboss Resist Technique and thought that sure is neat and then I saw an email from Technostamper and ding the light bulb came on. I immediately started making this card.
For this card, I used the following Stampin’ Up! supplies:
Whisper White, Black and Bermuda Bay Card Stock
Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay Ink pad
Hello and Feathers Framelits
White Embossing Powder
For this sketch, it was to use the colors Black and White. I chose to make the card black and add the white embossing.
I’ve been a little behind on some of my challenges lately and last night I thought it’s time to get busy and start catching up. I decided the first ones that I would catch up on would be The Creative Grove Sketches. I’m a VIP member of this site and one of the perks is challenges that they offer for members. If you’ve never been to the website check them out at www.thecreativegrove.com . For Sketch 5, I decided to used my Gorgeous Grunge and Work Of Art stamp set.
