Inspiration Challenge 169

Happy Saturday everyone!

Here my card for today's IC on SCS. I chose this image for mine: Striped Napkins. I loved the fun and bright colors. I made the striped background my self with SU markers in Real Red, Brocade Blue, So Saffron and Certainly Celery.

The images from Garden Whimsy were stamped by coloring in the imagaes and stamping onto WW cardstock. The butterfly is the MS punch and I sponged it in Certainly Celery and Brocade Blue and adhered with a pop dot. I used rasberry stickels for the body, The little lady bugs and main image are up on dimensionals. I added some Real Red striped ribbon and Certainly Celery ribbon for the embellishment in the top right corner.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Way to Use It 207 Frugal Finds and MoJo 75

Good afternoon all!

Here is my card for today's Way to Use It Challenge to use something on your card that you was a good find. Mine here is the image and sentiment. They are from Imaginase and they were only for a dollar. I also made this for the Mojo sketch for the week. I made one earlier this week, but I didn't really like ti so I thought I would try again. I do like this one better, but it is not my best. The base card is WW. I use American Craft Metropolitan dp. The image was stamped in tuxedo black twice onto WW and colored in with Copics. I then cut out the one and adhered it on top with pop dots. I used one of the images from Pocket Silhouettes to make some "grass".

I added some photo corners, sentiment and some half back pearls.

Sketch Challenge 217

Good afternoon everyone!

It is a gorgeous day here today! The temp is 60 degrees and sunny! I can't wait for Spring to arrive!!

Here is the card I made for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS. I have been thinking about this one all day while I was at work. I bought this American Craft dp called Metropolitan the other day so I started with this for my inspiration. I went with the colors of Real Red, Basic Black and Baja Breeze. I used the images from Pocket Silhouettes for my three image squares. I stamped three of the images in the three colors and adhered them with pop dots, The panel underneath is just Basic Black with the scallop edge punch used and a Real Red. The sentiment was stamped in Tuxedo Black and I used SU oval punches. I stamped the one remaining images over the sentiment in Baja Breeze. I didn't add any embellies because I felt the dp was bold and busy enough.
I did the inside of the card also. I just went with a piece of WW and the dp with one edge of it with the scallop punch. I then stamped one of the images id Baja Breeze along the bottom.
Thanks for stopping by!

Color Challnege 207 and Clean and Simple 3

Good afternoon!

I made this card for two challenges on SCS today. The first one is for the Color Challenge to use Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun and Kiwi Kiss. These are such pretty colors together. The next challenge is for the new Monday challenge called Clean and Simple. This week it is a sketch.
I started with WW for my base and just layered the three colors. On the Kiwi Kiss I used Martha Stewarts Arch Lattice punch for the one side. I then used the CM corner punch for the other colors. The image was stamped in tuxedo black and colored in with Copic markers and then the leaves were colored in by using the ink pad of Kiwi Kiss and a blender pen. I stamped the sentiment if Pumpkin Pie and layered it on Kiwi Kiss punch out with the large SU oval punch. This is up on dimensionals. I then placed to Pumpkin Pie striped ribbon on the one side and layered the hydrangea Martha Stewart punch in the three colors. The main panel is also on dimensionals for some depth.

TLC 209 and MOJO 75


I made this card for two challenges. the first is for the Technique Lover's Challenge to use rubber bands and embossing powders. I used several bands and wrapped them around an acrylic block and stamped a piece of WW with versa mark and embossed with an emerald color powder. I then used Apricot Appeal ink to brayer on my color over the embossed areas. I left a distressed look. The sketch is the Mojo sketch for the week. I flipped it to accommodate my image. The frog and mushroom were stamped in tuxedo black and colored in with Copics. I cut out the frog and adhered him on top of the mushroom with a dimensionals. The image was then layered with the rectangle nesties. The flower image panel was stamped in tuxedo black and colored in the Copis too and then I added black brads for the centers. I used the arch lattice Martha Stewart punch for the edging on the bottom panel. The image panel is up on foam tape.

I went ahead and did the inside of my card too since I used Always Artichoke for my base card, I needed to put in a piece of white card stock so I could put in a message. I stamped the mushroom and colored it in with Copics and added a layer on the side for more decoration.

Featured Stmper 107 Sgtstampers

Happy Sunday everyone and you know what that means: Featured Stamper time on SCS.

Today's lucky stamper is Sgtstampers. I chose this card: Holiday Hello. We are to change at lest two things on the card. I changed the colors, image, moved the sentiment, embossed where the top ribbons were and the size of the card which is 4 x 4.
My base card is Cranberry Crisp with Kraft and Basic Black. The image was stamped in tuxedo black and colored in with Copics. This is a pretty straight forward card, I did not round the tops of the image panel, I wanted to keep a clean look.
Thanks for stopping by!

Clean and Simple 2


Here is another card for today. I saw that there is a new challenge on SCS to make Clean and Simple cards. this is the second one and we are to use a button. I found this plaid button in my stash of forgotten items!
I used Ridinghood Red and Whisper White. I stamped the sentiment from Garden Whimsey is tuxedo black and then I stamped the butterfly in RHR. I again stamped the butterfly in RHR and cut it out and adhered with a dimensional. The image was layered with the Label 1 nesties. I wrapped a ribbon around the white panel after I ran it through the cuttlebug with the swirls folder.

I stamped the cute little ladybug in RHR and layered it with the SU circle punches and adhered with a dimensional.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
