SIP Challenge #11 Tic-Tac-Toe

Good morning and thanks for stopping by! Today I am over at Stamp Ink Paper for the #11 Challenge.  Today our inspiration is from a Tic-Tac-Toe and here was our choices

SIP Challenge #11

Masculine cards are my favorite to make so I choose the column with Birthday, Masculine and Blue and this is what I created from those

The Open Sea Birthday Card

I started with a Night of Navy card base and then layered Soft Sky.  Next I layered with a piece of Riding Hood Red that I stamped with the Hardwood backgroud stamp to create wood planks.  For the ships wheel I punched a large circle in Whisper White and sponged Coastal Cabana and then accented with the stamp from Gorgeous Grunge in Cajun Craze to give the effect of rust and then layered the outer edge with the Tim Holtz Brads.  The next layer is cut from canvas and inked with Coastal Cabana with the edges inked in Cajun Craze and the same rust spots.  The inside is stamped with the ship from The Open Sea and colored with Prisma pencils and then punched with a circle punch.  The door hinges are cut from the Petite Curly label punch and accented with TH brads.  The door knob is created using punch art with the Modern Label punch and the Itty Bitty Shapes and Little Labels punch packs.  The banner was created with stamped images from The Open Sea and then die cut from the Hearts A Flutter framelits and then attached to two pieces of twine that i braided.  I hope you enjoyed my card and are inspired to play along with us!

Happy Crafting 🙂


SIP Week #10 Inspiration Challenge


Good Morning! Thank you for stopping by my blog.  Today I am over at Stamp Ink Paper with a Inspiration Challenge.  Im so excited as this is my first post as a designer with this group of incredibly talented crafters.  This was our Inspiration for this weeks creations by Lisa Altman.

SIP Week #10 Inspiration Challenge

When I seen this I instantly knew I wanted to make a mason jar card.  So here is what I created from this challenge.

Mason Jar Shaker Card

I started out with a Cherry Cobbler card base and then layered Baja Breeze.  The next layer is in two pieces, the left side in Always Artichoke and the right side is Soft Sky which I stamped with the SU CrossHatch background stamp.  I layered Old Olive Striped Organdy and Tim Holtz Lace Trimmings ribbons down the middle.  I heat embossed Thanks in black from the SU set For Being You on the Always Artichoke layer and then used bleach and a blender pen and bleached out the areas inside the letters which left it a gold/yellow color.  I then heat embossed the “for being you” in white on top of the Thanks.  For the mason jar I used  the set Summertime Charm from Lawn Fawn.  I stamped the jar and then die cut it and then using the label die from that set I made a shaker label.  I used a velvet gray paper and stamped the jar lid and fussy cut and attached to the jar.  And to finish my card I accented with a hemp cord bow and SU corduroy button.

Thank you for taking time to look at my creation and I hope this challenge has inspired you as much as it myself.



OSAT Blog Hop – Back To School

OSAT BH banner

Good morning. Today I am over at the OSAT Back To School blog hop. Can you believe it’s that time of year again?? I actually love this time of year. I love the excitement of the kids from school shopping to reuniting with friends/classmates they haven’t seen all summer. Not to mention the quiet time during the day now 🙂 hehe

For my card I used a House Mouse image that I coloured with my copics. My card base is Stampin Up YoYo Yellow and I then matted a piece of Coordinations Red cardstock that I embossed with an alphabet folder and then sanded over the letters. I embellished my card with some sequins and a paper clip with ribbon.

For my project I made a simple but really cute chipboard back to school mini album.  I used a paper collection from DCWV called Grade School.  I loved working with these super cute papers.
