SIP Color Challenge #54

Good morning! It’s Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper. This week we have an awesome color challenge.

SIP Color Challenge #54

Aren’t these the perfect summer colors! I decided to use a new set that I had not inked up yet.  Here is what I created

Beautiful Ride

I started with a Daffodil Delight card base and then added a piece of dsp that I wrapped a piece of Tangerine Tango ribbon on the left side.  Next I die cut a scalloped circle in Old Olive and then a smaller stitched circle in Whisper White.  I stamped the car and sentiment from the Stampin Up set Beautiful Ride on the white circle with Momento black ink and then colored in the car with the Tangerine Tango marker.  I layered the circles together and trimmed the right side and then added them to the card lining them up on the right side with the dsp layer.  To finish I made a bow with the Tangerine Tango ribbon and attached to the upper left side of my card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed my card this week.

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂

SIP Challenge 53 – Case The DT

Good morning! It’s Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper.  First I would like to thank everyone who played along with our challenge last week celebrating our one year anniversary! So this week we have another fun challenge because you get to case the design team.

SIP Challenge 53 - Case The DT

Here is the card I created

I started with a Whisper White card base. Next I cut a layer in Basic Black and then layered dsp cut in 3 different lengths allowing space for the black to show between each. I tied the ribbon around those layers and attached that piece to my card base. Next I die cut 3 circles in different sizes, the largest in black, the middle in white and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink, and then the smallest one in white and sponged the sun in with YoYo Yellow ink and the rest in Vintage Photo.  I attached all 3 circles together and then stamped the tree and sentiment from the SU set Thiughts and Prayers and added to my card.  To finish I punched 3 circles using a 3/4 punch in the white and distressed the edges with Vintage Photo and placed them towards the bottom and attached the buttons using a hot glue gun.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my card.

If you would like to play along with us this week head on over to Stamp Ink Paper and see what card you would like to case.

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂

SIP Challenge #52 - Card Makers Choice

For this challenge I choose to use 2 stamp sets that were recently gifted to me by 2 very special stamping friends. Here is what I created

Happy Birthday

I started my card with a Whisper White card base and then a layer of Melon Mambo.  Next I took a piece of watercolor paper and stamped the image from the set Blooming Garden by Penny Black in Stazon black and then watercolored using my Zig Clean Brush markers.  To finish I stamped the sentiment from the set Cake and Candles by Avery Elle in Stazon black on a piece of Whisper White and then layered that on a piece of Regal Rose and attached to my card.

I would like to give a shout out to Lisa Jones for the gorgeous Penny Black set! I can’t wait to skype with you and Sharon so we can learn to watercolor like she does!! I also want to shout out to Lorri Nichols for the awesome Avery Elle set! I love love all the fonts in this set.  This set will get so much use!! You ladies rock and are such an inspiration to me 🙂

SIP Challenge #51 – Sunsets

Good Morning!  It’s Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper.  Here is the inspiration for the challenge

SIP Challenge #51 - Sunsets

I absolutely love this inspiration. There isn’t anything more beautiful than a sunset except maybe a sunrise! Here is the card I created

Distressed Sunset

I started with a Basic Black card base and followed with layers in Only Orange and Yellow.  For my card front I used a piece of photo paper and sponged the background using the following Tim Holtz distress inks – Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Pickled Raspberry, Festive Berries, Shaded Lilac, Broken China and Chipped Sapphire.  For the ground I took a piece of torn paper and  placed it just below the sunset and then using StaZon black ink stamped directly on the paper creating a landscape. Next I stamped the tree image from Penny Black using StaZon black ink.  To finish I stamped the sentiment from the SU set Gifts of Kindness in yellow chalk ink.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed my creation this week and if you are inspired to play along with us I can’t wait to see what you create!

Until next time

Happy crafting 🙂
