SIP Challenge #63 Wonderful Wings

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 this challenge 


And here is what I created 


I came across a tutorial for making paper toile cards and fell in love with the results of that technique and had to give it a try. Well I have to tell you I am hooked on it! 

I started with a Crumb Cake card base and then my next layer is a piece off off white embossed with the SU script folder and then a piece of Tip Top Taupe lace ribbon around the center. Next is a layer of Taken With Teal added with pop dots. Next I took another piece of off white and stamped the En Francais background stamp in crumb cake and then stamped the SU Swallowtail stamp in Taken With  Teal.  Now for the fun part! I stamped the Swallowtail 3 more times on off white cardstock with Taken With Teal ink. I fussy cut the entire first image and lined it up on the original piece and trimmed it to match that image and then layered on top using pop dots. I then took the second image and fussy cut just the inner wings and added that on top using pop dots. And finally I took the third image and fussy cut just the thorax and added it using pop dots. I then added the completed piece to the teal layer. To finish I accented parts of the swallowtail with glossy accents. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you can play along with us for this challenge!

Until next time

Retro Rubber Challenge #46

Good morning! We have a new challenge over at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog and it’s all about critters!! Here is the inspiration for the challenge 


Here is what I created 


I choose Taken With Teal for my card base and then added layers of white and black. For the main layer I started with a piece of Whisper White and sponged with Taken Teal ink darkest on the outside layer to lighter towards the center. I then stamped all the images and sentiment from the SU set Wetlands that was released in 2013.  To finish I added a piece of ribbon around the left side of the black and main layer.  Super easy card to make!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have time to play along with us for this challenge. 

Until next time

SIP Sketch Challenge #62

And here is what I created

Calling All Heros

I started with a Basic Black card base and then a layer of Whisper White. For the next layer I started with another piece of Whisper White and sponged the background using Marina Mist, Pacific Point and Midnight Muse.  Next I stamped the buildings image from the Stampin Up set Calling All Heros on white cardstock using Stazon Black Ink and colored in the windows with a yellow marker and then fussy cut it and added it to my card. To finish I stamped the frame from the same set and fussy cut it and stamped the sentiment from a set by Ranger Dina Wakely Hand Written Sentiments and then added to the bottom of my card.

Retro Rubber Challenge #45 – Sketch

Good morning! I wanted to share with you my card for our new challenge over at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.  We have a great Sketch for our new challenge

Retro Rubber Challenge #45 - Sketch

Here is what I created

Oh Whale

I decided to use a SU set called Oh Whale from 2013. I started with a Buckaroo Blue card base and then added a piece of Whisper White that I sponged the top half with YoYo Yellow (masking off the sun) and bottom half with Buckaroo Blue. I then took a strip of white and stamped the waves and distressed in blue ink then added to the center of the sponged layer. Next I stamped and die cut the whale and tucked him in behind the waves and stamped the hearts in red. To finish I stamped the sentiment on white and using the Word Window punched it out and added to my card using dimensionals.

I had forgotten how fun this set was to play with!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you can play along with us for this challenge.

SIP Chanllenge 61 Tic-Tac-Toe

I choose the middle row and this is what I created

Sugar Hollow Tree

I started with a Pacific Point card base and then a layer of Kraft cardstock that I distressed with Vintage Photo ink.  I used my Gina Marie stitched hill dies and made the 2 layers of hillside. Next I stamped the SU Hardwood stamp in Early Espresso onto Kraft paper and then die cut it using the Heartfelt Creations Sugar Hollow Teee die. I stamped the image from the same set on a piece of Whisper White and colored in with my copics and then die cut using the die and snipped off the trunk and then layered this on top of the hardwood stamped image and added to my card sitting on top of the hills. To finish I stamped the sentiment from the same set with Stazon black ink.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! If you decide to play along with us for this challenge I can’t wait to see which items you choose to create with.

Until next time

Wonderland

I started with a Concord Crush card base and then added a layer of Almost Amethyst.  Next I took a piece of Whisper White and sponged it all over with Going Gray ink and then sponged the sky with Almost Amethyst, Wisteria Wonder and Concord Crush.  I then stamped the trees from the set Wonderland in Stazon black ink.  To finish I stamped the sentiment from the same set on white and then cut them out separately and sponged with Wisteria Wonder and added to my card.
