SIP Challenge #84 Tic-Tac-Toe

Good morning!  Today I’m sharing my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week we have a fun Tic-Tac-Toe challenge for you. Here is the inspiration 


I choose the diagonal row with Die Cut, Circular Element and Sequins. 

Here is the card I made 


I know Christmas is gone and past but I couldn’t resist coloring up this cutie from The Greeting Farm.

For this card I choose to make a 5×5 card. I started with a Pacific Point card base and then a layer of Real Red.  For the next layer I used a piece of Whisper White and stamped several snowflakes and then distressed with Marina Mist ink.  Next I die cut one of the large circle scallops in Basic Black and looped a piece of Poppy Parade stitched ribbon through two of the scalloped holes and then wrapped around the white and red layers.  For the main piece I die cut a Stitched circle out of Whisper White and stamped the girl, Holiday Anya 2 from The Greeting Farm, and colored her in with Copics. To finish I stamped a couple snowflakes and added some sequins. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Until next time 

Stay warm and Happy Stamping ๐Ÿ™‚

Special Day

Good morning! I wanted to share with you today the card I created for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week we have a fun Sketch for you 


Here is what I created using this Sketch


I started with a Whisper White card base and then added a layer of black that I die cut using Gina Marie’s rectangle dotted stud dies and then a layer of Coastal Cabana recessed in the black layer.  Next I die cut the black circle using the circle dotted stud dies. For the inside of the black circle I die cut a piece of the SU Inside The Lines dsp and colored the flower with the coastal cabana blendabilities and the leaves with copics. I then die cut the bumble bee in black cardstock and popped him on the side of the flower. I then layered this piece on top the black circle and added to my card on the lower left side. Next I stamped the sentiment from SU Dragonfly Dreams above the circle on the coastal cabana layer. To finish I die cut the dragonflies from the coordinating thinlets and used Inka Gold Metallic rubs to color them and then added them above the main image. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Special Friends

Good morning! Along with the warmer weather we are having we are getting lots of rain. So what better way to spend a rainy day than playing in my craftroom with new goodies! 

I wanted to share my card I made for the design team over at Firefly Crafts.  This month I got to play with a set from Penny Black.  Here is what I created today


I just adore this set Mimi’s Love!! 

I started with a SU Lucky Limeade card base and then added a layer of burlap. For the next layer I took a piece of Basic Black and heat embossed the sentiment (from the Mimi’s Love) in white on the upper right and attached this piece to the burlap layer.  Next I created three layers of landscape, using the Poppystamps stitched landscape dies, and inked sponged them with SU Lucky Limeade and Old Olive inks, layered them together and added to the bottom of the black layer cardstock. Now I stamped the Tree Ring (Concord and 9th) onto watercolor paper with StaZon black ink and colored in with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink.  Once that dried I fussy cut it and added it to my card front. For the tree I die cut that using the Cottage Cutz Tall Tree die on white cardstock and colored with copic markers and then assembled the tree and added it on top the tree ring on the left side. Now is when I get to play with Mimi’s Love!! I stamped the scene with the deer using Momento black ink onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with copic markers and then fussy cut the scene and added this piece on top of the tree and tree ring.  For the final touch I stamped several more of the mushrooms from the scene and colored them in and fussy cut and added to my card across the Landscape hills. 

Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my creation.

Would You Be Mine

Good morning! I hope you have had the nice break in the weather that we have. I know it will be be short lived but I am loving it! Today I wanted to share my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper this week. This challenge is all about Natural Elements and here is the inspiration 


The possibilities are endless with this theme. I tossed with the ideas of burlap, wood or a water scene and finally decided with wood. I recently purchased the tree ring stamp from Concord and 9th and wanted to use it for my card. Here is what I created 


I started with a Basic Black card base and then added a layer of Whisper White that I splattered with red and brown using Wink of Stella pens. Next I took the tree ring and stamped it with StaZon onto watercolor paper and then colored it using my watercolor brush and Tim Holtz vintage photo ink.  After that dried I fussy cut the image and cut the heart out in the center using a framelit die from Gina Marie designs and then added a piece of red cardstock on the back.  I then die cut a black arrow using my Little B die and cut it in 2 pieces and added it to the tree ring on the edges of the heart center and added this piece to the card. To finish I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin Up set Would You Be Mine in the lower right. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. 

Until next time

Love That Face

Good morning! I hope you are warm and comfy on this blistery cold day. The reality of Winter has set in and I am ready for spring.

I wanted to share with you today our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.  We have a color challenge for you to play along with and here is the inspiration

For my card I choose to add the color red


I started with a Whisper White card base and added a layer of black. The next layer is a piece of red canvas that I frayed on the edges. Next I took the image from the Unity set Love That Face and stamped her on Whisper White using StaZon black ink and then die cut it with a circle scalloped stitched die from Gina Marie.  I outlined the stitch marks with a red pen and then layered this on top the canvas. I stamped the sentiment from the same Unity set and edged with red ink and added it to my card using dimensionals. To finish I added a few dots of distress Stickles.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Until next time

Quilted Hello

Hello! I am here today to share with you my design team card for Firefly Crafts.  On this cold and rainy day we are having all I wanted to do was crawl back into bed and curl up with my quilt. So I was inspired to use my Gina Marie quilt die for my card. 

Here is what I created 


How aweosme is that die!! I used SU Whisper White for my card base and then added a layer of SU Cheerful Treat DSP using the solid purple side.  Next I die cut the quilt with a piece of Whisper White and removed all the inside pieces and glued down the outline piece on top of the purple layer. Now I die cut the quilt using a piece of the DSP and used the inside pieces to fill in the outline piece on my card.  This is such a fabulous die to use up all that hoarded DSP ! For the sentiment I die cut the Hello from the SU Hello Thinlets using the same dsp three times and glued them together for added dimension and adhered it to my card. Now I used glossy accents and covered the inside purple pieces and the sentiment. After that dried I added a white flower to the center. 

Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my creation.

SIP Challenge #80 – Card Makers Choiceย 

Good morning! After a much needed break I am happy to be back creating with this amazing team at Stamp Ink Paper. And what a great challenge to come back to. Our new challenge is a Card Makers Choice! 


How fun is that to be able to choose whatever your hearts desire is!

Here is what I created 

I started my card with a Kraft card base and then added a layer of purple that I distressed on the edges.  For the main layer I took a piece of SU Whisper White and stamped the girl from the Unity set God’s Sight in memento black and colored her in using my Copics.  I then sponged the edges of this with SU Cool Caribbean.  Next I took another piece of Whisper White and cut it to 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 and used the SU tag topper to create the tag.  I then stamped the sentiment from Paper Inspirations using StaZon black ink.  I distressed the edges of the tag in Cool Caribbean as well.  To finish I tied a piece of SU Crumb Cake Tulle in the tag opening and added a flower to it and then added the tag to my card using dimensionals. 

Thank you so much for stopping in today. I hope you have been inspired to play along with us this week. 

Until next time
