Live In The Moment

Good morning! How awesome is this warm weather we are getting now in the middle of winter?? I am so enjoying it!

Today I wanted to share my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper. We have a fun color challenge for you to play along with

Stamp Ink Paper Color Challenge #134

Here is the card I created using these colors

Live In The Moment

I started with a Berry Burst card base and then added a layer of Basic Black. For the top panel I used a piece of Whisper White cardstock and Distress Oxides Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, and Wilted Violet. To create the background I stamped each color individually on my craft mat and spritzed with water and then laid my cardstock panel on it to pick up the color letting it dry in between each color. You can create suck amazing backgrounds with the Oxide inks! Next I used the stamp set Live In The Moment from Visible Image and stamped the sentiment in the lower left using Stazon black ink. To finish I stamped the dragonfly, from the same set, on a piece of scrap white paper with versamark and heat embossed in black and then colored it in with Berry Burst ink and a water brush pen. After that dried I fussy cut it and popped it on my panel using dimensionals. This was a super easy and fun card to make!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂

Good morning! First I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year! Do you have any crafty new year goals? My goals for this year is to make and send at least 10 birthday cards a month. I also want to make at least 5 Christmas cards a month so I will be finished and ready to mail them all by the beginning of December. So to start this year off I have made a masculine birthday card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper. Our first challenge for 2018 is all about embossing. Here is the inspiration

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #131 Emboss It!I love all the different ways you can use embossing but for my card today I chose an embossing folder. Here is what I created

Adventure

I started with a kraft card base and added a layer of Basic black. For the next layer I used a piece of kraft and embossed using the Tim Holtz Travel Signs folder and then distressed the embossed portions with Vintage Photo ink and added this layer on top of the black. Next I embossed a piece of silver foil paper with the folder and die cut the center with a circle framelit and adhered this on top of the kraft embossed layer lining up the words. I used black soot ink and distressed the foil layer. To finish my card I stamped the train image by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps, and colored in using my copics and then fussy cut and added to my card front using dimensionals.

You can find the train stamp here http://blueknightrubberstamps.com/antique-train/.
