SIP Challenge #139 – Ribbon

Good morning! Although the weather is turning towards spring I wanted to use our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper to get some Christmas cards made. This week our challenge is all about ribbon

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #139 Ribbon

Here is the card I created

Merry Christmas

This is such an easy card to make. I started with a Real Red card base. Next I die cut 2 layers from a nesting scalloped dot die set in Whisper White. I adhered the larger layer directly on the card base and then added the smaller layer using dimensionals. Next I die cut the pines from the Stampin Up Pretty Pines dies in Lucky Limeade and glued them down in the upper left corner and added a bow in Real Red. To finish I die cut the sentiment in Real Red and glued down in the center.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂

Dream

Good morning! Today I’m sharing my card for the new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper. This week we have a fun Tic Tac Toe Challenge for you to play along with.

I picked the right side vertical row with Word Die Cut, Watercolor and Embossed. Here is what I created

I dream of warmer summer days spent in the beautiful country settings just like this image. It reminds me of where I grew up in West Virginia. This is what inspired my card.

I started with a Real Red cardbase. Next I used a piece of Bristol watercolor cardstock and stamped the Covered Bridge scene, by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps, using Versafine black onyx ink. I watercolored the scene in using my Zig Clean Color brush markers. To finish I die cut the Dream sentiment twice in Whisper white cardstock and glued together for dimension and then heat embossed in gold and attached to the front. This was a super easy card to make. The scenery stamps from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps are so detailed that with just a little bit of coloring you have a beautiful creation in no time at all!

Until next time

Oh Happy Day

Good morning! Today I’m sharing my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper this week. About this time of year we are starting to get cabin fever from being inside so much due to the winter temperatures. So this week we created cards that remind us of the warmer weather that will come with the change of seasons. Here is the inspiration

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #136 Cabin Fever

And here is my card I created

Oh Happy Day

Who doesn’t love a beautiful day at the beach??

I started with a kraft card base and then added a layer of Tempting Turquoise. For the main layer I used a piece of water color paper and stamped the Beach Scene, from BlueKnightRubberStamps, with StaZon black ink. I watercolored the sand and water sections using distress inks and a water pen. After that dried I went back and stamped the sand castle and sand toys and watercolored them. Next I stamped the logs on a scrap piece and watercolored them and fussy cut after it was dried. I added those in the sand using dimensions. Now on to the sky. Using a cloud stencil by Inkylicious and distress inks I created the clouds for the sky. This was my first attempt at creating clouds and although I’m not unhappy with it I know I definitely need to practice this technique! To finish I stamped the sentiment in the clouds using a set from Green Grass Stamps.

Until next time

Happy Stamping 🙂
