Celebrate

Good morning! Today I wanted to share my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper . We have a Food & Drink theme for this challenge. Here is the inspiration

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge 146 Food & Drink

The timing for this theme couldn’t have been better as I had just received my new TIm Holtz blueprint stamps!

Here is what I created

Celebrate

I started with a kraft card base that I distressed the edges with walnut stain ink. The next layer is a piece of SU Cucumber Crush, also distressed with walnut stain. The top layer is a piece of kraft that I die cut using the Tim Holtz Cabinet Card die and then embossed using the Tim Holtz wood grain folder and then distressed with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain inks. Now for the fun part! I stamped the beer bottle and beer mug stamps on Bristol Smooth Vellum cardstock with Stazon black ink. I then watercolored using distress inks in Lucky Clover and Scattered Straw. Once they were dry I accented them with glossy accents and added white snow paste to the foam area on the mug. After they had set up I fussy cut them and added to my card using dimensionals. To finish I stamped the sentiment on black cardstock with Versamark and then hear embossed with white and added above the drinks using dimensionals.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂

Wild Ride

Good morning! It’s Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper. This week our challenge is all about Birthday’s. Here is the inspiration

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge 144 - Birthday

Here is what I created

I started with a Basic Black card base and then added a layer of burlap paper. For the main layer I used a piece of gold foil paper and a technique called Black Ice. I used the Stampin Up set Country Livin for the truck and boots images and the set One Wild Ride for the sentiment. If you have never seen the Black Ice technique here is a good video tutorial by Melissa Kerman

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next tine

Happy Crafting 🙂
