Take Time To Make Your Soul Happy

Good morning! We have a new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper this week using a beautiful color palette.

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #152

I just love the look of these colors together! I have been wanting to do a galaxy page in my art journal after being inspired by a video from Tiffany Solorio. You can see it here https://youtu.be/GL186sHRe94

This is my finished pages

I used the same steps as Tiffany did except I used a 2 page layout. I started in the center with my paper blocks and worked them out to each side. I used the following products Finnabair clear and heavy white gesso, Star stencil and texture paste, Lindy Stamp gang sprays in Tainted love teal, Sweet violet purple and Lucky shamrock green and Tattered Angels Raven, Prima Sparks paint in Unicorn’s Hair and Fairy Wings, Santoro Gorjuss Girl The White Rabbit, Copic markers and a Moon face digital image.

I had so much fun creating these pages!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂

Have Some Spooky Fun!

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 about Fancy Folds. Here is the inspiration

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #150 Fancy Folds

And here is my card

Have Some Spooky Fun

I used the Double Z Fold technique for my card. I used a reference sheet from Beth Adams for all the dimensions for cutting and scoring. Here is her reference sheet

Double Z Fold Card Dimensions by Beth Adams

My card base is Basic Black and the first layers are Tangerine Tango. The top layers are Whisper White that I sponged the backgrounds on using Stampin Up inks in Tangerine Tango, Yo Yo Yellow, Marina Mist, Midnight Muse and Concord Crush. For the right side panel I masked the moon shape before sponging the background. I used the following stamp and dies to create the scenes – Stampin Up Spooky Fun, Home Sweet Home, Star of Light and the Duet Banner Punch.

The possibilities are endless with this fold card. So many cute and amazing scenes you can create.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Graduation Congrats

Good morning! Today we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper. This challenge is all about Dads and Grads and here is the inspiration

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #149 Dads and Grads

With another year of school wrapping up I chose to make a graduation card.

Graduation Congrats

I love punch art and have always wanted to create these adorable owl graduation cards I have seen so this was the perfect time to give it a go! I used the following colors of cardstock – Close to Cocoa, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Whisper White and Crumb Cake. I used the following punches – 3 inch scalloped circle for the body and wings, Top Note Die for the head, 1 1/4, 1 and 3/4 inch for the eyes, 1 1/4 inch square for the hat, 1 inch square for the beak and the large oval for chest. For the diploma I used a 1 inch piece of Whisper white rolled up and tied a piece of ribbon around it.

If you haven’t ever played around with punch art you should definitely try it out. It’s so much fun and the possibilities are endless. I love to explore Pinterest for punch art ideas!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂
