SIP Challenege #36 Card Makers Choice

Good morning! I hope you had a good weekend. We had beautiful weather with temps in the 70’s on Saturday. Come on Spring!!!

Its Tuesday and that means we have another challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week is a Card Makers Choice challenge. Don’t you just love that kind of freedom! Here is your inspiration

SIP Challenege #36 Card Makers Choice

My cards this week came from the inspiration of a card made by Maria Willis.

Rose Wonder

Rose Wonder

For both cards I used Whisper White as my card base and then a layer of Basic Black and a layer of Typeset dsp.  Next I die cut the Rose using the Rose Garden thinlet die in Basic Black cardstock and glued it down using Tombow glue.  For the top card I die cut the Rose again using red foil paper and Old Olive paper.  Using all the die cut pieces I paper pieced them into the Rose outline.  For the second card I filled the spaces in with red and green distress glitter.  To finish my cards I die cut the label in Basic Black and then stamped the sentiment, both from the Rose Wonder set, in Real Red on Whisper White and then using the small oval punch cut it out and placed it on the label and attached to the cards.

Here is a peek at the inside

Although I like them both the top is my favorite!  Thank you so much Maria for making such a beautiful card and inspiring me to create this too!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my cards and have been inspired to play along with us this week!

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂



SIP #33 Color Challenge

Good morning! We can finally see some ground after that massive snow storm we got last weekend here on the East Coast.  Did you get any snow from that storm?

It’s Tuesday and that means we have another challenge for you today over at Stamp Ink Paper.

This week we have a color inspiration for you

SIP #33 Color Challenge

This is what I created with these colors

Bloomin Hearts Be Mine

I started my card with a Real Red card base.  I didn’t have any gold cardstock so I used a scrap piece of paper and embossed it in gold for my next layer.  The top layer is a piece of Basic Black that I embossed with a Tim Holtz music folder.  Next I die cut the SU Bloomin Hearts in Real Red cardstock and then clear embossed it and layered it on my card and then added some gold flat back pearls on the flower parts of the heart.  To finish I stamped the banner and sentiment from the set Bloomin Love onto Kraft cardstock and then fussy cut it out and placed above the heart with pop dots.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed my card and you can come play along with our color challenge this week!

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂
