SIP Color Challenge#48

Good morning! I hope your week has been off to a good start. It’s Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week is a color challenge and here is your inspirationSIP Color Challenge #48

I had so much fun creating with these colors. I have seen so many awesome shaker cards lately I decided I wanted to make one for this challenge.  Here is what I created

By The Tide

I don’t make many square cards and I’m not sure why because I really do love them! So for this card I started with a SU Chocolate Chip card base.  Next using my square stitched dies from Gina Marie I made my window border and then attached a piece of acetate to the backside covering the entire area.  Now I took a piece of SU Whisper White and stamped the reef image from the SU set By The Tide and then sponged Calypso Coral around the reef and Pool Party around the rest of the piece.  Next I stamped the seahorse from the same set and the sentiment from the SU set Wetlands.  To make this a shaker card I used foam mounting tape and placed it completely around the border of my stamped piece and then added sequins chunky glitter in the center then removed the backing from the mounting tape and placed the stitched border on top and pressed over all the edges to secure it to the mounting tape.  To finish I stamped the seashell from the set By The Tide in Chocolate Chip and then die cut it using my Dies by Dave die and sponged it with Calypso Coral ink and added it to my card front using dimensionals and then added my finished card front to my card base.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Hope you can join us this week to play with these great colors!

Until next time

SIP #35 Sketch Challenge

Good morning! It’s Tuesday and that means we have another challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week our inspiration comes from a sketchSIP #35 Sketch Challenge

Here is what I created

I Love You A Latte

I just recently purchased the Coffee Talk collection from Heartfelt Creations and was so excited to use it for this challenge! I started with a Chocolate Chip card base and for the next layer I took a piece of Very Vanilla and stamped the coffee beans around the edges.  The next layer is from the Coffee Talk paper collection.  The next layer is a  2 1/2 X 3 1/2 piece of Chocolate Chip.  Now I took a piece of natural cotton ribbon and stamped the coffee beans on it and then wrapped it around the three layers and then adhered these to the card base.  Next I stamped the coffee cup and the I Love You A Latte sentiment onto Very Vanilla cardstock with Chocolate Chip and Bordering Blue inks and then die cut with the coordinating dies.  I colored the flowers on the coffee cup with my Bordering Blue marker and also coated the sentiment in Glossy Accents and then added both those to my card.  To finish I stamped the spoon with versamark and embossed with silver on grey cardstock and then die cut with the coordinating die and added to my card using pop dots.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed my card today and have been inspired to play along with us this week.

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂
