SIP Challenge #56 – Christmas In July

Good morning!  This week we are celebrating Christmas In July over at Stamp Ink Paper.

SIP Challenge #56 - Christmas In July

Here is the card I created

Holiday Lineup

I started with a Whisper White card base and then a layer of Basic Black.  The next layer is Coastal Cabana embossed with a Darice snowflake embossing folder.  For my stamped image I used the Stampin Up set called Holiday Lineup.  I stamped the image with Memento Black on a piece of Whisper White and then colored in with markers and used Stickles to accent.  I layered this piece on top of layers of Coastal Cabana and Basic Black and then added these to my card.  To finish I stamped the sentiment on white and then punched it out with a oval punch and then layered this on a scalloped oval black piece and added this above the image on my card and then added 3 of my homemade enamel dots on the lower right side.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you can join us this week in celebrating Christmas In July!

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂

SIP Sketch Challenge #43

Good morning!  I hope you are enjoying this rainy spring day. It’s Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week our inspiration for you comes from a fun sketch

SIP Sketch Challenge #43

Here is what I created using this sketch

Stampin Up Traveler Birthday

I started with a Coastal Cabana card base and then a layer of Real Red. The next layer is a piece of Kraft Cardstock that I stamped with the Old World Map by Stampin Up (1998) in Stazon black ink. For my main image I used a piece of watercolor paper. I stamped the ship from the set Traverlers directly on the paper and then again on a piece of acetate, which I used to transfer the reflection image. I watercolored the water scene using Coastal Cabana ink and a water brush.  I used my Real Red marker to accent the boat. To finish I cut flag banners from Coastal Cabana and Real Red Cardstock and stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the set Guy Greeetings and added some of my homemade enamel dots.

I am also entering my card into the challenge this week over at RetroRubber Challenge blog for their April showers challenge.  You can see the challenge here http://www.retrorubberchallengeblog.com/my-blog/2016/04/challenge-36-april-showers.html

SIP #29 Sketch Challenge

Good morning! Can you believe it’s the start of a new year already?? To start the new year we have a sketch challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper. Here’s the sketch inspiration

SIP #29 Sketch Challenge

And here is what I came up with

I started with a Whisper White card base. I then cut the three flags from the SU dsp called Tea for Two and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz vintage photo ink and then placed them on my card base. Next I cut the the lacy oval in Coastal Cabana and popped it on the top over the flags and then cut another piece from the same dsp with a MFT stitched oval die and distressed it with Vintage Photo ink and placed it inside the lacy oval cut. Next I die cut the flourish in Whisper White and placed it in the center of the ovals. The sentiment is from SU Teeny Tiny Wishes and I stamped it on white and distressed with Vintage Photo ink and placed it on the inside to the right of the ovals. To finish I used the SU Beautiful Wings embosslit and cut the butterflies from the same dsp and placed the large butterfly on top of the flourish and the three smaller butterflies trailing up from the bottom of the card base up to the ovals. I used some perfect pearls to embellish the large butterfly.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my card for the sketch challenge.

I hope you can play along with us this week!

Until next time

SIP Challenge #27 Thank You Cards

Good morning! I hope everyone is enjoying this unseasonably warm weather I know I am! It’s Tuesday and that means we have another challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper

This week our inspiration is Thank You cards

SIP Challenege #27

This is what I created from the inspiration

Another Thank You

I started my card with a Coastal Cabana card base.  I embossed the card front with the SU Holiday Frame embossing folder.  Next I took a piece of Whisper White and cut the center out with the Window Frames collection framelits and then layered a piece of white organdy ribbon in the center and attached this piece to the card front.  Next I took the piece that was die cut and used the next smallest framelit from the window frames collection and die cut it again.  I then stamped the scribble stamp from Snuggles & Smooches in Coastal Cabana and then the Thank You sentiment in Stazon black on top of the scribble.  I placed black enamel dots on the four points of this piece and then using pop dots placed this in the center of the cut out opening on the card front.  To finish I tied a bow using the white organdy ribbon and placed it at the top of the die cut.

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

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂
