SIP Inspiration Challenge #44


Good morning!  What a gorgeous day we had yesterday.  Hope yours was just as beautiful. It’s Tuesday and that means we have another challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week we have a Nautical theme for inspiration

SIP Nautical Inspiration Challenge #44

Here is what I created from this inspiration

By The Tide

I was inspired by a card I seen on Pinterest and wanted to use the SU set By The Tide which will be retiring when the new catalog comes out.

I started with a Pumpkin Pie card base.  The next layer is Lucky Limeade and then a layer of Marina Mist that I stamped the Hardwood background stamp in Stazon black ink and then distressed the edges in black.  I distressed a piece of  cheesecloth with TH Vintage Photo ink and then wrapped it around these two layers and then attached to my card base.  Next I die cut 3 layered circles using my framelits from MFT, the largest in Lucky Limeade, the middle in Basic Black and the smallest in Whisper White.  On the white circle I inked it with Soft Sky and Marina Mist using a direct to paper technique and then stamped the reef in both Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze.  Now I layered all three together and added a clear window on top of the smallest circle and then attached these to the card front.  I used my copper pearl pen and created the rivets on the largest circle.  Next I stamped the fish, lobster and shell on watercolor paper using Stazon black ink and then die cut them using DiesbyDave framelits. Using a blender pen and the following colors, Pool Party, Soft Sky, Marina Mist, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Lucky Limeade I colored in all the images.  After they were completely dry I used Glossy Accents on them and then allowed that to dry and added them to my card front using dimensionals.  To finish I stamped the sentiments from the set By The Sea Sentiments from MSE on Pumpkin Pie Cardstock and fussy cut them and added to the front using dimensionals.

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

SIP Sketch Challenge #39

Good morning! It’s Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper. This week our inspiration comes from a sketch

SIP Sketch Challenge #39

Here is what I created from this Sketch

Gorjuss Girl The White Rabbit

I started my card with a Marina Mist card base.  The next two layers are papers from Santoro and then I added a burlap flag banner.  For the next layer I used a piece of watercolor paper and Tim Holtz distress stains Seedless Preserves, Peeeled Paint and Broken China  and created the background and then stamped the flowers from  a DoCraft set in Stazon black ink and then placed that piece on top of the burlap flag. Next I stamped the Gorjuss girl, The White Rabbit, in Stazon black on a piece of watercolor paper and colored her using distress stains and then fussy cut and placed on the background using pop dots.  To finish I stamped the sentiment Hello Love from the set Good Greetings.

SIP Challenge #37 Wood, Cork, Felt


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

SIP Challenge #37 Wood, Cork, Felt

I don’t know about you but I love using natural elements on my cards! I choose to use cork and felt. This is what I created

Thinking of You

I started with a Midnight Muse card base.  Next I made a mask for the moon from a sticky note using a 3/4 circle punch.  Now I cut a layer of Whisper White and placed the moon mask in the upper right hand side and sponged around the mask with YoYo Yellow and Pumpkin Pie.  To create the blue sky background I sponged starting in the center with Marina Mist and then further out with Pacific Point and then in the outer edges with Midnight Muse and then I added this layer to my card base.  Next I die cut the trees from adhesive backed cork and then placed that on top of the sponged layer. Now I die cut the deers from Basic Black cardstock and tucked them behind the trees and then die cut the birds out of red felt material and adhered them in the trees.  To finish I stamped the sentiment from the set Moon Lake on to Whisper White and fussy cut and adhered it to a piece of black felt and attached to my card.

All of the dies I used in my card are from Gina Marie and you can find them here http://wholesalecraftingsupplies.com/t/-gina-marie-designs-?page=1

SIP Challenge #25 Card Makers Choice

Good morning! I had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope you all did too! It’s Tuesday again and that means we have another challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week our challenge is a card makers choice. Who doesn’t love that kind of freedem!

SIP Challenge #25

This is what I came up with

Festive Wreath

I started with a Real Red card base and then a layer of basic black. Next I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the tree in Old Olive from Lovely As A Tree twice, one higher than the other. I then sponged Marina Mist on the upper portion to create a sky and then embossed this using the Softly Falling folder. Next I die cut the lamp post using a die from Gina and then I stamped the wreath from Festive Fireplace in Old Olive and die cut it with the matching dies. I hung the wreath from the lamp post and glued it down to the left side of the cardstock. Next I die cut the fence on Kraft cardstock and distressed in Vintage Photo ink, I don’t have the packaging anymore so I’m not sure of the manufacturer.  I placed the fence at the bottom and then added the merry sentiment that I die cut in red vellum and whisper white layered from the Christmas Greetings thinlets. To finish my card I colored the area behind the lamp with yellow and made a small bow using the Poppy Parade stitched poly ribbon and placed it in the middle of the wreath.

I hope you have enjoyed my card this week. Come play along with us this week! I can’t wait to see what everyone creates!

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂
