SIP Challenge #61 Tic-Tac-Toe

Good morning! It’s Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week we have a Tic-Tac-Toe board for you to choose the items you would like to make a card with.

SIP Chanllenge 61 Tic-Tac-Toe

I choose the middle row and this is what I created

Sugar Hollow Tree

I started with a Pacific Point card base and then a layer of Kraft cardstock that I distressed with Vintage Photo ink.  I used my Gina Marie stitched hill dies and made the 2 layers of hillside. Next I stamped the SU Hardwood stamp in Early Espresso onto Kraft paper and then die cut it using the Heartfelt Creations Sugar Hollow Teee die. I stamped the image from the same set on a piece of Whisper White and colored in with my copics and then die cut using the die and snipped off the trunk and then layered this on top of the hardwood stamped image and added to my card sitting on top of the hills. To finish I stamped the sentiment from the same set with Stazon black ink.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! If you decide to play along with us for this challenge I can’t wait to see which items you choose to create with.

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂

Retro Rubber Challenge #44

Good morning! We have a new challenge up over at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.  The inspiration for this challenge are these awesome colors Retro Rubber Challenge #44

I decided to use one of my Unity stamps.

Keep It Simple

I started with a Pacific Point card base and then added a layer of Lucky Limeaid.  I then took a piece of Whisper White and stamped my image and colored in with my copic markers.  Next I used some wink of Stella pens and flicked them on to create a splatter effect. To finish I stamped the sentiment using Stazon black ink.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

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

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

Until next time
