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 Challenge #47 – One Element Wonder

Good morning! First I would like to say that I hope all you mothers out here in the blogging world had a wonderful Mothers Day. It’s Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper.

This is our inspiration

SIP Challenge #47 One Wonder Element

For this challenge I wanted to use a new set I just purchased from SU called Picture Perfect. Here’s what I created

Picture Perfect

I started with a Tenpting Turquoise card base and then added a layer of Basic Black.  Next I took a piece of watercolor paper and using a water brush flicked Tempting Turquoise and Pool Party randomly on it and then added some black specks using a black Wink of Stella pen.  Next on a piece of scrap white paper I stamped the hummingbird, first in Pool Party then Tempting Turquoise and the final layer in Stazon black.  I fussy cut this image and added it to my card using dimensionals.  To finish I stamped the sentiments from the same set in Stazon black, Tempting Turquoise and Pool Party and cut the words out individually and backed them on black cardstock and added to my card.

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

Until next time

Happy crafting 🙂

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!

Until next time
