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#34 Love Challenge

Good morning! We are getting more of that white stuff here in Virginia this morning and we still have some from that massive storm we got a little over 2 weeks ago! Ok on to more happy things

It’s Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week our inspiration is Love

SIP #34 Love Challenge

Here is what I created

Love Is In The Air

I started my card with a Real Red card base.  The next layer is a piece of Whisper White embossed with the Square Lattice emvossing folder and a piece of real red ribbon wrapped around the middle.  Next I die cut 3 hearts from the SU heart framelits.  On the largest heart I stamped the En Francais background stamp in Real Red ink, the middle heart I embossed with the Square Lattice folder and the smallest heart I stamped the image from the set Take It To Heart in Real Red ink.  I layered all the hearts and attached them to my card and then placed a bow I made with the Real Red ribbon to the left of the hearts.  To finish I stamped the banner in Real Red ink from the new set called Bloomin Love and then stamped the sentiment (masking off the heart) inside the banner.  I fussy cut the finished banner and using pop dots placed it on my card in the lower left side and then using the mini heart punch cut a heart out of a piece of Real Red cardstock and placed it right above the banner.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my card today.  If you feel inspired please go to Stamp Ink Paper and enter your creation. I would love to see what you create!

Until next time

SIP #33 Color Challenge

Good morning! We can finally see some ground after that massive snow storm we got last weekend here on the East Coast.  Did you get any snow from that storm?

It’s Tuesday and that means we have another challenge for you today over at Stamp Ink Paper.

This week we have a color inspiration for you

SIP #33 Color Challenge

This is what I created with these colors

Bloomin Hearts Be Mine

I started my card with a Real Red card base.  I didn’t have any gold cardstock so I used a scrap piece of paper and embossed it in gold for my next layer.  The top layer is a piece of Basic Black that I embossed with a Tim Holtz music folder.  Next I die cut the SU Bloomin Hearts in Real Red cardstock and then clear embossed it and layered it on my card and then added some gold flat back pearls on the flower parts of the heart.  To finish I stamped the banner and sentiment from the set Bloomin Love onto Kraft cardstock and then fussy cut it out and placed above the heart with pop dots.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed my card and you can come play along with our color challenge this week!

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂

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 🙂
