Dream

Good morning! Today I’m sharing my card for the new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper. This week we have a fun Tic Tac Toe Challenge for you to play along with.

I picked the right side vertical row with Word Die Cut, Watercolor and Embossed. Here is what I created

I dream of warmer summer days spent in the beautiful country settings just like this image. It reminds me of where I grew up in West Virginia. This is what inspired my card.

I started with a Real Red cardbase. Next I used a piece of Bristol watercolor cardstock and stamped the Covered Bridge scene, by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps, using Versafine black onyx ink. I watercolored the scene in using my Zig Clean Color brush markers. To finish I die cut the Dream sentiment twice in Whisper white cardstock and glued together for dimension and then heat embossed in gold and attached to the front. This was a super easy card to make. The scenery stamps from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps are so detailed that with just a little bit of coloring you have a beautiful creation in no time at all!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Oh Happy Day

Good morning! Today I’m sharing my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper this week. About this time of year we are starting to get cabin fever from being inside so much due to the winter temperatures. So this week we created cards that remind us of the warmer weather that will come with the change of seasons. Here is the inspiration

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #136 Cabin Fever

And here is my card I created

Oh Happy Day

Who doesn’t love a beautiful day at the beach??

I started with a kraft card base and then added a layer of Tempting Turquoise. For the main layer I used a piece of water color paper and stamped the Beach Scene, from BlueKnightRubberStamps, with StaZon black ink. I watercolored the sand and water sections using distress inks and a water pen. After that dried I went back and stamped the sand castle and sand toys and watercolored them. Next I stamped the logs on a scrap piece and watercolored them and fussy cut after it was dried. I added those in the sand using dimensions. Now on to the sky. Using a cloud stencil by Inkylicious and distress inks I created the clouds for the sky. This was my first attempt at creating clouds and although I’m not unhappy with it I know I definitely need to practice this technique! To finish I stamped the sentiment in the clouds using a set from Green Grass Stamps.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Adventure

Good morning! First I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year! Do you have any crafty new year goals? My goals for this year is to make and send at least 10 birthday cards a month. I also want to make at least 5 Christmas cards a month so I will be finished and ready to mail them all by the beginning of December. So to start this year off I have made a masculine birthday card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper. Our first challenge for 2018 is all about embossing. Here is the inspiration

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #131 Emboss It!I love all the different ways you can use embossing but for my card today I chose an embossing folder. Here is what I created

Adventure

I started with a kraft card base and added a layer of Basic black. For the next layer I used a piece of kraft and embossed using the Tim Holtz Travel Signs folder and then distressed the embossed portions with Vintage Photo ink and added this layer on top of the black. Next I embossed a piece of silver foil paper with the folder and die cut the center with a circle framelit and adhered this on top of the kraft embossed layer lining up the words. I used black soot ink and distressed the foil layer. To finish my card I stamped the train image by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps, and colored in using my copics and then fussy cut and added to my card front using dimensionals.

You can find the train stamp here http://blueknightrubberstamps.com/antique-train/.

Let It Snow

Good morning! Are you ready for a new challenge? To kick of December we have a Let It Snow challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.

Stamp Ink Paper Let It Snow Challenge #128

First I have some exciting news! I was contacted by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps and asked if I would like to design for them. I happily accepted!! For this challenge I used one of the stamps I received from them.

Let It Snow

I started with a Whisper White card base and then added a layer of Night of Navy followed with another layer of Whisper White that I wrapped a piece of Night of Navy Seam binding with. For the panels I stamped the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps tree image on a piece of Whisper White using Old Olive Ink. I then cut the image into 3 panels of equal size and backed each onto panels of Night of Navy. I attached the panels to my card front. Next I applied Glossy Accents to the tree baseline of each panel and then sprinkled iridescent ice. I then tapped off the excess and let this dry. When I tapped off the excess iridescent ice it left a light layer over the whole card front which ended up being a happy accident! As hard as I tried I could not get a picture that showed the shimmer but in person it’s really beautiful. To finish I stamped the sentiment on the lower right.

If you haven’t ever checked out Blue Knight Rubber Stamps head on over and see all the beautiful stamps they have!

Thinking of You

Good morning! Today I’m sharing my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper. We have a fun fall color challenge for you to play along with

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #125 Colors

And here is my card I created

Thinking of You

I started with a Kraft card base. Next I used another layer of kraft that I die cut with the Lawn Fawn stitched wood grain background die and then sponged all over with Early Espresso Ink and then die cut a circle out of the middle. For the layer behind this I used a piece of white cardstock and masked the moon off with a 1 inch circle and then sponged with Yo Yo Yellow and Really Rust inks. I then stamped the birds using a Stampscapes stamp in Stazon black ink. For the grass border I die cut using the Memory Box Green Pasture die in white cardstock and sponged with Old Olive Ink and then added at the bottom. I attached this piece behind the wood grain and then layered these onto my card base. To finish I stamped the sentiment on a piece of kraft and flagged one end with a punch and then sponged the edges with Early Espresso and added to my card using dimensionals.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Girls Night Out

Good morning! Today starts our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.  Who’s ready for a Girls Night Out?? Me me me!!! Well that’s the theme for our challenge this week!


And this is what I created 


This card was so much fun to make! I started with a Watermelon Wonder card base and then added two layers of dsp from a MME paper pad. For the main layer I stamped the Unity girl, from the Drink & Cuss set, onto Crafters Companion cardstock and colored her skin and hair in with my copics. Next I stamped the dress parts of her on scraps of the matching dsp and fussy cut them and glued down on the colored image. For the glass I stamped the image, from the same Unity set, on white cardstock and colored in with pink up to the word wine and then applied Glossy Accents over the whole image. After that dried I fussy cut it and added to my card using dimensionals. To finish I added some bling. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time
