SIP Challenge #50 – Sketch

Good morning! I hope you all had a safe and happy holiday weekend. It’s Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week we have a fun sketch for you

SIP Challenge #50 -Sketch

I decided to use this sketch for the card I made for my boyfriend thanking him for his service he spent in the Army.  I would also like to thank all service men and women who are currently serving and those who have served in the past.  Here is the card I made

For Your Country

I started with a Mossy Meadow card base.  The next layer I created by using a panel of Whisper White stamped with the World Map background stamp and then distressed with Tim Holtz Vintgae Photo ink.  Next I die cut a stitched circle in Whisper White and sponged starting at the bottom with Mossy Meadow, YoYo Yellow and then Pumpkin Pie and then stamped the image from For Your Country in Stazon Black ink.  To finish I stamped the tags from the same set in Stazon Black onto Kraft Cardstock and fussy cut the image and then stamped the sentiment on white and cut the words separately and placed in the tags and tucked this piece behind the main image.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my card this week.

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂



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

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

Happy Crafting 🙂
