Second Post today:
Joy at the House That Stamps Built challenged us to use some scraps and leftovers from other projects for the Designer’s Choice Challenge. I had some vellum with some black and yellow CS's lying on my desk. I decided to stamp the vellum with a Repeat Impressions Butterfly using versamark and heat embossed with Black EP. After fussy cutting the image I attached it with a foam dot to the yellow CS already cut to the right size. I embossed the mat with Cuttlebug EF Leafy Branch before adding the image and stamped the Repeat Impressions sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I simply added that to the Black CS that I had leftover on my desk.
Hello! The focus of this card is a digital Image of Santa that I had saved in my files but do not know the source. After printing the image, I distressed the edges with a distress tool and ink. I assembled the card following the sketch from Sketch Saturday beginning with a card base of light gold CS, a layer of Green Pattern Paper and stripes of 2 other patterns, all patterns from Crate Paper Peppermint and Snowy Day pads. Added a sprig of holly (stamped with Flourishes Stamp and fussy cut) on top of a bit of pine bough ( Impression Obsession die cut) when I attached the image. I added some twinkle in Santa's eyes with Wink of Stella. Maybe you can see it if you enlarge the photo.
Hello! Thanks for stopping by. Today I am sharing a quick Christmas card using only 2 colors and heat embossing with Gold EP. I stamped the Tree and Sentiment from GKD Very Merry Christmas by Theresa Momber in Versamark on GKD Cranberry Tart and used a GKD Gold Metallic CS Mat and a Card Base of the Cranberry Tart. I wove in a ribbon of Red Velveteen with Gold Edging and tied on a simple bow to finish.
Hello! I started this card last week when I first saw the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch challenge but it took awhile to decide how I wanted to assemble the card using the Gold butterflies that I cut and embossed with Cheery Lynn die cuts. I also took inspiration from a card that I made a couple years ago shown below. Other supplies used were Red CS, Gold Metallic CS, Pattern Paper from Teresa Collins World Traveler Pad, Versamark, Gold EP, Paper & Such Stamps, Paper Lace from K&CO,
Hello! I am here today with a quick post....have to get some leaves raked and get ready for Trick or Treaters this afternoon. I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches to create this Christmas Card using a snowman stamp and sentiment from Heartfelt Creations. I stamped the snowman head with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white CS and colored with Copics R59,BG72,75,B0000, N4,7 and an orange marker. Added some Clear star for shine on cheeks. Fussy cut the image and placed on a Kraft oval embossed with Darice Snowflakes and sponged with teal. Following the sketch, I used pattern papers from Fancy Pants Timbergrove pad to assemble card. Used Cuttlebug EF Herringbone to emboss one of the patterns. I added the sentiment stamped on Kraft label die cut stamped in Memento Teal Zeal and a snowflake cut with a Sizzix die and covered with Stickles Frosted Lace.
I'm back.... with another Vintage Halloween Card made with a Digital image from Magic Moonlight Studio. This was printed and matted on yellow CS that was embossed with Cuttlebug EF Forest Branches and inked with Red Ink. I placed this on a Card Base of Kraft CS and added strip of ribbon, border of black drippy goo ( Martha Stewart punch), and bats ( Plumrose Lane digis). I used Wink of Stella on the Cat's eyes and whiskers and the pumpkin eyes and mouth.....looks great in real life but not so much in the photo.
Hello! For this Vintage Halloween card, I have used a Vintage image of the cat on a pumpkin from Plumrose Lane that I sized and printed and then fussy cut. I arranged that with vintage looking pattern paper from Echo Park The Apothecary Emporium pad, 2 of which I cut with Cheery Lynn Swedish Spring Oval Frame doily die. The card base is Slate gray CS layered with another pattern from the same pad. I placed some Kraft CS under the doily with the image before adhering to the card. Added a black Olive branch cut with Cheery Lynn die, some red ribbon to the cat and glossy accents to the pumpkin. Colored the cat's hat red with a Copic. Attached a Kraft tag stamped with MFP's stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black.
Just for fun, I made this Halloween Lantern using the Cameo to cut a Silhouette file from Black Cardstock, Orange CS and Yellow Vellum and assembled with Scor-tape. Each side has a different design. I used it with a battery operated flickering candle.
Welcome! Today I am back with another Christmas Card which I created with Non-traditional Christmas Colors. My inspiration was the Merry Monday Challenge to do just that --create with Non-Traditional colors. I began by heat embossing the Festive Frame from Melanie's GKD stamp set on White GKD CS with Gold EP and colored in the design with Memento Markers Pear Tart, Angel Pink, Rose Bud, and Rich Cocoa. I filled in with Copic Gold Marker. I trimmed the frame and attached to a mat of GKD Bubblegum Pink CS and then to a card base of GKD Jelly Bean Green. For the sentiment I heat embossed it on an oval of Bubblegum Pink with Gold EP and did the edge of the oval as well. I attached this to the center with foam dots.
Challenges: Merry Monday: #131 Challenge Use Non- Traditional Christmas Color Stamp TV: Mix it Up Monday Challenge Christmas Comes Early Addicted to Stamps: Challenge #118 Holiday Mod Squad Challenge: Judy's Challenge is to create your most very favorite kind of card. I guess my favorite cards include heat embossing and coloring. I am always fascinated by watching the heat transpose the EP, especially gold powders. Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra: Anything goes for Christmas. Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge: Use something new or never used. I did not think this would qualify for Hazel's challenge but I have never used these colors or papers for a Christmas Card so I guess I qualify.
Good Morning! I said to myself that I would not make any
Halloween cards this year because I have so many in my stash that I
do not need any more. But Halloween cards are so much fun that I gave in and had to make this one for Simon Says challenge. We are to use the colors in the graphic shown on the right. I used stamps from MFP's Boo To You and papers from my stash. Dracula was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with YG03, V15, E51, 100 and re pencil. Memento Grape Jelly and Tangelo inks were used for the sentiments. I embossedeach strip with borders from Cuttlebug Pop Culture EF. The drip was punched with Martha Stewart border punch.
