Stamp TV flower challenge

Supplies: Stamps: Gina K flowers, Amuse sentiment  Paper: Gina K white  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Accessories: Spellbinders die cuts to make the frame, swiss dots embossing folder, purple ribbon, copic markers

I used to participate in challenges on Stamp TV, and then I took a break from stamping.  Today I got an email from Stamp TV about a weekly challenge and thought I would give it a try.  The challenge is to use your favorite Gina K flower stamp on a card as we are welcoming spring.  I thought of this iris stamp, because I have so many perennials coming up including my dark purple irises.  I used my copic markers to color in the irises.  I made an embossed frame to define the flowers as my focal image.  I added some purple ribbon, (it isn't that dark in real life.)  Lastly I added a sentiment to complete the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

The clean and simple challenge on SCS is to add dimension to your card.  I chose to use dimensionals to pop up my focal image, and I added an embossed background to add dimension to my card.  I added a touch of color to the floral image to coordinate with my ribbon.  Thanks for stopping by!

Rain, Rain Go Away

Supplies: Stamps: Amuse  Paper: Lawn Fawn plaid, Gina K white  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Accessories: copic markers, SU embossing folder, American Crafts ribbon, copic multiliner

The theme for this week's CAS challenge on SCS is April Showers.  We sure have had a lot of rain where I live, and there's more on its way.  I'm looking forward to the rain bringing those May flowers.  I chose this sweet little girl and her umbrella for this challenge.  I stamped her and drew in a sidewalk with a copic multiliner, and then colored it in using copic markers.  I added some cloud ribbon and I was done.  

Thanks for stopping by!!

Happy Wishes

Supplies: Stamps: Lawn Fawn Our Friendship Grows and Happy Happy Happy  Ink: Archival black Paper: Gina K white and Strathmore Bristol watercolor paper  Accessories: Distress markers, waterbrush, Lawn Fawn stitched circle and Elizabeth craft designs stitched fish tails die cut, happy happy happy die cut

Sunday brings us the featured stamper challenge on SCS.  This week the featured stamper is Anita, and found inspiration from this card from her gallery.  Thanks Anita! :)  I loved the layout of her card and kept that the same.  I used different flowers that I watercolored with distress markers.  I also combined a die cut sentiment with a stamped sentiment.  I kept my banner plain and added the stitched edge using the fish tail stitched die cut to coordinate with the stitched circle die cut.  

Thanks for stopping by!!

Fab Flowers Background

Supplies: Stamps: Lawn Fawn Happy and Fab Flowers  Ink: Lawn Fawn: wild rose, celery stick, carrot, fresh lavender, sunflower, doe, freshly cut grass, sugar plum

I made this card for the Free For All challenge on SCS: to create a floral stamped background.  I recently viewed Kristina Werner's card on You Tube and thought it would work for this challenge.  I didn't have all of the inks that she used so I improvised with the ink colors I did have, and pretty much copied her card design.  Thank you Kristina for your inspiration for this card!  

Thank you for stopping by!

Get Well Soon!

Supplies: Stamps: Lawn Fawn  Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Ranger classic cherry, and crumb cake  Paper: Gina K white and SU crumb cake  Accessories: copic markers, glossy accents, Lawn Fawn stitched circle die cut

I made this card for the SCS Ways to Use it challenge: That's What the Doctor Ordered and the Freshly Made Sketch.  I stamped the band aid to make the three lines of the sketch, and then used the other two images from the stamp set as the focal point.  I colored the focal images with copic markers and then added some glossy accents to the jar of medicine to make it shine like the glass of the jar.  I finished off the card using my Misti to stamp the sentiment to ensure a good stamp of the sentiment.
