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!

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.

Birthday Sketch





















Supplies: Stamps: Summer Soltice, Sentiment from Gina K  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Paper: Gina K black and white cardstock  Accessories: swiss dots embossing folder, piercing guide, paper piercer, dimensionals

This card's layout is from the sketch challenge on SCS.  I decided to pierce the card base for one of the layers of the sketch.  I also wanted to keep the card black and white so I decided to go with embossing for the side panel.  I went back and forth about coloring in the butterfly or stamping it in a color, but when all was said and done I went with no color to maintain the black and white look of the card.  Thanks for stopping by!  
Terri

I had to make another card with the butterfly colored in.  Which do you like better??  Now I am leaning toward the colored in butterfly.

Enjoy!

Supplies: Stamps: Dragonfly Dreams  Ink: Versamark  Paper: White cardstock and copper foil sheets  Accessories: copper embossing powder, detailed dragonfly, linen thread

I made this card for two challenges: CAS and Featured Stamper on SCS.  The featured stamper this week is PapercraftBoutique, and I chose this card of her's to CASE.  The CAS challenge was to use "winged things."  I used the inlaid die cut technique on this card using the copper foil paper, and then a white dragonfly on top.  This is inspiration I received from the featured stamper.  Then I added some linen thread and embossed my sentiment with copper embossing powder.  

Thanks for stopping by!!

Watercolor Thank You

Supplies: Stamps: Lawn Fawn Our Friendship Grows  Ink: Archival jet black  Paper: grey cardstock and white watercolor paper  Accessories: watercolor, Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die cut

I saw the Freshly Made Sketch and found inspiration in the layout.  I still had my sunflower stamp set out from my last card, and thought it would be great for the focal image of this sketch.  I stepped out of my comfort zone using watercolors instead of copic markers.  I started with a watercolor background, and then watercolored the sunflowers and cut them out.  I then die cut the panel with the stitched rectangle die cut, and adhered it to a grey cardstock base.  Thanks for stopping by!!

Supplies: Stamps: Lawn Fawn  Paper: patterned paper, black cardstock, white cardstock  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Accessories: copic markers, ribbon, Lawn Fawn stitched die cuts, black embellishments

I made this using the SCS sketch challenge this week.  I recently picked up the plaid paper at Joann fabrics and thought it would coordinate well with the sunflower.  I chose the cross stitch to go with criss cross pattern of the plaid paper.  Lastly,  I used my trusty copic markers to color in the sunflower.

Supplies: Stamps: Lawn Fawn  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Paper: Gina K white, Melon Mambo, Lawn Fawn plaid  Accessories:  Offray ribbon, Lawn Fawn twine, Lawn Fawn tag die cut, 1 1/18 inch circle punch

My Mom recently sent me a very cute card, and that is where I got the inspiration for this card.  I chose to make a card using her card because it had some string on it, and the CAS challenge this week on SCS is to use string.  I used the string to attach the tag to this card.

Spring Tulips

Supplies: Stamp:  Endless Creations  Paper: Gina K white  Ink: Gina K black  Accessories: Offray ribbon, Timeless Tags die cuts, Darice tulip embossing folder

It is Sunday again, and time for the featured stamper challenge on SCS.  This week's featured stamper is Linda aka bubblestx4.  I found inspiration to make my card from this card in Linda's gallery.  I used embossing and butterflies on my card just like Linda, and added a stamped sentiment and ribbon on mine.  I had a slight heart attack when I went to make this card.  I wanted to use the butterflies from the Timeless Tags die cuts and.......they......were.....missing.  Ahhh!  I had to take everything off of a shelf next to my desk to try to find them.  Then when I was just about done putting everything back onto the shelf I had a paper sleeve from one of the die cut sets.  When I picked it up out slid the butterflies.  Whew!  Sigh of relief!  I will definitely be keeping a closer eye on that little die cut.

Luck of the Irish

Supplies: Paper: DCWV glitzy paper pack, Gina K white  Accessories: Martha Stewart shamrock paper punch, Xyron

I do not have a lot of St. Patrick's Day stamping materials.  So I created a background using the punched out shamrocks, and highlighted one of them using the glitzy green paper.  I like how the white shamrocks give the card texture similar to an embossed effect.  I created a stack of shamrocks and glued them together with the glitzy green shamrock on top to give the focal shamrock some dimension.  Thanks for stopping by!

The second challenge that I made this card for is the Paper Players challenge.  It was to include die cut images onto your card.

Die Cut Birthday Card

Supplies: Paper: Gina K white, SU blue and orange, vellum, Lawn Fawn  Accessories: Lawn Fawn stitched circle and border die cuts, SU scallop circle punches, brad, linen thread, Sizzix Happy Birthday Die cut.

I made this for the sketch challenge on SCS.  I don't usually use vellum on  my cards, because it is hard to adhere without seeing the adhesive.  I ran it through my Xyron before die cutting it and it worked out really well!  I like how the vellum circle allows you to see more of the patterned paper.  I found this flower in one of my boxes, I had followed a tutorial and made a few.  The flower was the inspiration for this card.

The CAS challenge on SCS was to include chocolate onto your card.  I thought of these Amuse stamps right away!  For the frame I die cut a piece of fun foam to add dimension to the inlaid die cut.  I colored the images with copic markers and I used a silver pen to make the wrapper of the chocolate kiss.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Rainbow Birthday!

Supplies: Stamps: Amuse  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Paper: DCWV paper pack and Gina K white  Accessories: Technique Tuesday happy die cut

The CAS challenge on SCS was to use a sentiment only on your card.  I saw this technique from Jennifer McGuire on YouTube.  This is my attempt at it.  It went together quickly, I should have cut it down the middle in a different spot so the hook of the h would have been rounded like the end of the y.  I will remember that when I use this technique again.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Old Is New Again

Supplies: Stamps: Stampendous  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Paper: Gina K white  Accessories: ribbon, heart/dot embossing folder, SU stitched circle dies, wink of stella pen, copic markers

The CAS challenge this week was to find an old love themed card from your gallery and use the same stamp to create a card using your current style.  I tend to embrace the white space when creating my cards.  I added some texture with an embossing folder, allowing me to keep the card white.  I changed the color scheme to more of a red than using pink in order to match the ribbon.  This was a fun challenge, I will have to try this with other cards in my gallery!

I made this card for the sketch challenge on SCS.  I received this Gina K. set in the mail today, and thought I would give it some ink right away.  After I had blended the focal image I felt like it needed something.  I wanted it to look like dandelion seeds flying through the air.  So I spritzed on some water and I thought that gave it the effect I was going for.

Yesterday we went to visit my Mom for her birthday and made a stop at Gina K's retail store.  She had samples using this Hello Lovely set right as you walked in and I was hooked.  Inspiration for this card came from her examples, The Paper Players Challenge, and the featured stamper on SCS.  I cased this card as  I participated in this challenge.  I kept the layout the same.  I used a different stencil, solid flower stamps, and added a die cut in place of a sentiment.  I have to rave about these clarity brushes again, they really make blending so easy!

Supplies: Paper: Gina K black and white cardstock, yellow is Bazzill  Accessories: Timeless Tags Thinlits, scallop oval nestabilities, swiss dots embossing folder, dimensionals

The Paper Players challenge this week is a color challenge: Black, white, plus any color you choose.  I kept with my clean and simple style, and used the Timeless Tags again for my focal image.  I discovered that the scalloped oval nestabilities frame the Timeless Tags pretty closely and added this to my tag.  I added some texture with the swiss dots embossing folder and a little more black as a background to my white panel.

The CAS challenge on SCS is "Freeze."  This penguin image came to my mind right away.  I had picked this up with the matching sentiment at a craft rummage, and of course have never used it! ;)  Our hobby is so much about the shopping isn't it?!  
I added the embossed tag to make it look like the entrance to an igloo.  It is hard to see in the picture but I added glossy accents to the ice and the drink the penguin is holding.  Lastly, I added some liquid applique to make his pom pom extra fluffy!

Coppery Birthday

Supplies: Stamps: Stylized Birthday  Paper: Affectionately Yours, white cardstock  Ink: Versamark  Accessories: copper embossing powder, circle nestabilities, white sheer ribbon

I have to apologize for the picture of this card.  It is really hard to photograph a card when it has foiled paper on it!   The colors all look really off, but I assure you they are all coppery.  I didn't have any copper foil paper for behind the birthday greeting, so I made my own using the copper embossing powder I used on the greeting.
I made this card using the sketch challenge on SCS.

Coffee Anyone?

 Supplies: Stamps: Amuse and Lawn Fawn  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Paper: Gina K Heavy base weight white cardstock  Accessories: copic markers, ribbon, score pal, clear wink of stella marker, glossy accents
The CAS challenge on SCS today is "hot beverage."  I can't imagine starting my day without a cup of coffee, and I love this coffee to go mug stamp.  I added a heart from the Stinkin' Cute stamp set by Lawn Fawn to these coffee cups, applied clear wink of stella to the hearts, and then glossy accents on top.  I scored two lines above and below the ribbon to add some dimension.

Supplies: Stamps: Amuse coffee mug, sentiment ? I bought it at a craft rummage  Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Versamark, Tim Holtz distress inks  Paper: Old Olive and Tim Holtz watercolor paper  Accessories: dimensionals and detail white embossing powder.

I couldn't resist, I had to make another card for this challenge.  I watercolored the brown coffee background and then spritzed on some water to create the water splotches.  Then I stamped the coffee cup twice, cut them out and adhered one to the sentiment and popped the other one up next to it.  My sentiment was embossed on old olive cardstock to coordinate with the card base.  

Thank you for stopping by!

Birdie Birthday

Supplies: Stamps Mini Crazy Bird Set  Ink: Archival jet black, Versamark, Distress Inks: barn door, peacock feathers, and pumice stone  Paper: Tim Holtz watercolor paper, black cardstock by Gina K Accessories: detail white embossing powder, glossy accents, mini crazy bird die set, Tim Holtz birthday die cut, Tim Holtz dot fade stencil, white embossing paste, DCWV twine, paper piercer

Today's challenge on SCS is the Featured Stamper challenge, and the Featured Stamper is Pam.  I chose to CASE this card, and made the following changes: I used one layer for the card base, distress ink and embossing paste to create the "patterned" paper, and I used one layer for my die cut word.  This isn't my typical CAS card, it took me forever!  But it was fun to use so many different products on one card.  I added glossy accents to the balloon and the birthday word die cut.  To make it look like the bird was holding the balloon string I pierced a hole above and below his wing to thread the baker's twine through. And I love the texture that the embossing paste adds to the watercolored background.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Another Timeless Tag

Supplies: Stamps: That's The Tag  Ink: Riding Hood Red, Memento tuxedo black  Paper: Affectionately Yours, white, gumball green, and watermelon wonder  Accessories: Timeless Tags, metallic ribbon combo, linen thread, dimensionals, copic markers

The challenge over at SU! Only Challenges is to use your new "stuff!"  I used this Timeless Tag and That's the Tag combo on a card previously this week, and thought I'd try making a different variety of tag.  I like the look of the leaves behind the flowers on this tag.  I also recently purchased the Affectionately Yours paper pack, and thought it would compliment this tag with the flower pattern. I finished my tag with the new ribbon from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  I couldn't decide if I should use the gold or the silver both looked good, but I thought the contrast of the silver and the linen thread worked out better.  Thanks for stopping by!
