CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge

Hello everyone!! I’m here with CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge for October.

Our theme is Take a Technique!

For this month’s challenge the techniques we would like to see involve the strapline on our new look Craft Stamper cover: Ink Stitch Paint Collage Print Paper. If your project involves any one (or more!) of those, (and stamping, of course!) then you’re good to go!

Now let me just say that the Design Team will showcase the ATB (Artistic Trading Blocks) as a part of the prize that the winner will receive.  Those of you who play along with us can enter any style of project you wish!!!

Take a look at my ATB box:

Lifetime Adventure (TIMI)
I have to admit, this was my first time working with this type of block.  I headed straight to Pinterest to see how and what these block were.

I was blown away at the blocks I saw.  I tried to figure out how I could make my block look as fabulous as the ones I saw.  Then I thought, my style is Clean and Simple so why not just do that?

So, I want with a Clean and Simple ATB box!!!!

Here are the other views:

Smile for me (TIMI)

Take Flight (TIMI)
To create this block, all I did was cut Ken Oliver Studio Pattern Paper to the size of the block. Then I added Tim Holtz ChitChat Verbiage to each side of the block. I also added Tim Holtz Mini Gears and Mirrored Stars to the block.

Nice and easy!!

Now its your turn to play along with us.

We have a great prize pack for you.

We have two prizes to offer this month, the first is our sponsor prize. This winner will be chosen randomly from all of the entries in the challenge! The sponsor for October: Calico Craft Parts

Hello everyone,  I’m here today with So Suzy Stamps October 2015 Blog Challenge.


Check out my card:

Halloween (SSS)

I just love how that background turned out!!  I’m not use to making background but I wanted to give this a try and I’m so glad I did!!

Here’s how I created this card:

  1. I cut out a circle mask and adhered it to the card front so that I could blended Distress Ink Salty Ocean and Seedless Preserves together to create the night sky.IMG_5380
  2. Then I used Heidi Swap Star Stencil and Hero Arts Unicorn Ink and added some stars in the sky.
  3. Then I used WPlus9 Shimmer Spray Mist to add shimmer dimension in the sky.
  4. After that I stamped So Suzy Stamps Safest Day Stamp Set using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.
  5. Then I stamped the So Suzy Stamp Halloween Cat using the same Hybrid Ink .
  6. Then I used the Hybrid Ink to add color to my Unique Laser Deisgns Halloween Mini Chipboard and adhered it within my moon.

It might look hard, but it was the easiest card I could have created!!

So what do you thing?  Please let me know below!!

Creating this card was simple.

  4. After that stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts Color Layering Fall Trees stamp set using Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and heat set it.

CASology 166 – Science

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Cue Card for you!!!

This week’s cue card is:

Week 166 - Science

Take a look at my card:

Your made of (CAS)

I went really simple with this cue card this week.  When I saw the cue card word, my mind went straight to Your Next Stamp Perfect Chemistry Stamp Set.

This card doesn’t represent science, I’m not sure what would.  LOL!!! Do you remember that periodic table in school.  I do, LOL! I was a science major.

For this card, the sentiment and squares are part of one stamp so I only stamped once and colored the squares in with Copic marker: YR27 and C1.

I rounded the top corners of the card stock, then I was done.

Super, Super, Super Simple and easy!!

Now its your turn!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

For more inspiration, check out my fellow Design Team members blog for more awesome work.

Heartfelt Thanks – Muse

Hello everyone!!  I’m popping in really quickly to share my card for the Muse Challenge this week!!

Yes, its been a while since I played and the opportunity presented itself so I jumped on it.

This week’s Muse is Anita Bowden. Take a look at her card:


Now take a look at my card:

Heartfelt Thanks 1

To create this card, I used My Favorite Things Jumbo Dot Cover-Up and created a stencil.  I used Distress Ink Scattered Straw, Spun Sugar, Evergreen Bough, and Shade Lilac to create my circles.

Stencil and Inks

I simple pounced the ink onto the paper.  Once that was done, I removed the stencil and trimmed the card panel down and added to the black panel and then add that to the card base.

I used Papertrey Ink’s Circle Scribbles Die to cut a piece of vellum.  Then I die cut Paper Smooches Heartfelt Thanks sentiment out of black card stock.  I attached both to the card front using Tombow Multipurpose Glue.

Super simple and fun to create.

So what do you think?  Does my card fit the Muse?
