Red, White and Blue…

Hello everyone! I’m here today with a Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #169: Vellum Overlays.  I’m so late in posting this card.  I couldn’t decide what I wanted to create for this challenge.

So, I picked the colors that I wanted to work with first.  Since July 4 is this Friday, I decided to go with red, white and blue.  Once I knew that, I saw it fitting to use PTI’s Cover Plate: Stars Die.

After figuring all of that out, I needed to see how my vellum piece would look attached to my card.  Once I added it, I realized I didn’t have a sentiment on my card.  That’s when it hit me that I should add the sentiment to the vellum and in silver for an extra pop.

Yes, that turned out neatly!

Take a look at my card:

Time to Celebrate top

Time to celebrate

 

I attached my vellum with two bronze brads.  I must me honest, when I decided to add brads, I knew for sure I had silver ones.  Well, I such everywhere and I could not find them.  So, I decided to us the bronze brads and I like it.

What do you think?  Don’t be afraid to let me know, good or bad.

I also used Stampin’ Up!’s Retired Pewter embossing power and brads.

Shaker, Shaker…

Hello everyone!!! I’m super duper excited!! My card was chosen as one of the CAS(E) this Sketch Favorites yesterday!!!  I have to say this card is one of my favorite cards of all times.  The white and gold are so pretty together.  I’m so glad I participated.

I’m back today with CAS(E) this Sketch #82.  This sketch was created by N@ Ali.

When I saw this sketch, I know I wanted to play with Mama Elephant’s Just Hatched stamp set.  I ordered it back in March when it was release but haven’t had a chance to use it.  So I saw it fitting to use it today.

Take a look at my card:

Chirp, Chirp

It’s a shaker card!!! This is the first time I’ve created a shaker card.  It wasn’t hard at all.  I have to thank Laura Bassen for the inspiration.  She always makes shakers cards look so easy to make.

1. I colored my chick with Copic markers # YR16, Y13, Y19, YG17.

2. My speech bubble was created using a die from Lawn Fawn’s Large Stitched Journaling Card Dies.

3. I stamped the sentiment on the card base using the die cut speech bubble as a reference so that the sentiment was centered.

4. A piece of acetate was attached to the front panel.

5. I added a lot of foam adhesive around the speech bubble so that the sequin wouldn’t fall out.  Adhesive was also added to the edge of the panel so that it will sit nice and neat on the card base.

So what do you think?  I’m impressed at my first shaker card.  I can’t wait to try this with a watercolor panel.

A Rainbow of “Butterflies”

Second post for today

Hello everyone! I’m back again with another post for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes!

For this card, I wanted to display Stampin’ Up! new In Colors and other products in a fun way.

Take a look:

A little something cute

I used Stampin’ Up!’s Elegant Butterfly Punch to punch out a butterfly from each of the new colors.

The sentiment comes from a new stamp set called Something To Say Wood Mount Stamp Set and I stamped it using the Lost Lagoon Ink.

I layered two different pieces of the new Moonlight DSP Stack on top of the Whisper White cardstock.

For the finishing touches, I added rhinestones to he butterflies.

Very easy to make.

So tell me, what do you think.

Air Mail..with LOVE!

Hello everyone! Good Afternoon on this bright and sunny day.  I love days like this.  The sun is out and I can bask in the sunshine. I just love that.

I’m here today with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.   The theme is ANYTHING GOES! How great is that.  You can create anything you want.

Since I received my July Card Kit this week, I decided that I wanted to create my card with the Sending Happy Thoughts Stamp Set that is included in the kit.

I wanted to create a clean and simple card for this challenge.

Take a look at my card:

Sending Happy Mail

1. I used the envelopes from that stamp set, water-colored each envelope then cut them out.

2. I adhered them using dimensionals.

3. I stamped the sentiment and hearts.

4. I added rhinestones to envelopes and around the greeting.

I like how the card turned out but I can’t help but feel like something is missing from the top right corner.  Do you feel the same way?  If so, please let me know what you think should have gone there or if it is fine just the way it is.

WOW! What Color Is That?

Hello everyone!  I’m back again today, this time for the Muse Challenge #73.  The Muse for this week is Beverley Brown!

Take a look at Beverley Brown’s card:

MuseNow take a look at my card:

Sending Happy Thoughts front

 I wasn’t sure which picture I wanted to use so I decided to add both of them.

Sending Happy Thoughts

Beverley created a CAS card that I love. I love the simplicity of her card.

Beverley used multicolor in her butterflies, so I wanted my flowers to have that same multicolor look.  I used the baby wipe technique to create my multicolor flowers.

Then I stamped my sentiment with the same multicolor ink.

I had fun creating this card.  Soooo, what do you think?

Fresh & Fun Watercoloring!

Hello everyone!  Yes, yes, more water-coloring for me.  I love it.

I’m here today with CASology and their Cue Card is Wood!

Week 101 - Wood

Yes, wood.  I was wondering how can I use my favorite technique (WATERCOLOR) and wood.  Then a light bulb when off and I knew what I wanted to do.

Take a look at what I came up with:

Woodgrain hello

Yayyy, I was able to combine my water-coloring with woodgrain!!  I love it.

1. I used Simon Says Stamp woodgrain cardstock.

2. I stamped Papertrey Ink Splat hello stamp with Distress Inks.

3. I used my paint brush to smear the circles, so that they have a spilling look from one side of the circle.

4. I added some sequins and WALA, I was done.

So tell me what you think.  I would love to know.
