Try Something New – Where Creativity Meets C9

Hello everyone!!  Happy New Year to all of you!!

I’m here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!! This is first challenge for 2017!! Exciting right!!  I think so!!

So without further-a-do, take a look at our challenge theme:

try-something-new

Take a look at my card:

best-couple-wcmc9

For this challenge, the team was able to play with the new release that’s live right now.  I was played with the set called Best Banners Stamp Set!  I love everything about this set.

I wanted to keep my card clean and simple, so I stamped the four different banners at the top and bottom of the card. Then stamped the sentiment in the center. I stamped the heart and added glossy accents inside of it.  Once that dried, I added a couple of splatters for added interest.

Nice and easy.

What do you think?  Please let know below.

I can’t wait to see how you interpret our challenge theme this month.

CASology 186 – Distress

Third Post for today

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

This week’s cue card is:

Week 186 - Distress

I was wondering what do I do with this cue card.  When I think of distress, I think of ink and blending.  How can I make a CAS card with different inks blending together? Nothing was coming to me that would be simple and WOW at the same time.

Then I remember I received a Tombow Mono Correction Tape and saw a super fun technique using this non-crafty tool.

Check out my card:

Distress banner (CAS)

Do you see my distress banner?  LOL!!  I created that with correction tape!!

Here’s how:

Stamping images (CAS)

I used the Mini Misti to stamp the flower image from Lawn Fawn Happy Easter Stamp Set.

adding correction tape (CAS)

Then I used the Tombow Mono Correction Tape Retro to create a distress box that my sentiment will go.

Once the correction tape was down, I used my finger to pick up some of the tape on the edges, so that it looks distress.

I used the Mini Misti and My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink to stamp the sentiment on the correction tape.

After that I, I used a Copic Mulitliner to draw a line around the distressed box.

Finished (CAS)

To finish the card off, I used Tombow Irojiten Colored Pencils Dictionary, Rainforest Pale Tones to color my tulips.

Very non-conventional, but I love it!! I hope you give this method a try!!

What do you think?  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Top Dog Dies Cupcake Die SetHappy Birthday (TDD)

This was the first die I played with as soon I received my happymail!!  Its the Top Dog Dies Cupcake Die Set. If you follow me, you’ve seen this card before.  I was given permission to showcase this card before the release.  That was exciting.

This die contains 7 dies, but one of the dies have 5 small cupcake toppers.  Super cute and versatile die set.  I love the different frosting topping.

 

Top Dog Dies Balloon Die SetGo and Celebrate (TDD) Lets Party Celebrate (TDD)

Up next is the Top Dog Dies Balloon Die Set!!  How super cute are these cards?  I used the biggest balloon die to create all of my cards. This set has 6 dies ranging from big to little.  I showcased these balloons last week to get you excited about the new release.

I will showcase the other dies on my Wednesday Series!  So stay tune for that.

 

Now onto the last die set and card!!  This set and card is my favorite of them all.

Take a look:

Top Dog Dies Unicorn Die Set

Unicorn (TDD)

I just love this card.  I love the colors, the shaker pocket, the splatters and the unicorn!!  I’m super please with how this card turn out.

I used Top Dog Dies Unicorn Die Set to create my unicorn.  I cut the mane and horn out of my watercolor panels that I created weeks ago.  I have so much of these panels left.  If you haven’t seen them, take a look.

Watercolor pieces

These panels have gone a long way!

To create this card, I die cut the unicorn out of white cardstock and the mane and horn out of the watercolor panel you see above.

To make the shaker window I cut out the white panel.  I used my Fuse tool to create the circle pocket.  I added Lucy Adams Cherry Blossom Sequin Mix to the packet panel.

I used Mama Elephant Sightseeing Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment with My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.

I put my card together using foam adhesive.

Once everything was in place, I used my WPlus9 Bloomsberry Spray Mist to create the splatters on my card.

I have to admit, I sprayed wrong and I thought I messed up the entire card.  The big splatters that you see happened because the ink was seeping through the top.  I didn’t realize it until I went to shake the bottle up and it spilled all over my card front.

It turned out to be a Happy Mistake!! I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Wait!!!!!  Before I go I have a giveaway!!

All you have to do is leave a comment below letting me know if you like unicorns.  This giveaway will end 11:59pm August 7, 2015.

I’m giving away the unicorn die set!!

So what do you think of my card?  Please let me know below.

Don’t forget, the full release is will happen tomorrow, August 9th!  Please be sure to come back so you can see what my fellow DT members and myself have created for this release!!

Watercolor Monday!!!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a2z Scrapbooking and our December Challenge!

I’m excited about this challenge because the theme is Watercoloring!!  Yayyy, who doesn’t love watercoloring.  This technique is so much fun.  No two cards look the same.

Take a look at what I created:

All Good Things

Don’t you just love how those colors just mix with one another.  I used 4 different colors to create this background.

I added the ink to the front of my stencil.  I added water to the ink to activate it.

I turned the stencil upside down and placed it on the watercolor paper and used a piece a paper towel to pick up the excess ink and water.

Once I picked up the stencil, I used my heat gun to dry the watercolor panel.

Once dry, I added it to the black cardstock.

I stamp the sentiment with versamark and embossed it with Hero Arts White Embossing powder.

I added foam tape behind the banner and adhered it to the front of the card.

I added some sequin to the front and that’s my card!!

So what do you think?  Let me know.
