a2z Scrapbooking February 2016 Challenge

Second Post for the day
If your looking for So Suzy Stamps January Challenge, click here

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

  Our new challenge is all about Masking!!!!!

Check out the card I created for this challenge:

You're Pretty Sweet

First let me tell you that my daughter, really had me dying with laughter.  She said, “Mom, why did you color the watermelons orange”?  I said, “because they are oranges”.  Then she said, “Mom those aren’t oranges, they are watermelons.  Look at the seeds and the rim”. I had to laugh!!  So yes, they are watermelons that I turned into oranges.

In any case, all I did was:

  1. Stamp the two fruit on some masking paper then cut them out by hand.
  2. I stamped the apple first, then covered it with the masking paper then stamped the orange on both sides.
  3. Then I removed the masked and covered the right orange, with its mask, then stamped the last apple.
  4. Some of the fruit are in front and some are in the back.  That is what masking does.  It prevents you from having lines in the images.
  5. Then I colored them with Copic Markers E27, G07, R46 and YR68.
  6. After that I stamped the sentiment and added some gems.

Easy peasy!!

Great trick, right? I hope you love what you see and that it inspires you to join us this month. You have the entire month to create a new project and enter it into our challenge. By entering you will have a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking Store. Winner will be announced on the 7th of March.  Good Luck!

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our CS Take It Make It: Take a Stamp Challenge for the month of September.

This month’s theme is Take a Stamp!!  That means take any stamp and create something, anything goes!! Now if that isn’t easy, I’m not sure what is!!

Take a look at my card:

Sending Warm Wishes (TIMI)

I love how my little tree turned out!!  I love the look of all of those fall colors.  I’m a Summer girl but Fall sure is pretty too.

Here is how I created this card:

I used Lawn Fawn Small Stitch Square Stackables to die cut my stitched square panel.

I used Hero Arts Color Layering Fall Trees Stamp Set and layered stamped my leaves.  I used Lawn Fawn Freshly Cut Grass, Lobster, Fake Tan and Walnut.

I stamped my sentiment from the same stamp set and stamped it with the Walnut ink.

I added Lawn Fawn Trimming around the card panel.

I attached the card panel to an orange panel then added those panels to my card base.

I added Lucy Abrams Just Peachy and Rainforest Sparkly Shaker Sequin to the card front.

I love how this turned out!!  Now its your turn to play along with us!!!

I Love You Birdie!!

Hello everyone!! I’m here with a brand new stamp company based in Germany called Create A Smile.  They have fun designs, cute images and punny sentiments that you will love.

Blog-Badge

Over on their Create a Smile blog, they are having a Guest Designer Search for their September Release!!

How exciting is that!!  When I saw that, I knew I would love to be Guest Designer for them.  So I created a project with their free digi birdie to be included in the running!

Take a look at my card:

I Love You Birdie

When I saw this little birdie on their blog, I fell in love with him.  He is the cutest bird I’ve seen.  His big eyes pulled me in.

I used Copic marker Y13 and Y19 to color him in.

I fussy cut him out because I wanted him to pop him off of my card.

I created my tag using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 1 and Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue cardstock.

I stamped my “I Love You” sentiment from Papertrey Ink Building Blocks stamp set in Versafine Black Ink. I added foam adhesive to the back of my birdie and adhered him to the tag.

I used my white gel pen to create eyes on my birdie.

I punched a hole in the top of my tag and add some retired So Saffron ribbon and Tempting Turquoise bakers twine.

For my card base, I used Simon Says Stamp Medium Dots Stencil to create a subtle background with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and my mini distress blending tool on a piece of Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock.

I added foam adhesive behind my tag and WaLa, I was done.

So what do you think?  Will my card win over anyone’s heart?  I hope so!!

Let me know what you think below.

What’s Your Favorite Watercolor Color?

watercolor for card makers

I must say this Watercolor for Card Makers is an awesome class.  I’m learning so much and sharing it with my daughter has been even better.  Both of us are having a lot of fun learning about colors and how the work with one another.  Once her cards are posted I will link them here in my blog so you can see what her take on the lessons were.

Today’s card is a Stamped Emboss Resist and Watercolor Wash Card.  Kristina Werner taught us how to add ink on top of an embossed image, the ink just happens to be watercolor.  I’ve practice this technique a couple of weeks ago and it took me a while but I got it down pack and my card came out really nice. You can check out my post on April 30.

For my new card, I wanted to create a male card.  I don’t have many of those, I wanted to make sure I tried colors that were suited for men.  I love blues, yellow, and coral.  I also tried something new.  ADDING STITCHING TO MY CARD!!!  I’ve never done that before but I wanted to finally try it.  It was exciting!

Love to call you my friend

I love how the colors blended to make colors that weren’t in my original palette.  When I added the yellow to the tip of the blue it create that pretty green.  The same when I added the coral to the yellow, it created the orange.  It was amazing.

Creating the background was pretty easy.

I used Impression Obsessions Honeycomb Stamp to create my background.  I stamped it with VersaMark and embossed it with Stampin’ Up! clear embossing powder.

I used my Koi Watercolors,  I used number 23, 24 and 8.

My vellum and card stock was attached with my small sewing machine.  I had that sewing machine for two years and never used.  I pulling it out to create this card and I’m so glad I did.

Guess what, I didn’t know how to use the sewing.  I had to ask my daughter to help set up the machine.  I thought that was funny and she loved teaching me.

All and all, my card came out the way I had hoped it would.  I’m very pleased with the look.  I hope you are too!
