The new Abstract Florals and Script Greeting stamp sets are so much fun to play with.  I have to admit the Abstract Floral stamp set is totally out of my comfort zone.  I can’t figure out which inks to use to build the flowers.  Play with this set, has helped me a lot.

Take a look at my cards:

Hello (RAH)

I love how my flowers turned out. I shied away from building my flowers this go round but you will see that later this month.

Here’s how I created these cards:

  1. Both cards are an A2 size cards, 4.25 by 5.50 scored at 5.50.
  2. I used the Mini Misti to stamp the flowers, stem and sentiment all at one time using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.  It saved me time on the second card as well, since everything was in the right place.
  3. After the flowers were stamped, I used Tombow Recycled Color Pencils to color them in.
  4. Once the flowers were all colored, I took Tombow Mono Sand Eraser and give the tip of the flowers some highlights.
  5. I added some YNS Give Thanks for Sparkle and Candy Land Glittered Gumdrops and round the top corners to finish the cards off.

I’m going to make a couple more of these cards so that I can include them in the happymail packages that I send to my giveaway winners.

Your next stop on this awesome hop is Yuki’s blog! She is amazing!!

What’s a hop without a giveaway!! One lucky person who hops along and leaves a comment on each blog will win the Scripty Greeting stamp set.

So what do you think? Let me know below.

CS Take It Make It: Take a Stamp Challenge

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 July.

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:

Amazing (TIMI)

I am totally siked!!  My niece said “Auntie that is amazing”, when I was finished with this card.  That is why the sentiment is amazing.  I love this card so much.  The colors are so pretty.

Here is how I created this card:

1. I used Versamark Ink and covered this awesome new stamp that I picked from The Ton!  Its a fairly new stamp company and this stamp is totally awesome. Its called Peony Garden Stamp!

2. I placed my watercolor paper on top of the stamp and rub the ink onto the paper.

3. I added Hero Arts White Embossing Powder on top of the stamped image.  Then I heat set the embossing powder.

4. Then I added some of Ken Oliver Crafts Color Burst in Orange and Lemon Yellow.  I love this watercolor powder. Its so vibrant and super easy to use.

IMG_3873

 

5. I cleaned up my water color piece with a damp napkin and trimmed it to fit on an standard size A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50).

6. I didn’t want my sentiment to cover up my watercolor flower so I stamped The Ton’s Friggin Fabulous Stamp Set on Dura-lar Acetate with Versamark Ink and heat set the white embossing powered.

IMG_3883

 

I have to say I was amazed that I didn’t melt the acetate or my finger! I didn’t prep my acetate with powder before I stamp it so that is why you see so many specs.  I’m ok with it.

7. I added this sentiment piece to my card front with Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.

Pretty neat right!!  Now its your turn to play along with us.

Waffle Flower Crafts – Photo Inspiration

Hello everyone!! I’m here with our new Waffle Flower Crafts Photo Inspiration Challenge!!!

This is our tenth challenge for 2015 and this happens to be my favorite photo to date.

Take a look:

Waffle Flower Craft

Look at how vibrant those colors are!

Take a look at my photo:

Hello (WFC)Oh man, I couldn’t help myself with this card.  I love those ombre colors in the photo above that I had to recreate the same look with one of the colors.

Here’s how I created this card:

1. My card base is cut to an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50 scored at 5.50).

2. I cut the card panel to 2.25 x 5.50

3. I used Distress Ink Salty Ocean to create my ombre look.  I started with the full strength of the ink to the paper.  Then I tapped off on the side before added the color to the paper.  Then I lightly add color to the bottom of the paper.

4. I place my panel into my Misti and stamped a flower from Waffle Flower Crafts Flower Circles Stamp Set with Versamark Ink.

5. I added Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and heat set it.

6. I used the same stamp set to stamp my sentiment with My Favorite Things Hybrid Black Ink.

7. I pop my card panel up with fun foam and I added Pretty Pink Posh Winter Snow Mix sequin randomly.

Super cool!!  I love how this card turned out.

So what do you think? Please let me know.

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

I’m also linking this card up to Virginia’s View Challenge #15.

Warm Holiday Wishes Tag

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today playing with Tag You’re It!!  This is my first time playing with them.  I’m happy I found them.  I recently started making tags and I love them.  They are super fun to make.

TYIC_12

The TYIC Designer for his challenge is Tracey McNeely and her tag is fabulous!!

When I looked at her tag, I thought of pops of color.  So I decided that I wanted to have a pop of color on my tag too.

Take a look at my card:

Warm Holiday Wishes

I love that pop of that Cable Car Red Wow embossing powder on my gloves.

Warm Holiday Wishes sideview

Not along is it a tag, but it doubles as a card too!!  So you can write your message inside instead of the back.

This is how I created my tag:

I cut two tags out of Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock using Reverse Confetti Tag Me, Too.

I used Simon Says Stamp Big Holiday Wishes stamp set to stamp my snowflakes with Versamark ink.  Then I embossed them with Hero Arts White Embossing Power.

I stamped my sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

I stamped the mitten string with Versafine Onyx Black ink around the hole in the tag.

I stamped my mittens using Versamark ink and embossed with Cable Car Red Wow Emobossing Powder.

I fussy cut the mittens out and adhered them with foam adhesive. I added Clear Wink of Stella on my mittens for a sparkly shine.

I attached my second tag to the back of the first tag with adhesive to create a tag that opens.

I strung Stampin’ Up! Retired Whisper White Sweater Ribbon to finish off my tag.

Nice and easy.  So what do you think?

White Stamping

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our December Challenge!

This month’s theme is White Stamping!!  That could be white ink, white paint or white embossed stamped image.  This technique is so pretty when its complete.

I saw Kristina Werner create a card that had white embossing and I knew I had to give it a try.

So take a look at my card:

Happy Holidays White Stamping

Isn’t this such a pretty technique!  That white embossing on the blue is so pretty.  That pop of red stands out.

Here is how I created my card:

1. I cut my Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue cardstock on an angle and adhered it to my Neenah Solar 110lb White cardstock using foam adhesive.

2. I used Simon Says Stamp Presents and Ornaments to stamp my snowflakes and bows using Versamark ink.

3. I sprinkled Hero Arts Embossing Powder on my stamped images and heat set it.

4. I added versamark ink to the edge of the a Audrey blue cardstock, added white embossing powder and heat set it for added embossed dimension.

5. I stamped my sentiment using Simon Says Stamp Be Joyful stamp set with Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue Ink.

6. I used my Copic marker R29 and colored a piece of white cardstock and die cut a heart using the smallest heart from Lawn Fawn Hearts Cuts.

7. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the heart and adhered the heart with foam adhesive.

8. I added Stampin’ Up! Rhinestones to the center of all of my snowflakes.

Easy Peasy!  What do you think? Let me know.

Now its your turn!!

You can stamp away to your hearts desire, using white ink, gesso or white paint.  You can even stamp an image and then emboss with white embossing powder if you want to too!!

To be clear, you CAN stamp in other colors too, but we need to see some parts of your project have clearly been stamped in white!

Thankful Thanksgiving….

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a2z Scrapbooking and our November Challenge which is Anything Goes!

I decided to go with a Thanksgiving theme.

Thanksgiving is that day where we gather with family and friends to show how grateful we are to them. Big dinners are cook, tables are set and everyone is waiting for the turkey!!

My family is the most important part of who I am. I am grateful for each and everyone of them. I have two children, five brothers and sister, my mom and day, 5 nieces and nephews and so many aunts, uncles and my grandparents. When we get together we have a blast.

Before we have dinner, we gather together, hold hands and go around the room and say what we are thankful for this year. I love doing that because our lives are so busy sometimes we forget to tell each other that we are grateful for them. Once the last person speaks, my grandmother says a prayer and then we sit and eat together as a family.

This year, I wanted to do something extra. I wanted to give my brother and sister something to take with them.

So I create a couple of Thanksgiving tags that have a special note on the back for each of my sibling.

Take a look at my tags:

Thanksgiving Tag set

To get a closer look at all of my tags, please head over to a2z Scrapbooking blog and take a look.

So what do you think? Do you think my siblings will like their tags?

All but three of the items I used for my tags can all be found at the a2z Scrapbooking Store. If you would like to purchase any of the supplies I used please head on over to the store and use the coupon code KYMONA15 to get 15% off your purchase.

I hope my tags gives you some inspiration to participate in our Current Challenge. It runs to the end of the month, which ends in two weeks. So hurry and create!

You have a chance to win a $25.00 gift card to the a2z Scrapbooking Store. Hope to see you there!
