SIP Challenge 36 – Card Maker’s Choice!

Home / Blog / SIP Challenge 36 – Card Maker’s Choice!

What a nice day at Scrap-A-Latte! I FaceTimed with Andrea and I got to meet some new people that came in to buy stuff, sold a lot of Lawn Fawn yesterday and I got my sets to start making the cards for next month’s class! Speaking of next month’s class, I’m pondering an idea of how I can bring the class to you! I’ll let you know when I have more info! I also started working on my card for today while I was there. After I locked up the store I stopped by Aldi, it’s a new supermarket that we have here, they also have them in England! I got some K-Cups for $4.29 for 12 and Italian Sweet Cream Coffee Creamer for $2.19! Not too bad! When I got back home I watched a little TV and then sat down to finish putting my card together for today!

The card that I worked on yesterday is for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

SIP Challenge 36 - Card Maker's Choice 800

I used one of the new Lawn Fawn sets to make today’s card! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For the background I cut out two pieces of Tim Holtz Watercolor Card with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangles. On the one I used Stormy Sky and Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. The other one I used to cut out the waves with the Lawn Fawn Ocean Wave Borders and the clouds with the Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Borders. On the waves I used Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. I then took the background and the waves and spritzed them with some water, let it sit for about 30 seconds and then blotted it off with a paper towel. Before adhering the waves and clouds to the card with Foam Tape I heat embossed the greeting from the Lawn Fawn Lovable Legends Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. The Loch Ness Monster is from the same set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics, some Multi-Matte Medium adheres him to the card. You know that sequins make everything better so I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear ones on the waves! I love the Loch Ness and I think he’s too cute to call a monster in this case! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Make sure and check out the rest of the Team’s cards over on the BLOG and we hope to see one from you in the gallery! Thank you for coming by today! Have a creative Tuesday! 🙂

  1. (a) You also got to catch up with me! and (b) never thought I would ever see you make a card with the Loch Ness monster on it. Have you jumped the shark? LOL Cute card! Would be great for a boy’s birthday. Classes to us…interesting….will be waiting to hear what you have planned.

    1. Catching up with you is always a highlight of my day! I love that little monster! He’s too cute to be a monster on this card! We’ll just call him Nessie! LOL! Yes, it would be a good boy’s b’day card for sure! I’m working on an idea, I’ll have to talk to you about it to see what you think! 🙂

  2. Good Morning Justin:

    First of all, you’re Loch Ness Monster is too cute to be a monster. It reminded me more of a Macy’s Day parade balloon! LOL Love this card and all the new Lawn Fawn elements, especially the waves die. How fun it must be to spend the day at Stamp a Latte and get to see all the new things and play with some of them. I bet you did sell a lot, you are quite convincing for sure and Renee is so lucky to have someone to run the shop so she can take a day off once in a while. Can’t wait to see what you come up with for your class. You have yourself a Terrific Tuesday and go figure out how to bring all of us the classes! Love and hugs, XXOO 🙂
