SIP Challenge 147 – Color It!

Home / Blog / SIP Challenge 147 – Color It!

Hello strangers!! It’s been way too long! I have been keeping busy with lots of different things. My Mojo is still MIA, I don’t know what happened! I guess after 5 years of making a card a day my creativity wore a little thin. The thing I miss the most is talking to all of you! I have been to Manhattan a few times to see some of my peeps. Jim and I went in a few weeks ago and stopped by The Ink Pad and then went an had Indian Food with my friend Kim. That was fun! I’m also watching Daniel and Tristan twice a week now which is great! I love getting to spend time with them! I also need to go and see about getting the top in my car fixed, it’s convertible season and I miss putting down the roof! Today is also Jim’s Birthday! Happy Birthday Jim!! 😀

We have a fun Color It challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog this week…

My favorite kind of cards to make are ones with large images that can just be stamped! Concord & 9th has a great new set in their April release and I used it to make a set of cards! I started by cutting my card bases from Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stack and using my Stamparatus! I love the fact that it has more than one plate and that they are removable. It’s especially handy when you are stamping layering stamps! I used the Concord & 9th Painted Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set. The outline and greeting are stamped in Black Licorice. I stamped the leaves in Jalapeño and Noble Fir. Each of the flowers are stamped in two in colors. Ballet Slippers and Peachy Keen, Minty Fresh and Merman, Sunflower and Carrot, and finally Grape Soda and Juice Box. I added the spatters in the lighter of the two colors around the rose and the cards are done! Now I have a nice set of cards to give to someone that will work for many different occasions! I hope that you like my Design Team Cards for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Color It Challenge! The is more inspiration over on the BLOG so be sure to check it out and share your card with us in the gallery! It’s so nice to get to share with you again and I really appreciate you stopping by! Have a terrific Tuesday everyone! 🙂

  1. Hi Justin, I’ve been missing you. Glad you’re keeping busy with fun things. I love this stamp set where it can be set up in the MISTI and make several cards in a flash. Your cards are so pretty in different colors. I think we’re finally on the verge of spring, which is definitely a good thing. Enjoy your day, my friend.

  2. Don’t worry about your mojo! Sometimes we just have to mix things up as we enjoy all life has to offer. Enjoy precious time with Daniel and Tristan, and have fun with friends. The card making will be there when you are ready. I love the colorful clean and simple cards you made today. That painted rose could be used for almost any occasion.

  3. Missing talking with yiou also and seeing your beautiful work. But its good to enjoy life, especialy family time. I’m jealous, convirtable weather? WE still hasd winter last week
