SIP Challenge 186 – Vellum!

SIP Challenge 186 – Vellum!

Hey there! I hope that your week is off to a good start! I had a nice weekend, got some stuff done, not as much as I wanted to but isn’t that always the case! We are supposed to be getting snow today, I don’t want any of that thanks! LOL! I guess we have been lucky so far and it was bound to run out eventually. Here’s to hoping that it’s only an inch or two. 😀

It’s time once again for a new challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog. This week are focusing on using vellum…

I love vellum! There are so many different ways to add it to your projects! I choose a very subtle way today. The other day I posted on Instagram my first Alcohol Ink background and I used that to make my card. My card was inspired by Amy from Prairie Paper & Ink. The background uses Amethyst and Flamingo Alcohol Ink on Yupo Paper with some Alcohol Blending Solution. I used a straw to blow it around and then waited for it to dry a bit before adding some Deco Foil in Gold. To cut it out I used the Concord & 9th Heartstrings Dies, also cutting out a piece of Gold Vellum. That is added, offset, to the back of the colored heart with Glue Tube. My LOVE is cut from Gold Mirror Card using the Concord & 9th Love You So Dies. That is adhered to the heart with more Glue Tube. I added the heart to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. A few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Confetti pieces and the card is done. I kept it simple as to not take away from the cool alcohol ink heart! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge!

Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 185 – CAS Valentine!

SIP Challenge 185 – CAS Valentine!

Hello! I’m late today! LOL! We had some issues getting things together over on the challenge blog so I waited until that post was up to post mine. I had a lovely day with the kiddos. Tristan was in a really good mood which is always nice! Tomorrow I’ll be in the city at The Ink Pad for a while in the afternoon. I’m looking forward to it! If you’re nearby come in and say hi! 😀

Better late than never! Here is this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge…

I used the Concord & 9th Little Love Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies to create my card. The background is stamped with the stacked hearts three times using my MISTI and some Ballet Slippers Ink. I stamped the greeting on top of them with Black Licorice Ink. My little xo heart is stamped in Wild Rose Ink and cut out with the die. I added it to the card with 3M Foam Tape. For a little bling I scattered some hearts from a Little Things by Lucy Mix and a little Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen on the xo heart. Nice and quick and simple! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper CAS Valentine Challenge! Stop by the BLOG for more inspiration and share your card with us in the gallery! Thank you for visiting with me and have a nice evening! 🙂
