SIP Challenge 188 – Designer’s Choice!

SIP Challenge 188 – Designer’s Choice!

Hi everyone! It’s back to being cold here in New York. I know Spring is coming but it seems so far away! I had one of those rare nights last night where I only got about 3 hours of sleep. Today should be fun! ๐Ÿ˜›

It’s Tuesday once again and time for a new challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog…

I wanted to play with some of the new dies from this month’s Concord & 9th release to make my card for today! I started by using the Concord & 9th Pretty Poppy Dies to cut out some Rose Quartz, Garden Green and Black 110lb for the pieces that I needed to make my flower. I set those aside and used the Concord & 9th Peek-Through Patterns Photopolymer Stamp Set to stamp the cross marks onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock in Minty Fresh Ink. The greeting is from the same set and is stamped in Black Licorice. I assembled my poppy and adhered it to the card base with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. It needed a little bling so I added a few Pink Rhinestones and the card is done! I love the subtle background with the nice bold die cut flower! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Designer’s Choice challenge! Head on over to the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and add your take to the gallery! Thanks for coming by today! Have a great rest of your Tuesday! ๐Ÿ™‚

Paper Craft Crew 327 – Sketch!

Paper Craft Crew 327 – Sketch!

Two days in a row?! That hasn’t happened in a long time! LOL! I was FaceTiming with Andrea on Monday and she sent me this week’s sketch to nudge me to make a card. It does feel good to be creating again. The Mojo comes in spurts but at least it’s coming. I’m going to try and get in the Stampin’ Galley again today! Wish me luck! ๐Ÿ˜€

Today’s card is for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch challenge…

I got to play with some more new goodies from this month’s Concord & 9th release! They are definitely one of my favorite companies! I love the innovative products they come up with! I used the Concord & 9th Floral Print Silhouettes Stamps and Dies along with a few other oldies but goodies for my card. To start I stamped the circle of flowers from the Concord & 9th Floral Print Silhouette Photopolymer Stamp Set in Black Licorice, Jalapeรฑo and Sunflower Ink with my Mini MISTI. To cut it out I used the circle die from the Concord & 9th Birthday Basics Dies. Next, I cut out a piece of Sunflower Card Stock with the Hero Arts Circle Infinity Dies. My banner is from the Concord & 9th Best Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped two of them in Jalapeรฑo and cut them out with my Scissors. A piece of Fun Foam cut out with another of the Circle Infinity Dies is added to the back of the floral circle and adhered to the Sunflower circle with the banners sandwiched in between. The deer is cut from a piece of Solar White 80lb for the head and some Super Gold Curious Metallic for the antlers. I added the circles to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and stamped my greeting in Black Licorice. The deer is added with 3M Foam Tape. For a little sparkle I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins to the flower centers and applied a heavy coat of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to the deer head. I love that floral circle and actually wish that it was big enough to cover a card front! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and share yours with us in the gallery! Thanks for coming by again today! Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday! ๐Ÿ™‚

SIP Challenge 187 – Monochromatic!

SIP Challenge 187 – Monochromatic!

Hey there! How are we all doing today? I’m well, busy which is always good. I have to finish up 80 baby shower invites today that I have been working on for a bit. I’ll post some pics of them in a few weeks. It was a lot but I had so much fun making them, felt good to be crafty! ๐Ÿ˜€

I can’t believe that it’s Tuesday again! Time for a new challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge blog…

I got to play with new goodies from this month’s Concord & 9th release to make my card! To start I stamped the paint stroke from the Concord & 9th Peek-Through Patterns Photopolymer Stamp Set with Altenew Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields, Deep Iris and Midnight Violet Ink onto Solar White 80lb using my MISTI so that I could double stamp each color. The greeting is stamped in Midnight Violet. Once that was dry I used the friend die from the Concord & 9th Peek-Through Patterns Dies to cut out the word from the stamped panel and a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock.

I adhered the panel to the card base with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and the card is finished! I love that big die cut friend! Such a cool idea! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Monochromatic Challenge! You can see more inspiration over on the BLOG and we hope to see your card in the gallery! Thanks so much for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your Tuesday! ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ˜€

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! There is more inspiration over on the BLOG so stop by and check out the rest of the Team’s cards! We hope that you will share your card with us in the gallery! Thank you for stopping by!

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! ๐Ÿ˜€

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!
