SIP Challenge 43 – A Sketch!

So, how was your Monday? Mine was pretty good! I crafted with Andrea via FaceTime in the morning and managed to get three cards made! Love when the Mojo is flowing! It was supposed to rain yesterday but didn’t. It was chilly but sunny with a little wind mixed in for fun! I went over to my parent’s for dinner and then Danielle stopped by! I love having weekly visits from her! We chatted and listened to some music and watched some of Magic Mike XXL. After she left I ran to the bank and Target. There were of course rearranging the aisle that I needed to go down so I didn’t get much! Today I have some more crafting to get done, always a good day when there is crafting involved!

It’s Tuesday and I have my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

SIP Sketch Challenge 43 800

I used a bunch of different goodies to make my card! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My background is a piece of Neenah Desert Storm 80lb that I heat embossed in Simon Says Stamp Clear Fine Detail Embossing Powder with the Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain Background Stamp. It’s cut out with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangles. A piece of Gold Mirror Card Stock is cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Frames and I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles to cut out a piece of Acetate and a piece of Canson 140lb Watercolor Card. Some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink is applied to the Watercolor Card with my Mini Ink Blending Tool. The Gold Frame is adhered to the Acetate with Scor-Tape and some 3M Foam Tape is adhered to the back of that. I added some Gold Chunky Glitter and adhered the Watercolor Card to the back to complete the shaker. My cool flowers and vase are cut from more Watercolor Card using the Concord & 9th Bouquet Die. I used my Mini Ink Blending tool and some Q-Tips to add the Mermaid Lagoon, Abandoned Coral, Candied Apple, Fossilized Amber and Twisted Citron to die cut and the adhered it to the front of the shaker with Elmer’s Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. A strip of Vellum is flagged on the right and adhered to the shaker with Vellum Adhesive. My lovely is cut out twice from Ivory 110lb with the Concord & 9th Wonderful Words Die. More Spary Adhesive holds them to each other and a little Multi-Matte Medium adheres it to the banner. Some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen is added to the lovely and the card is done! I really do love that Bouquet Die and it looks even more fun with the gold glitter in the shaker behind it! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Sketch Challenge!

  2. Justin, this is a very great card with the pretty bright flowers and all the glitz elements. Love it. Take care and have a fantastic day!

  3. Yeah! I love when you use that woodgrain stamp as a background. I find it to be one of the most versatile background stamps that I own. Also, the vase and flowers bouquet die is just gorgeous. I can tell you really had fun making this one Justin…………just as it should be.

    It’s raining like crazy here today. I am doing a class at the nursing home my daughter works at in a few weeks so I will spend some time creating 3 fairly simple cards to teach. I will also do all the die cutting and card stock cutting that needs to be done. I love doing classes there – the people are so wonderful and fun. I am limited to what I can do making cards with them because it depends on how many helpers they give me. I feel blessed that the director has asked me to once again do a class. You have yourself a Tantalizing Tuesday my friend. Today is Tracy’s birthday – I can’t believe she is turning 45, she looks about 20. LOL Love and hugs to you, XXXOOO 🙂

      We had rain too in the morning but it was sunny by the afternoon! Yay for you doing your class! I’ll bet that it will be loads of fun! Wish I was there for it!
