Get Well


   September 12


This is my design team card for Try Stampin (or not) on Tuesday.  
The sketch is below and the them is Fall Fun.

I started with white cs that I smooshed Spiced Marmalade, Vintage Photo, Antique Linen, Walnut Stain and Peeled Paint.  I cut that in strips the width of the cars and attached them with spacing between.
I took the rest of the smooshed paper and cut a bunch of small leaves with a punch.
I ran the dotted white with a gel pen and then stamped the sentiment with a Hampton Arts stamp and gold embossing powder.
I then mounted all those little leaves with dimensional squares to lift them up like they're floating.





Here is the sketch for the week






I hope you have fun playing along.

Dance.

 September


  This is my September card for the design team at
  Stinkin' Inkers.  
The theme this month is 'YOUR FAVORITE COLOR COMBINATION'
and BLUE
is my signature color.
I love how all the distressed ink blues blend together with the transition into green.  I used a bunch: Salty Water, Mermaid Lagoon, Broken China, Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron.  This was all blended on white card stock using a Darice folder.

The sentiment was stamped using an Inkadinkado Stamp and blue glitter embossing powder on a pale green vellum.

A couple of teal and green sequins for the flower centers and all adhered to a top fold black cs base.



I hope you play along.  I can't wait to see your favorite colors!

Have a great day

Smiles ....

August 28


This my design team card for
Try Stampin' (or not) on Tuesday.
The sketch for this week is below and the theme is 'celebrations'

I started with yellow cs cut to card size and began to build from there.  The designer paper is from Recollections.  The two squares were cut from orange cs and I now will I used the same technique on the bottom square as the top.  I blended both Spiced Marmalade in Distress and Oxide using a stencil on the cs.  The stamp is from Inkadinkdo using black StazOn.
White satin ribbon under the paper and then I added some paper flowers.

You are special

She is adorable ... I masked her off and then blended Blue Print Sketch, Cracked Pistachio, and Festive Berries  distress inks across the paper.  Still masked, I then used a stencil and added Spiced Marmalade Oxide.  I used color pencils to color her in.  I cut her to fit and then off set it so that I could add the sentiment which was stamped with a Hampton Arts stamp and white embossing powder. I wrapped a blue satin ribbon and bow around the graphic and mounted it on a piece of black cs to frame it.   That whole piece was adhered to teal green top fold cs base.  A few blue sequins to a tiny bit of bling to the fun and there you have it.

Hugs ......



  This my design team card for Try Stampin' (or not) on Tuesday.
The sketch for this week is below and the theme is 'embossing'
       For this card I ran white cs through my cuttlebug with the Swiss Dot folder.  On a piece of white cs, I blended Wilted Violet, Abandoned Coral and Mermaid Lagoon distress inks and then blended Wilted Violet, Broken China and Peeled Paint Oxide inks over top.  I used Simon Says butterfly dies to cut the background butterfly and then the scrolled butterfly was cut from silver card stock.
        I had a piece of pink and white grosgrain ribbon and attached that to the white swissdot cs. I attached the butterflies just in the body center so that it will lift off of the card.
Then sentiment was cut from a piece of scrap pink cs using the Simon Says 'Big Hugs' die.
   All of this attached to a dark pink top fold cs base.




Here is the sketch of the week ...





I hope you have fun playing along ....
