Vintage Thanks

Hello there, I'm back with a card for the current challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  I wanted to use some of the beautiful patterned papers that were part of a recent card kit from Simon Says Stamp and this sketch was perfect to highlight them, although I did change the orientation from landscape to portrait.






No ink or stamps were involved with this card!  A pretty unusual feeling for me, but the papers included some sentiments, one of which I used as the top horizontal piece.




The pretty print was layered on a base of Fog card stock after die cutting with a stitched rectangle die, then the center piece added to the middle.  The gorgeous Umber Etched paper took center stage and nicely highlighted the sentiment.  When I saw it in the kit, I was totally swooning, and nicely, SSS carries it for sale.






The wood heart and Rosewater Nuvo drops were added and the card was finished.  So quick to make but still lovely with all the different patterns and texture.




Thanks so much for visiting, it's always so appreciated!  I've added a link above to the challenge, so please be sure to head over there and check out all the beautiful inspiration!

12 Tags - Day 3

Hello again!  Yes a second post tonight, this time with a tag for the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist, Day 3.  I was totally inspired by Julie Ebersole's "Naturally Neutral" challenge and created this tag...




Pretty easy with the sentiment and stars stamped in Stampin' Up White Craft ink on the Crumb Cake tag, which was also sponged around the edges after cutting out with a Banners framelit.  The "greens" were adhered to the tag with a bow of Linen Thread then the Crumb Cake thick Baker's Twine was added at the top.  Pretty simple but I think that kept with the theme of this particular challenge. 






Thanks for taking a peek and I've added a link above so do be sure to check out Julie's challenge as well as the other daily challenges, and all the beautiful inspiration!

Warm Wishes

Hello crafty friends!  It's time for a new weekly Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers!  Pam is our host and she has chosen Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Silver as her colors, so beautiful for this time of year.  Dessert is to include Christmas/Jingle bells.





Well, I have to admit I made a mistake by not rechecking the colors before I made my card and for some reason I thought the metallic was gold not silver, so that's what I used on my card.  I started with a panel of Suzy's Watercolor Prints from Simon Says Stamp and water colored with Distress Inks and Starry Colors Metallic watercolor paints.  When the panel dried I used a fine point Black Sharpie to outline everything in the print, plus slightly enlarged the sentiment.




I decided to try to enhance the contrast of the colors and used colored pencils to deepen the shading of the leaves and petals.  I think it turned out okay for my first try with this technique but I'm still not totally satisfied because I couldn't get as smooth of a blend as I was hoping due to the texture of the watercolor paper, a little more evident in the photo below.  You'll also see some of the sparkle that was added to the leaves and petals with Clear Wink of Stella that could not be captured in the other photos.




When I was done with the watercolor panel, it was trimmed down and adhered to a black card base, then the frame of brushed gold card stock was added with foam tape and the card was finished!




Thanks so much for visiting, it's always so appreciated!  I've added a link to the color challenge above, so I hope you'll pop over there and check it out, and maybe play along this week!

Spreading Cheer

Hello friends!  Tonight I'm sharing a card made for the current "Let it Snow" challenge at Stamp Ink Paper.






I've used the cute Winter Sparrows from Lawn Fawn for a cheerful, snowy scene.  The sentiment is from a retired Stampin' Up set.




After stamping the sentiment the panel of Bristol card stock was ink blended with Salty Ocean Distress Ink around the edges, splattered with White Gouache  and die cut with a stitched rectangle die after drying.  The birds and branch were also stamped on Bristol, then the birds were colored with Zig Clear Color Real Brush markers (listed below).  They were adhered to fun foam, die cut with companion dies and added to the inked panel.




To add some additional interest the white card base was embossed with the largest A2 Stitched Rectangle Stax Die-namic from MFT, then the smaller panel was adhered with foam tape.  Such a simple card but I think it turned out pretty cute.


Thanks for visiting, as always it's so appreciated!  Above I've included a link to the challenge, so be sure to head over there and enjoy all the wonderful inspiration!

Snow and Peace

Hello again!  So glad you were able to take time to drop by my blog!  Tonight I'm hosting the new weekly Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  I've chosen Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point and Berry Burst.  Making a winter sky or winter scene is "dessert".






As I usually do, mostly because I can't help myself, I made two cards (actually I made more than 2 but I'm only sharing these tonight lol!).  The first card yet again uses the lovely Winter Cottage stamp from Altenew. 




I started by stamping the cottage scene with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink, then heat set it with clear embossing powder.  Using liquid masking fluid, I painted a horizon line.  Once that dried I used a paint brush to put down clear water in the sky section, then dropped in small drops of Rich Razzleberry ink right along the horizon and let it flow part way up the sky.  Next I used heavily watered down Berry Burst at the top of the sky, letting it travel down to the darker raspberry.  After drying, the masking fluid was removed and a light bit of Pacific Point ink was added along the top of the snow and White Gouache lightly flicked on the scene for snowfall.  I then die cut the scene with a stitched oval and layered it on a slightly larger oval of Pacific Point card stock.






I set the completed scene aside to create the rest of the card.  Two white card stock panels were sprayed it with Shimmer Spray.  One was run through the Big Shot with the Softly Falling embossing folder, the other with various dies from the Mini Holiday Greens die set.  When dry, the embossed panel was adhered to the card base, the "greens" added to the middle with tape, then the oval focal point layered on top with foam tape.  I colored each of the berries with Berry Burst ink and covered them with a clear glaze.  Not sure why they look so red in the photo...






My next card was made by ink blending the challenge colors on Bristol card stock.  If found to my dismay that Rich Razzleberry and Berry Burst were much closer in color than I expected when used in this fashion.  So, after experimenting with a couple of panels, I found if I carried the Pacific Point down over the Rich Razzleberry, it gave it a more violet hue and looked lovely against the berry color.  I also tried to use a lighter hand when ink blending the berry color in order to keep it from getting too dark.




The ink blended panel was sprayed with Shimmer spray and generously flicked with White Gouache to create the snow fall.  The snowflakes were die cut from a panel of white card stock also sprayed with Shimmer spray.  The sentiment was heat set with white embossing powder on Berry Burst card stock, then die cut with a scalloped oval.






Thank you so much for visiting and commenting, it's always so appreciated!  I've added a link to the color challenge above, I'd love it if you would join us this week!

12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist

Hello friends and welcome back!  It's time for Ellen Hutson's "12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist".  It's going on at The Classroom between December 1-12 with two fabulous designers every day.  There are prizes for commenting plus a big prize for the challenge that I'm entering, which is to make a tag inspired by one of the designers.  Be sure to use the link above and check out the inspiration and ways to win!






For my tag I was inspired by both Jennifer McGuire and Jessica Frost-Ballas on Day 1 of the challenge.  They made fabulous 3D tags and I thought it would be fun to try.  To effectively create the look, you need to use a symmetrical image, and what came to mind was to use a circle and make an ornament.  I plan on making more of these, but maybe use a star or a heart die.






I started by cutting out six 2" circles from Audrey Blue card stock, scoring them in half, then adhering them back to back with Be Creative tape (here's a link to Jennifer's blog post where she explains in more detail plus has a video).  Next the tag was die cut from thick card stock and also from a piece of festive patterned paper, which was adhered to the card stock tag.  With strong tape on both ends, the "ornament" was adhered to the tag.  Since I don't have a real ornament die I just hand cut a small rectangle from Silver Glimmer paper to represent the ornament top.






After adding the heat embossed sentiment and the silver cord bow and string, I decided it needed a bit more pizazz, so I searched through my stash and found the gorgeous Sea Glass Stickles and used it to go around all the edges.  I was a bit nervous doing so since the tag was essentially complete but I really like how it turned out.  I had to add a couple of layers, letting it dry in between, in order to get good coverage.






That's it for today!  Thank you so much for visiting and commenting, it's always so appreciated.  Come back tomorrow night, where I'll be posting my card for the new Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  I'm hosting this week so I will have a couple of cards to share.

Rustic Cottage

Hi there and welcome back!  Tonight I'm sharing a card made for the current challenge at The Paper Players.  Joanne has given us this wonderful sketch to play with and I was happy to get my card done in time before tomorrow's noon deadline!




PP 372




And here's my card:




The large oval in the sketch was perfect for the sweet Winter Cottage image, which I stamped in Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink and heat set with clear embossing powder.  I used masking fluid to create a horizon of "snow" and when it dried, put a light wash of blue ink in the sky.  Next Clear Wink of Stella was brushed across the snowy landscape and the roof of the cottage, then the entire image was splattered with some White Gouache to create the effect of falling snow and set aside to dry while I worked on the card base.




One of the designs from Wood Textures designer series paper stack was trimmed down, adhered to a panel of Early Espresso card stock and wrapped with Linen Thread.  Before tying on the white die cut branches with a separate piece of Linen Thread, the branches were brushed with Clear Wink of Stella, and the berries colored with the Wink of Stella pen dipped in Festive Berries ink.  The finished panel was then mounted on the white card base with foam tape.




The cottage scene was die cut and mounted on a Crumb Cake oval, popped up and added to the base with foam tape.  I searched around for something to use for the small circle in the sketch and found some long retired SU wood snowflakes, one of which was added with Mini Dimensionals.  I intentionally did not add a sentiment as I wanted the option of either using this as a Christmas card or for a relative's upcoming birthday and will add one in the interior when it's used.

Winter Cottage

Hello friends!  Tonight I'm sharing a quick post with a card made for the current challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  I'm still cranking out Christmas cards and I recently received the Altenew Winter Cottage stamp, a sweet little stamp that I've thought about getting for some time and finally acquired, and it's perfect for this sketch.




The image was stamped in Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink and heat set with clear embossing powder.  I used some masking liquid to create the snowline and cover the scene, letting that dry over night.  The next day I used a water brush and Distress Inks to create the sky, and after that thoroughly dried, removed the masking fluid and added blue highlights to the snow and a touch of yellow in the windows.




The scene and the Berry Burst layer were cut with Layering Circle dies.  I used Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist card stock for die cutting the greens that were adhered at the bottom of the circle.




Trying to keep the card CAS but add some interest, a panel of white card stock was die cut with a stitched rectangle die, then added to the white card stock base with foam tape.  Next the focal point with adhered to the panel, then the heat embossed sentiment circle was added with Dimensionals.  Clear Wink of Stella added the sparkle to the scene and the greens.

Iconic Winter Scene

Hello and welcome back!  Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating in the US!  My card today was made for the current challenge at Inspired by All the Little Things.  I found the colors so beautiful that I wanted to use them in creating a winter scene.








I started by heat setting the stamped trees from Iconic Christmas with white embossing powder on watercolor paper.  Because of the texture of the paper, the trees ended up with texture as well (they should be a smoother silhouette), which I finally decided looked kind of neat and went with it.  I used some masking fluid to create the delineation between the sky and snow, letting it dry overnight. 




I started with very watery Wilted Violet Distress Ink and used my paint brush to apply the ink next to the mask, then pulled it upward about an inch or so, blending it out so there was not hard line.  Once the ink thoroughly dried I removed the mask, wet the unpainted portion of the sky and added very watered down Picked Raspberry ink, blending it into the violet.  I then used Salty Ocean to add some shape to the "snow" and shadows under the trees.  Next the panel was sprayed with Shimmer Spray, and a bit of White Gouache was flicked on the panel.  When dry, the sentiment from the same stamp set was heat set with silver embossing powder.  




The corners of the panel and the plum card base were rounded with a punch, the panel mounted to the base with foam tape, then a few sequins were added to finish things off.

CC662 Kindness Blooms

Hi there!  I'm back with the new Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  Robin is our host and she has chosen the beautiful combination of Berry Burst, Tranquil Tide, Crumb Cake and Gold, and "dessert" is to color something, to which I say "yes please"!  I'm also joining the CAS challenge at SCS (link here) where the challenge theme is "Grateful".








For my card I decided to use the lovely large rose image from Birthday Blooms.  When this set first came out I could not stop using it, but it has since languished unused for a long time.  So, when I saw this week's challenge colors, out it came as I thought it would work perfectly.  The floral image was heat set on the panel of watercolor paper with gold embossing powder, then reinkers and a paintbrush were used for watercoloring.




After the watercoloring dried, I had to decide on a sentiment.  I needed something big to fill the space above the flowers, and ended up using lovely sentiments from Kind Flowers.  After heat setting the large part of the sentiment in gold embossing powder, the remainder of the sentiment was heat set on the small strip of Tranquil Tide card stock and adhered with foam tape after gold watercolor paint was splattered on the panel.  I also used the gold watercolor paint to color the stamen in the center of the flower.


 
The final addition were light green and clear sequins.

Iconic Snowflakes

Hello again!  Tonight I have another Christmas card to share with you.  Inspiration for the card comes from the current challenges at Freshly Made Sketches and Color Throwdown.











It was an easy choice to use snowflakes to represent the circles in the sketch and then when I saw the blues and silver of the color challenge, I knew I had the perfect combination.




The snowflakes were heat embossed on Tim Holtz watercolor card stock with silver embossing powder, as was the sentiment.  However, the sentiment did not come out well, so I redid it on a separate piece of watercolor paper and ended up layering it in the center with silver and light blue card stock.  Phew, love a good recovery, and frankly I think it added a nice element of interest.  But before adding those layers in the center, I used a waterbrush and lightly watercolored some Salty Ocean Distress Ink around the snowflakes then die cut the panel with a Stitched Rectangle die.  The panel and the sentiment rectangle were also sprayed with Shimmer spray before completing the panel.




The base was layered with a slightly smaller panel of Island Blue card stock, then the watercolor panel was adhered using Fun Foam to give some dimension.  I also used Fun Foam under the sentiment panel.  A few sequins were added then the card was complete.  While I couldn't capture the sparkle in the pics above (I think I need to give Santa a hint that I need a camera upgrade ;-), I brought the card back to my desk (I try to photograph in natural light) for a shot so you could see how glittery it turned out.

"Smooshed" Thanksgiving

Hello again and welcome back!  I needed 2 more Thanksgiving cards to send and I received a new garland die from Altenew that I wanted to play with, so I decided to use the "smooshed ink" technique to color the paper from which the garland and some leaves were cut.  I saw the current color challenge of yellow, rust and dark brown at Stamp Ink Paper and knew it would work perfectly for my cards.






I rolled out my craft mat, "smooshed" distress ink pads in Fossilized Amber, Rusty Hinge and Walnut Stain onto the mat, sprayed with clear water from a mister, then laid a 6 x 6 piece of watercolor paper onto the inks.  I pressed and held the paper onto the ink, then when I felt the paper had absorbed enough ink, I quickly pulled it up out of the ink so the colors wouldn't get too mixed.  After drying with a heat tool, it was die cut with the garland die and one of the leaves. I repeated the process to get enough inked paper for both cards, including leaves.  I did do some additional sponging to enhance the colors on the leaves after using the Vintage Leaves to stamp the images and die cutting them.




To build the card I started with an Early Espresso card base, layered on a smaller panel of Cajun Craze, and finally the die cut Very Vanilla panel.  I had to cut the garland in half then arrange it on the card in order to retain the A2 card size.  Next I tied the two leaves with Linen Thread and adhered them on top of the garland with glue dots at the corner, then a couple of Dimensionals to give the bottom leaf some lift.  I used the sentiment from the handy, dandy Teeny Tiny Wishes, stamped it on a banner, adhered it to the card, then glued on the cute wood acorn. 






Thanks for visiting and commenting, it's always sooo appreciated!  For those visitors in the US celebrating Thanksgiving, I hope you have a wonderful holiday.  I've added a link above to the challenge, so please be sure to head over there and enjoy all the beautiful inspiration!

Joyful Christmas

Hi there!  So glad you came by to take a look at my card!  It's one that I've made for three challenges-the White on White color challenge at The Paper Players, the inspiration photo at Inspired By All the Little Things, and the sketch challenge at Fab Friday.




PP 370










FF 125


Inspired by these challenges, I decided to use a well loved Christmas stamp set that I hadn't used in a few years.  The large poinsettia in the Joyful Christmas set is so lovely and I thought it would work well as the focal point in the sketch.  I stamped and heat embossed three flowers on vellum, which were fussy cut, brushed with Clear Wink of Stella and set aside as I created the base.




A panel of white card stock (previously sprayed with Shimmer spray and dried) was embossed with the Holly embossing folder, wrapped with some lace trim (acquired years ago at Joanne's), then adhered to a white card base with foam tape.  Silver Nuvo drops were added to the embossed "berries" to provide a bit more contrast but still staying neutral.  I let those dry overnight, then layered the fussy cut poinsettia in the center.  I actually had to replace the small center layer because I tried to add Silver Nuvo drops in the middle that decided they wanted to become as one on the slippery vellum ha ha!  So, with the new layer in place I decided to add a few Basic Pearls.




My intention with this card is to use it as a Christmas card but it occurred to me it would also work equally as well as a winter wedding card with the lace trim.  I intentionally did not include a sentiment on the front, instead I will add something on the card interior when it's time to send it.  I think in the close up below you can see some of the shimmer on the poinsettia.  IRL the whole card just sparkles!




Thank you so much for visiting and commenting, it's always so appreciated!  Above I've added links to the challenges, so please be sure to head over to them and enjoy all the amazing inspiration!
