Time Out #84 - Inspired by Words


This week over at Time Out blog, the challenge is Inspired by Words.  These are the words we are using.
"Flowers and friends make life a garden"

We are sponsored by Stamplorations for this challenge and I'm using this lovely stamp set called Blossoming.  I first stamped the frame (from Rubbernecker) onto watercolor paper then stamped the floral image in black and clear embossed it.  I used the Kuretake watercolor paints to color it.  These colors are so vivid. After watercoloring the floral image, I stamped the sentiment.  The watercolor panel is mounted on fun foam then on the black panel.  I added some sequins also.

Just Us Girls #394 - Color Week

Hey friends!  It's Color Week over at Just Us Girls, and Judy has chosen a great color combination.
 
I had this cute little stamp set on my desk and thought the colors would look cute on this piñata.  I stamped him with Versafine ink on Bristol paper so I could color it with Zigs then embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I also stamped and colored the candy pieces.  I die cut a tag from navy cardstock and stamped and embossed the sentiment.  I used a stencil and distress inks to create the background.  I sprayed it with shimmer spray also.

Casual Fridays Challenge #174 - Sketch

Hi friends!  There's a new challenge over at Cas-ual Fridays and it's a sketch challenge!  I love sketches!
No automatic alt text available.
 
Although I have to admit this one was a challenge for me!  Not in what I wanted to do, but it was lining up those envelopes and coloring them that gave me trouble!  I first tried using the MISTI, but that was a bust.  Then I just stamped them and used my eyes to line them up and that worked better.  But the copics weren't behaving on the Neenah cardstock I have so I changed to the copic paper (can't remember the name!) and that worked like a charm.  I colored the envelopes in rainbow order then cut it down to about a 3.75" square.  I stamped the sentiment on vellum, embossed with clear embossing powder, and wrapped it around the main panel.  That was added to the desert storm base on fun foam.  I added shimmer to each heart and some sequins.

Just Us Girls #393 - Trend Week

 Hey everyone!  It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls, and Sue chose to make a background using Distress Inks. 
 
I love the oxide inks so much!  I hope they come out with more colors soon!  I needed a sympathy card.  My husband's cousin lost her husband the other day.  He was only 51 years old.  I feel so bad for her because she is such a lovely person.  So I wanted to make a nice card for her.  I was low on creativity, so I cased a card in Papertrey Ink's gallery for the Painted Petals stamp set.  I started by die cutting the scalloped panel and sponging broken china distress ink on it.  I then spritzed it with water to get water marks (hard to see in the picture).  I stamped and die cut the flowers and leaves and adhered them to the panel.  The sentiment was stamped in black ink.  I also added some pink flowers and sequins to finish it off.

Time Out #83 - CASE Challenge


Hi everyone!  This week over at Time Out, we are CASE-ing a card of one of my favorite card designers...Hannelie Bester!

This is the card we are CASE-ing.  Hannelie's style is amazing and what she does with her Silhouette is equally amazing!  Gorgeous card! 
 
I created this card based on Hannelie's.  I used Distress Oxide inks to create the background.  I die cut the butterfly cover plate twice and layered to make it more sturdy.  I spritzed the butterfly die cut with shimmer spritz then splattered it with the amber and red inks.  I finished it off with crystals and a sentiment on a banner.
 
Stop by the Time Out blog to see what the design team and our guest, Susanne, created for this challenge. 
 
Thanks for stopping by!
