Sketch

 A rare (for me) card using no stamping!  I will put a sentiment on the inside. 


I rec'd this beautiful die from a SCS crafter.  I love it!  I used the Sketch challenge at SCS and some beautiful Carta Bella from Hobby Lobby. I added rhinestones and used the B95 Copic to color in the rhinestones.

Galaxy

 I decided I needed to make a galaxy background.... I used a Sketch layout as my inspiration.....


  Every Wednesday, there is a sketch challenge at Splitcoast.  I made this for the latest challenge. I cannot remember who creates this digital image- it was in my huge- to use digi image folder.  I always think that I should not the company when I print them...but don not always follow through.....
 I used Distress inks on the background, added black soot over the top.  I added splatters in white and in shimmer. The stars were cut out of glitter paper. The image had been printed out - I generally print on a lighter weight cardstock Georgia Pacific (but I can only assume). I colored the image using Copics and added shimmer using Wink of Stella. 
 Finally, I added the sentiment strip- from Simon Says Stamps. 

Waving hello- and I know I am behind on blog commenting- I promise to get by in the next week!

Splitcoast DIrty Dozen

Kinda of a shock for me recently- I was asked to join the Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen Design team!  my 6 months are up, so sharing a card I used to fit into a challenge theme for the month. 



 Almost everything I used on this card is from Simon Says Stamps.  I love this die, and love creating using techniques and Mixed Media. The sentiment is SSS.

In the Clouds

The Classy Card ladies are creating with the theme of "In the Clouds".  Jeanette and Kelly are our hostesses and I am on team Jeanette- here are the cards I created with her kit : 


We have company here- DS, DIL and GS.  SO I am going back to 1990...lol  I traced the silver SU metallic card using a circle and hand cut it, the piercing done with a sewing machine needle..... The acetate is from a carton of blueberries....  the sequins were in the kit, but I love the window looking at the white clouds. I fussy cut the clouds and the Hot air balloons.  The sentiment will be added on the inside. 


For this card, I used the DP (Jeanette's stash) and added the sentiment, which was die cut from a Spellbinders die. The clouds were backed with the SU silver metallic card. The hot air balloon was fussy cut and added over a strip of the metallic ribbon. 


Our kit from Jeanette included:
Image/Sentiment:
Fun Stampers Journey Fly Away
Embossing folder- Darice Clouds
SU Ballet Blue
Ribbon- SU or Bazille
Recollections enamel dots
Sequins- stash (Jeanette's stash)


Here are the links to the other Pearls and Diamonds- hop on around to see what the other ladies made with the exact same kit : )

Tweet and Sketch

Todays Sketch challenge at SCS was a nice simple one, and I turned it on its side. I combined it with a Teapot Tuesday card with a summer theme. 


I love birds and birdwatching. That is, as long as their singing does not wake me up at 4:30AM....LOL  I have quite a few bird feeders in my backyard, and a camera set up to take pictures, especially during migration.  I also love House Mouse images, so here is a fun card using both!
  The image was colored using Copic Markers. I did some stitching on the outer cardstock layers and piercing on the main panel. I die cut the letters using a Memory box alpha die cut.

Best Wishes Fore You

 This card is for a friend's husband, Larry, who fell and broke his hip.  He likes to watch golf and basketball.

 


 I originally bought this image for a card for my hubby. He loves sports.  He goes out and plays golf a few times each summer. And, he and college friends also go out and play winter gold- snow or not- and if there is snow, they golf with orange balls and take shovels with them.  
 Anyway, I thought Larry would get a chuckle out if this- image by Whipper Snapper and the sentiment is by Amuse. I colored using the packaging of the stamp as a guide.

Inlaid die cuts

For the Alpha challenge, we were challenged to make a card using Inlaid die cuts.  I have chosen a die cut that I have not used before.....  



And, the inverse, 


 I found a technique sheet in my stash, and a red cardstock that would coordinate.  I placed 2.5" double sided tape on the reverse of each and die cut them, then filled in all of the pieces- yep, there were lots of pieces.  I am pleased with how they came out : )  
  I used sentiment embellishments so as not to cover up much of the base of the cards. I really like how they came out. This is a fun technique- if you have not tried it, I recommend it!  Although, maybe a less intricate die cut for starters would be better!
 The first card features a Hero Arts stamp and die set, and the 2nd Sweet n Sassy sentiment.

Water fun

 I made up a card for the Inspiration challenge at SCS, and used water in 2 ways.  Water themed images and Wrinkle Free Distress technique to apply the Distress inks. 


For wrinkle free distress, I dab ink from the DI pad on my craft mat, then spritz with water.  Dip your cardstock into the watered down ink and you get a great look. 
 The brown ink (sand) is ink brush blended on, and Choc chip ink watered down then spritzed onto the card. I also added water drops. 
 All of the images , My Favorite Things, were colored using Copics and Zig waterbrush markers. I used a white Signo paint pen for the white ripples in the water. 

Challenges-TBA

Teapot Tuesday- White on White

 White on White has always been a struggle for me- but if you want to overcome, you have to try and try again!!!  LOL


The Teapot Tuesday challenge is White on White this round.  I used Recollections #110 white cardstock, the bottom layer embossed with a 3D EF by Sissix. Next, I diecut flowers in white by Sissix . I wanted to use lace and ribbon, and added some shimmery white DMC. I added a white satin bow and a white mulberry flower. 
  My die cut flowers were just floating around, so I added a small cone holder, and added a touch of the lace to that as well.  Sequins finished off the card.

Created for the Sketch challenge at SCS- a slimline card.


  I had this little sweet bee in my 'Use It' pile from Vera Lang Studio. I thought it was great for this fun bee themed card. I stenciled thru a die cut from Cheery Lynn Designs using Scattered Straw Distress ink. Copics were used to color the image. There is Wink of Stella on the wings of this sweetie. Hope you'll pop over to Splitcoast and join us!

Surfboard Inspiration

 The Inspiration challenge at SCS pointed us to a Surfboard art site- and we were to be inspired to create from that art. I was inspired by THIS Surfboard : )


While I should be cleaning, I am distracted by the items from an earlier crafting session.....  I looked at SCS and had to put this card together quickly.  I just got this fun set from MFT and am having fun using it, as you can see from my last 2 posts : )

We have company coming tomorrow, so I had better finish my chores and get to bed!

Virtual Stamp night

 This weekend is VSN at Splitcoaststampers.  I could not create until today, and just made a few cards....  

 First, we are to make shimmery wings:


 I inked up a White glossy cardstock with Copic reinkers G24 and V12 plus AI blending solution.  I stamped the image with Tuxedo Memento Black and colored with Copics. Wink of Stella was added for shimmer.  I added an oval vellum layer. Sequins are a better match IRL. 



 This one was so fun. The background was made using coffee. I used the Embossing powder lid in Versamark and embossed using Queens Gold EP by Ranger around the coffee stained circles. I sponged Versamark on the edges of the card, and added the EP to it. The fairy image by Nellie Snellen was stamped in Versamark and embossed in black EP. 
 The die cut was cut in Mixed Media cardstock.  The base was colored using Zig markers. Winl of Stella was added over the top.  The flowers were die cut, colored using Copics and Versamark marker used to add Queens Gold EP in the centers. 

 Finally, a card with the theme of a Witch.....  


A nice and sweet witch!  Colored using Copics, and Distress ink along the outer edge. I added watermarks and Wink of Stella in the background. I also added SU star sequins to the card. The image is by Finders Keepers.

Calm vs Storm

 I am trying to catch up on all of the cards I wanted to get created this past week- and didn't!!!  First, is for last weeks Teapot recipient John, who is having health issues.  He lives close to water and loves sailing!


The DP from Paper Studio 'Spoke to me'...aka I thought it would be perfect as a backdrop for this image.  The image and the sentiment are by Impression Obsession, both are embossed using black EP.  I used Arteza art brushes and a white paint pen to add color. The corrugated border was swiped with gesso, and I also added Nuvo glimmmer paste over it.  I added Wink of Stella to the tips of the waves and the sun. 
 I grew up in a river town, the river was in our backyard, so we always had a boat.  So calm and peaceful out on the water!  I have only been on a sailboat once or twice though.....

Hope you have a fabulous day!

Wheelie Miss You

I tried something new for the Sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers.... it's called a Shutter Gate card.  It was much easier than I expected, and love the effect you get when opening it up!



Inside and belly band:



 This is the reverse side of the DSP from the front.  I have had it for a few years...and it is by SU.  The image is MFT and is colored using Copic markers. I cut the image using the Scan n Cut, then fussy cut a bit more. 

My youngest is a soil scientist, not really a gardener, sending this out to her : )

Ruff, Ruff, Ruff you!

 A fun and shimmery card for the Tuesday Teapot challenge (last week).  


Last week, we sent well wishes to Lee Ann in Colorado who is having health challenges.  She has lots of pups, so one of the challenges themes was dogs. Another theme was tie die- and while this is not tie die, it kinda came close- and is a shimmery spray, so nice and vibrant and shimmery!  
The Dogs are TH stamp set and I stamped and fussy cut them.  (I have a Scan n Cut, but sometimes fussy cutting is therapeutic!!!). 
Each pup is presenting a way to the owner to engage in play with them....one wants tennis balls thrown to him/her, one wants to walk, one wants a bone : ) The images were colored using Copic markers. All eyes on the owner- and how much love and joy they give us!!!

Alpha=D=Distressed

For round 15 of the Alpha challenge, D=Distress.  The Alpha challenge is over at Splitcoaststampers.com and is a great group of ladies!


  I took out some very old paper packs (that are white core) and cut out a bunch of these flowers and leaves, and put them together. The flower die is TH. The 3D embossing folder behind the flowers is TH Sizzix. The layers behind that- more cardstock from the same paper stack.  I distressed the green cardstock, and it left the white core exposed, so I used Wasabi ink to color the edge of that.  All of this loaded onto a white card. I left it without a sentiment, I will add one as needed.

Beach Life

For the sketch challenge at Splitcoast, I went to the beach : )


The precolored image is from Jan's Digital images. I printed out a 2nd image on copy paper and made a mask for the image.  Then, I used stencils for the water (Sweet Stamps) and the sky (A Colorful Life).  The sand is Distress inks. For the Sketch challenge, I added the strip of embossed cardstock and it had Distress ink dragged over the embossed pattern.  The sun die cut was in a card kit- I love it!

Grad 2021

 I made a few Grad cards for 2021 graduating seniors for my daughters students : )


 I used a number of dies for this card- the letters and numbers are cut from Blue glitter paper. I just found a sidekick and the numbers came with it : )  The student die (I think is from Spellbinders...).. is cut using a Gina K blue cardstock, and I layered it on a white card, the same as the base (Recollections 110#). I used white shimmer cardstock for the embossed grad hat layer, and layered it on silver mirror cardstock. The star is a TH silver glitter paper.

Sympathy

 I think I send the latest Sympathy cards of anyone I know- I think they need to be handmade by me (aka...I refuse to buy them)......  So, hubby asked me to make a Sympathy card (for a friend who passed away) for a wife of his friend, so I made it frilly. 


 So I chose to use the Sketch challenge at SCS (for this week) for my layout. I turned it on its side.  The digital image is by Angie Blom , coloring was done with Copics. The sentiment company is unknown. I stamped and embossed the sentiment with black EP.  
 The background is Distress Oxide inks in Speckled Egg, Faded Jeans and Broken China.  I added a touch of splatter using white acrylic paint.

 I find color challenges just that- challenging : )  I decided to combine the colors using coordinating colors of Alcohol inks via Copic reinkers. BG10, Y21 and G21.  



 I added a die cut that was a RAK, added Scattered Straw stickles as an accent. A Simon Says Stamp sentiment strip was added.

Over the Moon

 I have completed my 6 months of Dirty Dozen at SCS this month, so can now get back to making more cards for challenges and just for the heck of it.  And, should be around to comment weekly like before!


 The Clean and Simple challenge is to use a moon.  Do you think this qualifies for CAS???  Distress inks were added to the background- and I used complimentary colors-purple and yellow- hence the tinges of brown....  I added black soot over the top.  Splatters of white paint added and dots of Stardust gelly roll pen for a little sparkle. The astronaut was colored sparingly and a little gray added to the moon.  Sweet little guy- think I will send this to my Grandson : )

 The cute House Mouse image is by Stampendous. The body/fur is colored using Copics.  The party hat and confetti are watercolored using the DOX inks used on the background.

Teapot Tuesday

 This week, out Teapot Tuesday recipient at Splitcoast is Jeanne- she has lost most of her vision.  She was an avid stamper and can no longer partake,  



 I have a new die by Sizzix for TH, and used a stack of card in my stash that I used in different colors to cut out flowers. I used a number of them to die cut out different colors of flowers, and for this card, I used a yellow and blue color theme. I made quite a few of these flowers.  

 The sentiment is by Colorado Craft company. 

  My Dad had macular degeneration, and I know how he would use his other senses to navigate the environment.  I used dimension on this card for Jeanne.  I hope she enjoys it!

Splitcoast sketch challenge

 I was invited to join the Sketch challenge team at Splitcoast for 6 months.  We post cards each Wednesday.  The 2nd Wednesday of each month, we have a 'bonus' challenge to do a fun fold.  This week is the Swing Easel card




 I dug into some DP that I purchased thinking it was cheery and 'Spring' themed.  I also used stamps new to me from Pretty Pink Posh.  I stamped and embossed the images with black EP. I used Zig waterbrush markers to color in the images.  The wings are colored using a Wink of Stella pen. The bees are up on dimensionals.  
  The sentiment is by SU and is punched using a SU oval punch.  I fussy cut out the layer behind it. 

A fun challenge and a fold I had not tried before!

Under His Feathers.....

 I created a card for the Teapot Tuesday challenge at Splitcoaststampers, and used the colors from the color challenge as well. The Teapot party this week if for a fellow Alpha challenge member- she lost her Mother 2 years ago and we are sending her a bug HUG!


I colored the image from Angie Blom digi Designs with Copic markers. I used a cloud stencil from A Colorful Life. The sentiment is by Our Daily Bread (Divinity Designs).  It needed a little something, so I lined the bottom cardstock with 1/4" double sided sticky tape and added Oyster glitter to the edge. 

   Reflecting back on our own mothers- and my memories of things she enjoyed- flowers, birds and her faith were all really important to her. To unwind, she painted porcelains and was a teacher of her art. 

Happy Mother's Day to all who celebrate.  Big Hugs to those who have lost their Mom's- mine passed 12/2018. And, to all who are special to others- whether you are an Aunt, a friend, etc....  Big Hugs to you as well!

Alpha + Sketch

I combined the first Alpha challenge (round 15) at SCS (Alcohol Inks) with the current Sketch challenge. 


I made the Alcohol ink background using pink and green Copic reinkers on white glossy cardstock.  I stacked green and pink cardstock and embossed them.  I added strips of sticky tape on the background and added gilding flakes.  Next, I cut a square of white cardstock and added double sided sticky tape, then added gilding flakes to that. Next, I die cut out a butterfly from that square. I used my circle punch and punched out three dots from the waste from the butterfly square of cardstock as an embellishment. 

These colors are so me : )  I love pinks.  A fun creative session!

 This is pretty CAS for me, but love the simplicity and the image too.  The finished card is 5" x 7"
