Stamping out of a carry on : )

We took a week away to spend with my son, DIL and grandson this past week in Colorado.  I did bring a carry on bag with some craft supplies to create while the baby is taking his afternoon nap. 

I finally inked up my Stamptember Kitchen Sink Stamp set. I used 2 challenges at SCS, one the Teapotter challenge- we are sending cards to a beautician/hairdresser in Ca., that has breast cancer. We were asked to use scissors on our cards.  So, I stamped this image, then fussy cut out the flower/butterfly and popped it up on dimensionals.  I added the leaves below that. I added splatter using a Copic marker, by flicking the sketch point against the lid. The images were stamped using Distress inks. The sentiment was stamped using Gina K Amalgam black ink. 

I have a Pretty Pink Posh stencil in my bag and used Distress inks to ink it up, the pumpkin stems are colored using Copics. I had a couple of embossed pieces, this one is leaves by SU, and it works great, and I added this ribbon and twine.  This sentiment is by Create with TLC digi images. The mulberry flowers and the enamel dots were also in the bag in a baggie of embellishments to use up from past kits.  Perfect!

Exploding card : )

You know I like to join in the Splitcoaststampers challenges, and really love the Teapot Tuesday challenges where we send cards to cheer others up.  Today, the challenge is for a young lady who was in a horrific accident and she is asking for Halloween cards. 

I made an exploding card- for the Alpha challenge (also at SCS) and combined that with a Halloween card for our teapot recipient- just 31 and needs to learn to walk again after an auto accident car vs semi....2 fractured femurs, one lower left Tib/fib fracture, shattered ankle, torn spleen and rib fractures....bad bad accident!  She is now in a nursing home for rehab....  more surgeries in the future.....  
 This sweet witch and the cauldron are from CC Designs.  The bats are fussy cut from DP. The moon is a punched circle and colored with Copics. The DP is DCWV and KC & Co.  The backdrop is a Halloween embossing folder. When this card is 'closed' it is 6" x 6"

Alpha w= Watercoloring

I am trying to keep up with the Alpha challenges on SCS (Splitcoaststampers) - and W=watercoloring is the theme this week.

Most of my watercolors are Daniel Smith, but I do have some QOR and other brands mixed in.  I used a Unity Stamp on watercolor paper for this card. I added Glossy Accents over the beads on the purse and the back of the chair where it says Antiques. The sentiment strip is TH and inside is another Unity image that is a Birthday sentiment.

This image is from a swap on SCS, and I watercolored it and used the colors from SCS for my inspiration.  Some of the colors- I used Distress inks the sky- Bermuda Bay = Peacock Feathers Distress ink. The neutral -Mossy Meadows was added in using a Distress ink as well.  The sentiment is a MFT die. (It actually says Hello Beautiful ). The prompt for this card was for the Teapot Tuesday challenge last week.

World Stamping Day!

 I was able to craft today- and I loved it! I do not usually stamp on Saturdays.  

This card was inspired by the Inspiration challenge at Splitcoast.  I love this DP by Paper Studio and used it to create- added images from SImon Says Stamps to complete the card. 

I had a card kit sitting on my desk from the Christmas Crazy challenge on SCS, and this is from Pam (Pammers) . The image is from CC Designs.  I Colored it using Copic markers. I die cut the DP and added the fussy cut images.  I colored the image with Copics and added Stickles. The embellishments were in the kit as well.  I used twine and the die cut Holly and red brads. I added Stickles over that.  

Two more Christmas cards completed!
