More VSN cards

 We have company, so no time in the craft room, but I wanted to post a few more of the VSN cards I made.  VSN at Splitcoaststampers is over, and the prizes are being posted now : )

 For the line dancing themed challenge, we were to use boots.


 This image is by Kitchen Sink Stamps.

 The next card is for the VSN mini sketch challenge:

The image is Great Impressions and is colored using Copic markers. 


This card was created using a challenge that is a song called Fishing in the Dark.  I had no stamps that suited the theme very well, so I made a card of literal Fishing in the dark.  The couple image is Inkadinkado and the trees Newtons Nook. 


 
 Hoping your weekend is going well!

Crafters of Faith

July 2020: Hostess/Kelly

Scripture: Psalm 33:12 (KJV) Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.

Challenge: July is often remembered for the 4th of July, backyard BBQ's, picnics and school being out for the summer! Let's take a moment to reflect that it also means a great freedom for all of us and celebrate spiritually as well. Create a card/project with a flag somewhere on it - either a stamp, die cuts, the colors red/white/and blue!

I combined the COF challenge with the Technique Lovers Challenge at Splitcoast this week.  I took Distress ink reinkers and placed them on a baby wipe, then swiped them across a piece of Glossy white CS in Red and Blue, then once dry, stamped and embossed onto it. 


  I chose to use the colors of R/W/B on my card and stamped and embossed over it. The Hope sentiment lead the idea for the card. 

 The Crafters of Faith is a group over at Splitcoast and is open for new crafters : )

Thanks for stopping by!

Jan's Digi Stamps-July challenge

For Jan's Digi Stamps July challenge, I chose to use a Christmas themed digi:



 I used the digi set called Christmas Cardinal for the card.  I colored using Copics and added stickles for sparkle.  I love that Jan has pre-colored images, but this one I wanted to color myself  I love that the areas where the snow.ice is, it printed in blue- so perfect!!! 
  I love Cardinals and they so remind me of loved ones who are not here with us anymore : )

 For the Month of July, all Christmas sets at Jan's Digital Stamps are 25% off. 

We hope to see you join in the challenge at Jan's!

VSN- Crescendo

 The VSN  (Virtual Stamp Night) at Splitcoaststampers, well there are still a few days to post cards- through 7/6.  I volunteered to host a challenge- the theme was music. 
 My challenge was Crescendo- to increase intensity and use watercolors. 


 I used Daniel Smith watercolor paint on these samples- I used three papers, Lt-Rt- Recollections, Mixed Media and Arches Watercolor paper. 

 

 This card was made using digi images from Graciellie Designs, colored using Copic markers.  The image was die cut on recollections cardstock using a Memory Box Stitched rectangle die. 

 And another take on this challenge- I used die cut from panels of 'Crescendo' onto a panel of the technique. 


 I am almost done with the challenges, 7 to go in the next few days- we'll see if I can complete them!!!  We have company coming on Thursday for a week- and one of the visitors is my Grandson- just one in May......  Not much creating will be done I think.......

Thanks for stopping by!

Virtual Stamp Night part 2

 The challenges for VSN went live Friday, and I had a fun time creating.  Here are a few more cards created for the challenges.



This card was made for the VSN Mini challenge and the theme was to use 2 blues. The main panel is a Shaving Cream and Brusho technique. I cut out a Memory Box floral diecut. The sentiment is white embossed on back cardstock- and is by Hero Arts. 




This card is for a California Girl theme- Surfin Safari.  The images are all SU and Distress Inks are used for the background. I think it would be great to be here right now..... : )



This stamp set is unmarked, so not sure where it is from, the cards are by Hero Arts.  The theme for this challenge is Summer in the City- no one on the roads- they are at the beach in the scene above : )

There are 22 challenges total, so lots of different cards to create- stop by and play along!

 This weekend is Virtual Stamp Night = VSN at Splitcoast.  A challenge is posted each hour and there is a theme to follow.  There is a musical theme for the challenge.

Alpha "M"

  The Alpha challenge at SCS is on the letter "M" his week.  I have a love for the House Mouse stamps, so used one on my card this week.


  The image is colored using Copic markers.  The background DP was too pretty to cover up completely, so I die cut a portion of the die cut rectangle smaller than the actual size of the die cut b
y simply moving the die over a bit.
