I created this card for a color and sketch challenge on Splitcoast. I also wanted to try out the Eggshell Mosaic Background that was published  a few weeks back.

My heart started as a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut with a Classic Heart Nestabilities die. I adhered egg shells with Multi Medium Matte Glue.  Once the glue dried, I sprayed the shells with Perfect Pearls Glimmer Mist and added Alcohol Inks (Butterscotch, Sunset Orange, Wild Plum and Pool). More Perfect Pearls was sprayed and then the heart was set aside. Once it dried, another layer of Multi Medium glue was added, this time the glossy kind.

The card base is a 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Solar White cardstock, folded in half. The bottom corners were rounded. Marigold Tattered Angels Mist was sprayed in the center of the card front. Next a background script from My Favorite Things First Class Friend was stamped in Dandelion Memento Ink.

One of the little circle images was stamped in Jet Black Archival ink on white cardstock and punched out with a 3/4″ circle punch.  The wavy part of the post mark was stamped on the left side of the card. The heart was adhered to the right hand side , the circle sentiment placed so hangs slightly off the left of the card, right over the postmark wave.

First class was stamped in Jet Black on white cardstock and cut out. Friend is part of a sentiment and was stamped to the left side. The First class was adhered slightly over it. A paper pierced row on the right next to the heart finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

I created this card on Wednesday for the Sketch Challenge on SCS. It’s another CAS card. I seem to be on a CAS kick since the last VSN.  For my card I started by stamping a sentiment from Technique Tuesday’s Thanks for Everything in Jet Black Archival ink on Kraft cardstock and cut it out by hand. The flower from the same set was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored with Spectrum Markers (BT2, BT4, BT5, BT7, CT2, CT4, GB5, OR1). It was cut out as well and adhered to the left hand side of the sentiment panel.

The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half. The bottom corners were rounded. The edges of a 1 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ strip of Echo Park’s Everyday Eclectic Paper were sanded and top and bottom edge stitched. Another piece of paper from the same Echo Park paper was cut and embossed with the second largest Romantic Rectangle die die and the edges were sanded.

The rectangle was adhered first to the center of the card. Next the stitched strip was adhered partly over the rectangle to the right. White Crochet Ribbon was adhered over the left edge of the strip. The image and flower layers were adhered to the lower right with foam adhesive squares. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone swirl over the flower finishes off the card.

 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful Sunday.

Two days ago I cyber stamped with sweet Heather Jensen. I needed a stamping friend to get started. I have had quite a lot of headaches lately. While my migraine gets better with the new medicine, it makes me tired and I do not fee like stamping. So it’s good to have friends to get you back in the groove. We picked a HYCCT Challenge and both made a card for it!

I just love the new Whimsy Wee Stamps. I had to order some right away. For this sample I used the new Sweet Blossom image. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and cut with a Label 18 Nestabilities die and the Out of the Box Technique.  The image was colored with Copic Markers (Skin: E000, E00     Hair: Y21, Y23, E31, E33     Headband/shirt: YG11, YG13, YG17     Stockings: E0000, E30, E31     Flowers: Y11, Y15, Y17      Branch: E35, E39, E29    Leaves: YG21, YG23 Bear: E30, E31, E33).

The image was masked, some cloud masks were added and the label was airbrushed with Copic Marker B02. Yellow Stickles was added over the flowers and butterflies.

 

I chose the colors for this card so it would fit for Lori’s Hope You Can Cling to Challenge. The challenge was to use the colors brown, green and yellow which represent Hope and Comfort. The layout is from this weeks Sketch challenge.

A yellow piece of Rosy MME Lost & Found Two paper was stitched to a slightly bigger piece of  Canyon Brown cardstock, cut and embossed with a Long Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities die. A 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of paper from the same paper pack was stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Canyon Brown cardstock. The scalloped rectangle layer was adhered to the layers.

A  white paper strip was cut and embossed with a Floral Doily Accent die and stitched to a 1 1/4″ x 5 7/16″ strip from yet another patterned paper from that pack. The strip was adhered under the rectangle layers. White Organdy ribbon was tied around the layers and topped with a yellow Basic Grey Button. The image was adhered over the layers with dimensionals.

A Finesse Rhinestone swirl was into pieces and parts were used on the top right and lower left of the image.  A sentiment from Whimsy’s The Good Life Tickets Stamp set. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Circle Nestabilities die and airbrushed with copic Marker B02. It was adhered to the left side of the image. Three silver Rhinestones were adhered underneath the sentiment. The layers were adhered to the card base, as 9″ x 5 3/4″ piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.

I created this card in March for a Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast.  I started out with printing out the Happy Little Gnome on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut it with a Small Label Nestabilities die and colored it with Copic Markers (Skin: E50, E51, E53, pants and hat: BG11, BG32, BG45, Shirt and Patch: Y32, Y17, YR15, YR18, hearts: R02, R05, Socks (E23, E25, E27, E29, Sky: B0000, B000, grass: YG11, YG13, YG17).

The image was layered on a piece of Canyon Brown cardstock that had been cut and embossed with a Jumbo Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities die. The edges of the image were paper pierced.

All the patterned paper used on this card are from the Fine and Dandy True Blue My Mind’s Eye Paper. The diagonally strip is 2 1/2″ wide. Two white strips were cut and embossed with the Eyelet Borderabilities die and adhered under the diagonal strip. The strip was adhered to a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of the same paper pack. The lower corners were rounded before decorative stitching was added.

Three buttons were stitched to the lower left of the layers before they were adhered to a card base, a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half.

The sentiment is from Whimsy Treasured Moments Tickets. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with Petite Oval Nestabilities and colored with Copic Markers YR30 and YR31. A small Cappuccino Twine bow on the side of the sentiment panel finish of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
