The Card Concept Challenge #74

Hi all!  It's time for a new The Card Concept Challenge!  The inspiration pic is a beauty, for sure!  I embossed my stamp onto watercolor paper then colored it with my Zig pens and some water.  The 'hello' die is an older MFT die-namic (I couldn't find it on their site) that I cut out of gold foil paper and pink lemonade card stock, then layered them.  And of course, some gold sequins to add the finishing touch.




Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to play along with us :)

We're Mermaid for each other

Hi all!  Here's a card I made for the latest MFT sketch - MFTWSC333.   I feel in love with this BB Mermazing stamp set the second I saw it!  I did some no-line coloring on her using my Copics.  The background was created with two different Ranger Distress Inks and some water.

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Time!

Hi all!  Happy Friday!  It's time for a new CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!  This week we have a very cool sketch for you!  I broke out the 4 Petals Fri-dies for this one.  Now, there was no special trick I used to line up the die.  I just eyeballed it.  It's not perfect and I'm ok with that.  ;)  I used a Jennifer McGuire trick and adhered strips of card stock to a separate piece of scrap paper and adhered the black die-cut card stock over the top of it with foam adhesive.  The sentiment is from the Wallflower Stamp set that is retiring (so grab it will you can!!!).




Thanks for stopping by!  We hope you'll play along with us!

The Card Concept Challenge #73

Hi all!  It's Hump Daaaaayyy and time for a new challenge on The Card Concept Blog!  This week is a cool one that made me go with a little more of a distressed look - haven't done that in a bit!  I used the Birch Press Design Paradiso Butterfly dies (layers A, B and C).  I layered them together then adhered them to a background I created with an MFT background stamp.  I sponged the edges of that layer with some Ranger Distress ink.  The sentiment is also from Birch Press Design.



Thanks for stopping by!  We hope that you play along with us!

CAS-ual Fridays Inspiration Challenge!

Hi all!  Welcome to my first post as a CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Inspiration team member!  Our challenge this week is to use 6 of anything on your project.  Why 6?  Glad you asked!  It's the 6th anniversary of our Challenge Blog!  YAY!!!  :)    I used the gorgeous Mon Ami stamp set for my card.  I stamped the flower 6 times then used 6 different Zig pens to color them in.  The sentiment is also from this set and was embossed directly onto the black licorice card base.  A pretty simple design for any occasion.

The Card Concept Challenge - Hello

Hi all!  It's time for another challenge on The Card Concept Blog!  You are sure to be inspired!  I loved the colors and all of the flowers from the inspiration picture, so I broke out my Flashy Florals set from MFT.  I added sequins to all of the flower centers.  I cut out 'hello' die-namic three times - once with Sno Cone card stock, the other two with white card stock then staggered them slightly when adhering them so you can see a tiny bit of the Sno Cone card stock.  The flower layer and card base are Primitive White card stock.







Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet Stamp Shop - New Release!

Hi all!  I'm so excited to be a guest designer for the Sweet Stamp Shop!  I absolutely love the stamps they are releasing this month!  I previously served in the Air Force (nope, not a pilot) and my husband retired from the Air Force after 23 years of service last year.  To say we love our military is an understatement!  I colored the image for this card with Copics, adding 'shine' to his glasses with a white gel pen.  The stars on the background are from the same set, as are the sentiments.

Thinking of ewe

Hi all!  Here's a card I made for the Reverse Confetti's latest SFYTT47.  I couldn't resist this little lamb from the All About Ewe set, along with the matching dies.  I colored the lamb, fence and flowers/grass with Copics, using my colorless blender to create her spotted wool.  ;)   The patterned paper is from the Posh paper pad by Simple Stories.  The sentiment was embossed with white EP.

Let's kick it soon

Hi all! Here's my card for the latest MFTWSC324 sketch challenge.  I couldn't resist these ninjas from the Ninja-mazing stamp set!  I colored him with Copics.  I stagger-stamped (that's what I'm calling it, lol) the sentiment in Field Green and Black Licorice inks.  I also couldn't pass up the Black & White Basics paper pad.

Create Together with Marcie - You are wonderful

Hi all!  I am here today with a card for a Create Together collaboration post with Marcie Sharp.  That girl is a hoot and super talented!  We decided on a butterfly/Spring theme so I HAD to use these newly released Paradiso Butterfly Layered dies from Birch Press Design!  Yes, the black, yellow and white parts of the butterfly here are all card stock layers.  I used foam adhesive to adhere it to some a piece of card stock I had inked with Ranger Distress Inks then spritzed with water to get the cool effect you see here.  The sentiment is from the also newly BPD released clear stamp set, Close to the Heart.  Gorgeous, people!  Simply a gorgeous set!




Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to check out what Marcie created for our Create Together post.  I know you'll be amazed!  :D
