Addicted to CAS ~ Challenge #200

It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS. I'm proud to be the host for this challenge. 


I picked the code word "sun" quite awhile back and I can't recall what I had in mind. I thought about sun rays or sun stencils. However, I thought I'd do something a bit different, how about a setting sun? Here's my card


For this one layer card, I created a circle mask using Sizzix circle dies and a post-it note. I added colors using distress inks - wild honey, ripe persimmon, fired brick, dusty concord, applied with an ink blending tool. I added the silhouettes using Technique Tuesday's Wildflowers stamp set and Versafine Onyx Black ink. I removed the mask and added the sentiment, using Poppy Stamps' Peony Stems and Blossoms stamp set and Versafine Onyx Black ink. 

We'd love to see how "sun" inspires you!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #425

WOW! Am I ever feeling like a slug or at least, I'm moving like one (minus the gooey trail). It's already Tuesday and I missed posting my card for the new challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge


Here's my card


I started with some striped patterned paper. I had my Lawn Fawn Life is Good stamp set out so I proceeded to stamp the shovel and pail and the tiny shell with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the images with Copic markers E21, E33, E43, R29, W2, Y17, trying to match the colors of the patterned paper. I die cut the images out with the matching Life is Good dies. I die cut the light teal circle using Sizzix circle dies. I die cut the "sand" using dark craft paper, Creative Memories 12" decorative trimmer and the same Sizzix circle die. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Hero Arts Strawberry ink.

Maybe I need some down time at the beach ...

Hi Friends. I'm here to remind you of our June challenge at STAMPlorations CAS


Here's my card


Earlier this month, I added light blue to cream cardstock to use the optional theme of light blue and cream. Now, I'm adding cream to light blue cardstock. On a light blue A2 card panel, I used STAMPlorations ARTplorations Bloomdalascopic #3 stencil and Color Box Frost White Pigment stamp pad, applied with an ink dauber. For the sentiment, I used a stamp from STAMPlorations Gratitude Trees stamp set. I used Versamark ink with white embossing powder on a scrap of black cardstock. The sentiment was heat set and trimmed to a small rectangle. 


We'd love for you to join us this month. You still have time.

Perfectly CAS ~ Challenge #16

We have a new challenge at Perfectly CAS. For the next month, our challenge is


Here's my card


For my card, I chose to ink up the bottom, right corner. I started by stamping this cute gopher (?) using Your Next Stamp's Digger stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I added color with Copic markers (C5, E25, E59, Y38). I created a mask using a post-it note of digger and placed it on top of the colored image. Using The Crafter's Workshop's Mini Cell Theory stencil and pumice stone and hickory smoke distress inks, I added the "rocks" around Digger making sure to ink up less that one-third of the card to keep this card in line with the rules of Perfectly CAS. For the sentiment, I used Newton's Nook's Farming Fun and Hero Arts Charcoal ink to complete my one layer card.

We'd love to see your "corner" projects.

Die Cut Divas ~ Bugaboo Birthday Bird 04

Hello Crafty Friends! Our theme for the challenge at Die Cut Divas for the month of June is BIRTHDAYS. Don't know about you, I can always use more birthday cards. Also, this month, we are sponsored by Bugaboo Digital Stamps. They will be giving our winner a $12 gift code to shop in their online store.


My birthday card features Bugaboo Digital Stamps' Birthday Bird 04. Doesn't this bird just make you smile?


I sized up the digital image and printed it with my inkjet printer. I added color using Copic markers BG05, B13, G05, V06, Y15, Y17, Y38, YG06. I used My Favorite Things Inside and Outside Stitched Rectangle STAX to die cut the panel to size. I added a strip of white polka dot on black patterned paper for a bit of contrast. I didn't really leave room for a sentiment, so I didn't add one.

We'd love to see your birthday creations. Don't forget to add a die cut. After all, we are die-cut divas - LOL!

Addicted to Stamps and More! Challenge #407

WOW! It's hot outside! Nothing better to help me cool down than hide in my craft space and think about Christmas. We have a new challenge for the next two weeks at Addicted to Stamps and More!


Here's my simple, one layer Christmas card


For my card, I used Technique Tuesday's Holly stamp set. I stamped the holly and berries and the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then added color with Copic markers, R29, YG63, YG67. Just an easy, clean and simple Christmas card, this week. 

We'd love to see your Christmas inspired creations.

Try Stampin' On Tuesday ~ Challenge #510

It's time for a new challenge at Try Stampin' On Tuesday. Our challenge is


I chose to make a white on white card.


I chose to use Simon Says STAMP's Sweet Tulip die. I die cut white cardstock twice and adhered the two layers with liquid adhesive. I was looking for a bit of dimension by stacking two layers of cardstock. I adhered the die on the left side of a white A2 card base. For the sentiment, I used Paper Smooches' Chit Chat stamp set and Scrapbook.com's Metallic Frost Pigment ink. Once I decided on what I wanted to make, this card came together very easily.

We'd love to see your creation whether you make a white on white project or use the sketch for inspiration of a combination of the two.
