Here's my card



I started by stamping the sprig from Penny Black's Flower Sparks onto a white A2 card panel with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I added some pearls with Nuvo Crystal Drops Gloss in Caribbean Ocean ( I love this colour!). I looked for a simple script sentiment and found it with Poppy Stamps' Peony Stams and Blossoms stamp set. I rounded the corners of the white A2 card panel with my Corner Chomper and adhered it to an A2 teal card panel before adhering it to a white A2 card base.

AAA Cards - CAS Game #168

I loved the challenge at AAA Cards. It made me think and work outside my usual comfort zone. The challenge is


Here's my card


I started by stamping the outlines of flowers and leaves using Simon Says STAMP Wild Beauty stamp set and Memento Tuxedo black ink. I created masks by stamping on post it notes and fussy cutting the images. For the flowers, I stamped the solid parts with Hero Arts Summer Sky, Pale Tomato and Butter Bar inks. For the leaves, I used Copic markers YG63 and YG67. For the sentiment, I stamped using Hero Arts Thanks A Bunch stamp set onto a scrap of yellow cardstock, which I popped up with dimensionals.

Rainbow Card Challenge ~ July Challenge

Phew! What a whirlwind. I found out early yesterday, while I was at work, that I was selected to become a member of the design team at Rainbow Card Challenge. Could I have a card ready to go that evening? Yikes - that's pressure! I thought about it all day at work and a light bulb went off. This month's challenge is

Here's my card


I reached for Sugar Pea Designs Bring On the Cake stamp set. I stamped the three parts of the cake with Hero Arts Tangerine ink and fussy cut the parts. I also stamped the streamers twice with the same ink and fussy them. I "rounded" the streamers so that when adhered to a card, it would look like they were hanging from the ceiling. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with the same ink. I popped the parts of the cake up with dimensionals.

I'm excited to be a member of the Rainbow Card Challenge team!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #375

Oops - I'm a day late with my card! Anyone else having difficulty remembering what day it is? This pandemic is really messing with my sense of time and date. There is a new sketch for the challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Image may contain: text that says 'Sketch 375 Sentiment Createdby by Michelle Stewart for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge'


Here's my card


For my card, I started with the stenciled panel. I used Stampers Anonymous Mosaic Layering stencil with scattered straw, pumice stone and hickory smoke distress inks, applied with an ink blending tool. I trimmed the panel to 2" x 4.5" and matted with dark gray cardstock. I used some scraps of pastel cardstock for the banner and circle. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches Salutations stamp set. I found some antique-looking paper for the background. I added a paper flower with a small flower brad to complete the card.

Rainbow Card Challenge #18

Who doesn't love a rainbow? The current challenge at Rainbow Card Challenge



Here's my card



I started with a white A2 card panel and added distress inks (cracked pistachio, tumbled glass, shaded lilac, spun sugar, dried marigold) applied with an oval make-up brush. I then stamped the sentiment using STAMPlorations' Typografia Motivate Leave a Little Sparkle stamp set and my MISTI. I, of course, added a few sparkly rhinestones because it needed "a little sparkle"!

Time Out Challenge #164

There is a great photo challenge at Time Out Challenges


Isn't this a great photo - so much to be inspired by. Here's my card


I started by stamping the cute pinata using Lawn Fawn's Year Seven stamp set on an A2 white card base with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I added color with Copic markers B29, BG05, G05, R29, RV23, Y15. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Hero Arts' inks Aquatic, Bubble Gum, Butter Bar, Indigo, Moss, Strawberry. For the word, SMASH!, I masked off each letter and stamped with a different color. 

For the streamers, I used Sugar Pea Designs' Bring on the Cake stamp set. I stamped with Hero Arts Bubble Gum and Butter Bar. I fussy cut them and adhered them to the top of the card.

Sunday Stamps SSC 233

When I saw the color challenge at Sunday Stamps


I initially thought about the US flag. But then, I was thinking maybe something nautical. All of a sudden, the light bulb went off. Here's my card


I used Avery Elle's Beside the Sea stamp set and matching dies. I stamped the buildings (what are they anyway - changerooms? washrooms?) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I added color with Copic markers B02, B24, R05, W2 and die cut it with the matching die. For the background, I used Simon Says STAMP Clouds for Days stencil, light blue cardstock and salty ocean distress ink applied with an ink blending tool. For this 4.25" x 4.25" card, I die cut a circle using Sizzix circle dies. I adhered the sky background panel, so that it was visible through the circle. For the sentiment, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on a scrap of taupe cardstock.
