Happy Little Stampers ~ Stencil Challenge

It's time for a new challenge at Happy Little Stampers ~ Stencil Challenge. Our challenge is always


Here's my card


For my card, I started with a white A2 card panel and STAMPlorations ARTplorations Art Flowers 1 stencil. I added color with ink daubers and seedless preserves and peeled paint distress inks. To help keep the colors from mixing, I used some scraps of printer paper to contain the colors. When I finished the panel, I didn't really want to cover it up with a sentiment or sentiment strip. So, I heat embossed using silver embossing powder and a sentiment from Paper Smooches' Salutations stamp set onto a strip of vellum. Here's a close up.


I trimmed the white A2 card panel down a bit and matted with purple cardstock. 

We'd love to see your work with stencils.

Happy Little Stampers ~ Christmas Challenge

WOW! It's already March? It's so nice that the days are getting longer and some early Spring bulbs are making their appearance. It's time for a new challenge at Happy Little Stampers ~ Christmas Challenge


For my card, I didn't add the Optional Twist of Angels. Here's my card


Yes, I know. I used this same stamp set last month here. I just love this little collection of trees. For this month, I used the Paper Smooches Warm Hearts stamp set and stamped the trees onto a light teal A2 card panel. I also stamped the trees onto scraps of green patterned paper. I fussy cut the patterned paper trees and adhered them in place onto the light teal panel. The sentiment is from Hero Arts Winter Sentiments stamp set, stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink. For a bit of shine, I also stamped the heart onto red cardstock, fussy cut it and applied glossy accents to it. When the glossy accents were dry, I adhered it in place.

We'd love for you to join us this month.

Addicted to Stamps and More! Challenge #400

Hi Friends! It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!


For my card, I chose to only use a stencil. So, that option is open to you too - die cuts &/or stencils.

For this card, I started with a white A2 panel and STAMPlorations ARTplorations Bamboo slimline stencil. I added color with ink daubers and distress inks (crushed olive and forest moss). I trimmed the panel slightly to add an A2 olive panel. For the sentiment, I used a scrap of the same olive color and stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Let's Roll stamp set. In case you don't know, "arigato" means thank you in Japanese. 

We'd love to have you join us for our die cuts &/or stencil challenge.

Try Stampin' On Tuesday ~ Challenge #496

Hi Friends

It's time for a new challenge at Try Stampin' On Tuesday. Here's our sketch

Optional: Bold & Bright

Here's my card


For my card, I found some pretty patterned papers that coordinated, from my stash for the background. For the circle element, I die cut a red heart using a Memory Box Cherub Hearts die, the white circle using a Sizzix circle die and the scalloped circle using a Spellbinders Scalloped circle die. I added Wink of Stella to the heart to add a bit of sparkle. The sentiment is from WPlus9's Fresh Cut Florals stamp set and stamped onto a strip of light blue. 

We'd love to see how you're inspired by this week's sketch.

Rainbow Card Challenge ~ March Challenge

It's time for a new challenge at Rainbow Card Challenge. This month, our color is "jade".


Here's my card


For my card, I started with an A2 sized panel of 96 lb bristol. I inked up a square acrylic block with mowed lawn distress ink. I spritzed with water and "stamped" the acrylic block onto the 96 lb bristol. I had to repeat the process a few times, to get good ink coverage. When the ink dried, I stamped the floral image from Penny Black's Floral Fusion stamp set with Hero Arts Moss ink. For the sentiment, I used Clearly Besotted's Flowers & Flourishes and the same Hero Arts Moss ink. 

When I look at the inspiration photo and my "interpretation" of jade, perhaps, I was a bit off. Nonetheless, it's a monochromatic green card!

Ahhh ... enjoyed our little break and it's back to our regular scheduled monthly challenge at STAMPlorations CAS. Here's our next challenge


Well, it's obvious, I didn't use the optional color twist for my card. Here's my card.


I'm very anxious for Spring and all the beautiful colors of the Spring flowers. So, I pulled out STAMPlorations ARTplorations Sanna Lippert Designs Flowers 1 stencil and distress inks - ripe persimmon and peeled paint. I added color to the stencil with ink daubers and some scrap paper to keep the color where I wanted it. For the sentiment, I used STAMPlorations Grateful Flutters stamp set and Hero Arts Field Green ink. 

A nice one layer card that brings a bit of Spring color to your day!

Cupcake Inspirations ~ Challenge #513 Week 2

There is one week left for the current challenge at Cupcake Inspirations

For this challenge, we are sponsored by Joy Clair Designs. They will be giving the winner, three digital designs of the winner's choice. 

   


Here's my card


I started with this cute bunny sitting in a flower pot using Joy Clair Designs Bunny Greetings digital set. I sized the image and printed it onto some cardstock using my inkjet printer. I added color with Copic markers - C2, C5, E41, E43, R22. I may have stretched the red color a bit, to pink-red. I fussy cut the image and adhered it to a beige panel, 3.75" x 5". I printed out the sentiment from the same digital set and trimmed it to fit under the flower pot. I found some patterned paper roughly repeating the same beige color to complete the card.

We'd love to have you join us in our color challenge.
