Layer It Up - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

 

Here at the
This week it is time to LAYER IT UP!

Featuring Products by PAPER ROSE.

You do not have to use the featured company to join in.

If you have some of their product in your stash,

we would LOVE to see them used.

Here are the product I used for this challenge.

 

I also used a few items from my stash.

Here is my take on the challenge.


I was drawn to this paper pack by the amazing colors that it contains.

The paper pack also contains some pretty flowers,

 butterflies and bits that you can fussy cut.



I love striped paper and I thought that would be the perfect base

for my card.  I die cut this paper out using the Large Scalloped Rectangle

that come in the Frames and Flags Die Set by Newton’s Nook Designs.

Next, I chose the large wispy wreath, some flowers, and butterflies

 and fussy cut everything out.

I placed all my items on my card base and kept adding

 and taking away until I liked what I saw.

Once I finalized the design, I started to adhere

all my items to the front of my card with foam tape.

Lots of layers on this card!


For a final touch, I used the lilac paper in the paper pack and attached

it to a pre made white card as a background for my card base.

I also added a bit of sparkle using Studio Katia Majestic Confetti Sequins.

I am in love with the way this card came out!

I forgot how much fun fussy cutting could be!

That completes my take on LAYER IT UP!

I almost forgot the good news!

 

The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away

Inky Paws Challenge - Color Challenge

 


Hello Inky Paws Fans!

We are at the halfway point of this current challenge.

Check out these challenge colors!

Using the Ghost Stencil and the challenge colors I came up with this slimline card.


I started my card by picking Distress Ink that best matched the challenge colors.

Using the Ghost Stencil, I just stared inking in the ghosts from light to dark.

 I kept blending in color till I got an even amount of the challenge

color and a slight blend between each color.

It did take me a few tries to get the color mix I was looking for,

 be patient when blending, you will get there.


Next, I turned my attention to the base of the card. 

I used the Large scalloped slimline frame from 

the Slimline Frame and Portholes Die Set.

I wanted the ghosts to stand out, so I decides to use black for most of the card.

Using the Land Boarders Die Set I created a front plate for my sentiment.

My sentiment is part of the Halloween Trio Die Set as well as the bats

that I added on to create some depth on the card.

I hope this card inspire you to use your favorite Newton’s Nook Stamps

along with the sketch and GET CRAFTY!

Make a Card and Envelope - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

This week it is time to MAKE A CARD AND AN ENVELOPE

Featuring Product by our very own SIMON SAYS STAMP

You do not have to use the featured company to join in.

If you have some of their product in your stash,

we would LOVE to see them used.

Here are the products I used for this challenge.

 The Simon Stays Stamp October Card Kit Featured stamp

Happy Fall Y’all

Here is MY card and Envelope


So, went to my “go to” favorite crafty items to create this card.

The Memory Box Rectangle Basic Set Dies

and

Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles.

These dies created the base for my card along with

Simon Says Stamp Banana Yellow Card Stock

and

Simon Says Stamp Dark Chocolate Card Stock

 I added some hidden detail using the leave stamp from

Happy Fall Y’all Stamp on to the Dark Chocolate card stock.


It did not show up well on camera, but it did add some cute in person detail.

Next, I stamped and colored my chosen images from the

Happy Fall Y’all stamp

Dies are not available for this set, so I had to fussy cut.

Please excuse my wonky edges.

I used the Simon Stamp Nested Oval Wafer Dies

For the background of my fussy cut images.

Now to the envelope.


a piece of the Simon Says Stamp Banana Yellow Card Stock.

I stamp my pre-assembled envelope with stamps from the

Happy Fall Y’all Stamp and Ground Expresso Distress Ink.

I also used Versamark Ink to match the shadow leaf on my envelope

And that completes my take on CARD AND ENVELOPE.

I almost forgot the good news!

Inky Paws Challenge - Color Challenge

 

Hello Inky Paws Fans!

We have a NEW challenge coming your way!


These colors are perfect for October and inspired me to come up 

with this CAS (clean and simple) design.


I know for a new card maker some of the cards that are out can be very intimidating.

Cardmaking does not have to be about complicated design.

Using some of the challenge colors, I created a basic A2 background.

I used more of the challenge colors and cut strips of paper in different sizes

and attached those to the background.


The star of the show is the Spooky Roundabout Stamp.

The challenge colors were perfect for coloring in the stamped images.

I finished my card by propped up my die cut circle with foam tape
 and added a sentiment to front of the card.

I know that this card is amazingly simple and basic, if you just staring out in cardmaking this is a card you can do with no problems to help you find your style.

May this card inspire you to use your favorite Newton’s Nook Stamps

along with the sketch and GET CRAFTY!

Make It Sparkle - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

 

Here at the

This week it is time to MAKE IT SPARKLE!

Featuring stamps by STAMPING BELLA 

You do not have to use the featured company to join in.

If you have some of their product in your stash,

we would LOVE to see them used.

Here are the products I used for this challenge.



First was to choose a stamp by STAMPING BELLA.

That was the hardest part of this challenge, they have SO many

unique stamps some with a goth like fun twist.

I settled on STAMPING BELLA Oddball Little Miss Muffett

Kept my colors primary when coloring everything in.


Then it was all about the layers.

I decided on a mini slimline card with many layers.

 I used my Simon Says Stamp Slimline Nested Rectangles to cut

 out a base for the card, using Simon Says Stamp Black Black8 Card Stock.

To add that sparkle to the next layer was cut

 from Simon Says Stamp Silver Glitter Card Stock.

The final layer was cut from Whimsy Stamps Starring Hearts 6x6 Paper.

 I ended up cutting all the pieces that I die cut down to layer under the 6x6 paper.

Not being an in your face kind of sparkle person.

I chose to put a bit of sparkle here and there so that when

you receive a card there are lots of little details to look at.

Going with a favorite sparkle choice of mine Stardust Stickles.



Adding some Stickles to the circles of the paper completed the look I was going for.

 I layered all the pieces together and added some more Stickles

to the polka dots on the dress and spider web.

And that completes my take on MAKE IT SPARKLE.

I almost forgot the good news!


The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $25 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! All you must do is take out your crafty supplies, make something following this week’s prompt, and add a link in the Inlinkz at the bottom of this post!
