Feminine - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

 This week we are putting a Feminine touch on our projects

 at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Featuring products by STAMPENDOUS

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 is my take on this challenge.


MY stamp set of choice this week is the Pop Rose Teacup Clear Stamp by Stampendous.

This huge teacup and floral bouquet are so adorable.

I stamped my images out first and selected my favorite go to colors of alcohol markers.

I kept my coloring simple with light shadows.

This stamp set did not have a die set, I fussy cut out my image.

While my ink was drying, I die cut out a background piece from the Chunky A2 Scalloped Rectangle and#120 White Card Stock by Simon Says Stamp.


For a card base I used a lovely yellow gingham piece of Cardstock from

the Spring Fling 6x6 paper pad by Honey Bee Stamps 

and the largest rectangle from the Rectangle Basic Set by Memory Box.

I assembled all my pieces, propping up my bouquet and my teacup with foam tape.

For final touches, I stamped on my sentiment, added on a few white pearls, 

and added on some details with my Moonlight Gelly Roll Pens by Sakura.


Finally, I attached everything to the front of a card 

created with Cream Cardstock by Simon Says Stamp.

 That completes my take on Feminine

Inky Paw's Challenge 147 - Sketch Challenge

 

    Hello Inky Paws Fans!

We are at the halfway point of this current challenge.

Check out this amazing sketch we have for you.


Using the challenge sketch, I came up with this card.

I just love the NEW Gnome Garden Stamp Set.

What a fresh and Fun take on gnomes!

I selected the gnome holding a daisy and paired this gnome with 

the Dainty Daisies Stamp Set.

The Daisy’s make the perfect background element of the sketch.


I keep the card bright and cheerful by using yellow on my daisies.

A bit of Diamond Stickles in the center of my daisies adds a touch of sparkle.

For the across element of the sketch I used the Fence Die.

To finish off my card I created a card base using some Yellow Card Stock 

and the Large Scalloped rectangle from the Frames and Flags Die Set.


For a final touch I add on my colored in gnome to the front of my card with foam tape.

That completes my take on the fun sketch

Anything Goes - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Simon Wednesday Challenge 


This week ANYTHING GOES

 at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Featuring products by PENNY BLACK

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 is my take on this challenge.


This week I decided on a shaped card.

 I am using the Honey Bee Hexagon Solid Stack Dies.

 I die cut out a piece of Cotton Candy Card Stock by Simon Says Stamp.

My card features the Enliven Clear Stamp by Penny Black.

I am doing thing a little different by stamping directly on to Cotton Candy Card Stock.


 Then I outlined some of my buds and the flowers in using my Spectrum Noir Classique Markers.

I also colored in the stems of the flowers gray.

This simple detail gave me the pop of color I was needing.

 Next, I created a card base and a background layer using the same Hexagon Die set.

Finally, I created a banner using the Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banner Dies.


The smallest banner was perfect for the sentiment that came with the stamp set.

 For the finishing touches on this card, I used a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen.

 A quick swipe on the flowers to add some up-close bling.

A little bit of Diamond Stickles between the stems adds a finishing touch.



That completes my take on ANYTHING GOES

Inky Paw's Challenge - Sketch Challenge

 


HAPPY MONDAY!

Who is ready for a NEW Inky Paws Challenge?

Check out this challenge!


Using the above sketch, I came up with this card.


I knew that I wanted to use the Winston Takes Flight Stamp Set.

I knew that I wanted to use the Sky Boarder Die to create white clouds.

That is when I decided I would have a blue sky, just two different shades of blue.

This would create the center element in the sketch.

I die cut out the sizes I wanted for a card front and a smaller size for the insert behind the clouds.


Using the Clouds Stencil, I inked up “clouds” using Chipped Sapphire and Stormy Sky Distress Ink.

When my ink was dry, I layered up my two pieces and admired my cloudy sky.

Next, I added on my white fluffy cloud I created.

Finally, I attached Winston and the banner.


For my airplane colors I went with a more vintage vibe.

I felt that this style of color would stand out against all the blue and white.

That completes my take on the fun sketch

Now it is your turn.

Sending Hugs - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

 



This week at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

We are SENDING HUGS

Featuring products by IMPRESSION OBSESSION

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 is my take on this challenge.


I just love anything with a kitty on it! 
For this super cute stamp, I had to create a background.
I decided on the “miss you” tile from the 
Using the tile stamp I brick stamped a background using Versamark Onyx Black Ink.


Once I was confident that the ink was dry, I die-cut out a card base 
using Rectangle Basic Set by Memory Box.
I selected some bold colors of Spectrum Noir Classique Markers 
and colored in my kitty.
To add some interest in the back I used white gel pen 
and added on some polka dots.

I die cut out my Kitty and a foam backer 

using Basic Square Wafer Dies by Simon Says Stamp.

 To finish out my card, I placed my kitty and foam backer to the front of my card.

I then adhered my card front to a folded card base created

 with Black Black8 Card Stock by Simon Says Stamp


That completes my take on Sending Hugs.

I almost forgot the good news!
