Art Impressions Challenge - Let's Distress

We are back from Florida and I have my stuff somewhat organized, so I am ready to start creating cards again.  For today's card I pulled out the Hot Java Mama clear set from Art Impressions.   The thing I like about the AI clear stamps is that they ink up nicely right out of the package.  I've used other stamps that the ink bubbles up on until the stamps have been used multiple times.  My stamped image today was the first time I used it and I only had to stamp it once and I was ready to color.   The sentiment is also from the same set.  All the papers were from the Basic Grey 6x6 pack Serendipity.  I also paper pieced the robe and added some Liquid Black Enamel Accents.  I am entering this card in the Art Impressions Blog Challenge - Let's Distress, so I used Antique Linen Distress Ink around my stamped image and sentiment for the challenge.  


Have a great day...

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge

Today's card was inspired by the sketch over at the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge.  Here is the sketch for this week's challenge.


For my card I used the MFT stamp & dies called Fall Florals.  The frame was die cut using the MFT Stitch Round Square Frame dies.  The paper was from American Crafts called My Girl and the sentiment was from a  the Tiddly Inks stamp Birthday Wishes.  Here is my card.

Papertrey Ink - Create Along With Us

It's the start of the April release for Papertrey Ink and Nicole has some wonderful new products and examples posted all this week.  So the challenge is to Create Along With The Design Team this week at Papertrey Ink.  For my inspiration I used a card by Dawn McVey that uses the new Mix & Mat Scallops die.  Here is Dawn's card - I love this card!


The card below is my take on Dawn's beautiful card.



First I started off with a white piece of card stock and die cut the holes using the PTI Mix & Mat Flourishes die.  Since I didn't have anything like the Mix & Mat Scallop die that Dawn used I created the look by die cutting an oval in the same card stock and also cutting two die cuts using the Wildflower Corner die from Memory Box.  Then I glued them to the back of the oval.  I added a fishtail strip with the birthday sentiment from the PTI set Just the Ticket.  The flowers are from the PTI stamps and dies Rosie Posie & Rosie Posie two.  I adhered that to a white card base with foam squares.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

The challenge this week for Papertrey Ink is Lexi showing an updated version of stamping outside the box.  For my card the "box" was made using the Circle Border Die from Simon Says Stamp.  The flowers were from the Papertrey Ink stamp & die set Fresh Bouquet and the sentiment was from the PTI stamps & dies called Wet Paint.

Papertrey Ink Make It Monday - Curved Sentiments

Today's card was inspired by the challenge at Nicole's blog for Papertrey Ink.  Ashley has a video showing her tips and tricks for making curved sentiments from straight ones.  For my curved sentiment I used a sentiment from the PTI set Wonderful Words: Birthdays.  I also used the coordinating die for the "birthday" die cut.  The cake was die cut and stamped using the PTI Invitation Basics stamps & dies.  I went with neutral colors, so I could use it for  either a male or female card.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #279 - Curved Sentiments

Art Impressions Challenge - Spring-y Cards

Art Impressions challenge is Spring-y Cards, so I made a card to send out to my niece's two little ones.  I used the Art Impressions clear stamp set Hoopy Easter Set.  The bunnies & sentiments both come from the set.  The paper is from the Pebbles paper pad called Family Ties and the die is from Papertrey Ink called You've Been Framed - Hexagon.  I going to mail this card, otherwise I would have popped up the bunnies with foam squares.


 Have a great day...
