Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes

With Mother's Day coming up I made a card to send to my mom.  Since I will be mailing it I didn't go crazy with layers.  I am also entering this card in this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.  First I die cut the flowers using the Wildflower Corner Die from Memory Box leaving the negative space on the dark pink card stock.  Using the same die I cut it again using silver paper and glued it into the negative space.  I used a piece of light pink card stock on the back to fill in the flower.  The sentiment was die cut using a die from Penny Black called For You.  I cut it three times and layered them for some depth. I love all the Penny Black sentiment dies because they are just so delicate looking.  I added some bling to the smaller flowers and that was it.

Art Impressions Birthday Love Set

Today's card was made with two different challenges in mind.  The first is the challenge over at the Art Impressions Blog called show off your stamp.  The second challenge is with Simon  Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge called Let's do Polka Dots.  So I pulled out the AI set called Birthday Love Set one of their AI People stamp sets.  I colored the image with Copics and paper pieced the image with papers from Recollections called Paddywack.   As you can see all the papers used have polka dots.  Here is my card.


Have a great weekend...

Papertrey Ink Create Along With Us Challenge

Since it's release week at Papertrey Ink the challenge is to make a project using inspiration from the design team.  For my card my inspiration came from Betsy Veldman's card in which she used the new products for this month.  I liked the bold sentiment and how the stamped design grounded the sentiment.  Here is Betsy's card.

I changed my card up a bit.  I used the PTI stamp & die set called Spruce & Sprigs.  I had just ordered this and wanted to ink it up.  The sentiment which is one of my favorites is the PTI Wet Paint stamps & dies.  The bird came from the PTI stamp & dies called Winter Woods.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Here is my card...

 Hope you have  a great week...

Birthday Card Using Art Impressions "Cliff"

I need a birthday card for my brother's birthday, so I pulled out one of my favorite stamps from Art Impressions called Cliff.  For my background I die cut numbers using MFT Die-namics By The Numbers from a piece of Kraft card stock.  I then cut out the same numbers from random sheets of pattern paper from the Echo Park 6x6 pad called Getaway.  I stamped Cliff and colored the image with my Copics, layered it on Kraft & black card stock and added some mini black brads at the top & bottom of my image.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Papertrey Ink Make It Monday - Color Isolation

This week for the Make It Monday Challenge for Papertrey Ink Ashley has a video showing the technique of color isolation.  I liked how she used an outline image for her stamp.  I didn't really have anything like that, so I pulled out the PTI set Hands of Time.  The ink I used for my background stamping was the lightest I had, so I went with that.  I then used the same stamps and stamped it in a bold red with black numbers & hands.  I just cut it out using a circle die.  The Happy Birthday sentiment was die cut using the Penny Black dies called Celebrations.  I cut it out three times and layered them together to get some extra dimension.  

Have a great day...
