STAMPNATION COLOR CHALLENGE


Hi friends!  We have lots of fun over on StampNation with challenges, videos, events, etc.  Erika posted another color challenge over the weekend and I am finally getting a chance to play along.  Busy summer!


On Monday we kicked off this fun event!  I can't wait to see all the favorite crafty essentials and card making techniques shared from A to Z!  It's going to be fun!


Here is another card I created using the same supplies, but different colors.


I am in love with this color combo!  So pretty!

MARBLED BIRTHDAY


Hi everyone!  I have a fun masculine card to share with you all today.  This card could easily be made feminine by switching out the colors to girly colors.

Have you all seen the Marble Swirl stamp set by Catherine Pooler?  It is my absolute favorite of all the marble stamps out on the market right now.  There are 3 separate stamp images that you can nestle together to create your marble background and you can get amazing results by stamping each piece in a different color OR stamp them in multiple colors as I did on my card.


After stamping the background I trimmed it down and added a bit of a black layer to help it stand out and then white heat embossed the sentiment onto the stamped banner that comes in the stamp set.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

CHRISTMAS IN JULY!

Hi friends!  I have seen some Christmas in July cards being posted on FB and Instagram and figured I better get going on mine for this year too!  Have you started yours yet?


I'm playing along with AAA Cards: CAS Game #144 where they want Maxi white space.  My kind of challenge!  I die cut a piece of white card stock using Papertrey Ink's Tipped Top dies and stamped a sentiment from a Papertrey Ink stamp set.  I then stamped & clear embossed and then die cut this adorable bird from the Christmas Cookies stamp set by Catherine Pooler.


I colored it in with my Zig Clean color brush markers and used my Glimmer pen as my paint brush.  Not sure if you can see the sparkle, it was hard to capture on the photo, but it sparkles so much in real life.

I added the tipped top panel to my card base and some black and white twine finishes it off.  While I had my supplies out, I made a couple more using the Christmas Cookies stamp set.


This one uses the emboss resist technique on the tree.  Same layout just a different sentiment and image.


For this one I just stamped the image in the aperture.  Super clean and simple.

PINEAPPLE BIRTHDAY WISHES


Hi everyone!  I have a fun birthday card to share with you all today using the gorgeous pineapple stamp by Catherine Pooler!  I used a fun watercolor with re-inkers technique to color the pineapple.  I love how vibrant the colors are when using the re-inkers.


The background was stamped using the Wild Thing background stamp & a sentiment from Papertrey Ink.

TODAY YOU ARE 19!!



Hi friends!  Sharing this card today for my daughter's birthday!  How can she be 19 already?!  Time sure does fly by.

I CASEd Lisa Harrolle's awesome card HERE!  Instead of Lisa's flip flops, I used candles and changed out the hello word to the Milestone Birthday numbers.


I love that 19 candles fit across the bottom of the card and I could use so many of Catherine's inks in rainbow order.

I will add this over at Seize the Birthday: Anything goes!


Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
