Float on…

My third card using Create a Smile Stamps Gull Gang.

I think the water ripple stamp is supposed to be used as the aerial view of wood but I thought I could use it as part of the seagull floating. Heat embossed with Zing embossing powder in Wave. I then ink blended Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide over the top.

I also embossed the ripples onto vellum and cut out so I could make a focal point of the seagull. Adhered it with glossy accents. The seagull was simply copic coloured. The sentiment is from Wplus9 Whole Lotta Happy and heat embossed in Hero Arts white embossing powder.

Final touches by adding white gel pen ripples, droplet embellishments and glossy accent beak on seagull… And it’s done.

I’ll be entering this into the Create a Smile Facebook page challenge ‘Summer’.

Thanks for stopping by.

Arrr… Pirate seagull

My second card using copic coloured images from Create a Smile Stamps (sentiment is from Neat and Tangled). Their new Ocean Waves cling stamp is awesome.

I heat embossed the waves in Hero Arts white embossing powder and lightly ink blended Distress Oxide Blueprint Sketch over the top. The sky was randomly ink blended in Salty Ocean.

Challenge Card No 2 – MFT Color Challenge

Hi again.  Another quick post with card number 2 for the current My Favorite Things Color Challenge 86.

MFT_ColorChallenge_PaintBook_86

I  used two of the same products as Card No 1 (blog post for that card HERE) by My Favorite Things – ‘In Paris‘ stamp and die set, ‘Link Frame Oval Chains‘ die.   The images are stamped with the Ripe Raspberry, Orange Zest and Gumdrop Green and coloured in corresponding colours with Prismacolor coloured pencils.  The background cardstock is MFT Blue Yonder. I also applied Wink of Stella to parts of the images but doesn’t show well in photo and added a few diamantes.

Good morning.  A quick post with a card for the current My Favorite Things Color Challenge 86.

MFT_ColorChallenge_PaintBook_86

I  used all My Favorite Things products – ‘In Paris‘ stamp and die set, ‘Link Frame Oval Chains‘ die and ‘Mini Cloud‘ stencils.   All the stamp images are coloured with Copics and ink blended with Blue Yonder for the sky and Gumdrop Green for the ground.  I also applied Wink of Stella to parts of the images but doesn’t show well in photo.

I will also be entering the above card into the current Muse Challenge #251 using the inspiration card below by Vicki Dutcher.  I used the general layout, the colours and three images.

Color Throw down – #474

Three challenges in one day…a miracle for me!  See previous post for the card I created HERE.

Entering the Color Throw Down challenge with this card.

Happy Anniversary-1

Used Concord & 9th Bits and Pieces Stamp set.  These stamps are leaves but the shape works perfectly for hearts.  Stamped with Altenew Warm Greys mini cube set and die cut with matching die for the popped up elements.  I wanted to add something to the background so in this same set is a stripe which I stamped in the same warm greys.  Added the black by stamping the three berries stamp from the Concord & 9th Magnolia Wreath set.  I added some Nuvo Jewel Drops in Grey Mist to these.

Happy Anniversary-1-2

The sentiment is the Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy.  Loved how I could add the black into the card without it being overwhelming.  That happy makes me happy!

This is the inspiration photo from the challenge and I’ve used the colours plus the branch effect. Super happy how this turned out.

MFT Color Challenge #84…and Inspired by all the little things

A quick-ish birthday card today.  Love this quirkly set by Stampin Up.

Hey Chick-1

Stamped with Versafine ink on Watercolour paper.  Coloured with Derwent Inktense pencils.  Added the orange accents with Kaisercraft Glitter Gel pens (didn’t photograph well) and accented the chickens hair (do chickens have hair?) with blue glitter pen.

Hey Chick-1-2

Used American Craft cardstock in denim and the Concord & 9th Many Thanks die set (I think this is going to be a favourite of mine this year) for the speech bubble.

As well as the MFT Color Challenge …

I am entering this card in the Inspired by all the Little Things challenge.  I’m sure thats a chicken in the bottom row of the inspiration photo.  I think the colours also suit this challenge.77
