#749 – Enjoy Your Day

Hello! I am so very pleased and honored to be joining the Sovushka Slavia Sketch Challenge as a Guest Designer yet again. This is one of my favorite challenges, which requires CAS cards and the sketches are beautiful. Here’s the sketch for the latest challenge –

And here’s what I made –

Enjoy Your Day

I used the Paper Trey Ink Mighty Bloom die cut twice, on Yellow and white card stock, and adhered these on some newsprint. Laying this at an angle, I foam mounted it on a white card base and trimmed off the excess. The sentiment is die cut from Paper Trey Ink Wet Paint die, stacked and adhered on the die cut. The stamped part of the sentiment is from the co-ordinating stamp set, Paper Trey Ink Wet Paint, which I have white heat embossed, before adhering it to the card.

Check out the wonderful creations from the DT of Sovushka Slavia for more inspiration!

I chose to use Polka Dots — Die Cuts — Happy combination. Here’s what I made –

You Make My Heart Happy

I used Technique Tuesday Lots of Dots to make the polka dotted background, and We R Memory Keepers Weave embossing folder over the teal cardstock to get some texture. The flowers are from WPlus9 Watercolored Anemones, which I stamped using distress inks, misted with water. The die cut sentiment is from Winnie & Walter In a Word: Happy, and the stamped portion is from Honey Bee Stamps Sentiment Builder. After assembling the card, I added some clear white gems to embellish the card.

#735 – Embossing and Zig Brush Pens Coloring

Winner at TGIF Challenge!

TGIF – Favorite

Hello! I just decided to make this card since it has been a while I combined embossing with coloring, and since I used my Zig brush pens.

Hello

The flowers are from Simon Says Stamp Sketch Ranunculus, which I white heat embossed on a watercolor base. I didn’t use much water here on this card. I mostly used the lighter colors to blend in my darker ones; but I had to use water on the Ranunculus themselves – after applying color, I used a brush to quickly move/blend the colors all around, then immediately removed the excess water using a tissue.

Hello

Its basically a one layered card, except the sentiment. The stamped portion comes from the same stamp set, and the die cuts come from Lawn Fawn Cole’s ABCs dies.

#720 – Guest Designing at Tic Tac Toe challenge

Hello! Today I have the pleasure of Guest Designing at the Tic Tac Toe challenge! I am so happy and so excited!!

Here’s the tic tac toe board for the challenge #33

Challenge Board

Though not in a single line, I wanted to include a kraft card base and use red in my card. The only solution? Use two lines! So, I’ve used both Sentiment-Die cut- Kraft and Red-Die cut-Vellum in my card. And here it is –

Celebrate - Its Your Day

I used My Favorite Things Flashy Florals and Distress Oxide Inks to stamp the images on a Kraft card panel. I die cut the panel using a die from My Favorite Things Blueprints 27 and foam mounted it on a black card base.

Celebrate - Its Your Day

The die cut sentiment is from Neat and Tangled, called Celebrate, and the stamped portion comes from Waffle Flower Congrats stamp set. I heat embossed the die cut sentiment in gold some 2-3 times, to get a bit of dimension before adhering it to its vellum counterpart.

#719 – Glitter Sparkle Love

PE: Winner at Tic Tac Toe challenge! Can’t believe it!! πŸ˜€

Tic Tac Toe - Winner

Hello! Its been quite some time since I used glitter in my card making. I tried to combine a stencil, which I have totally not used until now, with clear glitter in this card.

Love You Always

I recently saw a few cards from Yana Smakula, where she had used a stencil in different ways. One of the ways used masking and using the stencil on different areas of the card. This is the inspiration for my card. I used the Penny Black Luster stencil with Black Soot and a combination of Antique Linen and Pumice Stone, partially coloring through the stencil around the card panel. Once done, I covered the panel with double sided tape , sprinkled a bit of black glitter over it and then poured clear glitter all over it. I then die cut the panel with a die from MFT Bluprints 27 and foam mounted it on a white card base.

Love You Always

For the sentiment, I first applied Art Alchemy Wax Brushed Iron and Lucky Emerald on a scrap piece of cardstock. I then heat embossed the sentiment, from Paper Trey Ink Wet Paint stamp set, in silver. I then fussy cut the panel and foam mounted it on the card.

#717 – Guest Designing for Sovushka Slavia CASEing Challenge

Hello! I am super excited to be joining the Sovushka Slavia CASEing Challenge as a Guest Designer! Its one of the challenges that I am always eager to play, and it is wonderful to be able to join them this time!

For this CASEing challenge, we are CASEing Laurie Willison. Here’s her simple and beautiful card –

Love the kraft base, the clean embossing and the minimal coloring! My CASEd version carries a neutral card base, embossing and the minimal coloring (?) using three colors –

Hello

I used Simon Says Stamp Emma stamp, stamped it on gray cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black ink and then clear heat embossed it. I then watercolored portions of the image using red, pink and blue perfect pearls. They are just perfect for watercoloring and getting that beautiful satin shine! Love it!!

Hello

Once that dried, I trimmed the panel, then mounted it on a white card base. I then added a circle of vellum die cut using Mama Elephant Dew Fancy dies. I finally added the sentiment, stacked, die cut using the Memory Box Hello Script die.

Hello

Since the shine of the embossing and the perfect pearls was plenty, I refrained from adding any more embellishments.

I am also joining the following challenges with my card –

Timeout Challenge winner!! Woo hoo!!!

Time Out Challenge - Winner

Altenew Inspiration challenge winner!!
Hello and welcome! I wanted to make a Thank You card, and so made this one inspired by the Altenew Inspiration color challenge.

Thank You

The flowers are from Altenew Painted thanks. I used distress inks, misted with water to stamp the flowers. I then die cut it using Paper Trey Ink Center Style: Feminine die, then stacked the die cut to adhere theΒ  trimmed panel and die cut back on the card base.

I then stamped the sentiment using Honey Bee Stamps Brush Grunge alpha and also a part of the frame using Paper Trey Ink Center Style: Feminine stamp. I then added a few dots using a gel pen. I wanted to do a splatter effect, but I was afraid that the splatters would fall where I didn’t want them, so I added the dots myself.

Thank You
