Stylized Birthday Card

Supplies:  Stamps: Stylized Birthday  Ink: Memento rose bud, Memento Luxe pear tart  Paper: melon mambo, white, DCWV glitzy paper pad  Accessories: white DMC floss, balloons cut out with Silhouette Cameo, confetti embossing folder

Today is the featured stamper on SCS, and the featured stamper is Kelly.  She has a wonderful gallery to browse through.  This is the card that gave me inspiration to my card.  I inked up my embossing folder with pear tart ink and ran it through the Big Shot.  Then I stamped the focal image.  I cut out the balloons using my Silhouette Cameo, added a tail to each, and adhered them to the card.

Wetlands Sketch Challenge

Supplies: Stamps: Wetlands  Paper: white, pear pizzazz, kraft, and grey  Ink: soft suede and Memento tuxedo black  Accessories: copic markers, Lawn Fawn stitched circle dies

I used the sketch challenge on SCS to make this Father's Day card. When I saw the sketch I thought of the Wetlands stamp set right away.  It is one of my favorites for making masculine cards.  I colored in the focal image with copic markers, and stamped the background in soft suede.

Perfect Perch

Supplies: Stamps: Whipper Snapper Perfect Perch  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Paper: white and red Gina K, DCWV Glitzy paper pad, Lawn Fawn peace love joy 6x6 pad  Accessories: copic markers, ribbon, and liquid applique

The featured stamper on SCS this week is Magouille, and this is the card that provided me with inspiration for my card.  I liked the layout of her card and the snowman image.  I knew I had a couple Whipper Snapper snowmen stamps that I could use for the focal image.  I colored the snowman with copic markers and added some snow with liquid applique and a ribbon to tie it altogether.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Black and White Snowflake

Supplies: Stamps: Gina K (snowflake) stamp set duo, Blessed Is the Season  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Paper: Gina K white and black  Accessories: red ribbon and gem, nestabilities

The Mix It Up Monday challenge this week on Stamp TV is to use black and white.  The only addition of color could be attached with gems or ribbon.  I stamped the scripted background twice, lining it up with my stamp a ma jig, and cut it out with the label nestabilities die cut.  Then I matted it in black.  Next I found the two circles that would fit inside the label, and I looked for a focal image.  The snowflake from Blessed Is the Season was too big, but the snowflake from the stamp set duo was just right.  I accented the black and white with red using a red gem and a red double looped bow.
