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.

Stamp TV Double Challenge



Supplies: Stamps: Gina K: enjoy the sunshine, spring mix, happy harvest.  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Paper: Gina K white  Accessories: taylored expressions pocket die cut and Gina K double stitched rectangle die cut, copic markers, gingham ribbon

I made this card for the Mix it Up Monday challenge on Stamp TV: Double Challenge.  The first part of the challenge was to use a pocket on the front of your card, and the second part of the challenge was to decorate the inside of your project.  I found a small flower image in the happy harvest stamp set.  It is actually a potted plant, but I put the pocket over the pot to make it look like the flowers were coming out of the pocket.
For the inside of the card I stamped the sentiment and die cut it from the double stitched rectangle die.  I also stamped the floral image again.

Thinking of You

Supplies: Stamps: Tim Holtz coffee time  Ink: SU soft suede and Versafine onyx black  Paper: SU very vanilla, soft suede, kraft and white  Accessories: Time Holtz coffee embossing folder, SU wide twill ribbon

I made this card using the sketch challenge on SCS.  I used Tim Holtz's coffee time stamp, die, and embossing folder set.  I was going to stamp the sentiment, die cut it, and adhere it to the ribbon, but I thought that might look strange.  So I thought, stamp on the ribbon!  I wasn't sure how clear it would stamp, but I was pleasantly surprised at the results.

Sunday brings us the featured stamper, and the ending date for the Stamp TV's Flower Poppin' challenge.  The featured stamper is MiamiKel4 on Splitcoast Stampers, and I chose the following card as inspiration for my card.  I chose this card because I liked the layout and that it included patterned paper.  When making CAS cards it is challenging to me to use patterned paper, and I like to get inspiration to use it because I have a bunch!  I kept the same layout of her card and changed the flower and the banner to a ribbon.

Stamp TV flower challenge

Supplies: Stamps: Gina K flowers, Amuse sentiment  Paper: Gina K white  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Accessories: Spellbinders die cuts to make the frame, swiss dots embossing folder, purple ribbon, copic markers

I used to participate in challenges on Stamp TV, and then I took a break from stamping.  Today I got an email from Stamp TV about a weekly challenge and thought I would give it a try.  The challenge is to use your favorite Gina K flower stamp on a card as we are welcoming spring.  I thought of this iris stamp, because I have so many perennials coming up including my dark purple irises.  I used my copic markers to color in the irises.  I made an embossed frame to define the flowers as my focal image.  I added some purple ribbon, (it isn't that dark in real life.)  Lastly I added a sentiment to complete the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies: Stamps: Lawn Fawn Happy and Fab Flowers  Ink: Lawn Fawn: wild rose, celery stick, carrot, fresh lavender, sunflower, doe, freshly cut grass, sugar plum

I made this card for the Free For All challenge on SCS: to create a floral stamped background.  I recently viewed Kristina Werner's card on You Tube and thought it would work for this challenge.  I didn't have all of the inks that she used so I improvised with the ink colors I did have, and pretty much copied her card design.  Thank you Kristina for your inspiration for this card!

I made this card for the SCS Ways to Use it challenge: That's What the Doctor Ordered and the Freshly Made Sketch.  I stamped the band aid to make the three lines of the sketch, and then used the other two images from the stamp set as the focal point.  I colored the focal images with copic markers and then added some glossy accents to the jar of medicine to make it shine like the glass of the jar.  I finished off the card using my Misti to stamp the sentiment to ensure a good stamp of the sentiment.

Birthday Sketch





















Supplies: Stamps: Summer Soltice, Sentiment from Gina K  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Paper: Gina K black and white cardstock  Accessories: swiss dots embossing folder, piercing guide, paper piercer, dimensionals

This card's layout is from the sketch challenge on SCS.  I decided to pierce the card base for one of the layers of the sketch.  I also wanted to keep the card black and white so I decided to go with embossing for the side panel.  I went back and forth about coloring in the butterfly or stamping it in a color, but when all was said and done I went with no color to maintain the black and white look of the card.  Thanks for stopping by!

I had to make another card with the butterfly colored in.  Which do you like better??  Now I am leaning toward the colored in butterfly.

Watercolor Thank You

Supplies: Stamps: Lawn Fawn Our Friendship Grows  Ink: Archival jet black  Paper: grey cardstock and white watercolor paper  Accessories: watercolor, Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die cut

I saw the Freshly Made Sketch and found inspiration in the layout.  I still had my sunflower stamp set out from my last card, and thought it would be great for the focal image of this sketch.  I stepped out of my comfort zone using watercolors instead of copic markers.  I started with a watercolor background, and then watercolored the sunflowers and cut them out.  I then die cut the panel with the stitched rectangle die cut, and adhered it to a grey cardstock base.  Thanks for stopping by!!

Spring Tulips

Supplies: Stamp:  Endless Creations  Paper: Gina K white  Ink: Gina K black  Accessories: Offray ribbon, Timeless Tags die cuts, Darice tulip embossing folder

It is Sunday again, and time for the featured stamper challenge on SCS.  This week's featured stamper is Linda aka bubblestx4.  I found inspiration to make my card from this card in Linda's gallery.  I used embossing and butterflies on my card just like Linda, and added a stamped sentiment and ribbon on mine.  I had a slight heart attack when I went to make this card.  I wanted to use the butterflies from the Timeless Tags die cuts and.......they......were.....missing.  Ahhh!  I had to take everything off of a shelf next to my desk to try to find them.  Then when I was just about done putting everything back onto the shelf I had a paper sleeve from one of the die cut sets.  When I picked it up out slid the butterflies.  Whew!  Sigh of relief!  I will definitely be keeping a closer eye on that little die cut.

Luck of the Irish

Supplies: Paper: DCWV glitzy paper pack, Gina K white  Accessories: Martha Stewart shamrock paper punch, Xyron

I do not have a lot of St. Patrick's Day stamping materials.  So I created a background using the punched out shamrocks, and highlighted one of them using the glitzy green paper.  I like how the white shamrocks give the card texture similar to an embossed effect.  I created a stack of shamrocks and glued them together with the glitzy green shamrock on top to give the focal shamrock some dimension.  Thanks for stopping by!

Die Cut Birthday Card

Supplies: Paper: Gina K white, SU blue and orange, vellum, Lawn Fawn  Accessories: Lawn Fawn stitched circle and border die cuts, SU scallop circle punches, brad, linen thread, Sizzix Happy Birthday Die cut.

I made this for the sketch challenge on SCS.  I don't usually use vellum on  my cards, because it is hard to adhere without seeing the adhesive.  I ran it through my Xyron before die cutting it and it worked out really well!  I like how the vellum circle allows you to see more of the patterned paper.  I found this flower in one of my boxes, I had followed a tutorial and made a few.  The flower was the inspiration for this card.

The CAS challenge on SCS was to use a sentiment only on your card.  I saw this technique from Jennifer McGuire on YouTube.  This is my attempt at it.  It went together quickly, I should have cut it down the middle in a different spot so the hook of the h would have been rounded like the end of the y.  I will remember that when I use this technique again.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

The CAS challenge this week was to find an old love themed card from your gallery and use the same stamp to create a card using your current style.  I tend to embrace the white space when creating my cards.  I added some texture with an embossing folder, allowing me to keep the card white.  I changed the color scheme to more of a red than using pink in order to match the ribbon.  This was a fun challenge, I will have to try this with other cards in my gallery!

I made this card for the sketch challenge on SCS.  I received this Gina K. set in the mail today, and thought I would give it some ink right away.  After I had blended the focal image I felt like it needed something.  I wanted it to look like dandelion seeds flying through the air.  So I spritzed on some water and I thought that gave it the effect I was going for.
