Dasher Tag

Pin It
Happy days everyone,

My post today is a tag I made for the Simon Says Wednesday challenge. All supplies are SU except for the flower and ribbon.  I love making tags but don't make them often enough. The tag base is SU real red then I used the big shot with a textured plate. 
 The deer is on whisper white cs and  is called Dasher from SU. I used versa mark to stamp it with and applied silver embossing powder and heat set. Then layered it onto elegant egg plant cs. The snow drift was torn and inked with real red. The sentiment is SU Holiday best stamp set inked in black, I then added a poinsettia flower from my stash. The corner border is a piece of the top that I cut off the tag for added interest. The ribbon is from my stash also. 

I am adding my tag into this challenge

Bird Song

Pin It
Hi everyone,
Todays card is more of a mixed media creation. The card base is neena cs with another layer of neena cs for the front. I sprayed alcohol yellow, pink green and blue home made sprays. I added the Heidi Swapp music background in SU basic grey for a muted look. I added MS pearl paint with my finger to add horizontal stripes periodically to the paper. The bird is from Dena Wakley Scribbly birds stamp colored with copic markers. The branch was cut using impressions obsessions die. The berries were stamped using Prima birds stamp onto canson 90 lb. water color paper and painted with cotman watercolors. The sentiment was also sprayed with alcohol sprays and the stamp is from Dena Wakley scribbly birds stamp. The blue rose was cut with the cricut using the flower shoppe cartridge. I then added some doodle around to frame the image. To add extra interest I then added some black rhinestones.  The inside sentiment has the Happy Birthday song.{lyrics} I will add this card to

Hi everyone, We have had a lot of rain the last few days. its cool today but but no rain. Today's card was inspired by a 6x6 feather stencil I got the other day. The stencil is called mini 4 feathers. The card base is neenah cs cut at 10 x 7. The layer is 6.75 x 4.75 with the edges distressed with  Tim Holts faded jeans distressed ink. The background was stamped with SU gorgeous grunge. The feathers were colored using a sponge and the distressed inks. I added a bow from my stash. The sentiment is from the stamp set called fly free by Kaiser Craft. It needed a bit more interest so I added some gold sequins. I hope you have enjoyed seeing my creation for today. I will add this card into this challenge.

Swallowtail Dream

Pin It
This is my second post for World card making day. The card base a 5 x 7 card using neenah cs. I stamped my card onto neenah cs using the SU swallowtail stamp. The ink is pacific point. I then put the card into a box and used my DIY alcohol blue ink and sprayed it over the whole card and image. I then used perfect pearls mist called pearls and glimmer. It really looks gorgeous. I stamped  a swirl using SU Priceless set and the sentiment is Inkadinkado floral inspiration stamp. I took a strip of neenah cs and used an embossing folder for the right side of the card. I added pacific point over the the raised area to bring the card together. I then added a decorative trim that I had in my stash and added pacific point cs layered onto the card base. I added the front of the card and it looks very pretty in real life.  The sparkle and shine just doesn't show in the photos. I will add this card into

Mind Scapes

Pin It
Happy card making day to everyone. I went to a card class today and made some cards. I didn't take the right glue so I have to finish them at home. This is not one of the cards made in class. It was so much fun. I will go to the class next Oct too. 

The base of his card is 5x7 and I used neenah cs.  I made a sketch template in word for the background layout 4.75 x 6.75 and printed it onto neenah cs. On each of the squares I used lots of post it note to cover up the squares.  Then I could use distress ink linen sponging in each of the squares. Before I removed the post its I took my stamp and stamped before moving on to the next square. The stamp set I used is Inkadinkadoo Mind Scape. The images were inked with memento black and SU old olive. I added a SU old olive ribbon and tied a knot. On the inside of the card I added a second generation stamp of the butterfly. The card took me quite awhile to do but I am pleased with the results. I am hoping the next one will be faster.  I will add my card into this challenge.

House Mouse Holidays

Pin It

I'm back with a house mouse card this time. They are so adorable, I couldn't resist coloring it. I used the spectrum noir color pencils. It is more vibrant in real life and I am disappointed that  my camera hasn't picked up its beautiful colors. The designer paper is SU from a few years back. The image was printed onto neenah cs. I decided to use a die cut to give the card more interest. I then used a red pen and added dots onto the scallop edging. The ribbon is also SU but it had to have a knot other wise it was just too bulky for the card. I cut the button with the buntings and buttons die in the star shape for the top of the tree. I distressed the star with cherry cobbler SU ink. The sentiment is from the Just Rite stamp set Noel Christmas Ornaments. It is a beautiful set. I used the SU modern label punch and the word punch to use with the sentiment. It is just glued on. I took a liner and outlined the reindeer eye. I added the black and the white twinkle so he looked more awake. I couldn't find my red or green twine so I used blue to make the bows for the reindeer neck and the mouse in the basket. I used a half inch corner punch on the designer series paper.  I hope you enjoyed seeing my card, and feel like leaving me a comment.

I will enter this card into these challenges.

Have a Sunny Day!

Hi My lovely followers,

It has been a while since I posted but I was off with a broken wrist and it took a bit longer to heal than it should have. Then I just seemed to have lost my mojo along the way.  I was cleaning and purging in my craft room and it just made me want to get back into the creating mode. I created this card this morning and decided I would post it. The stamp is Sarah Kay and it is such a cute stamp. I just wanted to do a quick card for a birthday girl. I coloured the image with spectrum noir coloured pencils and I really enjoyed sitting down and relaxing with this image.
The card base is neenah cs, The designer paper I am not sure as it was a scrap I used. The blue is SU bashful blue. I used Martha Stuart vine trellis  border punch. The ribbon is also from my stash. The sentiment is from the Pink Stamper set country living. It has some cute saying in it.

Stamp Sets - Sarah Kay, Pink Stamper
Papers - SU, Neenah cs
Ink - memento black, spectrum noir colored pencils
Accessories- ribbon, MS border punch

I will enter this card into this challenge.
