The Cue Word this week is vehicle. Here is my card —

I am not really into clean and simple cards – honestly I don’t know my style yet but I like trying different ones and just being quite diverse. I definitely know that I am a modern card maker. I don’t fancy the vintage look that much.

With this card, the started with smooth white card stock from Simon Says Stamp. I masked the sky and grassy hills and colored it in with distress inks. I used Broken China for the sky and Mowed Lawn for the grassy hill. For the vehicle image, I used the Hero Arts Father’s Day set (I think it’s discontinued). There was a truck image with a heart and I loved it. I stamped additional hearts from Lawn Fawn’s Milo’s ABC to have some hearts falling of the truck. I colored the images with a combination of Copic and Spectrum Noir  markers. For the sentiment, I used a stamp from Simon Says Stamp in Versafine onyx black ink. I cut the entire panel from the My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle Stax and adhered that panel on to another white card base.

That’s it for this card. I will update this post later with the supply list.

Thanks for reading.

I’m Back!!!!! and a new card

Hi everyone! It’s been almost two and a half months since my last post and since I made a card. My life these past two months were far from uneventful. My uncle came into town and stayed for a month and I spent most of my time with him. After he left, I just couldn’t get back into the swing of things. I felt pressured to make a card and every time I sat down to make one, my creative juices were completely dried up. I gave up and did something else and that happened pretty much everyday for the next month or so. I tried so hard but nothing worked. So I decided to give it some time and step away. Then today, I was watching a video tutorial on YT and I felt like creating. So here we are….

I started with the different challenge blogs I frequently join and listed the ones I wanted to join. This brings us to today’s post…

Here is my card –

I started this card with some Hero Arts Snow layering paper cut to a card base measuring 5 x 3 3/4 inches. I masked off a 1 inch column vertically towards the left of the card stock. I stamped the different flowers from the Truly Appreciated set from Hero Arts. I decided to use Versafine Onyx Black ink so I could clear emboss the flowers. For the shading, the wanted to have an ombre effect, I used the following inks – Hero Arts Soft Pool, Hero Arts Tide Pool, and Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue. For the sentiment, I used one of the greetings from the Little Hoot set from Hero Arts again stamping it in Versafine Onyx black and clear embossing powder.

To finish the card, I added some enamel dots from My Minds Eye and black gemstones from Hero Arts.

That’s it for this card.

Here is my card —

You Fill My Day With Rainbows

I started this card with a standard size with the fold on top cut from some Neenah Solar White card stock. I stamped the rays from The SSS Color and Sunshine set with colors that match the rainbow. The full color list will be provided on the supply list below. After stamping each color, I cut a ray from each one and added some Colored Elmer’s Glitter Glue. This glue dries flat so to add more dimension, I added some Glossy Accents to give it a clear raised image. I attached each ray with the Xyron Sticker Maker.

For the sentiment, I used the same stamp set and paired 2 sentiments together. I stamped it in ColorBox black pigment ink and then heat embossed with the American Crafts Zing clear embossing powder.

To finish the card, I added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and black enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye.

So Thankful

Today’s card is an entry for the CAS-ual Fridays Card Challenge. This week, in line with celebrating the release of their first 5 sets of clear stamps, they are giving away all 5 sets to the winner (wow thanks Michelle – I hope I win) 🙂

The theme for this week – 

So here’s my card –

My goal was to use any scrap paper I had and to still be able to come up with a decent card. I had some pumpkin patterned paper which I adhered on to a dark cream card stock. I had some scrap double sided textured paper from The Paper Studio which I cut longer so it would go over the edge. I stamped the “So Thankful” sentiment from Hampton Arts and Studio G (I got it at Walmart for 99 cents – great bargain in my opinion) using Memento ink in Potter’s Clay. I stamped out the Pumpkin image from Imaginisce Monster Mash collection and colored it in with Copics. My first time to try Copic coloring – I think I failed but with practice I know I’ll get better. To finish the card, the added a faux stitching line with a Sakura white gel pen.

Wednesday Card Day – I Love You

Today’s card is an entry for the CAS-ual Fridays Clean and Simple Challenge. The challenge for this week is

There will be an amazing prize from

So being that this week’s card needed to have a heart on it, here is my card for the challenge –

On a dark cream card stock base, I used a heart patterned paper from Hot of the Press Light Backgrounds. To that, I cut out three 1 1/4 x 1 1/4 squares from papers found in the Basic Grey 6×6 Out of Print pad. I used the “I Love You” stamp from the Operation Write Home – Year Round Sentiments from Hero Arts. I didn’t want to cut my stamp, so I carefully stamped each word and cleaned any ink i didn’t need, so I was able to stamp each word on a different piece. I just got some plain red card stock and punched out a heart and replaced the “o” on love. I used some stickles to make the heart stand out. I used the heart stamp from Lawn Fawn’s Winter Owl stamp set as a top and bottom border. To finish the card, I rounded the corners and drew white dash lines with a Sakura white gel pen for a faux stitching effect.
