Live In The Sunshine

Color-of-Fun-638x300-Blog-Hop

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card with a product from The Color of Fun release by Simon Says Stamp. I was lucky enough to receive a product early to make cards with and let me tell you this release is awesome.

I got the One With Nature stamp set and I have already made 4 cards which I will share everyday this week. I was quite skeptical about this set, but if you really look beneath the stamp, you will see endless possibilities.

Here is my card —

Live In the Sunshine

I wanted to make a frame using one of the leaves in the stamp and this was what came from it. I knew I wanted to color and as much as I want to be amazing using Copics, I really have not mastered it. I definitely need practice (the first couple attempts of this card will show you). So I decided  to try something I’ve never used before – color pencils. I have a 12 piece Prismacolor set that I have never used and I decided to try it. To my surprise, I found it very easy and and awesome. I used two kinds of green pencils and the shading was effortless.

After, coloring my frame, I was stuck for a couple hours not knowing where and how to put my sentiment. Then eventually it hit me to make a shaker panel with the frame I just made.  I stamped the sentiment on a separate piece of paper and put it inside the shaker panel. For the sequins, I used Sparkling Clear and Mossy Green from Pretty Pink Posh.

That’s it for this card. Thanks for reading

I’ll be back tomorrow with another card using this stamp set.

Hi everyone. I’m here today with a card for the Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Bloghop.

I have yet to be successful coloring an image with watercolor or do some no line coloring, so I decided to do something I am sure I know how to do – create a background with watercolors.

My second card for the day is also for the CASology Challenge. I am using the same CUE CARD which is MUSIC. This was the first card I made, so I decided to share and enter it as well.

Week 146 - Music

Here is my card —

You Are My Sunshine

I started this card with some Neenah Solar white card stock and I die cut the largest stitched rectangle from My Favorite Things. I stamped the sentiment using Lawn Fawn’s Milo’s ABC and Simon Says Stamp Color and Sunshine using Versafine Onyx Black ink and Hero Arts shadow ink in Butter Bar. For the sun, I die cut a sun from the You & Me set from Sizzix with a paper from the Doodlebug Lemonade Stand 6×6 paper pack.

I adhered the panel on a piece of Simon Says Stamp Sunshine cards stock that is a standard size top folding card. To finish the card, I used some Pretty Pink Posh sequins. I also covered the sun with some clear Wink of Stella pen and covered with with Glossy Accents.

That’s it for this card. For a complete list of the all the products and tools I used, check out the supply list below.

I Only Have Eyes For You

Hi everyone!

Today I’m sharing a card for the Create A Smile March Guest Designer Call.

Guest Designer Call

The guest call will run until February 13 so if you’re interested, go and check it out here.

For this card, I decided to use one of the freebies they have on their website. Here is my card —

IMG_5084

Recently I have been enjoying using digital stamps. I used a Newton’s Nook freebie and I purchased some from Gerda Steiner and now I’m using another freebie from Create A Smile. I will always love clear stamps and I will never stop using them, but digi’s are pretty cool to use once in a while.

I started this card with a panel of Neenah Solar White card stock that measures 5 x 3 3/4 inches. I wanted to color some embossing paste so I used Audrey Blue and Doll Pink from Simon Says Stamp to color some white embossing paste from Wendy Vecchi. I used a chevron stencil from Heidi Swapp and did alternate colors of the paste.

For the focal panel, I cut the image from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling card but I wanted the top to have a straight edge but still keep the stitched detail – so I used the straight border die from the Stitched Borders 2 from Pretty Pink Posh to cut the top part.

I colored the bird with some Copic markers. I will mention the colors in the supply list below. For the sentiment, I was struck with the bird’s big eyes so I wanted to use a puny sentiment related to that. I stamped the sentiment from the Only Have Eyes for you set from Simon Says Stamp with Versafine Onyx black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.

To finish the card, I adhered the stitched panel to the chevron piece and I adhered the chevron panel to a standard size card from Neenah Solar White. I also added  Glossy Accents to the eyes of the bird and his stomach. I used enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye to tie in all the colors together.

That’s it for this card.

A Tweet Thank You

Hi everyone! My crafting mojo is back! Towards the middle of December, I just couldnt find the time or just the creativity in me to make something. But today when I was browsing different card challenges, I saw this one for Newton’s Nook Inky Paws Challenge and I was struck with creativity.

The theme for this challenge is THANK YOU. I personally do not own any stamps from Newton’s Nook because I’ve only recently heard about them. But I have some stamps I have my eye on and I will definitely be purchasing some.

For this challenge, I decided to use some of the freebies on their website. This bird caught my eye —

BirdBalloon__2013NND

So decided to use it and just get creative.

I colored the bird with Copic markers and cut it out. For the balloon, I used the Simon Says Stamp Balloon die on a piece of pink patterned paper from the Chalk Studio Collection from My Mind’s Eye. For the ribbon, I die cut the tiny ribbon from the Thank You For Your Support set from Simon Says Stamp on some Black Licorice card stock. And for thr string, I used some black and white twine from Doodlebug.

For the curved panel, I used another of the papers from the same My Mind’s Eye paper pad and adhered it towards the bottom of the card with the curved part closer to the top.

For the sentiment, I embossed a thank you greeting from the Simon Says Stamp Giving Thanks stamp set with VersaMark and embossed it with white embossing powder on a strip of black licorice card stock. I cut banner end and adhered it with foam tape.

To finish the card, I added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
