You Make me Smile

This week’s challenge is to make a one-layer card. I often create my card on a piece of paper the same size as the card base and place them together using my MISTI. Here is the link: http://modsquadchallenge.com/layer-me-not/

MSC You Make me Smile

The stamp set used is a mini-set from Gina K Designs, You Make me Smile. I colored the image using Spectrum Noir Tri-color blends: Coral Blend, Citrus Blend, Citrus Green Blend. I used a BG10, Cool Shadow Copic marker to trace around the flower. I added border lines to ground the flower, using a Tombow marker and a t-square ruler. I added sequins. You will also find this card on Split Coast Stampers in the Dare to Get Dirty challenge.

Virtual Stamp Night another three cards

JUL19VSNL Rock-a-bye Baby

The above card is a small 3 X 3 inch card. I think it would work well for placing with a gift.

JUL19VSNE So Sharp

This card has a piece of patterned paper for the background that has gold foil dots in it. I think the cactus works well with this paper. The cactus stamps are from a Lawn Fawn set called Stuck on You.

JUL19VSNB Uluru Rock

This challenge was a color challenge: Cajun Craze, Garden Green, Gorgeous Grape. I used a Sizzix embossing folder that was new, a stamp set from SU that was new, and a sentiment from Gina K Designs that I have used many times before. I enjoy color challenges.

There are three more cards I will post soon that were completed for the Virtual Stamp Night. Thanks for looking.

MSC Case Judy — Birthday Card

This week’s Mod Squad Challenge is to CASE Judy Woodland’s card. Here is the link: http://modsquadchallenge.com/just-in-case/

I used the Elegant Asters stamp set and dies, filler from Something Good, and the sentiment from Stippled Blossoms, all by Gina K Designs. I stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, on Gina K layering white paper, colored with Spectrum Noir and Copic markers. I layered with black paper from Hobby Lobby and my card base is Primrose Petals cardstock from SU, retired.

MSC CASE Birthday Card

Fun challenge. Thanks Judy.

Fun with Featured Stamper

I found inspiration from the Featured Stamper from Split Coast Designs today. I chose this card as my inspiration: https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2920588?&cat=500&ppuser=95464

Thinking of You

I used the Sentimental Bouquet set and dies, from Gina K Designs, to create the flowers and sentiment for this card. I blended a couple of light brown tones on the brick stencil using a make up blending brush; thanks Bonnie. I blended SU Soft Sky ink for the sky using the same blending brush. I popped up a few flowers and leaves on the brick wall. I added a bit of bling to the center of the flowers and called it done.

You Inspire Me

I love color challenges and played along with one from Split Coast Stampers.

You Inspire Me

I used the stamp set Flutter By from Lawn Fawn. The ink colors are Mango Melody, Poppy Parade, and Call Me Clover, all SU colors. I used these colors with a blender pen. This is the first time I used this stamp set. It is a nice set with a lot of possibilities, so you will see it again hopefully soon.

I will be posting this on Simon Says Stamp blog with the Anything Goes challenge: https://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/wednesdaychallenge/simon-says-anything-goes-62/

Progressive Card Making Day 1 Advanced

Day 1 Watercolor

This lesson was about watercoloring the image. I chose a Unity set called God is Love. I masked the flower image each time I stamped another flower. Ink colors used: SU Flirty Flamingo, Grapefruit Grove, Berry Burst, Tombow 451-Sky Blue, 055-Process Yellow. The final detail I was to add sparkle to the flowers using a Crafter’s Companion clear Sparkle pen.

Birthday Wishes Wreath

Flower Power Challenge

This is my second card to post to March ginakdesigns challenge. I used the Wreath Builder for placement of the large flowers, the flourish, and the leaves.

Stamp sets: Frame and Flowers 1 (large flower), Sending Love (flourish bud), Stippled Flowers (leaves), Birthday Blessings (sentiment, cut apart to stack). The Darice Vine embossing folder was used to add texture to the card base. The card base is SU Sky Blue and is a 5 inch square. I rounded one corner to give a bit of interest. This card is very sparkly as I used a sparkle pen to add a bit of shimmer. Here is the link for the challenge: https://www.ginakdesigns.com/2019/03/01/flower-power-our-march-month-mix-challenge/
