I have another card that I created with fruit for the Mod Squad Challenge. It has been posted from Split Coast Stampers. I am also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp challenge.
The oranges came from You’re the Sweetest and the leaves from Anemone Wishes, both from Gina K Designs. The sentiment came from a Hero Arts set.
I saw this idea on Pinterest and it looked fun to create. I used SU Tangerine Twist ink, marker, and cardstock on this card. The green leaves are Fresh Asparagus ink and cardstock from Gina K Designs. The ribbon is Old Olive. I made the stripes using a ruler and marker. I cut the orange slices with a 1 3/4 inch circle punch, then sliced a few in half. This was fun to create. Thanks for stopping by to take a look.
This card was created for the Mod Squad Challenge using fruit and the Paper Smooches challenge of Anything Goes.
For the fruit I used You’re the Sweetest by Gina K Designs. I remember this set coming from a kit released in 2014. It was a favorite and I still pull it out and enjoy stamping with it. The leaf stamp is from Cute Fruit by Paper Smooches. I needed a leaf and this set has a couple of choices which worked perfectly. The sentiment is from Positive Vibes by MayMay Made It.
New dies arrived in today’s mail and I used them on this card. Gina Marie Designs, Stitched Scalloped Rectangles were a joy to use. I die cut the center, then cut a white piece to stamp the sentiment on and popped it up in the center. I die cut the background with the largest die from the set and didn’t like it on the white card base, so I die cut the entire base to match. I really like the completed scalloped card as it is different that what I normally do and will be a joy to send.
I used Key Lime in both cardstock and ink and Sweet Mango all from Gina K Designs. The yellow is Lawn Fawn Lemonade ink and the solid green leaves are stamped with Stampin Up Granny Apple Green. The card base is Hobby Lobby 110 pound white.
I pulled out the tropical stamps, dies, and embossing folder and created the following card for the Mod Squad Challenge.
I used the following: GKD Tropical Blooms, Made with Love, Wreath Builder Template, a Sizzix Leaves EF, and the Hello from a SU Paper Pumpkin kit. The colors I stamped with are SU Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow. These colors are from this week’s color challenge on Split Coast Stampers. The pearls are SU, but I have no idea what color exactly, but they matched. I spritzed the color after marking on each flower or leaf with perfect pearls water; I had mixed it quite a while ago and it brings a lovely shine to the watercolor.
It has been a while since I have participated in a Mod Squad Challenge. It was fun to try something new as I do not remember coloring on clear stamps, or it has been a long time.
Day 4 of the OCC Spring Card Camp is all about using a coordinating die to create a window, then use the die cut to create another card.
I used the Hero Arts Hummingbird stamp set with the matching dies. I made my mask using the die. I should have trimmed the mask a bit so there wouldn’t have been a small gap between the hummingbird beak and the flower, but I decided to leave well enough alone. All images were colored with SU pencils and a blender pen. Now for the second card using the die that was cut from the window.
I added the score lines to the front for interest, like in the class. Both cards were added to the Mod Squad birds Challenge, from Split Coast Stampers.
I had fun with many colors, making a Spring card. This card fits several challenges.
I used two sets from Gina K Designs on this card: Spring Has Sprung, A Wish For You. I used many colors of Gina K Designs ink to create the rainbow of butterflies. I love Spring cards, so they are always a joy to create.
I have been busy today creating cards for challenges and a featured stamper. All were posted at Split Coast Stampers. I wanted to share them with my buddies on this blog.
This bookmark was created with the current Paper Smooches Animals challenge, as well as the Mod Squad Challenge. I used a Paper Smooches set called Flap Happy, colored with Copic markers. I enhanced the butterflies with a white gel pen. The scallop top was created with a retired SU punch.
Lawn Fawn stamps were used. For both cards I used Simply Celebrate and Wavy Sayings. I made two as I had the supplies out and couldn’t decide which single stamp to use. The candle piece of patterned paper is from My Favorite Things. I used two pieces from the pack for color inspiration.
This last card was created with the inspiration of Ellen Hutson’s blog. There is a post by Gina K Design where she used the wreath builder and Ellen Hutson stamps. I got inspired to use other stamps and make a wreath. I chose a bee from Flap Happy, a Paper Smooches stamp. This was also posted to the current challenge of Animals at their blog.
I had a fun day of creating. We had rain when I woke up, then snow, now it is just cold. Crazy weather for March as it should be windy. I had to be inside and I was inspired. Thanks for reading the long post.
I created this card with the Mod Squad challenge and the My Favorite Things sketch, and added a bit of blue for the Misti challenge. All of these challenges were posted from Split Coast Stampers, but I wanted to share this card here.
This card follows the same general layout and flow as the bird one. I have no one special in mind for this card, but it will be easy to mail when the time to use it comes. Thanks for looking.
