Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge 76

Hi everyone!  I hope everyone that was in the US had a great Thanksgiving and if you aren’t on the US, then I hope you had a great week!

This week we have an embossing challenge.  This is actually my first time embossing with an embossing mat. I remembered when I first started card making I bought one, but never really knew how to use it.  Then it got lost in my craft room.  Then this week as I was doing some clean up, I found it!

Here is this weeks challenge:


And here is my card:


The tree and the snowflake border are form Memory Box.  The tree is actually embossing with texture, but it is hard to make out in the photo.

The background is a blend of four distressed inks: Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot.  I then splashed some water on the background & let it sit for about 20 seconds.  While you can’t see it in this photo, I also spritzed with with Perfect Pearls that was mixed with water.

The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.  I stamped the sentiment with Blueberry ink from My Favorite Things and then clear heat embossed the sentiment.

I assembled the card and placed it on a Neenah Solar White 110lb card base.  The tree is on foam tape.  I made seven of these cards and had to cut little pieces of foam tape for each tree.  I need a taller craft table I believe!

The last touch was adding the clear sequins which is a mix from Pretty Pink Posh.

I hope you have enjoyed this weeks card and I look forward to seeing yours!


Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #75

Hello everyone!  Thanks for stopping by this week to view this weeks card for the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge.  It is the beginning of the holiday season here in the states.  Thursday is our Thanksgiving holiday and the day after that all hell breaks loose at every single store in the United States!  God bless us !

Anyway, here is this weeks challenge.


And here is my card:


This week I kept the card kind of simple.  I took some brusho and made a “pool” color background with it.  Then I took two different Memory Box dies and cut out the ornaments with some mirrored copper paper.  I got this at my local store and I love it. I adhered those to he background paper and then fussy cut them out.

I then took an 80lb piece of Neenah Solar White paper cut at 4 inches by 5.25 inches and used the Darice snowflake embossing folder to emboss it.  I then cut thin strips of the same copper paper and applied it to a card base.

The sentiment is also from Memory Box as well.

I hope you have a great week and thank you for stopping by and playing along with us!


Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #74

Hi everyone!  Thanks for stopping by to view this week’s card challenge over at Stamp, Ink, Paper. 

Here is this weeks challenge:


And here is my entry for this weeks challenge!


I took a piece of 110lb water color card stock and used some blue Brusho colors to make the background piece.  After that I trimmed down that card stock to be a little less than 4.25 by 5.5.  Then I used some silver reflective paper and die cut one of the large snowflake dies from Simon Says Stamp.  I then heat embossed in silver the pattern of dots across the front of the vellum piece.  The vellum piece is cute at 4.25 by 5.5. I mounted the water color stock with 3D foam tape onto a top folding card cut at 11 inches by 4.25 inches folded in half. I then glued the snowflake to the vellum.  Then glued the vellum to the watercolor stock by adding glue behind the snowflake and the dots across the card.

I hope you enjoyed this weeks card and look forward to seeing your creations!

Have a great week!


Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #73

Hi everyone!  Thanks for coming back for this weeks challenge over at Stamp, Ink, Paper!

This weeks challenge was Grateful/Thankful

Here is this weeks challenge post:


I decided to go with Lawn Fawn’s “Thanks a Bushel” stamp set for this card.  I mean how cute is this stamp set, right?


I started with the card base of Neenah Solar White 80lb card stock.  I blended some Distress Ink for the sky.  I then used the Tree Landscape die set to cut the frame along with the tree. Then used some yellow, green, and orange card stock for the leaves.

I colored in the apples using some copic markers.  I used the My Favorite Things slider die to make the apple trail to the basket.  The basket of apples are on 3D foam tape.  I then added 3D foam tape on the back of the card front and adhered it to some Neenah Solar White 110lb card stock that has been folded at 4.25 inches.  Then I used the Lawn Fawn tag die set to cut the brown die, and used the Lawn Fawn rectangle die for the plaid background.  I glued the plaid down to the card base & then put the tag on 3D foam.  I tied some twine to the tag for decoration.

I hope you enjoyed this weeks card!  Thanks for stopping along the way! Have a great week!


Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge 72

Hi everyone! Thanks for hopping over and taking a look at my card!

The Stamp, Ink, Paper team has asked me to stay a little longer as a design team member.  How exciting! Hopefully you enjoy playing along with us.

Here is this weeks challenge:


And here is my version:



I used the MFT Beastie Stamp set using Neena Solar White 80# paper and colored the Yeti in with Copic Markers.  I also used the Wonky Square Die to cut out the piece for the sentiment.  The chevron pattern paper is from Bo Bonny. I adhered the sentiment square on with 3D foam and then added some to the back of the Yeti as well.  The sequins are from my stash.  It is hard to see in this photo, but there is actually some aqua shine bouncing off the purple sequins.

I hope you enjoyed this card and can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Have a great week!
