Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge 101

Hello, everyone!  Thanks for stopping by the blog today.  Stamp, Ink, Paper celebrated it was the 100th challenge last week, and some blog candy was given away.

Since you’re here, I want to share with you how you can win a chance at a free stamp set from Concord and 9th over on my YouTube Channel.  All you have to do is click HERE, subscribe to my channel and leave a comment on any of the videos stating you are from this weeks challenge.  I will draw a name at random next Monday.

This weeks challenge was graduation! My card was pretty simple.  I took some Doodlebug Design Paper and used a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die to cut it at four by 5.25.  I also used one to cut the black cardstock at 4.25 by 5.5.  I then used the Tim Holtz accessories to cut out three hats out of MFT silver glitter paper.  Then used a Tim Holtz die to cut the word Congrats out of black card stock.  I then adhered the pattern paper to the black cardstock and popped up everything else on the card with 3M foam tape.

I hope you enjoy this weeks card! I am looking forward to giving away my first stamp set over on my YouTube Channel!

Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #100

Praise his light we got to choose our design this week for the challenge.  I always like these. I can get a bit more creative.  This technique always comes in handy when you have a card that just isn’t finished, but gives you time to think about it.

This weeks card is made of all Stampin Up products.  I rarely get to make a card with all Stampin Up products because I don’t have a lot of it.  I like to use different product companies on each card, but I challenged myself this week.

This week challenge creation:

The card base is Very Vanilla card stock.  The designer paper is from Moroccan Nights.  The sentiment is from the dragonfly stamp set.  The tassel is from the recently released Eastern Palace Suite. Behind sentiment, you will find ribbon from the Occasions catalog that I ran out of. I had to search Ebay for some of it because I did love it to pieces! The coffee cup is from Starbucks 🙂

I hope you enjoy this weeks card and can’t wait to see your creations.  If you would like, I would love to have you subscribe over at my YouTube channel.  You can do that by clicking HERE.

Have a great week!

Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge 99 – Packaging

Hello, everyone! I have to say these challenges that are not card related are super challenging for me.  This week’s challenge was “packaging.”

I have not made anything outside of envelopes, so I just stuck to a simple envelope.  Some of my co-creators, wow, I can’t compete with that!

Here is envelope:

 

I took some Tim Holtz Oxide Stained Walnut and sponged it around the corners of the envelope. I think took a floral image from Gina K and stamped it in Worn Lipstick Oxide ink.  After that dried a bit, I offset the sentiment from the image and stamped it in Stained Walnut as well.

This technique is a very simple way of decorating an envelope for a card.

I hope you enjoy this weeks challenge and I look forward to all your creations!

Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge 97

Hello everyone,

It is great to be back after two weeks of being on vacation.  It was nice down in Mexico and gave me time to relax and enjoy the smaller things in life! Puerto Vallarta is a fantastic place & I would highly recommend going to visit one day. I also started up my own YouTube channel where I will post card tutorials.  Please head over to Bromero Cards and subscribe to my channel!

On to this weeks challenge.  It is children’s birthday.  I have all nephews in my life, so I don’t get to make girly cards for birthdays.  Below is my card:

This card was made from a Mama Elephant stamp set.  It was too cute not to use.  The children, their toys and the balloon I used colored pencils on to color.  The balloon is covered in Glossy Accents which can not be seen in the photo.  I used the Wonky MFT frame die for the cloud card stock.  I used the hillside dies, and grass dies are from Lawn Fawn. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink and used white embossing powder and set it with the heating gun.

I hope you enjoy this card and look forward to your creations this week!
