Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #133 Sketch

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a great week. It was nice to see all your creations from the last challenge and congratulations to the winner!

This weeks challenge is a sketch challenge. I love these because it forces me to use my stamps in a different way than I usually do!

Here is the sketch:

And here is my card.  I used an old Stampin’ Up stamp set to make this card. I did some Copic coloring on the pants, the hats, body, and the saws.  The shirts and sentiment were stamped with Stampin Up inks. The background image is an old Concord and 9th background wood stamp which I inked up with some gold Delicata ink.  The strip is a wooden paper from Lawn Fawn but then I took some Momento Brown ink and stamped the wood circles on it as well.


I hope you enjoy this weeks challenge and I look forward to all your creations this week! Have a great one!


SIP #132 Challenge Cake Walk

Hi everyone! I hope you had a great week!  This weeks challenge is all about cake! Who doesn’t love cake? Tell me what your favorite type of cake is in the comments!

Here is my card for the week.

I used a Gina Marie die for the cake, the background of the cake is a mix of alcohol inks that I played around with for the first time.  The purple paper is from MFT. I don’t to know the color! And of course, I used the Wonky Rectangle from MFT to cute the base out with!

I hope you have a great week and I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Emboss It! (Folder, Paste or Heat) SIP Challenge 131

Hello everyone and welcome back! Happy 2018 to you and I hope you had a great holiday! Are you ready to get yourself out of the Christmas card making blues and get yourself into hummmm Valentine’s Day?

Anyway, this weeks challenge is Emboss It! I made two cards for this challenge because I am an overachiever apparently.

Both of these cards are pretty simple.  The mandala stamps are on the actual Neenah Solar White card base.  The feathers are stamped on Neenah Solar White using some Stampin Up colors.  Then I used some Wow Wunderlust heat embossing powder over the feathers for the “sparkle and shine” effect that you can’t see in pictures! The feathers are tied together with gold thread and adhered to the card with some foam tape.

I am excited to see what you all come up with and again Happy New Year!
