Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #67

Hello! It's time for a card for Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge. Starting November, Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge will be bi-weekly. So from now on, you have two weeks to play! =) Here is the next challenge:


Here is my take on the challenge.


I don't think I have ever made a white on white card, but I had such fun making this one!


I used Relaxing Charlotte for my card. She is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Labels Twenty-Three die.


The background piece is trimmed to 1/4" smaller than the A2 card base, embossed using Cuttlebug's Textile embossing folder then adhere to card with foam tape. The image is then popped over the piece with foam squares. The sentiment piece is cut using PTI's Jar Label die and the sentiment comes with this stamp.

That's all I have. Please go and check out what the other design team members came up with for this challenge and find out all the details for the challenge here. Hope you can join us this time! =)






Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!

Vintage Snowflakes

Hello, all! I am here with another preview for The Craft's Meow's November Release. We are showcasing Vintage Snowflakes and Vintage Ornament illustrated by Nina Brackett. I am sharing a card made using the beautiful Vintage Snowflakes set.


If you know Nina, you know she is an expert at creating elegant images and this set is so very beautiful. I love the intricate patterns on the snowflakes and look at the flourishes on the font she used! YUM! =)


I used the paint resist technique for my card once again. The snowflakes and sentiment are stamped with Ranger's Pearl Acrylic Paint Dabber on a piece of watercolor paper. The piece is then heavily linked with Tumbled Glass distress ink. I used a damp paper towel to wipe off the excess ink on the images after inking.

That's all from me. Please check out what the other design team members came up with using Nina's gorgeous designs here. Don't forget to leave a comment at the preview post at The Craft's Meow Store Blog for a chance to win these two stamp sets. All new stamps will be available on November 1st at The Craft's Meow.

Happy Hoo-liday & The Merry Best

Hello, all! It's preview time again over at The Craft's Meow! Can't believe it's almost November!!?? I am helping out with the preview today. We are showcasing Happy Hoo-lidays and The Merry Best sets. Here is my card made using a super duper cute image from Happy Hoo-liday set.


Isn't this little owl the cutest? I just hope he figures that light out before the Christmas. =)


I stamped the image on my PTI Stamper's Select White card base and colored it with Copic markers. Some Glossy Accents is then applied to the lightbulbs.


The sentiment comes with this set. Trust me, if you like cute holiday images, you will love this adorable set! =)

My second project is a tag made using images from The Merry Best set.


This is a very versatile holiday set. I decided to stamp the trees on patterned paper and made a little scene. I sneaked in a sentiment from a set that won't be featured for another day or two, just to make you drool. Bahahahaha... =)

Don't forget to check out what the other design team members made with these two new stamp sets here.

Little Elf Mim

Hello, my friends! Here is a card that I made using an adorable image from Mo's Digital Pencil.


Yes, another holiday elf! You know I adore them and this one is too cute! I also decided that you don't have to use the dies up right or horizontal to make it fun. =)


The image is called Little Elf Mim and she is printed on Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock, cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Small die then colored with Copic markers. The piece is matted with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Petite Ovals Large die before I stitched the layers together. I then inked the image with Antique Linen and Tea Dye distress inks.  The sentiment piece is made the same way except that it is not stitched. I also added some Sugar Sparkly Fluff to the trims of her outfit.


The patterned paper is from Wonder 6x6 Bundle by Authentique. I used WOJ's Nested Flowers II die to make the flower and all paper edges are inked with Tea Dye distress ink. The sentiment is from Very Vintage Christmas set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.

That's it for now. For more inspirations using images from Mo's Digital Pencil, please visit Mo's Dream Team Blog.

Cherub

Hi! October is Breast Caner Awareness Month and here is a card that I made using a fundraiser stamp from Sugar Nellie.


100% of the proceed of this stamp along with two others found here will be donated to Breast Caner charity(s) in UK. If you are in America, Papertrey Ink just came out with a beautiful set of stamps called Faith & Hope and all proceeds from this set will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Livingstrong the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Neither of the companies paid me for this, just thought that I'd help for the wonderful causes. =)


This image is called Cherub illustrated by Leanne Ellis. She is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut out. The image is pop dotted on the background paper. I then added Star Dust Stickles to her wings for some sparkle.


The patterned paper is from Victoria Gardens 6x6 Paper Pad by Echo Park Paper Co. The sentiment is from Sending Smiles set by Hero Arts. I am also entering this to the CAS-ual Friday Just add color challenge. Hopefully, this is CAS enough. =)

That's all I have. Have a lovely day, my friends! =)

Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #66

Hello! It's time for a card for this week's Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge. Here is this week's challenge:


What? No coloring?! You know this is going to be difficult for me. =) Here is my take on the challenge.


I used Bookworm Ruby for my card. She is stamped on the back of a piece of watercolor paper (because I made boo boo stamping on the right side...) with Aged Mahogany distress ink with a spritz of water. The image is then cut and embossed using a Standard Circles Large die.


The kraft card base is stamped with Formula Fun from BasicGrey/Hero Arts using Papertrey Ink's Fresh Snow ink. The patterned paper is from Oxford collection by BasicGrey and the sentiment comes with this stamp.

That's all I have. Please go and check out what the other design team members came up with for this challenge and find out all the details for the challenge here. Hope you can join us this week! =)

Halloweenies

I used the fabulous Halloweenies set from Paper Smooches for my card. I just adore the Halloween images in this set! The images are stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstok, colored with Copic markers then cut out.


The patterned paper is from Mischievous 6x6 Designer Paper Pad by My Mind's Eye. I used the fun Scallops On the Edge Die on the orange stripe paper for a little interest. The sentiment comes with this stamp set.

From Heaven Above

Happy weekend, my friends! Here is a card that I made using one of the new gnome stamps released this month by Whiff of Joy Stamps.


I love this peaceful image. This stamp is called From Heaven Above.


The image is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Small die. I masked the image and stamped the tiny dots from Essential Blackground - Spots & Dots II set at the bottom for some interest. The piece is then inked with Antique Linen and Tea Dye distress inks while the paper was still in the die.


I took the advantage of the design of the patterned paper and used the printing at the bottom for my sentiment. The patterned paper is from Lost & Found Christmas 6x6 Designer Paper Pad by My Mind's Eye. I traced the sentiment with Copic Clear Spica pen and created a couple of hollies with hand cut patterned paper and buttons.

That's all for today. Please check out the October release at Whiff of Joy Stamps here.

Trick or Treat

Hi, all! Here are a couple of Halloween projects that I made using stamps from Purple Onion Designs.


The first one is a big (4" x 5 5/8") treat bag. I stamped Halloween Noteblock on the bag with the yummy Boysenberry ink from ColorBox. The banners from Build-a-Banner are then paper pieced.

My second project is also treat bags, but much smaller (4" x 2 1/2"). I think these would be perfect to mass produce.


The bags are stamped with Late 1800's Script Background first with Vintage Photo distress ink. The bats, spiders and sentiments from Halloween Set is then stamped with Black Soot distress ink.

My last project is a Halloween card that was inspired by the first treat bag.


The Halloween Noteblock is stamped with ColorBox's Boysenberry ink. I stamped and cut out three little spiders from Halloween Set and pop dotted them over the noteblock.  The edges of the card are then inked with Black Soot distress ink. The spider strings are are made with embroidery floss and a polka dot ribbon finished the card.

That's all I have for now. For more inspirations using stamps from Purple Onion Designs, please Purple Onion Designs Blog!

Enabler alert: Just about everything (except stamps) at The Craft's Meow is on sale for 15% to 50% off! No coupon code is needed. The prices have already been marked down. Please go here to see all the details!

You wouldn't want to miss what my awesome teammates came up with for this blog hop! =) Without further ado, here is my card for today's hop.


Our hostess this month is Jak and the challenge theme that she came up with is "Colors of Autumn." Such a fitting theme for this time of the year! I used the beautiful Ragged Angel for my card. I really enjoyed coloring her. I am always in awe of Mo's imagination and talent. This is such a sweet and heartwarming image.


She is printed on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, cut and embossed using a Classic Squares Large die then colored with Copic markers. The sentiment panel is cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Small die. I added some Star Dust Stickles to the snow for a little shine.

Charlotte

Hello, my friends! Here is a card that I made for Challenge #100 over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge Blog. It's been a little while since I have played with my KK stamps, so I thought that I'd play along with this one. =)


The challenge is to use your favorite Kraftin' Kimmie stamp and I chose to color up Charlotte. Don't you just love her facial expression? I adore all the Moonlight Whispers characters since they all have such distinctive personalities and it's always a delight to color them.


Charlotte is stamped and colored on Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock then cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Small die. The image is matted with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Petite Ovals Large die before I stitched the layers together.


The patterned paper is from Blink of an Eye 6x6 Designer Paper Pad by My Mind's Eye. The sentiment label is a die from Papertrey Ink and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.

That's all for now. Hope you have a fabulous day! =)
