Hey Bleeps (blog peeps)!

Today’s card is for two challenges. The first challenge is for Global Design Project CASE the designer. Here’s the pretty card they gave for our inspiration.

Here’s my take on it:

44123872_191290045104797_1940055423595839488_n

As you can see, I kinda followed her sketch somewhat. I used the same stamp set but different images and used the same sentiment she used.

Here’s another view of the cluster:

The next challenge is over at Sunday StampsHere’s the fun color challenge they gave us to work with:

SSC189

Here’s my card again:

44228369_968578933349859_1014468182938746880_n

I love this stamp set with this color combo. I did use some retired twine looped throughout the background as well as the base of my card uses retired Naturals White Cardstock.

I’m lovin’ this fall weather, how ’bout you? Fall and Spring are definitely my favorite seasons with Christmas being my favorite holiday 😉

Well, thanks so much for stopping by. Have a blessed day ❤

 

Fall Heart Card

Hiya Stampers!

I haven’t got to create any cards lately. I’ve been busy on and off with a big sewing project and it’s not going so well. This card didn’t go so well either, I’ll tell you in a bit. I wasn’t going to share it, but decided to go ahead. Life isn’t perfect and we all have those days, am I right? Has that ever happened to you? 😉

This card is for two challenges. The first challenge is for Global Design Project. Here’s the theme they gave us.

GDP159_Theme_Fall-in-Love

Here’s my take on it:

43823208_1888874184537448_2327211884555534336_n_edited

Can you see the mess up? The ink smeared on the tree when I added the shaker top part.  Oh, well, I certainly wasn’t going to start over since I did that part last. I’ll end up giving it to somebody that won’t care, lol 🙂

The next challenge is over at SplitCoast Stampers. Here’s the sketch they gave us. As you can see, I did an interpretation of the sketch instead of straight forward.

I love this Buffalo Check background stamp. It does take a little bit of practice to get a crisp image though, I will warn you. With a stamp positioning tool it really helps a bunch!

Well, hopefully you still liked my sample card. Thank you so much for stopping by, have a blessed weekend ❤

 

Country Home Challenge

Hiya Stampers,

Today’s card is for the challenge over at Global Design Project. Here’s the fun color combo they gave us to use:

GDP157_Colour_Challenge

Here’s what I came up with:

42787984_480630622449606_1181013335206789120_n

I water colored the image using the colors they asked us to, plus a couple more for the cattails and milk jug. This is one of my favorite stamp sets from the Holiday Catalog!

Here’s a close up:

42842285_300625157192921_2564471543048437760_n

This ribbon is amazing, I love, love, love it! I used a retired doily on my project again….gotta use them up since I have a ton, lol 😉

Here’s another view:

42724823_343429456232826_5407723666613993472_n

This DSP is so beautiful I almost feel bad about cutting it……but I’m such a paper hoarder as it is that I am going to force myself to use it! I love these die cuts, they are so fun to use on your projects. I used the small cut out for my sentiment and made it a banner flag.

Well, thank you so much for stopping by! Have a very blessed day ❤

 

A Two Challenge Card

Hey Bleeps (blog peeps)!

Today’s card is for two challenges. The first is a sketch challenge over at Sunday Stamps. Here’s the sketch they gave us to work with:

SSC188

Here’s my take on it:

42507591_700518316979322_2841742872057741312_n

I used a circle doily (retired from SU!) for the small layer instead of the rounded corner rectangle. I sponged all the pieces to give it a kinda vintage look.

Here’s a close up:

42495051_1957180771246350_1181333542198575104_n

I used some retired red tinsel trim over the border punch.

The other challenge is over at Sweet Stampin’ Challenge Blog. We could use dies or punches on our project. I used both 😉

Here’s another view:

42495065_583408998728694_2503282612861140992_n

This stamp set from SU! is called Merry Cafe’…..I love it, even though it’s retired!

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and have a very blessed day ❤

 

 

Country Challenge Card

Hiya Stampers,

Today’s card is for two challenges. One is over at Global Design Project. Here’s the designer’s pretty card they gave us to CASE:

GDP156

Here’s my take on it:

42341862_1896354270452006_7491890975455838208_n(1)

My card is pretty much the sketch she used. I used a different stamp set though but did add a flower image to kinda go along with hers as well.

Here’s a close up:

42230601_703385380018651_7545173081304596480_n(1)

I fussy cut the image since I embossed the background. I also added some ‘fluff’ to the cotton stems with a snow marker I found at my local craft store.

The next challenge is over at SplitCoast Stampers. Here’s the fun color combo they gave us to use:

colourlovers_com_cc705_7d015684c4c3be2b5aa6d54330e52f009cd1532f

Here’s another view of my card:

42320522_530997117350990_8499683477841510400_n(1)

I actually colored in the image with some retired SU! alcohol markers that work fine still. I do plan on getting the new sets of Stampin’ Blends as well. I can’t wait to try them out!

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed weekend! ❤

 

Pink Christmas Tree

Hey Bleeps (blog peeps)!

Today’s card is for a fun color combo challenge over at Sunday Stamps. These colors really caught my eye, here’s what they gave us to work with:

SSC187

Here’s what I came up with:

42098038_174859680024677_8975696678942146560_n(1)

We have to use at least three colors on our project. I chose Lovely Lipstick, Mint Macaron and Night of Navy. I love pink Christmas trees, don’t you? I have a Christmas tree that’s a light pink dress form…..I actually have three dress form ones, plus a regular Christmas tree too! Yes, I love Christmas 😉

Here’s a close up of this gorgeous Christmas tree image from the new Winter Woods stamp set:

42044807_2082526188629891_1330740353321402368_n(1)

I added some dimensionals behind each cut out on the tree to make them stand out as well as some Wink of Stella for some shimmer to the ends. I stamped the tree image full strength once and then stamped off, then die cut both trees out. I stacked them on top of each other to give some texture and added dimension.

Here’s another view:

41990627_329369761161676_3025115680421707776_n(1)

I used just some ribbon from my stash and it actually matched pretty good I thought. I used the card from page 27 from the Holiday Catalog as inspiration for my card. Just changing the colors and some elements here and there. I love to CASE projects and then changing a few things to make them my own. I sometimes dream of card designs or colors, does anyone else do that?

Well, thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you like my sample card for this challenge. Have a blessed day ❤

 

Greeting Card Kids Challenge

Hiya Stampers!

Today’s card is for two challenges. The first challenge I’m entering is for the theme challenge over at Global Design Project. Here’s the theme they gave us to work with:

GDP155_School-Days

Here’s what I came up with:

41669279_476204366213909_5854530158093926400_n

Since we homeschool now, I don’t have anything really school related at all……but I never got rid of this wonderful retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Greeting Card Kids. It’s one of my faves and some things I will always keep 😉 My pink bling is just from my stash and thought they matched her dress pretty good.

Here’s a close up:

41645195_293901888003568_6437816004272717824_n

These little cuties have always reminded me of my twins when they were little. This stamp set has a vintage feel to it and it’s precious. I simply water colored the image onto water color paper and stamped the greeting onto Whisper White cardstock. I cut the image out with a circle die and added it with dimensionals. I also added dimensionals to pop up the greeting. The buffalo checked Blueberry Bushel piece was from last month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit Picnic Paradise that I had left over. It has a tissue type texture to it and I thought it fit perfectly.

The next challenge is from Sweet Stampin’ Challenge Blog. I came across their website recently and remembered them fondly as I used to do their challenges all the time on my old blog!!!!! Love happy accidents like that, don’t you?

Here’s the sketch they gave us to work with:

September Sketch-001

Here’s one last look at my sample card:

Well, I hope you like my card for these two fun challenges. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a blessed day ❤
