We were treated to a fun Lunch and Learn with Lea Lawson from PinkFresh Studio and got to use these gorgeous layered stencils. I’ve never used them before but they were soooo easy. No issues lining them up and the results were gorgeous each and every time. We also got that lovely HUGS die as well.
You will see that I rotated the sketch to do my card. I used some inks from both Stampin Up and Tim Holtz and the vellum is from Lawn Fawn. I added some gold foil paper from my stash and some lovely gumdrops from Your Next Stamp.
I hope that you will join us in our challenge this week and if you’ve never used a layered stencil before, I highly recommend it!
I don’t normally make Valentine’s Day cards…..it’s more of a Hallmark holiday to me than anything else, but I had these few things on my desk that have been sitting there forever and I was resolved to use them….one was this dotted paper from Stampin Up that I’ve had for years, and the other was the brick wall die cut that was given to me in a swap and lastly was this quote from my favorite musical. I wondered how I could bring the three of them together. I love a good scrapping challenge!
I took the dotted paper and inked it with some distress oxide inks in Spun Sugar, Abandoned Coral and Aged Mahogany. I added some water sprinkles, just for an extra layer of interest. I then put the brick wall die cut over top of that. Then it was just a matter of adding a couple different hearts from my stash (I love that foil one) and some enamel dots. The sentiment is from the Ink Road’s Subway Art Lover’s Movie Quotes. I love this stamp set! I am a big movie buff and it has some of my favorite lines and I really enjoy trying to fit them into different card styles! As I said, this particular quote is from my all time favorite musical The Phantom of the Opera!!!
I’m using the Pure Innocence Fairy Girl stamp set. I used some Lawn Fawn plaid paper for the background. I also did a mixed media panel with some distress oxide inks using the colors and then cut it out with the My Favorite Things cross stich die. A few enamel dots and we are done.
Don’t forget to play along with the color challenge, which can be found here.
Just a fun card today…I am in a swap on a FB group called Canadians Crafting with Paper. Our theme is BEACH.
So, here’s the card I created for my partner. I did a little bit of mixed media for the background using some of the Tim Holtz distress inks. I then cut a circle out with my sizzix die and added some sequins, pearls and glitter to create a shaker. I put a little bit of the turquoise cardstock behind the shakers so it blended a bit better. I colored my image from CC Designs (DUDE – I actually cracked this one open for the first time although I think I’ve had it for at least 2 or 3 years in my stash!) with my copics and stamped the sentiment from Hello Bluebird. A few enamel dots from Michael’s and voila! I’m really pleased with how it turned out and I hope my partner likes it!
