Oldie but a Goodie

I’ve been trying to go back and work on some old classes that I purchased from @sctmagazine . This is from I believe the WCD online class from 2017 or 2018. We were creating a card using a @pagemaps sketch and a card created by Allison Okamitsu. @nicepeoplestamp .

Her example was a Christmas card but I decided to go with a birthday one using the Perfect Pairings stamp set from @stampinup along with their Gorgeous Grunge.

I used @ranger_ink distress inks in peacock feathers, twisted citron and picked raspberry for the watercolored background, as well as some @ginakdesigns black onyx ink. The stencil from Stampin Up was paired with some @heidiswapp metallic white texture paste and @studiokatia wedding bells sequins.

It’s been awhile since I did any mixed media cards and this one was super quick and easy to put together.

Entered into these challenges:

Crafter’s Castle: Anything Goes

A Bit More Time To Craft: Anything Goes

Die Cut Divas: Watercoloring

Creative Craft Cottage: No Patterned Paper

Love to Craft: Anything Goes

Make You Appear

I’m playing along with the My Favorite Things color challenge right now.

Here is the card that I created

20200603_114608

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. 

Crop Projects

Hey there…I wanted to share with you today some of the projects that I had been working on for the last week.  These were for the challenges on the Scrap Shotz Facebook page for our online crop for International Scrapbooking Day which was on the 2nd.  You can find the Scrap Shotz store here if you want to look around

 

The crop was Music themed, so our projects corresponded with songs!

This was a layout for the the challenge You’ve got a Friend In Me…a project about friendship.  Taken a few years ago at a bucket list concert I attended, were these pictures of my friend Amy and I at Rob Thomas (one of my very favorite singers)

This layout was a bit of a stretch for me because it involved mixed media – not my forte.  The song was Leaving on a Jet Plane…it was the last challenge of the day and it was to use some mixed media and the sketch provided that Brande created…a really great one!  i was actually surprised at how well this turned out for me.

This one was  Eye of the Tiger….the challenge was to use a stencil!  I found this old stamp set when I was cleaning up my scrap space and the stencil is actually from Emerald Creek Crafts.

No photo description available.

Circles by Post Malone was this challenge – use circles on your project!  I broke out my Taylored Expressions die for this one, which was perfect!  I also did a bit of circle stenciling in this one.

For ‘the Final Countdown” we had needed to complete an old project…I chose this layout that I had created in a Vicki Boutin class for Crop and Create probably about 3 or so years ago, I think the first one that came to Calgary,  that I hadn’t added pictures to yet.  Love this! (excuse that black line in the bottom right…it’s my headphones cord)

So that’s an idea of some of the challenges and projects that we worked on….if you get a chance to participate in an online crop, go for it…it’s great fun and it really gets the creative juices flowing….

 

Thanks for stopping by!

I just had fun with this. I used some milk paint and some distress inks…a little stamping and inking. The feathers and die are from Stampin Up.  The script stamp I have had in my stash forever!. I got the little heart tag in a swap and the ribbon is from my stash.
