Here is my card:


Here is how I put my card together:
  1. My card is an A2 card (horizontal) measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2,
  2. I cut a piece of design paper 4 1/4 x 3 1/2 and adhered it to the base of my card,
  3. I die cut the arch die and left the die on the cut piece and distress the background with  tumbled glass,
  4. I stamped the flamingo with Versafine Onyx Black to have a dark image and scanned it into my computer, I opened my silhouette program and mirrored the image,
  5. I then cut both flamingo's out with my Brother Scan and Cut, and colored them with copics R81, 83 and 85,
  6. I  stamped my sentiment and cut it out and used dimensional's to add it to my card,
  7. I finished my project by adding the heart.

Here is my card:


Here is how I created my card:
  1. My card is an A2 card (vertical) measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2,
  2. I cut a piece of cardstock to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, I die cut a circle on a piece of post it note and used it as a mask to create the moon.  I then took the circle I die cut out and covered the moon and distress the rest of the card with distress inks ( Chip Sapphire, Black Soot, Mustard Seed, Seedless Preserve, Antique Linen and Victorian Velvet).  I sprayed some Shimmer splattered some distress white picket paint onto the finished distress inked piece and adhered this to my card,
  3. I stamped and cut the images out with my Brother Scan and Cut, and then colored them with copics,
  4. I  stamped my sentiment and bats,
  5. Then I added the fence and used dimensional's on the characters to pop them up in front of the fence. 
I hope you enjoy looking at my card as much as I loved making it.  Here is a closer look at the card, can you see the Shimmer Spray I added?


Let's start the fun!  Just leave your comments and tell us which is your favorite stamp set.

Retro Rubber Challenge Blog #69

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Hello everyone!

I'm here with Retro Rubber Challenge Blog and we have another wonderful sketch challenge for you.  I love sketches because it gives you a chance to be creative.  Here is the sketch, I hope you will join the fun.  You have until August 25th to join the challenge.


No automatic alt text available.

The rules to play along with Retro Rubber are very simple, make sure the stamp you use on your project is at least one year or older.   For more details on the rules, you can find them over on Retro Rubber Challenge blog.  Be sure to stop over on the Retro Rubber Challenge blog to get more inspiration, the design team has some wonderful creations!

Here is my take on the sketch!

I am using one of my old but favorite stamp by Stampin Up called "Sail Away", which was released sometime in April 2011 and I believe retired now.  I decided I wanted to create my card horizontally, but still using the sketch.  I cut the two panels, then masked off the top panel to create the sun.  Next I created my background, making the water, mountains and clouds.  I then stamped the boat image and added the birds.  I finished the card off by adding the sentiment. 


Here I am showing you I added some wink of stella to make the water look like it is sparkling.  Can you just image it, sitting in the boat looking at the beautiful water?


Thanks again for stopping by, please don't forget to stop over at the Retro Rubber Challenge blog and join the fun and check out the beautiful projects the design team members have created. You have until June 2nd to join in on the fun! 


Thinking of You

Tuesday, August 8, 2017

Hello everyone,

I have a CAS card I am sharing with you today.  My card was inspired by the CASology Challenge this week and the cue word is "Safari".  It was also inspired by the a2z Scrapbooking Challenge this month which is "bright and beautiful".  I think I managed to create both of these challenges.  The sun is bright and beautiful and love the silhouette of the giraffe.  I am using the Hero Arts Birthday Animal Silhouette stamp set and the sentiment came from the Hero Arts Color Layering Water Lillies.

Here is my take on the challenge.


Thank you so much for stopping by, please come back again soon!

Joy Clair - Let's Celebrate

Friday, August 4, 2017

Hello everyone,

I am here with Joy Clair with a birthday card to share with you.  It's the summer time, and it just seems like everyone's birthday is during the summer months.  My granddaughters have lots of birthday party's to attend!

Here is my card I have to share with you today.  It's a cute birthday card that is perfect for a child.  The set is called "Let's Celebrate, it has lots of images you can use.  This set is very versatile.  I chose to just use the balloons on my card today.


Here is a closer look at it....do you see the shimmer?  I used some Shimmer Sparkle spray to get the shine.  


Here is how I put my card together:

1.  An A2 card,
2.  I masked my card off so I would have the distress color in the center of my card,


3.  I added some of the images to my card with ink,
4.  I sprayed my card with Shimmer Spray,
5.  I then cut the balloons out using my Silhouette,
6.  I colored them using Copic markers - these are the colors I used:
R81, 83, 85,  Y17, Y38, YR68, and BV05, 07, 09,
7.  After the Shimmer dried, I adhered the two balloons to the card and added the middle one with dimensionals,
8.  I finished off my card by adding the sentiment.

Have you stopped by the Joy Clair blog to play along with the current challenge which is "anything goes". If not, please come play, Joy Clair will be giving away one $25 gift card to the Joy Clair Store, randomly selected to give everyone a chance to win.
