Snowflake Hugs Times Two!

Hi, everyone! This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Victoria aka Hawaiian....congrats, Victoria! When I saw this gorgeous card in Victoria's gallery, it looked like something I could try to recreate with Alcohol Inks and Lift Ink. I began by covering a piece of Yupo paper with pink, purple, and teal alcohol inks.  The sentiment and snowflakes from the SU set 'Beautiful Blizzard' were then inked with Alcohol Lift Ink, stamped onto the Yupo panel and then stamped onto a piece of white cardstock.  (Lifting and stamping the snowflakes was not difficult, however, the stamp has to be cleaned each time.)  Once the two panels were finished, they were trimmed, matted, then the cards were finished with Dazzling Diamonds glitter glue (which did not show up in the photographs...grrr!).

This week's Clean and Simple Challenge is 'December Birthdays'.  The card below, with the  snowflakes and sentiment lifted from the alcohol ink panel in the card above, fits this challenge perfectly.  Both my sister-in-law and her daughter are Christmas babies, so snowflakes are perfect without being 'Christmas-y'.

Saxophone Birthday

Hi, everyone!  Today I would like to share a quick card created for my nephew's birthday.  He began playing the saxophone in school this year and is excelling so far...we are so proud of him!!  I knew I wanted to use the saxophone image from 'Marvelous Things' from Our Daily Bread designs for his card.  The image was colored with three different markers before stamping onto a panel cut with the ODBD Custom Large Banners Dies.  The background paper is from the 'Notable Notes' Paper Collection and was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.  The tiny stars were cut out with the ODBD Custom Sparkling Stars Dies.

Cupcake Celebration

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Jessica Kruegel aka jexterra.....congrats, Jessica!  I chose this adorable cupcake card from her gallery as inspiration today.  For my card, two white panels were cut out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies; on one, the 'Cupcake' single was stamped,  watercolored at the bottom and sponged at the top; the largest panel was scored with a Scor-buddy.  A partial piece of designer paper from the NCC 'Sweet Shoppe' Paper Collection was cut with the same die, using the Die Re-sizing Technique.  A craft knife was used to cut through the cupcake so that the single candle (cut with the ODBD Custom Birthday Candles Dies) could be inserted.  The sentiment was cut with the ODBD Custom Celebrate and Wish Dies.  The sprinkles, embossed areas of the candle, and the sentiment were highlighted with a clear glaze pen and two red gemstones were added.  I will also be submitting this card to the Fan Club Central Theme since I used scoring on the white panel and since the candle is parallel to the rectangles.

Tropical Dream

Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge 716
Hi, everyone!  This week's Color Challenge over at Splitcoast is to use Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, and Blushing Bride with the 'dessert' option of foliage.  For my card, I used the following ODBD Custom Dies: Frangipani, Bitty Borders, Inspiration Words, and Pierced Rectangles.  The light pink panel was dry embossed with striped embossing folder so that I may also submit this to the Fan Club Central Theme Challenge for November.

Woodland Serenity

Hi, everyone!  This week's Clean and Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast is to use wooden images, embossing folders, stencils, etc.  For my quick card, I chose to combine the 'Wood Background' and 'Seek Me' stamp set, along with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies.  The Wood Background was inked in Crumb Cake, spritzed with water, then stamped onto white cardstock.  The trees from 'Seek Me' were inked in Mossy Meadow and over-stamped onto the wood image. Three faux brads were punched out and added to the corner.

My next card also features the 'Seek Me' stamp set, ODBD Custom Double Pierced Vintage Labels Dies, and ODBD Custom Vintage Labels Dies.  Both tree stamps from 'Seek Me' were used to create this scene, with the same ink, but stamped off for lighter shades.  The 'Wood Background' was inked in moss green, stamped onto the card base, then spritzed with water and stamped onto a piece of recycled cardboard.  The stamped cardboard layer was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.  Linen thread and trees and the buck cut from the ODBD Custom Trees and Deer Dies were added as finishing touches.
