Lavender Sunset

Hi, everyone! This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the Acorn online store......I chose this beautiful scarf.....the colors reminded me of a sunset.  For my card, I began by sponging the background sky with navy, lavender, pink, orange, and yellow.  A reverse mask was used to sponge the sun, then a torn piece of scratch paper was used to sponge random cloud lines.  The sponged panel and sentiment panel were cut with the 'Double Stitched  Rectangles' Dies. The 'Farm Fence' and 'Grass Lawn' dies were used to complete the background scene.  The vintage truck and flowers from 'Loads of Love' Stamp/Die Duos were stamped with Stazon Jet Black, cut out, water-colored, then popped up with foam tape over the scene. Three lavender hearts (cut with the same stamp/die set) were added.  (Note: all stamps and dies are from Divinity Designs LLC.) The truck windows, hubcaps, and heart centers were coated with a clear glaze pen.

Seagull Sunset

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Karen Thomas aka googoobaby....congrats, Karen!!  I absolutely fell in love with this card from Karen's gallery and tried to recreate it with the 'By the Bay' stamp set.  Though my colors turned out pretty bland, I kept the same clean layout and design....it was tough for me to not add any embellishments, but I resisted! :)  Once the panel was stamped and water-colored, I used a Pierced Rectangle Die from Divinity Designs LLC to frame it out.  The edges of the card base were sponged for a bit of depth.  All in all this card only took about 20 minutes....yay!!

Divinity Designs LLC October Design Team Color Challenge

Divinity Designs LLC October Design Team Color Challenge

Hi, everyone!  Kelley has given the Design Team another fun Color Challenge this month, which focuses on the Retro Christmas Paper Pad.  I decided to pair up these yummy, warm colors with the new 'Loads of Love' Stamp/Die Duos set and the Chevron Background Die.  The truck and pumpkins were stamped with Stazon Jet Black, cut out with the custom dies, water-colored, then popped up with foam tape.  The sentiment panels (and sign post) were cut out with the Pennant Flags Dies and Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies.  I was happy with the simplicity of this design, so, the only embellishment was the cranberry stitched ribbon.

Dinoroar Birthday

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Claudette aka lamoore....congrats, Claudette!!  I love to mask and sponge scenes, so I chose this awesome card from Claudette's gallery.  Instead of trees and sun, I added grass and dinosaurs to my scene since I needed a birthday card for one of my nephews.  The stamp set I used is 'Dinoroar' from Stampin Up.  The dino's were stamped in Stazon Jet Black, then watercolored.  To finish out the scene, I used the following dies from Divinity Designs LLC: Clouds and Raindrops (stencil for clouds), Pierced Rectangles, and Double Stitched Rectangles.

Happy Birthday, Princess!

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Diana Gibson....congrats, Diana!!  I chose this gorgeous card to case, but turned it into a birthday card for my niece.  Instead of an oval, I used a heart for the center and moved the sentiment panel to the other side.  The crown was stamped in Stazon Jet Black, colored with markers and sponges, then fussy cut and coated with a clear glaze pen.  Here is a list of items from Divinity Designs LLC used for this card:  Ornate Hearts Dies, Large Numbers Dies, Flourishes Embossing Folder, Pierced Rectangles Dies, Scalloped Rectangles Dies, Clouds and Raindrops Dies (tiny hearts), Easter Card Collection 2016 (crosses) and 'Princess' (retired from Our Daily Bread designs).

Never Stop Going

Hi, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from Cox and Cox....I thought that this rug was so cool, with the blended colors and copper colored fringe. For my card, I began by copper embossing the Grunge Cross onto white cardstock.  (Though this stamp set and coordinating die are retired from Our Daily Bread designs, I will not get rid of them since they are some of my faves for masculine cards.)  I normally would have created the Wrinkle Free Distress background first and then added the copper embossing, but I am so happy that I did the embossing first.  Once the inks (navy, green, brown) were smeared and spritzed onto a craft sheet, the raised embossing on the cardstock limited the saturation of the colors.  I love how it turned out!!  The inked panel was matted in white to balance the un-inked portions of the panel.  A separate cross was copper embossed, inked in the same manner, then cut out with the coordinating die and popped up with foam tape.  Brass brads and a metallic copper layer, along with a navy card base, rounded out the design.
