My first card today is for the DTGD18MariLynn challenge. I dusted off another oldie but goodie stamp set by Stampin Up, called 'Oh So Sweet'. All four of the chocolate images were colored with markers directly on the stamp, huffed, then stamped onto ivory squares. This card fold technique is called the Waterfall technique....you pull the tab at the bottom and each square shows one at a time. Since there is no way to photograph all four of the stamped images at once, I inserted tiny photos to the right of each panel.
My next card was created for the DTGD18CovingtonCrafter challenge. This card took about ten minutes to make once I decided on the stamp set....I love when that happens!! The rose from 'Blossom' was stamped with Stazon Jet Black; a white crayon was used randomly to act as a resist; yellow and pink inks were sponged over the image then buffed off with a rag, leaving the white crayon visible. The rose was fussy cut and popped up with foam tape. The sentiment is from the same set.
Next is a card I created for the DTGD18sleepyinseattle challenge. I love designer paper (my craft room is heavy with it!), especially when it does all of the work for me on a project! This fun summer-y paper is from Prima; it's been on my shelf for several years and I just recently re-discovered it. After the main panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, the sentiment from the ODBD set, 'Bookmarks-Prayers' was stamped on the remaining strip of designer paper. Each section of the prayer was cut out, sponged, then adhered to the main panel.
For this card, I have combined the DTGD18nwilliams6 challenge with this week's Color Challenge 699 which is Rich Razzleberry, Berry Burst, and Old Olive. I used all three colors to sponge with the flower stencil, cut the panel out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies, then stamped the verse from 'Scripture Collection 9' with razzleberry ink. The panel was matted in gold cardstock and three gold heart sequins were added, along with some Razzleberry ribbon. (I couldn't get a good photo of the gold sequins without causing a glare....bummer!)
Last but not least, this card was created for the DTGD18Benzi challenge. The background was created by scribbling different shades of alcohol markers onto a Ziploc bag, sprayed with rubbing alcohol, then 'mopped up' with a piece of glossy cardstock. Once the ink was dry, the panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies. A circle was then cut out of the panel, so that when the panel was matted, the white circle was available for the scripture verse from 'Surging Sea'. The circular frame was cut out with two dies from the ODBD Custom Pierced Circles Dies. I didn't want to cover up the marbled background, so I only used turquoise gems for embellishments.
Thanks for stopping by today!!
