Virginia's View Challenge #19


I am popping in today, to share a card I made this weekend, for the newest Virginia's View Challenge blog. It is all about Coloring, and I couldn't resist using my Copics for this one!

I used a new die and stamp set from MFT's latest release, and oh my, do I love those little elves! They are so cute!

To start, I stamped and colored my little elf, and trimmed him out using detail scissors. I did the same with the two other gift images. I then die cut the Diagonal Stitched Cover-Up companion die, and stamped a sentiment from the Hand Lettered Holiday set. Before I attached it to a Kraft notecard with foam, I stamped the snowflake image repeatedly in white pigment ink.

I placed my sweet little elf, and gifts onto the card, and added a little bit of Glossy Accents to his buttons, as well as the bell on his hat.

One Christmas card down, a million to go! Oh my! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

Share Joy Challenge #6


It has been another busy week on the blog! I am here to share the newest Share Joy Challenge for this week!

With Halloween right around the corner, you may chose to make something inspired by this adorable candy jar, or you can use the sketch, or even both! I chose the sketch, and paired them with a few lovely stamp sets!

I started with a trimmed down panel, and cut a circle out of the center with a die. I then ran it through my Big Shot with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder. I love the texture! I lightly traced the circle onto my card base, and blended in light and dark purples. Moving on to my flower, I stamped the lovely sunflower from the Simply Stamped - Sunflower set, and then die cut it out with the coordinating dies.

I set the bloom aside, and created a sentiment strip on vellum, using the Free Spirit set, and white embossing powder. I then adhered all of my elements down, and added a few frosted gems. 

Thank you for stopping by today! For some reason InLinkz doesn't want to work with TE stamps and dies, so I have linked to them in my post if you need it.

I hope you play along! I look forward to seeing what you make!

RIC #93

Hiya friends!

Today, I am bringing you the latest Runway Inspired Challenge! Check out the fun colors, and design of her dress, so cool!

I decided on using the wave pattern of her skirt, as well as some of the colors, and chose the fun Soda Pop set, and matching dies, from MFT, for my card!

I started by die cutting the pop bottles, and blending in colors that were in her skirt. I then took a paint brush with watered down ink, and flicked it onto the bottles. As those dried, I heat embossed the happy birthday onto vellum, and adhered those to the bottles. I also used a bit of silver cardstock to add the bottle caps.

After estimating where the waves would go, I applied a bit of blue ink, and blended it upwards. I then adhered my white die cuts to the bard base, and adhered my bottles. I stamped my sentiment in black ink, and added dots to show it continued on the inside.

So, there is my card for this challenge! Sadly, it will be my last, as I am stepping down from the team. I have had an amazing time working with Jen, and the wonderful ladies. It was such an amazing honor, and I will treasure it! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Jen! 

Please be sure to stop on over and visit the other team members, to see their gorgeous creations!
