Lindy’s Stamp Gang Feb 2016 Color Challenge

I was home today after spending more time in the dental chair having my 5th root canal since November so what else do you do when you’re feeling blue, but to create ART!  At least I do. So, today I worked on the February 2016, Lindy’s Stamp Gang Challenge.


I was really inspired by the colors for this challenge and luckily, had them all already in my stash. I used Flat Fabio Spray in, “Lucious Lime” and Flat Fabio Magical “Tears on My Pillow Tangerine” and Starburst Sprays in, Delphinium Turquoise , Jazzy Jivin’ Purple, and Hottie Patottie Hot Pink.

I went clean and geometric for this card but still wanted to add a little bit of the botanical inspiration from the elephant.  To accomplish this, I added the My Favorite Things feathers, which I sprayed with Delphinium Turquoise and Luscious Lime after heat embossing with Repeat Impressions “Tumbling Hearts 1210-K”  in white powder. I then added gold and platinum embossing powders to add sparkle and shine. My flag dies are from My Favorite Things and my sentiment is Wplus9 cut from remaining colored paper.  As a final step I applied colored hearts.

Lawn Fawn Halloween

I’m enjoying another day off and having fun with my stamps and ink.  Today I am playing with the Lawn Fawn “Monster Mash” and “Wish You Were Here” stamp set to make a Halloween card.  The background is distress ink in Chipped Sapphire, Seedless Preserves, Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed, and Black Soot.  I added some Perfect Pearls mixed with water for the “stars” and the white uniball pen to add spots on the monsters.  The wire is stamped with the dot pattern from “Wish You Were Here”.  The monsters are colored with Copic Markers and the spider is from the “Halloweenies” Paper Smooches stamp set. The ground is paper from Authentique and I used the curved Simon Says Stamp die and the Paper Smooches stitched curve.

Simon Says Stamp September Card Kit #3 & Tip

You are Fantastic


Wooden Dots

Here is my 3rd card from the Simon Says Stamp September kit.  Today I altered the color of the wooden dots with a sharpie paint marker.  I also used this great marker to edge any die cuts so it picks up a cast shadow and looks like you are a cutting pro.   The design of the card was based on The Paper Players card sketch #210.  I stamped the images with Hero Arts Cup O Joe, Soft Brown, and Butter Bar.  The circle die is My Favorite Things.

Love these cool shoes in the stamp from the Simon Says Stamp May Card Kit.  I paper pieced them with paper from the kit.  The band behind the shoes is molding paste over the star stencil and distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
