The House That Stamps Built; Designer Choice Challenge

It’s the second Wednesday of August which means it’s time for a Designers Choice Challenge at The House That Stamp Built! Today, Cherri is hosting our challenge and she has chosen “Who Let The Dogs Out.”  Another great theme Cheri!

As with our other challenges, we are offering a $25.00 gift certificate to the Repeat Impressions store for our random winner. Don’t forget, if you use a RI stamp, you get an extra entry!

For my “Who Let The Dogs Out” card I stenciled a background using Simon Says Stamp paw print stencil with distress inks. I then stamped Repeat Impressions “Golden Retriever 8121-P” on Bristol Smooth paper to create my focal image.  I added “hi friend” from Repeat Impressions “Hello Cling” set.

Who Let the Dogs Out

I wonder who will “let your dogs out” this week over at The House that Stamps Built.  Happy Wednesday!

Hello Junkies!

The Crafty Nurse here with more inspiration using the April Technique Junkies Release.   If you haven’t stopped by and gotten a peek at all the new releases, I would do so soon as tomorrow is the last day of the 15% discount on the April Release.

For my card I used “Crabby Set of 3 #PS008” over the Goosebumps Double Stencil technique on the Artistic Effects CD.  The sprays are Art Anthology “Waimea Bay” and “Warm” over a Simon Says Stamp wave stencil.

This is a great stamp for so many techniques and with the added sentiments, can be a fun and quirky card.  Hope you’ll stop by Technique Junkies to pick up some really great supplies!

Technique Junkies – Paws Prints

Hello fellow Technique Junkie Friends.  Today I’m bringing you some inky goodness using a new August Release stamp called “Paw Prints SD#641” now available at the Technique Junkies Store.  This stamp is perfect for anyone who has a four-legged friend.  He actually looks like our golden retriever whom we miss very much.

I began by clear heat embossing the image over Versafine Black Onyx ink onto smooth bristol paper.   I then applied Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers in yellow and orange and blended out with water.

The background is made using Distress Stains applied to my craft mat and soaked up in stages making sure to dry in between layers.  I then stenciled the paw print stencil I bought at Simon Says Stamp using Adirondack Espresso ink.

I hope you’ll join us over at the Technique Junkies Design Team Blog for more inktastic inspiration.  As always, stop by and check out all the new goodies at the Technique Junkies store.

By for now,

Lindy’s Stamp Gang March 2015 Color Challenge

Today I worked on the May 2015, Lindy’s Stamp Gang Challenge.

2015-may

I used Flat Fabio Magical Mica in, “Frency’s Pink Pouf”, Flat Fabio Spay in Ocean Breeze Blue, Starburst Sprays in, Silent Night Silver, and Clam Bake Beige, and Magical Mica in Hydrangea Blue.    I also used Angel Wings Mauve and Dessert Moon Turquoise Embossing Powder.

I started by spritzing and stenciling my card base with the above colors.  I used an embossing folder on the entire base and then framed it with Inca Gold in Blue.  I added some ephemera, which I put embossing powder on and colored my flowers using above sprays. The rainbow is from gold ferro and is a stencil from Simon Says Stamp.   I spritzed more color on and finished the card off with pearls on a wooden veneer piece colored with Ocean Breeze Blue.

Birthday Girl - Mo Manning Digi

 

Don’t you just love Mo Manning’s Digital images?  I sure do.  So whimsical and darling. I colored this digi with Copic Markers and used Doodle Bug paper.  The sketch is from The Fusion Challenge.  Background was created with the Simon Says Stamp Wave Stencil and the sea horse and foliage is from Tim Holtz Dies.  The sea horse and starfish are cut out with “sand” paper from Club Scrap. The sentiment is WPlus 9 “Hand Lettered Hello” heat embossed on a My Favorite Things flag label die.
