It’s the second Wednesday of November which means it’s time for a Designers Choice Challenge at The House That Stamp Built! Today, Cheri is hosting our challenge and she has chosen “Being Thankful” a perfect sentiment as we fast approach the Thanksgiving holiday here in the US!
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! You have until Tuesday, November 15th to enter.
For my “Being Thankful” card I began by stamping “Falling Leaves #3306-I” as a background. I then stamped the “Vertical Positive Foliage #6002-M” and gold heat embossed then stamped it again popping up selected images for added dimension. My sentiment is the classic “Thanksgiving Blessings #3214-G” which I also gold embossed. I scattered Stampendous Embossed Enamel in Ochre & Gold all over the edge and finished off with the new Nuvo Crystal Drops.
Thanks Cheri for this weeks “Being Thankful” theme. This is my favorite time of the year and I really enjoyed reflecting on the memories of family and thankfulness as we move through this holiday season.
Please show us your cards at The House that Stamps Built. Happy Wednesday!
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.
It’s Friday and time for a new challenge at A Day For Daisies! This week we are adding “Texture” to our projects. The challenge will run through Thursday, November 19th at noon on the A Day For Daisies Blog!
For my card today I used the absolutely adorable new image called, “Flying Fairy Song” The coloring is with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. After I colored the image, I run it through an embossing folder using an oval diffuser. Then I inked the raised texture with silver pigment ink by Hero Arts and added a mishmash of embossing enamels, Fran’tage Flakes, and embossing powders. I mean I really just added a bunch of different powders from my stash, put it on edges after applying versamark to help it stick, and heat set from the back to make sure the embossing powder grabbed the big flakes.
My sentiment is from My Favorite Things and the tag is a Simon Says Stamp die. If you haven’t added texture by selecting different powders, I’d encourage you to give it a whirl!
We’d also love for you to visit our Facebook Community Page where you can post your creations in addition to adding them on the blog. Adding texture to your projects is super fun and I can’t wait to see what your creations bring this week.
