Hi Again Stampers!!

Having fun with designing and this card was created using the Splitcoaststampers’CC538 Color Challenge (even included the "dessert" element  of  Stripes :-))  along with the CAS338 “Cute Critters” Challenge and since it is a Christmas card, one of my August designs for the CCC15 Christmas Card Challenge.

I am so excited!!   I was able to find this House Mouse Designs® by Stampendous®! stamp at a recent clearance sale and have a few friends that just love "cutsey"images :-)  I think you could use this image for encouragement, winter birthday as well as Christmas...what do you think?

Stamp the sentiment from Wondrous Wreath using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, add a few shadows to the letters with the Sahara Sand marker and add a bit of splatter with the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Island Indigo Classic Ink (stamping off before stamping onto the panel).

Cut the image out with the Big Shot™ and the smallest Envelope Liner Framelit™  (also cutting the liner from Melon Mambo cardstock as well- splitting this piece in half).

Mount the focal image onto the split Melon Mambo die cut piece to create a tag, mount the “tag” using Stampin’ Dimensionals® onto the embossed Island  Indigo cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Melon  Mambo cardstock, trim once more and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Count Your Blessings- A One Layer "Strip Down" and Color Challenge


Hi Stampers!

This card was created using just one layer for the One Layer Simplicity OLS19 “Strip Down”Challenge along with the CAS Colours & Sketches #138 Challenge.

This card was very simple to create:

Masking the strip on the cardstock, sponging Marina Mist Classic Ink for the background, stamping the postage cancellation stamp using Cajun Craze Classic Ink and the script stamp with Marina Mist Classic Ink, use the Embossing Buddy® to de-static the cardstock, stamping the leaves using Versamark® Ink, embossing  with White Stampin’ Emboss® Embossing Powder, sponging Always Artichoke and Cajun Craze onto the leaves and finishing off with the sentiment using Cajun Craze Classic Ink.
 
Another view of the "strip" :-)

Here is my last hostess sample for the recent 2015 Dare to Get Dirty Challenge for my good friend, Lydia’s DTGD15understandblueB Challenge (FYI- you can still create cards throughout the year and link to the challenges although the official challenge is over and you would not be eligible for the drawing for the vendor prizes) :-)

Again, one major rule of participation in the Dare To Get Dirty Challenges is that the actual challenge details are secret to all except the Fan Club Members…I can share the card but not the details on the actual challenge (unfortunately, any details on this card will reveal the challenge details, so if you have any questions, please let me know in the comment area).  


This card was a definite work in progress and incorporates a few Mixed Media techniques :-)
