Inkspirational #158

Time for another awesome challenge over at Inkspirational! We have a cool photo to inspire for this one :)


A very simple card. Stamped image and sentiment then I used a bit of a criss-cross colouring style using Zig glitter pens.


Take any element you like from the photo. I feel a bit sorry for this bloke - that rain is pelting down hard and just on him!!

Supplies:

Merry and Bright

Hello! I had some fun last night playing in my new home. I have a two car garage which is now my craft room! Who puts their car in the garage anymore?? Not me!! LOL.

It's a pretty cool setup because I can either have music playing or even watch Netflix on the computer while crafting. 

I combined two of the new release stamp sets from Happy Little Stampers to create this Christmas card.


I stamped the sentimet (from the Let it Snow set) using my MISTI. I then randomly stamped my Christmas berries (from the Merry Kissmas set) around the edge of my panel. I coloured them with two different shades of red (Sharpie Markers) and then went over them with a glitter pen. I also used a white gel pen to highlight.

Supplies:

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -


Stamps and Fun - Clean and Simple
Sweet Stampin' Christmas - Anything Goes

HLS April CAS Challenge

Hello again! Yes, it is time again for a new CAS challenge at Happy Little Stampers.


We would like you to use Chevrons on your Clean and Simple cards.

Here is mine -


These chevrons came home with me all the way from England. While over there for the HLS Craft Retreat, I was able to stay with Sarah P and was able to raid her stash of dies :)

I coloured the strips with Sharpies and covered them with glitter using my Spectrum Noir glitter pen.

Here's a close up of the sparkle -


The sentiment is from the new Dandelion Wishes set and the sequins finished it off.

Supplies:


Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.

IF YOU USE STAMPS BY HAPPY LITTLE STAMPERS AND YOU ARE OUR RANDOM WINNER, YOUR PRIZE WILL BE DOUBLED!

HLS April Watercolour Challenge

Well, hello April! I hope you are ready for a new challenge over at Happy Little Stampers? We always kick off a new month with our Watercolour Challenge.


We would love if you played along with our optional twist but you don't have to. Anything Goes!

Here is my card -


I stamped my sentiment with Versafine black ink and embossed with clear powder. I masked it off and placed a stencil over the entire panel and used my versamark pad to smooch ink through the stencil. I then embossed it all with white powder. 

Using Zigs, I watercoloured the panel to create a rainbow.

Below is actually my first panel that I made but for some reason I didn't quite like it. It will grow on me and end up on a card, I'm sure :)


Supplies Used:

I hope to see you over at the challenge blog!

I decided to use the blue colour for my background after embossing my dandelions (from the new release set Dandelion Wishes). I smooshed Turquoise Brusho onto my panel, drying in between smooshing.

I die cut my sentiment out of sliver glitter paper. A few blue sequins finished it off.

Inkspirational #157

Hello! Well another fortnight has whooshed by and it's time for a new challenge at Inkspirational.

Our Designer's Choice for this challenge was chosen by Carol and she would like us to create something 'Mythical'.


When I think mythical, I think of fairies, unicorns, dragons, etc. I went with this cute little fairy clothesline for my card. I stamped it with versafine ink and clear embossed over the top. I sponged a little distress ink (Dusty Concord) in the background. I think purple is the perfect mythical colour :) I splashed a bit of water to create my splats and finished off by stamping my sentiment.


I hope to see you over at the challenge blog and join in with this fun word prompt!

Two Hearts

Hi there everyone. I have made two cards tonight utilising the same die but creating completely different cards. Thanks to the new challenge that Darnell has started called the 'Twofer Card Challenge', I was able to think outside the box. Congratulations to Darnell and her Design Team :)

You will have to excuse my photography as it is 9pm but I couldn't wait to take my pics.



For my first card, I used the die to create an embossed image. I stamped my lion and sentiment using my MISTI.

For the second card, I used the die and die cut as intended. The die comes out in two parts - the stitched edge and the full heart. I die cut twice using glitter paper and white cardstock. I wanted to stamp my sentiment within the heart then pop it up for dimension.


These cards were simple to create and took no time at all!
