Well this month for our team challenge we were suppose to use washi tape on our card. I had a hard time figuring out what to do with the washi tape. I saw this sketch on the Freshly Made Sketch challenge and decided to use it to make my card. I layered the washi tape on a piece of whisper white CS and cut into a flag shape. The paper with the trees I stamped on whisper white with versa mark and embossed with clear embossing powder, I then sponged over that with smoky slate ink. This is a pretty clean and simple card but I like how it turned out. Sometimes its a challenge for me not to add a bunch of layers. I am loving the little candy dots lately sometimes you just need a little something and they work perfect. All items on this card are Stampin UP.
That's it for now. Thank you for stopping by and have a great week.
This is the Easter card I made for my kids this year. This is so fun. The chicks are made from the Circle punch, itty bitty flower punch, the scallop circle punch, and the owl punch. I made the grass using the new fringe scissors. The clouds are done using a template and sponging soft sky ink.
Happy Super Bowl Sunday!
Today's card uses another stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog. It's called flowering fields on page 12. You can have this beautiful stamp set for free with a qualifying order. I stamped some of the flowers with versa mark and embossed with white embossing powder. The other ones were stamped in blackberry bliss. What do you think of that ribbon? The pool party glitter ribbon is in the Occasions catalog and it is AMAZING. Most glitter ribbons can be difficult to work with but not this one. It is so easy to work with and ties beautifully. The sentiment is from the "First Sight" stamp set in the Occasions catalog.
Well that's about it for today. I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend and enjoying the Super Bowl today.
These are a couple of Sympathy cards I made this week for 2 different friends. I used the same set Pleasant Poppies and water colored one with Primrose Petals and the other with Raspberry ripple. Love the new In-colors from Stampin Up! I used 2 different framelits from the Apothecary Accents set. On the bottom of the top card I used one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits (love them) and the other one I used one of the Adorning Accents Edgelits. The ribbon is just some of the Taffeta Ribbon in very vanilla which I sponged with the matching in-colors to get the color I wanted. The sentiment is done using a stamp from the Petite Pairs Stamp set and punched out with the new Ticket Duo Punch. The very vanilla layer is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Folder. Well thats it for me tonight. Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to leave a comment, I would love to hear what you think.
