Mission control - Make my Monday #158

Monday September 27,  2021

Hello

We have a new challenge over at

So since I am host I get to chose the theme..
EMBOSSING /DRY OR WET





So this card is full of embossing powder.. First I took black card stock and an old Club Scrap star background die and heat embossed with blue glitter embossing powder.  I then took some white card stock and using Ranger ink did a black border since the star piece was so small.. I stamped and heat embossed the My Favorite Things images and colored with copics. I added to the card. I then took some more Ranger ink and with blue did the piece to embossed the sentiment. I used a Tech. Tues. banner die.

Hello

It's time for a new challenge over at

Our letter this challenge is
M - 
MOTIVATIONAL / ENCOURAGING SENTIMENT

For my card I used some Amy Tangerine papers. I stamped the Annette Allen Watkins sentiment on the flower paper and then I stamped again on some Stampin up vellum. I created the frame with Stampin up card stock and My Favorite Things dies. I added the vellum to the back then laid it on the stamped floral. I had hoped that the sentiment would be darker doing it this way. I think it worked. I then used Spellbinder banner die and more Amy Tangerine paper and added to the bottom of the sentiment piece.

It's your birthday - Cardz 4 Guyz #280

Tuesday September 21, 2021

Hello

It's time for a new challenge over at

I am the host so I chose the theme to be
ADD SOME METAL


For my card I first chose the metal. I had asked hubby what should I use.. He said wait just a min. and went to the recycle can and pulled out the top of the foil that covers the new opened can of coffee.. So I took it and embossed the piece.. then I should of known better ran it through a stitch rectangle die. which took away the embossing.. Gesh. I should of known better but I didn't want to lost the stitching so guess it's one or the other.. I am glad with the final and it does show a little embossing. I looked for papers and went to Cosmo Cricket as it kinda has a masculine look.. it' cardz 4 guyz.. and laid out the papers and metal.. It needed something else so used a Paper Trey Ink tablet tab die and cut the alphabet paper. Then I took black card stock and die cut the Taylored Expressions flowers 4 times and layered. I added them and then the Simon Says sentiments to some scraps of Quick Quote paper. I used Tech. Tues. dies and cut the sentiments out. I added and then added a few more metal blings to the bottom.
