Hello

We have a new challenge over at 

This challenge is letter X
X EXTRA FOLDS


I stamped the Power Poppy cake on Kraft card stock. I colored with Copics. I stamped the Happy Day on the banner. I went over the dots on the cake with Nuvo drops. I used My favorite things oval stitch die. I used some Ranger ink to give color to the background. I added the image to the front. 
Now for the extra fold.. I took a slightly smaller A2 and added to the inside of the card. See below photo


the inside fold is on the right side. You can still open this flap to get to the inside of the card. I used Judi Kins balloon stamp and Quick Quote chalk inks and stamp quite a few balloons. I added some bows/strings to the balloons. I used Hero Arts sentiment to this page. I kinda did the dots on the cake with similar colors to the balloons just to tie it together.

I am using the image called Let's play ball.  I always need more boy cards and this one I think is perfect for a grand child.  I created the ground with copics and a tiny dots Stampin up stamp and Quick Quote chalk ink. I like that it looks like sand flying up.  I colored the image with copics. I used Ranger ink and my cloud template. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions and hb from Paper Trey Ink stamped with Stampin up ink. I found this designer paper at the bottom of my scrap box.. and digging deep is what I did.. lol. It's a page from a stamp magazine that I went through and tore out before I threw the magazines out. Like I don't have enough dp I had to pull from a magazine.. I know. It's crazy.. who can relate with that??

I'm dog-gone lost - Guest Designer for Krafty Chicks

Thursday February 18, 2021

Hello

It's week 3 for me being a guest designer over at

Our theme this week is
CLEAN AND SIMPLE - CAS

For a long time I didn't care to do CAS as it felt weird having so much white space.. But I have been doing them for some time now and loving them.  As soon as I saw the theme was CAS I knew what I wanted to do. I have had this red rubber dog image from Art Impressions for like forever.. It's quite old. I don't know if I've ever used it as the red rubber seemed quite clean.. I first stamped the My favorite things sentiment then added the dog. I colored the image with copics, it may be too dark?. I hope it doesn't distort the image too much being it's a slouching dog so it's not in it's true perky form. I laughed as I colored the image.. This card was so quick to create.  I hope it makes you smile.

EMERGENCY SERVICES

Gesh.. you'd think I would have some sort of emergency services images in all my stamps.. Nope. So I used a Stampers Delights image called Medical Heroes.

I have this awesome paper from Amy Tangerine that I thought would be an awesome background.  I used Ranger ink and distressed the edge. I used Stampin up die for the sentiment and used Ranger ink.  Thank you to all that are in the Emergency Services for all you do.

Hello

Today we have a mid month reminder for the current challenge over at 

Our theme is 
CAS and SYMPATHY


I like doing CAS cards. I use to not like them but since I have some bigger simple images it makes it easier. I took the Penny Black image and some Marvy Markers and colored up the stamp and huffed it to get it wet.. (my markers are so old I was afraid it wouldn't stamp well) I then used the Simon Says sentiment and Stampin up ink.  It's done. 1,2.3.. complete.
