CC184, Mojo53 White Swirled and Some Challenge Catch Ups
Good Tuesday afternoon!
I have been home the past two days with children not feeling well. That, of course, I don't like. The upside is I can see they are feeling better, and I've been able to relax and catch up on some challenges- THAT I like!!
This card is for today's color challenge at SCS, 'basic gray, riding hood red and always artichoke'. I combined this with yesterday's Mojo Monday sketch.
I love the Snow Swirled set, and I love this tree heat embossed. I added red rhinestones to trim the tree and I stamped the flower from Baroque Motifs in riding hood red, punched it out with the triple flower punch, added a tiny rhinestone and a dimensional to top off my tree. I also heat embossed the snowflake on basic gray card stock and cut it out with my circle cutter.
Stamps: Snow Swirled, Baroque Motifs
Paper: white, basic gray, riding hood red, always artichoke
Ink: white craft, black, riding hood red
Extras: rhinestones, ribbon, white ep, dimensionals
The Splitcoaststampers Fan Club theme this month is 'Colors of the Rainbow'. I have a couple of cards done for that. The first is "Fuzzy Skating". I haven't inked up this cute little guy up in years! I paper pieced his sweater, skates and the trees, then water colored the rest of him with my SU ink pads and a blender pen. I also added some white liquid applique to his hat and the heart on his sweater for a fluffy look. I added Stickles to the moon and stars for twinkle, and the ice and trees for a frosty look. The snowflake was heat embossed on night of navy card stock and punched out with a scallop punch. I also used Beate's week end sketch for the layout.
Stamps: Fuzzy Bear PSX, Snow Swirled SU
Paper: night of navy, white, soft sky dp
Ink: black, close to cocoa, tangerine tango, so saffron, kiwi kiss, always artichoke, white craft
Extras: White ep, ribbon, rhinestones, liquid applique, Stickles, dimensionals
This is another card for the Fan Club 'Glad we're Friends'. I paper pieced the flower from the 'One of a Kind' set with Bella Rose dp, added a white brad for the middle and popped it all up wit dimensionals. I used a white gel pen for detail. This is also the sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You.
Stamps: One of A Kind, Best Yet SU
Paper: black, white, bella rose dp, riding hood red
Extras: brad, rhinestones, triple flower- scallop- circle- and fern punches, white gel pen
'Happy Haunting' is for Our Creative Corner's sketch challenge. All the stamps are Inkadinkado Clear Stamps. I heat embossed the totally cool & creepy tree and the sentiment with Versa Mark ink and black diamond ep. I sponged some chalk around the tree for a harvest moon light look.
Paper: black, summer sun, elegant eggplant, white
Ink: Versa Mark, black
Extras: black diamond ep, rhinestones, Stickles, dimensionals
That's it for now, thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to smile a lot! :):)
