Hello and welcome to the last bloghop for this year, what a year its been. This week is a color challenge and boy was it a challenge, the colors where bright and maybe not my favorite ones.
Anyway I am actually happy with my card, so they must not have been too bad………………..lol
I used the Watercolor Shapes stamp set, its got big bold circle in it, which was perfect for the colors what we had to work with.
For the sentiment i choose the
I used the Ornate Layers die to cut out the card top and then even through you cannot see it I cut stripy bits of cardstock and adhesive to a piece of cardstock. Now this wasn’t exactly what i was expecting it to look like, i forgot that the dies are made for American measurements, not Australian, annoying.
I just carried on with stamped images inside the card.
Lets go see whatKatrina has made for us, I am excited to see what she has made for us.
Hi and welcome to BlogHop 151 of the InkSpired Artists.
This is our sketch for this week.
Let’s see what I have come up with, I used the Evergreen Elegance stamp set, it’s in your main cattie on page 91.
I think that sums it up, it’s the best time of the year. I used the colours of Evening Evergreen, which I might add I had said I didn’t like. Now it’s my green for Christmas.
I used the strip to the side from the Tidings of Christmas, page 133 of the main cattie. The main front was embossed with the leaves from the Wintery 3d, it’s one of two folders in the set from page 155 of the main cattie.
Again inside was just the designer paper and a sentiment.
Now your off to see what the very talented Julie Martin has done for you.
I loved this set from the beginning, was my first buy, if you like it also, you will find another card here on my blog.
I choose one of the designer papers for my background that was white with embossed silver trees on it. This formed the bases of the card, I then took another piece of the designer papers that had the little houses on it and fussy cut them. Now they are easy to cut, as you know I do not fuzzy cut much.
I then stamped down the cottage on Sahara Sand cardstock and using the same ink color. I did it twice. Taking the dies that do the outline of the house. Next I cut the second piece with the cottage details and outline together, as well as the die to make it look a little bit more like a landscape.
Inside i stamped two of the trees and the greeting, if you love this card please leave a comment.
The Painted Christmas Suite, is a double bundle suite of the Christmas Season Bundle and the Christmas to Remember Bundle. I have used the Christmas Season Bundle which is the stamps and the dies and the Christmas to Remember Stamps from the second set.
I used the Painted Christmas Designer Series Papers cutting them into a square for a change, mounted on Evening Evergreen cardstock.
I used a strip of the Gold out of the Gold and Rose Gold Metallic Specialty papers down the side of my card and put a ribbon trim on it.
On the inside I used one of the greetings and just stamped in a leaf.
Now we are off to see what my partner in crime has made, she always blows me away with her beautiful attention to detail and quirky little bits. Off to Teneale
Life gets in our way and we find ourselves a little late with this hop. We choose to use the Merriest Moments Bundle, which you can find on page 43 of your mini catalogue. Its quite a unique set which has dies and embossing folder that work so well together.
I first of all took a piece of white cardstock and taking my blending brushes, blended the colors of Cherry Cobbler and Old Oliver. I then took the outline die to cut out.
I then took a another piece of White Cardstock and put into the Hybrid embossing folder and cut it out. It was then attached to the colored cut out. I might add that I attached both of them to a embossed cardbase.
Silver embossing complimented the front of the card.
Now your off to see what my partner in crime Teneale has done.
Hi and welcome to another blog hop of the Inkspired Artists. Time is flying by and before we know it its going to be Christmas, so what better to make than a Christmas Card.
I choose to use the Poinsettia Petals Stamp and Dies on page 92 of the Annual Catalogue. I used a 1/2 sheet of White cardstock and sponged about two thirds of it with Cherry Cobbler ink on rest I sponged with Old Olive ink.
Using the dies with the insert and outlines I die cut the petals and lives, not the leves where stamped before cutting.
I made the Poinsettia Petals the my shape, the white and the piece across the front and the picket at the bottom of the white.
