Color Throwdown # 469 & Reverse Confetti SFYTT # 54 - Beary Christmas


Hello stampin' friends! I'm glad I found some time this weekend to make this card with my Reverse Confetti Bearing Gifts Stamp set for the Color Throwdown Challenge # 649...such a gorgeous colour combo! I used the November Reverse Confetti Sketch for You To Try # 54 again....love, love, love this versatile sketch too!


I used Reverse Confetti Card Stock in Navy and Baby Blue and MFT Heavyweight Card Stock in Grout Grey.  I also used Distress Ink in Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans and Black Soot
Here is the fabulous Reverse Confetti SFYTT # 54!


I used the "smooshing technique" on watercolour paper with Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans and Black Soot Distress ink and then cut it out with the Gift Card Holder Tag Confetti Cuts and cut a second tag from Navy Cardstock then stamped and embossed a sentiment from the Bearing Gifts Stamp set.


I colored up the sweet Bearing Gifts bear and the mountains with my Copics and stamped several trees on the "smooshed" watercolor paper. I popped the bear up on the Navy Scalloped circle cut with the Pop Up Circle Confetti Cuts. I cut everything out with the coordinating Bearing Gifts Confetti Cuts.  Finally, embellishing with Navy hemp twine and sparkly silver YNS Gumdrops.


I finished the inside of my card too....I stamped a shadow image of the Bearing Gifts bear in Steel Grey Premium Dye Ink and embossed another sentiment from the stamp set cut with the Tall Tag Trio Confetti Cuts

Thanks SO much for stopping by and havin' a little look at my Reverse Confetti Bearing Gifts card for the Color Throwdown # 469 and the Reverse Confetti SFYTT # 54!

Curtain Call - Nov. 15 - Acorns - Your Next Stamp Sketch Challenge # 77...Thankful for You


Hello stampin' friends! It is time for another FUN challenge over at Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge for Nov. 15 - Acorns. We have another fabulous inspirational photo for you to use if you choose or anything goes! When I saw this photo I knew this Your Next Stamp Autumn Animals Stamp set would be perfect and I'm playing along with the Your Next Stamp Sketch Challenge # 77 too. 




I used the YNS Sketch # 77 but swapped out the circle element with the largest Cool Tag Die Set from Your Next Stamp.

I wanted to colour up the SWEET squirrel for my card. I just adore the wee acorn he's holding with a smiley face! Too cute! I stamped the images with  Your Next Stamp Black Olive Premium Dye Ink and coloured them with my Copics. The YNS Black Olive ink is specially formulated to be compatible with Copic Markers. I then cut out the images with the coordinating Autumn Animals Die Set and created a little scene on the tag with the YNS Spring/Summer Create a Scene Die Set.

The sweet sentiment is from the Autumn Animals Stamp set, stamped on Grout Grey Heavyweight Card Stock with MFT Paver Red Premium Dye. I embellished with American Crafts Brown Hemp Cord and Your Next Stamp Gumdrops.

Reverse Confetti - SFYTT # 54 - I'm Glad We're Friends


Hello Stampin' friends! I'm popping by with a card that I made for the Reverse Confetti SFYTT # 54 I also used Confetti Camera - Confetti Colors. I wanted to finally ink up this exclusive set that was released last year for the Simon Says Stamptember event for Reverse Confetti.  




I used Reverse Confetti Brick and Avocado Cardstock and MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Kraft and Natural 

 photo RCSFYTT54B_edited-RS2_zpsewxj6vjo.jpg
I stamped the images from the Forest Friends set on Bristol paper with Archival Brilliance Black Pigment Ink and then heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. Then I coloured them up with my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush pens. I used the Woodgrain Panel Confetti Cuts and coordinating Documented Confetti Cuts for the main panel. I cut the scalloped panel from the Love Note Confetti Cuts from Brick Cardstock and tucked it under the Woodgrain panel. I also tucked the Avocado fishtail banners cut from the Hang Ups Confetti Cuts

I used Mowed Lawn and Evergreen Bough Distress ink to make the "smooshed" background cut with Circle STAX Die-namics and layered over the Natural Cardstock cut with the Reverse Confetti Lacy Scallop Circles Confetti Cuts.  I stamped a sentiment from the Forest Friends Stamp set on the tag, tied it with green Hemp twine and embellished with a few red sparkly Gumdrops from YNS Holly Jolly Gumdrops

I finished up the inside of my Forest Friends card too...I used the Love Note and Class Act, Lacy Scallop Circles and Hang Ups Confetti Cuts again for the sentiment panel. I stamped another sentiment from the Forest Friends Stamp set

Your Next Stamp Sketch and Colour Challenge # 76...Deck the Halls


Hello stampin' friends! I made some time this weekend to play with NEW stamps from Your Next Stamp - Deck the Halls and join the Your Next Stamp Sketch and Colour Challenge # 76. This set is SO darn cute and I'm totally in love with these cute little animals dressed for winter and decking the halls. I'm excited that I was able to get a start on my Christmas cards and I know I will be making more cards with this darling Deck the Halls stamp set



The YNS Sketch Challenge # 76 is such a great sketch....I flipped it around so that it would work better with my images. 



 photo YNS76B_edited-RS2_zpslfepybj2.jpg

I used the Tim Holtz Crackle Stencil and embossing paste tinted with Pumice Stone Distress Ink to make a stone textured background for the Deck the Halls door. I then cut out the stone panel with Traditional Tag STAX Die-namics. I tucked the scalloped Reverse Confetti Love Note panel cut from Reverse Confetti Baby Blue Cardstock under the tag. I tied the tag with some Hemp cord and added a sprinkling of Sparkly Navy Blue YNS Gumdrops.

I stamped the poinsettia and holly and berries stamp from the Deck the Halls Stamp set randomly on the Brick Cardstock with embossing ink and embossed the images with clear embossing powder. I coloured up the door, steps and cute little animals from the Deck the Halls Stamp set with my Copics cut them out with the coordinating Deck the Halls Die set. I popped up the images on the embossed stone tag. I stamped a sentiment from the set on Kraft cardstock cut with the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics

I finished off the inside of the card too....I adore the little fox from this set...he's my favourite and I coloured a second image for the inside of the card. I used the Reverse Confetti Love Note Confetti Cuts cut from Reverse Confetti Navy Cardstock and cut the Reverse Confetti Brick Cardstock with the Class Act Confetti Cuts. I clear embossed the Brick panel again and stamped another sentiment from the Deck the Halls Stamp set.

La La Land Crafts - Curtain Call Challenge - Nov. 1 - Cider & Sunday Stamps Challenge # 164

Hello stampin' friends! We have a yummy inspirational challenge over at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Nov.1 - Cider. I hope you can join us! Remember you can take inspiration from the festive photo that we have for you or anything goes! I used Hot Cocoa Marci Digi from La La Land Crafts for this card.

 I used MFT Heavyweight Card Stock in Hot Fudge, Kraft, Paver Red, Orange Fizz and Primitive Cream 


And I used this GREAT sketch that they have over at Sunday Stamps # 164 but flipped around the sketch to work with my image. 
I took inspiration from the photo for the autumnal colour combo and coloured up the darling Hot Cocoa Marci digi from La La Land Crafts. I started off by stencilling with the Reverse Confetti Lotsa Dots Stencil with Rusty Hinge and Festive Berries Distress ink on Kraft Cardstock. I used my all time favourite MFT Horizontal Stitched Strips Die-nmaics to cut out a scrap of Orange Fizz Cardstock stamped with the MFT Wood Plank Background Stamp. I also used the MFT Vertical Stitched Strips and my MFT Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics for all the different layered strips.
I coloured Hot Cocoa Marci with my Copics, fussy cut her out and then popped her up on the card front. I stamped a sentiment from the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Harvest Blessings Stamp set on Primitive Heavyweight Cardstock with Paver Red Premium Dye Ink. I embellished with Orange Hemp cord and a sprinkling of sparkly Red YNS Gumdrops

 I finished up the inside of my card too....a shadow image of Hot Cocoa Marci and the sentiment is from the MFT DC Trick or Sweet Stamp set and Layered Treat Tag Die-namics.

Thanks SO much for stopping by and having a little look at my Hot Cocoa Marci card for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge Nov. 1 - Cider and the Sunday Stamps Challenge #164. I hope you can find some time to get crafty and join us!

Curtain Call Challenge - Sept. 1 Dreamcatcher- La-La Land Stamps & Chameleon - Hello


Hello stampin' friends! We have a beautiful inspirational photo for the Sept. 1 Curtain Call Challenge - Dreamcatcher. I hope you can join us for as we LOVE to seeing you beautiful creations. Remember you can take inspiration from the gorgeous Dreamcatcher photo that we have or anything goes!


I used MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Kraft, Natural, Sno Cone, Pink Lemonade and Steel Grey

 photo CCIC0917_edited-RS1_zpsdkbsf9bw.jpg

I made my card with several colours found in the pretty feathers and fabric flowers on the dreamcatcher. I didn't have any of the fun and trendy dreamcatcher stamp sets that are out on the market right now but thought I would colour up this sweet La-La Land Crafts Digi image of Marci with a Quill.

 photo CCIC0917F_edited-RS6_edited-1_zps81cwmxkc.jpg

I decided to pull out my Chameleon Color Tones and NEW Chameleon Color Tops to colour up this sweet girl. This was my first time colouring skin (NU00, NU1, NU2) and hair (BR2 with BR5 Color Top) with my Chameleons. It definitely gives a different effect than what I have typically been able to achieve with my Copics but I still like the look. With a little more practice I think I can achieve a more dimensional look like I get with my Copics. I used BG1 for her jeans and PK2 for her T-shift. For the hairband I used PK2 with PK4 Color Tops.    
 photo CCIC0917B_edited-RS2_zpsk5duxgyr.jpg
I cut the image out with my Circle STAX Die-namics, left the image in the die and inked with Broken China Distress ink. I then cut Steel Grey Heavyweight Cardstock with my Spellbinder Nestabilites Lacey Circle Die and popped the image panel on it. I cut several flowers from MFT felt to mimic the pretty fabric flowers on the dreamcatcher. I embellished with some Hemp twine and pink sequins.
 photo CCIC0917D_edited-RS4_zpsbqtbhdtd.jpg
I stamped the sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Bitty Banners Stamp Set in Grout Grey Premium Dye Ink and cut it with the Bitty Banner Confetti Cuts
 photo CCIC0917E_edited-RS5_zpsghy9ice7.jpg
I finished up the inside of my card too...I printed a shadow image of Marci with a Quill and coloured in the hearts on her T-shirt with a pink Stardust Sakura Gelly Roll Pen. I added another cluster of felt flowers and stamped a sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Stamp set A Friend Like You Stamp set in Grout Grey Premium Dye Ink

La-La Land Stamps...CTD457 & CAS(E) This Sketch # 236...You're a Class Act


Hello stampin' friends! I made some time today to get crafty, colour up this darling La-La Land Digi stamp - Reading Marci and play along with a couple FUN challenges! I made this card with the pretty colour combo over at the Color Throwdown # 457 and I followed the sketch that they have over at CAS(E) This Sketch # 236


I used MFT Heavyweight Card stock in Pink Lemonade, Banana Split and Grout Grey 


I LOVE this sketch that they have over at CAS(E)This Sketch! CAS is not my go-to style but I really tried to keep this card simple...at least it is simple in my books! 

 photo CTD457_edited-RS1_zpslu64wdd1.jpg
I finally did some inking with the Distress Oxide Inks that I recently bought on Strathmore Bristol Artist paper. Using the Bristol paper was highly recommend by Laura Bassen over at laurafadora in this video.... it is a GREAT tip for effortless blending! I used Worn Lipstick and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink and the sprinkled, flicked and dripped on some water for a few little water droplets. 
 photo CTD457C_edited-RS5_edited-1_zpsv3f9ppen.jpg

I coloured up Reading Marci with my Copics, cut the image with the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle Sugar Cuts from SugarPea Designs. I left the image in the die and inked with Spun Sugar Distress ink then matted it with Grout Grey Heavyweight Cardstock. The sentiment is from the Reverse Confetti Class Act Stamp set and stamped on Reverse Confetti Polar White Cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I tided the tag with Hemp cord and added a little sprinkle of sparkly gold YNS Gumdrops.  

 photo CTD457D_edited-RS4_zpskj4fouj4.jpg

I finished off the inside of my card too....I printed another digi image of Reading Marci as a shadow image and then stamped the sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Shine from Within Stamp set on a tag cut with MFT Traditional Tag STAX Die-namics. I used the "cut and re-cut technique" to shorted the tag. 
Thanks SO much for stopping by and havin' a little look at my La-La Land Stamps - Reading Marci card for the Color Throwdown # 457 and CAS(E) This Sketch # 236
