Here is another card I made for one of the VSN challenge. I combined it with last weeks MFT sketch. For my card I picked the Pure Innocence set called Snow Day. I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock as well as different patterned paper from Echo Parks Season’s Greetings. The image and clothes pieces were colored with Copic Markers (jacket/boots: R17, R29, R39   Hat: YG21, YG25, YG17   Pants: B000, B12, B14    Hair: Y23, E25, E29    Skin: E0000, E00, E01) cut out and assembled.

A piece of Season’s Greetings paper was cut with MFT’s Tag die-namic die. The edges were sanded before the paper was stitched to a piece of Solar White cardstock. A sentiment from Snow Day was stamped on the right edge in Tuxedo Black Ink. The paper pieced image was adhered to the tag with dimensionals. Sugar Sparkly Fluff was added to the pom poms of the hat and the rims of the boot. Stardust Stickles was added to the snowballs.

Two 4″ long strips of Season’s Greetings were cut with the Small Scalloped Border Die-namics die, sanded and adhered to a 4″ x 5″ piece of the same paper pack.  a 3 1/4″ wide patterend paper was adhered on top of the blue paper and two 3/8″ wide Kraft strips were adhered to the papers before they were stitched to a 1/4″ bigger piece of Kraft cardstock.

White Organdy Ribbon was tied above the red strips and topped with a blue button, which was tied on with iridescent curling ribbon. Before the tag was adhered to the layers with dimensionals, a button was tied to the top with more curling ribbon.

Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with a Snowflake Borderabilities die. The snowflakes were airbrushed with Copic Marker B02. The snowflakes were adhered to the layers with dimensionals. The airbrushed parts of the snowflake were covered with Stardust Stickles. Everything was adhered to the card base a 4 1/2″ x 11″ piece of white cardstock, folded in half.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.

This month challenge at Inspiration Emporium is to use metal somewhere on your project. You have all month to make a project for that challenge and link it to the challenge blog entry.

The card I created for last weeks Way to Use it challenge on Splitcoast works for that. The WTC was to use staples on your card. I used an image I had colored with Copic Markers during the CHA Super show. I can’t remember the colors I used nor do I know what the patterned paper is that I used for her dress. I had walked around and begged for a small piece of paper that I could use to dress her up.

The image is from MFT’s Sunflower Girl. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was cut out with Classic Oval Nestabilities, layered on a piece of Kraft cardstock, cut and embossed with a Classic Scallop Oval Nestabilities die and the edges of the oval were paper pierced. The image was masked, the background covered with Cloud dies cut with the Cloud Die-namic die and airbrushed with Copic Marker B02.

The sketch for this card was from last weeks MFT sketch challenge.  The paper used for this card is from the Echo Park Walk in the Park paper pack. The lower white piece of cardstock had been embossed with the Cuttlebug Polka Dot embossing folder.

The staples were added with Tim’s tiny attacher.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have time to participate in the challenge. You have all September to do so and you may win a $50 shopping spree if you win.

Have a wonderful day!

As soon as I saw this darling image for the first time, I ran to the MFT store and ordered it right away. How cute can it get?

When  Jenn and decided to  cyber stamp yesterday, I knew it was the perfect time to get this set out. Okay..the brown isn’t quite orange….but it was an inspiration challenge. I like to take challenges as starting points to get me going and then…who knows where the card ends up. LOL

I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers (Bee costume: Y13, Y15, Y17, E08, E07, E19,    Hair: N5, N7, N9,    Skin: E000, E01, E11,    sky: B0000, B000,    Wings: BG10, BG11). The image was cut out with a Classic Rectangle Nestabilities die. MME Stella & Rose Gertie Paper was cut with MFT’s Grass Die-namics die and adhered to the bottom of the rectangle. Stardust Stickles Glitter was added to the wings of the image.

Since I was using a My Favorite Things image I thought I would use the card sketch from their weekly sketch challenge for my card. I was struggling with it for a bit until a way to make the layers look right for me.

For the layers I used patterned paper from MME Stella & Rose Gertie and Mabel paper pack. The bottom layers along with some white Melissa Frances Ribbon were stitched to the card base, a 4 1/4″ x 10″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, folded in half. The bottom corners were corner rounded.

The sentiment is from MFT’s Peek A Boo set. It was stamped on a piece of Solar White cardstock that had been cut and embossed with Petite Oval Nestabilities and colored with Copic Markers (Y00, Y11, Y13). Recollection flowers (with some added Stardust Stickles) and Recollection Rhinestone swirls finish off the card front.

We might be cyber stamping some more tonight. Check in on facebook and hang out with us. Hugs and smiles
