Outlawz – Thursday with a Twist – Fun in the Sun – June 22nd

GuestDesignerBadge2017

Hello everyone. I was invited to be a guest designer for the month of June by the DT team at Outlawz. You can join for free! They have a fabulous blog – full of challenges, tutorials, forum, freebies, gallery and more. I am designing for their Thursday Twist Challenges. This challenge is “open” with a added twist each week. This week’s Twist is “Fun in the Sun.” I designed two different cards for this challenge. Click on the link below to find out more about this fabulous group, The Outlawz Challenges. I made two cards for this challenge. This month’s sponsor is Whimsy Stamps.

Card 1: For my first card,  The sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps, called “Vintage Sentiments.” This is my “Go To” for digital sentiment stamps. There are 14 general script sentiment stamps with this file. I used an adorable Bugaboo (retired) stamp  called, “Sumduckdive.”. I coloured him with Copics, fussy cut him out and set aside. Next I arranged the layout and using Sun die from MFT - SUN, MOON & STARS, and the wave and fish dies from Marianne Designs - Eline’s Whale and Eline’s Tropical Fish. I assembled the card using glue and dimensionals and added some gem bubbles for the finishing touch.

Using Embossing to create Texture!

Last week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown, they challenged us to using the Embossing technique. Because I already had my folders out, I decided to go further into embossing.

I purchased this adorable Santa by Stamping Bellas called Santa is Stuck, I coloured the image using Copic markers. Note: I stamped two images into Neenah Solar White paper, and the other on Ranger’s Surfaces Specialty Stamping Paper, The latter paper did not work well with Copic markers and they did not blend well. I included it into my blog to show the unsuspected poor results.

Card 1 – I used a brick patterned stencil and Dreamweaver paste to create the textured white brick background. I also embossed and cut our a small strip of red brick using  the folder from Marianne Design Embossing Folder and Die – Bricks. To colour the stamped image, I used Copics on Neenah Paper. Sentiment is from SSS.

Card 2 – I used the embossing folder from the Marianne Design Embossing Folder and Die – Bricks set to create the textured background. To colour the stamped image, I used Copics on the Ranger Paper. Sentiment is from the same Santa is Stuck stamp set.

Card 3 – I used both the folder and die from the Marianne Design Embossing Folder and Die – Bricks set to create the textured background. To colour the stamped image, I used Copics on theNeenah Paper. Sentiment is from the same Santa is Stuck stamp set.

Clean and Simple – With Sympathy

sympathyI wanted to make a clean and simple card, yet elegant at the same time. I purchased a number of beautiful Flourish die cuts by Marianne Designs – LR0344 Anja’s border Elegant. I die cut/embossed the flourish on plain white card stock and backed it with a textured blue. The sentiment is from SSS - HANDWRITTEN BORDERS.
