C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 452 – 25th of January – Distress your project/Vintage

DTbadge

For the CRAFT Challenge this week, I went more with a vintage card vs distressed. I used an older stamp I have from Stampendous called Snowy Postcard. I created a vignette around the edge of the postcard using three brown tones of distress inks. I also added glitter holly die cuts for that little extra. I pasted the image on Neehan Desert Storm card stock.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 425 – 20th of July – Christmas

DTbadge

It is Christmas in July! It is never too early to start making Christmas cards for 2017. For my card I used a digital image from Dilly Beans called, “Holly Framed Penguin.” I coloured the little critter with my Derwent Inktense Coloured Pencils. I added added a sprig of holly from my Stampendous, “Die & Rubber Stamp Set Pop Up Winter Tweets Birds Free Us.” The background paper acts as my sentiment.

C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 384 – 6th of October – Inspiration Picture

DTbadge

For this week’s challenge we have a photo inspiration. Fall is my favorite time of the year because of the beautiful colours we get here in Ontario, Canada. For these challege, I used a stamp by Stampendous called Fall Leaves Background. I made a couple of variations of the cards using distress inks to colour the stamp. The sentiment is from SSS and the stitched leaves die cuts are from Lawn Fawn.

Cozy at Home

The challenge at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday is a basic sketch to use most of the card front with a stamped image. They also added  theme of “Peace”. I didn’t stamp the outside of my card, but did include, “Peace on Earth” on the inside. I used a stamp called Christmas Cottage by Stampendous. I coloured it with Copic markers, distress ink, and red stickles. I used the A2 Distressed Edges by Spellbinders for layering.

One Layer Christmas Cards

Today, I challenged myself  to make a one layer card. I have always been very hard to make a single layer card using only one sheet of paper because there can be no mistakes, and I like add-ons. Also if you use Copics, you must use the extra thick 110lb paper or the colours blend through. Today I think I was successful. I ended up with three different cards.

Card 1

I started with the simplest card first. I used a half sheet (5.5 x 8.5) Neenah Desert Storm Kraft. I ran it through my Big Shot using the Tulip Border folder by Stampin’ Up. Next I stamped Technique Tuesday’s Greenhouse Society stamp set, Berries in Brown Ink. I added red stickles to the berries, and frosted stickles for the snow.

I entered card 1 into CAS on Sunday – Emboss it (used embossing folder)

Card 2

For my second card, I used the other half of my kraft paper. The Stamp set I used is by PI – Winter Hills. I started by stamping the large house on the card center and added red to the roof and door. I also used B000 to add a shadow. I stamped another house on a small piece of masking paper which I carefully cut out and covered my coloured house. I randomly cut out a couple of hill shades and using them as a temporary stencil,brushed the edges with Unicorn white pigment ink. While I had the white ink out, I added snow and snowflakes. I added the trees using Forest Green Hero Arts ink, using both a first and second stamping for added depth. I added the sentiment and snowman (Versafine Onyx Black) and sketched a front walk using my .03 Copic Black Detail pen. The latter two, I added white using my Picket Fence Distress Marker.

I entered my card 2 into 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown. and A Gem of a Chalenge – Create a Scene

Card 3

My final card is more traditional. I used a new stamp I just received from Stampendous – Christmas Cottage. I started with masking off my card front (Neenah Solar white 110lb) so I wouldn’t get any ink on the back or inside of the card. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured it with Copic Markers. Next I lightly blended Broken China and Stormy Skies distress inks onto the card, going dark from the outside to lighter towards the middle. My final touches was to added a little glitter with Stickles.

UPDATE: My Winter Hills card was selected as a Favorite of the Week at Splitcoaster Stampers. See Post #71 at http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/general-stamping-talk-f17/favorites-week-ending-october-26-2014-a-t593426-2.html
