PCC264 a Color Challenge

Thursday was an extremely productive day for me, I used a vacation day to do some crafting! Not only did I make the card for today, designed products for this Sunday of Christmas, my Sunday Stampers class this month, finished all swaps for Onstage in November and cards for some future posts. I was even able to sneak in a haircut!

Today’s card is for the Paper Craft Crew Color Challenge featuring Orange, Lemon-Lime, Black and a “Mystery” color.  While these colors scream Halloween to me, I challenged myself to come up with another theme.

 

For my “Mystery” color I picked Bermuda Bay, one of my all time favorite colors!  My card starts with a Whisper White card base, mat of Tangerine Tango and paper from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment is stamped in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White from the All Things Thanks stamp set, die cut with a layering oval and matted on a Tangerine Tango scallop oval die. The sentiment piece is backed with Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered to the card. Finishing touches are a Lemon Lime Twist 1/2″ Linen Ribbon bow and Black Rhinestones.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by, hope you are inspired to try making cards.

Ribbon of Courage for PCC263

Happy Monday, another weekend under our belts, hopefully you enjoyed yours as much as I did mine. Weather here was beautiful and I had time for a manicure and pedicure, oh how I love getting them.

This week it’s a Square Sketch challenge over at Paper Craft Crew, here’s the banner:

For my card I decided on the Ribbon of Courage Bundle. With this bundle, stamp and cut a support ribbon for your favorite cause.  Courage means so much to those who have it, and possibly even more to those who need it. Partner these encouraging phrases with an adaptable awareness ribbon for truly courageous message. This stamp set was inspired by Million Sales Achiever, Patty Bennett and includes 9 stamps.

My card is a 4.25″ Whisper White square with a layer of Fresh Floral Designer Series Paper and Whisper White for stamping. With Powder Pink Ink I stamped the large ribbon direct to a Whisper White piece 3.75″ x 4″, stamped, colored and die cut both hearts and die cut a Powder Pink Ribbon. The hearts are adhered directly to the card, sentiment is stamped and punched out with the classic label punch and adhered with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Rhinestones finish off the card.  Inside has a Powder Pink die cut heart and sentiment from the stamp set.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by, hope you are inspired to try making cards.

Who doesn’t love when leaves change their colors?

Today’s card highlights one of the pleasures of fall – the changing colors of leaves. Don’t you just love going for a nice drive in the country to look at all the beautiful colors of the leaves as they change. I can remember as a child it was a special treat to take a car ride on the weekend just to look at the colors of leaves and have dinner at a restaurant, anyone still do that?

My card features the Colorful Seasons Bundle, buy these two coordinating products and save 10%.  Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set – Summer, spring, winter, autumn… we don’t care what season it is…we’ll stamp for all of them with this set and we’ll have fun doing it, set includes 24 photopolymer stamps. The Seasonal Layers Framelits Thinlits Dies helps create die-cut accents easily with Thinlits dies and the Big Shot, the set includes 17 dies and the largest image is 6-1/8″ x 1/2″.

My card starts with a Thick Very Vanilla card stock card base and mat of Early Espresso which is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the base. Next is a piece of Very Vanilla with the sentiment stamped in the middle, branch die cut from Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack and a bunch of leaves die cut from a variety of scraps. Some of the colors I used include Rich Razzleberry, Copper Foil, Crushed Curry, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Berry Burst – just raid your scrap pile (I know you have one!), some are glued directly to the card some are backed with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Today, October 10th is the final day of the Stampin’ Up! World Card Making Specials which features Note Cards with matching envelopes and a variety of stamp sets.  Download the brochure here:WCMD_DEMO-Flyer_US

Paper Pumpkin Alternative for PCC262

Happy Saturday, any special plans?  I have errands to run and need to prep for my October Sunday Stampers class later this month. Hard to believe it’s October already.

Today’s card is for the Paper Craft Crew Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge, banner below.

For my card I’ve picked right down the middle: Baker’s Twine – Fall – Punch/Die Cut and used the September Paper Pumpkin Kit since the theme was Fall/Thanks for the Baker’s Twine & Die Cuts. To get started I inked the Sheet Music Background Stamp with Soft Suede ink, stamped off on scrap paper then stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock. Next using Sponge Daubers, inked the edges all over with Soft Suede, Sahara Sand, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze ink and crinkled the paper with my hands for texture, this piece was added with Stampin’ Dimensionals to mats of Cajun Craze and Early Espresso and finally card base of Very Vanilla.  Greeting from Painted Harvest stamp set is stamped in Cajun Craze on Very Vanilla and distressed in the same manner at the Music Sheet piece and adhered with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also used the same ink colors to sponge color on the leafs and spritzed  them with Clear Wink of Stella for a little added sparkle. Acorns are stamped and fussy cut with Paper Snips. Leafs are layered, adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals and finished with a Baker’s Twine bow made with four strands of twine.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by, hope you are inspired to try making cards.

PCC261 Color Combination

Hope you had a nice weekend, we had some of the nicest weather, not to hot and not to cold, just perfect for morning coffee on the porch and sitting outside in the evening!

Todays card is for the Paper Craft Crew Color Challenge PCC261.  Fun how when I first saw the color selection I was a little stumped, but when I looked again this weekend, after first thinking of fall colors, I looked through my stamp sets and saw the WaterColor Wings set and decided these colors would make a beautiful butterfly and I was right!

 

The first layer of my Butterfly is Lemon Lime Twist, followed by Tranquil Tide and Cajun Craze, once stamped on a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock I used the Bold Butterfly Framelits to die cut the butterfly and adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The Very Vanilla Mat was run through the Big Shot using the Layering Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder. While hard to see the embossing in the photo, in person it’s beautiful.  To finish off the card I added some Lemon Lime Twist ribbon and Pearls to the butterfly.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by, hope you are inspired to try card making today.
