emboss resist anniversary

I had a great mail day yesterday…one of the items being the new Simon Says Stamp Card Kit for the month of October  . I Had a plan with the heart but it kind of morphed into this card instead! Kind of fun just to let creativity flow!

I knew I wanted to do some water colouring so I decided to use some versa fine black in so I could clear emboss over it!! I had originally only stamped 3 hearts but once I got going I just couldn't stop I guess! :) Happens to the best of us when the creative juices are flowing!

I wanted the card to be bold. Think I accomplished that but that being said it was to bold to just have my die cut happy directly over the painted heart areas. I wanted all that pretty colour to still show through so why not pull out the vellum and add the die cut over top!! 

I hope you enjoy todays creation! And make sure to check out the Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge (tomorrow might be your last day for the emboss resist however!) 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

CAS(E) #141

Good day everyone!! Hope you're all doing well! I have a card for you today that was brought on by CAS(E) This sketch and the colour combo was from my friend Natasha! I had shown her all the new Wplus9 inks. I had just stamped them all out to check out the range of colour and she found a combo and asked me if I would make a card using it!! Here is my creation!!

Well with just getting the new inks and this fabulous leaf set (autumn leaves) in the mail I knew that I needed to become this sketch!! 

Before I started anything I die cut the square (from stitched square stax) and placed it on my card where I thought I wanted it. I then traced around it to help me know where to stamp the leaves so they would show up behind the square!

Once that was done I started with the outlined leaves, stamped both images. Once they were stamped I then went onto the solid image. I wanted ti to be offset so you could really see the outline of the leaves as well! Once that was done it still didn't seem finished to me so I then added the smaller leaf images to it!

For the sentiment I die cut the blessed die 3 times out of white card stock. I wanted it to be the Falling for Blue ink (and seriously such a beauty that one) so I smushed the ink pad over one if the dies before gluing them together! Of course its also covered in some wink of stellla cause who doesn't love some glitter. For the rest of the sentiment I cut up one from the doodle buds set and stamped around where the blessed die cut could be. 

Of course I popped up the square with the sentiment, cut the panel down and then mounted it on a white card base! Thats my card for today! I really hope you enjoy!

(other inks used were pumpkin spice, wild mango and warm wool all by Wplus9)

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Striped thanks

Heres a card I made for the PTI Stamp-A-Faire a few weeks ago.  Just didn't get a chance till now to post

This was from Laura Bassens sting challenge. Had a lot of fun with this card! I took the super stripes border dies from Papertrey Ink and placed them all in a row on block. I then inked them with versa mark ink and stamped my way along the front panel. Once that was complete I then took some Hero Arts white embossing powder covered the panel tapped it off then zapped it with my heat gun! Once it dried I grabbed some distress inks and started blending (lost lagoon, peacock feathers, tumbled glass and cracked pistachio) Once it was all blended I just added a few water droplets to the front of the panel and soaked them up with a paper towel! while I was waiting for that to fully dry I die cut 3 of the thanks dies and glued them all together and went over it with some distress ink as wellI had some spiced marmalade on my fingers which transferred to the word then I added some picked raspberry as well! Fun how those mishaps end up looking so sharp! Once that I was done I next took some silver DMC thread and unraveled it onto the card front..I played with it for a bit to make it look "messy" then glued my word die down over top and of course added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins to the front as well! Attached it all to a card base and thats how she got done!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoy my card even if its a little later then the original challenge!!!
