Joy and Wonder

When I got new dies, I generally used them right away to test them out. Then I eventually use those pieces that I've cut. This is one of the die-cuts that has been sitting on my table for a while. I cut it out of green foil cardstock. Hard to tell in the picture, but the bottom layer is gold shimmery cardstock. I used Versamark ink and detail gold embossing powder for the sentiment, which is from Papertrey.

Thank You

The other day when I was looking through some books and folders, I came across a few cards (purchased ones that I had received) that I had wanted to try to recreate in some fashion. Here is a card that I made based on one of those cards.

The card base is ivory. I had a terrible time trying to get the pale stripes to show up on the right, and this was the best I could do. The card opens from the left side. The card front is cut off one inch from the right edge. I added a piece of Washi tape along the edge of the right side of the card front. The pale-striped patterned paper is actually on the inside of the card. The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up! set and is stamped with a bluish gray ink. The sentiment was cut and embossed with a Memory Box stitched rectangle die.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Fall to Layout #38, Take Two

This card is for the Clean and Simple Stamping blog's challenge, Fall to Layout #38, Take Two.

The patterned papers are from an old Die Cuts With a View matstack called "Linen Closet." I've had it for many years. (It's hard to tell, but the sentiment piece is patterned, also.) I matted the two layers with coordinating brown cardstock. I added three pearls for the butterfly's body, which was punched with a Martha Stewart punch. The card base is ivory.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Repeat Impressions Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge

I created this card for the Repeat Impression's challenge. The challenge is to choose three items from a Tic-Tac-Toe board. I chose the line across the middle: patterned paper, Washi tape, and black and white. Sorry I did not use a Repeat Impressions stamp on this card. (I did, however, use all RI stamps on the Halloween cards for the grandkids. :-) )

The sentiment is a die-cut. The bottom patterned paper is from The Paper Studio. I used Washi tape across the top of the patterned paper. Tic-tac-toe! :)

Rubbernecker Stamp - Times Three

I used the same Rubbernecker stamp on these three cards, and also the same markers to color it. Not a big difference between the three, but you get them all here, anyway:)

For this first one, I just stamped the image on ivory cardstock after coloring with markers. I matted it with blue cardstock. I embossed the image with a Darice Wire Fence folder. The sentiment was cut with a die three times and layered for dimension.

This was the second stamping of the image after spritzing the colored image with water. I matted with olive cardstock and cut the "hello" out of the same cardstock. It is layered, also. (I ended up not using the first stamping.)
This image was spritzed, also, and stamped on watercolor cardstock. I used the same Darice folder to emboss it. I used a metallic pen to draw the border around the edge. The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up! set. I cut it and the matting with Nestabilities. I colored the scallops with the same metallic pen.
