The Alley Way Stamps Christmas in July

Posted on

The Alley Way Stamps (TAWS) is hosting a Be Inspired Challenge based on Christmas in July. In order to let those who may not own any TAWS stamps play along, they offer some freebie images on their blog that can be used. These three little trees are one such set!

The sentiment I used on this card is a vinyl rub on from EAD Designs‘ Christmas Sentiments 2 set. I really loved how sturdy the vinyl is and how easily it transferred onto my cardstock.

Here’s a close up of the card I made using a free image from The Alley Way Stamps. I coated the trees in Glossy Accents after coloring them with Prisma  Colored pencils blended with Gamsol.

As you may have guessed I am entering this card into the BE inspired Challenge #6 Something NEW challenge .

Happy Stamping,

One Good Thing Leads to Another

Posted on

I won this adorable snail from one of Birdie Brown’s Blog Challenges. He comes as part of a set called Spring Bugs. In a effort to create something fun and whimsical I colored his shell in a rainbow pattern.  The rainbow colors made me think of Peace, Love and Harmony a’la 1970’s hippie tie dye! And that led me to this sentiment from the Pursuit of Happiness collection from Stampin’ Up.

After I pierced the holes around the snail the card still looked a little plain and I was stumped as to what I wanted to add. Then I looked at this week’s Put a Bling on It challenge over at CAS-ual Friday’s and I knew just what to do. I think the rainbow colored jewels are the perfect addition for this card.

I will be entering this card in the following challenge: CAS-ual Friday’s Put a Bling on It CFC55

Here is a closer look at my groovy sentiment.

Happy Stamping,

A Blog Named Hero Card

Posted on

I created this card before I left for work this morning for the Dust ‘Em Off challenge being held at a Blog Named Hero. I don’t have a lot of Hero Arts stamps but, I had recently purchased this stamp and thought it would be perfect. It is called Woodland Critters and this is the first card I have made with this stamp set so be on the lookout for more to come!

I used Prisma Colored pencils and Gamsol blending solution to color the stamps. The background is sponged using Tempting Turquoise from Stampin’ Up and I cut a scrap of green paper to make the fringed grass at the bottom of the card. I’m not sure if you can see it in the pictures but, the butterflies are sparkly and the mushrooms have dimensional spots!

The challenge ends on May 25th USA time so get your entries in soon.

Happy Stamping,

Mo

 

 

Gooble Up the Good Times

  Thanksgiving is almost here and I am busy making my cards for my younger nieces and nephews. I am not a fan of turkey day cards for adults (it is all too commercialized nowadays). However, I can’t pass up a good excuse to make cards for the little ones. They love getting something in the mail just for them and I usually slip some stickers or a dollar in the card too!

 

I scored the background paper of the card on my Martha Stewart Score Board to give it some visual interest. The Pink Cat Studio digital image is Itty Bitty Betty – Turkey Ride and I colored it with Prisma colored pencils and blended them with Gamsol.
