My Son's Birthday Card

 This is card that I did for my Son's Birthday Card which is today, Feb 27th. Cameron is 16 years old and he can officially get his driver's license but he doesn't have his learner's yet. I not sure if I would let him drive anyway. He plays Need for Speed too much... I'm also throwing this card plus a couple more in the ring for being on The Heartfelt Creations Design Team. I'm really crossing my fingers because I love their stamps and some of their stamps have dies especially made for them by Spellbinders which is another one of my favorite companies as well.

JustRite Friday Challenge 054: Sketch & Sneak Peek!

Here is my card for the JustRite Friday Challenge using the sketch to create a card. I started out with Early Espresso paper then used a light blue metallic paper as the 2nd layer. I cut a stripe of pattern paper from my stash 2" X 4 3/4". For the rectangle I used a Robin's Egg (blue color) metallic paper then used another piece of Early Espresso paper on top. I stamped the saying onto Very Vanilla paper using the set from the JustRite "Nature Nested Sentiments & Verse" using Cocoa pigment ink and embossed with Cocoa Bean EP. I cut it out using the deckled mega rectangle small by Spellbinders. I stamped on the edges using the flourish stamp from the Elements of Style by Stampin'Up using Chestnut Roam Fluid Chalk. Cut out the frame using Early Espresso paper & Heartfelt Creations die called Decorative Window. Color the frame using Molasses Smooch ink. Attached butterfly has shown as well as the 2 blue crystals.

ODBDSLC59 Embedded Embossing

To use embedded embossing, you punch out shapes or cut layers or strips out and then adhere them to your card base piece. Once adhered, place the entire layer in an embossing folder of your choice and emboss both the punched out shapes/layers/strips and the base piece all together. The result looks like seamless embossing … you have just embedded your shapes/layers to the card base. Here is my take on that great technique. I used Early Espresso as my base then took a piece of the new BoBunny 'Gabrielle' collection for my second layer. Then took peach color from the same collection and ran it thru the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. Using Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk ran it over to highlight the embossed image. Punch out different butterflies using a butterfly punch using different blue papers by Magenta. Cut out another butterfly using blue metallic paper and Bosscut Butterfly diecut. Attach all these cutouts onto blue paper from the Gabrielle collection. I then ran it thru the Square Lattice Embossing Folder by Stampin'Up. I stamped the butterfly from the ODBD Butterfly Single onto colored background that I had made using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. I cut it out leaving a little halo. I stamped the saying from the ODBD "Eternity" using Black Versafine inkpad. Cut it out using the Spellbinders "Fancy Tag #3. Sponge the edges using Aquamarine, Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalks.

I took another pattern paper from the same line and again sprayed with the same glimmer mist.

I took a heart shape doily and sprayed it with Vintage Pink and Key Lime glimmer mist. On top of the first layer I added a Brushed Gold paper that was punched out using Garden Trellis a Martha Stewart punch.

Mojo Monday 177 - CONTEST

Here is my card for the Mojo Monday 177 - CONTEST. I used Elegant Eggplant as my base. Then I stamped the flourish from the set called "Blessings" from Verve Stamps using white pigment ink then embossed using clear embossing powder on shimmery white paper. Applied Lavender and Blackberry Fluid Chalk over top, then wipe off the ink off the embossed area and ironed off the embossing powder. Layered this piece on top of Brushed Gold paper. Cut out a triangle using this fabulous paper that I was hoarding. Using the scallop punch from Stampin'Up I cut out this scallop using purple metallic paper then stamped the heart from the set "Love Story" from Verve in black pigment ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. Stamping saying from the same set using black pigment ink and black embossing powder. I took out my waterbrush and using US Artquest Mica Watercolor palette called "Interference" I colored the image. The shimmer from this paint doesn't do this justice it looks better in person. Using the Fancy Labels from the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder PLUS I cut this out from the purple metallic paper. I used Blackberry Fluid Chalk to enhance the embossed area. I cut out a piece of white paper stamped saying from the same set using black pigment ink and black EP.

Today's card that I would like to share with you is a card for the following challenges at the Shabby Tea Room, Flourishes Our Winter Thaw Challenge, and Mojo Monday 176 Sketch.   The challenge this week at the Shabby Tea Room was to create a card using only stamping, no pattern paper and only handmade embellishments. So I started out with white paper and to make my background I applied Top Boss clear embossing ink then I sponged in Mica Magic Lilac, Sugar Plum and Purple using black foam tips as shown. This is a technique that Cathie Allan showed me. Then I stamp CHSH 2720 over the background from the Stamp Barn using Popcorn Fluid Chalk. Then I took the pansy image from Flourishes using Black Vivid ink and stamp it over the background. Lastly I applied Very Vanilla Smooch Spritz from Clearsnap to add glimmer. It's really hard to photograph the shimmer in this background. I stamped images using Black Memento ink and colored with Copic Markers BV11, BV13, BV17, VG00, VG03, VG07, Y19 and Y38. I cut out 5 pansy images leaving a halo effect and placed them as shown for the Mojo Monday 176 Sketch. I made flowers using white tissue paper cutting them out using Scallop #2 die from Sizzix and spraying them with Grape Burst Smooch Spritz from Clearsnap and added a purple pearl for center. I cut a tag from the Spellbinder's Ribbon Fancy Tag. Stamped saying from Flourishes "Spring Bouquets" in Black Crafter's ink from Clearsnap. Add purple ribbon from Flourishes.
At Flourishes they have a beautiful inspiration photo which I used the Pansy stamp from the Calendar Set 1 and used the color purple as well.
