For my fall card I used the Sunflowers Image no. 12 provided by the sponsor. I printed the image onto Bristol cardstock and colored it using Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and an aqua brush. The sentiment is from a retired MFP stamp set.
For my card, I used pink and white cardstock. The background was die cut using Marianne Designs dies. The image is a digi image from Flourishes Luscious Layers stamp set (retired). I embellished my card with a multi-loop bow.
This week's CAS challenge is to use a sentiment only on your card front. I created the background using torn paper as a mask and brushing Chalk Pan Pastels over the mask. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Big Scripty Greetings stamp set.
The CAS Challenge this week is Cars! Do you name your car? Let us know how you came up with the name and create a card dedicated to your car!
For my card, I didn't really have a VW bug but I did get my first car in 1967! I don't recall naming it, though. So my "car" dedication is to the 1960s! I used a retired Stampin Up set called Groovy for my card.
We hope you'll share your car cards with us this week. You can find the challenge HERE.
I used a stamp and sentiment from the Unity Stamp Company February 2017 KOTM Unexpected Places to create my card. Cardstock and DSP from my stash. The leaf is from Studio Calico Mistables colored using Chameleon markers.
When you enter the challenge you are entered to win a prize from one of the many sponsors! You can enter the challenge HERE.
The theme is to add anything to your card or project that starts with the first letter of your first name. For my card, I used V for Vellum! I used an embossing folder to create the card front, colored the images and then overlayed using vellum.
We hope you'll share with us your CAS cards using this week's theme. You can find the challenge HERE.
For my card I used the Penny Black The Unfolding cling stamp. I colored directly to the stamp using Tombow markers and spritzing with water before stamping onto the cardstock. A very simple card using a sentiment from a Stampin Up stamp set.
For my card I used dies from Gina Marie Designs to create the card base and layering panel. The image was colored using Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and an aqua brush. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.
We hope you'll share your cards/projects using buttons with us; you can find the challenge HERE.
The Sisterhood of Crafters challenge theme is Harvest Hoedown (tractors, scarecrows, etc). The theme was chosen by DT member Darlene.
For my card, I used a retired Stampin Up set called Happy Fall Y'all. The pumpkin was die cut from a Gina Marie Designs die set. I stamped and colored the image directly onto the designer paper using Chameleon Colored Pencils and gamsol.
We hope you'll share your Harvest Hoedown cards/projects with us. You can find the challenge HERE.
For my card, I used stamps from my stash to create a CAS watercolored image. The PIP Challenge is anything goes. We hope you'll share your cards/projects with us this week; when you share your project you'll be entered for a random draw gift from the sponsor.
I used an image provided by the sponsor called Surfer Girl! The song inspiration I chose is Surfer Girl by the Beach Boys! I created a Z-fold card using ocean papers along with the image colored using Chameleon markers.
By chance, I found this Greetings from Indiana stamp at CreekBank Creations while attending a craft retreat a couple months ago. There you have it, I live in Indiana, the state bird is the Cardinal, the state flower is the Peony. The stamp was inked using Memento Black ink, the Cardinal was die cut from a Tim Holtz die and colored using chameleon markers. The background was stamped using the Penny Black Peony stamp, and the little "peony" was created using circle punches! (I really like the way my card turned out!)
One of my favorite techniques is watercolor. The image was printed on Canson 140lb Watercolor paper. I used a water brush and Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens to color the image. The anchor embellishment is from a string of beads!
For today's Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop entry I created a yellow/lemon yellow background on watercolor paper using Brusho pigment powders. The coffee cup was die cut from Penny Black Love Cup die set and colored using Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. The sentiment is from PTI Flipping Out stamp set. The fishtail banner die is from Frantic Stamper.
