Hippo Birthday


My card today is for this weeks CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers is Water Animals. 
I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel. I stamped the hippo, hat and balloons on a separate piece of white cardstock, colored them and cut them out with the coordinating die. I created a background by using a star stencil.  
To finish the card I popped them up on the front of the card and added an embossed sentiment.

Beyond The Blue - 62

It's time for a new challenge at Beyond the Blue, we are just a group of friends who started a challenge to incorporate some of the techniques that our fearless leader and friend Lydia aka UnderstandBlue (hince where the name came from) introduced us to in her retreats and lives during the past couple years. 



To create my card I started with a white top folding card base, a red panel and a white panel.  
Using a paper plate, I covered the bottom with shaving cream and used a gift card to smooth it out. Next I dropped some re inker in the shaving cream and used a toothpick to swirl it around. I laid my white panel of cardstock down on a craft mat, placed the stencil over it and then picked up some of the shaving cream with the gift card and scraped it across the stencil giving me this result when I lifted the stencil.

Happy Wednesday! 
The Creative Team at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is hosting a hop over on Instagram and there is a prize for leaving a comment so head over there and hop along for lots of inspiration. My handle is @cealp 


To create this card I started with a white top folding note card, some kraft cardstock and a couple pieces of white cardstock.
I cut one piece of white cardstock down to 5 x 4 3/4 and inked blended several different shades of blue ink over it to depict water. The second one I used to stamp the puppy image, colored him using Copic markers and the fussy cut him out. 
I stamped the Shiplap background on kraft cardstock and cut it down to depict a peer for the puppy to fish off of. 
This is going to be the Hubs Father's Day card so I used the Father's Day sentiment.

I Carrot About You


I am up on the Dare 2B Artzy company blog today sharing this card. 

To make this card I started with a top folding white card base and a white panel. I did a little ink blending with some Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron for the grass and then cut it out with the Land and Clouds Border die and for the sky I used the Swirl stencil and some Salvaged Patina.

I stamped out the bunny with the wagon from the Hippity Hoppity set and some carrots from the Honey Bunny set colored them and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

Spring Card Camp - Day 1


I am up on the My Sweet Petunia company blog today for Team Tuesday sharing these two cards that I created for day one of the Spring Card Camp over at Online Card Classes. 

The technique is ink lifting and for the first card I used a background by Erin Lee Creative and the second card is a background stamp by Simon Says Stamp. 
To make these cards I started with white top folding card bases, black panels for mats and a white panel to ink blend on. 

I placed the panel on the Sticky Mat in the Original MISTI and laid the background stamp over it and then picked it up with the door of the Misti. I inked up the stamp with embossing ink and then stamped it down twice to get good coverage and embossed it with white powder.
Once it was dry I attached the panel to the black mat and then on to the card base.
I added greetings from Erin Lee Creative and PinkFresh Studio

It's Your Day


I'm back with another sample card for the latest release at Ink Blot Shop.
This one uses the All Tied Up stencil along with a couple of older sets.
To make this card I started with a top folding white card base, a panel of bristol cardstock and extra piece of white for the image circle.
I stamped the billy goat but before I inked him up I covered his bell because I wanted to add a tie. 
For the background I covered the entire panel with Pool Party reactive ink and then laid down the stencil and used some glitter paste so the ties are glittery. After it dried I then used some Blue Hawaii reactive ink and went over the entire panel leaving the ties the glittery pool party color. I cut this panel down to 5 X 4 3/4 and out of the scraps I cut out a tie for the billy goat to wear.
