Dare 2B Artzy Insta Hop & Giveaway


The Dare 2B Artzy team is hosting an Instagram hop promote the new release. Head over there and leave comments for a chance to win. There is also a discount code that you can use on a new release order. 

To create my card I started with a white top folding card base and another piece of white cardstock for the elements.
I stamped the girl and flowers, colored them with Copic markers and then cut them out with the coordinating dies. 
I created the flower box by using the widest banner in the slim mini wavy layers. I cut off the bottom points and then placed it in the score board and scored several times across the bottom. Next I ink blended some brown ink over it and added the flowers to it.

Beyond the Blue 51




Welcome to Day 10 of my valentines inspiration series. Today's card is also for the new challenge at Beyond the Blue to use a Gel Press pull. 


To create this card I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel. 
I placed the new Sticky mat by My Sweet Petunia in the Original Misti and then placed my panel in the middle of it and then inked up the script background. I love the sticky mat for this, you don't have to worry about your paper shifting if you need to stamp again. 
Next using the heart die cut, I cut out of the center of the panel, the gel press print and then a couple more times on scrap paper for dimension. I glued them all together and placed it in the negative space of the panel. 
To finish the card I used the love word die by Poppy Stamps and cut it out in gold for the background and white for the letters and then placed it over the heart.

Valentines Inspiration Day 8


Happy Wednesday! 
It's time for a new challenge at Make the Cards Challenge. We changed things up a little bit so we are a bi-weekly challenge now so you will have until Tuesday February 8th to play along



This card is also for Day 8 of my Valentine series. 




This card was simple to make and could be mass produced.  Its all dies and no stamping, however I did stamp an inside greeting of "you" 
It is hard to get a good photo with the card standing upright, but you can see the gold foil with it laying down.

Vintage Valentine



I am up on the My Sweet Petunia company blog sharing this card. which is also for Day 7 of my Valentine series. 


 

As I said in one of my earlier posts for this series, I don't see valentines day as a day just for couples I  see is as a day to show someone, anyone you love them. So that is why I am calling this card a vintage valentine. 



To create this card I started with a watercolor paper card base and a panel of watercolor paper. I placed the card base in the Original Misti and stamped script  using Old Gold ink. I also added some splatter stamped with Old Gold as well.
 I stamped the floral and butterfly images with Versafine Nocturne ink on the watercolor panel and painted  them using Daniel Smith watercolors. Next I cut them out using the coordinating dies. I inked around the edges of the sentiment with Old Gold as well to tie it in.

I love this conversation heart set, Heart Candy even thought it is retired I decided to still use it.

Trash Panda



Welcome to day 4 of my valentines series.
Today's card is brought to you by Ink On 3 in which I am also up on the Ink On 3 company blog with this card. 



To create this card, I started with a top folding white card base and a white Heavystock distress panel. 
To create the background I put down some Sweet Petunia Pink ink on a craft mat, spritzed it with water and then smooshed the panel of heavystock into it until I achieved a look I was pleased with. 
I stamped the raccoon aka trash panda on a piece of white cardstock, colored him and then cut him out with the coordinating dies and popped him up on the pink panel.

Triangles



It's our first challenge of the new year at Addicted to CAS, Vicki and she chose the code word Triangles 


I made two similar but different cards for this challenge. 
To create these two cards I started with a white top folding card base.
I used the triangle die by Erin Lee creative and cut it out of a gel press print and the gold foil paper.  mixed and matched the triangles and since I am in need of masculine birthday cards I decided to make them both into birthday cards.

Rainbow Valentine


Welcome to day 3 of my little valentines series. Valentines day to me is not just for couples, to me it's a day to show others no matter who they are that they are loved and appreciated. 
It's like a Jesus day to show the love of Jesus to everyone. 


My card today is also for the Beyond the Blue challenges. The BTB challenge team is just a group of friends who follow Lydia at Understandblue (thus the name) and use her different technique as challenges.
To create this card, I started with a white top folding card base and some patterned paper.
I used the Magic Color Slider Die by Lawn Fawn to make the slider portion of my card.
