Today I’ll be sharing this card for PaperTemptress’s FB Challenge for November, sponsored by The Stamping Boutique. Ill leave the link for this image in the descriptions below, if you’d like to check it out. Be sure to check out the PaperTemptress’s FB page and participate in this challenge for a chance to win some awesome prizes. Each month will have a different theme and the theme for November is No Green and Red colors. I printed the Cardinal (digital) image, onto some watercolor paper and colored it in using a Blender pen. I personally love this technique, because you can use your Dye ink pads as watercolor medium. You can also use them with watercolor pencils and markers. I colored the Cardinal in a burgundy color, since we can’t use the color red. I also used the Neenah Natural Linen card stocks from Papertemptress. This has a fantastic texture and I really wanted to showcase the texture on this card stock using some Brusho’s. Even though this card stock is not a watercolor paper, it was able to hole up to a lot of water. Pretty cool!! Love them ❤ Check out the video, to see the Brushos on the Linen card stock. I’ll leave the links to both the Papertempress’s FB page as well as The Stamping Boutique. I hope you’ll join us for this challenge and check out the Papertemptres’s Blog for all the Fabulous Designers inspirations. Thank you so much for stopping by and I’ll catch you next time. Thanks again 🙂
Today I’m making a card for the Lawnscaping Challenge, which is to use Sentiments. I wanted to use the Faber-Castell Metallic pencils on black card stock, so that the metallic will show up better. I went ahead and stamped one of the sentiments from the Lawn Fawn’s Chitchat stamp set and embossed it using white embossing powder. I then colored in the speech bubble randomly using 4 of the metallic pencils. I used Gold, Silver, Pink, and Blue. I think the metallic shows up really nicely on Black card stock. These pencils are not water-soluble like the Derwent metallic pencils. I believe these are wax based. These are student grade pencils and I think they don’t have as much metallic as the Derwent but it’s ok for techniques like this. No blending but just coloring in the image. I hope you enjoyed this card and please subscribe and follow for more inspiration and ideas. Thanks again 🙂
Today I made a card for the Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge and the theme for this challenge was Halloween. I don’t think I own any of the Newton’s Nook’s designs Halloween stamp set or if I have them, I forgot where I put them, lol. It’s crazy how things get lost in my craft room, lol.
Anyways, I needed to create a Halloween theme card so I decided to use this turtle from the In Slow Motion Stamp set and created my own Halloween theme. I don’t have a video for this card because I was really sick the whole last week. This just came about as I was sitting in bed, just coloring random stamps. Initially I wanted to create a Birthday card with this, since the turtle actually has a present tied to his shell. I came up with 2 cards, almost the same design. One is a birthday card and the other being this Halloween card. I’ll share the other card in another time.
I went ahead and stamped out 3 turtles onto Neenah Solar White card stock from Paper Temptress. One on top of the other, masking the present on his shell, except for the top turtle. He has a present on his back but I attached a velvet bat on the present instead. I wanted this to be a Halloween card so I went ahead and stamped out one of the party hats from the same stamp set. I stamped it out very lightly so that I can draw in the bottom of the hat, making it into a witches hat. I colored it black and it fit perfectly on the turtle. I then stamped out couple of the candy bags from the Lawn Fawn’s stamp sets, which also fit in the turtles mouth perfectly. I cut the mouth of the turtle with my exacto knife and also cut a slit on the top of the bags, so that it can fit inside the turtles mouth. Super cute, right? I stamped out the sentiment from the same In Slow Motion set that says Shell-abrate! Super cleaver sentiment! I also stamped out underneath of the Shell-abrate using a Stampin Up’s stamp. I colored all the turtles using my Shinhan Touch Twin alcohol markers, which I use pretty regularly and it blends beautifully on this Neenah card stock. I love these markers ❤ I also found some small candies, from another Lawn Fawn’s stamp set and attached it to the other 2 turtles.
I used Dusty concord and Black soot distress inks to ink up this panel and I used this K&C Halloween pattern paper, along with the Paper Temptress Mango card stock as well as Neenah Solar White. I LOVE the Paper Temptress card stocks, so I think that will be the only card stock I’ll be using from now on 🙂 I then attached the whole panel to an A2 size card front and added some sequins to match the orange card stock. I attached some velvet bat’s to give more interest to this card. I also used my Signo white gel pen as well as glossy accents on the turtle and the shells. I hope you like this card and if you do, please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas. Click the link below to participate in the Inky Paws Challenge, for a chance to win a prize! Also, check out Paper Temptress for all of these yummy card stocks ❤ Yay! Thank you so much for stopping by and I’ll catch you guys next time 🙂
Today I’m making a DT card for Tupelo Designs LLC and I’m also using some Lawn Fawn stamps for the Lawnscaping back to school challenge. I’m super excited that Tupelo Designs LLC is now carrying Lawn Fawn along with other brands of products that I love. I’ve used the Love you tons stamp set and colored the elephant with copic markers. I also used some of the other Lawn Fawn stamps just match the School theme.
By the time you see this, the challenge will probably be over and they’ll have a New challenge for you to play along.

Today I made a card for Through The Craft Room Door’s Anything goes Challenge of the week of August 4th, sponsored by Paper Temptress. Paper Temptress carries the most Beautiful, High quality paper for all your paper crafting needs. I was very impressed with the Quality and the card stocks, and I had a hard time choosing which ones I was going to use for this card. I’ve worked with many different Types and brands of card stocks but these card stocks blew me away. The beauty of the shimmer and shine is absolutely Gorgeous!!
I kind of go over and share some of these card stocks, just so that you can get a visual of the shimmer and shine. I chose out 2 vellum pieces, which by the way are very thick and I chose 2 of the Screenprint design papers. This is the first time I’ve seen these Hambly Screenprint paper. I used a Hexagon punch from Stampin Up and punched out hexagons. I’m using them to make my own pattern paper so I can use several designs at the same time. I finish off with a gold thread and some gold translucent sequins, just to give a little more interest. I have a full tutorial of the process up above if you’re interested. For all the supplies I used on this card and for more information, please visit the link below. Join us in this Awesome challenge to win some fabulous prizes by the Paper Temptress. Thank you so much for stopping by and I’ll catch you guys next time. Thanks again
Today I’m making a card for Your Next Stamp’s Sketch Challenge #18. I put the picture of the sketch up above and this is what I came up with. I’ll put the link of the challenge below if you want to participate in this challenge. I decided to use this Silly Monster stamp set, I adore these monsters on this stamp. They are super cute!! I decided to use 1 of the monsters with the multiple eyes and I wanted to make a border of the sentiment, All eyes on you.. on both sides of this rectangle panel. I cut the stitched rectangle out using the Lawn Fawn’s Large stitch rectangle die, which will cover the entire front of my A2 size card base. I marked a link down on both sides using my pencils and used my Misti to stamp the sentiment all along the side. I stamped each sentiment couple times using Momento Tuxedo black ink pad. Misti is a great tool when you want to line things up or stamp it multiple times. I also stamped out the monster using the same ink pad and colored it using my Shinhan Touch Brush markers. I cut a blue design paper slightly smaller on the sides so that we can see the sentiments that was stamped along the side. I have a full video tutorial up above if you want to see the step by step on how I created this card. I wanted to add goggly eyes on this monster, and I originally wanted the eye balls in all different color but they were too big. So instead, I added 2 color googly eyes and 2 small black googly eyes. I had a lot of fun making this card and I’ll definitely be using this stamp set again in the near future. I’ll also link all the supplies I used on this card below for you to check out. I thank you guys so much for stopping by and I’ll see you guys back next time. Please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas. Thanks again
