Papertrey’s Make It Monday: Deck Your Dies and Simon Says Wednesday: Anything Goes challenges

I made this card for Papertrey’s Make It Monday: Deck Your Dies and Simon Says Wednesday: Anything Goes challenges.  I was inspired by the pretty Recollections washi tape to make a pretty ornament die cut-out using Papertrey’s What the Doodle ornament die.  I opted to die-cut the image from a smokey shadow base and then attach it to a smokey slate card base so that the light grey peeked through the die cut-out.  I adorned the ornament with some rhinestones and a gold marker.  Supplies are listed below.  Happy crafting!

Papertrey’s Transformation Tuesday and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes

I was really not very happy with how my card for Betsy’s Make It Monday Papertrey masking and sponging challenge turned out and decided to give it another go for this week’s Papertrey Transformation Tuesday Challenge.  I am also entering my new card for this week’s Simon Says Wednesday Challenge:  Anything Goes.  Here’s last week’s card….yuck!

And here’s the transformed card with a similar layout but more layers and a wonderful alcohol ink background.  You never know how your alcohol ink panel is going to look but I like all the different colors of blues and aqua’s in this one.

Papertrey’s Make It Monday #305: Love of Layers and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes

I made this card inspired by the use of layers for Papertrey’s Make It Monday #305 challenge: Love of Layers and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge:  Anything Goes.   This card has several layers including the stencil/paste card panel, the die cuts, and ribbon.

Can I give a big shout out on both of the products I used on this card?  I love the clean simplicity of a monochromatic background using stencil paste and a great stencil.  My other favorite is Papertrey’s Spruce and Sprigs.  Love the graphic nature of this card!  Supplies are listed below.  Happy crafting!

Papertrey’s Make It Monday#343: Masking and Ink Sponging Challenge

Well, some techniques/cards you attempt but don’t master.  This card falls into this category.  I made the card for this week’s Papertrey Make It Monday #343 challenge – masking and ink sponging.  The difficulty with this technique is to make sure the color layers are distinctly different so the masked areas show up.  Mine didn’t so I ended up stamping all the snowflakes in white so they would show up.  Oh, well.  It’s always good to try a new technique.  Supplies are listed below.

My Favorite Things Sketch 412 Challenge Cards

I made two cards for this week’s My Favorite Things Sketch 412 Challenge.  Love how sketch challenges make you go outside your comfort zone when making a card.  I was initially stumped with the horizontal banners of Sketch 412, but decided to go back to my old standby, and used Washi tape to make them.  I am wanting more Christmas cards and had plenty of matching Washi tape to make the banners.  The Washi tape has some nice foil accents that are very pretty in real life.   I used My Favorite Things Happy Christmas die so I could keep the rest of the card simple since the washi tape is already pretty busy.   My second card makes use of the Happy Christmas die-cuts and used the washi tape to make vertical banners this time.  Happy crafting!  Supplies are listed below.

My Favorite Things Color Challenge 106 and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge – Baby It’s Cold Outside

I made a card using alcohol inks that combined this week’s My Favorite Things Color Challenge 106 and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge – Baby It’s Cold Outside.  The basis of the card was the color combination in MFT’s Color Challenge.  I decided to use alcohol inks to make the background.  I was a bit worried it was going to turn muddy using orange, green and brown together, but I was prepared to through the attempt in the garbage if it didn’t work.  You just never know until you try, right?  I used MFT’s geometric greenery for the stamped leaves and sentiment.  It was the first time I’ve embossed on Yupo paper.  It’s a bit of a challenge to get the embossing powder to melt but not warp the Yupo paper too bad.  Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!  Crafting supplies are listed below.
