Planted in my Heart

Hiya!!

I'm here with my second card for Papertrey Ink's Stamp A Faire 2016. This card is for the Master Color Recipes, I picked the White Center, Mark Rothko colors to use on my card.

I started with the Garden Variety and Garden Variety II stamp sets. I pulled all the colors in the recipe True Black, Terracotta Tile, Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise, Raspberry Fizz. For the leaves I pulled out Ripe Avocado.

For all my stamping (except for a couple flowers I stamped automatically) I did second generation stamping. I wanted a lighter, almost distress look to it and stamping with full strength ink would be too bright.

Once all my stamping was done I added a the sentiment to the card with full strength True Black ink. For a ground I scribbled Vintage Photo Distress Marker on a clear block and added it with a paint brush and water to my card.

The card stock is not water color paper, so you get a kind of streaky, blotchy look to it, which I don't mind, I think it helps it look more real! I also added a few darker areas with the fine tip of the marker while the paper was still wet. Last I added a few sequins, then folded my card so my card is actually a one layer card!

Thanks for stopping by!!

The Great Outdoors

Hello!!

I'm stopping real quick to share a card I made this morning for Papertrey Ink's Stamp A Faire 2016. I wasn't sure I would be playing along this year, its been super hot and humid and we don't have air conditioning because it usually doesn't stay this hot this long. This morning some rain came in and cooled it off for a little bit (its now really humid!!) and I was able to make two card for two different challenges.

This card is for the Starry Night challenge. I started with a panel of water color and I used Black Soot and Spun Sugar Distress Paint to make my Starry Night background.

While it was drying I stamped the tent, fire and three pine trees from PTI's Summer Camp stamp set. I used a few Spectrum Noir markers to color the tent and fire, CR2, EB6, OR2, OR3, PP1. With Ripe Avocado ink I stamped the pine trees three times. Then I fussy cut them all out.

When my background was dry I added a strip of Kraft card stock along the bottom and stamped The Great Outdoors sentiment to the right. I added the trees, fire and tent with foam tape. Last I used my Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen to add starry dots, but unfortunately I couldn't get a good photo, so you can't see the nice sparkle the background has!!

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back in a few with my second card for the Stamp A Faire!

Make Amazing Happen

Hello!!

I'm stopping by with a card I made a week ago or so! I was looking through the stamps I haven't used yet and decided to give some love to a couple Richard Garay stamps!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamp - Richard Garay
I started by die cutting a stitched rectangle from some watercolor card stock. Next I inked up the flowers the Amazing Blooms set with a few Distress Inks and a spritz or two of water. I started with Rusty Hinge but I wanted a brighter orange so I went with Spiced Marmalade for the remaining orange flowers. I added a few more flowers with Picked Raspberry and used Peeled Paint with the leaves.

When the stamping was dry I mixed a little bit of Black Soot with water and flicked droplets all over the panel. Once that too was dry I stamped the sentiment from the Make Amazing set.

To add a little sparkle to the card I added a few sequins. Last I just added the panel to a black card base.

I'm on the Art Impressions blog today with a card featuring the new Turtle Stackers and Slider Die! These turtles are so cute and are perfect for any turtle lover out there!! For my card I made it appropriate for a younger boy!

I started with some pattern papers from Elle's Studio - Cameron Collection and used the Slider Die to cut some star paper. On white card stock I stamped the stack of turtles and colored them with my Spectrum Noir Markers. I used CG2, DG2, DG3, GB4, GB6, OR1.

I trimmed the turtles and made a little cover up, then adhered the slider around the turtles. Next I trimmed some pattern paper to fit a chard base. I cut a white circle die and then stamped the matching sentiment.

I added the slider to my card with adhesive and then added the sentiment circle with foam tape. From the Elle's Studio Cameron collection I added a Thumbs Up sentiment circle. Last I added a couple colorful buttons.

Art Impressions Challenge #188

Hello!

It's the second week of Art Impression Challenge #188 - Anything Goes! The challenge also celebrates AI's 29th anniversary!! I hope you will play along with us!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Art Impressions
Because of the 29th anniversary I wanted to incorporate 29 on my card and decided to create a background. I pulled out some large number dies and cut them a few times from white card stock. I made three rows of the numbers 29 and adhered them to a white card base, trimming off the over hang.

Next I stamped the image from the Giant Cake Set and colored it with my Spectrum Noir Markers. I used BP4, BP6, BT2, BT4, CT2, CT4, EB5, EB6, EB8, DR1, DR5, FS2, FS3, GB8, HB2, HB3, IG4, IG6, IG8, IG10, JG2, OR2, OR3, TB6, TB7, TN7, TN8. Then I fussy cut out the image.

I cut a strip of black card stock and white embossed the sentiment from the Happy 29th Wood Stamp available from Hobby Lobby. With scotch tape I masked off bottom part of the sentiment. I added this strip across the card base and then added the image with foam tape.
