Celebrate You

Hello everyone.
Today I am sharing with you the card I made using the current challenge from Tic Tac Toe. These challenges are always really fun to create with as they combine 3 different elements.

For my choice I went down the left-hand side of the panel – Stencil, Splatters, and Foliage. The stencil and foliage part of the design came as one element thanks to the Leaves Stencil from Paper Rose Studio and 2 Distress Inks – Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive. I used Wilted Violet Distress Ink on the edge of a clear block with water and a brush for the splatters.

The brushed gold circles are from a Stitched Holly Die set from Paper Rose Studio. I don’t use the holly leaves much but these berry ones do get a workout. The celebrate word die comes with both the word and the layering die as well – the word is cut from black cardstock which I put adhesive on before cutting to make layering easier later. I used a pale purple cardstock for this but my camera didn’t pick it up well. The sentiment strip came from the Black & White Sentiment Sheets from Paper Rose Studio. These are wonderful to pair with the many sentiment dies. Once everything was placed onto the card front this was layered onto a panel of the same pale purple cardstock as the die.

I had a lot of fun finding out how to put these elements together and I hope that you like how it finally came together. I will be entering this card into 2 challenges. Tic Tac Toe no.180 and Paper Rose Studio Monthly Challenge for Creatives.

Until my next post,

Stay Unique

Hello Everyone,
I loved the combination of the challenges from my previous post that I actually made a 2nd card to share with you all.

I used the same line again as well which was Animal(s) & Friendship Sentiment & Dry Embossing/Scoring.

The 2 pieces of patterned paper are from the same paper pad as my previous card as well but you would think that they weren’t with them being so different. This time though I cut a piece of Lavendar lightweight cardstock to just a bit bigger than the card front and ran this through my Gemini Jnr using an embossing folder. I wanted the design to stand out a little more so I used a large ink blending foam and some Sweet Plum Memento Ink. I also used this ink to stamp the sentiment from the same stamp set as the unicorn. The unicorn I stamped with Black Hybrid Ink from My Favorite Things as this ink allows me to colour with either Copics or Pencils. In this case, I used my Copic markers.

When putting this card together I did add paper shims under a lot of the elements just to help it all stick and stay level on top of the embossed panel. For the embossed panel, I used some wider double-sided tape to make sure I had enough contact points with the mat layer. Once I had all of the elements together I add some gold circle holographic stickers from my stash just to finish off the card.

Thanks for stopping in to look at my card using the 2 challenges together again. Before you leave my blog I would love to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Just For You

Hello Everyone.
I am making cards for a charity and they have asked for some general cards so I have been using more general sentiments. This card was made by combining 2 challenges.

For my card making, I went with Dry Emboss/Scoring & Friendship Sentiment & Animal(s).

I scored some of the ombre paper from the paper pad that I am working through at the moment with a scoring tool and a ruler. Unfortunately, my ruler slipped but I still used the piece as this was the last piece of this paper. The sentiment arrow is one that was included in the paper pad. I found this cute little butterfly sticker in my stash and it was a great size for the circle element. I added some gold circle holographic stickers to finish off the design.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card design that combined two challenges together. Before you leave my blog I would love to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Until my next post,
