The Paper Players: PP407 - A Sketch Challenge



Today I have a card I created for the Paper Players Sketch Challenge #PP407. Working with the sketch I decided to emboss a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, 3 1/4" x 4 1/2", with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I added some Crumb Cake Ink to the folder first by drawing the Ink Pad over the flat portion of the folder.  Then I cut the piece according to the sketch.
I popped them up onto the Early Espresso Card Front, 4" x 5 1/4", with Dimensionals. I love how that turned out. One of my favorite sets coming out in the 2018 Holiday Catalog is Still Night. The dies that go with it are the Night Owl Thinlits. When you purchase the two together as a bundle you save 10%. The owls are so sweet, and the tree branch is just the perfect size for him to perch on.  I have also used some elements from the Blended Seasons bundle that is a limited time product (only available during the month of August, or while supplies last). The Vellum stitched label, 3" x 4 1/4", is from this bundle and it worked out so well. It created a little separation from the background and allowed the Owl and the tree branch to stand out a little more. I colored the smallest Leaves from the Blended seasons and the Owl, 1 1/2" x 2 1/2", with our Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. The Sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings. The border stamp comes from Happy Birthday Gorgeous. Then I used the Classic Label Punch to cut it out. It too was popped up with Mini Dimensionals onto the card. The Inside Layer Is Whisper White Cardstock. I stamped the tree branch from the Still Night set in Crumb Cake Ink. The Sentiment is from Spooky Sweets and is stamped in Basic Black. I added a couple of the Blended Seasons Leaves to this layer too.

Update:

Than You Claire, for choosing my card. It's so nice to have your efforts appreciated by such talented individuals!

Reminders: Bonus Days, Blended Seasons Bundle and the Watercolor Pencils are only available until August 31st.

Beautiful Baubles Gift Card Holder & PCC304: Fancy Fold Theme Challenge



Good evening,

I was trying to think if this is my 1st project from the new Holiday Catalog? I think it is. I know I am behind myself. My summer has been so busy. Be that as it may, I am here now. Once again I have a Holiday Gift Card Holder to share. I swear that when I see new products, the 1st thing I look for is if there is a stamp set calling my name. It will tell me if I can get a Gift Card Holder out of it. I am still in love with this design because it fits the standard A2 envelope. I make use of these myself. I have family living in another state and shipping costs are ridiculous these days.


I have entered this into the Paper Craft Crew Challenge for this week, which is a Fancy Fold Theme Challenge.
I'll start with the Card Holder details, then I will post the video. The shopping list will be last in line with a reminder or two before that.

Details:
Stamps: Beautiful Baubles
Card Base: Pool Party Cardstock - 4 1/4" x 11'', Scoed at 5 1/2" & 9".
Card Front Mat: Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper - 2 Pieces, 1@ 4" x 3 1/4" & 1@ 4" x 1 3/4".
Card Front : Whisper White Cardstock - 2 3/4" x 3 1/2"
Inside Layer: Whisper White Cardstock - 4" x 5 1/4"
Sentiment Banner: Whisper White Cardstock - 5/8" x 2 3/4"
Sentiment Banner Mat: Copper Foil - 3/ 4" x 3"
Envelope Flap Cover: Joyous Noel SDSP - 2 1/4" x 6"

I used my Stamparatus to stamp most of the elements on this Card Holder. I find it makes most of my stamping so much easier. I started by stamping the "Deck the Halls" in Tranquil Tide Ink on the top of the Card Front. Then I stamped the Baubles below that with VersaMark Ink. I did use the Stampin' Buddy before stamping to keep the Static away from the Ink. I Sprinkled Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder on top of the VersaMarked image. I then heat embossed the image with my Heat Tool.  I stamped the Inside Layer sentiment next with Tranquil Tide. Then I stamped the Sparkles on the Inside Layer with Pool Party. The Sentiment on the Sentiment Banner is Stamped with Tranquil Tide. I colored 2 of the ornaments with a Light Pool Party Stampin' Blends Marker and shaded these ornaments with a Dark Pool Party Stampin' Blends Marker.

2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop: Water




Welcome to the August Kre8tors Blog Hop!

This months theme is Water. I chose the Lilypad Lake set to show my water elements. I stamped the Crane, Sun, and Water Lilies on Shimmery White Cardstock. Using my Aqua Painter and a couple of the new In Colors ( Lovely Lipstick & Call Me Clover) I colored the Water Lilies. I shaded the crane with Smokey Slate. The sun is Pineapple Punch. I used Pacific Point and the Aqua Painter to add a color wash to the lower half of the Card Front. The Tall Grasses are cut from Call Me Clover Cardstock. All of the Dies used are from the co ordinating Lakeside Framelits. My Card Front Mat is Pacific Blue mounted onto a Thick Whisper White Card Base.
