Warm Wishes With New Alley Way Stamps

Hello again!  I'm back sharing an icy little card that I've made using two new sets called: Mistletoe Kisses and this month's freebie with $40 purchase Chilly.  To create this card I started by stamping my little snowman first, masked him and stamped the ice next, so it would look just like he was sitting in the middle of it.  I then used my Copics and fussy cut lots and lots.  Now the background dots are from an older set called: Wreathed in Love.

I am also entering this little guy into the World Cardmaking Day Challenge at Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by again!  Have an amazing day!

Oh, and Happy Crafting hehehe!

Fangtastic Halloween

Hello, hello!  I'm popping in with a fun Halloween card that I've created for the new Anything Goes Challenge at, using the cute new Halloween Kids Clear Stamp Set...

Isn't he so fun?!  And he was so fun to color in too!  I started by stamping him onto my white cardstock and colored him in with Copics.  I then masked him and added the negative diecut of an oval and went over it with Distress inks.  I stamped the sentiments last before layering it with various panels of patterned papers.

Make it Work. - Tim Gunn

Hello!  So I am making it work with my last post for tonight... I have been itching to play with this Limited Edition Fashion Sense Stamp Set by PTI, and tonight was the night! woo hoo!  I had fun layering watercolors over my gold embossed image, and just played... it felt soooo good!  I was totally inspired by the Go For the Gold Classes that the amazing Ms. Sandy Allnock has been providing...

To create this card I started by stamping and embossing my images and sentiment with 24k Gold Embossing Powder from (this is my favorite embossing powder ever!  The shine in person is incredible!).  I then started layering watercolors from my Peerless Watercolor Set, after I would put down one layer of color I would dry it and put down another layer, and did this about four times until I was satisfied with the look.  If you look closely in the first photo you will see the gold shimmer in the watercoloring, that is because I added a touch of gold Perfect Pearls to my water inspired by Sandy's Day 4 Liquid Gold Class.  The sentiment on here really reminds me of my mom as she loves watching project runway... anywho, I then added a strip of gold glitter cardstock, and adhered it all to vellum before adding it to the cardbase.

I am also linking this beauty up to the Simon Says Stamp Linky Party and the Blitsy Wild Card Challenge, and the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Ombre as the dress goes from dark emerald green and fades out.

Thank you so much for stopping by it always makes my day!
Happy Crafting!

WCMD Challenges Galore!

Hello!  I'm linking up my second card today for lots of challenges yay!!!  Blitsy has lots of great challenges going on to celebrate World Card Making Day, so I am playing along with several of them including: watercoloring, shaker card, and wild card.  I am also joining in The Ton Stamps Challenge: Anything using The Ton Stamps!  Check it out...

To create this card I started by cutting out my star backing for the shaker out of watercolor paper, the star frame from a gorgeous DCWV Shimmer stack, and a final star from acetate.  I then used distress ink in Peacock to watercolor my backing star for the shaker element and set it to dry.  I then adhered the frame cut and acetate together, added some sequins from The Ton, and ta - da the star shaker was ready to go.  Next I stamped my sentiment from The Ton's Round Diamonds Stamp set as well as little stars from their Panda Can't Even stamp set onto a light grey cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by again and Happy Crafting!

Sending Hugs to The Ton Stamps

Hello!  Happy World Card Making Day!!!! Yay!!!  I finally get to play along this year, woot woot!  The first card I am sharing is based on The Ton's WCMD Challenge of Anything using The Ton Stamps.  I LOVE The Ton... Effie is truly a kind, sincere, and talented lady, and I've been a super fan of her and her products since their first release.  Ok, enough gushing and stamp crushing hehehe!  Here is the card I've created...

To create this card I started by creating the background by over laying edge diecuts in various cardstock colors.  Then I stamped my happy little panda from the Panda Can't Even stamp set and fussy cut him out.  I then popped him up with some foam adhesive.  I stamped my sentiment along the bottom from the same stamp set.  I then added some picked out gilding pieces from the Strawberries and Cream Couture Mix and Royal Garden Party Couture Mix as well as some heart confetti I had myself.

I am also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp World Card Making Day Link Up and the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge

The Hop to Stop

Hi!  I am so happy to be able to take part in The Hop to Stop as it is all about raising awareness and reminding us of the pains and horrors others may be facing. October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and this hop is designed to raise awareness about domestic violence, an issue that impacts 1 in 4 women, and the resources that are available to assist victims of domestic violence.  The color for raising awareness for this cause is purple, and I decided to focus my card on love...

I created this card by first laying some water onto my watercolor cardstock.  I then dropped in three different purples from my Peerless Watercolors, dried them and continued layering them.  Once it was fully dry I stamped my sentiment with Versafine Ink.  The hearts were created by heat embossing onto foil before diecutting the various hearts out.  I then popped some up with foam adhesive.  I then distressed the edges with a distressing tool.

I am also linking this card up with the Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes Challenge

To find out more about Domestic Violence and it's affects please visit the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence.  You will also find some statistics and facts about Domestic Violence by visiting this site too.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and make sure you hop along with us.  Full details on the hop can be found on The Damsel of Distressed Cards Blog.
