Yet Another Timeless Tag

Supplies: Paper: Gina K black and white cardstock, yellow is Bazzill  Accessories: Timeless Tags Thinlits, scallop oval nestabilities, swiss dots embossing folder, dimensionals

The Paper Players challenge this week is a color challenge: Black, white, plus any color you choose.  I kept with my clean and simple style, and used the Timeless Tags again for my focal image.  I discovered that the scalloped oval nestabilities frame the Timeless Tags pretty closely and added this to my tag.  I added some texture with the swiss dots embossing folder and a little more black as a background to my white panel.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Have an Ice Day!

Supplies: Stamps: Inky Antics  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Paper: Gina K heavy base white  Accessories: gingham ribbon, copic markers, Sizzix tag thinlits, liquid applique, glossy accents
The CAS challenge on SCS is "Freeze."  This penguin image came to my mind right away.  I had picked this up with the matching sentiment at a craft rummage, and of course have never used it! ;)  Our hobby is so much about the shopping isn't it?!  
I added the embossed tag to make it look like the entrance to an igloo.  It is hard to see in the picture but I added glossy accents to the ice and the drink the penguin is holding.  Lastly, I added some liquid applique to make his pom pom extra fluffy!

Just a Note

Supplies: Stamps: Flourishing Phrases  Ink: Archival Black ink  Paper: Gina K white heavy base weight and navy  Accessories: Tim Holtz thinlits and white gel pen

This week's featured stamper on SCS is Twila.  I chose this card to case.   I kept the same layout and color scheme.  I used a die cut in place of a stamped image, and I used a white gel pen to match the white embossing on Twila's card.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Another Try

Supplies: Stamps: Stylized Birthday  Paper: Affectionately Yours, navy and white cardstock  Ink: Memento paris dusk  Accessories: ribbon, circle nestabilities 

I wanted to give the SCS sketch another try since my last card was so hard to photograph.  I used another dp from the affectionately yours paper pack and paired it with the same stylized birthday greeting.  That's all for now, thanks for stopping by!

Coppery Birthday

Supplies: Stamps: Stylized Birthday  Paper: Affectionately Yours, white cardstock  Ink: Versamark  Accessories: copper embossing powder, circle nestabilities, white sheer ribbon

I have to apologize for the picture of this card.  It is really hard to photograph a card when it has foiled paper on it!   The colors all look really off, but I assure you they are all coppery.  I didn't have any copper foil paper for behind the birthday greeting, so I made my own using the copper embossing powder I used on the greeting.
I made this card using the sketch challenge on SCS.

Coffee Anyone?

 Supplies: Stamps: Amuse and Lawn Fawn  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Paper: Gina K Heavy base weight white cardstock  Accessories: copic markers, ribbon, score pal, clear wink of stella marker, glossy accents
The CAS challenge on SCS today is "hot beverage."  I can't imagine starting my day without a cup of coffee, and I love this coffee to go mug stamp.  I added a heart from the Stinkin' Cute stamp set by Lawn Fawn to these coffee cups, applied clear wink of stella to the hearts, and then glossy accents on top.  I scored two lines above and below the ribbon to add some dimension.

Supplies: Stamps: Amuse coffee mug, sentiment ? I bought it at a craft rummage  Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Versamark, Tim Holtz distress inks  Paper: Old Olive and Tim Holtz watercolor paper  Accessories: dimensionals and detail white embossing powder.

I couldn't resist, I had to make another card for this challenge.  I watercolored the brown coffee background and then spritzed on some water to create the water splotches.  Then I stamped the coffee cup twice, cut them out and adhered one to the sentiment and popped the other one up next to it.  My sentiment was embossed on old olive cardstock to coordinate with the card base.  

Thank you for stopping by!

Birdie Birthday

Supplies: Stamps Mini Crazy Bird Set  Ink: Archival jet black, Versamark, Distress Inks: barn door, peacock feathers, and pumice stone  Paper: Tim Holtz watercolor paper, black cardstock by Gina K Accessories: detail white embossing powder, glossy accents, mini crazy bird die set, Tim Holtz birthday die cut, Tim Holtz dot fade stencil, white embossing paste, DCWV twine, paper piercer

Today's challenge on SCS is the Featured Stamper challenge, and the Featured Stamper is Pam.  I chose to CASE this card, and made the following changes: I used one layer for the card base, distress ink and embossing paste to create the "patterned" paper, and I used one layer for my die cut word.  This isn't my typical CAS card, it took me forever!  But it was fun to use so many different products on one card.  I added glossy accents to the balloon and the birthday word die cut.  To make it look like the bird was holding the balloon string I pierced a hole above and below his wing to thread the baker's twine through. And I love the texture that the embossing paste adds to the watercolored background.
