Featured Stamper Hello!

Supplies: Paper: Gina K white, Stampin up pink and blue  Accessories: Cuttlebug embossing folder, Memory Box die cut,  Cool Cuts die cut, and Spellbinders die cut, glossy accents, gem, dimensionals

Hello Stampers!  I made a card for the featured stamper challenge on SCS.  The featured stamper is Donna, she has a wonderful gallery.  I chose this card to C.A.S.E.  I was inspired by the cherry blossom flowers and colors of this card.  I chose to use a wavy embossing folder because I thought it looked like the waves on Donna's card.  I used the Memory Box die cut to go with the cherry blossom flowers on Donna's card, and I die cut the hello in blue to go with the colors of the waves on Donna's card.

Hats Off!

Supplies: Stamps: Whipper Snapper Penguin on Ice  Ink: Memento tuxedo black Paper: Gina K heavy base weight and artist's choice white cardstock, Gina K black onyx, Lawn Fawn 6x6 Peace Joy Love  Accessories: copic markers

This week's CAS challenge on SCS is Hats Off.  I found this cute little penguin with a Santa hat on, and decided to use this as my focal image.  I colored the focal image with copic markers and die cut it into a circle and matted it with black paper.  I decided to use some Christmas lights patterned paper to coordinate with the penguin's tangled lights.

Dazzling Dahlia

Supplies: Stamps: Gina K Dazzling Dahlias  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Paper: Daffodil Delight, Black Onyx, white, and Tim Holtz watercolor paper  Accessories: Zig Clean Color brush markers, score buddy, swiss dots embossing folder
When I haven't stamped in awhile I will look through card samples that I have saved on Pinterest and copy them to get my mojo flowing again.  That is exactly what I did with this card.  This is a card made by Gina K, she has a video tutorial here that I followed to make this card.  This is my first card using the Zig Clean Color brush markers, they definitely have a learning curve.  I found that I had to blend the two colors together right away to get a smooth blend, and sometimes I needed to use some water on a paint brush to smooth things out also.  I got the hang of it after awhile.  Check out Gina's video, it is a great tutorial!  

Thanks for stopping by!!

Featured Stamper Birthday Wishes

Supplies: Stamps: Gina K Dazzling Dahlia and Wild Blossom  Ink: Versamark  Paper: Gina K: green, yellow, and white, and Tim Holtz watercolor paper  Accessories detail white embossing powder, Clean Color brush markers, gingham ribbon, linen thread, SU border punch, Gina K Decorative tag set, dimensionals, swiss dot embossing folder

Sunday brings us the featured stamper challenge on SCS.  This week the featured stamper is Nan Cee.  She has such a pretty gallery be sure to take a look!  I chose this card to CASE.  I kept a lot of the elements the same as her card.  A couple of changes include: embossed sentiment, added a tag behind my flower, and I didn't stamp on my green layer so I could add my sentiment.  

This card had me dabbling at using my Zig Clean Color brush markers.  I followed a tutorial that Gina included on Stamp TV.  As I used them I got more used to them, and started to get the blending the way I wanted it.  I have a lot more practice ahead of me with these brush markers.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you all have a safe and wonderful New Year!!!
