Simon Says Monday Challenge

Gosh, it seems like for.ev.er since I have played in the Simon Says Challenges.  This past Monday's Challenge - ATC Cards - was perfect for me to step out of my usual card making.

Usually, multi media is a challenge in itself for me, but when making Artist Trading Cards, I think the 2 go together quite well.  Thankfully, I found a video HERE that really helped me immensely!  I love that these started out as a full page, and then cut down to get 6 semi matching ATC's.  All that layering and gorgeous color together - yeah, I had a great day playing!  I did use a couple of Simon Says Dies; Circle Loops and Quadrangle Frames.

So good in fact, I went on to make more!
These were done separately, and I used actual playing cards for the base.  [The perfect size BTW].  All my sentiments I did on my computer and just used different fonts.  [Just another hint that I picked up watching videos.]

Thanks Simon Says -- I really had a blast creating these ATC's!

Dare 2B Artzy Day

It's my day over on the Dare 2B Artzy blog. I am showing the following card;

I sponged my background with oxide inks [so awesome!], and then stamped the flowers from Playful Posies Layered.  I cut out a circle, and added in a border, and adhered the fun new Thanks Layer die.
Did you know that D2BA carries ink?  Yes, yes they do, and all inks used on this card are from their collection!  I highly recommend them - the Totally Black is amazing!






What do you think? ;)

and a sentiment for the amazing man my son has become! :)  I used the CUTplorations Fabulous Word Die.

STAMPlorations Final Christmas Release Day - Day 5



Wow!  What a week right?  Super fun samples and for the last day 5, it was my favorite.  I really enjoy using dies - word, images - they make card creating so easy when you need a "quick" card.  Today I am showcasing; Christmas Baubles #2, Christmas Tree #1, Nativity, and Merry Christmas Word Art.  Yes, that is a lot, but this release is HUGE, and I only have a portion I'm sharing.  [Hence me sending you over to the blog to see all the other creations.]


The sentiments I used on the above 2 cards is from Merry.  What a fabulous set of sentiments, along with beautiful fonts.  I love a good font!
I used the Christmas Trees Stencil on this fun one :).







Okay, that is it for me with this awesome Christmas Release.  Leave a comment, and then pop on over to the STAMPlorations Blog and check out what the rest of the Team made.

Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes


 

It's Seize the Birthday time.  These next couple of weeks is Anything Goes.  Remember though, it must be a birthday card.

I was inspired by a card I saw [and didn't save] on Pinterest. I stenciled the background [ARTplorations Shutter Stencil], and used a Cheery Lynn Large Exotic Butterfly die for the cut out.  Added sequins and beads, puffy taped the top layer to the stenciled layer, and adhered all onto a card base.  I do adore the bright colors on this card.  I'm thinking my friend will love this one.

Your turn - just pop that birthday card into the Seize the Birthday gallery, and you will be good to go.
How easy is that?

STAMPlorations Christmas Release - Day 2



Day 2 today for the STAMPlorations Christmas Release.  Today, we are focusing on Deepti's new set; Yuletide Deer.  This guy is pretty awesome!


I saw a photo on Pinterest that inspired this CAS water color.  While easy, it still packs a wow [I think].  Color up the stamp, lightly spritz with water, and stamp.
