Winnie & Walter Plus

Today is another overload post of cards. [This should be it for overload ;)] -- I went on to play in some more challenges yesterday for World Card Making Day, (while DH watched football.)

It all started with the Winnie&Walter list of challenges, then, I joined in a few other challenges along the way.  The plus to this post, W&W had separate Iin-linkz (SUPER YAY!)

Ready?  Here we go; Starting with the stamp room disaster;

BASIS:  I started with what Shay called a *masterboard for my background.  I used an 8.5 x 11 sheet of water colored paper, and using my [so favorite] Dylusional Ink Sprays [Fresh Lime and Lemon Zest], I sprayed the entire sheet. [Have I mentioned how much I LOVE these sprays!] Once the sheet was dry, I cut it down for my card panels and started creating.

Challenge 1 - Water Color with Vanessa

I used a paintbrush to sprinkle water onto the panel, and used a paper towel to blot it off.  I love using water color like this - a fun effect.  I used Avery Elle Petals & Stems, along with Gina K Designs, Great Sayings [retired].

Challenge 2- Color Challenge with Heather; aqua, mint, yellow and kraft.

Using the *masterboard, I did some Bokeh effect.  The shadow behind the happy (Avery Elle; Simply Said) was kraft, but I used too much white pigment on it - oops.  I used my Hero Arts Palm Die, and my label maker for the birthday.

Challenge 3 - Sketch with Gayatri
I looked at my stash, and was thrilled to find the perfect stickers to use with this sketch!

See what I mean?  Perfect!  I put EWW as the sentiment in purple metallic paper, but that didn't even come close to photographing right!

Challenge 4 -  Metallic/ Gold with Lydia

I just used one of the cut panels from the *masterboard for this card, while adding some washi tape at the bottom, and some sponged shell dies I also had in my stash.  My gold Thank You is from Avery Elle Many Thanks, using Ranger Metallic Gold Embossing Powder.

With this *masterboard panel, I used a new Darcie Fall Leaf Embossing Folder I just got.  Awesome embossing, nice and deep.  I used an image from Inspired By Stamping; Masculine Tags, along with a sentiment from Avery Elle; Laurels.  I'll be sending a package to my son and will be including this card.

While you can't see the actual partial I did, I did use this technique.  I used Hero Arts Real Leaves, along with some images from Basic Grey; Indian Summer Fauna Stamps. Since  this is a Fall card, it qualifies for a few challenges; A2Z Scrapbooking; Fall using Hero Arts, The Male Room; Fall and the colors from The Color Throwdown.

Challenge 7 - Masterboard with Shay  While some of my first cards (in this post) used a masterboard,  I wanted separate cards for each challenge, so I made another one.  Again, I used Dylusions Ink Spray, this time only using one color; Crushed Grape. I have to say, I am not a fan of purple, but WOW I love this shade a lot!

Okay - this is the final W&W challenge. Whew - craziness huh? :)  Rather then separate photos, I just have this one, and I will just describe what I did.  Vampire; I used Gold Perfect Pearls mixed with water on my worksheet, and ran the panel through it.  The Mummy, I used the water sprinkle technique as described from the first challenge.  The Flower, I die cut out the flower [Die-namites, Rosy Rose] from the masterboard, and then inlaid it with the gold pieces.  The sentiment is from an OOB company.  The Bat, I just added washi tape and left the panel alone.  My Halloween figures are stickers that I found in my stash.  My Halloween cards qualify for The Paper Player's Challenge; Halloween

I had an amazing crafty week end!  Thanks to all the challenges, and you all for your encouraging comments! I do love this hobby :)

Overload of Sandy Allnock's 7 Day On-Line Class

Warning - you are about to be overloaded on cards - hey it's World Card Making Day right? ;)  I got behind with Sandy Allnock's FREE on-line class so, I took my morning [into afternoon] to finish the 5 classes I missed. Sandy used lots of fun products, I used what I had.

Are you ready?  Here we go...

Day 3 - making a gold papers.  Sandy used Ferro, I used Gold Perfect Pearls.  I sprinkled some perfect pearls on my worksheet, added water, and dragged my water color paper panel through it.

Using my Viva Inka Gold Gold, I covered the Tim Holtz Reindeer Flight die cut, along with the edges of my card base.  My mc is from Poppy Stamps.

Day 4 - Liquid Gold Water Coloring.  I used my Gold Smooch Accent Ink.

I used the gold background technique on this and added some Dylusions Calypso Teal Ink Spray so it would help to balance out the color on the card.  I used the fun critters from Hero Arts Happy Day Animals. I also colored the bird with my gold smooch.

Day 5 - Sandy used Pearl Pens.  I actually have these, but tried her tree coloring instead.

 Yeah, Sandy's was better, but I tried.  I used the fun Inspired By Stamping set; Winter Friends, and the lights from Festive Greetings.

Day 6 - She used Shiny Beeswax.  I used some Claudine Hellmuth Sticky Backed Canvas I had.  We were also suppose to make a round card.

I used more images from Winter Friends [they are just so cute].  I like the texture the canvas gives the stenciled star background. I also loved Sandy's hint of cutting a tiny piece of the back of the card base off so your round card stands up!  What a duh moment for me! :)

Finally, my favorite out of all my cards, and the last class, Day 7 - Gold Brush Pens.  I used gold embossing [instead], and used her shaker card idea and layout.

I used my Fuse Tool to make the shaker holder.  I embossed my fern, and yes, it kind of melted the sheet protector that I used for the holder, but I like the effect. My mc is from Clearly Besotted.

That's it for me!  I can tell if I do "classes" again, I will keep up.  Sorry if I overloaded you all with all my cards.  I wish I could upload these individually in the in-linkz [right] but I can't.  I will be uploading Day 7 - my favorite.

Thanks Sandy for the classes, the videos, the hints, and the potential prizes!  
Off to comment on my fellow players~

Lots of Challenges!

I love the beginning of the month.  There are always so many fun challenges, and I seem to have time to create for them!

My new addiction the last couple of weeks are the Dylusion inks! I just love the vivid color I get.  For this card I used Vibrant Turquoise and Calypso Teal, sprayed over an inked sky panel.  I used a couple of masks before spraying for a shadow effect.  I used the Hero Arts Palm mask as my focal image after I brushed it with Metallic Gold Perfect Pearls

While I only made one card, I was able to enter it into 4 challenges;  Fab Friday 74, Pinterest Inspired October, CAS Colour & Sketch 144, 4 Crafty Chicks; washi tape, and finally, Virginia's #19 October; color 

Thanks challenges - I had a great time~

National Coffee Day - Fall Coffee Hop


It is National Coffee Day today.   What better time to have another Fall Coffee Hop card.

While commenting on the hop entries, I came across this fabulous free cut download from 17 Turtles - Juliana Michaels.  How fun is this!!  I adore the font of the sentiment and naturally, the cup.  I used my Fuse Tool to make the circular shaker portion, which qualifies me to enter this into the September a2z Scrapbooking Challenge; a shaker with a Hero Arts image. See the stamping on the cup? I used Hero Arts CL351 - Friends for the Fall flowers.

Have you joined in with the rest of us [there is a lot] in playing in the Fall Coffee Hop? There sure is a ton of inspiration going on!
