Tulips - be true to yourself

Hello! I really liked the CAS sketch over at The Paper Players this week and decided to give it a go.


The tulip stamp is from Papertrey, Ink and colored with Copic's. I just used a circle die from Memory Box to cut a section of it out to use for the sketch.

Sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp and the striped black and white designer paper is from My Favorite Things.

I decided to keep this as CAS possible so that the tulips are center stage. Thanks for stopping in.

Tic-tac-toe challenge

It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week we were challenged to use the following Tic-Tac-Toe board to create with.


The bear is colored with Copic markers and then I used some rubbing alcohol and a wash cloth to add texture to him.

I cut him out using my Brother Scan N Cut and then popped him up on the circle die cut using foam tape. Vellum is from a pack that I have had for years that I purchased from Hot off the Press.

118-I, Bear with Heart and 1917-E, Beary best stamps used. 


So, what are you waiting for?!

Why not play along with us and start stamping up a card now. We can’t wait to see your creations!

Condolences

Hello. Playing in the Freshly Made Sketch challenge today.





I just picked up this Penny Black leaf die that was discounted at one of my local craft stores. I used alcohol inks on yupo paper to create the color variations.

Background panels are done using a leaf background stamp and heat embossing it with clear embossing powder. I wanted to keep the leaf die as the primary focal point, but still add a bit of interest on the skinny panels.

The sentiment is from Sweet Stamp Shop. I kept this very clean and simple and kind of masculine, which is hard for a sympathy card.

Thanks for stopping by.
