It has been a while since I last posted a card challenge, but that will be changing soon.
I have several cards to enter into challenges and my 2016 Scrapbook Expo make-n-take
projects, workshop projects, and small but satisfying haul to post as well.

This cute little chick card began as a make-n-take card for one of my classes. I had, originally, used the new SU! square dies and placed it on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock cut with the hexagon die. It just didn’t pop and I really didn’t like the card. So, when I saw the Freshly Made Sketches challenge #247,the light bulb came on, and I sat down and created this cute card in a matter of minutes.

FMS #247

I pulled the bird off of the original card (holding my breath the whole time – you know what I mean. . . . when you don’t want something to be stuck really well to your card, it is, and this was!!!) Whew, I got it off with no damage. I cut it with SU! circle dies and matted it on Cherry Cobbler cut with SU! zig-zag circle dies. I took some retired SU! designer series paper featuring a woodgrain (reminded me of a barn) and matted it on Early Espresso SU! cardstock. I placed a strip of Early Espresso down onto the woodgrain paper and placed the hello die cut on top of it. The white showing beneath is intentional. I wanted a slight shadow behind the Hello Honey paper to make it stand out from the Early Espresson. The last item I wanted to mention was a left over sunflower from a side-step sunflower card a friend and I made (I’ll be posting it soon). It is highlighted with a little dazzling diamonds and prills for the center of the flower.

I almost forgot to mention how I created the chick. It came from the SU! stamp set Honeycomb Happiness. I stamped the chick in Staz-on Jet Black onto 140 lb watercolor paper. I watercolored the chick using re-inkers and my aqua-painter. The colors SU! re-inker colors I used were, Pool Party, Hello Honey, Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow, and Soft Suede. Then I went back with a Chocolate Chip Stampin’ Write Marker and added some dimension to the bird by accenting its check with marks to create a feathery look.

This card went from blah to adorable. I hope you enjoy it!

It seems like a long time since I have posted. I have been sick plus super busy. The last make-n-take we had at my house featured the card below.  It is using the new SU! Woodland Textured embossing folder. Here is the card:

SUO #130

This is a super simple card to make. I used a brayer to roll Crumb Cake onto the inside flaps of the Woodlands embossing folder. I then placed a piece of Very Vanilla card stock into the folder and ran it through my Big Shot. I cut a wreath out of SU! Color Me Autumn DSP. I cut out the leaves with a retired BigZ die (can’t remember the name) and ran them through various SU! embossing dies (it doesn’t matter which dies you use, just something to give the leaves texture). I printed out “hello” in a color close to Elegant Eggplant, which is the color of the card stock used to mat the embossed Very Vanilla.

Supplies: **Note: I added the current Leaflets Framelits and Acorn Builder below, which can be used to substitute for retired product I used on my card.

A really great simple and quick card I made was one where I used cards from the Project Life card set. The set I used is a retired set; therefore, I am going to list a current Project Life card set in the supply list.

This is such a clean and simple/quick card I think it fits this week’s TGIF Card Challenge.  Here is their sketch:

Using the Project Life cards for mats and sentiment holders on a card is a great way to introduce stamping to new customers that might be intimidated by more technically challenging cards. This takes away the guess work of color combinations that work and limits initial supplies to a bare minimum. It’s also a great way to make cards for those crafters that already have a full plate.

All I had to do was cut my base, fold in half, cut down the largest project life card to 4″ x 5 1/4″, stamp a sentiment on a coordinating smallest project life card, and adhere all of the cards to the card base. This took all of five minutes, at the most. It will take you longer trying to decide what sentiment to use on the card.

I think this card turned out really well.

Here is the Freshly Made Sketches 181 sketch:

FMS Final 181-001I wanted to create a white mat on a white background for this challenge. I took the white mat and punched holes around the edges with my paper piercing tool and a piercing guide. I took the floral patch stamps and stamped two flowers along with some leaves; then, I accented them with a pearl. I took the Peachy Keen stamp set and created a border using Crisp Cantaloupe and stamped the word Hello with the ink as well.

Here is my entry in the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge 181 –

This card is a quick and simple card that would work well for a make-n-take class.

Supplies:

Retired Stamp Set: Peachy Keen

 

Here in Georgia, it really feels like Spring.  Cheyenne, my co-designer of this card, and I thought SU! stamp set Up, Up, & Away was the perfect stamp set to complete the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge (PCCCS137).

This is my FIRST Card Challenge. I found this website http://fusioncardchallenge.blogspot.com and decided to make this my first ever card challenge entry. Here is the challenge:

FusionChallengeMarch24

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I took the color challenge and combined it with the sketch challenge to make a fusion of both challenges. One of the cards in my March make-n-take class used a technique where watercolor paper was spritzed with water and the Painted Petals stamps were stamped onto the wet cardstock creating a slight watercolor effect. Without further ado, here is my challenge.
