Back to School

In rummaging through my stamp drawer, I found a set of back to school stamps.  Unfortunately, it was not in its original package, so I have no idea who the maker is.

I used Bazzill Basics Paper School Days 6x6 pad. Recollections cardstock, Copic markers, and ribbon from my stash.

Welcome Baby

I surfed through Paper Playful this morning.  I found a CAS card with the theme "baby" on CAS On Sunday.  Whenever I get asked for what style my cards are, I am at a loss to explain.  I don't do CAS usually but they are not really ornate either.  I suppose there is a word for the style, but I just say "I am a little beyond CAS."  I usually do whatever I feel moved to do.   Sometimes it's ornate, sometimes very simple.  Well, with that said, this is the card I did for the CAS Baby theme.

I used Recollections pink cardstock for the base and a piece of white from my scraps for the white layer.  I embossed the white with an Anna Griffin folder.  The carriage is a DS4J digi stamp that I colored with Copics.  You can find the image in the DS4J store here.  The sentiment is computer generated.   I used an SU punch to cut the corners on the sentiment panel. I also used Copics to color the bling.

DS4J 98 - New

Ursula chose the theme "NEW" for this challenge at DigiStamps4Joy.  Why not hop on over to DS4J's challenge here and see some fantastic inspiration.  I used "Forest" as my background and merged "New House" into the grassy area.  You can find these digis and tons more in the online shop.  I colored it with Copics.  The card base is a 5x5 already embossed base by Fundamentals.  I chose this size because the theme is not one for OWH.    I sponged Mustard Seed Distress Ink over the raised areas.  The sentiment is computer generated.  Flowers are from Michael's dollar bin. Bling is from my stash.  Surprise, surprise, it was not clear to be colored by Copics.  It is actualy green.  I cut the banner with my new Sizzix Triplits dies.

Word Art Wednesday Psalm 147:4

I have not entered Word Art Wednesday challenges for some time.  It is time to get back to them.  I made this card for their current challenge Anything Goes, using Psalm 147:4.  I used a combination of stars.  The large star with the sentiment is from Silhouette.   I used the print and cut feature to cut it out and then sponged the edges with Distress Ink.  The two smaller silver stars are also from Silhouette.  After I cut them, I covered them with Watermark ink and used Stampendous Silver embossing powder on them and heat set them.  The bling stars are from the dollar bin at Michaels from a couple years ago.  The card base is Express It cardstock.  The grey cardstock is Bazzill and the black is Recollections.

OWH Sketch 236

Materials Used:
Bazzill cardstock
Recollections cardstock
Recollections 6x6 Blue Christmas dp
Martha Stewart punch
Silhouette layered snowflake

Technique Tuesday sentiment


Sunday Release for DS4J -8/10

Happy Sunday to you.  It's time, once again, for the Sunday release over at DigiStamps4Joy.  After you leave a comment for me,  hop on over to the online store and check out all the new stamps available this week.  Margy, Riette and Jen have been busy at the drawing board again this week.

For my card, I chose to use Riette's Flower Circle.  I resized it in my Cameo and then drew a circle around it.  I added an offset circle in a different color to make it stand out.  The sentiment is a Silhouette file but the flowers are from Flower Circle.  I added some bling which I colored with Copic markers. I also colored the image with Copic markers.  The bow is one of newer favorite dies from Sue Wilson.  It's called Lattice 3D Bow.    The card base is pre-embossed and is from Fundamentals.  I sponged Shabby Shutters Distress Ink over the embossed parts.
