Ink #208 Leap

We have a new challenge at Inkspirational. This challenge we'd like you to be inspired by the word LEAP as 2020 is a leap year with the 29th of February.

I love purses and accessories...

Today starts a new challenge over at Catch the Bug - our challenge this week is BINGO.

I used Heels and Accessories, colored with Promarkers and 'glossified' with glossy accent on the pearl necklace. I put it onto a little square of vellum paper with glitter flowers, which I machine stitched onto the background. I used an ombré colored DP, dry embossed and covered it with glitter paste. The sentiment - wishing you a super day - was stamped onto a die cut heart with cross stitched pattern.

We have bew challenge for you at Inkspirational. This challenge we'd like to see some glittery stuff - glitter, shimmer paste, anything shiny on a strip or small area of your work. Please head over to the challenge blog to see inspiration from my teamies.
I actually made two cards, one feminine and one masculine.

1) Feminine card
I mixed old and new wahi tapes, one is a glitter one, on a black card base. I stamped a few birthday sentimnets. The woman is actually a fairy from Stamping Bella, but I removed her wings. I added 3 sparkly pearls.
This card is also for:

2) Masculine card
This card is made with the same concept as the feminine one, mixing bits of washi tapes. The background is a mop up of inks and a bit of splatter. I used a die cut silhouette and blue colors, being inspired by the book cover of  "Where the Red Fern Grow" over at The Library Challenge.

Twofer Card Challenge - Hearts and 2nd blogaversary

Here are my two cards for the Twofer Card Challenge #23, where the theme is HEARTS. 
For both cards I used a heart die from Xcut/Docrafts. I made a card for a non specific occasion and a card with a choice of sentiment to congratulate someone on their birthday, on a new job or a new home.
 
 
1) "A balanced diet is a cupcake in each hand"
That's what this sentiment in Norwegian says. I think it's fun and works for a card for many or no occasion at all. A really old DP (Bo Bunny?) and the image is a pre colored topper from Katy Sue Designs.
This card is also for:  
Allsorts - #555 More Than A Single Word Sentiment
Crafty Catz - #489 ANYTHING GOES WITH OPTIONAL TWIST FUNNY




2) "Congratulations on..."
I used a sentiment where you can tick off for the appropriate occasion, the choices being a birthday, a new job or a new home. I think this DP is from Bo Bunny, I used a spellbinder oval frame and a sticthed rectangular frame from MFT. The image is a pre-colored topper from Katy Sue Designs, which is also my "new" item.

First Stella Says Sketch of 2020


We are back with the first sketch challenge of 2020 over at Catch the Bug.


I colored up Dog Heart topper with Promarkers.
I placed it onto a background made with Distress Oxides and brusho. Using my stamping platform I first stamped the sentiment onto the background, then I added the image and stamped again. I think the sentiment came out nicely and without the booboos I feared would happen.
Along the edges I added a brand new washi tape.

I used a pup holding a heart, colored with Promarkers.

For the background I tried something new for me, misxing Distress Oxides in reds and pinks and a little bit of brusho. I finally got hold of some watercolor paper, which I managed to keep quite flat.

I used a leftover piece of DP with hearts.
The sentiment is part of a new die/stamp set from Concord & 9th.

First Christmas card for 2020

I hope you all had a great start on the new year. Since I had lots of Christmas items on my desk and I got a magazine with a freebie set of of cute Christmas cats I thought I would get started on this year's Christmas cards - only 11 months left before they need to get posted, lol.
I was inspired by the colors at Color Throwdown and was mindful of keeping my card light weight for postage.
I embossed the background, added a die cut scene all in white, added a chipboard sentiment and colored my cat with Promarkers.


This card is for:
Color Throwdown- #574
Sweet Stampers - #38 Christmas
Allsorts - 551/2 Anything Goes
