SSS Challenge…Take a Picture

Hi all! I have a card I created for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and this week Simon Says…Take a Picture!

And I’m not going to lie, I was so excited! You may not know this about me but I have a slight obsession with cameras (okay, it’s a huge obsession) I have a vintage camera collection that is my pride and joy! :] And I’ve been hoarding some camera related patterned paper for quite some time now (they are just so pretty!)  But, this challenge forced me to use some of it and I’m so happy I did!! :]

I used some grey card stock that I received in one of my monthly card kits as the card base and the patterned paper is from Studio Callico’s Darling Dear collection. I created the tiny polaroid with a 1 inch square punch (I don’t have any square dies or any of those adorable polaroid dies) and my paper trimmer. I then stamped the heart from an adorable Lawn Fawn stamp set that was also apart of a card kit in Hero Arts Red Royal Mid-tone Shadow Ink and die cut the “you” from the SSS You die and stamped “make me smile” from the coordinating stamp set.

I gotta say, I’m very happy with how this turned out, but that’s not a surprise seeing as how it is camera related. :] Thanks for stopping by!!

10 Minute Craft Dash #18

I have been lagging behind on updating my blog with a crap-ton of cards(and yes…it really is a crap-ton of cards to share)

We’ve been busy around here packing up my boyfriend’s things because we’ll be moving into the new place on Monday YAY! I can’t wait! :] But, I figured I’d post my card for the 10 Minute Craft Dash and get that all squared away.

I have to admit, this one was a huge challenge for me, but that’s a good thing! I don’t normally use greens, yellows, or purples (why is that I wonder?….I really don’t know) but I managed to find some card stock on hand that I was able to use, and I’m so happy I did!

I made this card in 9 minutes and 36 seconds, JUST UNDER the radar haha

I used patterned papers from American Crafts & Basic Grey’s Plumeria 6×6 paper pads. Also, I used the largest heart from Unity Stamp Company’s Loads of Love Stamp Set, and Simon Says Stamp’s You stamp set for the sentiment. Originally I had wanted to die cut the heart (not stamp it) but I didn’t have a heart die that was big enough & that’s probably for the best since I just barely made it under the 10 minutes. Anyhow, thanks for stopping by, hopefully I’ll be back soon with a massive upload of new cards! :]

 

CAS(E) this Sketch & Muse Challenge

For the CAS(E) this sketch challenge I instantly knew I wanted to use the stamp set that I just recently got in from Unity Stamp Company. And I knew I wanted to pull some of the colors from this weeks Muse. So I used the yellow and blue tones from that and combined it with the sketch from CAS(E) this sketch.

I just did some very simple copic coloring, I am not very good nor do I have many markers and since I am in the process of moving half of my supplies are in a storage unit (including my colorless blender) so I had a bit of a tough time.

I used staz on jet black ink to stamp the sentiment onto the vellum and wrapped it around the front panel.

I used Hero Arts Tide Pool and Soft Pool shadow ink to stamp the clouds. Rounded the top right corner of the panel that has the main image stamped on it and popped it up on some foam adhesive.
