Have a Fairy Christmas

 The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is: Favorite Technique.

The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is: Let it snow, showcasing Lawn Fawn.

My favorite techniques are Inkblending a background and coloring stamped images.

I've used the Lawn Fawn Frosty Fairy Friends for my card. 

For the background I've used the snowflakes from the set and heat embossed them with Wow Opaque bright white  as if it's snowing.

Then I applied Distress inks in different hues of blue, like Chipped

Sapphire and stormy sky, but I layered them with faded jeans and Black soot also, bit of Tumbled Glass I believe, untilIwas happy.

I've used the sentiments from the set and stamped them with Versafine ink.

For some shimmer I aplied Nuvo Shimmer pen, also on the background.

Christmas Craft Creations - December theme: Winter Blues

Christmas Craft Creations - December theme: Winter Blues..
You can interpret this is many ways, I went for a blue card ;-).

It's navy linnen structured, I did use the smoother side, but somehow the snowflake shows the grid and the sentiment does not, funny eh?

The sentiment is from a really old Hero Arts set: Classic Christmas borders, I just love the font.

The snowflake is from Stampendous: Intricate Snowflakes.

I stamped both with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with  Wow Metallic platinum
sparkle embossing glitter.

Rounded two of the corners on the blue panel,mounted it with foamtape and adhered it to a card base.

I wanted this really classy look of blue and silver, moody too.

Twinkle twinkle little star

 That's what the prompt at AAA Birthday Challenges "told" me.

I've diecut a circle from 12x12"paper, with lots of stars, some of them purple. I sprayed the circle with Shimmer Spritz Sparkle, but I don't think you can see it in the photo....In my mind the stars could be constellations Zodiacs.. It all makes sense in my head 😂. 

I added a few more purple stars so my Sagittarian matches. 

As I'm a Sagittarian  I thought it needed purple, cos it's my favourite colour ;-).

Mounted the image from Craftin Desert Divas with foamtape and Stamped the sentiment from Clearly Besotted (Brushed greetings) with Versafine ink

AAA Cards Challenge #180: Made in Minutes + Christmas, with video

This is the last challenge for 2020 and i;s Made in Minutes + the option to use a Christmas theme.

Of course in this time of year, we're all geared up, at least I am all geared up for Christmas.

Our sponsor is Stamplorations.

I left my video in real time, but I did stamp the images and sentiment off camera, just so it could dry, while I was out.

I've used Gina K amalgam ink for the images and Versafine Clair for the sentiment.
I've coloured with Spectrum Noir markers. Adhered the panel to a cardbase with tape runner.

I loved the face on the one penguin that has no idea what it going to hit him ;-).

We'll see you again in 2021

Tis the Season for Treats

 The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is: Fun With dies, showcasing their fabulous own brand in Diecember.

I've used the Peeking Pup on this slimline card, Iplacedit at various angles for some fun  puppies.

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things (Happy Pawlidays) and I stamped it with Versafine ink.

Traced the openings onto the cardbase and inkblended Distress inks behond the windows ( Dusty Concord, Faded Jeans and Rustic Wilderness).

Added lots of clear fine glitter to the Ranger texture paste (transparant clear gloss)and applied it on top.Let ir dry overnight.

Mounted the panel with foamtape and adhered it on top.

More alcohol....inks.

For the Simon Says Stamo Monday Challenge: Focus on alcohol inks.

I made a galaxy or nebula background with Ranger alcohol inks. I used, amongst others, raspberry,botanical, mermaid,indigo, denim, but I was playing so I didn't really register the bottles. Doesn't matter, use what you have.

I've combined the "ink smooshing" technique with the more traditional alcohol ink technique where you dot drops around. blow them out with heat tool, also helps to dry. Then I splattered white and silver acryllic  paint for my stars.

The sentiment and Images are from My

Favorite Things: Space explorer and bitty birthday wishes. I've stamped the images with Gina K amalgam ink and colored them with Tri blend markers. Cut them out and stuck everything together.
