A Few Cards

Happy Monday!!! 

This is my second post today. I actually was able to make some cards this weekend for some challenges. I have not had my mojo as of late and so it was fun to just sit down and have some ideas. 

For my first card, I used a combination of a few challenges. 

I created this card using Pinkfresh Studio Festive Tickets Stamps, Stencils and Dies.

I used the Pinkfresh Studios Snowflake Studio Coverplate die for my die cut background.

I am entering this into the October Pinkfresh Studio Monthly Challenge. It is to use the color choices on the badge below or ombre. I chose to highlight the greens and pinks. I am also entering this into the Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge-Anything Goes. I used the Freshly Made Sketches #608 as my inspiration of the layout BUT I was too late to enter it. The last challenge I am entering this in is the Inspirational Challenge #301-Word Prompt-COLD.


My next card I created I used the Try Stamping on Tuesday Sketch #629 as my inspiration.

Again, I used the Pinkfresh Studio Festive Tickets StampsStencils and Dies.

I did Copic Coloring on the stamps in addition to the stencils. I also used some Pinkfresh Studio Ink to ink blend the die cut ticket. 

I paired these stamps with a piece of pattern paper from the Craft Consortium "Ocean" 8"by 8" paper pad. This paper is GORGEOUS and I am so glad that I was able to dig it out for these cards. 


For my third card, I used another piece of the Craft Consortium Ocean paper, the ticket from Pinkfresh Festive Ticket and Spellbinders Christmas Bloom Dies. (these are on sale RIGHT NOW over at the Spellbinder's shop!!)

My inspiration for this card was the sketch from Paper Players Sketch Challenge PP663. 

I had so much fun arranging the die cuts on my card, as well as using some fun products like my Gilded Distress Foundry Wax.

I also used the Pinkfresh Studio Radiating Background Die for some texture in the background of this card. I do not believe this die is available anymore but I have had it in my stash and it was perfect for this card. 

Well, that is all from me today. I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS night!!


There is Still Time to play at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #580

Hey Friends!!!

Today I am popping in to remind you that there is still time to play with Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #580. This round is a theme challenge. It is all about HALLOWEEN.

Below is the challenge badge for the CIC580.

We have a sponsor this time around. Mirtillamente Craft Shop generously donated my image. I altered Svario: Happy Halloween Black Cat to create my card. 

I had so much fun creating this card!!! The background was made with Distress Ink and Distress Oxide Ink. I also used some Distress Stain and Distress Mica Stain over the top. 

I altered the digital image by getting rid of the cat. I then colored in that witch hat with Copic markers. 

Do you want to join us for this round? Hop on over to the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog for more information. 

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!
