Curtain Call Challenge - Sept. 1 Dreamcatcher- La-La Land Stamps & Chameleon - Hello


Hello stampin' friends! We have a beautiful inspirational photo for the Sept. 1 Curtain Call Challenge - Dreamcatcher. I hope you can join us for as we LOVE to seeing you beautiful creations. Remember you can take inspiration from the gorgeous Dreamcatcher photo that we have or anything goes!


I used MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Kraft, Natural, Sno Cone, Pink Lemonade and Steel Grey

I made my card with several colours found in the pretty feathers and fabric flowers on the dreamcatcher. I didn't have any of the fun and trendy dreamcatcher stamp sets that are out on the market right now but thought I would colour up this sweet La-La Land Crafts Digi image of Marci with a Quill.

I decided to pull out my Chameleon Color Tones and NEW Chameleon Color Tops to colour up this sweet girl. This was my first time colouring skin (NU00, NU1, NU2) and hair (BR2 with BR5 Color Top) with my Chameleons. It definitely gives a different effect than what I have typically been able to achieve with my Copics but I still like the look. With a little more practice I think I can achieve a more dimensional look like I get with my Copics. I used BG1 for her jeans and PK2 for her T-shift. For the hairband I used PK2 with PK4 Color Tops.

I cut the image out with my Circle STAX Die-namics, left the image in the die and inked with Broken China Distress ink. I then cut Steel Grey Heavyweight Cardstock with my Spellbinder Nestabilites Lacey Circle Die and popped the image panel on it. I cut several flowers from MFT felt to mimic the pretty fabric flowers on the dreamcatcher. I embellished with some Hemp twine and pink sequins.

I stamped the sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Bitty Banners Stamp Set in Grout Grey Premium Dye Ink and cut it with the Bitty Banner Confetti Cuts

I finished up the inside of my card too...I printed a shadow image of Marci with a Quill and coloured in the hearts on her T-shirt with a pink Stardust Sakura Gelly Roll Pen. I added another cluster of felt flowers and stamped a sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Stamp set A Friend Like You Stamp set in Grout Grey Premium Dye Ink

La-La Land Stamps...CTD457 & CAS(E) This Sketch # 236...You're a Class Act


Hello stampin' friends! I made some time today to get crafty, colour up this darling La-La Land Digi stamp - Reading Marci and play along with a couple FUN challenges! I made this card with the pretty colour combo over at the Color Throwdown # 457 and I followed the sketch that they have over at CAS(E) This Sketch # 236


I used MFT Heavyweight Card stock in Pink Lemonade, Banana Split and Grout Grey 


I LOVE this sketch that they have over at CAS(E)This Sketch! CAS is not my go-to style but I really tried to keep this card simple...at least it is simple in my books!

I finally did some inking with the Distress Oxide Inks that I recently bought on Strathmore Bristol Artist paper. Using the Bristol paper was highly recommend by Laura Bassen over at laurafadora in this video.... it is a GREAT tip for effortless blending! I used Worn Lipstick and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink and the sprinkled, flicked and dripped on some water for a few little water droplets.

I coloured up Reading Marci with my Copics, cut the image with the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle Sugar Cuts from SugarPea Designs. I left the image in the die and inked with Spun Sugar Distress ink then matted it with Grout Grey Heavyweight Cardstock. The sentiment is from the Reverse Confetti Class Act Stamp set and stamped on Reverse Confetti Polar White Cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I tided the tag with Hemp cord and added a little sprinkle of sparkly gold YNS Gumdrops.

I finished off the inside of my card too....I printed another digi image of Reading Marci as a shadow image and then stamped the sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Shine from Within Stamp set on a tag cut with MFT Traditional Tag STAX Die-namics. I used the "cut and re-cut technique" to shorted the tag.

Curtain Call Challenge - August 15 - Hibiscus & MFTWSC345...May Your Day be Filled with Sunshine


Aloha stampin' friends! I'm SO glad that I was able to play along with the August 15 Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Hibiscus. It's been a busy month but I finally found the time and crafty mojo to make this Pure Innocence Hula girl card! We've been to Disney on vacation for 2 weeks to celebrate Hannah's 18th birthday and graduation from High School, then when we returned she had her wisdom teeth out, now, we are in full-swing packing/shopping mode for Hannah's big move to Ottawa, where she will be attending University. I hope you can find some crafty time and join us for the August 15 - Curtain Call Challenge - Hibiscus.




When I saw this beautiful tropical inspirational photo for this challenge I decided to pull out my MFT Hibiscus Die-namics and my MFT Pure Innocence Hula Girl Stamp set!  

I made my card with MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Whip Cream, Sno Cone, Bubbelgum, Pink Lemonade, Razzle Berry, Gumdrop Green and Spearmint


I made this following the fab MFTWSC345 sketch that they have over at the MFT Card Challenges blog

The main panel is water coloured paper that I made using the "Smooshing technique" with Evergreen Bough Distress ink and then cut it out with the stitched panel Die-namics from Blueprints 13, the Pink Lemonade strip is cut with the Vertical Stitched Strips Die-namics. I stamped and coloured up this sweet MFT Pure Innocence Hula girl with my Copics, cut her out and popped her up on the Razzle Berry lacey scallop circle frame cut with my Reverse Confetti Lacey Scallop Circle and cut out the centre with my MFT Circle STAX Die-namics

I cut the Hibiscus flower and leaves from MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Razzle Berry, Bubblegum, Pink Lemonade, Spearmint, Gumdrop Green. I Inked the flowers with Abandoned Coral and the leaves with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the MFT CS-Blue Skies Ahead Sentiment Set on Whip Cream Heavyweight cardstock cut with the Reverse Confetti Tall Tag Trio Confetti Cuts with Jet Black Archival Ink.
