“Technique Tuesday” VSC Challenge #38

Good morning lovelies! It’s September 1st and we have a new challenge. Can’t believe it’s September and my oldest starts 3rd grade in a few days. Sometimes I jut want to tell time to slow it down and take it easy. 

So this month we are focusing on techniques. The design team and I used several of our fave and some new techniques to create our September challenge project. 

For my cards I used several techniques. For the first one I decided to try out the no-line water coloring technique. I really loved the look and will definitely be trying this technique out more 

Stamps used : V’s Sweet “Coffee Break” and “Birthday Wishes”

For the second card I dried emboss the images in silver and then watercolored it. After watching the talented Kristina Werner masks a card the same way I wanted to give it a go. The silver embossing really gives the card elegance. Love how it came out.

Stamp set used: V’s sweet “Birthday wishes”

“Anything goes” VSC challenge #37

Good morning!! So it’s been about a week since we came back from our family trip and I am slowly trying to get back into the groove of things. We have a new challenge over at our Challenge blogg. Our theme for the month is “Anything goes” so let’s see all those gorgeous projects. 

For this month’s challenge I made a tag. To make this tag I used my “Birthday wishes” stamp set and colored in the balloons using Tim holtz markers. I then popped it on a tag from Speigalmom. I distressed the edges with Tim holtz ink and added may arts ribbon on top of the tag. I also decorated one of the itty bitty bags available in the shop and stamped the word celebrate and happy birthday on the bag. On the back of the tag I adhered a gift card. 

This was fun and easy to make for any occasion. Hope you liked my tag and I would love to see your projects on our challenge blog

“Celebrate” VSC Challenge #36

Good morning everyone! Yay! its July first which means 19 more days till my birthday. This month’s challenge theme is celebrate. There is always something to celebrate and an awesome handmade card to go with it. For this month’s challenge I really wanted to use all the new products that have arrived in the shop. I also really wanted to use our new paper bitty bags. Our DT Karen has inspired me use it as a pocket for my card that I created. I decided to use one of my first stamps I ever released which is “Baby Love” and made a card celebrating our newest member of our family, my God daughter. So for this project I made a card and instead of putting it into an envelope I stuffed it in a paper bag and added a tag to it. I will list all the products I used at the bottom.

“Holiday Theme” VSC Challenge #29

Good morning crafters! It’s December 1st so that means a new challenge over at V’s Sweet challenge. Woohoo!! I just love this holiday season. I have been able to complete a lot of my projects that I had planned like my December Daily and my very first advent calendar (more info on that in the last post). I also want to try to do a Holiday card series starting today. Lets see how that goes. Anyways, I have two cards to share with you today and both use my “Christmas Cheer” stamp which is currently available as a digital download but I will have a clear set version available for purchase this week. yay!!! I am very excited about that.

So for card one I decided to try out a shaker card using foam sheets instead of my usual way which was with foam adhesive tape (which is way more expensive). I used the stitched rectangle dies from Lawn Fawn and added some sequins which is available for purchase in my shop. I colored in the ornaments with copic markers and then added glossy accents and glitter.



For my second card I used one of the ornament stamps as a pattern and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I then cut out some snowflake’s using a spellbinder die. I die cut the word greetings with my silhouette and then heat embossed it with some gold embossing powder.IMG_2208

Well I hope you like my cards and would love for you all to join in on our December challenge for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the shop. Thank you and Happy Crafting!

New VSC November Challenge “Anything Goes”

Good Morning crafters!!! We have a new challenge this month and the theme is “Anything Goes” We were on a break last month but we are back and we are looking for two Guest Designers for December’s challenge. Yay!!!

Ok so for my card I used my new ” Birthday Wish” stamp set. I just love how fun and versatile this stamp is. I stamp a few balloons on some copic paper and colored them in with copics. I then added some glitter with my wink of stella pen and topped it off with some glossy accent. I then added some natural twine ribbon for string. I used two of the sentiments from the same set and viola. An easy fun dimensional card. Now don’t forget to stop by our challenge blog for more inspiration. We will have more cards from our DT soon and don’t forget to apply for a spot as a Guest Designer for next month. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
