Mix Media Challenge - Under the Boardwalk

Here is a card I made for the mix challenge today on Splitcoast Stamping.  We were to use four mediums and that is totally out of my comfort zone.  I used the Artistic Outpost Boardwalk stamps.  The background was sprayed with Dilusions sprays and a gold glitter spray.  I stamped the image with Stazon.  I used heavy gesso for the sand and added inka gold over the top of it.  I added the spanish moss to look like seaweed.    The girl is colored with copics.  I added the shells and some gold stars to finish off the card.

Thanks for looking.

Classy Cards N Such - God Is

Here is a card I made for Classy Cards N Such.   I really like the Sue Wilson die, Spanish Collection-Seville) it always looks so elegant.  I added some roses from my stash and used the flourish from the Impression Obsession Heart Flourish.    I tied the gingham bow using the bow easy.

Thanks for taking a look at my card today.

Free 4 All - Sand Between My Toes

Here is a card I made for the Free 4 All Challenge this past week.  I hosted the challenge and the theme was sand between my toes.  This Bugawump image was perfect for it.

I made this card for the sketch challenge this week.  It looks like a storm is brewing.

Thanks, for coming by and taking a look at my cards.

Classy Cards N Such - Birds and Butterflies

Here is the card I made for the Hummingbird challenge for Classy Cards N Such.  I chose to use paper that has hummingbirds on it.  I used the Spellbinders Mary die using a green paper from the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Paper and a brown for the top layer of it.  I used the Memory Box Rhone Butterfly Wings to cut the pink and blue butterflies and added pearls.  I used Poppy Stamps country fence die at the bottom of the card.   I added the Hello from the Impression Obsession greeting die set.  I put sequins over my card to give it some bling.

I hope you will join us for the challenge this week.

Classy Cards - Pretty Red Poppies

Here is a card I made in one of my very favorite color combos.  I also used one of my favorite dies - the Sue Wilson Beverly Hills die.  The Memory Box Prim Poppy die is a perfect die to use if you are looking for a quick card with no coloring.   The bow is a Sue Wilson  Itty Bitty Bow die.  I used it differently than it was planned for.  I used both the tail pieces and did not use the actual bow.  I thought it was kind of cute this way.  I attached the pieces using Art Institute adhesive.  This glue is perfect for gluing especially if you want a fast drying glue.  I have a friend visiting this week and she is really liking this glue.

Thanks for stopping in today.  Have a fun and safe weekend.

Classy Cards N Such - Not A Moment

I made a card for the Classy Cards N Such Blog with one of my favorite color combo's.  I like pink and adding black makes it even better, in my opinion.  I used a sentiment for my card using the Sweet N Sassy stamp set  "God Is".  I stamped it and used the Spellbinders Fancy Labels One to cut the sentiment out.  I added pink and black bling to help tie it all together.  For full details of my card please visit the blog.
