Stamp Ink Paper 147 – colour it

The theme for Stamp Ink Paper 147 is colour it: I decided to give the Lawn Fawn a rest and used an Avery Elle stamp and die set instead: I went a little crazy with the colours, but it was meant to be a cheery card after all! Thanks for stopping by!

Stamp Ink Paper 145 – ombre

After a hiatus, I am back in the challenge game. I am starting off with Stamp Ink Paper’s challenge 145 – ombre. I needed a birthday card, so that’s the direction I went in: There’s a bit of glitter (clear Sakura pen) on the flames of the candles. I used Sugar Pea Designs’ Celebrate All…

Stamp Ink Paper #96 – CAS wedding

UPDATE: 01 May 2017 – Design Team Pick (thank you!) It’s clean and simple wedding for Stamp Ink Paper #96: Here is my card:   I stenciled some gold dots then added some cute paper butterfly embellishments. I tried to get a fading effect with the dots, but I need some practice 🙂 Thanks for…

Stamp Ink Paper #95 – sketch

Check out this offset sketch for Stamp Ink Paper #95: Here is my take on the sketch: It’s a pink and feminine Mother’s Day card embellished more than my cards usually are. I am trying to make sure I use what I have (so I can buy some new stuff!). I’ve got two different pink…

Stamp Ink Paper #94 – tic tac toe

It’s my favourite type of challenge for Stamp Ink Paper #94: I chose the bottom row (die cut, light blue and bird):  I stenciled the bird with some light blue ink (insert two birds with one stone joke here) and made some die cuts for the stamped sentiment. I tried to make the leaves a bit…

SIP #92 & FMS #281

I can’t remember the last time I combined challenges, but Stamp Ink Paper #92 and Freshly Made Sketches #281 made a great match!   I loved the colours and really wanted to use them. Here is a close up: The hexagon stamps are Avery Elle (All Squared Up) and the sentiment stamp is Hampton Art…

Stamp Ink Paper #89

Yay it’s a sketch challenge for Stamp Ink Paper #89! I loved this sketch. It was really fun to do. Here is my card: All stamps are from the same Hampton Art Vintologie stamp and stencil set (SC0641). I coloured in the smile sentiment to bring some more yellow in and I used a clear…

S.I.P. #88 -anything but a card

This week’s Stamp Ink Paper challenge is a bit of a shake up: I went with a tag: The background is stenciled in yellow ink. I went with other bright colours (almost keeping them all primary). I dig the HOORAY die cut letters filled in with other colours 🙂 This tag is so cheery! As a…

S.I.P. #87 – kindness

Kindness is the theme for Stamp Ink Paper #87! This is what I rustled up: I embossed the patterned paper to add some texture and to enhance the petals of the flowers. I layered with dark grey, giving the card a more elegant feeling (instead of working off the red or yellow for a brighter…

S.I.P. #86 – yellow, peach & teal

It’s a colour challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper. For SIP #86, the colours are: It’s a lovely combination evokes a warm spring scene, perhaps a bright Easter morning out in the yard for an egg hunt. Alas it was not to be for this card… I just got a new Jillibean Soup stamp set…

SIP 84 – a Tic Tac Toe challenge

It was my favourite type of challenge for Stamp Ink Paper 84! I chose blue, circular element and ribbon: Clever, huh!? 😉 I coloured the ribbon with spray ink as I noticed I need to get some proper blue paper 🙂 Then I used a HOORAY die cut to strengthen the celebratory theme of the…

SIP 83 – sketch

Hello! It’s a fun sketch challenge for Stamp Ink Paper #83: Here is my card: There’s a light blue embossed panel for the background, a crazy pattern to kind of carry on the them of the patterned paper. A pun can often cheer someone up. I know this one makes me giggle! Inked edges in…
