Wedneday Simon Says: Fantastic Florals

Ok here we are for another great Challenge.  This one is Fantastic Florals Challenge, this is just in time for Spring.  Maybe it can start getting warm!  The challenge can be any kind of flowers stamped, handmade, store bought, whatever kind you want.  So here is my take on this Challenge. 

 I used regular card stock, and I did an ink resist of the flowers on the bottom and the birds up top.  I sponged Diamond Press Ink in green for the grass and sponged the sky in Ranger Tim Holtz's Stormy sky.  The stamp set and the Folder was a free gift when I purchased the magazine Simply Cards & Papercraft.  I love the tree embossing folder,  and stamps they beautiful. I will let you know I had a little problem with the Stamps and I had to re-ink it over a couple of times. 




 I then Colored the tree with Spectrum Noir markers.  I just followed the embossed lines from the folder.




I then took the die and cut out the little flowers for the tree.  After the flowers are cut I took the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens and gave them a little shimmer.  I added all the flowers to the tree and still they needed something so I put a little rhinestone in the middle of each flower.


I then added the back card stock which is a deep pink and matches the flowers to the tree card stock.  I then added the Thinking of you stamp to pull it all together.  I did pop up the the tree card stock off of the pink card stock to give is a little dimension, I all so popped up the Thinking of you stamp.



Now I would like to tell you that I have always signed and dated my cards on the back, and if I add the card to any kind of challenge I will also put that on the back as well, this just lets me keep things organized and I know which ones I added to which challenges.

  1. This is such a lovely card, it reminds me of that time just before dusk in the summer when everything is perfect and still.

Simon Says Wednesday: Anything Goes

Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge

I love when you start a card thinking it will be one thing and it turns into something completely different, so needless to say the pictures that I did take as I went along don't match.  I got so into what I was doing I stopped taking pictures lol.....  When I started I wanted to do a lady bug card, not sure how it turned into a turtle but it did and I Love it.  The back ground I sponge with Tim Holtz Distress ink Broken China.  I then used a circle scalloped to do the shaker part of the card.  I stamped and colored the turtle with Spectrum Noir Makers.  The stamp is a turtle carrying a present but I changed it to a pot of planted hearts with twine around it.  I then used vellum for the sentiment.

Happy Thanksgiving ( A&M Memories ) November 11, 2017

Hi everyone and welcome back, I am Lisa, I hope everyone is doing well and getting ready for Turkey Day?  I have made this wonderful Happy Thanksgiving Card for your enjoyment.


With this card I used my Cricut Explore Air 2.  It is very easy to upload your digital stamps into the Cricut This is the layout that I created for this card.  I will give you a little hint, it is easier to color your  digital image before you cut it with the Cricut.  I colored the Pilgrim with Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers I also used some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers for her hair, eyes, and the Turkey as you can see below. I have choosen this dark yellow card stock for the background to the leaf card stock. I used Foam Tape to hold all the layers together.  I had some fall ribbon and cord that I added to the leaf layer and wrapped it around the back so you could not see the ends.  With the cord I put a little  Open knot for decoration.









"Hebrews" Coffee Card ( Skipping Stones Design ) Oct 16th Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to Skipping Stones Design's October blog hop.  For my card I have decided to use the Coffee stamp #2.  I colored the coffee cup with Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers.  This is a Digi stamp so after printing I did wait 24hr before coloring with the Alcohol markers to make sure the ink is completely dry, so I do not have any mixing of the printer ink with the alcohol marker colors.  I had a great time creating this card.  Please scroll down for pictures, supplies (  link's ),  a how toooooo, and a tutorial at the end.  Make sure you visit the links below to see other cards made by Skipping Stones Design Team.  Please make sure to leave a comments on everyones creations, let them know how much you like the designs they have created.
