NOV SID- Thanks

Hello and welcome the Stick it Down Nov Sketch!!!

I loved the ink drip look on the Sketch this month and new I wanted to use a set I got from Hero Arts a year or two ago. I thought it was perfect for the sketch and this time of year! Since the stamp set is a layered set I started by stamping the more solid letters using distress oxide inks and then spritzed them with water, letting the water help the color drip down. Once it was dry I took the outlined layer of the letters and stamped in a dark brown... as well as the smaller parts sentiments. I then trimmed my sentiment panel and adhered it to my card base. Love the look and the Thanks take the stage on my card so to speak. ;-)


Hope you play along with us this month and every month over at SID, we have 3 new sketches every month... 2 for scrappers and 1 for cardmakers! I can't wait to see you take on the sketches this month. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

OCT SID- Thankful For You

Welcome to my post for Stick It Down's October card sketch. Head over to the blog to the DT's work for the card and both scrapbook sketches!


Here is my card for the sketch this month! I didn't change much for my take on the sketch this month, I know I wanted to make it a fall theme and thought the rings on the card reminded me of a wreath. I stamped various leaves in a large circle pattern using a few colors of ink on each one. I then stamped the leaves outlines and the sentiment. I used my sentiment towards the bottom corner instead of the top corner. To finish the card I added some sequins for a little sparkle on my "wreath".


Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see your creations over at the Stick it Down blog! Have a great day!

MLC Oct- Joy to the World

ETA: ever have a post done ready to go and forgot to hit publish!!! Welp that's exactly what I did, so if you were looking for my post from the blog, sorry I'm late with the details! 


Hello and welcome to post for the Merry Little Christmas challenge blog October challenge. It is as always anything goes as long as it's Christmas!


The presents on the card are from an ephemera pack, that I colored and adhered to the music paper. I then adhered it to a layer of green cardstock before adding it to blue card base. I stamped and colored the wreath then added the sentiment, before fussy cutting it and popping it up on my card. To finish the card I added some sequins in a blue that coordinated with the cardbase.

Hope you plan to stop by the blog to see my teammates cards and to play along with us! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!

Supplies:
Kaiesercraft- Letters to Santa (stamps) and Christmas Edition (paper and ephemera)
Darice- Sequins

Recollections cardstock

Sept SID



My take on the sketch this month! I had a scrap piece of paper that was a scrap of water color paper that had been colored. I decided to see how well it would die cut and loved the look of the  colored bats. I then glued the bats to some shiny black cardsotck.



Just love the way they turned out, I may try it again with other colors.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you over on the SID blog for this months challenge!

MLC Sept

 Hello all! It's September, all ready... can you believe it?!!! I know I can't. I don't mind really, September is a great month and means fall is just around the corner... and it's my favorite season. It also means we are on a count down to Christmas and I still have plenty of cards to make to be ready for it! 
It also means it's the start of a new challenge over at Merry Little Christmas... which is as always ANYTHING GOES!!!  As long as it's Christmas of course. This month I used one stamp and created two cards. 

My first card I stamped and colored with copics before fussy cutting the image out and popping it up with some foam tape. I then stamped the sentiment under the image on the card panel and added it to a yellow card base. I know yellow isn't a Christmas color per say, but it did look good with the yellow color in the image.


Now for the second card, I stamped the image 3 times (once on the card base) and used a "light" hand with the coloring. I then fussy cut the layers and adhered them on top of the card base, for a slight raised look and a little more depth to the shadowy areas.


As always thanks for stopping by and checking out my cards ,  Can't wait to see what you create this month! Have a great day!!!

AUG SID- Noel

Today I'm sharing with you my card for our August Challenge, I can not believe we are already halfway through August and things have gotten busy for the family already.



For this months card I stuck pretty much with the sketch, my goal was to showcase some of the pretty bazzill cardstock with the gold accents... love how pretty this paper is. I created a tag and heat embossed the sentiment in gold. Before adhering the tag on my card I added some twine with gold in it and tied a bow. To finish the card I added some clear dropletz for a slight "flare".


Don't forget to check out the blog to play along and see what the card team did with the card for the sketch! Can't wait to see what you create. Thanks for stopping by, see you next time!
