Visible Image Challenge- Make it Sparkle!

Visible Image

Hi!  Happy September! =)  It's time for a new Visible Image Challenge, and this month we were told to Make it Sparkle!  I looooove sparkle!



I started by painting a piece of watercolor paper with yellow acrylic paints, and while it was still wet I stamped my Grunge Harlequin background stamp to create a bit more texture.  Once dry, I stamped the chandelier and sentiment with black pigment ink and heat embossed them with a sparkly embossing powder.  Next I went over the entire card with my versamark pad and heat embossed again with the same embossing powder.  I love how different areas of the card pick up different colors.  So cool!  I added a sparkly black ribbon above the chandelier and adhered my card front to a glittery black card base.


That's all for today, thank you for stopping by!

Paper Sweeties September Inspiration Challenge #23 - 'Pretty Pumpkins'


Hey friends!   It's time for a new Paper Sweeties challenge.  I was inspired by the colors in the inspiration photo.  This card was easily created by masking and stamping the balloon from the Party Time stamp set.  Once I was done stamping, I colored my balloons, and then stamped/die cut my banner using the Hello Friend stamp set and die.


How about some inspiration from the rest of the team!?

Visible Image- Love With your Heart...

Visible Image

Hi!  I'm back again today with another Visible Image card.  I started with by inking the edges of  piece of white cardstock with Distress Ink (Worn Lipstick.)  I used the same ink to stamp my hearts from the Molly Rules stamp set.  I used a stamp from the Jake Skates stamp set to stamp the top and bottom borders in black pigment ink, and then used black embossing powder to heat emboss.  I did the same with my Create With Your Soul sentiment.  I really like how this card turned out. =)



That's all for today, thank you for stopping by!

'Special Occasions'


The special occasion could be anything from a Birthday, to a Baby Congratulations or to a Wedding Card to name but a few examples, the options are endless and everyone interprets challenge words differently, but that's part of the fun and creativity!

Visible Image- Butterfly

Visible Image

Hey there!  The card I am sharing today is really simple to make.  I started with a piece of silver cardstock, and used Distress Ink to ink the edges.    I took an old book page, covered it with a thin layer of Gesso and stamped my butterfly with an aqua pigment ink.  Then I embossed the butterfly with clear embossing powder. I used black ink to stamp my sentiment and then adhered my card front to an aqua card base.  I think it turned out really pretty. =)



That's all for today, thank you for stopping by!
