There are so many cute bunnies in this stamp set from My Favorite Things! I’ve had these stamps and dies for a while, but hadn’t gotten a chance to use them on a card until now. I’m also entering this card in two challenges on the My Favorite Things blog: The Sketch #291 challenge and MFT Color Challenge #50. After I stamped and die cut the bunny, I colored it with Copics to match the MFT color challenge. I popped it up with dimensional adhesive on the patterned paper background that I spattered with white spray ink. I heat embossed the sentiment in white and added the musical notes from the stamp set. Thanks for visiting.

I created this card for a challenge with a group of friends to make a purple-themed card, as a tribute to a group member who recently passed away. I colored the image background with Ken Oliver Liquid Metals in a nice, metallic amethyst wash. I stamped over it with black ink. I used some lacy die-cuts for visual interest. Thanks for visiting.

As with most mixed-media pages, this little piece was made with a number of supplies over several days. The Mixed Media Mojo July Challenge is to create something with a Summertime theme and a “seashell twist.” The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is Nautical/By the Sea. So I set to work on this page with these challenges in mnd. The circles were from Gelliplate prints. I pulled out two stamp sets that I’ve had for years for a beachy feel. I’ve also been watching Marta’s art journal and mixed media videos at Maremi SmallArt, which have been very inspirational. I built layers with gesso, tissue paper, Gelatos, ink sprays and stamping. Thanks for visiting today.

I wanted to create another iris fold card. For this one I cut a “window” from one of my dies. I used a square Iris Fold pattern from Judy Headrick at Cards and Crafts to fill in the frame with multiple metallic colors. I made this card for an older gentleman and added the gears for a masculine touch. Thanks for visiting today.
- Stamp – Penny Black “Freshly Cut”
- Kraft paper card
- Prismacolor colored pencils
- Memories pigment ink pad “Unicorn”
I couldn’t wait to color this image! I felt that the image should be the focal point, so a clean and simple card is really appropriate. I couldn’t decide which media to try first and I stamped it out two different ways (the other is embossed onto watercolor paper, so a watercolor version will be coming!). I like the effect when coloring with pencil on a Kraft paper card, so that was the route I took here. I stamped with white ink and then colored with a simple pallette. The Penny Black and More Challenge is Anything Goes with a Stamp and the Penny Black Saturday Challenge this month is a One Layer Card, so this seemed to fit the bill. Thanks for visiting today.

It has been a long time since I’ve created an iris fold card! I volunteered to participate in an iris or tea bag fold card swap, so I jumped in. Now I want to make some more! The pattern is from Circle of Crafters, where you can find many different free designs to work with. I decided to accent the card with acorns from the Clearly Besotted stamp and die sets I’ve had for quite a while. Thanks for visiting today.
