Paper craft project no. 317: Enjoy today one layer card

Hello! Here’s a quickie post to remind you that we’re mid-way through the current challenge at Time Out, where we’re CASEing a card made by the super-talented Amy Wanford. For my card, I went all red (!) — it’s my way of trying to get over the winter blues. Even though winter doesn’t officially start until December 23, I’ve been feeling it for the last 3 weeks. I’m not liking the gray days and foggy days at all, and I am missing the sun way too much! And so the cards I’ve been making lately have bright colors :o)

How I CASEd Amy’s card: sentiment (big and small combo), focal image (butterfly instead of a cloud), border (red border with a painterly look)
My twist: non-wintery, bright red colors, and one layer…of course!

The stamps I used are all from STAMPlorations – The grungy splashes and ink blots are from Holiday Artsy and the graphic butterfly and sentiment are from the newly released Trendy Butterflies (it’s a set that stamp club subscribers get for free!)

Let it Snow

Paper craft project no. 316: Merry Christmas one layer card

Hey, everyone! We have a new challenge this week at The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge. Our theme this week is…yep, you guessed it — Christmas! I used the holly square digi provided by our sponsor, Eureka Stamps, to create my one layer card. I printed the image on cardstock, colored it with Chameleon pens, then trimmed the cardstock to size. I masked the image before stamping the poinsettias and sentiment. I applied a bit of green shabby shutters Distress ink along the edges to finish the card. I hope you’ll come check out the projects that my teammates created and then play along. I should also mention that this is my last project for the team, as I decided it’s time to step down. I’m sure I’ll be playing in the challenges, though, because it’s a great place to play and my teammates are simply awesome! :o)

Linking my card to these fun challenges: (1) Addicted to Stamps and More #125 – Photo Inspiration (I was inspired by the red, green, and gold); (2) Paper Creators Crafts #33 – All About Christmas; and (3) Crafty Cardmakers and more #129 – Christmas.

Paper craft project no. 315: You’re a sweetheart one layer card

It’s a great Monday morning, folks! I have been up since 8 last night (I’m on a weird schedule) and DH and I should be well on our way to town by the time this post is published. I haven’t been out much in the last couple of weeks because of work, school, and my weird sleep schedule, and this week, I’m trying to get turned around and at the same time get a bit of sunshine. I’m dropping packages in the mail and then we’re headed to do some grocery shopping. After that, we’re having a little lunch date at our favorite Thai restaurant (I can almost taste that vegetarian pad thai…). Keeping my fingers crossed I’ll be awake enough to enjoy lunch ;o)

Anyway, this one layer card is to remind you that there’s a little less than 3 weeks left to play in the last sketch challenge at STAMPlorations. Linky is open until December 28, you can link up as many projects as you want (instead of the usual 3 projects max) as long as they’re based on the sketch, and you can win one of two gift certificates!

I made my card by first stamping the butterflies (from the Trendy Butterflies set) in different shades of blue. I masked the big butterfly then stamped the leaves (from the Trendy Leaves set) in different shades of green. Then with a TCW reversed chicken wire stencil, I sponged broken china Distress ink for a bit of interest and then stamped the sentiment (from the Sugar Rush set) in black. Finished the card by rounding the bottom right corner. As you can see, I flipped the sketch and used butterflies instead of circles :o)

Thanks for stopping by!

Paper craft project no. 312: You’re a dear friend one layer card

Hello! It’s time for a new challenge at Time Out Challenges and this time, we’re doing the CASE with Your Own Twist Challenge. We’re CASEing the talented Amy Wanford of Crafting Confessions. Here’s the card she made:

I was inspired by the two rows of snowflakes and hearts, as well as the sentiment so I went with that and stamped the butterfly in turquoise and the flower in pink. The sentiment is from the new stamp club set at STAMPlorations called Sugar Rush and I stamped it in black. I finished the card with an artsy border using a pink Japanese watercolor brush pen. So my twist is pretty obvious: a non-winter/holiday one layer card :o) I hope you’ll come check out what my teammates created and how they were inspired by Amy’s card! We’re joined by another talented crafter, Milla of Mustesormi. We can’t wait to see how you’ll CASE Amy’s card!

Thanks for stopping by!

Paper craft project no. 306: Sweet friend one layer card

It’s time for a new sketch challenge at the STAMPlorations blog. It’s the last sketch challenge for the year and we’re making it a long one! The linky is open until December 28 and there’s no limit to how many times you can play. Oh, and we have a couple of extra special prizes too! Julie Beech of Crafted by Jules is our guest designer. I hope you’ll come check out the projects that Julie and the STAMPlorations girls made for the sketch!

For my one layer card, I stamped one of the trendy butterflies (new set!) and masked it before stamping the artsy sunflower and smaller butterfly. The sentiment is from Sugar Rush, the December/January stamp club set. I spattered a bit of mustard seed and faded jeans Distress inks and finished the card by running the side of my Japanese watercolor brush pen to create the artsy blue border. The card is rather bright for the season — and I did it because I was getting a little tired of the gloomy days and I needed something with bright, happy colors :o)

Linking up my card to these fun challenges: (1) Crafting When We Can #83 – Clean and Simple; (2) A Little Bit Crafty – CAS; (3) Sister Act #84 – Anything Goes; and (4) Clear It Out – Anything Goes.

Thanks for stopping by!

STAMPlorations November Stamp Release Blog Hop – Day Three

Welcome to Day 3 of the November Stamp Release Blog Hop here at STAMPlorations! For complete info on our hop, including how you can win stamps, click here.

Today, we’re putting the spotlight on TYPOGRAFIA. We’ll be picking one commenter to win this set so leave a comment here and on the rest of the STAMPlorations girls’ posts for a chance to win the set.

I’m a font nerd. I love typography and I also love inspirational quotes. These two loves are what led me to design the stamps in the Typografia line. For today’s hop, I’m sharing a one layer card I made featuring one of my favorite quotes. I started by stamping my background, layer stamping the leaves from Trendy Leaves in Memento dew drop inks (dandelion, cantaloupe, tangelo, morocco, rhubarb stalk, cottage ivy, and pear tart). Then I sponged the lighter inks over the area, leaving some “spots” of light before stamping the sentiment in jet black archival ink. And the card is done :o)

Thanks so much for visiting and hopping along! If you haven’t yet, check out how the rest of the STAMPlorations girls used the Typografia stamps in their cards. See you again tomorrow for Day 4!
