AAA Card Challenge #47 - Embossing!

Hi everyone,

I'm playing along with the AAA Cards Challenge # 47 - Embossing.  I'm also tickled to say that I am one of the new Design Team members!!!  Yay!!!!

Now on with my card!

I cut out a banner and heat embossed the pineapple background with white embossing powder.  I then used versafine onyx black to stamp the pineapple image and heat embossed that with clear powder and coloured it in with distress inks and popped it up with foam tape.  

I cut out a piece of brown paper and heat embossed the sentiment in white powder and adhered it with my tape runner. 

To finish it off I punched two little wholes in the top of the banner and tied a bow with some brown twine and added some sequins.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!!

I used a curved die to cut the bottom of the card and popped up a piece of slate card stock under that to give it dimension 

I used a slate ink for the snowflakes on the white card stock and a white pigment ink on the slate card stock.   I stamped the sentiment from the Merry & Bright set in slate ink as well.

You Make My Tail Wag - Bookmark

Hi everyone,

I'm back with a bookmark project for you today.  

I started out with the MFT stitched rectangle stax dies and extended the cutting to give me a longer rectangle.  

I used the "You Make My Tail Way" stamps and dies and cut and coloured this cutie pie.  He just puts a smile on your face doesn't he?

I stamped the sentiment in Memento black along with a paw print and image from the set.  I coloured him in with copics (E23, E25, E37) and used the dot detail technique to give him some dimension.   I adhered him on to the bookmark with my tape runner and added a small whole at the top and added some nature twine.

Thanks for stopping by!

Be sure to stop by the SHOP  because the Lawn Fawn Fall/Winter Release will be in stock soon.  It's AWESOME!  

See you again!

Hello - MFT

Hi everyone,

I posted a pic on Instagram the other day of my Butterfly Reflections Ink haul with lots of MFT goodies and here is the one of the cards I made.

I used copics to colour in the adorable boot from the MFT Gnome set and took a white gel pen to add some small highlights.  I used the MFT herringbone brink stencil and blended in some blue ink.  

I cut out the front panel with the MFT In & Out diagonal stitched rectangle dies and adhered that onto  blue card stock.  

I popped the image up with foam tape as well as the banner with the sentiment from the stamp set.  
I then added a few enamel dots to finish it off.

Stay tuned from some exciting news coming soon!!!!!!  ;)

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon.

SSD - Happy Birthday

Hello everyone,

I'm here on the Skipping Stones Design blog today with a birthday card.

I used the feather from the Victorian Summer stamp set.  When I say this I immediately thought of a falling feather when kids have a pillow fight so I thought I would do something similar.

I used three different shades of ink and the stamped them as if they are falling from the sky.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Dandelion Dreams set along the side instead of straight across to give it some interest and to finish it off I took a gel pen and drew on the 

Thanks so much for stopping by, see you again soon!!
