Doodle Pantry and Challenge Yourself #84

Greetings crafty friends. I am here today with Challenge Yourself #84 - Anything Goes; I have a fun project using a digital image from the Doodle Pantry.

For my project I used the Dirt Rides file. Using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers I had fun coloring this file. I then used the Brother Scan n Cut to cut the image out as well as the sentiment. I used Glossy Accents on the lights. seat and reflectors. I used a few sequins from my friend Kat's shop. The image is affixed with dimensional squares, as is one side of the sentiment. I hope you enjoyed this project as much as I enjoyed making it.

BEE Kind To Bee's

Summer is almost over, school is about to start. Seems like this summer went faster than those in the past, but hey... so does everything these days. 
Today I am happy to share with you the BEE KIND stamp set from Joy Clair Stamps. This card idea came to me as soon as I saw the pre-production photo and could not wait to get this set in my hand to put it to work. 
Take a look at the set and my project and below I will share how it was done. 

Most of my followers know I am a big fan of my Stampoholic Nano. Well what I did with this first was stamped the hive right in the middle of the page and used my Brother Scan n Cut to cut that fun little thing out, I also stamped the bee's and it cut them too... see their awesome little antennae... yeah this machine is great. This was the very first cut made with the machine ten minutes out of the box. SO, after making the cut, I used Fossilized Amber, and Mustard Seed distress inks and ran them all over the card topper. I then after dry stamped the honeycomb and flight path. I then affixed the honeycomb where it needed to be on the card base, ran the topper through my Big Shot to create the stitched look around the edges, and affixed acetate to the back of the card topper, added foam tape around the acetate to add dimension and hold the sequins in. The sequins are a mix called "Bumble Bee", made and sold by my friend Kat her link is in my sidebar. Once my card topper and base were put together I was so happy. It has been a couple of weeks and I could not wait to share this with you today.

Joy Clair August Challenge Butterfly Kisses

Greetings fellow crafters. Today I am here with Joy Clair participating in the August Challenge and am hoping you will participate as well.
With my project I used a new Joy Clair stamp set to have some creative fun. First I used my envelope punch board to make a small envelope for the front of the card. I then stamped the butterfly scatter as if they were flying out of the envelope and colored with my Spectrum Noir markers. I used Versamark ink and stamped the Sending Love sentiment, sprinkled Gold embossing powder and heat set it. A little gold sparkle washi tape finished off the topper and I then mounted my topper on black card stock which I mounted on a gold sparkle card base.

I hope you enjoyed my card as much as I enjoyed making it and sharing. Please upload your Challenge card to the Joy Clair blog by August 31 for your chance to win a $25 gift card to Joy Clair stamps. Don't forget on August 2 we will start our August release blog hop and let me say... this months stamps are AWESOME!!!

Joy Clair July Blog Hop 2016

July is upon us, and here we are looking forward to the fireworks in just a few days. Fourth of July celebrations here in the United States is what inspired my first project for this month.

Using the Uh-Oh Ink Splatter Collection, I was able to come up with this fun project.

First thing I did was grab my handy dandy Stampoholic Nano and place the cardstock so that I would be able to repeat the impression of the paint swipe stamp across three times. Using Stampabilities Royal Blue pigment ink I did the first stamp in the top left corner. Using Craftsmart Red pigment ink I did the swipes. By using the Nano I was able to repeat the impression in the exact spot if the ink didn't clearly transfer. Once this all came together, I used the "You Make Me Brave" sentiment from the "Worship Him" set to finish off the card. I really hope you enjoy my project as much as I enjoyed making it for you. 

Here is another card using the same "Uh-Oh Ink Splatter" stamp set.
Using various colors of Amuse Pigment Inks and sequins from Kat Scrappiness's "Trix" collection this card came together quite quick and easily. The "Love You" came from the "Infinity 2" stamp set. 

While I am at it, we have had such a tragedy hit here in Florida two weeks ago with the attack at the PULSE Nightclub in Orlando. A group of card makers have started making a collection of cards for the victims and their families. Using the Infinity 2 stamp set along with some Tattered Angels Shimmer Sprays, I was able to put this card together... I first stamped the Infinity Symbol and the word Hope using Versamark Ink, heated it with White embossing powder and went to work with the shimmer sprays. Photo's just do not give this card justice. 

If you started with my blog, please go to the Joy Clair blog and start at the beginning, if you already hopped along, then Monica's blog will be your next stop.
