The first one features Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company soon to be released set on Tuesday called Asian Delights and was made for the Moxie Fab Stamp It Cards Birthday challenge. Before stamping my images, I pulled out my Basic Gray Kioshi designer paper and let the paper plus the designs choose my images and colors used. So keeping that in mind, I stamped the cherry blossom twice in memento tuxedo black ink onto snow storm smooth heavy before coloring with prismacolor markers, then stippling Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink around the main image panel, layered then added some soft lavender brads from my stash. The second cherry blossom I cut out and popped up on pop dots before adding yellow ice stickles for a little extra effect before adding olive gross grain ribbon from Michael's $1 bins with a gold flower clip and then stamping my "Happy Birthday" saying with "hope" from Asian Delights directly onto the designer paper in memento tuxedo black ink.
My second card features the soon to be release set on Tuesday called Hot and Spicy. Gotta love those chili peppers!! There's so much fun stuff that can be done with them. This card is entered into the Moxie Fab Stamp It Cards Love challenge. For this card, I went with a clean and simple design making the saying and my chili pepper couple the center of attention. After stamping everything in memento tuxedo black ink onto MFP snow storm smooth heavy card stock, coloring my peppers with prismacolor markers and then layering, I added a couple of googlie eyes and a bow to give the peppers more "personality". The only other embellishments I added was a sheer black organdy ribbon left over from last years Halloween cards, black baby brads, and then a single chili pepper in the lower right hand corner stamped in red as a last minute thought.
My third card features the new Above The Rest set and is entered in the Moxie Fab Stamp It Cards Hello challenge. My image is stamped in memento tuxedo black ink onto MFP snow storm smooth heavy card stock with Tim Holtz tumbled glass and Adirondack caramel inks stippled around it. After I had layered my main image, I decided last minute to stamp some grass and a bird from Scenic Selections in Tim Holtz forest moss distress ink before adhering my layered image to the card. For a little extra effect, I die cut two sizzix flourishes to add next to my image with gold gem stickers highlighting the flourish ends. The designer paper is from Michael's open stock I bought about 6 years ago knowing I would need it sometime - but 6 years later! However, it fits perfectly!
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.
