Color Me Friday 29-2019

Our colors this month are Red, White & Blue.


This was an experiment with heat embossing in bright white and then using Distress Inks.  The embossing resists the color (and I also rub it off) to make it stand out.  I used a red and a blue on the fireworks and then used black around the edges to make it look like night. After it dried all night, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed it with Bright White Embossing Powder.  The girl was stamped and colored with Spectrum Noir markers and then fussy cut and glued to the front.  All of the stamps are from the Unity stamp kit called Celebrate the New. I put ut on a black card base because it looked better than white. - Denise

Inspiration Thursday 29-2019

I love our inspiration picture for this month.


Here is my card -



Since this month was a hectic one for me with vacations (I know it is hard to sympathize, lol) I let my papers do a lot of the work for my cards.  This one started with flag paper from a Peebles stack called Americana and backed it with another print from the same pad.  I cut a simple image of an old fashioned truck from the Cricut cartridge called Heritage.  Using beige card stock with a couple of colors of brown Distress Ink and a blender gave it a vintage look. The Thank You is from an old unknown stamp that I have had quite awhile.  I like how it follows the curve of the truck. - Denise

Sketch It Wednesday 29-2019

We are working with this sketch for the month of July.


I decided this would be a good chance to use one of my many paper pads that have coordinating paper.  I chose a 4.5 x 6.5 pad called Cape Cod by The Paper Studio.  The measurements on the sketch make it very easy to cut and put together.  I used several patterns and arranged them in various groups for four different cards.


These were really easy to put together and I stamped the Thank You from a CTMH kit called Have a Happy Day.  The images on the larger circle were part of the paper which saved stamping.  All I had to do was center the image in my die before running through my Cuttlebug. I love the nautical theme. - Denise
