Make It Monday #232: Layered Stamping on Kraft

Hi! I’m here with a card for this week’s Make It Monday with Dawn.

 I’d like to play this at SSS Wednesday Challenge Blog’s: Simon Says “Anything Goes” and Word Art Wednesday’s Challenge #211: Anything Goes. I CASED one of my own cards from last Christmas as inspiration for my design. I’d also like to play this card at Emerald Creek Dares Challenge: Bringing Bits of Cheer, The Card Concept’s Challenge #44: Festive Glory  ( I think that this card could be categorized as Clean & Graphic or maybe Classy & Elegant?) and at Always Playing with Paper’s Challenge #52 {Create a Christmas Card}.IMG_1203editedI’m really enjoying using this technique of stamping with white on kraft. I adapted the technique and used it to make a card with a hand sketched holly design and water coloring. If you’d like to, you can see it here.

Here’s a slideshow of how I made this card:

 All stamps and the die are Papertrey Ink products. While you’re here I thought you might to have a peek at a fun card I made with some other Papertrey Ink products. I’m very pleased with this card! Click on the photo if you’d like to be taken to the post where I share this and 3 other owl cards.  Hooray! Hooray! Hooray! 🙂

PTI November 2015 Blog Hop Challenge

Hi! I have a non-traditionally colored Christmas card to share with you today. It was inspired by PTI’s November Blog Hop inspiration photo.

 I’d also like to play this at SSS Wednesday Challenge Blog’s: Simon Says “Anything Goes” and Word Art Wednesday’s Challenge #211: Anything Goes. This card was also inspired by the technique used in this week’s Make It Monday video by Dawn. Instead of using Kraft, I stamped with white on a light gray.  (I made a different card for this week’s MIM. You can click here or click on the next photo to go to the post for that card.)

I used PTI’s Fall Florals, Joyful Christmas and You’ve Been Framed:Hexagon to make 2 versions of this card.

Sketching Holly

Hi! I’m here with a post for CASEplorations Inspiration Project Post #48

and SSS Wednesday Challenge Blog’s: Simon Says Christmas. I’d also like to play along at Word Art Wednesday’s Challenge #211: Anything Goes.

Recently, I have been enjoying stamping with white ink on Kraft. I love Kim’s card for CASEplorations Inspiration Project #48.

Here’s my card:

Mine is a very similar design to Kim’s. For my card though, I actually did NOT STAMP, but did a sketch instead. I’d also like to play this card at Emerald Creek Dares: Bringing Bits of Cheer and The Card Concept’s Challenge #44: Festive Glory  ( I think that this card could be categorized as Clean & Graphic.) and Always Playing with Paper’s Challenge #52 {Create a Christmas Card}.

IMG_1071editedHere’s a slide show of some of the process.
