PIP Challenge #2135

 This week for Pammie's Inky Pinkies challenge we are being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.

                                                 

There is an extra element to the challenge this week.  It is to be clean and simple.  You will see the description of how to do that on Pammie's blog.  

I started out by printing off the adorable triple rose image and colored it with my copic markers.  I decided to use some washi tape on my card for a little extra look.  Then I added the butterfly and scroll to my card.  This would definitely be an easy card to create.

Thanks for stopping by.

Challenge Your Stash

 Maggie had a great challenge for us this month over in our Challenge Your Stash group on Splitcoaststampers.  She challenged us to use dies and punches on our card - No stamps.  Well I have tons of dies and that hard part was deciding which set to use.


I have to admit that this die has not been in my stash long but I have been looking for a reason to use it.  The background is a pierced lattice cutting plate from Taylored Expressions.  The flower is called Layered coneflower by Honey Bee and the Hello is from Pink Fresh.

I cut the flowers out of Tim Holtz Watercolor paper and inked them up with my Distress oxides.  The stem I fussy cut and guessed on the size. 

What a fun challenge.  I just may have to use this technique again.  I do love my flowers.

Inky Paws Challenge

 I am a big fan of Newtons Nook Designs.  Their stamps are just the cutest and are always my go to stamp when I am looking to make a card.   I wanted to make a card for the Inky Paws Challenge this week.  The challenge this week is a color challenge and these colors are one of my favorite combinations.

For my card today I wanted to try something a little different.  I have seen on other cards where they actually use their copic markers to color the background.
I used the stamp set Peony Blooms for my card.  I started this card by stamping the image on each corner with my Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink and used clear embossing powder on top of the black ink.  This gives it a raised effect and makes it easier to color in the lines.  The sentiment I stamped and fussy cut out.  
These were the copic colors I used on my card.  I sure used alot of ink coloring the background.  It also gives a different look to it.  I want to try black next time and really make the image pop.  I used a white gel pen to highlight the lighter parts of the flower.

I hope you enjoyed my card.  I sure had fun giving a different technique a try.

PIP Challenge #2133

 It is hard to think that fall is right around the corner with the hot temperatures we are having.  But fall will soon be here with all the gorgeous colors.  This week Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge is being sponsored by Jan's Digital Stamps.

                                         

The image I am using for my card is "Fall Note".  

I printed the image off and colored it with my copic markers.  The sentiment for the inside is from Pretty Pink Posh - Fall Signs.  The designer papers worked perfect with this image.  It is called Hocus Pocus from P13.

Be sure and check out Jan's Digital Stamps because I noticed on her website that all of her pumpkin stamps are 25% off for the month of August.  So grab your favorite pumpkin digital stamp now.

I would like to enter the card in the following challenges:

PIP Challenge #2131

 Happy Monday!  August is here and so are the dog days of summer.  Getting a small break from the hot weather this week so we are enjoying it.  

Time for another Challenge over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies.  This weeks challenge is being sponsored by Star Stampz.  

For my card today I decided to use the stamp "Beach Days" because it is still all about summer and fun in the sun.

The designer papers are "Splash" from Echo Park.  It seemed to work well with my fun in the sun theme.  I colored this adorable image with my copic markers.  The circle die is called Folk Edge Circles by Pink Fresh.  I added a little bit of yellow ribbon and a few enamel dots to accessorize the card.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure and check out what the rest of the design team did with the adorable images this week over at PIP Challenges.
