Here is the card I created for the PP668 challenge.
Card Base: Pretty Peacock, Designer Paper: Dashing Holiday (Memory Box). Tree Stamp - Unity-November 2023 KOM (Festive Flair. Sentiment stamp - Unity - September 2013 KOM (Happiness has no limit).
So for this card I embossed a partial image of the trees on a piece of Basic White cs with Verdigris embossing powder (PSX - I don't think they are in business any longer). Then I edged it with Gold Pigment ink (Encore) I stamped the sentiment with Pretty Peacock ink and punched it out with an old SU circle punch and layered with a larger circle of the Pretty Peacock cs. I dry embossed the Brushed Gold (retired SU - How I miss that card stock) with the Swiss dot embossing folder. This was layered over the designer paper. I had some ribbons in my stash so I added a couple of those and some new enamel dots (Echo Park). The tag was glued down and I raised the sentiment up with foam dots.
The hard part of this card for me was trying to figure out how to measure and cut the angled piece in the sketch.
Be sure to stop by and check out the DT cards. - Have a great day.
Welcome. I hope you are having a great start to your week.
Today I'm sharing a card for FMS609
My card follows the sketch for the most part. I had an idea in mind and those banners were just hanging me up as I didn't want them to cover my image panel. So hopefully this still meets the challenge.
I'm going to use the holly leaves as my banners and yes I know there are 3 instead of 2 but it just looked better with three leaves.
Details: Card Base, Very Vanilla. Covered with a piece of SU Designer Paper (retired). The strip is the reverse side of the paper.
Stamps used: Tim Holtz Mixed Media purchased at JoAnn's a couple of years ago. I embossed the sentiment with Bold Black embossing powder.
Mounted the sentiment on a rectangle die of Very Vanilla and layered with the Scalloped die of Cherry Cobbler.
Cut out some Holly Leaves and Berries in Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Garden Green. Sentiment and Berries were mounted with foam tape.
Used a punch (EK Success?) and then a strip of Cherry Cobbler to mimic the pierced border at the bottom of the sketch.
That's is. Pretty CAS and one more card in my very small stash of Christmas cards. So many more to go!
Today's card was created for the Color Throwdown #766
I went a little bit out of the box for me on this card.
I wanted to use some of my new stamps from Unity Stamps ( a favorite company of mine) so I chose to use the 3 Circles and the sentiment from the October KOM (Golden glow) and the Wheat image from the September KOM (Harvest Hues) along with the October Background of the Month (Woodgrain Whisper)
Click to enlarge image. For some reason the screen is giving off a more turquoise look to the blue but it's really not turquoise.
Details: Card Base - Only Orange (retired SU) then a layer of Balmy Blue card stock stamped with the background stamp in Balmy Blue.
The Wheat was stamped on Very Vanilla card stock with Crumb Cake Ink. Then I stamped the circles over it with Only Orange & Balmy Blue inks. I distressed the edges with the Only Orange ink and a distressing tool. The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I added 3 light blue gems and mounted the panel on an angle with foam mounting tape to complete the card.
I'm not sure what style of card you'd call this, Grunge, Distressed, Eclectic? - What would you say the style is?
Anyway I really like how it turned out and hope you do as well.
Below is the card I created for this challenge.
I had the card base done and the Spider Tag. The rest I added to complete my card.
Lots of parts/pieces went into this one.
Card Stock: Cajun Craze. Layered with a piece of Designer paper from, Echo Park (Something Wicked - 2021)
That tags were cut with an Amuse Studio Die
One was cut from the Cajun Craze card stock and has a piece of patterned plaid paper (Carta Bella - Welcome Autumn 2021). A punched spider and a piece of a spider web border. I added the ribbon (American Crafts) and stapled it down. The sentiment is from Unity Stamps (Creepin' it Real) stamp set.
The second tag was cut with a piece of the Something Wicked Designer paper. I added a Vellum Ghost that I stamped on heavy vellum with Bold Black embossing powder and cut out. The Ghost is part of a stamp set from Echo Park (Halloween Party). I added some eyeball washi tape and frayed pumpkin pie ribbon. The tags were mounted with foam tape. I even used very tiny pieces of the tape to mount the ghost.
That's my take on the sketch. I hope you enjoy what I've created.
