MPS Color Challenge

HEY all..

i created these tags for MY PINK STAMPER color challenge..

2 shades of pink
2 shades of blue

SO I embossed the tags with the snowflake embossing folder from Sizzix (basic gray).. THen i GM'd the tag with two shades of blue (Sapphire & Turquoise blue). I then distressed the edges with pink ink. I cut two snowflakes .. I do not know what cart sorry.. I then distressed the edges with pink. To add the black.. i used Black diamond stickles to rub all across the tag to get into the ridges and put a dot in the center of the snowflake. The ribbons are two shades of pink, blue and a black ribbon.

Hope you like.

Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge: Create a card or layout using an EMBOSSING techniqueYou can either HEAT emboss or DRY emboss {or both if you wanna be fancy}There are no limitations, but if you have Peachy Keen Stamps, you are encouraged to use them!

Annabelle Stamp Challenge: Say it in... GREEN & RED

For this card I used Bazzil Cardstock for the base of my card. The red cardstock is from Kaiser Craft Tis the Season 6x6 pad. I dry embossed with my cuttlebug using a Sizzix folder (new xmas folders that came out this year.) I then applied gold SU shimmer paint to give it some glitz..
The label,holly, santa are from KaiserCraft xmas collection. This was the first timeusing rub on (kaiser craft) and well... I do not know if i liked using it. Hmmm i'm iffy on the way that turned out. The picture is not giving the card justice.. Looks very antiqueish (is that a word?) in person.

well hope you like!

Alyssa is my 8 yo niece who is going on 23... Sooo girly.. so its a girly scary layout. I love the skull with the flower!! the pumpkin is a cut from either doodle charms or Paperdolls. i have a cut left over.. The BOO ghost is a stamp i embossed then i remembered my STICKLES!! so i did that in cinnamon..and stickled the title too!! I like..
when i put the picture in it.. it won't have the brown 4x6 mat.. i just put that so you can see how I'm gonna place the photo i take!! I'll post after Halloween when it has the picture.

2nd project for 9th month of christmas..

Here is my 2nd project for the Ninth day of Xmas challenge over at Life on the ScrapBeach.
In my tag I used all 4 colors: Red, Brown, Orange & Blue.
I used Tattered angel Glimmer Mist: Saphhire, Burnt Red, Peach Delight, Creme De Chocolate.
I wanted a fall tag but got stuck at what else to put on it beside the Fall leaves I embossed with copper. What goes with fall harvest? APPLEs.. IDK looks kind of odd but couldn't find any other stamp to use that incorporates red.
Here is the tag... (i tried)! eeek

Annabelle Stamps Challenge...

Ok.. soo i love doing Annabelle stamps challenges.. Mainly because they have a color challenge & a sketch challenge... Sooo @ times i tend to do both challenges @ one time! As I did today!
This was the Sketch challenge : & the THE SAY IT IN.. Challenge was ORANGE & CHOCOLATE, but for a Christmas Card...hmmmm EEEK... hard i would of thought but... I think I like the way it came out.
I used a 5x7 Chocolate card base then embossed a 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 orange coordinations cardstock and sanded it down. I cut the oval using my cricut and stamped Santa in Chestnut roan colorbox chalk ink and distressed the edges with Tim Holts Distressed ink in corduroy.
The ribbon I used Martha Stewart walnut ribbon which I burned the edges to get that burnt orangy color at the ends then finished the card off with some orange bling. Hope you like..

Another reason i love this website are the stamps still don't have any but hoping one day I will. I just love looking at the DT members creations with t…

annabelle stamps challenge

Ok.. not too happy.. but i was trying out new techniques i've seen this weekend on youtube. The oval image is a demask stamp, it was stamped with soot! Yes.. i said soot! What ya do is get some glossy photo paper, a lite candle and go over the flame with the glossy paper and the soot will appear. Do this several times... once you got the desired amount stamp with a stamp.. then spray aerosal hairspray over it so it won't smudge. I had to do it like 3 times. I had cheap hairspray. Then all I did is put crackle accents over it to give it a crackle finish.

Annabelle Stamps Challenge 24:

The bling i used liquid pearls in pewter. Not very good at using it.. but its an attempt.
Not my best card but like i said.. i was testing out new techniques.
