SAF 2015: Make it Work

6a00d8341c64e753ef01b7c7bf73a1970b-450wi

We've made it to our last Stamp-a-faire project of the day. This one is a good one!  I have a project that I started for the August release and then didn't love where it was going.....

So for this challenge it was to make it work.  I continued to work on it and changed it up a bit to this....

That big piece of Smokey Shadow bothered me so I changed it up one more time and got this....

The leaves are stamped in Spring Moss to match the card base.  I used Scribbled Sentiments on the first try so for this card, I fussy cut out each letter.  I added in some scored smokey shadow on try 2.0, so on this one I cut that down into a smaller strip.  I think I like version 3.0 better!

Now I am tempted to go back and get that Unconventional Materials challenge card and make it work.  I don't love that one so I am going to have to go in there and do some work!  lol

I hope that you have had a fun day and I am so glad you could hang out with all of us.  Stop over to Nichole's blog to see the wrap up for the day.  There is still more time to play along so pick a challenge and jump in, if you haven't started yet.

Have a great rest of your day! 



SAF 2015: Runway Challenge


6a00d8341c64e753ef01b7c7bf73a1970b-450wi

It's Runway Challenge time!  We all have chosen different Runway looks for inspiration for a card.  First off, here is the photo I chose....

To pull off this look, I knew instantly I would use Garden Grace for the flowers and fined look.

I stamped the first layer in Berry Sorbet and the outline in Pure Poppy.  The leaves are Simply Chartreuse.  I added in the sentiment in True Black and to finish it off, I cut the card front at an angle and added it to the card base with foam backing.  I felt like that angle also mimicked the dress in the inspiration photo.  I did add some Rainstones to give it a little more detail.

Head on over to Nichole's blog to see what the rest of the team has for us today.  You can also see all the details on how to play along too!  Thanks for stopping in!

SAF 2015: Unconventional Materials Challenge

6a00d8341c64e753ef01b7c7bf73a1970b-450wi
Are you have a blast today?  So many fun challenges today and I hope you have had time to play along.  The next challenge up is Unconventional Materials.  I like to think of myself as a DIY around the house type girl.  I love to build and I do love to spend time in Lowe's.  That being said, I just new I was going to find something super fun to create a card with.  Well, I did come up with anything to use ON my card but I did find a couple things to use in actually making the card.  First up, here is my card.... I like to call it "tiling in process".  Maybe a thank you card for a contractor or a fix it guy!

I used some white Wendy Vechi Embossing paste and then used a Sheet Flooring Adhesive spreader to make a little textured space at the top of the card.  For the bottom of the card, I inked up the Stripping Pad with some Enchanted Evening ink and pressed the card base right down on top.  It gave it a fun texted, speckley look.  I wanted to add a bold Thank you so I finished the card off with "thanks" at the bottom of the card.

Now it's your turn!  I can't wait to see what everyone creates!  Stop over to Nichole's blog to see the rest of the days activities!  There is still time!  :)

SAF 2015: Patterns Challenge


6a00d8341c64e753ef01b7c7bf73a1970b-450wi
Alright!  It's time for the next Stamp-a-faire challenge!  This time you have lots of fun card patterns to choose from.   Here is a Go-To Card Pattern for my card....

Laurie

Here is my original card....

IMG_0816

And today I have 2 new cards using this pattern...

IMG_1730

This first card uses Lexi's Superhero Stamp set.  I used the dies from the Clipsters Kit for the littler banners, stamping the polka backgrounds after doing a little ink blending on each banner.  I added each banner to a paperclip and popped them up on foam tape.  I scored my card base, as usual, every half inch and then added the card front in with more foam tape.  

IMG_1731

I used Maile's Bubble Talk for this next card using the same pattern....

IMG_1703

I added in some ombre stamping on the speech bubbles and then lined them up according to the pattern.  I added in the sentiment last and kept this one nice and simple.  

IMG_1704

Lots more to see for sure!  Stop over to Nichole's blog and catch up on all there is to see.  

Stop back by soon for another challenge!  :)

SAF 2015: Bridal Challenge

6a00d8341c64e753ef01b7c7bf73a1970b-450wi
Welcome to Stamp-a-faire!  Are you so excited for this day full of fun challenges?  The first challenge is up over on Nichole's blog and its all about Weddings....and white!  This one makes me happy because you probably know how I do love me some white space!  :)  Here is my all white (mostly), modern, CAS, wedding card....

IMG_1688

I used Cover Plate: Stripes Horizontal for the background on top of the white card base.  I popped the cover plate up with stripes of foam tape for dimension.  

IMG_1690

I heat embossed the "Mr" and "Mrs" from Grand Ampersand and added in the Ampersand die to the vellum banner.  The banner is from the bottom of the Wine Bottle Tag die.  I attached it inside the top of the cover plate.  

IMG_1693

I took so many pictures because it was hard to get a good pic of all the white.  And when I said (mostly) white before?  Well, I cheated just a tiny bit.  On the back of the vellum tag, behind the ampersand....I added the slightest hint of pink chalk.  Now if you scroll back up and look, I bet you can see it....Shhhhh....don't tell anyone!  :)  

IMG_1692

I can't wait to see what you create in the all White Wedding theme this morning!  Do you get to play along?  I hope so!

See you soon for more challenges!  :)
