Inspired by a Snowflake

Hello. Papertrey Ink is having a Create With Us challenge were their designers made a card and you create one also inspired by their project. Below is Betsy Veldmans's card.
She popped her snowflake up with colored fun foam.
Here is my card.

I used royal blue fun foam. Next time I might use two layers of foam so the color is more visible. Stamps, cardstock and dies are from Papertrey Ink. Ink is Distress Ink. 
Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

Trees, Trees and More Trees

Happy Sunday to you! I am still messing around with My Favorite Things color challenge and the Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up challenge.




Both cards started with a 110 lbs white cardstock stamped with MTF Bold Diagonal Stripe background stamp and the Essentials by Ellen Wonky Backdrop stamps.  I the die cut the trees with Christmas Tree Change Up die set from Papertrey Ink. The banner is die cut with Concord & 9th ribbon banner die. I used foam tape to pop up the banners and the small trees. The trees were all sprayed with Shimmer Spritz.

Ellen's challenge was to use both My Favorite Things and Essentials by Ellen products.

Pastel Wishes

Good morning! I was up early this morning so I thought I would stamp a few cards before getting ready for church. I was working with My Favorite Things color and sketch challenge along with Ellen Huston's Mix It Up challenge.


Ellen's challenge involved using stamps from both Essentials by Ellen and My Favorite Things. I used the MFT Bold Diagonal Stripes background and the EbyE Wonky Backdrops.

Ink Blending

Hello. I am playing with the Altenew November Inspiration Challenge, Addicted to CAS leaves challenge and the ink blending challenge at AAA Cards. First the inspiration photo.

For my card I started with a Strathmore Bristol panel and masked off the area with post-it tape. Then used Distress Ink and blended the three colors together. I stamped the greeting from the Painted Poppy set and embossed the leaves from the Fantasy Floral dies into the panel with my Cuttlebug. Mounted the panel to a chocolate A2 card base.

Skyline

Hey there. I was working on a little ink blending tonight. I took my color way from the My Favorite Things color challenge.

I started with a piece of Strathmore Bristol paper and blends Distress Ink over the panel overlapping the colors to create the skyline. Then die cut the village and banner from white cardstock and mounted them to my blended panel with matte medium.
I heavily missed the panel with Shimmer Spritz. Then mounted it to an A2 white card base. Greeting from Papertrey Ink  is stamped in Palette black ink.
I will enter this card it the MFT #80 color challenge and the AAA Cards ink blending challenge #102.

Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

All My Shades of Gray

Welcome to a beautiful Sunday and no I have not been stamping this morning already. I made this last night. It is from the brand new Concord & 9th Blooms Fill-in stamp set. I was working toward a monochrome card for the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge. Along with the new My Favorite Things sketch challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday anything goes challenge.
I started with a white 4 by 5.25 card panel and stamped the Bloom set with all my shades of gray ink. Then mounted it to a white A2 card base and stamped the greeting from Papertrey Ink in black ink on a .75" scrap of cardstock. I die cut vellum with the coordinating die to the Bloom set. Mounted it all to the card base and added some silver Nuevo drops.


Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
