Brown Tree???

Hi again.  This card started with two challenges. Papertrey Ink Make-it-Monday #135 Layered Emboss Resist challenge and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Clearly Besotted challenge.  I started with a Rustic Cream card base and stamped a bunch of little stamps from the Merry Little Christmas (CB) set all over the card with Fine Linen ink.  Then I heat embossed the tree from Tree Trimming Trio with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder.  I also die cut post-its with the large scallop die and covered part of the card and rubbed Versamark ink over and heat embossed the bottom portion.  Stamped the snowflake ornaments with Fine Linen ink and embossed them.  I then took Dark Chocolate ink and rubbed it over the whole card. Punched holes on the scallops and threaded ribbon through.  I am wishing I would have stamped some woodgrain over the brown area.  I may still go back and do that.  Thanks for stopping by, Sentimentally Sue.

Yep, it made a big difference!
Thanks again!!

Merry Besotted Christmas

Hello.  This was a fun card to make.  I started with Papertrey Ink white cardstock.  I used a stamp set from Clearly Besotted called Merry Little Christmas and grouped a bunch of little images and words to create a block stamp.  Then stamped it across the panel with Ballet Blue ink from Stampin Up.  I them took a set from PTI called Snowflake Medley and stamped it in Versamark ink over the words.  Heat embossed it with clear powder and using the backside of the snowflake images stamped them in Spring Rain ink from PTI.  I layered the panel on navy cardstock and tied a nay ribbon around it.  All mounted on a PTI white card base.  I thought this was a fun twist to the MIM #135 Layered Emboss Resist technique.
I will also be entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of Rubber or Clear stamps with a focus on Clearly Besotted stamps.
Thanks again for dropping by,

Case Study #161 and a few other challenges...

 Howdy!  Below was the inspiration for my card.  It is from the Case-Study Challenge Blog.

Now onto my card.  I started with PTI's white cardstock and stamped the little flowers from the With Sympathy set in Pure Poppy ink.  Then overstamped the Polka Dot Basics with Versamark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I then rubbed Aqua Mist ink over the dots.  Stamped the greeting from the Big & Bold Greeting set in aqua ink and added a few poppy flowers.  The stitching is from an old unmarked set stamped in black.  I secured the greeting with washi tape and added the ribbon (SU) with Score Tape. Accented the flower with small rhinestone and a little glitter.

I will be entering this card in several challenges-
Case-Study #161
CAS-Friday #117- real or faux stitching
MIM #135- Layered Emboss Resist

Thanks for stopping by, Sentimentally Sue.

Boo to you!

Hey there!  One more Halloween card.  I started with a PTI white card and stamped the small moon and stars in Summer Sunrise ink. Then stamped the greetings (Martha Stewart) in Versamark ink, heat embossed with clear powder.  Sponged Orange Zest ink over the embossing on the right side of card and Sunrise ink in the left side.  Black spider (SU) was stamped in black ink before the embossing. Then I stamped the faux stitching lines around images in black ink.

The MIM #135 challenges was Layered Emboss Resist.

The Less is more #141 challenge is a spooky one layer card.
CAS-Friday Challenge was real or faux stitching.

Simon Says Stamp challenge was clear or rubber stamped projects.

Thanks for taking time to stop by, Sentimentally Sue.


Hello people!  Hope you are having a great Saturday!  It is beautiful here in Iowa today. For my first card today I started with a True Black card from Papertrey Ink and stamped the spiders (SU) in white ink.  Heat set them then stamped the Eeeek from Martha Stewart in Versamark ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Rubbed some white ink over the greeting to make it pop and stamped the stitching lines with white ink around the edges. I used a white pencil to highlight the greeting.  I was going for the chalkboard look.  I need to work on this, it's a little rough!
I am going to enter this card in several challenges listed below:
Make-it-Monday #135- Layered Emboss Resist
Simon's Wednesday Challenge- Rubber stamped project
Less is More #141: one layer spooky
CAS-Friday #117- Real or faux stitching
Thanks for stopping by!
