Just 3 Very Different Cards

Hello. Yes, Instagram is still giving me fits. So here are three cards that I wanted to enter in a few challenges. This first card is for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge "touchy feely". Tons of texture with staples, paper clip, washi tape, heat embossing and brads all with a roughed up edge.


The next card is for the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge using the Thankful Thoughts set.

My final card uses the Trigonometry and Lavender Bud set. My color palette and flower are from the September Inspiration Challenge. The Timeout Challenge is a garden theme. 

Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

In the Garden

Hey there. Instagram is not cooperating again and won't let me link anything. So this is a card I made for 3 challenges.

My card uses the colors from the Altenew challenge and the sets Halftone Squares and Lavender Bud sets. The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is "touchy feely" the texture of the Dymo lable, ribbon, washi tape and Nuvo drops all added to my card a tactile effect. The Timeout Challenge Inspired by words fits the bill with my flower image. Thanks for stopping by, Sue.


National Coffee Day Hop

 Hey there! Over on the Stamplorations Blog we are joining in with the National Coffee blog hop to inspire you.

I created three cards with some great Stamplorations product. You will want to comment on Stamplorations' blog post for a chance to win some fun coffee themed products!

I wanted to play with acrylic paint. I used terracotta paint with a one inch brush to create brushstrokes on several panels.

This card started with a white top folding card that I stamped the coffee beans in chocolate brown ink.  Using my chocolate brown panel I stamped the cup from the After Coffee set in the same brown ink over the acrylic paint. Then gold heat embossed the With Coffee greeting over the top and mounted it to my card front with foam tape for dimension.

My second card I stamped with the Literary Caffeine-ations set down the side of another acrylic paint panel. Then stamped and cut out the center of the coffee mug from the After Coffee set to create a shaker card with real coffee grounds. The card base was a white top folding stamped with the same mug in chocolate brown ink. I added a few olive green accent pieces to make it pop.

With my final acrylic paint panel I heat embossed the coffee image from the Sweet Kindness set over the paint with gold detail powder. Then colored in the image with water based markers and mounted to a chocolate brown card base.

There are some super talented girls on the Stamplorations Blog sharing their ideas with you. I hope you will go show them some love!
