It’s Debra here with  my post for April and I’m using a stamp set that I have been wanting to ink up for quite awhile. I made a card to thank everyone for their support this past week after the loss of my beloved cat, Anna. We had her for 13 years and lost her after a sudden illness. I have always loved cat images, coffee cups, stamp sets, etc.. Now I will just be the crazy cat lady without any cats.. My friends have been amazing and this card is for all of them. I could never thank them enough for their kind words, cards and support. And that’s where this card comes in. I hope you all like it.

  • I started with a “sprinkle” background card base by Paperlove and adhered a strip of Hazel & Ruby scalloped washi tape along the top edge.
  • The 2 images from Bras #1 were stamped with Memories India Black Ink. The bra/hanger was stamped on Kraft and the sentiment on Neenah Stardust White cardstock . This is my favorite cardstock – it has small colored flecks in the paper and I just love it !!
  • I also stamped the bra on a scrap of pink paper and cut the image out. It was mounted on top of the kraft image using Tombow MONO Aqua Liquid Glue. I used a White PITT Big Brush Pen to highlight the “lace” on the bra, then added a heart-shaped rhinestone. Other coloring was done with a combo of Distress markers and PITT Artist Pens.
  • The sentiment was mounted on a scrap of gold glitter paper, then adhered to the bottom of the card. I popped up the bra image above the sentiment using foam dots.

Thank you for visiting the SSD blog. I hope you are inspired by my card to create something yourself. Make a card to thank a friend for being there for you. I would need to quit my day job in order to make as many cards as I need to thank ALL of my friends.. I am one lucky gal to have each and every one of them.

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you a technique that I love: Sponging with classic ink. I made this card using two stamp sets from Skipping Stones Designs: Imagine and Hearty Hello. Take a look at my card:

Imagine and Hearty Hello

 

To create the background of this card I used four different colors of Classic Ink that I applied with jumbo daubers.

First I created a masking area to concentrate the color. I first applied Sky Blue Classic Ink on the left side, then I continued with Marina Mist, Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant. I applied the ink in circular form with jumbo daubers, just like we would with a blending tools or sponges. Sponging with classic ink is a very fun and simple technique.

Then I stamped at the same time the butterfly from the Imagine stamp set and the Hello word from the Hearty Hello stamp set, both from Skipping Stones, using Versafine Imperial Purple and my Mini Misti.

Imagine and Hearty Hello

 

With the cross stitched border from Stitched Bordes from Lawn Fawn I cut the top and bottom borders and I pasted the layer directly over the card base. As a final touch I added some tiny dots created with Silver Moondust Glitter Drops from Nuvo Crystal Drops.

This is a very clear and beautiful card and you can change the colors of classic ink and find beautiful combinations that you will love! These two stamp sets come with different images and words that are perfect for this purpose.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope my project inspired you! Sponging with classic Ink is really fun!

See you soon!

Debra here with my March post. It’s one of my favorite times of the year. The Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop runs from March 24 – March 31 so I chose my post to coincide with that. I love coffee and coffee cups and coffee cards and coffee washi — well, you get the picture !! Skipping Stones Design has some fun coffee sets and I used a few in my card for you today. The theme for the Blog Hop is Spring so I went wild with the Spring colors and papers. I will be linking this card up to the Hop.

I sat down to make this card with absolutely NO idea except that I wanted Spring and coffee reflected in the design. I am pretty pleased with myself. I really do love how it turned out !! I hope you are inspired to make a Spring card or even to just make a cup of coffee !! I will see you again next month.. Thank you for visiting the Skipping Stones Design Blog.

BRAS VOLUME #1

Martha Lucia Gomez Blog, Inspiration, Martha Lucia Gomez Hernandez, Samples 1 Comment

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here with you!

Bras are like friends is the card that I have to share with you today. I made this card using the stamp set Bras Volume #1 from our Skipping Stones Store and this is definitely a special set. Take a look at my card:

To create this card I used Versafine Onix Ink and Clear Embossing Powder.

  1. Take a piece of Whisper White card stock and stamp the images of two of the bras from the stamp set Bras Volume #1 using Versafine Onix ink. Cover the images with clear embossing powder and melt the powder with the heat tool.
  2. Color the details of bras using a pink marker.
  3. Stamp the sentiments from the same stamp set on the top of the paper using Versafine Onix ink and clear embossing powder. Melt the powder with the heat tool.
  4. Create a faux watercolor using distress ink and aquapinter over the sentiment.
  5. Cut a decorated frame and paste over the stamped layer with On point Glue. I used the Loopy Rectangle Dies from Gina Marie Designs.
  6. Paste the decorated layer with dimensionals over the card base using dimensionals.
  7. Finalize the decorations adding some little sequins.

Pretty cool!

What do you think? I would love to hear what you think below. But between you and me I think that Bras are like friends!

Thank you for stopping by and see you soon!

  • add splatters with gold from the same watercolor set
  • stamp the sentiment from the Klartext-Stempel Lasse & Peer set with Versafine (Onyx Black)

Hi Everyone,

Cornelia here today with my card, using this adorable set called Buns-N-Crunches. It has some truly yummy images and wonderful sentiments!

SSD 2-2017 a

This is the complete set! So may possibilities here! I especially love all those different sentiments.

buns-n-crunches

I stamped, masked and heat embossed the muffins and colored them with watercolor pens. I then fuzzy cut the bottom and glued it over a piece of Designer Paper. Added the sentiment.

Happy Stamping!
