Ghoulish Grunge for WWYS #84

Who says you have to use a “Halloween” stamp set to make a Halloween card? My card for this week’s What Will You Stamp? Challenge shows a totally different way to use this raggedy netting image from the Ghoulish Grunge set, and it’s far from scary! It’s bright and colourful and looks very delicate when stamped in rainbow colours.

Here’s a visual of all the images in the stamp set. If you’d like to join in the fun and submit your own card using the Ghoulish Grunge Stamp set, just click on the image to go to the WWYS Challenge Blog. And you can check out the inspiration from the other Design Team members too! We’d love it if you could join us.

Sometimes if I have cut a strip of cardstock from an A4 sheet for another project, but the piece that is left is a little narrower or wider than my usual card base size of 14.9cm (if cut widthways) or 10.5cm (if cut lengthways), I will just use the whole piece rather than waste it. So this card is a smidgen wider than I would normally make. If it doesn’t fit into a standard envelope – hey, I’ll make my own with the Envelope Punch Board and some pretty Envelope Paper! So here are the exact measurements. Notice too, that I’ve attached the front panel so that it’s flush with the bottom for something a little bit different. I did start with a larger piece and cut it down a little; I like to do that when I’m not sure how the images will fit. So here are the measurements for you:

When I started to make this card, I really had no fixed concept of how it should look, but it was fun seeing what I could come up with. I used the rock ‘n’ roll technique to add some dimension to the netting image by inking the sides with a darker shade of ink, and I also used the kissing technique with the flourish image from the First Sight Stamp Set. This is also where the sentiment comes from. I decided that a straight strip of the washi tape (from the Pop Of Pink suite) didn’t suit the style of this card, so I tore the piece in half lengthways and placed them with the (outside) straight edges together. A little linen thread wrapped around a few times finished it off nicely. I was happy with the end result. What do you think?

Sweet Home for WWYS #83

Hello and welcome to another WWYS Challenge! This week the stamp set we’re highlighting is Sweet Home. You can buy this set with framelits as a bundle and create 3D houses, however I’ve paired the cute little house with some images from Thoughtful Branches (which is still available to purchase) to create this adorable little ‘home in the forest’ scene.

sweet-home-1

I love that this house can be a spooky Halloween house, a gingerbread house, or a cute little country house, 3D or 2D – so versatile! I’ve used the “thumping” technique to achieve the mottled effect on the tree foliage. And the adorable little curtain is a piece of one of our delicate doilies. I’ve also added some washi from the Affectionately Yours suite along the bottom of the card.

Here’s a pic of all the images in this stamp set.

Hello and welcome! This week’s WWYS (What Will You Stamp?) Challenge is to use the In the Meadow stamp set. Here’s the card I made:

In the Meadow-1

I went with a cameo style using our new Layering Ovals Framelits and created a sunset scene with the tree from the In the Meadow stamp set. The sentiments from the same set got the “signpost” treatment. Below is a picture of the full set.

Sweet Cupcake for WWYS #78

Happy Monday everyone! It’s time for another WWYS (What Will You Stamp?) Challenge, and this week we’re playing with cupcakes! Well, not REAL cupcakes (although that would be nice), but the Sweet Cupcake Stamp Set – here’s the one I baked made:

Sweet Cupcake-1

Yum! I love this stamp set, and how cute is that little loopy die?! If you buy the bundle together, you save 10% AND you can cut out your cupcake, the loopy thingy and the adorable banner I’ve used as well. Here’s pics of both:

#76 Party with Cake

 

Despite being simple though, there’s lots of dimension on this card (in the layers and the focal image too), and lots of sparkle! I’m loving the new Layering Circle Framelits. How about you?

And I prettied up the inside as well.

Foxy Friends for WWYS #75

Hello and welcome to another WWYS Challenge.  This week we’ve been given the challenge to use the Foxy Friends Stamp Set. Challenge?  Heck no!  This set is fun and adorable – and versatile too.  You get 29 – yes, 29 images in the set, so there’s lots of room for creating different animals and scenes.  It could be used for just about any occasion, and it comes with a punch.  I bought the bundle and saved 10%.  To see what the rest of the Design Team came up with for this challenge, head on over to the What Will You Stamp Blog.  If you have this set we’d love it if you could join us.  You’d be inspiring us and other crafters all over the world!  And you might just be a winner! How awesome is that?

#75 Foxy Friends

Here’s my card.  I made this one for a customer and she has received it now, so no spoiler!

Foxy Friends-1

I’ve used the same colours as the co-ordinating DSP Stack – Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Pool Party,
Smoky Slate and Whisper White.  A little dash of Cucumber Crush for the leaves makes this little scene pop.  The gorgeous sentiment comes from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.

Jar of Love for WWYS #73

This week’s WWYS Challenge stamp set is Jar of Love.  This set is simply adorable.  Besides flowers, you can fill your jar with fireflies, goldfish, or as I chose to do, with confetti.  You could also fill them with images from other stamp sets too.  I’ve seen jars with fairies and frogs to name a couple.  This is a big set with lots of images, giving you lots of creative options.


#73 Jar of Love

 

And here’s the card I created:


Jar of Love-1

 

As you can see, my design is totally inspired by the sentiment.  I’ve used some washi tape from the Pop of Pink and Affectionately Yours packs along the bottom of the panel.  I’ve also used the new Layering Circles Framelits set for the sentiment.  A little bit of copper heat-embossing adds some pizzazz and we’re done!  A simple, quick and fun card.  🙂

You’re Sublime for WWYS #72

This week’s WWYS Challenge stamp set is You’re Sublime.  This set is so sweet – I love all the images.  I chose to use the submarine to emphasise the SUBlime.  LOL

You're Sublime

And here’s my card:

You're Sublime Card-1

I’ve used the wave-like die from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Die set for the sea.  I cut one from Pool Party coloured vellum and one from Pacific Point cardstock.  The sub was coloured with markers in Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, Pool Party and Pumpkin Pie (that’s a lot of P’s!)  The sea, bubbles and fish had some Clear Wink of Stella applied to make them glisten.  And that’s it!

Falling Flowers Card

Our challenge stamp set this week over at WWYS is Falling Flowers. Love, love, love this stamp set!

#71 Falling Flowers

And here’s what I created:


Falling Flowers Card-1

This was the first time I played with this set and I just adore it.  I also love to use black and white.  The look you get is classic and clean.  The sentiment is from the Suite Sayings Stamp Set – such a versatile set for many occasions and I love this particular sentiment.
