Art Impression Cut your card

I have been playing a lot with my new try fold stamp set and yes I wish I had the Halloween one now (just wish my local scrapbook store would carry it) OK so lets talk about this card.  I followed the instructions and colored with copics I then layered on a red card base and then I added the background paper for the inside of the card and cut around it again should have done this when I cut the first time but we will call it a learning experience.  Thanks Art Impressions!!  Art Impressions challenge

Box Fold Card

So I got this new stamp set from Art Impressions.  It is a tryfold set and then I was looking on youtube watching videos and I saw this fold up box card so I thought about it and here it is.  Now the gifts on the left of the card is a partial stamp still from my new Tryfold set it was just too tall so I kind of cut out a part of it to fit my card.  In the images you can see that the card folds so that you can mail it although it still kind of wants to pop open in the photo.  This was a really fun although time consuming.  All stamps are Art Impressions.

I am entering in the Art Impressions cut your card challenge Art Impressions challenge
and the NBUS challenge NBUS (never been used stuff) challenge my NBUS is my art impressions stamp set.

Thanks for looking

MarkerPop Challenge Fall

I found a new challenge for me to enter today called MarkerPop.  They have a great shop with tons of stamps and accessories.  The challenge this time is Fall and you must use copics or other markers that they carry in the store.  I love my copics so I got together my fall colors.  The stamp is by Susanna's stamps.  Don't go looking for it because I'm sure that it was retired years ago but has always been one of my favorite.  Thanks for looking and their challenge can be found here.  MarkerPop Challenge

Cupcake Inspirations 326

I found a cool challenge yesterday.  It shows a cupcake and you can follow the theme or color of the cupcakes.  I picked the colors of navy, green and white.  I had never used this paticular stamp by stampavie before but the green reminded me of this dragon so it called pulled out for use today.  I colored with copics and actually had to color twice as the first one had an ink accident BOO  So thanks for looking,  There challenge is here.  cupcake inspirations

Hero Arts Makeover Challenge Owls

I have posted some other Hero Arts makeovers but they are so fun who can stop??  This time I used this stacked owl stamp that I have of course by Hero Arts.  I first made a sort of Halloween card.  Really the only Halloweenie thing about it is the colors.  I colored with copics.  Then I decided these owls are so versatile I can make a fall card so I made a fall background with distress inks and then embossed my owls on top.  Which do you like best? I can't decide.  You can find their challenge here. Hero arts challenge

Hero Arts Makeover Challenge

Hero Arts is making over their website and they are having a makeover challenge.  Take a card that you have made and give it a makeover.  I have not done this grid technique in forever and I had the idea to kind of make a travel card with browns and greens.  The first card I had made the colors were just too muted so I redid on cardstock with black ink and then added color with copics and it just made the images pop.  All stamps are Hero Arts.  You can find their challenge here.  Hero arts challenge

Hero Arts Makeover challenge

Hero Arts website is going through a makeover so their challenge is take a card and give it a makeover.  I took a card that I had stamped with dye ink and matched with bright paper and then made it over with doing a watercolor version.  I just started doing watercolor with stamping and I was really amazed at how subtle the colors were.  It made the card have a total different look.  I did go with less bling on the 2nd card as I thought maybe I had added a bit too much.  I love both cards they are just so different but just so alike.  Stamp by Hero Arts and challenge can be found here.  Hero Arts challenge
