Using the Week 2 additional Color Combos, I made this card. I was very inspired by the way Kelly Rasmussen created her card! I never thought to stamp out all my sentiments and then play around with the arrangement! Pure genius! LOL! I used the 1st color combo... and used Hero Arts Mid Tone Shadow Inks. (Tide Pool, Pale Tomato, Orange Soda, and Green Hills) I used several sentiments from Papertrey Ink stamp sets. The only caution I might give you is to be careful not to use too many sets and not put them back right away! It took me forever to find which stamps went with which sets because I took so many out! After stamping, I went back and stamped many again and added clear embossing powder for some shine. I also added Glossy Accents on the stars and candles and added dimension with foam tape.
Stretch Your Holiday Product Challenge..... I love getting more use out of my stamps so this challenge was a fun one for me! I used a Papertrey Ink stamp set called Vintage Ornaments Additions for this card. I used the cluster of three little stars to stamp a random pattern on my cream cardstock. I used the colors from this week also. I used Distress Inks in Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn. For the accent stars, I used Gathered Twigs ink and then covered them with Glossy Accents. The banners were cut with Double Ended Banner dies from Papertrey Ink.
I have not posted anything since FEBUARY!!! I am dusting off the old blog because I am taking an Online Card Class and have been busy working on my "homework" and will share it here! First I would like to thank Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner for putting these classes together! They, along with all the guest teachers, are so inspiring and I have learned so much from all of them! This first card was made for the Pre Class Challenge #2. (The gallery is obviously closed now that we are on the third week but I thought I would share it here.)
