I Love You to the Moon and Back

26 August 2016

Hey there!
 I created a card for Altenew's August Challenge featuring To the Moon and their mini Pine Tree.
The moon was heat embossed with clear embossing powder and the whole panel was lightly sponged with Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry distress inks. Water splatters were added around the moon.
 The pine trees were stamped twice. Once with grey ink then a second time with dark brown ink. I was going for a snowy effect. I finished off the card with several enamel dots that are supposed to represent other planets.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

ATSM #208 - Holiday Challenge

23 August 2016

Hello and welcome to a new challenge at ATSM!
It's a holiday theme this week and since Halloween is only a several months away I thought I would get a jump start on my cards.
I pulled out a set by PTI released a couple of years ago entitled Superstition. I paired it up with that gorgeous moon image in the background from To the Moon by Altenew which I heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I sponged the sky with distress inks before adhering the sponged die cut grass from MFT. I added a few water splatters and a sentiment from Trick Or Treat also by PTI and my card was complete.
Stop by and see what the rest of the DT created. We would love to see your cards in our gallery!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hello and thanks for popping in!
I had my distress inks on hand and the dahlia stamp by WPlus9 so I thought I would do a little water coloring. After it dried I cut the image out with a Simon Says stitched rectangle wafer die and adhered a die cut sentiment by PTI.

It's All About the Candy

Good morning and welcome!
For most stamp companies August seems to be the month when Halloween sets are released. My card today features a set released a couple of years ago by Papertrey Ink called Superstition. I water colored the background with my Gansai Tambi water colors onto a stitched rectangle wafer die by Simon Says Stamp. The sentiment came from the set Trick Or Treat also by PTI.
 This card reminds me of my black cat Charlie who has a fascination with paper bags and boxes. One of his favorite places to sleep is in a cardboard box that sits on top of my kitchen cabinets.
Have a super weekend!

Christmas Card Challenges #35

Hello and welcome to challenge #35! Here is this week's inspiration photo.
For my card today I used a sentiment from Oh Holy Night by PTI and stamped it onto a background that was stenciled using an old Impressionabilities thin metal template by Spellbinders and salty ocean distress ink. I checked and I don't think they carry this line anymore.
