This is one of the cards we will be making on Monday at my stamp club. I've used the Soho Subway DSP and Simply Pressed Clay to make the flower. I put some Crystal Effects in the center of the flower. The edge of the Very Vanilla layer is distressed and then sponged with Early Espresso. The base is Summer Starfruit. This card uses the Masking Tape/ Painters Tape technique. Just lay your tape (sticky side down) on your ink pad. I rub it lightly to get a good coat of ink. Then lay it on your card stock where you want the color and you get a nice color block.
This card was inspired by the Friday Mash Up. You could use the sketch or a school theme or both. I chose both. I used a black card base and sponged a little of Whisper White ink on it to give it a chalkboard feel. Next, I had some retired DSP that I cannot remember the name of with apples on it. The grid paper DSP comes from Soho Subway. The pencil I came up with all on my own!
Here's your Mashup Challenge:
- Create a project with the "Sketch Liliana created."
- Create a project with a "School Theme (books, pencils, rulers, numbers, etc."
- Or Mash it Up and create a "School themed project using Liliana's Sketch. "
I really struggled with coming up with a design for this sketch. When I finally decided to make a masculine card it seemed to come together quickly. Sometimes I need to remember to pull out some of my stamps I haven't used in a while! The pennant is from the Soho Subway DSP. I seemed to be using that one quite a bit today, but as you can see - it really is quite versatile. The stamped elements are from the set Clockworks. Love my handy-dandy Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line everything up in the little pocket watch.
After doing such a masculine card I needed to make a really feminine one. The card base is Crumb Cake. One of my favorite neutrals (actually, I pretty much love them all). The DSP this time is from Epic Day. The stamps are Oh, Hello. I used a little bit of Basic Gray to outline everything. A few mini brads complete the look.
I like building up my Christmas Card stash so time to cool it a bit with this frosty design. The DSP is from the Winter Frost stack. The little hexagon in the center of the ornament is one of the elements on the flip side of the big rectangle. I put a Rhinestone Basic Jewel in the center for some bling. The white square was embossed with the Modern Mosaic EF. The design on the Smoky Slate strip is from the Modern Mosaic stamp set ( handy-dandy Stamp-A-Ma-Jig again). The ornament is in the set Very Merry Tags in the Holiday catalog. The sentiment on the bottom is from my old stand by Teeny Tiny Wishes. Finishing off the look are three candy dots in Smoky Slate in the top right corner.
This card is definitely along the clean and simple lines. I have to laugh a little every time I get this set (Perfect Blend) out to use it because I HATE coffee. I used to not even be able to tolerate the smell of it. Yet, I had to have this set when I saw it because many people I love ARE coffee drinkers so its fun to make cards that they will enjoy. The base in Crisp Cantelope. I used a yoplait yogurt cup (empty, of course) and inked it up with Soft Suede to make the faux coffee rings. The cup was stamped on Crumb Cake and also Whisper White. Then I hand cut the pieces of each that I wanted to use. Cute!
I'll be back in a few days to share some more creations with you! Pin It Now!
