SNSS – Be Flamazing!

For the next two weeks, I am going to create two cards with one image. I will use different inks, paints, etc for each. Today, I have a card using a newer stamp set from Sweet N Sassy called Be a Flamingo Clear Stamp Set

For the first card. I created a background panel with Distress Ink for the “beach” and “ocean” and Dylusion paints for the “sky”. For texture on the sand and water I used Texture Tiles 1 and Texture Tiles 3 (this month’s stamp of the month). I created a water color panel with Distress Oxides on which I stamped the Flamingo. I fussy cut the flamingo and popped up on the panel. 

For my second card, I went clean and simple and stamped the flamingo and sentiment on Kraft cardstock and colored it up with Polychromos pencils. In addition to the sentiments that came with the set, I also used Skinny Minnie Alpha.

There you have it – the same stamp, two ways! Fun huh??

I hope you are inspired!

SNSS – Texture background

Today I have a pretty quick clean and simple card using Sweet N Sassy’s July 2018 Stamp of the Month: Texture Tiles 3. I created a simple background that actually uses color dye inks! I rarely use them and I am so glad I did – it is so fun!

I hope you like it and are inspired!

SNSS – Go With God Printable

Are you enjoying the new printable/devotional combos from Sweet N Sassy as much as I am? This month the Go God’s Way Printable Bundle with Devotional reminds us to go where God leads us and it is fabulous! While the set is fun for Bible Journaling, I LOVE the outlines because I LOVE coloring. 

Today I created 2 scenes with the outline elements. The sentiment in the set is really powerful and it felt like a fit for my cards so I typed it up and used it for both of them.

The first card uses the sitting lady and the stack of suitcases which I put in a “room”

The second one uses the bicycle – which I put on a sidewalk.

Both of these cards are clean and simple but I really love them! I hope this inspires you to create a scene of your own!

Thanks,

Lyn

Bugaboo – Saturday Challenge ATG – Crazy Friends!

Today starts month 2 as a guest designer for Bugaboo Stamps. Today’s Saturday Challenge is “Anything Goes” so, as I love to do, I created a CAS card. I used Make it snappy – Friends for my card. It is pretty much perfect for a coloring day 🙂 Sometimes just getting out your markers, crayons, or colored pencils and coloring up your image is all you need for a fun card.  I hope you like it and are inspired.

Tiddly Inks Challenge – Gel Shaker

Summer time, summer time, sum sum summer time!! It is definitely time to go out and swim and soak up the sun!!

It is time for a new challenge at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog and it is an Anything Goes Challenge. I have been wanting to create a “water shaker” for so long and when I saw the Tiddly Inks Wryn – Just Keep Swimming image, I knew the time was now! I mean doesn’t she look like she should be underwater? I used THIS tutorial to create my shaker element but based on other videos I had seen, I used hair gel instead of water because it leaves the perfect amount of “bubbles” behind which work perfect with a snorkel. 

I colored her up with Copics and used some star glitter shapes and Dollar Store hair gel. I decided to go simple with the outside since the focus was on the interactive element – the gel “shaker” (that I keep playing with :)) It was VERY hard to put the gel element on top of my sweetly colored image but the results are too fun -I am so happy to have tried this technique!

I hope you like it and are inspired to join the challenge this week at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.

LMMS Challenge #192 – Splish Splash

Badge for Sidebar

Today at Little Miss Muffet we have a New challenge #192 and I have a fun distress Ink splish splash smoosh card using Polka Dot Pals Roxie 🙂

I used my Copics to color up my image and I splashed a little color in the middle of the card base. Then I fussy cut the image and popped her in the middle of the color splotch. It is essentially a one layer card (ish). My sentiment is from Sweet N Sassy Stamps Keep In Touch, Too.

Come on over and join in on Challenge #192 – Anything Goes!  There are prizes… For our prizes, one lucky winner will be awarded a $10.00 Gift Voucher to the LMMS shop. We like to select a couple other projects to highlight as well.  Good Luck!

SNSS Let’s Go to the Movies!

Did you know that Sweet N Sassy had digital stamps? They absolutely do and there are some very fun ones to choose from! And today I had so much fun playing with the Poppin’ By Digital Stamp Set. Complete with cute image and 2 fun sentiments!!

First I created a CAS card and because I couldn’t help myself, I took a little tutorial and learned to make a kernel of popcorn with polymer clay to embellish it with.

I also created a gift card holder for a movie gift card (you know…to round out the gift :)). 

I love it! However, it is now too thick for an envelope hmmm… maybe I will put the card and the gift card holder in a small box (haha – is that to counter-intuitive for a GC holder??)

I hope you like it!! Hop over to the Digital department of the store and have fun!!!
