Inkurable Stampers: Eyelets

Well, well well! It's been a while! I came back to post my entry for Sarah's challenge this month over at Inkurable Stampers. The challenge is to usse some of those old eyelets, and, of course, at least one stamp!

For this birthday card I tried a bit of doodling! I used a peice of white card,  then stamped (in distress inks) circles in various places which I then doodled around to create balloons. The circle stamp was from an old Maya Road collection called Blossom Circles. I cut the balloon scene into 5 panels, placed it on a light blue piece of PP, with a small border of the darker turqoise/blue cardstock I used for the base.. Some kraft cardstock, twine and a sticker sentiment finished it off, and of course the eyelets set it off.

Inkurable Stampers- Paint

Hello all!

I have my Inkurable Stampers' March entry to show you!

Add Image
This card was really simple to make: I stamped and embossed the large flower stamp, splotched on various colours of paint, stamped smaller flowers and sentiment, then added some twine to finish it off!
The flowers were from a Kaisercraft set and the sentiment is from Darkroom Doors "all occasions" stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by!

Scrap-Creations: Anything goes!

Over at Scrap Creations they are running an anything goes challenge (yes, this means that you can enter any type of card for a chance to win a $3o gift voucher to Stampotique!).

I have chosen to do a bright tri shutter card (using this tutorial from Splitcoast stampers) made from kraft cardstock and papers from October Afternoon's Modern Homemaker (and the yellow from the thrift shop collection). I love october afternoon papers and I think they look great with kraft!

These cards are fun to make because you get so much enjoyment out of opening and closing it every step of the way :P

I used these embellishments:

  • flowers
  • felt flowers
  • buttons
  • twine
  • chipboard
  • stamps (happy birthday from the "all occasions" stamp set by darkroom door and flourish stamps from basic grey and paperartsy)
As you can see this is a fun and bright card, but it is way not as hard as it looks!

Inkurable Stampers- Bookmarks

Hey Everyone!

I was very happy with the theme for this month at Inkurable Stampers! You can make any type of bookmark you want so long as you use one stamp!

I made a set of two "puzzle piece" bookmarks for my dad for this challenge. Other then a load of measuring, I stamped ,punched and stitched to make the bookmarks.I used papers from the wanted collection by Cosmo Cricket along with matching cardstock. The stamps were from a few different stamp sets, but the hand is by Cherry pie art stamps and the words are mostly from tim holtz and kaisercraft sets.

These bookmarks are to replace ones made by my brother and I when we were toddlers :)
