There's a new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog. We are looking for cards that feature Halloween Costumes. I dug out my Tim Holtz Crazy Birds and dressed them up for Halloween.
Have you ever bought a stamp set just for the sentiment? This sentiment just cracks me up. The set had the shoes too! Jump on over to the Cards in Envy blog and check out the rest of the Design Teams costumes! Then link up your costume card for a chance at bragging rights.
I'm entering this in the Retro Rubber Challenge Boo! Both the sentiment stamp (SU Tee Hee Hee) and the Crazy Birds are over a year old.
This card for the Online Card Classes Merry Making Class was about paint resist. I used a metallic paint in the background. I love the way the metallic acrylic paint shines through all the distress ink and the stamping. So pretty!
I added a little snow pen to the top of the joy sentiment and some snow ornaments on the trees.
The Fall Season is upon us! The new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog is for Autumn cards with leaves on them. This is my favorite The Aspen trees are turning gold in the mountains. The air is crisp and the skies are brilliant blue. Here's my Autumn card.
It's a little hard to see but the leaves are die cut from metallic gold cardstock. Head on over to the Cards in Envy blog and check out what the rest of the design team came up with. Then link up your Autumn cards with us.
I finally had a chance to get out my Club Stamp Lagoon kit and make some cards. I came up with different versions from the suggestions in the kit. I'll add these to the linky party for Lagoon.
On this card I used the Quad Print and cut slits in the seaweed. The fish are stamped, cut out and inserted in the slits to make it look like they are swimming in and out of the seaweed. The fish are coated with Wink of Stella for some shine.
On this card I used the Quad Print. I stamped the mermaid tail on contrasting paper and then used sequins to accent the bubbles. The mermaid tail is coated with Wink of Stealla for some shine.
The challenge on the Cards in Envy blog starts today and we are asking for simple, plain cards (Easy as 1, 2, 3). That was a real challenge for me.
I did a stencil background (using distress ink and perfect pearls over the ink) and two die cuts. That is as simple as I get (LOL)! I really wanted to start working on Christmas Cards. Yes, we have about 2 months before it is time to mail out Christmas Cards.
Come check out what the rest of the design team did on the Cards in Envy blog. Then link up your simple cards with us.
Happy Labor Day to you. Hope you are enjoying the last days of the summer. There is a new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog. We want to see your Celebration or Congratulation cards. I have been going through my stash and getting out some of my old Club Scrap kits. The Constellation kit has some beautiful shiny paper that is great for celebration cards.
The inside of the card says "Congratulations." Hop on over to the Cards in Envy blog and check out what the rest of the design team members came up with. Then link up your celebration or congratulations cards with us!
