Scrapping4fun Challenges Guest Designer

Happy Thursday evening!! I'm so excited to be a guest designer at Scrapping4fun Challenges!! The theme for Challenge #75 is Fabulous Autumn Colors.

For my cards, I used watercolor paper that had been sprayed with Dylusions Sprays and then stamped with a Darkroom Door Script stamp in Red Geranium Archival Ink.

I cut the Penny Black Branching Out tree die from the paper and then cut it again in black. I inserted the black tree in the opening and then popped up the tree cut from the watercolor paper with foam for dimension.

Grateful is a My Creative Time die and I cut it in black sticky-back foam. The sequins are from My Craft Spot (no longer in business).

The leaves were cut with My Creative Time A Thankful Heart leaf dies from sprayed paper I had in my stash. The edges were inked with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. The crinkle ribbon is RAO Red from The Newspaper Bundle at DL.ART. The pine cone is an Elizabeth Craft Pine Cone die.

Finally, I splattered some black paint on the card and then sprayed it with Perfect Pearls Biscotti for a subtle shimmer.

Thank you to Rachelle and the talented design team at Scrapping4fun Challenges for having me as a guest designer this week!! And thank you for stopping by!!

Merry Christmas Skates Die-Versions Post

{This is a scheduled post} Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I have a couple of Christmas cards to share with you today using several Die-Versions dies. If you use the code lisa15 you'll receive 15% off your regular price (does not include sale prices) Die-Versions order.

The papers are from Maja Designs Vintage Winter stack. For the focal point of my cards, I used the Whispers Skate Around die. I cut them several times for the different colors of the skates, and then applied crackle paint to the boots to give them an aged look.

Once the crackle paint dried and cracked, I added DecoArt raw umber antiquing medium to highlight the cracks. The blades were cut with aluminum tape. The skates were popped up with foam tape for dimension on a Whispers Stitched Nesting Squares die.

A Whispers Snowflake Corner (not currently in stock) die was added to the corner and covered with Decoart Snow Writer paint. A Sweet Petite Snowflake die (not currently in stock) was covered in crystal ice glitter.

A Whispers Lacey Dots border die (not currently in stock) was added beneath the middle layers.
Merry Christmas and...

Seasons Greetings are from the Compliments Holiday 1 die set.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! I'll be by to visit when I return :)

DL.ART Thankful Thursday #189 - Fall

{This is a scheduled post} Happy Thursday and happy first day of fall to all my northern hemisphere friends...or happy spring to those in the southern hemisphere!!

For my fall cards, I used papers from Maja Designs Walking in the Forest stack. The edges were distressed with a Zutter DIA and inked with Tim Holtz Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

For the focal point on my cards, I used a wheelbarrow die from My Craft Spot (sadly, no longer in business). I popped it up with foam tape and added leaves from My Creative Time. The leaves were crumpled and then inked to give them a worn look.

The banner is a My Creative Time Stitched Banner die. The sentiment is from My Craft Spot. This gorgeous crinkle ribbon is Caribbean Coral ~ Tropical Summer Bundle.
