All Of My Favorite Stories Include You--PP #358

August 20, 2017

Hi!  It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players

The amazing Joanne is our hostess this week and she has a Clean and Simple Coloring Challenge for all of us!  There is nothing I enjoy more in card making than coloring an image so, this was such a fun card for me to make! We can't wait to see what you create!

My card is created on a white card base.  I cut a yellow stitched rectangle panel for the top layer.  I used another size of the stitched rectangles to cut the window shape.  I added a piece of patterned paper in the negative space to make it look like wallpaper.  The little girl, the lamp and the books were stamped in black Memento ink using the MFT 
Our Story stamp set.  I colored the images with Copic Markers and cut them out with the matching dies.  Wink of Stella was added for lots of shine to all the pieces.  I did not add any more embellishments,  since it is supposed to be a CAS card.  That is always so hard for me.  LOL!

Let The Bliss Begin--Sketch Saturday #477

August 19, 2017

It's Saturday and time for a new challenge at Sketch Saturday!

Crafty Sentiments Designs is our sponsor this week.
The prize this week is 3 digi stamps!

My card is created using the FiFi Bubbles Digi Stamp.

My card  is created on a white card base.  I added a piece of plaid paper for the background.  A rectangle strip of pink was added on the side.  FiFi was copied and colored with Copic Markers.  I added lots of Wink of Stella for shine and Glossy Accents to the bubbles to make them look real.  A few enamel dots were added to finish my card.  The sentiment is perfect for anyone that loves a bubble bath.

Trick or Treat--FMS 301

August 18, 2017

Today I am playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  I loved the sketch this week and it gave me the perfect opportunity to make my first Halloween card using my new MFT Happy Haunting  stamp set.  I LOVE to make Halloween cards.  This set is just too cute! 

My card is created on a white card base.  I used a piece of black and white striped paper I found in my stash for the background.  I created the top panel using distress inks and splashed a few drops of water on it for fun.  I added the stars from the MFT stamp set and used Versa Mark and clear embossing powder for shine.  The sentiment is from the Your Next Stamp set Waddles Trick or Treat.  I stamped it in Versa Mark and heat embossed it with black embossing powder.  The little trick or treaters were colored with Copic Markers and cut out using the matching dies.  I popped each image with dimensionals.  Lots of Wink of Stella was added for shine and I used a black gel pen on their eyes.  The moon and clouds are from the same set.
