Painted thank you

Hi everyone,

Today's card is for the current SSSflickrchallenge where the theme is Dots &/or Stripes. I chose to
add a little of both on my card.

I started by creating my background using 3 different colours of Distress inks and a SSS stencil.
Once I had blended the colours I decided to use 2 sizes of SSS stitched rectangle dies to create the frame for my sentiment. I can keep the middle leftover piece for another project.
I stamped the Concord & 9th bold sentiment (which I just love) with black ink and added a little accent to the panel from the same stamp set.
Added a couple of splatters and layered the frame against some polka dot patterned paper onto my card base.
There you have it. That's my card.

Hello friend

Hi everyone,

I guess I am just enjoying this summer a little too much as I don't seem to be in the frame of mind for too much cardmaking. Like to be outdoors a lot :)
Well I did get a chance to use my new Distress Oxide inks to create this card though.

I started by stamping the flower image and embossing with white embossing powder. I then blended 3 different ink colours onto the flower. When I was happy with the colour blending I added some water splatters.
I then die cut the whole panel using a Wonky stitched rectangle die.
Next I moved onto to creating the sentiment with a SSS hello die using black cardstock and die cut another out of black foam and adhered the two together. Stamped friend on black cardstock and embossed in white.
Added the whole panel to a black panel and then adhered to my card base. I then added some Nuvo crystal drops for a little accent and that's my card for today.

#Friends #Selfie shaker card

Hi everyone,

Well it's another hot, humid beautiful day here after quite a thunderstorm last night. The air conditioning is off, the windows are open and the wonderful summer breeze is blowing through the house quite freely. Love it!

Today's card I am sharing is for the Simon Says Stamp 'Splatter It' challenge here.

I used a couple of fairly new Lawn Fawn stamp and die sets and some distress ink to create my shaker card.

I created the frame using the SSS stitched rectangle die set to frame my selfie photo. Used some plaid paper to die cut the selfie frame.
The background piece was done blending some distress inks together.
Stamped the elephant and mouse and coloured with Copics.

Arranged the frame pieces, added some tiny glass beads and then added the frame with some foam tape to create the shaker. Before that I added some splatter with teal spray.

Thanks for stopping by.
