FMS191 Card 2

I did a second design using FMS191 because I loved the way the first card turned out.  I wanted two different designs for the gift I was making.

There is a 2nd challenge from Simon Says Stamp to use our favorite Ranger products. I used the Tim Holtz Distressing inks – Faded Jeans to do a rubbed on/direct to paper technique.

I changed the matting color on this card to Thistle because the panel blended into the Outdoor Denim too much.

Same with coloring in the butterflies.  I changed this. I opted to stamp in the Outdoor Denim dye based ink  and cover with Stickles.  The dye base ink allows bleeding from the image into the Ranger Stickles Diamond Glitter Glue (another must have). I wanted to get a watercolored look with the Stickles.

Add a few pearl embellishments from my stash.  Just loved making this card!  It’s so cool to see how you can use the same sketch and get two different looking cards by changing the background technique and how you embellish or color!

Flip flaps are an inexpensive way to add interaction and creativity to your layouts without spending additional money creating more layouts to accommodate the number of pictures you have or want to include.

Ice Cream Dream June SOM

You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream with the Ice Cream Dream stamp set!  June’s Stamp of the Month (SOM) is S1506 – Ice Cream Dream.  I enjoy coloring and this set allows me to spend some time doing this.  Here’s one of the cards I’ve created using a sketch from “Take Ten” magazine from Stampington and Company.

X7196B Blossom is the paper I used for this card.  Just love how “summery” it looks.  I used the Sunset reinker with acrylic paint to color in the ice cream.  ShinTouch Markers for the cone, layering the color to get my shading.

ICD Card 1b wmSome doodling and glitter gems for bling.  Make for a fun, fast card (short of the paint drying).  We’ll add it to the Come and Play Card Buffet!

ICD Card 1a wmIt’s a very cute set.  Everyone in our family loves ice cream. Even our dogs love ice cream!  We have an ice cream truck that comes to our neighborhood in the summer.  This set is S1506 and $17.95 if you purchase it outright.  With a $50.00 purchase you’ll get it for $5.00 (plus an extra goodie for me)!

Jackson is the name of the game!

Jackson is my featured paper pack for June.  On June 13, we’ll be doing the Jackson WOTG from 12-3pm, followed by a crop until 9pm.  You still have a day to sign up!

1506-maincarousel-jackson-paper-usThe colors in Jackson are all about being outdoors.  They are gender neutral.  Best of all, not only do you have the coordinating compliments and assortment designed to match the Jackson paper pack,  you have all the addition embellishments from the My Crush Wildwood and My Crush In The Pink which work extremely well!

My upline took the above pictures to show how well the My Crush embellishments work.  The pink “Bubbly” and blue “Brave” enameled shapes  are in the Seasonal Expressions.  Just love how our other products can be pulled in to use with Jackson’s papers.

Here is the Jackson WOTG although to participate in the WOTG, you have a few purchasing options.  You can check them out here.
