Stunning Shadow Stamping

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for the final Camp Create challenges by MFT,  Stunning Shadow Stamping.  I finished all of them all summer except the bonus challenge.  Maybe I will get time, fingers crossed!  I think this was my favorite challenge of this round.  This isn't a technique I've done before and truth be told, I'm not always good at techniques but this one I was pleased with and really enjoyed!  I used my Build-able Blooms set, another that I haven't used in a long time!  That is the great thing about these challenges, they make me dig deep in my inventory!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Divine Dry Embossing

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for MFT's Camp Create, Divine Dry Embossing.  I had a lot of fun with this one, I haven't done this technique in a while and I haven't used this set, Peaceful Wildflowers,  in a while either!  Not sure why, it is so pretty!  I cut out my masking paper using a circle die and sponged with Tattered Rose Distress Ink.  That is a color I don't know if I have ever used, but I love how it came out here!  I applied many layers and left it overnight to dry.  So pretty!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Awesome Ombre

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for MFT's Camp Create, Awesome Ombre.   I sponged Banana Split, Lemon Chiffon and Daffodil on watercolor paper.  I spritzed water so the colors would blend more, then heat set it.  I cut it out using my Blueprints 26, I thought it would be neat to have the balloon in ombre.  IRL the bottom portion is lighter!  It's not showing up much lighter on my screen.  I made a bow with twine and twisted it a bit.  The sentiment is heat embossed and I added a few enamel dots to finish off the card.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Remarkable Resist

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for a couple of challenges.  First, this weeks Freshly Made Sketches challenge and also for MFT's Camp Create Remarkable Resist challenge.  I heat embossed snowflakes from my Snowflake Flurry set with clear embossing powder and used Paver Red Ink, I thought it would be fun to use a little different color.  The left side looked so bare so I added a few sequins.  The sentiment is from my Santa's Elves set.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Thank You

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks Mix it Up Monday challenge on Stamp TV.  This weeks challenge is a great sketch from Susie!  My card last night was black on black and I decided to do another tone on tone card except the flowers were heat embossed the Penny embossing powder.  I think these flowers from Melanie's Stately Flowers 10 stamp set are gorgeous heat embossed!  I haven't colored them yet but I'm loving this look!  The little panel behind the flower panel is scored, I didn't want to use dp and thought that would be great for texture.  
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!
