Mystery Challenge by SSInk

Hello fellow stampers! Glad to see you! Today I am sharing with you my card to play along with the monthly Mystery Challenge over at SSInk.

 

And here is my card:
I have used 4 of the 6 elements suggested this month. My card is 1 layer, is ombre with the 3 different colors of ink, uses the Bermuda Bay bakers twine and the sentiment is heat embossed. I really love mystery challenges because it has you trying so many things all at once.

SSInk Color Challenge

Happy weekend friends! It is busy here this weekend but I have a card to share with you. I love the color challenges and this week I am playing along with SSInk.

 The paper from the Love Blossoms stack coordinates so well with the colors of this challenge I knew I had to try to use them together.

Mystery Challenge at SSInk

Hey gang! It’s the weekend! Hope you have something fun planned for you or your family. We have a full schedule the next few days, celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary and helping th teenager in the house get to her various activities. She’s a great kid and has a very full schedule!
I was able to get some crafting time in and played along with the monthly Mystery Challenge over at SSInk. With so many elements to choose from  it was a little hard to decide which direction I should go.
Here is what I came up with!
I used the wet wash watercolor technique on this card for the layer with the sentiment. It is so quick and easy, can be used for any color combo and gives such a soft look in this case. 
Underneath that layer I used three different embossing folders for the three different colors of paper. There are lots of textures going on here and I love they way they all worked together. 
The glimmer paper heart adds a little amount of bling and the sequins are from January’s Paper Pumpkin kit. I love the look they bring!
I encourage you to try out any of the challenges I post here on my blog. They really help me get my into my stamp stash and use all of the wonderful products we sell at Stampin’ Up! 
If you need any help ordering or just need a current catalog please let me know! I am here for you!

Inspired by Strawberries

Hello my crafting friends! It has been quite a few days since I have posted a card for you. Winter camp took me down for an extra day or two but I am back and happy to craft again.
Today I am playing along with the inspiration challenge over at SS Ink. The inspiration we were given was this:

And my card:

I absolutely {{LOVE}} how cute these hearts are! They are as on point as I could image to represent the strawberries and the hand cut sections of brown are great as chocolate!  This is going to be such a fun card to give away next month!

A woodland Christmas

Today’s post is full of good news and cheer! This morning it was announced that the wildly popular Woodland Embossing Folder would be returning to our product line in June!!! I am so very excited about this news. This product was such a hot item that Stampin’ Up! could hardly keep it in stock and I feel that it can be used for all 4 seasons, for almost any occasion and is a great option when needing a masculine card. 
When I created this card for this week’s color challenge over at SSInkspiration the news of the return had not yet been announced. What great timing for me to be able to show you this card AND share the good news all in one post!
The challenge for this week is
As soon as I saw them I knew that products I was going to want to use. I love these as Christmas colors but I think they are also very masculine as well!
My project for this challenge

I absolutely love the look of the white trees with the Taupe background and the fussy cut ornaments really stand out against the neutral tones.. I was Facetiming with my BFF in WA State and she was a huge help in my design process because it was after midnight when I was working on this! Thanks friend!

Inspired by…..

Hello friends! Today I am playing along with the SSInk27 Challenge. I love design challenges and have decided this is a great way to stretch myself.
Fall is in full swing and soon it will be time to put these beautiful colors and textures away and focus on Christmas. I am happy to have a few more days to craft for fall. I wanted to make a coordinating card and gift item because I love giving away what I craft! I love this pillow box die and will miss it terribly when it retires next month!

 I did a little bit of rock and roll technique on the leaves. I wasn’t totally thrilled with them but the do look like they are turning from one color to another.
Thank you for stopping by today! You and subscribe to my blog to the right ——-} and never miss another post. I would love to know what you think of my card so please leave me some blog love in the form of a comment!
