A Blog Named Hero January 2017 Challenge

Hello everyone,

We are half way through January already and into the second half of our New to Me challenge over at A Blog Named Hero.  The challenge this month is use something new and our sponsor is Right at Home for January.

I used the tea cut from the Cup of Joy set and the sentiment from the How Have You Bean set.  I love tea more than coffee and wanted to use it on my card for today.  I stamped the image with HA intense black ink and coloured it in with my copics.  I added the flowers with HA great and red ink to make it look like an old fashioned china cup.

I added a piece of woodgrain patterned paper brown paper so it looked like the tea cup was sitting on a table and then added the sentiment to that with the same intense black ink.

And then after adhering all the elements to m card I'm sitting there staring at it because it seemed that there was something missing.  So as an after-thought I covered up the cup and paper and added some ink splatters with some black paint and added a couple of gems from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!

AAA Cards - Game #81 "Hello"

Hello everyone,

We are back with our first AAA Cards game of 2017!  I hope you all enjoyed the holidays. We had a very good Christmas with family.

I decided to make two cards for todays game.  For my first one, I used the MFT hello die and cut it out of the centre of my front panel.  I then took the Hero Arts striped background stamp and inked it up with the Lilac to Purple and cut a piece just big enough to cover the Hello.  I then stamped the sentiment with HA black dye ink from the Hello stamp and die set.  I then added fun foam to the back of the panel and then added it to an A2 sided card base. 

For the second card I used the positive die cut from the same piece of paper and adhered that to another card base and added a different sentiment from the same set with black ink.  

Our wonderful sponsor is offering a $15 gift certificate

Thanks so much for stopping by, see you again soon!

Wish you were here - Studio Katia

Hello everyone!

I want to wish you all a Happy New Year!  2016 was full of great adventures and wonderful opportunities.  I want to thank you all for supporting me throughout the year.  I wouldn't be here without you.  Here's to 2017!  

I wanted to share card that I made with the wonderful goodies from Studio Katia sent me for the November release.  I used the Elongate Dotted Hexagon dies and I cut out two sizes out of MFT paper (summer splash and tropical teal) that I got in a kit from a while ago.  I also took the negative die cut paper and cut around the outside of it to make a frame. 

I did a bit of fussing with the pieces to get them in just the right place and adhered them down to the card base with Tombow Mono. 

I had a couple pieces left that I trimmed off the sides and I didn't want to waste them so I added them to the card as well to fill in some of the empty areas. 

For the sentiment I used the sentiment stamps that coordinate with the Foxes stamp set. In my package there was a sweet Thank You stamp and this little butterfly was there so I thought it would be perfect to add to finish off the sentiment.
