Stamp Ink Paper: Tic-Tac-Toe

What better way to wish someone good luck than with an elephant blowing out gold? I was a little apprehensive about buying this stamp, but my niece loves elephants and when I travel, I buy her an elephant souvenir. Guess what she’s getting when she graduates from Radiology school!? You guessed it…this cute card! 

Each week I am in constant awe of my teammates over at Stamp Ink Paper.  Their talent is absolutely incredible and they never cease to amaze me.  The cards everyone uploads are equally fantastic and I love visiting various blogs and other social medial posts with hand-made cards.  Jump on over and check out the talent!

The Details:

  • Spotlight Technique.  I didn’t know that was the technique I used after I shared the card on our blog team page.  We all have various stamping & designing styles and they’re all acceptable.  It’s “art” and anything goes!
  • Metallic Sequin.  I didn’t get the idea of designing the card with golden sequin being blown out of elephant’s trunk until after I put the card together.  What better way than to wish someone good luck with gold? I’ve always been told that an elephant with its trunk in an upwards position brings good-luck and you know it’s true.  As I was designing the card I received a notification that I won a $25 gift certificate from a graphic designer I use for my graphic art design business (invitations & more).
  • Two-tone Colors.  To keep the good-luck theme I used Elegant Eggplant (deep purple) because purple has been known for royalty & wealth for centuries. My niece has definitely earned her way through school by working hard and she will be rewarded for sure.  Don’t worry, she’s too busy to follow my blog, so I’m not worried she’s going to see it before she receives it. (LOL)

A Rose Card for Mom

My mom had a birthday and since she absolutely loves roses, I thought the giant rose from the Rose Wonder  stamp set was perfect for her card. But what truly added the finishes touches was the So Detailed flower wrap! So easy, so simple to put together, it’s amazingly beautiful! Oh, and yes, she loved it!

The Details:

  • Afraid of Glitter?  Many crafters are afraid of glitter and I’m not afraid of it, but my OCD does kick in when I use it.  I sometimes feel like it’s the plague (lol).  The Red Glimmer paper will not leave glitter all over the place like lose glitter, but it will leave little glittery spots around the card (as seen in above photo).  But nothing to cause your heard to do a 360.
  • Retired Items.  We all keep retired items in our stock and the two items I used were the stamp set (Spanish Teeny Tiny wishes) and the glitter ribbon. What items do you keep that are retired?

Stamp Ink Paper: Elements

Today’s card is a Natural Elements Challenge and what is more natural than venicen?  At least that’s what my husband said when I asked him what he considers a natural element.  LOL

What do you consider a natural element?  Show us this week over at the Stamp Ink Card Challenge #82.

The Details:

  • Dual Colored Flowers.  The easiest ever way to color an image two different colors is with your Stampin’ Write markers.  See video below if you haven’t seen it done.
  • Masking Technique.  To give the image the look as if the deer are standing in front of tall grass, I did the masking technique.  Many know what it is, but basically you stamp the image on a piece of paper (sticky note works great) and the image already stamped on cardstock is covered to protect the image.  You then simple stamp over it.  You can view a video below to see what I’m talking about.
