WOW Wednesday - #38-2017

Today is our WOW factor day in which we add some sort of bling to our cards.

I tend to be more CAS and don't use a lot of bling, but I did come up with a cute way to add some rhinestones.


I stamped the goldfish on a darker gold card stock with Versamark and then went over it with Perfect Pearls Perfect Gold.  The stamp set is by Hero Arts and is called Layering Goldfish, so it has a second stamp to go over the first and gives it the details.  I stamped that layer with Versamark which removes the Perfect Pearls.  As I learned early on, you need to spray some sort of fixative on the Perfect Pearls or they will rub off.  I pulled an old paper I had of reflected water and sprayed a shimmer mist over that.  After it dried I fussy cut the fish and put them on along with stamping the sentiment from the same stamp set.  I then used graduated sizes of rhinestones to look like bubbles from the fish. - Denise

Thank You Tuesday 38-2017

Thank You Tuesday using the Pearlized Stamp Layering technique.


I received a gift card for Joann's so I decided to splurge and buy a card making magazine, Paercraft Inspiration, that had a layering stamp set included with it.  The flowers are from that set called Peonies and Orchids.  I stamped with the solid stamp three times on a paper from DCWV stack called Lilac Love using Versamark along with a Thank You sentiment and then brushed them with Perfect Gold Perfect Pearls.  I used the lined stamps inked up in Versamark aligning them the best I could.  You do have to clean the stamp between times because the Perfect Pearls sticks to it and would get on the Versamark pad.  I used another paper from the stack to mat behind it. - Denise

Masculine Monday 38-2017

I love making masculine cards and it was a little challenging using the pearlized layering for a male card, but I really like what I finally came up with.


I have a background stamp from Local King Rubber called Timberline that looks like part of the end of a log.  I thought it would look cool with the shimmer from the Perfect Pearls so I took a dark brown card stock and swiped Versamark all over it and used Perfect Bronze Perfect Pearls. on it.  As it turned out, just swiping did not put it on evenly and the Perfect Pearls didn't adhere correctly.  On to another piece of cardstock.  This time I used a brayer to apply the Versamark before using the Perfect Pearls.  The Perfect Pearls did go on much better.  When I inked up the background stamp with Versamark and stamped the prepared cardstock, I didn't push evenly and the pattern didn't show up very well.  On to my third try and that seemed to be the charm.  I did use a part of the second try to stamp the sentiment (also with Versamark to remove the Perfect Pearls).  The sentiment is from Jillian Vance and is called TREEmedous Love.  I used nesting dies to cut around the sentiment and mat. Also don't forget to use a fixative over it or it will rub off which is a lesson I also learned on the second try.- Denise

Clean & Simple Sunday 38-2017

This is Denise and I will be the designer for this week as we are inspired by Jennifer McGuire all this month. 

This week I will be using a technique called Pearlized Stamp Layering.  How to do this technique can be found here.

Today is a Clean & Simple card.


This technique involves stamping with Versamark, applying Perfect Pearls and then stamping over that with Versamark using the layering part of the stamp.  I used two stamps from the Unity Stamp Company's KOM for August called Never Be Afraid. that are meant to be layered. I stamped the base on navy card stock and dusted the Perfect Pearls color called perfect pearls.  I then used the second set on top of that which removes the Perfect Pearls in that pattern.  for the sentiment, I applied Versamark on a scrap piece of the navy cardstock, put on the Perfect Pearls and then stamped the sentiment using the Versamark which removed the Perfect Pearls and let the navy cardstock show through.  A couple of things I learned was to use an embossing buddy on the cardstock to help keep the Perfect Pearls from sticking where you don't want it.  Also I had to spray a fixative over the image after using the second set, but before working to put the card together or it would rub off. It shimmers a lot more in person, than the picture shows. - Denise

One Stamp Set Saturday - #37-2017

This is my last card for the week highlighting the distress resist technique. It’s One Stamp Saturday. So this was a bit of a challenge for me. I’ve used background stamps all week and wasn’t sure how to add a sentiment. Here’s what I came up with. 



I started with Simon Says STAMP’s Star Flower Background stamp and 100 lb cardstock. I added color with distress inks (twisted citron and peacock feathers) using ink blending tools and blending the colors a bit with a waterbrush. To add a sentiment, there’s a die cut using Simon Says STAMP’s Thanks die. I added Wink of Stella for a bit of sparkle. To complete the card, I added three sequins for more sparkle.

Thanks for hanging out with me this week.

Friday Freestyle - #37-2017

You’re going to need sunglasses because today’s card is really bright. Like the rest of this week, I used Jennifer McGuire's distress resist technique. Here is my card.



I started with Hero Arts Looped Circle background stamp, Versamark ink and regular 100 lb cardstock. I added twisted citron distress ink direct-to-paper, leaving uneven edges. I added a bright orange flourish die cut using My Favorite Things Large Fancy Flourish die. The sentiment uses Papertrey Ink’s Keep It Simple: Thank You stamp set stamped on a yellow banner.

Colorful Thursday - #37-2017

It's Day 5 of this week's Distress Resist technique. Today is Colorful Thursday and the challenge was to use this color prompt on my card.

Image may contain: text

Here's my card



I started with Impression Obsession Cover-a-card Flourishes stamp set, Versamark ink and glossy paper. I added distress inks (spun sugar, picked raspberry, mowed lawn and peacock feathers) using the direct to paper technique. The mini distress inks work really well for this. I cut the panel down to 3” x 4 ¼”. I found a scrap of green cardstock. I stamped the sentiment using Hero Arts Color Layering Bouquet. I used Paper Smooches’ Butterfly Duet die to cut the butterfly using bright pink cardstock. I added a few tiny pearls on the butterfly’s body to complete the card.

WOW Wednesday - #37-2017

Well, it's halfway through the week and we're highlighting Jennifer McGuire's distress resist technique. Today is WOW Wednesday which means stepping the card up with the use of sequins, glitter pens, Nuvo drops etc. Here's my card.



For the background, I used Hero Arts Looped Circle background stamp and Versamark ink.  I added colour using distress inks (mustard seed, spiced marmalade, picked raspberry). As I used regular 100 lb cardstock, I had to add a lot of ink, to reveal the resist. I made a bright yellow tag, using Stampin’ Up’s Ornate Tag Topper punch. The sentiment is from Simon Says STAMP Flower Friend stamp set. To step up the card, I added a thin glitter strip on the tag, shiny ribbon on the tag and used a Sakura silver glitter pen to colour in the intersection circles.

Thank you Tuesday - #37-2017

Hi - Sue back again and today is Thank You Tuesday.  All the cards this week use Jennifer McGuire's Distress Resist technique. Here's my card.


I stamped using Stampin’ Up’s Corner Garden stamp with Versamark ink on glossy paper. I waited for the Versamark to dry and added “blobs” of colour using distress inks (spiced marmalade, picked raspberry, ripe persimmon, twisted citron) applied with ink blending tools. The sentiment is from Simon Says STAMP Flower Friend stamp set. I added a few sequins for a bit of shine and sparkle.

Masculine Monday - #37-2017

It's Sue again. My cards this week all use Jennifer McGuire's Distress Resist technique. Today is Masculine Monday. Here's my card.


My card uses what I consider to be masculine colours (blue and purple). I started with Impression Obsession’s Circle Fusion background stamp with Versamark ink on glossy paper.  Once the Versamark was dry, I added distress inks (mermaid lagoon and seedless preserves) with ink blending tools. I trimmed the panel down to 2 1/8” x 4 ¼”. I die cut the word happy using Memory Box’s Paintbrush Happy and stamped the birthday using Simon Says STAMP Happy Stamp set. If you’re going to try this with glossy paper, give the ink a bit more time to dry. To add a bit of shine, I added a silver cord, tied in a knot and used a royal blue background to complete the card.

Clean & Simple Sunday - #37-2017

Hi! It’s Sue here at Card A Day Challenge Blog. 
We’re so happy that you’ve stopped by.  
This month, we’re highlighting techniques shown by Jennifer McGuire. 
The technique that I’ll be focusing on this week, is what she calls Distress Resist.  
You can watch Jennifer use this technique here. It’s like heat embossing without using embossing powder and a heat tool (emboss resist). Instead, you use just the Versamark, which acts as a resist. What I learned, is that this technique works better with glossy paper and you definitely need to apply a lot of ink to reveal the resist. Actually, in some cases, I applied the ink directly to paper. 
This week, I’ll be showing you some of my cards.

Let’s get started. My first card is for Clean & Simple Sunday. Here’s my card.




I used Impression Obsession’s Circle Fusion background stamp with Versamark ink on glossy paper. I waited a bit to be sure that the Versamark was dried before I applied distress ink (twisted citron, mermaid lagoon) with ink blending tools. HINT – use a lot of ink! The resist shows up best with a lot of ink. I cut the panel down to 2 1/8” x 4 ¼” and matted with a mid-gray strip. I die cut the sentiment from the same mid-gray cardstock using Papertrey Ink’s Wonderful Words: Thank You die. I added a few sequins for a bit of sparkle.


Thanks for visiting.

One Stamp Set Saturday

Today's prompt:  One Stamp Set with the Technique
The stamp set:  Winnie and Walter's Ring in the Celebration (Also from CP SOA)



I swiped Hero Arts Neon Dye Ink on the three solid circles.  Not only did I use one stamp set, I used the same inks throughout the card.  The black ink is Versafine.  This is a really fun stamp set to play with as there are endless design possibilities.  - Kimberly

Friday Freestyle

Today's prompt...create any card using the technique.

Colorful Thursday

Today's Challenge:  use the technique and provided color prompt

Color Prompt



I created this one layer card using Distress Oxide Inks (Picked Raspberry, Peeled Paint, Peacock Feathers, Worn Lipstick.  The technique worked well with the Oxide Ink.  I stenciled  (Wendy Vecchi) the background with Worn Lipstick, Stamped the sentiment (CP SOA) with Peeled Paint, the small flowers (CP SOA) with Picked Raspberry and swiped the butterfly (CP SOA) with Peacock Feathers.  This week, I applied the technique with several different types/brands of ink.  I think the Distress Oxides worked best. - Kimberly

Shapely Saturday 35-2017

There are different ways to get a shaped card.

Here Sue uses one of her dies.


Using CAS-ual Fridays’ Fri-Dies Funky Round die, I die-cut the round tag (overlapping slightly at the top to make it “card-like”). I used silver embossing powder and Catherine Pooler’s Holiday Magic Stamp of Approval’s CAS-ual Fridays’ Bring on the Snowflakes stamp for the heat embossed snowflake on red cardstock. I used a circle die to cut that out. It came together quite easily, once I figured out what to do! LOL! - Sue

C.A.S.E A Card Friday #35-2017

What fun it is to C.A.S.E. a card.


Rainbow is the inspiration that Sue saw in the example.


Friday CASE A Card Challenge
I was inspired by the colours, the stripes and the block letters, each corresponding to a coloured stripe. I flipped the card 90 degrees. Using distress inks (picked raspberry, barn door, mustard seed, peeled paint and faded jeans), which I think are a good representation of the colours on the CASE card  and a water brush, I added the colour to a piece of watercolour paper. When I finished, I noticed that the stripes on the right were longer than the stripes on the left. So, I thought that I could “fix” it by extending the stripes on the left. What I noticed was that it looked like paint drips. I liked the effect, so I added them to the other stripes too. I used Memory Box’s Many Thanks die for the “thank” letters and Catherine Pooler’s Beautiful World Stamp of Approval box’s CAS-ual Fridays 2 Yous dies for the “you”. - Sue

Technique Thursday #35-2017

Our technique today doesn't require any fancy tools, just a pencil with an eraser.  A sample of it can be found here.

Sue made this cheerful card using this method.


I’ll admit it. I hadn’t really considered the eraser end of a pencil to be an ink applying tool before. I started with the sentiment from Simon Says STAMP Big Scripty Greetings placed towards the bottom of the card. I tried to mimic bubbles rising using the pencil eraser and Hero Arts strawberry, orange soda and lemon yellow ink.  Interesting technique – for sure! - Sue

Card Sketch Wednesday #35-2017

Sue had this card sketch as a start for her card.

Sue's card is a great take on the sketch.


I started with Authentique’s Strong collection 6x6 pad for inspiration and used papers for the background and the triangle piece. I used Stampin’ Up’s Ornate Tag Topper punch to create the two tags. I used Simon Says STAMP’s Summer Garden stamp set for both the flower and the sentiment. I used markers, Distress Ink Ripe Persimmon and Stampin’ Up Crushed Curry to add colour to the flower, which was fussy-cut. - Sue

Sympathy Tuesday #35-2017

Simple and striking is Sue's sympathy card.


For my card, I masked off an area exposing a 2” circle, where I added colour with ink blending tools and distress inks (mustard seed, spiced marmalade, faded jeans) to mimic a sunset. Before removing the mask, I stamped the grass and dragonfly using Technique Tuesday’s Wildflowers stamp set. I have to say, I think that this is my most favourite stamp set. The sentiment is from Simon Says STAMP’s Flower Friend stamp set.- Sue

Youth Monday #35-2017

Youth Monday's have brought us some really cute cards and Sue has another one.



I’ve had the Paper Smooches Birthday Buddies stamp set for quite some time and just never seemed to have the right occasion to use it. I took it with me when visiting a friend and created this card. I think it’s super cute. I used distress inks  (mustard seed, wild honey, festive berries, twisted citron, salty ocean) with a water brush to add the colour. I used a rhinestone for the birthday cap and glossy accents for the bird’s eyes. I popped the panel up with dimensionals. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I love pun-ny sentiments! - Sue

Shine and Sparkle Sunday #35-2017

We start our last week of August with a shiny card from Sue using a classic embossing folder.


I found a shiny piece of silver cardstock and used Cuttlebug’s Diamond Plate embossing folder which was one of the first embossing folders I had purchased. I like using it for masculine cards, usually with a car or motorcycle stamped image because the diamond plate reminds me of a tool box. I used CTMH’s D1216 Finish Line stamp set for the car image. Couldn’t figure out a “good” place for the sentiment so I left it without one. It’s difficult to get a good picture. Trust me, it’s really shiny! - Sue

Shapely Saturday 34-2017

Shapely Saturday means making a card that is any shape but square or rectangle.

This adorable card makes you want to start rocking.


Oh, my.  The item I used for this card is one I have been "saving for the right scrapbook page".  Admit it.  You all have been there.  I know, I know, I should have purged it already but I am happy I didn't because now I can use this card :)  I chose to make a rocker card so I needed a rocking horse!  These are so simple to make.  You start with a regular A2 card and simply cut an oval shape on the edge so the card will rock!  I used blue cardstock for the card and patterned paper for color at the top.  I had a vellum sentiment from old Creative Memories and I attached it to the patterned paper.  All done! ~ Gracie

C.A.S.E A Card Friday #34-2017

It is always fun to see what elements the designers take from the inspiration card to make their C.A.S.E. card. Here is today's.

C.A.S.E. card


Gracie's card.


Inside

For today's card I used some paper I have had a long time.  I paired it with blue cardstock to make a card base.  I turned the card sketch sideways.  The stamp set is new - it is "Need Coffee" from Pink & Main. (I love supporting her - she has a form of MD and a portion of her profits go to MDA).  I stamped and embossed her with Versamark ink and Memento Luxe Tuxedo Black ink.  She is colored with Spectrum Noir markers.  The sentiment is from the stamp set.  I also added a coffee cup from the set to the inside of the card. ~ Gracie

Technique Thursday #34-2017

Today's technique is called double offset stenciling.  You can see how to do this here.


Gracie shows how versatile this can be when you mix your stencils.


Well, this was fun!  I used several stencils and distress inks.  I started with a base layer using lighter inks and progressed by moving the stencils and using darker inks.  Using different stencils makes unique patterns.  I die cut the butterflies and the center from my stenciled paper.  I added the sentiment in the center and attached the butterflies with pop dots for dimension.  I added baker's twine and rhinestones.  I put the panel on a green cardstock base. ~ Gracie

Card Sketch Wednesday #34-2017

Gracie always makes a card sketch into a great card.

This is the sketch for today.


And Gracie's card.

For today's challenge I used a stamp set from I Impressions I have had for at least 3 years.  I stamped the images on white cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with Ranger silver embossing powder.  I colored the images with Spectrum Noir using a pink marker then cut each image into a square.  I mounted the squares on black cardstock then placed them on silver shimmer cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment and added heat set rhinestones.  The panel was placed on a white cardstock base. ~ Gracie

Sympathy Tuesday #34-2017

Gracie has a beautiful sympathy card today.


This is one of my favorite cards I have made in a while.  I used a stamp set from Heartfelt Creations that I received from my Secret Sister.  It is absolutely beautiful.  I stamped it on patterned paper I have had for a long time - I do not remember the source.  I embossed it and colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers.  I cut the patterned paper with an oval just to do something different and really liked how it turned out.  I mounted it on a brown cardstock base and added black enamel dots.  I believe the sentiment is from Raisin Boat. ~ Gracie

Youth Monday #34-2017

It is Monday, so our challenge is to make a youth card and Gracie came up with this cutie.


Inside


Today I started with blue enamel heat set dots I have had over a year.  I love them.  I will be heartbroken when I won't be able to find them on Amazon.  I made a cardstock base of orange and added a strip of green to the center.  I stamped a set of images from Raison Boat- they make me think of a movie I had to watch a million times when my 16 year old grandson was a toddler.  I colored them with Spectrum Noir markers.  I added the sentiment from the same set.  I also added 2 monsters to the inside of the card. ~ Gracie

Shine and Sparkle Sunday #34-2017

Let's shine and sparkle with Gracie today.


Our added challenge this week is to use something we have had for over a year - walk in my craft room - not a problem lol!  Today I chose some black and white ribbon and used it for inspiration.  I love black and pink together.  I found some pink polka dotted cardstock and made a card base.  Using white cardstock I embossed the flower and sentiment from a set from Raison Boat.  I colored the flower with Spectrum Noir markers and added some Wink of Stella for my sparkle.  I also added some glitter enamel dots.  I mounted the white panel on bright blue cardstock and turned it slightly before adhering. ~ Gracie

Shapely Saturday 33-2017

If you are looking for the Stamping on Patterned Paper Blog Hop, please click here or scroll down.

Rectangles can get a little boring, so Saturday's we mix things up by choosing a different shape.


I am always challenged when it comes to a shape card. Today's card I was inspired by a video from Scrapbooking with ME on YouTube. I used the Prima Rose Quartz paper collection and I changed up the closure on mine I used ribbon to tie it shut. and added a sentiment on the one side to keep it flat when you open it. Here is the link for the video where she gives measurements and everything, also this is called the Ultimate Twist card.  You can view a video on this fold here. - Tantalaya

Our team's cards for this challenge start with Gracie.





I made a trip to Tuesday Morning!  But I really found some bargains.  I got a pad of Graphic 45 paper for $2.99 and a Graphic45 stamp set for $3.99!  They were perfect for the cards I made for today.  The stamp set is "Time to Celebrate".  I couldn't decide which to use so I made 2 cards.  The 1st is feminine; the 2nd masculine.  I stamped no the with clear embossing powder and embossed with Ranger copper embossing powder.   It just looked vintage.  I added bronze charms to each card and twine to the masculine card.  I love the different patterns. ~ Gracie 

Denise has three cards.



In the past few years I purchased a couple of books from thrift shops.  One was Roget's Thesaurus published in 1977 for 45 cents and a volume of the Encyclopedia  Britannica published in 1907.  It is only one volume (XX Prussia to Rossetti) and the cover was torn and partially missing, so I bought it specifically to use in my paper crafting.  I looked through to see what would work with any stamps I had and decided that pages from the sections for "road" and "railway" would work great with  a stamp set from Graphic 45 called Come Away With Me.  I stamped the train and car on those pages and used the same sentiment as a banner attached with some plaid washi tape.  I blended with distress ink around both the tag and the torn page.  For the top card I took a page from the Thesaurus for plants and used the section referring to mostly flowers.  I stamped with an image from Unity Stamp Company's KOM for August called Never Be Afraid.  I painted it with Distress Inks.  I also painted a white piece of paper with the red Distress Ink used for the blooms and then stamped the sentiment from CTMH Holiday Tags Occasions.  A piece of red raffia ribbon and it was done. - Denise

Finally Sue brings us two cute cards.



I’ve made two cards, both are kind of similar. I stamped using outline stamps and fussy cut the images.

For the first card, I used Simon Says STAMP One With Nature stamp set. I chose three printed papers (in the green family) and stamped the trees. I fussy cut them. Then, keeping with the “nature” theme, I used some natural-fibre ribbon to separate the trees from the sentiment.

For the second card, I used Simon Says STAMP Artful Flowers stamp set. I chose three pink-ish printed papers and stamped the outline flowers. I fussy cut them. I used some Nuvo drops for the center of the flowers for a bit of shine. The sentiment is from Simon Says STAMP Flower Friend stamp set.- Sue 
Now you’re off to visit with Debbie. Hope you had fun and thanks for stopping by.  See you next month with another technique!
