Victorine Originals Challenge #7 ~ Back To School

Happy Friday! Today is the start of a new challenge at the Victorine Originals blog with the theme of "Back To School". Here is what I created for inspiration!
I created this card by using the following stamps from Victorine Originals:  Backgrounds set, Crayon, and Back to School.  I used Distress Inks in Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, Mustard Seed and Fired Brick for all the colors and background.  The square with the crayons was cut with GMD Up & Down In & Out cut square dies.  I used my Hampton Art Stamp Perfect to align the crayons on the paper.
For embellishments, I chose a rainbow ribbon and GMD Patriotic Sparkle enamel dots.
Head on over to the Victorine Originals blog and check out their challenge post. You have two weeks to enter your project/s that follow the following theme and/or color scheme. They do not have to use Victorine Originals stamps on them. We can't wait to see what you create!

Trendy Twine ~ Hello Sweetie Treat Bag

Happy Thursday!  I am sharing this sweet treat bag on the Trendy Twine blog today.
I decorated the Kraft Tin Tie Bag with papers from DCWV's Sweet Stack and the sheer ribbon from the Pretty In Pink Ribbon Set.  Then I adhered oval die cuts of that yummy cake to the center of the bag and finished that off with a bow of Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine.
I added a Kraft Tag-Its to the bag that was stamped with images from the APB Foodies stamp set and a sentiment from the APB You & Me stamp set.  I also added a Pink Midnight Trendy Page Dot to the tag and finished it off with a tassel of Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine, a pink pom-pom trim from the Pretty In Pink Ribbon Set and some white gel pen doodling.

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Dance In The Rain Card

Hello all!  Happy Wednesday.  Today is my day to post on the Victorine Originals blog.  I created a card that is a little different from what I usually make to share with you.  This one has a lot of watercoloring on it.
I started out by stamping the Victorine Originals Dance in the Rain stamp with Versafine Onyx Black Ink onto Canson XL Watercolor paper and then heat embossing it with WOW Clear embossing Powder.  I added the green grass and the rainy gray background with watercolors.  I then used Stampabilities Slate Gray ink and the Victorine Originals Backgrounds set to add little flecks on the background paper.  I added a pair of die cut rain boots by the sentiment.
For the top of the card, I cut three clouds using GMD stitched cloud border dies and papers from the DCWV Silver Leaf stack.  I wrapped Bumblebee Trendy Twine around them for a little pop of color and then adhered them to the background that I had created.

Remember, we have our Ahoy Landlubbers challenge going on right now!  Here is the inspiration photo for it.  You can use the pictures, theme, and/or colors to enter.

Bee Hive Card

Hello crafty friends!  I am on the SVG Attic blog today with this bee hive card.
This card was solely inspired by some new papers I got!  The DCWV Watercolor Garden stack had these amazing bee inspired papers in it and I knew I had to make something with them, so this card was created!  The file I used from SVG Attic is from the JGW Blooming Card kit.
I distressed the cuts with various colors of Distress Inks to add more dimension to the card.  I kept it pretty simple, only adding a few sequins for embellishments.
Here is a look at the kit that I used:

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

With Love Peek-a-Boo card

Today I wanted to share a card that uses a peek-a-boo technique on it.  I have seen others make cards that have an open area on the front, and I finally got around to making one like that!
I started with pink holographic foiled paper from Recollections' Modern Bouquet stack in A2 size.  Then I lined up the GMD Heart Confetti Cutter die at the bottom of the front and die cut it.  Easy as that!  I added a strip of black cardstock on the inside to cover a bit of the open area.  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps Simple Everyday Greetings set.  A bit of washi tape, GMD Watermelon Color enamel dots and a heart that was from the die cut were the only embellishments on this card.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Twine ~ Sweet Treats Shaker Tag

Happy Thursday! I am sharing this yummy shaker tag on the Trendy Twine blog today.
I started out by die cutting the tag shape from DCWV Peri & Peach stack papers using an unbranded tag die from eBay.  I stamped the words on the background paper and then stamped images from the APB Foodies stamp set and fussy cut them.  Most of those were added into the shaker, but I adhered the cupcake to the front corner.  I then added Frosty Sequins and sealed up the shaker part with foam tape.
The Pink Midnight Trendy Page Dot was a fun touch around the hole of the tag.  I added Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine along the sides of the shaker tag and as a tassel at the top.  I finished it off with a bow of Totally White Trendy Twine around the tassel.

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

This card features several Gina Marie Designs dies from Scrapbook Outlet including GMD Fleur Oval die set, GMD Iron Lanterns die set and GMD Stitched Rectangles die set.
The patterned papers are from DCWV's Cranberry Christmas stack.  The sentiment uses the APB Merry Christmas stamp set, Versamark Chalk White ink and WOW white embossing powder.  I used Cranberry Trendy Twine to add the sign to the lamppost.  The glow behind the lamp was created by sponging Antique Linen Distress Ink on the white background.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Victorine Originals Challenge #6 ~ Ahoy Landlubbers

Happy Friday! Today is the start of a new challenge at the Victorine Originals blog with the theme of "Ahoy Landlubbers". Here is what I created for inspiration!
I started by making the ship stamp from the Victorine Originals Ship Set my focal point of the card.  It is simply stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink on white paper.  I die cut the image out with a Cottage Cutz stitched square die.  The background was created by using various strips of paper from DCWV's Beach House stack and making them into banners and adhering them to my card base.
The sentiment is from the V.O. Floral and Sayings stamp set and I stamped it on vellum with Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  A couple of brads held the vellum in place.
So, now on to the details on how to play along with the challenge...
Head on over to the Victorine Originals blog and check out their challenge post. You have two weeks to enter your project/s that follow the above theme and/or color scheme. They do not have to use Victorine Originals stamps on them. We can't wait to see what you create!

Cardinal Wreath Card

Hello everyone!  Today I am changing things up a bit and sharing a Christmas card with you.  This one features the Layered Cardinal Die from Gina Marie Designs.
Honestly, this bird is stunning!  I love all the different layers that you can ink to add extra dimension.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Fired Brick and Weathered Wood on the cardinal and Mowed Lawn on the wreath.  Speaking of the wreath, that was created by using the two larger sizes of the GMD Regal Doily Circle Die simultaneously.  I think it made a wonderful wreath, don't you?
The two base layers of the card were die cut with GMD stitched rectangle dies.  The zig zag stamp along the sides of the woodgrain panel is a BoBunny Stitches stamp.  I used Memento Rich Cocoa ink on it.  The sentiment is from APB Let It Snow stamp set, and that was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I used my Hampton Art Stamp perfect with all of the stamps on this card.
That bow up at the top...it is from the GMD Ice Skate die set.  I embellished the wreath with Xmas Red Stickles.  All of the papers used on this card were from DCWV's Merry Memories stack.
The adhesives I used were Tombow Xtreme, ATG, foam tape and Zig 2 Way pen.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Serenity Prayer Cross Card

Happy Wednesday!  Today is my day to post on the Victorine Originals blog.  It is a serenity prayer card.
First, I stamped the Victorine Originals Serenity Prayer Cross stamp using Versafine Onyx Black ink and my Hampton Art stamp press on paper from DCWV's Country Floral stack.  I used GMD Crochet Lace Oval dies to cut and layer the stamp.  A GMD scalloped stitched rectangle die was used for the background cut.
For embellishments, I used GMD Sunset colors enamel dots and pretty roses that matched the patterned paper.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
