Moose Birthday Card

Hello all!  I am posting on the Victorine Originals blog today with this moose birthday card.
I started with some cream cardstock and stamped the Moose stamp from Victorine Originals using Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  I then tightly shaded it with Prisamcolor colored pencils.  I created a mask for the moose by stamping it on a post-it note and then fussy cutting around it.  I then stamped the VO Grove of Trees stamp with Vivid! Green ink.  I stamped it again in a different spot without re-inking to get the faded trees in the background.
Once I had the scene the way I liked it, I used a GMD Square Die to cut around the moose and a GMD stitched rectangle die around the whole stamped area.  I layered both die cut panels with a dark brown cardstock and popped up the moose panel with foam tape.  The sentiment is from the VO Elegant Sayings stamp set.

Remember to stop by the Victorine Originals Blog to participate in the current Back to School challenge.  You can use the theme, images, and/or colors for inspiration!

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!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

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.
