Addicted To Stamps And More #412 - Christmas...




Hi! I am back with another great challenge at the Addicted To Stamps And More blog. The theme this time is:


I decided to do some vintage style loose water-coloring this time. I am trying to master this technique and practicing a lot. Though I still have very far to go, I was quite happy with this panel.


I stamped the poinsettia image from the Jingle Bells stamp set by Mudra and colored it with distress inks. The sentiment is from the Christmas Greetings stamp set, also by Mudra Craft Stamps.


I stamped the sentiment and then die-cut the circle. I inked the edges for some definition and popped it up on foam tape. To finish I added the jute twine.


Here is another look at the card.

Addicted To Stamps And More #411 - Make Your Mark...

Hi! I am back with another great challenge at the Addicted To Stamps And More blog. The theme this time is:


I have been on a cleaning and organizing spree recently. I came across some images I had stamped and colored months ago. I had used the Beautiful Day stamp set by Altenew and cut them using the coordinating dies.


I took a strip of brown cardstock and cut it on both sides with the Altenew Creative Edges die. I added the lace strip to the card and then stacked the flowers over it. The leaves were cut using the dies from the Virginia Rose 3D die set.


The sentiment is from the Altenew Fresh Freesia stamp set.


Here is another look at the card.

Rainbow Card Challenge #32– Temptingly Teal…

Hi! Welcome to another month at the Rainbow Card Challenges. We have a beautiful mood board for you.



I pulled out my watercolors for this one.


I started with a piece of watercolor paper and did some ink smooshing with my watercolors. The secret to getting a good smooshed background is drying the colors between layers. 

Once I was happy with my background, I allowed the paper to dry completely and then ran it through the Monstera Leaves 3D embossing folder by Altenew. I had covered one side of the embossing folder with Versamark ink. I heat embossed that side with metallic gold embossing powder.


The sentiment is from the Seasonal Blooms stamp and dies set by Altenew. This is part of the new Craft Your Life kit. I used scraps of paper from the watercolor panel to assemble it.


Here is another look at the completed card.


I hope you liked my card and are inspired to create something beautiful! Please do check out the Rainbow Card Challenge blog for more inspiration. And don’t forget to link your cards to our gallery. I look forward to seeing your beautiful creations.

Addicted To Stamps And More #409 - Any Occassion...

Hi! I am back with another great challenge at the Addicted To Stamps And More blog. The theme this time is:


I have been busy clearing out my towering stash of scraps. So I created a quick card using some of them.


I found a large piece of paper colored with diagonal strips of watercolors. I simply cut out the Cascading Stars cover die by Fun Stampers Journey twice and layered both over a piece of black paper. Here is a closer look at the card


I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of the same sheet.


Here is another look at the card.

Rainbow Card Challenge #31 – Charmingly Cherry…

Hi! Welcome to another great challenge at the Rainbow Card Challenges. The mood board this month is very bold and dramatic!


I made a masculine card this time around. 


I started by inking one side of the Altenew Buffalo Plaid Embossing Folder with Candied Apple distress oxide ink using a small brayer. I then placed a piece of beige handmade paper inside and ran the folder through my Big Shot. 


I adhered the embossed paper to a red card base. The sentiment is a combo of two stamp sets. The top is from the Altenew Birthday Greetings stamp set. The bottom is from the Simon Says Stamp Sweet Cakes stamp set.


I added some black die-cuts to a smaller panel and popped it up. Here is another look at the completed card.


I hope you liked my card and are inspired to create something beautiful! Please do check out the Rainbow Card Challenge blog for more inspiration. And don’t forget to link your cards to our gallery. I look forward to seeing your beautiful creations.
