Hello–C4C #263

C4C263_2014nov22


Hi, all, and welcome to Crazy 4 Challenges! Today we’re challenged to use “Hello” on our cards or projects. I might have overdone it ;-)

I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then, on a trimmed down panel of Sweet Tooth card stock, I stamped the “HELLO” sentiment from LJD Sea Life over and over with some of the new pigment inks: Red Hot pigment ink, Orange Fizz pigment ink, Lemon Drop pigment ink, Sour Apple pigment ink, Blu Raspberry pigment ink, and Grape Jelly pigment ink. I popped that up on foam, then cut a bold “hello” from Black Licorice card stock using Happy Hellos Die-namics. I popped that up on foam on a strip of Sweet Tooth card stock, adhered it, and it was done.

A sentiment from Get Well Wishes was stamped on the inside with Black Licorice pigment ink.

Warmest Wishes–Catered Crop Finale: Anything Goes!

1cateredcrop_2014nov20

Well, here we are at the very last Catered Crop Recipe Challenge. I’ve had a blast designing with this team and I’m wishing Linda all of the wonderful things that life holds for her in the future. Love you, girl!!

Today’s challenge is Anything Goes! So I hope you will play along and give the Catered Crop Challenge a fine send-off! I inked up a set I didn’t get around to during release last week—BB Warmest Wishes. What a fun image to color it is! I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then added a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock stamped with Sweater Stitch Background and Bubblegum dye ink, at an angle. Next is a panel of Grout Gray card stock stamped with the snowflake image from the set, stamped with Sweet Tooth pigment ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder, popped up on foam. Next is the image, cut with BB Warmest Wishes Die-namics and stamped with the coordinating image, then colored with Copic markers, also popped up on foam. The sentiment was stamped on a strip of Black Licorice card stock with Sweet Tooth pigment ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder, as well. A Let It Snowflake Die-namics glitter snowflake, and Bubblegum button, and some silver cord finish it off.

Another sentiment from the set was stamped on the inside with Black Licorice hybrid ink, along with more snowflakes, stamped with Grout Gray dye ink.

Happy Birthday–MFTWSC #203 + In the Background Video

MFTWSC203_2014nov19


Hey, there! It’s Wednesday noon so it must be time for this week’s
MFTWSC! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch. All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

Today I’m also sharing a video showing how I mix up my ink spray and how I make the splattered backgrounds. In this video I also show how I constructed today’s card. To view it, either click on the button below or you can watch in HD
HERE on my YouTube channel.


Here’s a quick run-through of how I made this card, too. I started with a Kraft card stock base, then I added my splatter layer, done on Primitive White card stock. I added a Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics cut from Kraft card stock, a piece of Primitive White card stock stamped with Spotlight Sentiments and Kraft ink, and a gift accent using LJD Celebrate You and LJD Celebrate You Die-namics in Paver Red dye ink and Jellybean Green dye ink.

A sentiment from LJD Birthday Greetings was stamped on the inside with Paver Red dye ink.
