Here is Paper Smooches this week's Anything Goes challenge. Below are the challenge photos:


I decided to make a cute Christmas stocking card using the stocking stamp in the All Yule Need set. For the background, I used the clear stripe stamps to make the plaid background. Below are the photos to build up this plaid background:


I picked both red and grey ink pads to make this plaid background.


Here is the finished card:


The Christmas stocking was stamped in black and colored with green Copic markers on top and stamped the red plaid at the bottom using masking method. I colored the whole stocking with the clear Wink of the Stella pen to make it shiny.

Inside the card, I stamped the "believe in the magic" and silver embossed it.

Imagine Watercolor Flower Card

I went to a local stamp show last Saturday and bought some stamp sets from Rubber Necker. I used one of the sets to create this water color poppy card to attend the Runway Inspired Challenge. Here are the challenge photos:



And below is the card I made:


This flower set is a two step stamping set. First I colored the flower petals with Distress markers and spritz water, then stamped it on the white cardstock. Then, I used Versamark ink pad to ink the outline flower stamp and gold embossed it. The text of "imagine" was also gold embossed. I cut a wavy stripe with a die and dip the edge into Versamark, then gold embossed the edge. I mount the white cardstock on the orange texture cardstock, then on a white card. Below is a closer look of the flowers:


I also used the gold Wink of the Stella pen to add some dots around the flowers. Love the clean and watercolor look of the card.

Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI, Tim Holtz
Stamps: Rubber Necker
Ink Pads: Versamark, Distress ink pad
Die: Lawn Fawn
Others: Distress markers, gold embossing powder, gold Wink of the Stella pen

For the background, I applied Distress ink pads with different shade of browns and oranges on the white cardstock. Then, I sprayed water on the Tim Holtz wood grain stencil and "stamp" on top of the colored distress background. After I lift the stencil, it becomes this beautiful wood grain background. For the rocking horse, I used Copic markers to color it and attached it on the white circle die cut with foam tapes. I also glued a googly eye on the horse to add interest. The text "you rock" was black embossed on the background. Here is the closer look of the rocking horse:

Hero Arts Holiday Challenge - White Out

Hero Arts has a Holiday Challenge with four different categories to enter. Below is the challenge photo:



I decide to pick the "White Out" category and make a Christmas card with the new stamp set "Christmas Crystals" I just got. Here is the card I made:



For the white background, I used Hero Arts background stamp and white embossed on the white cardstock. Then, I applied the matching Sizzix embossing folder to make the white embossed stamp image popping out. I used a circle die and cut a circle on the background. For the crystal ornament, I white embossed it on the watercolor paper, then colored with water brush and Distress ink pads. After the ink dry, I colored the whole crystal ornament with the Wink of Stella pen to make it shinny. Then, I cut out the crystal ornament and attached in the middle of the circle, I also cut a small piece of gold thread to "hang" the ornament. I put foam tapes on the back of the background and attached on top of the crystal ornament. For the greeting of "JOY", I white embossed the wood veneer letters and glued on the background. Below is a closer look of the "JOY":



Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI, watercolor paper
Stamps: Hero Arts
Ink Pads: Versamark, Distress ink pads
Others: embossing folder, white embossing powder, wood veneer, Wink of Stella pen, foam tapes, circle die, gold thread
