Scrapy Land Challenge #96

Hello friends!

Welcome to Scrapy Land {Challenge #96}!  I'm very excited to share my project with you.

I used the Tonic Studios Wreath to make my card, but you can also use the Impression Obsession Spring Wreath Die.

I also used the Neat & Tangled Succulent Cover Plate Die.

I used Sticker Paper and did a "Kiss Cut" technique where I didn't cut all the way through using the Succulent Cover Plate. I peeled back the adhesive backing from the sticker paper and used 2 shades of glitter to create the background. I cut out the wreath twice and layered them together with some foam tape. A little bit of bling and a little bit of twine finished off the look.


The theme is always ANYTHING GOES using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.  In addition, we have TWO WINNERS for each challenge.  One will be a random winner and the other is chosen by the Design Team.  Each winner will receive a generous $10 gift certificate to Scrapy Land.

Scrapy Land carries over 55 brands of dies, so chances are you have a few of the brands in your stash!  You can see all the brands carried under the Products category.

Please link back to this Scrapy Land Challenge and include the link to this challenge on your blog post.  It would also be extremely helpful if you would list the brands of dies used in your project.  (Sometimes we can't tell if an item is a die cut or chipboard.)

We can't wait to see what you create!  It can be any style you like from CAS to mixed media and everything in between.    Just be sure there's a die cut from a brand that Scrapy Land sells!

SparkleNSprinkle - The Old Tractor

Hello crafty friends!

We started a brand new Stamp Reveal over at SparkleNSprinkle - and we have 3 beautiful stamps to choose from!  They are:  The Old Tractor, Feathered Friends and Sketched Pear.  Today I'm going to share a card featuring "The Old Tractor".  This is a perfect masculine stamp set, and you can even pick up the companion Farm Silhouettes & Sayings Digi Stamp with tons more farm sentiments!!!

Here is my SNS Supply List:

This is a really simple card (not all cards have to be complicated!!!). I started by stamping the main tractor image with a black ink and coloring with my Nuvo Marker Pens. 


Once I colored my image, I trimmed it down to size and added a bit of shading around the edges.


The sentiment was stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Irish Spring Embossing Powder. I went for a layered look on this card - so lots of 1/4" and 1/2" Tear-ific Tape was used to adhere all the layers. I find when making masculine cards you don't need a lot of "extra". 

I figured the tractor needed a bit of "bling", so I used my Quicky Glue Pen to add the Silver Dreams Glitter to the wheels of the tractor. I love this glue pen - it is precise and it dries pretty quickly too.


I did a bit of ink distressing on all the paper edges (I haven't done that in a long time!). Finally, I used the Nuvo Crystal Drops in Dark Walnut to accent the corners of the card.


I hope you enjoyed this quick make card! :)  You definitely want to add this stamp set to your collection - and if you want to take 10% off your order, you can use my special discount code "JessDT10" when you checkout at the SparkleNSprinkle store!!

See you really soon!!!
