Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #362

Hello friends!



Easy peasy lemon squeezy? Yes please!  I love anything with lemons - and this bright and fun card just makes me smile! This is my last card in my summer SCT Sampler series - I hope you enjoyed them! :) I think it's time to play with something else from my stash. Hmmm...I wonder what will be next?

I've been playing along with the sketches from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge for years now and every week I'm inspired to create!  This week my cards are based on the following sketch:

Creative Knockouts Challenge #343 - Anything Goes

Hello crafty friends!

It's time for a new challenge over at Creative Knockouts Challenge #343. Our theme this week is "Anything Goes” and our sponsor is the amazing “Fabrika Fantasy". I actually decided to make two cards because I was having fun!  I'm using the "Fairy-Tale Unicorn" stamp this week. So classic! Everyone needs a cute unicorn stamp, right?

I used the image and resized it a bunch of times to create a background paper and then printed a full sized unicorn for the focal image! So cute!  I wanted fun and cheerful during this time of social distancing. It sure is a crazy world right now, isn't it?


Here is what I created:




I hope to see you at the challenge! :)

Until next time,

Jess

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #361

Hello friends!



Party time!  This card is so fun and festive!  How cute is that pompom trim? A quick hint when adding some pompoms - I attach the trim at the back of the card front, but then I trim off the pompom part so it still lays flat! I'm almost done with my Summer SCT Sampler - it's crazy how many cards you can create from them. 


I've been playing along with the sketches from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge for years now and every week I'm inspired to create!  This week my cards are based on the following sketch:

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #360

Hello friends!



Okay - I don't often play favorites, but THIS card right here is probably one of my most favorites that I have made in a long time!  I don't know if it's the leaves or the color combo - or the fact that it's so summery and light - but I just LOVE it!!! It's still out of my SCT Sampler Stashbuster project - so I can't even remember who made the paper line! But I adore it! The cardstock is Blushing Bride from Stampin' Up! - that I know for sure. Some CTMH Gold Shimmer Trim and Gold Gems were the perfect accents too.

I've been playing along with the sketches from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge for years now and every week I'm inspired to create!  This week my cards are based on the following sketch:

Happy Birthday Dude with Rinea

Hello crafty friends!


I have a fun new card to share with you today using Rinea products - this one is more on the masculine side! We are still working with our Creative Embellishment products, and I'm using some Brick Pieces Chipboard & 80's Slang Words on this card.


Supply List:





Sandpaper

Cardstock

Stamps

Thick Embossing Powder

Versamark Ink

This card will come together quickly for you!  I promise :)

Start with a piece of Ebony Starstruck Foiled Paper that is appox 4" by 5.25" as your background. Adhere the Brick Chipboard to the background in the location you want. I sprinkled some super thick embossing powder on the pieces and heat set for some extra dimension.

  


My Ruby/Gold Glossy piece came next. It's cut approx 1/4" smaller than the Ebony Starstruck. I carefully noted the position where the chipboard elements were added and made a slit in the Foiled Paper before adhering around the edges. Once it was adhered, I simply started tearing, sanding and distressing the Foiled Paper until the chipboard was exposed and I had the desired effect.

  

Next up was the DUDE Chipboard! I covered the piece with Versamark Ink and sprinkled on my Super Thick Embossing Powder - then heat set! Pretty quick and simple technique here.

 

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment onto the Mocha/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper using Ghost Ink, let it dry for a few seconds, then wiped off the ink. Voila! Sentiment exposed perfectly. (If you want to learn more about the Ghost Ink, please check out my post HERE).

 

Finally, I glued down the DUDE, adhered my sentient with foam squares and mounted the entire panel onto my cardbase.

  



Thanks for stopping by! I had a ton of fun making this card - and I know you will too!

Creative Knockouts Challenge #341

Hello crafty friends!

It's time for a new challenge over at Creative Knockouts Challenge #341. Our theme this week is "Border Time” and our sponsor is the amazing “Fred She Said”. I chose to work with a stamp set called "Sunflowers and Thankfulness ”. I chose this image because the flowers were borders themselves! Perfect for the theme :)



Here is what I created:


With Easter around the corner, I felt that the scripture based cards are a perfect thought. A wash of watercolor was all this image really needed - it’s just so pretty! Nothing fancy on the card this time - I kept it very clean and simple.

I hope to see you at the challenge! :)

Until next time,

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #359

Hello friends!



This card was fun and easy breezy to make! A few stickers, a quick stamp and voila!  I love working through a stashbuster phase - you quickly forget all the cool things that you loved and previously purchased. I think in the craft world, we are soooo obsessed with what's new that we buy and buy and buy without truly creating with what we fell in love with and already have!  The NEW will always be there - I'm challenging you to go and use up some of what you already have.


I've been playing along with the sketches from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge for years now and every week I'm inspired to create!  This week my cards are based on the following sketch:


The sketch was created by Michelle Stewart and digitized by Brandi Robinson.

Supplies:
- SCT Sampler from summer 2019 (approx)
- Close to My Heart Embellishments

Die Cut & Star Stampz Challenge with Creative Knockouts

Hello crafty friends!

It's time for a new challenge over at Creative Knockouts Challenge #339. Our theme this week is "Punches/Die Cuts and our sponsor is the amazing "Star Stampz".  I chose to work with a stamp set called "Spring Bumblebee” - she just too cute! Plus spring is around the corner, I just feel it!  I pulled out some older Tonic Studio dies to create this card. I kind of like this stashbusting trend I have going on - working with Digital Stamps is a great way to incorporate something new with physical supplies you already have. 

Here is what I created:


I hope to see you at the challenge! :)

Until next time,

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #357

Hello friends!



I've had a few SCT Samplers kicking around, so for the next few AHSC posts, you will see me using them up! If you don't know what the SCT Sampler is, you can check it out here. In a nutshell, it's a mini membership that gets you a "sample" pack of different craft supplies from various companies each month! I had a few of them piling up that I hadn't used, so I made myself put my membership on hold until I used them. How's that for self-blackmail? haha 

I don't know why it took me so long to use them! There are tons of cute papers and embellies! Plus, stamp sets and tools like embossing folders sometimes too. I believe I have made the next 6 Challenge cards from last summer's sampler .


I've been playing along with the sketches from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge for years now and every week I'm inspired to create!  Here is this week's sketch:

Rinea Ghost Ink Hap-bee Birthday Card

Hello crafty friends!


I have a fun new card to share with you for Rinea this week.  If you recall, in my last Rinea post, I created various backgrounds using the new Ghost Ink 2.0 (see post here!).  This week, I'm sharing a card I created with one of those backgrounds! 

Here are the supplies I used:

I followed up on the bee theme and did a little free painting with the Ghost Ink Re-Inker. Simply dip your paintbrush (as show in the video) and paint where you want the color of the Foiled Paper to be removed! Let it sit for about 10-12 seconds and wipe with a cloth. Voila!  The color is magically removed.  

 


You an also do some freehand writing with the paintbrush and Ghost Ink 2.0 Re-Inker! Here is an example:


You are just going to love the new ink. Guess what? I used the Misfits Foiled Paper Variety Pack for all of these projects! The Misfits are just perfect for trying new techniques. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Want to save 10% off your next Rinea purchase? Use code "JESSICAKAISER" and shop HERE.

I hope you will go out and make your own cool backgrounds. See ya soon!

1- image
1- sentiment
2- different pattern papers
3- embellies (3 of the same or 3 different items)

Here is what I created:


I stamped the image with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink, embossed the image with clear embossing powder and watercolored with Nuvo AquaFlow Pens.
