Now here is my card for Lavinia World Challenge #5



Ingredients:

SugarCut Stars dies
Lawn Fawn Grassy Hillside die
Neenah Desert Storm paper
Blue Marble paper
Green paper
White glitter paper
Black ink
Versamark
Wow Under the Sea embossing powder
Copic markers
White gel pen
Gold gel pen
Spectrum Noir Sparkle Rose Quartz brush pen
Spectrum Noir Sparkle Cosmos brush pen
Spectrum Noir Sparkle Moonstone brush pen
Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter drops

For this card I made the base of the card with Neenah Desert Storm paper.  I took a piece of Blue Marble paper, some black ink and the Creeping Vine stamp and stamped the vine across the top of the paper.  I colored in the branch with a brown Copic marker.  I then stamped the Chasing Dreams stamp with the black ink and colored in her wings with the Spectrum Noir Rose Quartz brush pen.  I colored the snail in with a Purple and Green marker and filled in some of the lines with a White gel pen.  I used a Gold gel pen pen to color in the fairies hair.  I took some Green paper and the Lawn Fawn Grassy Hillside die and cut out the grass and added that to the paper.  I took the Fairy Orbs stamps and black ink and stamped them around the paper.  I colored in the center of the Fairy Orbs with the 3 different Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens.  I took the same markers that I colored the snail with and colored in some of the dots around the edge of the orbs and I also used the White gel pen to fill in some of the dots. I wanted more glitter in the center of the orbs so I used the Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter drops to make the orbs sparkle more.  I took some Versamark and stamped the dragonfly from the Fairy Bugs stamp set onto the paper and then heat embossed it with Wow Under the Sea embossing powder.  I took the White glitter paper and the stars die and the believe die and cut them out and added them to the card.

Scrapy Land Challenge #118


Our theme is always Anything Goes using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.  We have two winners for every challenge.  One winner is a random pick and the other winner is picked by the Design Team.  Both winners will each receive a $10 gift certificate to go shopping at the Scrapy Land Store.

For this A2 card I started by making the base of the card with a piece of Neenah Desert Storm Paper.  I took a piece of Neenah Solar White paper and the Frayed Burlap, Tumbled Glass, Evergreen Bough, and Salty Ocean distress oxide and applied them to the paper with my blending tool.  I spritzed some water onto the paper and then dried it with my heat gun, inked the edges with brown ink and attached that to the card base. I took some more Neenah Solar White paper and the Impression Obsession Sea Birds dies and the Heron & Lake die and cut them out.  I colored them in with copic markers and then added them to the card.  I took the Impression Obsession Fence die and some tan paper and cut out the fence, I cut it apart and inked it with brown ink and added that to the card.  I took some Green paper and the Impression Obsession Small Grass die and cut that out and added it to the card.  I took some White paper and the Memory Box Swirl Switch Clouds die and cut out the clouds and added one to the card.

I took my Girl Scout Troop to the 95th Girl Scout Sing-Along back in 2007 in Washington D.C. and it was a wonderful experience seeing all those Girl Scouts in one place ~ it was a wave of Girl Scouts singing together!


I used Sizzix Broadway Melody alphabet dies to make the title.  I used Mrs. Grossman Washington D.C. Destinations Card Stock Sticker.  The flag border stickers are from an old Close To My Heart paper pack kit.

Lasting Memories Layout Challenge #453 ~ Patriotism - Red & White

Hello Blogging Friends!!


Today I am sharing a layout I made that I am going to enter into the Lasting Memories Layout Challenge #453 ~ Patriotism - Red & White.



My birthday is on July 1st and we usually go out on the River Lady Paddleboat for the 4th of July to celebrate my birthday and to see the fireworks from the boat.  For this layout I used Bo Bunny Anthem paper for the background.  The Red and White Lifebuoy was from a swap I participated in and I added the red lettering. I love the simplicity of this layout.
