Card Making, Challenges, Power Poppy

Using Kraft Cardstock (Color)

Hello my friends, today’s card was inspired by this week’s challenge over at Seize the Birthday to use KRAFT.

I used one of my favorite stamps from Power Poppy for this one. I stamped the image with Versa Mark, embossed with white fine detail embossing powder, and colored it  using Prisma Color Pencils (I have the 24 set and that is sufficient for me).

I would like to also like to participate in the challenge over at Dream Valley Challenges (birthday).

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Sketch #205

Well here we are the end of 2013 and I am still trying to keep up with all the sketches. This week’s OWH Sketch Challenge #205 can be found here. I’ve only gotten to sketch 104 this past year and my goal is to be caught up by March (we’ll see how that goes). So for now here is my version of Sketch #205.


Kraft cardstock, woodgrain background stamp, large scale background stamp on the strip behind the tree and the circle dies are all from My Favorite Things (MFT). The strip of DP is from GinaK Designs and the tree is from SU – Lovely as a Tree. I used a variation of the thumping technique on the tree using Tim Holtz Distress Markers. The tree and background strip behind it were stamped with Memories Sepia dye ink. The woodgrain background was stamped with Kraft color ink from MFT – I love tone on tone stamping it is one of my favorite card making techniques.

Wishing everyone many blessings in 2014 and look forward to interacting with those who share the same passion (cardmaking for the troops) and meeting new people here on the blogs – or perhaps in person! Trying to connect with other OWH card makers here on the east coast – yea! Anywhere from Maine to Florida. It’s amazing the people you can meet by just driving half way.  God bless all of you and keep up the good work! I love how you all inspire me.


Nobody’s Perfect

The hairdresser I go to (Missy) has a plaque hanging on her wall and it always makes me chuckle. It  inspired me to make this card. The sentiment was printed on the computer. Supplies used – Darice ef, kraft cardstock, the branch is from a stamp set called It’s a Zoo, the owl is from TCP Studio called Whimsical Birds. The leaves on the branches were colored with Copics and Inkssentials white enamel accents was used for the eyes.
