Snowflakes!

Monday, July 20th, 2020

Hi All!  It’s Nancy and I am back today with one of the July prompts for the Scrap ‘n Stamp Random Acts of Cardness….  for today’s challenge word, you need to create with snowflakes!  Anyone that’s been around here for a while knows how much I LOVE snowflakes.  I don’t like winter and I don’t like snow… but I sure do love snowmen and snowflakes!

The challenge for me was deciding what snowflakes to use!

I don’t know how well you can see it in my photo, but the blue behind the snowflake window is all glittery.  I didn’t have enough of piece of appropriate blue glitter cardstock, so I made my own!  I simply used one of my Life Changing Blending Brushes and some Gina K ink to create a blue panel with a bit of a gradient (it’s a little darker at the bottom than it is at the top) and then I used a palette knife to cover the entire inked background with Nuvo Glimmerpaste in Moonstone.  I set it aside to dry before adhering the die cut panel to that glimmery piece of goodness.  I then added it to a card base with foam tape to add a little dimension.

Items Used:

*Cardstock:  Neenah Solar White 110lb

*Images:  MFT Giraffes on Ice

IF I KNOW ONE THING…

…it’s that My Favorite Things products are among my favorites to play with.

Always have been and always will be.

Hi Everyone! It’s Susan with today’s Random Act of Cardness prompt of  My Favorite Things.

I chose two of my favorite sets to play with; Safari Party and Sassy Pants Best Friends. Those Safari Party animals are so cute and the Sassy sentiments make me smile.

 

I stacked the animals on top of each because that’s reality lol and colored them in with Prismacolor Pencils. I added some simple shading  on the bottom to ground the images. I cut that panel to 3 x 4 3/4″ and using craft foam I layered it onto a panel that was cut to 4 x 5 1/4″ after I stamped the sentiment along the side using Versafine Claire Nocturne ink.

I layered it all onto a grey card base and called it done.

Now our challenge to you is to use your favorite MFT stamps & dies on a card and if MFT’s not your thing then use any of your favorite products. And be sure to share it with us on the Scrap’n Stamp Facebook Challenge Page.

 

Happy Stampin’
and thanks so much for visiting!
Stay safe everyone!!

Time For A Rainbow!

Friday, June 26th, 2020
Hey All… Nancy here again with a card using the Scrap ‘n Stamp 30 Day Random Acts of Cardness Challenge!  I am so glad I get to share a rainbow card with you!  Everyone knows I LOVE a good rainbow!

There’s just a few more days left in June for you to play along!  Post your cards on the Scrap ‘n Stamp Facebook Page or on Instagram with the hashtag #snschallenge and you will be entered in to a draw to receive a $50 gift card!  You can post as often as you want!

I had some fun playing with some square dies and a rainbow of colour…..
I cut each of the nesting squares using my Gemini Jr (although you could achieve a similar effect just cutting squares with your paper cutter).  I then used a craft knife, ruler and self healing cutting mat to cut each of the squares in half on a diagonal as my original idea for this card was to have just one side with the rainbow.  I then adhered the red square to my card front, making it as close to centred on the side as I could.  I then added each additional square in rainbow order.  I used glue for this project so that I could have a little wiggle time to try to get the pieces evenly placed.  It was when this part was done I decided to replicate the rainbow on the other side of the card.
To finish it off, I stamped this great greeting from Picket Fence Studios in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink, cut it in to a square and adhered it on top of the rainbows.
I can’t wait to see what rainbows you create!
