Some FURRY Tracey Hey Fun

Friday, February 11th, 2022

 

Happy Friday! Here we are, the weekend before Valentines Day, so I suppose I could have gone with something mushy for today’s Random Acts of Cardness prompt, but instead I chose FURRY! Not that we aren’t mushy with our furry friends. 😉  I also wanted to break out another Tracey Hey stamp set, and remind you there is still time to visit and comment on our Wild ‘n Whimsy Inspiration Hop for your chance to win one of these sweet stamp sets! And with that… here is my card:

 

 

 

Isn’t this little pup a cutie? While personally I always choose red rubber boots 😀  I decided to give this guy bright yellow ones. He comes from the Hot Dog set, along with two other sweet wiener dogs and accompanying sentiments. I added clouds and a sentiment from an older Lawn Fawn set. The sky and ground are distress inks, with the help of a die cut mask for the grass. The card base is made from sour apple My Favorite Things cardstock.

 

 

If you are wondering about the sentiment, it continues on the inside, along with a sticker from my previous teaching life:

Dreaming of a Summer Scene…

Monday, January 31st, 2022

 

Crazy but true, it’s the last day of January! That means it’s the last day to participate in this month’s Random Acts of Cardness Challenge – and I’m here today with a little inspiration for the prompt, SCENE. Where I am it’s still the depths of winter, but I can still dream, right?

 

 

Sand, surf, blue skies, a tropical drink – I like this dream scene! 😉  It’s made using On the Beach stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn. All the elements are coloured with Copic markers. Did you know that Scrap ‘n Stamp now carries MFT cardstock? I used Caribbean Sea for… the sea. The sky is blended with tumbled glass distress oxide ink, and the sand with antique linen stippled with a little gathered twigs.

My favourite part of this stamp set? The tiki drink is as big as the bear’s head. 😀

 

 

Don’t forget to play along with the Random Acts of Cardness challenge for your chance to win a $50 gift credit!

 

Welcome to Autumn!

Thursday, September 23rd, 2021

Today’s word prompt for the Scrap ‘N Stamp daily challenge is ‘trees’. It’s Deb here, from the Design Team! I chose that word, as I thought it would be the perfect way to say ‘welcome’ to autumn! As far as colours go, it has to be my favourite time of year. Plus, it’s a good excuse to cozy up with sweaters or blankets, especially with a good book.

COLOURS OF AUTUMN

I’ve been waiting to use this new Penny Black stamp, called Enlightened. It’s more about the leaves that the actual tree, but I figured that was close enough! Plus, it gave me a chance to  pull out my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers, for some watercolour.

Welcome to Autumn!

Don’t you just want to grab your favourite hot beverage, and snuggle on the couch? But wait – finish reading my post, first!

CARD DETAILS

Start with a piece of watercolour paper, set up in your stamp platform. Next, randomly add ink from your Carmine Red, Yellow, and Orange Zig markers, onto the leaves. Lightly spritz with water, and then press firmly onto the paper. Repeat this as many times as you like, until you’re happy with the colours. Next, use the Blue Gray marker for the lines, and the Light Green marker for the stems, and repeat the process.  If you don’t have markers, you could do this process with your Distress Ink pads, as well.

For the sentiment, I chose the Memory Box Harvest Love set. Stamp the sentiment onto vellum paper in Versamark ink. Next, cover the stamping with copper embossing powder, and heat set.  Repeat this with the smallest leaf stamp from this set. Colour the leaf using the same colours you used for the background.  This Harvest Love bundle comes with coordinating dies – use that with your Big Shot to die cut the leaf.  Die cut the sentiment with a stitched oval die, and then glue it onto the watercolour panel.

Layer the front panel onto a piece of copper glimmer paper using foam tape, and then attach these to an orange card base.  Attach the leaf using a foam square, and then glue on some sequins, to finish off your card.

Welcome to Autumn!

The copper embossing powder is so rich and warm!
