Shelly- Anything Goes

The challenge at Sweet Stamps for this week is Anything Goes. I used one of the new clear stamps named Emma. I colored her with Copic markers.

  I made the shimmery flower embellishments using the Globcraft and Piccalo elements and Turquoise Lagoon Enamel Embossing Powder.

We'd love to have you join us for this week's challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!

My garden makes everyone happy!

Hello my dear crafty friends! Today is my turn to show you my Garden creation made for our Sweet Stamps new weekly challenge. I know that its the last day to enter this challenge, but then who knows? You can do a card or another GARDEN PROJECT and even to  win!
So here is my card for today: stamped Mixed Media card made with   one of the new in SS shop Memory box stencils: Modern Blooming Frame.



I used a light green colored texture paste  with this stencil and then misted the white cardstock with blue mist to get this look of my background.


Next step was to make my stamped panel and it was stamped with Wildflowers SS stamp in black. To make it pop I added some red blings over each flower  center and some glitter glue over the petals.
Finally I stamped this lovely sentiment from the new SS Simple Sentiments set. I love this font a lot and it's  a must to have set!

And now it's your turn! Enter our weekly challenge and you can win!

Art Nouveau Garden

Good morning Stampers! I'm glad to be back with you for another Guest Designer post. The theme for this week's challenge is 'In the Garden'! You can find that challenge here and I hope you play along with us this week. I actually combined the Monthly Technique Challenge along with the weekly challenge for this project. The Monthly challenge is to create a Double Side Step card and you can read more about that in the previous post.
For the center medallion, I used the Cabbage Rose ATC 1011Stamp and stamped out several images on white card stock. I colored three images with my alcohol markers and cut out the center part of the flower, the midsize section and the entire flower excluding the leaves. I cut out leaves from several of the images and kept those separate. In the next step, I assembled the flower using foam dimensional dots. I chose a die cut image of designer paper as the background for this center flower and attached the flower to this background with another foam dot. Once the flower was in place, I decided on where to place the leaves and then added a bit of Crystal Stickles for a little glitz!


The side panels were made using the Art Nouveau Vertical Border 4008 Stamp which I stamped onto smooth white card stock. I colored the leaves and flowers with alcohol ink markers and it looked good but I wanted a little something more. I decided to also color the background and when it was finished, it looked like designer paper which matched perfectly with the actual designer paper that I used on this card.

For the sentiment, I lined the card base with the same designer paper that I used to back the stamped images and then layered two additional die cuts on top. One in a contrasting but matching designer paper to which I added bling. The top layer is smooth white card stock that I stamped the Special Day Sentiment. I edged the die cut with a light aqua alcohol marker and added more stickles.

If you would like to see a complete materials list for this project, please visit this post on my blog.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
