Corrosive Challenge #109 – Seeing Stars

I promise I’ve been stamping, but I just haven’t been posting. I’ve been doing a lot of CASE’ing. I did make a card for this week’s Corrosive Challenge, to incorporate stars in our design. Here is my card for the week:

I kept this card fairly simple, a la PTI. I started with a Kraft Card Stock base. I used a PTI stamp set as well for Father’s Day. I incorporated additional stars in my patterned paper and with Versa Mark (stamped stars). Not too many details needed here, I don’t think. Thanks for having a look and I can’t wait to see what you all create!

Corrosive Challenge #107 – Mwah!

We have a Sketch Challenge today at the Corrosive Challenge blog. I’m also featuring an image from Digis With Attitude, called Tabatha and Tony. These are such adorable little tigers! Here is my card for the week:

I started with 110 lb. white Strathmore card stock. I added a basic black panel and layered on some patterned paper. I stamped Tabatha and Tony with Momento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them with copics. I smudged a little bit of the red on one of the hearts and it was hard to try to remove – oops! The sentiment is from a Flourishes set (Apple of My Eye). I cut and layered the main image with my circle nesties. I added a few self-adhesive rhinestones. A pretty simple card-just the way I like ’em!

Thanks for having a look. I can’t wait to see what everyone creates! Enjoy the day.

Corrosive Challenge #106 – Going Green

This week at the Corrosive Challenge blog, we are featuring the digi images of Digis with Attitude. My card using an image from this company will be shown next week. For this week, our challenge is to Go Green. I decided to make 2 cards this week, one with a St. Paddy’s Day theme and the other a Father’s Day card that my 6’2″ son will give my husband.

Here they are:

For this card, I used a stamp that I picked up from Michael’s. It is made by Hampton Art. I inked up the shamrock on its own using Momento Tuxedo Black and stamped it 4 times to make a medallion-type image (masked it off so the leaves wouldn’t overlap). I coloured the leaves with copics (G20, G21, G24). I added a green self-adhesive rhinestone in the centre. I then inked up the sentiment and stamped it below the shamrocks. I used my nestie circle and lacey cirlce dies to cut and frame it. My paper is 110 lb. white (Strathmore), Basic Black (SU) and Basic Grey & We R Memory Keepers (Tiffany’s) patterned paper. I tied some black & white gingham ribbon around the paper before adhering my main image.

and:

I used Karen Giron’s sketch from last week’s Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge for my layout. I started with a 110 lb white (Strathmore) card base. I used some scrap solid green CS and ran it through the Forest Branches CB EF. I adhered that to some Bassill dark brown paper. I also used some Basic Grey patterned paper layered with the same brown for my left-side panel. I stamped the tree from PTI (Father Knows Best) with Certainly Celery & Always Artichoke as well as Close to Cocoa and Early Espresso, since it’s a two-step stamping set. I also stamped the sentiment with Early Espresso and used circle nesties to cut and frame them. I added a strip of Certainly Celery under the sentiment and 3 buttons (PTI) to finish the card.

I hope you like them and I look forward to seeing what you create for this week’s challenge!
