Ravens Birthday Card

This card started when I found these raven stickers on clearance in Michael’s a few weeks ago.

I knew I was going to use them on a card for my sibling’s birthday. Just not quite sure HOW.

Until I stumbled upon the blog post titled “Stampin’ Up! Inspiration Saturday “ (posted on October 11, 2014) on the Scrapbook and Cards Today Blog .

I was inspired by the use of the spiral border punch on the card with the French sentiment (3rd card down). I definitely knew how I wanted to frame my raven stickers.

The funny thing is, I even have a filmstrip die that the raven stickers would fit into perfectly…but I can never get the paper out of the die after I cut it without ripping it to bits.

Supplies: Stamp – Reverse Confetti, paper – football paper (source unknown), Papertrey Ink White, Stampin’ Up! Brushed Gold, ink – Copic C3, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies (square, rectangle tag) – Spellbinders, raven stickers – Recollections, spiral border punch – Stampin’ Up!, embossing powder – Stampin’ Up! Black Detail Powder.

Here is my take on the latest Runway Inspired Challenge ric#69 .

The inspiration for this challenge was this look from Cynthia Rowley’s Spring 2015 collection:

I struggled a bit with this, sometimes my brain wants to be too literal and I don’t have the supplies my brain wants to use. So, I chose to use the colors, the flower to the right of the model, and a vertical black accent.

Thanks for stopping by!

Creamy Caramel (retired), Daffodil Delight, VersaFine Onyx Black, Vintage Sepia (under gold embossing), embossing powders – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, Stampin’ Up! Gold Detail Powder.

Peaceful Holiday Card – PTI Make It Monday #184

pti make it monday 184

This week’s Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge (#184) is titled Dipped Die Cuts, and is about highlighting the edge of a die cut with embossing powder.

(oops! As I am setting up this post, I realize the title of the challenge is GOLD Dipped Die Cuts. Metallic is metallic…I’m sticking with my silver!)

I knew immediately that I wanted to use the Papertrey Ink tree die, and make a holiday card. Digging through my embossing powders, I found a tube of Martha Stewart Sterling Glitter embossing powder. To finish my card, I searched high and low through my stamps (including the ones on the crawl space in the basement – no luck there) to find this old PSX Designs sentiment.

Supplies: Stamp – PSX Designs, paper – Papertrey Ink White, Stampin’ Up! Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi (textured), inks – Copic E57, VersaFine Onyx Black, VersaMark, Wink of Stella, dies – Papertrey Ink (tree), Stampin’ Up! (banner), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder, Martha Stewart Sterling Glitter Embossing Powder, organdy ribbon – JoAnn’s.
