Kaisercraft Hexagon Challenge

New  Challenge

       I made this birthday card  using hexagon shapes for the Kaisercraft challenge
The paper was Kaisercraft wild violet paper collection.  I cut the hexagons from my silhouette Cameo and I added some sequins  for bling.   I also added it to the Simon Says Monday challenge since the hexagons were done with a floral paper.

ANOTHER GET WELL KNEE SURGERY CARD

    A card for a friend

          I made a knee surgery card a few weeks ago and I had to come up with another one.
The stamps I used are from Art Impressions girlfriend stamps .  I made a slit in her leg and put a bandage on her knee.  I also made a matching envelope using the same stamp sets.    I sponged and embossed the background.

DECORATED COOKIE BOX

Its all about the cookies

    I love to bake and make cards and gift boxes.   What a great combination
The following cookie box  was cut from my Silhouette Cameo  and  sponged with  Distressed inks
to match the color challenge  from Ellen Hutson.   The stamp set used is from Ellen Hutson it is the leading lady  baker set.  They are such cute stamps.  Unfortunately I was not able to capture the beautiful colors of the box because of the lighting.  It was sponged in  green and blue.

FUN WITH GELATOS

Metallics

I had never tried gelatos before.  The background of my card was embossed with a gear folder and rubbed with metallic gelatos in bronze, silver and blue.  The car   and happy birthday  are die cuts using metallic bronze paper.

OLYMPIC CHALLENGE EVENT # 2

More Olympic  Ideas

I have to say ,  I am enjoying this challenge.   The second event is easier.  It just has to be a winter card  of course still using only  My Favorite Things  stamps, dies or stencils. 

This is my entry




I always loved these happy rabbits.   The set is call Snuggle Bunnies.   I cut a piece of card stock to make them each  an Olympic metal.    I inked the background using the hill stencil  and distressed ink.    The sentiment is  from   the Happy Hippo set.

OLYMPIC CARD CHALLENGE MY FAVORITE THINGS EVENT#1

What  a challenge

This card represents the first event of the Olympic challenge, Stamping Slalom
We had to make a card using three different sets of My Favorite Thing Stamps. We were not able to use any other stamp images .

This is what I came up with.


I decided to make the Olympic mascots  using the bears in  the Fur ever Friends stamp set.
I masked out his mussel and drew stripes on one and the other one I colored with copic markers.
The background was sponged using the cloud  and hill stencils   using distressed ink.
I used the  balloons  to make the Olympic symbol from the Adorable Elephant set.  The hat was taken from Happy Hippo set and the sentiment was from the Magical Unicorn set.
