PageMaps (CardMaps) With Penny Black

Hi everybody! I had the great honor to make a card using one of the fun sketches from the July 2015 CardMaps with my Penny Black goodies. This is the sketch I got:


And this is my take on it:


I did some ink blending, fussy-cutting, die-cutting, Copic coloring and stenciling here. This is a close-up:


That dog is so fun! You can find all the July Sketches and samples here. There's also a printable pdf for you sketch lovers!

Sparkle & Shine Challenge Nine: Inspiration Photo sponsored by Pretty Pink Posh

Hey everyone! This is my second post of the day. For the Winnie & Walter Rerun please go here. It is time for the new Sparkle & Shine Challenge sponsored by Pretty Pink Posh. We have this great inspiration photo for you to play:



And this is the card I made inspired by it:


First, I stamped the mason jar and masked it. Then I inked the background, applied droplets of pearlescent ink and stenciled some stars with white pigment ink. After I had removed the mask, I colored the mason jar with Copics. I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment and adhered the panel to the card. Finally I adhered the sequins.

I hope you'll play! Can't wait to see your take on the photo!

Winnie & Walter Rerun No. 2

Hello there! This is one of two posts today. You'll find the Sparkle & Shine post here.
The Winnie & Walter team is showcasing one of the older stamp sets today. This time we are using The Big, the Bold and Fun. I wanted to use the word "shine" and combined it with the cute set My Precious:


I first die-cut an aqua colored panel using Essentials: Katharine Cutaways. Then I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment. Now I created a mask for the diamond image and applied white pigment ink and Zig Wink of Stella for the shine of the diamond. I removed the mask and adhered the panel to the card. Then I stamped and heat-embossed the diamond onto white cardstock. I colored the diamond with aqua Gelatos and water, cut it out and adhered it to the card with foam tape. Here you can see the shine better:

Be sure to hop to the Winnie & Walter blog to see the samples of the other members of the Talent!

Thanks for stopping by today!
