Party Time Tuesday #105, Make It Monday #125 and Totally Gorjuss #168

I am still on a quest to use supplies that have not been used much. The flower on this card uses a technique from Technique Junkies called Mono Markers. I stamped the image with Versamark on Pink Lemonade Pop and embossed the image with white embossing powder. I then colored with worn lipstick distress marker in small areas where I thought the shading would be the darkest. You then take a water pen and bring the color out to the edges. I just love the look and I got to use my distress markers.
The stamp I used is from Heartfelt Creations (HC 224-B). This set has a matching Spellbinders set called Blossom 2 Nestabilities to help cut out the flower. I added glue dot to every other petal so that the flower was not perfectly flat.
The embossed corners was done with a Cuttlebug set called Cuttlebug Emboss all-in-one Beautiful. I added some highlight to the embossing with a worn lipstick distress pad and distress tool.
The Pink Lemonade was layered onto Black Felt Grandee and then mounted on Razzleberry Pop.

I am going to enter this card in three challenges.  First is Party Time Tuesday .  The challenge here is anything goes.  The second is Make It Monday where the challenge is always anything goes. The third is Totally Gorjuss where the challenge was flowers.

Make it Monday #123

This is my card for my Paper Temptress post this week.  So I guess you can figure that all the cardstock came from Paper Temptress.  The base of this card is Dark Chocolate Mica Metallic. The aqua layer is Starburst Lichen Glimmer. The sentiment and the woman vacuuming were stamped on Cryogen White.

All dies used on this card are from a Spellbinder's set called A-2 Fancy Postage. The cool thing about this set is that it is specifically made for cards and all the layers fit together perfectly. Thought this would be cute for the Make it Monday challenge

The stamps used are from Viva Las Vegastamps. I colored the image with colored pencils. I hate plain white edges so the edges were highlighted with distress ink. By the way I do hate vacuuming and cleaning when there is crafting to be done.

totally Gorguss

The challenge at Totally Gorguss this week is a card with ribbon.  This is a card I made for a Yahoo swap.  The theme was to use red and white.  This card was done on glossy cardstock.  I embossed the white flowers on the glossy cardstock and then added distress ink.  I then embossed the larger red flower in red. I just love distress inks. 

Make it Monday #122

Here is my entry for Make it Monday this week.  My goal this year is to really get into those supplies that I just thought I just had to have and have not really used.  This is a card I am going to use for a Yahoo swap.  This was a stamp set I thought was just so cute and never really got around to using it.  The set is made by Craft Lounge.  I thought the saying was really cute also.  I like the set because it can be for Christmas, but is Ok for just a winter card also.  For the swap I was supposed to use a coloring method that I don't routinely use.  I put marker on a craft pad and then picked up the color with a water pen.  I got a new lightbox for Christmas and am playing with my picture taking also.
