Paper craft project no. 507: Life is an adventure



Hello! Here's a card for the new challenge at Time Out. For the next two weeks, the challenge is Home Sweet Home, where we have this inspiration photo:

21 Ways to Make the Industrial Look Work for You including brick veneer, pallet coffee tables and map walls:

I took my inspiration from the colors, that rustic table that looks like a suitcase, and the big map in the background to create my one-layer card. I stamped the stack of suitcases and sentiment (Born to Roam), then masked the suitcases before stamping the various grunge background (Mixed Media Elements, Mixed Media Grunge). I gave the suitcases a bit of color with PrismaColor pencils and the card is done.

Check out the cards that the TO team + guest designer Trinia made and then come play with us! STAMPlorations is sponsoring the challenge. The winner (voted by the design team) will receive a $15 gift certificate.

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to smile :o)

Paper craft project no. 506: Do what you love


Popping by with a card I made for the new challenge over at AAA CardsSTAMPlorations is sponsoring, and for the next two weeks the theme is rainbow. What a fun theme!


To create my one layer card, I started with one of the dies in the Curly Labels/Tags set to create a curly-curvy bottom edge. Then I took one of the brush stroke stamps in Mixed Media Elements and stamped it in rainbow colors down the left side. Then I stamped the sentiment (Do What You Love) in dark blue ink + stamped the ink splatter stamp from Art Marks a couple of times in orange and green and the card's done.

I hope you'll join the AAA Cards design team and link up your  clean and simple cards based on the theme. The winner will receive two stamp sets from the Say It Big series (Do What You Love and Choose Happy) and two randomly drawn winners will each receive a $5 gift certificate to the STAMPlorations store.

Paper craft project no. 505: Bird soaring high



Seems like it's been forever since I posted. Sorry about that -- between my mommy duties and running STAMPlorations + being preggers and having terrible non-stop morning sickness up until late last week, I haven't been able to create anything to share here (although I've got some crafty/artsy exciting news soon). At 16 weeks, the morning sickness has subsided significantly, although once in a while I still feel like hurling.

Anywho...last week a new challenge started at Time Out. This time around we're to CASE a card and put our own twist to our creation. We are CASE-ing this fun card by Cornelia of Stempel Spass.



I took my cue from the main image and background. First, I sponged gray ink through the Zen Hearts stencil before stamping the bird (angled it a bit so it looks like it's about to take off) and sentiment (For the Birds) and then grounding the bird with a grungy dot stamp (Mixed Media Grunge).

Check out the cards the team + guest designer Pooja made and then link up your own project inspired by Cornelia's card. There is still a week left to play. Sponsoring this challenge is Happy Little StampersWe can't wait to see your creations!
