One for the Guys

 It's time for a new challenge at the Stamping Sensation. This month our theme is: One for the Guys.
I was asked to make red and white pocket card for a male. I also added black and silver to these colors to make the card more manly.  Card design is similar to the graduation card I shared last month.


I used the car from the Sparkle N Sprinkle Road Less Traveled - Stamp Set 629 as main image. It is colored with Promarkers. Some details are inked with VersaMarker pen and heat embossed with Silver Detail EP. I added Glossy Accents to the card lights.


I die cut several numbers and layered them all together. Top layer was heat embossed with Silver Detail EP. Silver brads was covered with  Black Enamel Accents


Crackle Background was stamped with VersaMark ink to the red and it was heat embossed with Clear Detail EP. Matting layers was heat embossed with Silver Detail EP.

Here you can see the inside of the card. It follows the similar design as a card front. Checkered pattern paper is made by me. 



I also made a simple envelope for the card.


Our this month sponsor is Foil Play who are offering one very lucky winner a £35 voucher to spend in their store.

I'm not a big fan of the coffee, actually only thing I like about it, is it's smell. But I did enjoy playing with all the new coffee stamps which SNS revealed this month. On my Today's card I used Expresso Yourself Stamp Set #699.


Coffee cups are stamped and paper pierced with three different pattern papers. I also added some shading with Promarkers. Lids are inked with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Clear Detail EP. I also added a green flourish die cut behind the cups.


Sentiment is stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Brown Fizz EP. Sentiment layer is inked with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink and I draw a frame with VersaMarker pen and heat embossed with Brown Fizz EP.
 

Background layer is stamped with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink. I used same sentiment all over the layer. It fits perfectly, like a puzzle piece, side by side. You can't even tell that the sentiment is originally in two rows. After stamping I covered words with Clear Detail EP and heat embossed. Edges are inked with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Brown Fizz EP.

Notes holder

Then I lost my Mojo for card making, I try something different. Here is a little notes holder. It hold 8 x 8 cm papers and also a pen.  


Top of the box is decorated with white border,  1/8" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape and Orchid Rose glitter.

 
I used new Iris Garden stamp set as a focal point. These stamps are wonderful for any projects. Matting layer is die cut from cardstock which was covered with  2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape". After adhering the image, rest of the sticky tape was covered with  Orchid Rose glitter. 
 

Strip of Mon Ami Gabby Diamond Mesh is adhered on top of the 1/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape. To avoid any dust sticking to the tape I covered rest of it with Orchid Rose glitter.  


Back side of the holder is very simple. I just used decorative border punch,  1/8" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape and Orchid Rose glitter to hide the joint of the pattern papers.


I also made some notes papers. I stamped single iris flowers to them.

 

Material used:
Stamp credits: Iris Garden #687
Glitters: Orchid Rose (GM2016) 
Inks:  Memento (Tuxedo Black )
Dies:  Spellbinders (Label Four Small);
Coloring Medium: Promarkers;

Treat Box

Happy Valentine's Day! I didn't plan it but the project I share with you should work beautifully with this day.

http://sparklensprinkle.com/o/product_info.php?products_id=7721

I made a little treat box with Sparkle N Sprinkle new stamp set Berry Sundae #688. This stamp looks so delicious and it comes with wonderful sentiments.


While I usually use narrow Tear-ific Tape in the edges of the matting layers, this time I used strip of 3/4" Double-Sided "Tear-ific" Tape on entire matting layer (on side of the box).  Tape is covered with Princess Elsa Frost glitter from Frozen glitter set.

http://sparklensprinkle.com/o/product_info.php?products_id=7539

Pattern papers and image are edged with Sakura Glue Pen and Dogwood Rose glitter.
After coloring the image with Promarkers I applied VersaMarker Pen to the glass and heat embossed it with Clear Detail EP. Sadly the shine isn't captured on photo.


Image and sentiment are stamped with Tuxedo Black ink. I added Princess Elsa Frost and Dogwood Rose glitters around the sentiments with Sakura Glue Pen.


The edges of the light blue scalloped layer are covered with Brushable Glue and Princess Elsa Frost glitter. I added a piece of cheesecloth under it for texture.


This is it for Today. You have still time to enter the SNS Creative Challenge. Just use loose glitter, embossing powder and/or Flocking on your project.

Graduation card

It's time for a new challenge at the Stamping Sensation. This month we have a very easy theme: Anything goes. All you have to do is use stamping on your project and participate with us. 

"Only as high as I can reach can I grow
Only as far as I see can I go
Only as deep as I look can I see
Only as much s I dream can I be"

For the background I stamped Crackle Background with VersaMark ink to the blue CS and heat embossed with Clear Detail EP. All the matting layers are heat embossed with Gold Detail EP.


The paper with white grids on it is inked with Broken China, Faded Jeans and Peeled Paint Distress Inks. For the mask I used drywall tape. I made some holes to it to add a bit interest. 
 
"Go confidently in directions of your dreams"
 As you can see it is a pocket card. It was made for a young man for high-school graduation.

It has been very long since I made a recess window card. They are easy to make and look awesome.
I used an old calendar for the background image. It's wonderful for the 'thinking of you' card. 
 

I used Seasonal Trees stamp set. Tree trunk is stamped with Tuxedo Black ink and leaves with Pistachio and Pear Tart. I love that this set includes solid and outline images. It's fun to play with them :)


Tiny flowers are punched with Flower Box border punch. Somehow I used negative pieces (flowers) more often then punched border it self. I added dots of Dimensional Glue to the center of each flower and covered the glue with Evening Glow Glitter.


Sentiment is stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with White Detail EP.
I also added some sparkle around the recess window with Sakura Glue Pen and Evening Glow Glitter.
