Muse Challenge, Memory Box and Paper Smooches…

Pam Sparks April Showers Umbrella

Hi everybody!  yep, it’s raining here and it’s our youngest daughter’s birthday which got me to thinking about cards and the Muse Challenge that I’ve been wanting to jump in on this week!

muse_featured_member

I love Michele’s card and was inspired by her element popped up in the corner of the rectangle.  I left my rectangle kinda big cuz I didn’t want to cut off that much of the die but I kinda wish I would’ve now.  Oops, I added a layer and forgot the sentiment was on a banner. I should’ve sent myself the picture and had it up on my phone I guess.  Can’t trust my brain! lol

I used some dies I haven’t used very much so that was fun.

The Umbrella is from Magnolia Sweden (I don’t see it in stock in any of the US online stores, you can probably order it directly from Magnolia Sweden though)… the scallop stitched rectangle is from My Favorite Things… the rain background and stitched rectangle are Memory Box and the boots are from Paper Smooches. I stamped the boots with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink on the mini MISTI.  I stamped and cut out a mask and inked the inside of the boots with Evergreen Bough and Hickory Smoke Distress Inks.

 

The next card I made for stamp club here.  The theme was April Showers Bring May Flowers, so puddles with splashes just seemed like fun!  All the stamps and the die are from Paper Smooches. The stitched rectangle die is Memory Box.  The polka dot paper is My Favorite Things, the Lollipop and Cookie Monster layer and card-base are Taylored Expressions.

and a close up … splish splash…

Pam Sparks PS Welcome Spring Close

It’s interesting to see the difference in the background colors of the photos.  The welcome Spring card pictures were from Friday a.m. when the sun was shining… the umbrella card was late afternoon today with no sun but plenty of light.

Both cards are A-2 size.

Thanks for looking at my Spring cards! I appreciate it!  Have a good week!

A little more Christmas…

 

Pam Sparks PTI Christmas Wishes

 

I really enjoyed playing with this Spruce and Sprigs set from Papertrey ink after seeing what their design team did with it. I wish I’d had more time to make more!  : )

So festive.  I used Stampin Up’s Real Red ink,  Peeled Paint and Pine Needles Distress Inks.  Then I brushed in a little Copic Sketch marker.

So I moved on to making Gift tags…they always make me happy.  I’m trying to use up wrapping paper so I can buy new again, so I ended up with a variety of tags trying to match the wrapping paper.

Tilda’s Town Magnolia card and some tags…

PamSparksRockingHorseCAL4TT700
Sweet Christmas childhood memories… I’m sure we all had a rocking horse of some kind or other!   This cutie is one of the dies from the Magnolia DooHickeys Club Kit #2, All I Want For Christmas.   It is chock full of cuteness!  Here’s the tag I made with the Santa and border that are also part of  the kit.  Lots of dies for a great price and a little magazine full of ideas too!  OH, almost forgot!  The little lace piece is another die in the kit… see… tons more too!

I die cut the Rocking Horse die from white card-stock and colored it with Copics. The words happy and christmas are from Paper Smooches.

Last Friday at our area stamp club meeting we swapped Christmas tags.  I made two and let the gal that got my name choose which one she wanted.

I made a bookmark style tag with Paper Smooches dies and the PTI Tinsel and Tags set and then a Snowglobe style tag with PTI Tinsel and Tags set, the Winter die and snowglobe die.

Memory Box 2014 Holiday Stamps Blog Blitz starts today and a Paper Smooches/poppystamps Rainbow…

PamSparksBrambleSurprise700-001

Today I’m starting the week off with the NEW Memory Box Bramble Surprise rubber stamp. As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted it!!  I love the whimsical feel of it!  I decided on some Copic colorbook therapy with some Distress ink blending for the background.

I matted the image and the Distress Dot paper with the Mini Perfect Layers Tools and cutting mat… love them!  Links on the right and below…

 

PamSparksBrambleSurprise700Close

After I colored the image, I went around the perimeter of the card with Weathered Wood Distress ink first, then I added in Chipped Sapphire,  then Dusty Concord and on the very edge a bit of Black Soot. Walnut Stain on the bottom.

Then I sprayed water into the palm of my hand and dropped it onto the inked part, staying away from the moon.

I shook up a bottle of White Linen Dylusions Ink Spray real good, opened it and spattered the white dots on by tapping the cap and letting the ink flick off the end of the tube.

I die cut the letters for the word ‘fall’ from the Alphabet Soup die. I put scor tape on the back of Memory Box White card-stock before I cut.  The letters are really easy to adhere to the card when the tape is already on there. The drawback is, the thicknesss causes the holes in the die, (for poking out the waste) to emboss.

I layered Memory Box Violet Distress Dots Card-stock to a top fold A-2 Memory Box Kraft card base that I embossed with the Memory Box Dots Stencil.

I’m behind getting my cards posted on my blog but I will catch up soon!  I wanted to share this CAS Summer card that I made for our area stamp club monthly swap.  July’s theme was a Summer scene.

 

PamSparksRainbowPS700

 

The sentiment is from Magnolia, rainbow is Paper Smooches, cloud border is poppystamps and the sun is an old EK Success medium size punch.

I used this super cute Skateboard Tilda… she’s been playing hard… she must’ve skinned her knee and forgot to pull her jeans back down! lol  Behind her is the Vintage Swedish Background stamp.

I colored with Distress Markers…her hair got a little dark, oops, I used Vintage Photo first but didn’t like it so I went back and used Gathered Twigs over it.  Next time I’m just going to use Gathered Twigs and see what that looks like.

Her face is a light wash of Vintage Photo and then Tattered Rose,  like I did in a video…under the header photo you’ll find the video tab…pull down.

Shirt  and tennis shoes are Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick.  Faded Jeans on the jeans.  Tree trunks are Gathered Twigs.  Grass is Mowed Lawn.  Sidewalk is Pumice Stone.  Skateboard is Shaded Lilac. Sky is Tumbled Glass.

Stamped with Ranger Archival Black ink on Canson Motval 90# watercolor paper.

I cut the scene with some new (to me) Square Spellbinder dies and then floral corners are from Magnolia.  Flower Swirl Corner DooHickeys die.

The finished card is 5 ½ in. square.

Have you tried it?  Here’s a video of how I color with Distress Markers on Canson Cold Press watercolor paper.  It’s very basic but if you are curious how to begin, it might be an encouragement to you.

I did make this in HD, so you can click the gear and watch it that way if you want.

Here’s a close up but remember… I was coloring standing up so it’s kinda messier than usual! : )  I think coloring on Cold Press paper has a different look than Hot Press paper for sure and definitely different than Copic coloring.  I have to keep telling my self that it’s ok! lol

I used the new In the Snow Heart Tilda and In the Snow Scarf Tilda.  I just love how they look like they are having a snowball fight!  It’s been too cold here to even think of being outside…now it’s the other extreme! lol  Although if a person hurried, they could build a snowman quick before it melted.

PamSparksInTheSnowTildasClose700

I colored these cuties with Distress Ink markers on Canson Cold Press watercolor paper.  I loved Jay Jay’s card using these two…love her watercoloring with pencils! I had to have them then!  Stamps are great Christmas presents! lol

Here’s the Distress marker colors I used…

Face – tattered rose/worn lipstick on the cheeks
snowballs/sky – tumbled glass
red is all Fired Brick
Green is Peeled Paint
In the Snow Scarf Tilda – Brown is Vintage Photo (hat and pants)  Shoes – Walnut Stain, Hair – Mustard and Vintage Photo
In the Snow Heart Tilda – pants – Faded Jeans,  Shoes – Vintage Photo,  Hair – Antique Linen and Walnut Stain
Ground – Pumice Stone

The tree is a Marianne Designs die… the snowflakes are a pack of embellishments I grabbed while out shopping one day…kinda crazy purchase when you have so many punches and dies already! ugh.  They came in handy today when I needed something quick!

I used the Perfect Layers Tools to mat the image and the red layer.  They are so awesome!  Link on the right in the sidebar.

Magnolia, Tilda’s Town Challenges…

_MG_9257-001

The challenge at Tilda’s Town this week is Christmas!  I got it into my head to go for CAS… well… it’s pretty IRL but oh my… so hard to capture shiny, shimmery, gold and glitter on camera!

c

I colored with Copics… G20’s, R30’s, YR21’s and a metallic silver gel pen.

Put the double sided tape sheet over it and used the Art Glittering system’s diamond dust glitter all over it.

I used the Jingle Jangle Tangle stamp and A Merry Christmas Text stamp from Magnolia, available at Tilda’s Town.com .  I heat embossed the sentiment with gold ultra fine embossing powder.

Cut the layers with my Perfect Layers Rulers… LOVE them… link over in the right sidebar and tutorial under the header…pull down under tutorials.
