Hello, again! I’m back with the final card from this series.

20160628_WWEE

Day 5 of Winnie & Walters’ Share the Love Week featuring Essentials by Ellen presented this Mood Board Challenge:

In the middle of the bottom row, there are black and white stripes surrounded with a touch of lime green and on the bottom left, the black and white stripes have gold accents, so here’s what I came up with:

I built a black and white striped background with the sentiments (remember day 3?!), masking off the area I was going to stamp the bear. Then I stamped the bear, colored him and added a nose dipped in golden honey and gave his coat at nice shiny sheen:

Share the Love Week – Day 4 – Transparent Challenge – Hey Thanks Card with Vellum

Good morning! I’m back with a card for day 4 of Winnie and Walter’s Share the Love Week featuring Essentials by Ellen.

20160628_WWEE

This was a Transparent Challenge and I chose to use gold colored vellum:

I love how the vellum has that super metallic shine, but also lets the background show through. This is my first attempt at paper piecing – I thought a paisley bear would be super fun!

20160630_182652

The ‘HEY!’ sentiment was an outline, but I wanted it to better match the ‘thanks’, so after stamping and embossing it, I used an embossing pen to fill in the outline and re-embossed it. That makes it easy to stretch your stamps and get two looks from the same set.

  • Essentials by Ellen – All Inside stamp set

Share the Love Week – Day 3 – Background Building – ‘Hello’ Card

The next card I have for you today is from Day 3 of Winnie and Walter’s Share the Love Week featuring Essentials by Ellen – Background Building.

20160628_WWEE

20160630_100205

It’s amazing how just using three of these odd-shaped star stamps made that psychedelic background! I think it’s the color layering that helps give it dimension. That idea was taken from Virginia’s View Challenge – All About Color.

  • Winnie and Walter – Scenery: Bigger Bang Confetti stamp set
  • Essentials by Ellen – All Inside stamp set

Share the Love Week – Day 2 – Sentimental Challenge – ‘Hi’ Card

I’m glad you’ve stopped by to see my card for day 2 Sentimental Challenge of Winnie and Walter’s Share the Love Week featuring Essentials By Ellen.

I like how I was able to get the look of an old IBM selectric typewriter in the background stamping and I think the distressed edges complement the “vintage” look. — I HAVE to put vintage in quotes, because in high school I learned to type on a manual typewriter and then on a selectric, so I find it hard to believe they’re vintage already! : ) And, no, I do NOT know how the pyramids were built!!  : )

Virginia’s View Challenge – All About Color inspired the rainbow background.

20160615_100718

The repeating sentiment in the background and the highlighted embossed sentiment really put the focus on the sentiment. (and also fits Day 3: Background Building)

Share the Love Week – Day 1 – Floral Challenge – You Are My Happy Card

Here I am catching up on posting several cards now that I have borrowed a computer again.

20160630_212414

Last week, Winnie & Walter had Share the Love Week featuring Essentials by Ellen.

20160628_WWEE

Day 1 was a floral challenge. As I don’t have any floral stamps from either company, I made my own out of the heart stamps.

20160615_100718

Virginia’s View challenge is All About Colors -like the multiple shades of red, yellow and gold on this card.

Simon Says Stamp’s Monday Challenge was to use a Tic-Tac-Toe chart:

20160630_SSSmon

I chose to use gold, stencil and doodle. I doodled in the inner hearts of the flowers and a leaf with a gold gel pen.

20160630_212850

I love the shiny gold sheen of the Brilliance Inks, too!
