Retro Rubber Snowflake Kisses

Howdy friends and fellow crafters... LeeAnn here with my first post with the Retro Rubber Inspiration Challenge team. Today we are starting challenge #rrcb198 and the theme is It's Winter, use winter related stamps and or paper. 

 For my project I had this embossing folder and stamp in my stash from a Love From Lizi kit a few years ago, so figured it was the best to start off with. 

I ran my cardstock in the embossing folder through my Gemini Jr. then used Delicata White Shimmer Ink to add color. 

I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and used White embossing powder and heat set. 

Finishing touch was a few snowflake sprinkes from Kat Scrappiness.

I alternated white and black layers and my project was complete. 

This challenge runs from January 17 until January 27, and look forward to seeing what you make.

 Howdy friends and fellow crafters. Welcome to the first Birthstone Challenge. 

Today I used Sizzix Framelits 665715 Circle Floral Frame Dies and enjoyed making this card. 

I first cut the set out of Gold mirror cardstock, then the leaves section out of Mint Green mirror cardstock, and the flowers out of Garnet (red) and Amethyst (purple) mirrored cardstock. January birthstone is Garnet and February is Amethyst so these I made sure to use in multiple places. I also used Garnet and Amethyst Rhinestones in my project as the accent centers. 

I hope you have enjoyed my project, and look forward to seeing your entries. You can read the guidelines HERE!!!

Warm Winter Wishes... A Challenge Entry

On with how I made my card....

I stamped and colored the adorable penguins from the Playful Penguins stamp set, then cut them out using the coordinating die. The sentiment Warm Winter Wishes came from the Winter Foliage Card Kit, and cut that out with a sentiment strip die.

Saturday Fun in my Craftroom with Brutus Monroe Stamps

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. Today was a fun and crafty day. Of course it is always a good day when I get crafty. 
Today I pulled out my Brutus Monroe Bag and had some fun creating the three cards in this post for their current design team call. I have other projects I could have  used, but wanted to use cards that were mine, not from one of the many classes I have completed with them. 

Using Christopher's Shoes Clear Stamp Set, along with dies from my stash. 
I used the copic colors BG11 and BG13 for the builk of the shoes, along with RV14 for the laces. C0 was used for shadowing on the rubber toe and soles. I did stamp using Mement o Tuxedo Black.
The Ornament was cuting used a die set from GinaK Designs. The filler is MicroBeads from a Brutus Monroe Staycation Class. The sentiment was stamped using VersaFine Clair in Nocturne and embossed using Clear embossing powder. 

This card was SO FUN. I stamped out Sleepy Dino in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored using Copic Markers... the Dino Body was colored using v12, V15 and V17. Scales using G2 and G3 Pillow using Y15 & Y17. 
To do the background I used a stencil from my stash and decofoil Transfer Gel DUO, applying through the stencil. Once dry I ran it through my Gemini Jr using Lime Deco Foil. I love applying foil in his manner and it always amazes me how it works. 
I used a blender brush that had some blue ink on it already and added that to the panel that little Dino is sleeping on. I then stamped the sentiment using VersaFina Clair in Nocturne, and stamped the stars using Delicate Gold. All panels were cut using GinaK Designs Master Layout 1. A white gell pen was used to highlight various parts of the dino. Also a black glaze pen for the nasal spots and nails.

My last card here today was this fun little piggy. She is being mailed off to my granddaughter who loves Peppa Pig and after spending 2 weeks with her and her brother this summer, I really do miss her pig time. 
The piggy I colored using Copics RV10, RV13, RV14, RV21 and for the eyes I used BG05. I did use a whilte Gel Pen to high light the snout and cheeks. 
Background paper is from an older paper pad in my stash. 

i hope you have enjoyed this post, longer than usual but again, I had a lot of fun crafting today. Products used are listed here, some may be affiliate links, where if used may provide a small fee to myself, at no charge to you.
