Ching Chou Kuik - Embrace the Ocean

Hi everyone!  I would love to share a little bit of DT inspiration for the Ching Chou Kuik Facebook Group.  I am following our monthly challenge theme of 'Beauties of the Sea', and am using the gorgeous image Embrace the Ocean.   I used the no-line technique again on this card.  I hope you like her! 



Here is a close up:




For the card I used Bazzill cardstock, paper from my stash, lace, and Provo Craft embossing folder.  I would love to know what you think!


Are you a member of the  Ching Chou Kuik Facebook Group?  I hope so!  We have new challenges every month, and she had loads of gorgeous digis. We would love for you to join us!  Please check out the new challenge while you are there, and you'll see the gorgeous projects made by my awesome fellow DT!

Stamp Anniething - Vanessa Cheese

Hi everyone! You might have noticed that my posting has gotten less frequent over the past few months. Because of changes in my everyday schedule, I have stepped down from some DTs.  I still love my card making, and I love being back in school, but there are only so many hours in the day!  

Anyway...I've had some time this week to play around with some new stamps, and new products, so I did just that!  Here is a shaker card I made using the Vanessa Cheese stamp from Stamp Anniething.  Go check them out - their stamps are so cute!  I also wanted to play around with a shaker kit I recently bought from Queen and Co.  And it's a camera - they were meant to be together, lol! 

Here is a look at the finished product.  I used light ink to stamp the image, using the no-lines technique. One I don't do very often, but I love the results! 


Here is a closer look at this cutie:


The card is made with paper and shaker supplies from Queen and Company, lace, cheesecloth, and Wild Orchid flowers.  Kinda cute, I think.  What do you think?  Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a lovely day!

The Paper Shelter - Art Deco Charm

Good morning everyone!  We are starting a new challenge on the Paper Shelter Challenge Blog,  The theme this week is 'Stitching - Faux or Real'. You do not need to use a digi from The Paper Shelter to enter the challenge, but those using an image from The Paper Shelter will be eligible to win a $30 gift certificate.  Any winner not using a Paper Shelter digi will win 3 digis of their choice. 

For my DT project, I decided to make a card using the beautiful new digi Art Deco Charm.  I love how elegant and classy this digi is.  You can find this, along with tons of other amazing images over at PaperShelter.com


The colors I used are: skin - E000, E00, E11, E21, E93 & RV10; hair - E95, E97 & E99; dress - RV93, RV95 & RV99; feathers - B0000, B000 & B00. The image is printed on X-press paper.


Here is a closer look:


Anyone who knows me, will tell you that I am not a sewer, lol! I can sew a button, but that is about it,  And even then, it's nothing I am proud of! Yikes!  Maybe a new hobby one day?  I used Faux stitching on mine.  I love the Stitched Square die by Lawn Fawn.  Looks so much better than any stitching I could ever do. 

 For the card, I also used Bazzill cardstock, paper from my stash, Wild Orchid flowers, ribbon,  and lace. Would you like to play along with our 'Stitching Faux or Real' challenge?  It's really easy...just head on over to the Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to see all of the rules.
