Color Throwdown Challenge #472 - The Nice List

Welcome and Happy Wednesday!

I am so happy to be the Guest Star Stamper for this week's  Color Throwdown. This week's challenge was to create a card using Black, Red and Grey.



I must admit this was a little bit of a challenge because I still wanted to make a Christmas card but the colours are not what I would normally choose to do that. (I had thought of making a Valentine card but thought that might be a bit early).

I hope you like the card I came up with.





I used the adorable girl from the Pure Innocence - Nice List stamp set from MFT Stamps, which I coloured with Copics in the featured colours.  I decided to try something different for me and coloured her hair black in order to not introduce any more colours to my card (other then her skin).

Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - Pure Innocence - Nice List
Dies: MFT Stamps - Blueprints 13Blueprints 27 and Fishtail Flag Stax,  Simon Says Stamp - Stitched Rectangles
Inks: Simon Says Stamp - Intense Black,  Versafine - Onyx Black
Copic Markers:  Skin - E11, E33, V15, R21  Dress - R24, R27, R39  Shoes & Hair - C5, C7, C9    List - C00, C1
Other: Recollections - 110lb White and Black card stock,  MFT Stamps - 100lb Wild Cherry card stock,  American Crafts - Deck The Halls 6x6 paper pad, Foam Tape


I hope you give this challenge a try.  I can't wait to see with you come up with.

Thank you so much for dropping by and have a wonderful day! Kathy

Friends Make Holidays Even Happier

Hello my friends and welcome back. After what seems like having rain forever, we finally have a nice clear, if cold, day, so we put up a few Christmas lights outside.  I put up the Christmas tree and inside decorations on Monday.

I'm sure if you're a fan of MFT Stamps you know that they had a great Black Friday sale, which of course, I could not pass up.  One of the things I bought was the Fireplace die-namics that was released a long, long time ago but I finally decided to get and I'm so happy I did.

I used the fireplace die along with the new Pure Innocence girl from the Filled With Joy stamp set to create a cute little scene.  For the fireplace I used several different layers of foam tape to add lots of dimension to the card and I'm so happy with how it turned out.

For the fireplace I cut the main image from 100lb white card stock. I also cut a rectangle of white card stock that would cover the back of the fireplace opening.  That rectangle I inked up using the Small Brick Wall stencil and Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I then attached it to the back of the fireplace with some foam tape so that it was not flush with the front of the fireplace.  I also used some Wild Honey, Carved Pumpkin, Fired Brick and Ground Expresso Distress Inks to colour up some white card stock, and used the card stock to cut out the log and flames for inside the fireplace.

The little girl was coloured with Copic markers and then I fussy cut her out with a small white border and I attached her to the card front using a couple of layers of foam tape in spots, so that she would lie flat in front of the fireplace.

I hope you like my final card and let me know if you have any questions.




Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - Pure Innocence - Filled With Joy

To The Core - MFTWSC360 & CTD#470

Welcome my friends, although I currently have a cold and don't feel very ambitious, hence no Christmas decorating yet, I did want to complete this card.

I combined the Sketch Challenge from MFT Card Challenges with the Color Challenge from Color Throwdown.  I quite like how the finished card turned out.

 


I really loved the colour combination and thought the cute Pure Innocence - Love You To The Core stamp set from MFT Stamps would be a perfect match. I popped her off the background using foam tape.

I created the apple tree using a portion of the Leafy Backdrop Landscape die from Lawn Fawn.  Although when an apple tree has apples the leaves should be green I used creative license so it would go with the colour scheme.

Here are a couple of pictures of my card.




Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - Pure Innocence-Love You To The Core
Dies: MFT Stamps - Blueprints 13 & 20, Stitched Basic Edges and Slanted Sentiment Strips, Lawn Fawn - Leafy Backdrop Landscape

Santa's Sleigh

Hello my friends and welcome back.  Today I have a card to share that I created using a bunch of products from Lawn Fawn, including the Toboggan Together stamp set and matching dies.

This was the first time I used the Forest Border die and well as the Little Town Border.  I first cut them both out of white card stock and then for the trees, I used some distress oxide inks to colour them.  For the cute little house, I used the border die to cut out several different colours of card stock and then cut off the individual houses and glued them to the front of the white border. I used yellow card stock behind the houses to create "lights" for the houses.

For the sky I cut out a piece of blue card stock and then used unicorn ink from Hero Arts and the Snowfall stencil from MFT Stamps to create snow in the sky.  I wasn't totally happy with how that turned out so I then also sprayed the sky with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels. (It doesn't really show in the picture but it real life it has a lovely shimmer.)

Here is a picture of my finished card.




Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: Lawn Fawn - Toboggan Together
Dies: Lawn Fawn - Toboggan Together, Stitched Hillside Borders, Forest Border and Little Town Border,  Hero Arts - Nesting Rectangle Infinity Dies

Happy Holidays

Welcome to the first full week of November.  Today I have a card to share with you that I created with a couple of different stamp set from Hero Arts.

I can't believe that I only just bought the Colour Layering Christmas Trees stamp set and this card is the first time I ever used it.  I loved that you can create trees in the woods or an actual decorated Christmas tree.

I stamped the three with three different shades of green and then for the final layer I used white pigment ink.  I was trying to add the look of snow.  I think it would work better if I stamped the final layer with veramark and then used whit embossing powder instead.  I'm still pretty happy with how it turned out.




Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: Hero Arts - Color Layering Christmas Tree and the October 2017 My Monthly Hero kit
Dies: Hero Arts - October 2017 My Monthly Hero Coordinating Frame Cuts,  MFT Stamps - Blueprints 13

Dashing Deer

Hello again, I am back today with two more cards that I created using the Dashing Deer stamp set and the Drifts and Hills stencil from MFT Stamps.

I created two slightly different cards by changing the colour of the distress inks to create the fills and sky and the colours of Copic markers for the deers.  I used the trunks only from the Trees In The Forest die-namics, to create some bare trees in the woods.





Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Nice List - MFTWSC357

Can you believe it's November already?  It's crazy sometimes how the year can go so fast and how the weather can also change so fast.  On Halloween night it was so lovely and actually quite mild and by Thursday night, we had our first snow.  Crazy!

Now that I have grumbled about the weather, I can share with you a new card.  This card was created for the current sketch challenge at MFT Card Challenges.


I used the brand new Pure Innocence - Nice List stamp set from MFT Stamps as the main image for this card.  I think I may have gone a little overboard with the details but I still love how the little girl turned out.

Elf

Hello friends and welcome back.  Today I have another card to share with you, that I created using the Nice Elves stamp set from Hero Arts.

When I saw these particular elves, I thought it would be so cute to colour them like the characters from the Elf movie.  They all also inspired me to combine them with the sentiment, which I believes comes from that movie, from the Alpine Carolers stamp set from Mama Elephant.  Even though the elves aren't actually singing, I still thought the card turned out quite cute.




Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: Hero Arts - Nice Elves,  Mama Elephant - Alpine Carolers

I wanted to create a scene showing the elves working  away in Santa's workshop.  I created the background "hardwood floor and wallpaper" with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from the October 2017 My Monthly Hero kit, also from Hero Arts.

Hello my friends and welcome.  Today I have another Christmas card to share with you using the October 2017 My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts as well as the Naughty Elves stamp set and matching frame cuts, also from Hero Arts.

This is a card showing that sometimes the elves are just a little bit naughty at the North Pole, when they really should be making more presents.  ha, ha, ha

Merry Christmas

Welcome to a new week and a new card using the October 2017 My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts.  The stamp set this month was chock full of images to create different types of Christmas cards.


Below is the first card I created using this kit.  I cut a total of three rectangles from some 110lb white card stock.  One I used to create the frame around my scene, one I used as the base to attach my scene dies and one I cut using two of the fancy dies in the kit to create some tress and some mountains.  I then used distress inks to colour the tops of the trees, the bottoms of the mountains and the sky.

I have Santa flying in the sky on the way to deliver presents and Mrs. Claus waving him off.

Sunflower Thanks

Although it's totally miserable and rainy out here today, I thought I would try to bring you some sunshine in the form of another card that I created using the September 2017 My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts.

This is the first card that I created using the layering sunflower stamps and dies from the kit.  For the background I used the Vertical Arrows background stamp and Cup O'Joe ink, also from Hero Arts, to stamp onto some kraft card stock.

I stacked three brown "Thanks" and then slightly offset a yellow "Thanks" underneath so that the word would pop better off the background. It doesn't show that much in the photos but in real life it works.



Below is a list of the supplies I used for my card.

Stamps: Hero Arts - September 2017 My Monthly Hero kit and Vertical Arrows Background

You Are Gourdgeous

Good morning friends, today I have another card to share with you that I created for challenge #79 Rustic Neutrals at The Card Concept and this time I also used sketch #308 from Freshly Made Sketches as inspiration for my card layout.



I again used the pumpkins from the September 2017 My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts.  I also added the silver accent by combining the Radiating Rays stencil from MFT Stamps with Metallic Silver Embossing Paste from Dreamweaver Stencils.

The card I created has lots of texture and layers which was created using a combination of embossing  paste, a embossing folder and foam tape.

Autumn Greetings

Welcome to my small piece of the internet.  Today I have a card to share with you that I created for The Card Concept #79 - (Rustic Neutrals)


The inspiration photo is quite gorgeous.  I really love the look of white pumpkins but I wasn't quite sure what inks I had that I could use to create them.  I tired a few different colours but I think the Simon Says Stamp - Barely Biege that I had just recently bought worked the best.

According to the Card Concept's guidelines, the style of my card is Clean and Layered.

I was quite literal in my interpretation of the above photo except I did not add a circular element above the pumpkins but I did add a touch of silver using a sentiment and some silver embossing powder.

I hope you like what I came up with.




Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians.  I hope you are having a chance to get together with friends and family this long weekend.

I have a card to share with you today that I created for the current challenge at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.  This week the inspiration is "Iced Coffee".
