CASology Week 83 - Jump!

Posted by Barbara Philips at 4:13 PM 5 comments
Happy Saturday!  We have a little taste of spring here today.  The sun is shining and the snow is melting, but there is still a lot left!

I am playing along with CASology Week 83 at the last minute.  The theme is the word "jump".  I don't have many stamps that portray this, so I had to dig deep into my collection and came up with this...


It's not my usual style, but I like how it turned out.  Thanks for looking!

Make It Monday #152 - Take 2

Posted by Barbara Philips at 1:17 PM 7 comments
This is my second post today with my second card for the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #152 Challenge.  For this card, I stamped on cream cardstock with Galaxy Gold pigment Ink.  I then stamped butterfly images with Royal Velvet and Stampin' Up's Wisteria Wonder dye inks.  It is hard to see in the photo, but the gold ink shows through the dye inks very well and has a little shimmery effect.


Thanks for looking!  Enjoy your day!


Make It Monday #152

Posted by Barbara Philips at 1:10 PM 2 comments
Yes, it's true.  We have another snow day.  We haven't been to work or school in almost a week now!!!!  Anyway, since I have not been working, I have had time to play in "my spot".  Today I am trying the technique from Papertrey's Make It Monday.

Heather showed us how to stamp layers using pigment and dye inks.  For my first card, I stamped an image from Turning a New Leaf with white pigment ink onto white cardstock.  I then stamped rose images from The Sweet Life with Scarlet Jewel and Pure Poppy dye inks.


Thanks for stopping by.

CASE Study Challenge #178

Posted by Barbara Philips at 4:08 PM 4 comments


Today I am playing in "my spot" instead of cleaning or homework.  We have a snow day so I am home from work...yeah!!!!

Here is the inspiration for the CASE Study Challenge #178...


 and here is my card...



I experimented with the rainbow image from Papertrey Ink's Up, Up and Away stamp set.  I stamped it multiple times, slightly overlaying the previous with different colored inks.  The sentiment is also from the same stamp set, but I cured it on my block before stamping.  The hounds-tooth on the side is washi tape!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Fusion - Take 2

Posted by Barbara Philips at 3:56 PM 4 comments

Love this week's Fusion Challenge so I made several cards.  Again, the challenge....



My second card...





I actually had thrown away the butterfly embossed paper and pulled it back out of the trash and turned it over to experiment on the back side.  I used a blending brushed and brushed over the embossed image with Stampin' Up Pool Party Ink.  I like how it turned out.  The patterned paper is from Simon Says Stamp February card kit.  I die cut and stamped some images from WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals (love this set!!!).

Thanks for taking a look!
