STCVSP5 & MOJO173 - Thank You

This card I made with inspiration from Stamp TV's Color Spotlight Challenge 5 and the MOJO Monday Sketch 173.  The card base is made from white Bazzill cardstock and mounted with purple cardstock.  The background for the focal point is made with green Bazzill cardstock and matted with white Bazzill cardstock.  The flowers are constructed from a mixture of my stash with rhinestone brads.  The ribbon is from my stash.  The sentiment is stamped with Versafine Black Ink on white Bazzill cardstock, matted with purple both of which have been diecut with two of the Labels Ten Nestabilities from Spellbinders.  

STVCSP6 & STVSKSP8 - Happy Birthday

This is a cute little card I made for a cute little girls who is turning 4 years old tomorrow!!  Happy Birthday, Mackenzie.  The inspiration for this card came from two challenges from Stamp TV, Color Spot Light Challenge 6 and Sketch Spot Light Challenge 8.  We were encouraged to use bubblegum pink, black onyx and white.  I used Bazzill white cardstock as the base, for the image and background, black bazzill which was embossed using a Sizzix embossing folder from Stampin' Up along and pink bazzill cardstock for matting and the sentiment which is from Stampin' Up.  I also used the Classic Scallop Paisley Nestibilities  from Spellbinders for framing the Little Girl With Heart from Hero Arts.  The Little Girl With Heart is coloured with my Copic Markers.  The flower is a miscellaneous flower from my stash with a large black glitter brad for the center.  I inked the white cardstock using a marker from Stampin' Up called Pretty In Pink.

Thank You - STVCSP4 & STVSKSP4

This is a card I made with inspiration from the Stamp TV Color Spot Light Challenge # 4 using the colours Innocent Pink, Chocolate Brown and Ivory.  I actually made a mistake and did not notice it until I had the card together.  I used Ivory Cardstock as my card base but completed my stamped images on White I guess I messed this challenge up!!  Oh, well.... I also used Stamp TV's Sketch Spot Light Challenge # 4 as the inspiration for the layout for the card.  I used Chocolate Brown Bazzill Cardstock for the mats and Light Pink Bazzill Cardstock which was run through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dot folder.  The Thank You sentiment is from a new Stampin' Up set called Wedding Sweet and the focal image is stamped from Stampin' Up's Echoes of Kindness.  The image was coloured with my Copic Markers.  I added pink pearls from the Dollar Store and the ribbon is from Walmart.

Sympathy - STVCSP2 / STVSKSP2

This is a Sympathy Card I made using the Stamp TV Color Spot Light 2 and Stamp TV Sketch Spot Light 2 Challenges as my inspiration.  The Color Spot Light challenge was to use the colours, Green Apple, Lipstick Red and White.  I used the white flower embossed cardstock base from Bazzill along with Red Swiss Dot cardstock and green Bazzill cardstock.  I also used DSP from Stampin' Up - Prints Certainly Celery.  The flowers and sentiment were stamped using stamps from the SU stampset - Close As A Memory and I used SU Real Red Pigment Ink.  The Sentiment was punched out and matted using the SU Scalloped Oval Punch.  I added some rhinstone bling from the Dollar Store.

Happy Birthday - Mojo172

This is a card I made which serves three purposes.  Firstly I made the card for dear friends of mine whose mother recently passed away.  Secondly and thirdly I am hoping to complete the colour and sketch challenges going on at Stamp TV with Gina K. this year.  So although I am a bit late starting, I hope to catch up soon!!  The color spotlight challenge is to use turquoise, red and white with the sketch layout being as shown.  I have used my copic markers to colour the roses along with white base cardstock, turquoise Bazzill cardstock and red, swiss dot cardstock from Bazzill.  The focal image is stamped on white cardstock using Versafine Black Ink which was heat embossed using clear embossing powder.  The image was then cut out using a Labels Ten Die from Spellbinders and matted using the largest Labels Ten Die.  The corner punch is from Stampin' Up and the sentiment is from SU - Close As A Memory.  I used scizzors to trim around the sentiment which is stamped with Versafine Black Ink and added red glitter brads from Memory Keepers called White Christmas.
