Orders have been placed with Hero Arts, LDRS Designs, Graphic 45, Picket Fence Studios, Impression Obsession, Concord & 9th, Lawn Fawn, Penny Black, PhotoPlay and Dare 2B Artzy; stay tuned for sneak peeks of all the goodness coming soon to Paper Anthology!
Last week, Paper Anthology held out first virtual crop: Creation Staycation. It was a week long event, with tons of challenges, trivia and Prizes. I’m excited to say, it was a huge success, with over 300 challenge entries! We had such a blast looking through everyone’s gorgeous creation! I thought I would share a few of my cards from the challenges:
This card was for the Monochrome Madness challenge. Of course, I chose GREEN. All dies used are from Dress My Crafts:
This card was for the Distress background challenge. Lots of inky goodness with Ranger Distress inks and a fun flower die set from Taylored Expressions:
This card was for the one layer (CAS) challenge. I used the Taylored Expressions square stencils for the background. The beautiful flower image is from Penny Black . All inks used, for blending and watercoloring are mini ink cubes from Taylored Expressions:
Thanks for stopping by!!!
This month’s Make and Take features a gorgeous Penny Black image and Studio 490 sentiment. A simple card made by applying Tombow markers direct to the stamp. A spritz of water and voila, a beautiful, soft, watercolor floral. You can’t tell in the photo, but the flowers shimmer and sparkle with a light touch of stickles;
Still 11 days left before this month’s Christmas Card Club and I already have the card designed! This month I channeled all my favorite things – wood, plaid, gingham and a rustic cabin feel. I used Stampers Anonymous “Festive Overlays” set (another favorite thing) for the main image and sentiment. (die cut with Taylored Expressions awesome stitched and scallop sets). The plaid is a Studio 490 background stamp and the woodgrain is a Sizzix 3D embossing folder. My all time favorite May Arts ribbon, some die cuts from Penny Blackj and Elizabeth Crafts, along with a sprinkling of star sequins from Buttons Galore finish it off (not to mention a bunch of distress ink)!
Thanks for stopping by, leave a comment and let me know what you think!
Playing along with the current Shopping our Stash challenge – celebrating May Flowers! I dug deep in my stash for this October Afternoon paper and paired it with a Penny Black image that I watercolored with Tombow markers, a Stampers Anonymous sentiment from my favorite set CMS155 – Simple Sayings (a must have!)and some stitching from the Stampers Anonymous set, CMS365 – Stitches.
