Party Pandas

This Party Pandas stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog is so much fun!  I stamped the pandas onto a 1 3/4 circle and adhered inside of the negative area of the Starburst punch.  I used a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to trace inside of the starbursts and around the sentiment.

My card base is another Sale-A-Bration item called Frutti-Tutti Cards & Envelopes.  They have a pattern on the front and the inside is white.  There are coordinating envelopes (as the title says LOL) and they are super fun with patterns on both sides of the flaps of the envelope.  I couldn't help but decorate one of those envelopes as well.  I die cut the sentiment using Celebrate You Thinlits from a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock that has Brusho on it.  I sponged Pacific Point on the bottoms of the sentiment and traced around the edges to make it stand out more.

Happy Stampin', 
Raquel

Crazy 4 Challenges - Sketch

It's the third Saturday of the month and that means it's sketch time with Crazy 4 Challenges.  I stamped the flowers from the Helping Me Grow stamp set with Black StazOn.  I then colored in the flowers with a white crayon so the Brusho would resist coloring in the flowers when I sprayed rubbing alchohol on it.
Once the piece was dry, I used Banner Framelits to die cut the shape I needed to follow along with the sketch.  I also used the new Starburst Punch and I fussy cut the sentiment from Birthday Wishes for You.

Happy Stampin',

Karen Burniston Paper Pros Challenge - Love

It's time for the Paper Pros challenge!  The theme of love was set by Caz Counsil.  I added a Woodland Character to my Brusho embossing background.  I sprinkled Brusho into the Honeycomb Embossing Folder, spritzed with water then ran it through my Big Shot.
As you can see a sneak peak of the character again when opening the card courtesy of the Katherine Label Pop Up.
I stamped this sentiment from Stampin' Up!'s Delightful Dozen onto a label and tucked the little character behing the label.  I'm sure anybody would be his/her valentine!

Crazy 4 Challenges - Love or Appreciation

The Crazy 4 Challenges team are making projects relating to love or appreciation today.  I stamped the flower from You've Got This onto glossy cardstock using black StazOn.  I first applied Brusho to the glossy by shaking some on and then spritzing with water.  Then I used my aquapainter to color in the leaves and stem, as well as adding a bit more orange to the flower.  I stamped the sentiment onto a Stitched Fishtail Banner using a stamp set called You Move Me.
I used that same stamp set to stamp the inside as well.
Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Add a heart

The Crazy 4 Challenges team are adding hearts to our projects this week.  I needed birthday card for my co-worker and her favorite color is red......so the challenge became her birthday card with a heart.  I stamped the cat and sentiment using You've Got Style stamp set.
I used Karen Burniston's Twist Panel Pop Up for my card base.  It's fun to watch the card twist open and expand to full view.  
I stamped another cat and added a witty sentiment from Five for All stamp set.  I die cut the letters "You're Purr-fect" and used my white gel pen to trace around each letter to make them stand out more.  I added some flowers using Karen's Flowers and Bee die set.  For a signature area, I die cut two Katherine labels.  I really love the pop of red - my recipient's favorite color - and it's a classic heart color.
Happy Stampin', 
Raquel

We Must Celebrate

I am using several new items from the Occasions catalog on my card today - click here to view the catalog.  I am really having fun playing with Brusho.  I made this card for my animal-loving co-worker.  I sprayed Whisper White with spray starch, sprinkled on the Brusho and watched the magic happen.  Whilst wet, I placed a piece of plastic wrap over the top and set it aside to dry.

When my piece dried, I stamped these cute critters from We Must Celebrate stamp set using Versamark, covered with black embossing powder and then heat set.  I used Stampin' Writer Markers and a white gel pen to color them.  I punched a balloon using the Balloon Bouquet Punch and adhered using a dimensional.
I used the sentiments from the set to stamp on the inside.  I adhered Whisper White to both sides on the inside to give more room for my co-workers to sign the card.  Since the card is 4 1/4 x 6, I custom made an envelope using the Envelope Punch Board.

Happy Stampin',
