3 From Stamp On It

My work schedule has settled down a bit the last few weeks so I was able to make extra DT cards for the QKR Stampede Challenge. Stop by the challenge, which is always “Anything Goes” and several prizes are awarded.

The front of the first one features a Eureka digi (ES-digi34502 Tree Losing Leaves) and a Eureka sentiment (ES-digi7706 Thinking of You.) After coloring the scene with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen, I added “leaves” with three beautiful colors of Nuvo Crystal drops. I love the sheen and texture that they add to the card! The inside sentiment is also from Eureka (ES-digi 19801 You Loving Ways) with the added bling of scattered Nuvo drops.

My second DT card for the QKR Stampede Challenge is a delicate Easter card. The front features a butterfly fussy-cut from a large Eureka digi (ES 58501- Butterfly background) and a fun-to-color Eureka sentiment (ES-digi3701 Happy Easter.) The background is created with a handful of paper strips and a tutorial I found HERE. I cut a frame into pretty notecard that has an embossed edge and taped the pastel background behind this frame. I colored the Happy Easter sentiment and beautiful butterfly with Spectrum Noir markers and added details with a white Sakura Gelly Roll gel pen. I didn’t want the patterned background to overwhelm the butterfly, so I added a layer of vellum atop the background. The inside sentiment is also a Eureka digi (ES-digi57502 Easter Blessings.) I added a few little butterflies colored and fussy-cut from the butterfly background digi. Am entering this card into several challenges including Butterfly Challenge (it includes one color- Pink Lavender.)

My final  card for this post is from the company Biblical Impressions, which is one of the companies sold on a website named Stamp On It (which also sell QKR and Eureka stamps and digis!)  This card features a wonderful wood-mount stamp named Large Hermit Crab which is a favorite of mine. I love coloring the cute critter with my Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. For this card, I used a bunch of scrap papers in assorted colors, circle dies and photos from old calendar pages (I NEVER throw calendars away… and several people now save them for me. So fun!) The sentiments are computer-generated.
