Pheasant Run stamp camp #2

This is the second card made on August 12th with my seniors group.  I often use my old wooden stamps with them, and this is an old set.  We did add some new to the card with the sequins and the hello honey card stock.  It is bright and cherry and could be used for many different occasions!

FMS 149 challenge

Hello,  I was working in my craft room last evening and had the focal part of this card done but not put on a base.  This morning after seeing the sketch layout it was like a light bulb going off!!  Oh yes, yes, yes that is exactly what it needed.  I guess that is what I love about challenges they give me ideas to jump start or finish a vision I might have.  I used 2 stamps from the Bordering Blooms set to create the edge of the focal image with a couple extra small flowers thrown in from the flower patch. The flower that is over and under the bday greeting matches the flower from the borders set perfectly just larger!!!  I love orange and yellow flowers so that is my color choice this time, and the DSP paper gave it the ommph it needed.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day I love comments don't you? on creative visions???  if you have a little time leave me one and thanks a bunch.

Late Night Stampers challenge 255

Not sure who came up with this name but I really like it!!!  Often that is me to the tee... life is so busy on a farm that I'm crafting either late at night or early in the morning.  I was playing last evening in my craft room and decided to try to stretch myself and use a stamp set in an unusual way.  I love that the new poly-stamps can be curved a little and that's what I did with this card.  I used the Flower Patch set and made this wreath. can you figure out which stamps I used???  :0)             After I had my focal done I decided to add some circles and  this is what I came up with.  Circles, circles, circles   right in line with this weeks challenge. Let me know what you think I love to hear from others on what their opinion is on my visions.  thanks and have a great day.

Dazzling Diva challenge 38

Our family doesn't really go to the beach but there is just something about a water scene that says RELAX!!  Wouldn't you just love to sit on the end of this pier and dangle your feet in the water I would.  To sit for a bit and just look out over the water hearing the waves ...makes feel a little relaxed just thinking about it.

  I used watercolor paper, markers, watercolor brush to create the background.  Stamped the image in Stazon black then colored over to give the detail coloring. Gave my metal some texture with an old stampin' up texturz plate that did the same thing as an embossing folder.  I added a little Viva Decor to tone down the bright blue of the metal a tad.  I went around the black focal image and the metal with some gold ink then placed all on a black piece.  What do you think of my Vision??  I love getting comments, thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Asian box

I'm part of a Stampin Up group that has been sending gifts to a secret stamper.  This will be my final gift for my rak pak friend.   I made the box and covered it with an Asian theme.  If you keep scrolling down you'll see that it has a fake bottom in it, just thought that would make it fun.  I made a much larger box along the same line as this in a previous post (May - Wedding box and album) for my sisters wedding pictures if you're interested in seeing it, I also have a you tube video showing it.

New Clear stamps

Stampin up has been trying the waters with clear stamps for about a year and now in the new catalog they are available to purchase.  This card is made from a set that is Not in the catalog but can be purchased.  I put the words of my choice on a clear block and then stamped repeatedly for the background.  The cake is the only image in this set of 15 the other stamps are all words.  Once again I used the lost lagoon color and added some alcohol colored rhinestones and then some candy dots to give it that little extra dazzle.  Thanks for stopping by and seeing my vision.

Stamp Camp #2

Okay everyone who can guess which new stamp set this is made from.  Thought it would be okay for all the men in this family.  I really like the new blue lagoon color and I used the starburst framelit die.

Stamp Camp #1

I made this card a few weeks ago for a stamp camp. This is #1  using the new stamp set and matching dies, Flower Power, just love using them.  Not sure you can see all the dazzle on it but we used a good bit of glitter glue.  Now I am NOT a glitter person but I think I could come to like the glitter glue!!  The new Embossing folders with 2 frames was put on a white layer then covered up with a post it note that I cut out. We then sponged the circles on the card and sponged the edge to bring it all together.  Stamped, cut and popped up the flowers, the blue one has 3 layers and we hand cut the top two so they were smaller.  what do you think?

Dazzling Diva challenge 37

I just HAD to do some card making tonight!!!  I have been working for the last 5 work days - VERY unusual for me!!  I'm a fill in girl and am filling in for some one on vacation (2 days to go).  Tonight I was relaxing and looking through my e-mails and checking out some of my favorite sites, I came across the Add a Little Dazzle one and decided to join the challenge.  I have had some of the metal sheets for a long time and from time to time will use them.  The word Peace and some of the little punched leaves are metal. I do not have any of the Lawn Fawn word stamps so I used part of an old one from Stampin' Up (hope that's okay).  A neighbor man passed away this week so I needed a sympathy card and I think this will fit the bill.  Thanks for stopping by. I love to read comments let me know what you think of this particular Vicki's Vision.

"Manly" card

I was asked to bring a "manly" card to my Pheasant Run group next week.  Do you think this fits the bill???  It is a pretty easy card and will go together quick so I decided to spruce up the inside a little bit.  Saw a video on you-tube with this sponged look on the inside and decided it would look nice with this card.  What do you think?  come again and you'll see more of my visions.

Clear block stamping

How about a watercolor scene.  The sunsets this summer have been so pretty!!!  We have an orchard/pasture behind and beside our house and there are a few big trees left out there.  My husbands grandfather planted it.  Anyway, that is often where I see such beautiful acts of God in the sky.  I'm so glad He gave us color and I can see it.  This card was an acrylic block stamped sunset, I colored with markers on a large block then spritzed with water generously.  Stamped it on WATERCOLOR paper (it will absorb the inked water). Stamped and colored the trees added borders and placed it all on a marina mist piece that had been decorated with some DSP and paper piercing.  Wonder who will get this card from Vickis' Visions, maybe you   :0)

Watercoloring Altenew designs

 I have been somewhat working on sorting and labeling my non Stampin Up stamps. I have a small container that holds my Altenew and Pinkfresh...
