TSOT #547 metallics


Well I did get a card made but neglected to add to the Try Stampin blog page and mine before Tuesday morning!  Sorry

The front panel with the flower is embossed in silver and the cut flower was embossed in gold.  The background paper is a metallic looking piece that came with the design on it. There is one layer of gold metallic piece between the 2 black piece. I finished it off with 5 gold metric rhinestones 


Optional Theme: Metalics

TSOT #546. Lovely greens

 Welcome to try Stamping on Tuesdays challenge. This week we have a sketch and a theme just like usual. I did not follow the sketch I followed the theme Shades of green. I have a sister whose favorite color is green so I want to send her this card just because I love her. Sending cards is becoming a thing of the past for some but not me. I like sending out cards - just because I’m thinking of someone. I send a lot of birthday cards also and like to have some sympathy and get well soon cards made up ahead. I also make a lot of cards and leave the sentiment off so I can add it when I need a special card for someone. When was the last time you sent a just because card to a friend or family member? This sketch is a pretty easy one to use even though I didn’t use it so why don’t you give it a try. You don’t have to follow both sketch and the theme just pick one like I did or if you’re getting brave use both 😊.  

This is a box card, it has three different panels in it to add your images on so that it looks like it has depth. You can’t tell in the picture but it’s also a Shaker card. I added thin packaging on the outside adhering it down with tape,  and put sequins in each square side. You can see them at the base of the front section.  It was really easy to make, if your interested in directions just let me know in the comments section below. I will probably decorate a single piece of card stock to fit in the envelope with this to give it more stability for mailing.  

Have a blessed day and I’ll look forward to seeing your card!

(Here is the sketch that I didn’t use)

TSOT #545. Animal fun!

 When I saw the theme for this week I remembered that I had some otters that I had colored a few weeks ago and knew right away I wanted to use them.  I decided to use the photo collage pop up die from Karen Burniston on the inside to make the otters appear to move in the water,  this was a fun card to make. 😄

For the inside of the card I made a background water scene, then put color on the raised side of an embossing folder and added my background paper to emboss it. The otters were added to the Pop die and a couple stamped to be partially in the water. I added the grassy edge and a few cattails and my scene was complete. 

TSOT 591. Fun panel card

 Our technique this time is layering. I decided to not follow the sketch and just do some layering. I’m not sure this is what they really me...
