Happy Father’s Day

SCRAMBLE #41 by kimba7669

Hello all-

Today is June 11th and on Sunday is a day that we acknowledge and make feel special the men in our lives. Here is a card that I created that was fairly easy to make.

I tried to keep it masculine by using neutral colors and wanted to add texture for some interest. I used the CuttleBug folder Distressed Stripes on the navy cardstock. I used HeroArts Three Fun Cars LP214. I used brads on the wheels to add some fun!

Well, I hope that you like the card and that you start get busy making the special men in your lives their Father’s Day cards.

Thanks for stopping by!

EMBELLISH MAGAZINE & CAS-ual Fridays

EMBELLISH MAGAZINE & CAS-ual Fridays by kimba7669
Hello and Happy Monday-

It’s me and I have a week full of cards where you will see me using on of my MOST FAVORITE products – DISTRESS INKS.  This product is so versatile and the things that can be done with these inks are amazing.  So, without further ado….today’s card.

Here I created a card for the EMBELLISH MAGAZINE Color Challenge.  The colors are Purple, Deep Blue, Olive Green and a Beige.  These colors together are BRILLIANT looking and the Distress Inks do awesome when blending these colors.  Here I used a HeroArts Digital Printable – Old Letter Writing and I distressed it using Chipped Sapphire, Antique Linen, and Forest Moss.  I then stamped the HeroArts Hydrangea (K5376) flower and I colored the leaves using distress ink and the flowers I used a combination of Copic Markers and PrismaColor Colored Pencils.  The tag, I cut out using Sizzix Mini-Tags (38-1207) and I distressed that too – isn’t that tag so cute??? Love it!

This card may look lie it took a lot of work to do, but surprisingly enough, it didn’t. The time-consuming part was the cutting out that flower – my hands! My hands! Lol!

Okay peeps, that’s it for today.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

MOXIE FAB WORLD – Square Challenge

MOXIE FAB WORLD - Square Challenge  by kimba7669

Happy Tuesday,

Today’s card is one that I loved creating. I am submitting this card to the Moxie Fab World Square Card Sketch Challenge. The sketch is super simple and I tried to create a CAS card too!

I just love Blue and Orange together….as you all may or may not know, orange is MY favorite color….so when I saw this sketch, I knew exactly which colors to pull out.

I stamped the HeroArts Large Solid Flower using VersaMark ink and then heat embossed it using white opaque powder. I then took my Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and rubbed it completely over the entire piece of cardstock and then wiped away the area that resisted the ink….it just pops off the color. I didn’t have any pearls to match the blue, so I took my Copic Marker – B05 (Process Blue) and colored them. I got that little trick from Jennifer McGuire. Lastly, I stamped the word sentiment and VOILA!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
