A Super 5th Birthday

Today I have a special card to share.  It's my son's birthday card made with Calling All Heroes.  He turns 5 today and is all about super heroes, so this was perfect for his card this year.

I've got to tell ya....this set is soooooo much fun to play with!!  It took me a long time (about 2 hours) to make this because I kept changing my mind!  I have to say, the dots are VERY hard to get lined up but the effort was worth it!  I got the idea for this card from the awesome Jan Tink, you can see her card HERE.  I changed up my design but used her card as a guide.

I can't wait to see what Ben thinks of his card tonight!  I'll keep you posted :)  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Happy stamping!

Dear Heart for TSSC325

I'm back with more today!  This time I am sharing a card made with Dear Heart and Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack for the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.  First, let's look at the sketch.

I think Dear Heart is just the cutest set ever and I wanted to make it work for this sketch.  I moved my focal point over a little, but I love the way this card turned out!

I love the little scuba boy and this design of Moonlight paper is just perfect as the waves!  I used the stars decorative mask to make the first design element, I just did tone on tone with Soft Sky.  I added the designer series paper next, it's cut 3 1/4" x 4 1/2".

For the boy, I stamped him on Whisper White using Memento Ink.  I colored him with blendabilites.  I used Pumpkin Pie, Coastal Cabana, and Skin tones.  I also used the Color Lifter, especially on the goggles to tone down the blue.  I used the Circle Framelits to die cut the boy and add him to the card with dimensionals.
Next, is the sentiment.  I stamped "love you" from Sweetie Pie and "Sweet Boy" from Dear Heart on Pumpkin Pie cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black.  I die cut them with the Bitty Banner Framelits and tucked them in under the circle with glue dots.

I initially stopped there, but then decided the little fish would be super cut swimming in the background.  SO..I stamped three with Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities.  I hand cut them out and added them to the background.


Now it's your turn to be creative!  Grab your stamps and paper and join the challenge with me!  Just go to Technostamper for all the details plus more great cards from the Design Team.

Watercolor for CCC06

Happy Monday!  I have a card to share today for the color challenge this week at the Creative Challenge Club Blog.  Here's the colors we are working with.

I have been seeing lots of beautiful watercolor cards lately, so I decided to do one of my own.
I used the hostess set Bloom with Hope, it's just so beautiful!  I tried this a few ways before going with the one you see.  I ended up doing black embossing for the sentiment and flowers.  I embossed both on watercolor paper before adding any color.  For the color, I used my aqua painter and ink pads.
I did the flowers with Crushed Curry and the background is Bermuda Bay.
It was fun going out of my usual style to try something else, I hope you will do the same!  Join our color challenge and try out something new on your card.  Just go to the Creative Challenge Club Blog for all the details and to see more fabulous card samples!

Thanks for visiting!  Happy Stamping!
