The Cards I made -- the week of Jul 28

I admit....I love challenges!! I wish I didn't have to sleep so that I could try all of the challenges, lol. And I also admit..... I have so many cards I haven't uploaded on my blog. I 'm working on catching up in the next few days to upload the cards I made for the last couple of months. I already uploaded them on my SCS gallery if you want to check them out!



You can check the sketch for this card here. I colored the image with the reinkers and watercolor brush. I used some new In-Color and designer papers from Stampin' Up! Aren't they so pretty?
The stamp set is the one of the free stamp sets for Hostess. It is the one of my favorite stamp set in the new idea book & catalog. I just love the detailed stamps. It's so fun to color!!
このカードのスケッチは、こちらでチェックできます。メインのイメージは、インカーと水彩筆を使って色を付けました。Stampin' Up! から出た新しいインカラーの色と、デザイナーペーパーを使っています。とってもすてきなデザイン~。そして、このスタンプセットは、ホステスへのフリースタンプで、新しいカタログの中で気に入っている1つです。最近、色を塗るのが好きなので、細かい描写のスタンプのものが結構気に入っています。

Stamps: Serene Spring (Stampin' Up!)
Paper: riding hood red, kiwi kiss, designer papers (Stampin' Up!), watercolor paper (Strathmore)
Ink: Palette noir black (Superior), various reinkers (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories: ribbon (Michael's), flowers (Prima), brads (Making Memories)


This card is for SCS's Way To Use It 177 challenge. The challenge is to use scraps.
I had a ton of scraps, and I don't like to throw away. This challenge is a really great idea and I should do it from time to time to ged rid of some scarps.
I cut the scraps from Ginger Blossoms with 1" square punch and adhered them on the back panel. I also found the scraps for the borders, the flowers to add on the card. The main image was colored with Stampin' markers and the watercolor brush.
このカードは、SCSのWay To Use It 177のチャレンジで作ったものです。チャレンジは、「スクラップを使う」
Ginger Blossomsのスクラップを1インチの四角のパンチを使って切取り、バックのパネルに貼り付けました。ボーダーと、お花もスクラップから見つけたので、追加で貼り付けました。メインのイメージは、Stampin’ マーカーで色を付けた後、水彩筆を使って、少しぼかしました。

Stamps: Embrace Life (Stampin' Up!), Spiral Bouquet-sentiment (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: ruby red, river rock, whisper white, designer papers (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: basic black, various Stampin' markers (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories: ribbon (Stampin' Up!)


This card is for SCS's Limited Supplies challenge 179. The challenge is to make a card make someone smile.
I love this owl from Papertrey Ink. Every time I stamp it, it makes me smile. You cannot help smiling this innocent owl, can you?
I stamped the owl, branch, and flowers on the white cardstock. When I adhered them on the background, I made a little alternation for the branch and the one of the flower to look like the owl broke them.
The owl and grass were colored with Copic markers. The sky were sponged with aqua mist ink.
Papertrey Inkのこのフクロウが大好きで、スタンプをする度に、微笑んでしまいます。皆さんも、この無垢なフクロウを見て、思わず笑みが(笑)出てるかな?

Stamps: Wise Owl, Take a Bough (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: plum pudding, dark chocolate, white cardstock, designer paper (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: dark chocolate, plum pudding, spring moss, aqua mist (Papertrey Ink), Brilliance (Tsukineko), copic markers (.Too), Signo gel pen(Uni-ball)
Accessories: photocorner punch (Stampin' Up!)


SCS's Inspiration Challenge 139 would be the one of my favorite inspirations!! You can check the Pink Lemonade Bags here. I took my inspiration from this bag.

On the pink cardstock, I stamped Doodle This stamp set with the black ink. And then I colored them with Stampin' markers for the more details.
I mounted the ribbon and stamped the sentiment with the white craft ink. I used white gel pen for the faux stitches.
My favorite part of the creation was that it took only 10-15 minutes to make this card!

SCSのインスピレーションチャレンジ139は、私の中で、今までで一番気に入ったインスピレーションだと思います。Pink Lemonade バックは、こちらでチェックできます。私は、このバックをインスピレーションにカードを作りました。

ピンクのカードストックに、Doodle This のスタンプを黒のインクで捺し、Stampin’マーカーで色を付けました。リボンを付け、言葉を白のピグメントインクで捺し、白のジェルペンを使って、フェイクステッチを書いてます。

Stamps: Doodle This (Stampin' Up!), Floral Frenzy - sentiment (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: pink pirouette, basic black, whisper white (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: basic black, whisper white craft, Stampin' markers (Stampin' Up!), Signo gel pen (Uni-ball)
Accessories: ribbon (Papertrey Ink)

OCC Christmas In July challenge

I made this card for Our Creative Corner challenge. The challenge is Christmas In July. In the craft world, July is the great month to start working for the Holiday season. I saw my local craft stores started decorating the Christmas trees. Some of people think it's still so early to think about Christmas but it's always nice to plan ahead, isn't it?

I used the designer papers for the card and the colors were chosen from the ones on the paper.
The snowman was stamped with Brillance black ink and colored with Copic markers. It was added some drizzles with frosted lace Stickles (love it!)
The sentiment was stamped with cranberry crisp ink on the white cardstock and I cut it with my xacto knife.

このカードは、Our Creative Corners チャレンジで作ったものです。テーマは、「7月のクリスマス」でした。クラフトの世界は、7月からホリデーシーズンに向けて活動し始めます。近くのクラフト店でも、クリスマスツリーを飾り始めました。人によっては、今からクリスマスの事を考えるなんて早すぎると思う人もいると思いますが、早めに始めるのは、個人的には余裕が出来て良いことだと思います。

スノーマンは、黒のブリリアンスでスタンプし、コピックで色を付けました。後は、frosted laceのスティックル(お勧めです!)を使っています。

Stamps: Holiday Tag Team, The Snowflake Spot (Stampin' Up!), Snowflake Serenade - sentiment (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: bravo burgundy, designer papers (Stampin' Up!), white cardstock (Strathmore)
Ink: Brilliance (Tsukineko), bashful blue, cranberry crisp (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories: ribbons, brads, corner rounder punch (Stampin' Up!), Nestabillities (Spellbinders)

OCC Sketch Challenge

This is for another Our Creative Corner challenge. The sketh for the challenge is here.
I was inspired the card by Lynda Benden from OCC. I made the ocean waves for the wave on the sketch, just like Lynda did.
I used Prismacolor pencils and gamsol to color the girl. I cut her out and mounted on the central panel.
These desiner papers are from KI Memories. I bought them about 5-6 years ago. I think they are really fun for the summer theme. I don't know why I didn't use them until now....

これは、別のOur Creative Cornersのチャレンジで作ったカードです。このチャレンジのスケッチは、こちらで見ることが出来ます。OCCのLynda Benden (リンダ・ベンデン)さんが作ったカードをヒントに、私もスケッチの波を、海の波に仕立てました。
デザイナーペーパーは、5-6年前に買ったKI Memoriesのペーパーです。今まで使う事が無かったんですが、夏のテーマにピッタリの楽しいデザインだなと、改めて思いました。何で今まで使わなかったんだろう・・・・。

Stamps: Tilda (Magnolia Stamps), sentiment ($1 stamp from Michael's)
Paper: tempting turquoise (Stampin' Up!), white cardstock (Strathmore), designer papers (KI Memories)
Ink: Brilliance, VarsaMagic (Tsukineko), Prisamcolor pencils (Sanford), white gel pen (Uni-ball)
Accessories: ribbon (Stampin' Up!)

I'm sorry that this is so long. Thank you for taking your time to read all of it!
I promise the next one is going to be short, lol.
