IC142 & OCC challenges

How's your weekend so far?
School is going to start from Monday and I'm trying to get my kids' backpacks together. I will miss my kids are not around during the day, but I can't wait to have some quiet time!!

I have 2 cards to show you for this post.



IC142 challenge

This card is for SCS's Inspiration challenge 142 -- Marimekko Umbrellas.
You can check Marimekko Umbrellas here and the photo above is the one I took my inspiration.

I stamped the flowers with VarsaMark and the blue dye ink ( I put VarsaMark first and then a dye ink without cleaning VarsaMark -- I clean a stamp everytime after I stamp on a paper so that VarsaMark ink pad doesn't get dirty) on the very vanilla cardstock, and I heat-embossed them with the clear embossing powder. I do this technique when I don't have a pigment ink I want to use.
After the embossed image was cool, I stamped the leaves with the brown ink. The cool thing about it is that the brown color doesn't stick on the flowers because they were heat embossed. It's the one of my favorite techniques all the time!

Stamps: Print Petals (Stampin' Up!)
Paper: chocolate chip, cool caribbean, very vanilla (Stampin' Up!), designer paper (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: chocolate chip, cool caribbean (Stampin' Up!), VarsaMark (Tsukineko)
Accessories: ribbon, photo corner punch, clear embossing powder (Stampin' Up!), brad, buckle (We R Memory Keepers), flower (Prima)

OCC Challenge

This card is for Our Creative Corners challenge.
I didn't get to play thier challenge last week so I combined it with this week's challenge. You can check about the challenges here and here.
このカードは、Our Creative Cornersチャレンジで作ったものです。

I stamped the leaves with the colors from the challenge on the white cardstock. The scalloped border was made with the border punch from Fiskars. I chose the felt flowers to make the card look warm like autumn leaves.
I can't wait a fall is coming here in Texas!!

Stamps: Beautiful Blooms, Floral Frenzy (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: pumpkin pie, chocolate chip, old olive, whisper white (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: pumpkin pie, ruby red, old olive, chocolate chip (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories: felt flowers (red-Queens & Co. orange- JoAnn's) ribbon (American Crafts) border punch (Fiskars)

Thank you for visiting。
Have a wonderful day!
