Altenew January 2018 Inspiration Challenge & Simon Wednesday Challenge

Here is Altenew January 2018 Inspiration Challenge, below is the challenge photo:


And here is this week's Simon Wednesday Challenge - Add A Sentiment, below is the challenge photo:

Below is the card I made to attend the above two challenges:


I colored the images from Altenew's Farmers Market with Tombow dual brush markers directly onto the stamps, spritz some water, and stamped them on the white cardstock background. I used post it tapes to form a stripe on the white background and blend yellow, pink, and orange Distress Oxide inks on the stripe. Once the stripe is dry, I white embossed the greeting on the stripe and black embossed "kindness" under it. Finish the card by attaching some Studio Katia iridescent clear crystals on the background. Below is another look of the card:


Supplies:
Cardstock: MFT, Stampin' Up
Stamps: Altenew
Ink Pads: Versamark, Versafine, Distress Oxide inks
Others: Tombow dual brush markers, MISTI, clear crystals

I Like The Way You Roll

Here is Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #20 - Fun with food! Below is the challenge photo:


And here is Simon Wednesday Challenge - Something New, below is the challenge photo:

I made this below card to attend the above two challenges:


I stamped the images from Lawn Fawn's "Let's Roll" stamp set on the white cardstock to make the background. I stamped the flowers with rose gold ink pad among the stamped food images. I colored the images with my new Faber Castell Polychromos 120 set color pencils (one of my Christmas gifts). Compared with Prismacolor pencils, Polychromos are easier to blend since they are oil based color pencils (Prismacolor pencils are wax based pencils). Finish the card by white embossing the greeting on the round die cut black cardstock. Below is another look of the card:


Supplies:
Cardstock: MFT, Stamping' Up
Stamps: Lawn Fawn
Ink Pads: Versafine, Versamark, Tsukineko Delicata

Simon Monday Challenge - Something New

Here is Simon Monday Challenge - Something New, below is the challenge photo:

And here is the card I made to attend this challenge:


I was inspired by Yana Smakula's blog post for the technique of Faux Stationery Stamped Card, here is the link: http://www.yanasmakula.com/?p=61019. I would like to try this new technique, so I used PTI's Beautiful Blooms II to stamp the background with MISTI stamping tool and heat embossed the flower center with rose gold embossing powder. The greeting was stamped with Simon Says Stamp's Apothecary Labels and cut it out with the matching die. Finish the card by attaching the greeting label with foam tapes on the background. Below is another look of the card:


Supplies:
Cardstock: MFT, Stampin' Up
Stamps: PTI, Simon Says Stamp!
Die: Simon Says Stamp!
Ink Pads: Altenew, Versamark
Others: rose gold embossing powder (Altenew), foam tapes
