MC Apr/16 - Lady Slipper - Miss You Mom

http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCApr16_LadySlipper_MissYouMom.html

I received some beautiful sample cardstock (pearlized, plain and textured) from Paper Gardens in Ontario. It was so nice and since they are having free shipping with orders over $50 (limited time offer), I decided to order a bunch more BIG GRIN. The pearlized that I tried, die cut beautifully. She also invited me to submit a mother's day card to her challenge. I really like the way this card turned out.

I also got several new stamps from Power Poppy and wanted to use the "Orchids Rock" set with the Lady Slipper. I'm partial to them since they grew wild in PEI.

I'm using an eCut file "Mom - Rose - Ornament" from Suzanne at Quietfire Design, available on the Silhouette onLine store. And using a sentiment stamp ("In A Perfect World" 4pce set) from Quietfire Design.

http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCApr16_LadySlipper_MissYouMom.htmlAnyway, you can see all the details and descriptions by clicking on any card image. Enjoy

MC Apr/16 - Coffee - ECD Thinking Of You - In a Perfect World

 I've been in a mood to make coffee cards... and then I was reminiscing about my friend thousand of miles away. Miss my friend bunches.

Side folded my brown card (6" sq). 

Found the coffee cup image onLine and created a stencil type image which I eCut. Layered it onto my brown front. Added some white gel pen details to the coffee beans and steam.

Used various alphabet stamps to create the text for the haiku. Inked the front text with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Continued the text on the inside right side. Used an anti static pad, inked the balance of the text with Distress Picket Fence and embossed with white detail embossing powder.

Stamped the coffee cups (Impression Obsession "Smell the Coffee") using the black and clear embossed.

On the inside left I die cut the "Thinking of You" (also available on Quietfire Design HERE) from white soft finish cardstock, adhered to card.

Stamped the quote ("In a Perfect World" 4pce set), Quietfire Design, using the black and clear embossed.

Final touch, adhered a piece of narrow black ribbon along the fold line and to the front, tying a bow.

I've been itching to make a scenic card using Designs By Ryn Sea Creatures 1 & 2 stamp sets. Then I came across a clear window card - and I haven't made one of those in eons... so now I have again. BIG GRIN

I sandwiched a lot of the elements between 2 sheets of Graffix clear plastic. I don't think I've done that before. Love the results.

http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCMar16_Easel_ECDCelebrate_JustForYou_BeWithThose.html

I was making color swatch samples of all my new Ken Oliver Color Burst colors I just got on 90# CP watercolor paper and thought not to waste the sheet, I continued sprinkling and dropping colors all over... When dry, I die cut with the Sue Wilson "Dorado" die. I now have a bunch in my stash...BIG GRIN

I was a bit disappointed in the liquid metals not realizing they were "LIQUID". sigh!! considering all the others were powders. Not cheap for a small container of liquid and the Platinum is basically Iridescent Medium. But they are pretty colors for as long as they last...

The butterfly was created from Acrylic Daubers on a craft sheet and cardstock smooshed through it.

http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCMar16_EaselPaperDress_ECDHappyBirthday_FairyWhispers_SomePeople.html
Blame it on my quilling friends... but I've been on a roll making paper dresses... This one is completely made of paper except for the waist piece and I added a face to this one since the dress really blended in to the background so I wanted to make it more obvious it was a dress... and since I wanted to use the "Fairy Whisper" stamp I used one of Ching-Chou Kuik's stamps - love her stamps but I don't do fairies too often. sigh!!

And then I was really in a mood to do filigree type border and easel style and I wanted lots of greenery... ROFL.

http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCMar16_AccordionFoldDressCard_ECDDream&HappyBirthday_Paris.htmlIt's been a couple years since I made a dress card... One of my quilling friends asked for one that I had made a while back for her birthday...
