Today's card is for the MIM challenge. I stamped two different images in Hawaiian shores ink on white cardstock. The first image was three off set lines from Mod Squad set. The second image was the curved medallion looking image from background basics retro set. Used lovely layers set and dies to make the flower. Sentiment from In Bloom. Added silver sequins to add some sparkle. To me the background reminds me of rain behind a fun little old fashioned window. So the sparkles are like little rain drops. The color combo is from summer card camp 2 additional colors from wrap it up day. It is the combo in upper right hand corner.

Had some fun with tone on tone geometric pattern background. Added some fun flowers. Incorporated hi in the center of one of the blooms to do something different with the sentiment.

This weekend's homework is to create using additional added colors. I chose the first color combo. I heat embossed the flowers in black and then sponged the orange and red colors over the embossing. I put a vellum panel over and heat embossed the butterfly in black.

This is using the first color challenge. I incorporated black as well to really make the paper pop. I die cut pure poppy, raspberry fizz and berry sorbet with the new rainbow dies. Love those dies. I colored sheer Maya road blossoms with matching copic markers and attached with dimensional dot with a silver embellished brad. Added pops of simply chartreuse with the leaves and sentiment. Finished with sprinkling of red sequins. Made a similar card for summer card camp 2 and wanted to try new colors.

So today we learned about different ways to enhance die cuts. I chose the embossed die cuts technique. I have wanted to make chocolate bunnies ever since I received this die cut. I cut out 4 bunnies, then used scalloped circle to create teeth marks. I used copper embossing powder first then layered with chocolate scented and colored powder. For the tails I mixed chocolate, light brown and kaleidoscope powders. Wanted to make it a birthday card so I pieced together a sentiment using PTI Piece of Cake stamp set. I also showed a detailed picture of the embossing. It is really glossy and looks like chocolate in real life.Yummy!

Today I used the 3rd sketch from SCC2 and the color combo. I also incorporated this week's Make it Monday from Nichole Heady. I do not have any sentiment dies so I used the XOXO border dies from PTI and used a slightly darker copic marker to make the shadow lines.

This card used the sentiment piecing technique to give the card a subway art look. I used a shimmery silver cardstock for the base card. The main white paper is PTI white linen. I used SU Tangerine tango, PTI Raspberry Fizz and PTI Hawaiian Shores inks to stamp random sayings and designs. I made sure that my left and right margins lined up on the face of the card. I then popped the white card face up with pop up dots, used blue washi tape to make stripes on the sides of the silver cardstock. Added sparkly stickles to some of the hearts and dots. Was a fun card to make.

I mixed Stampin up cranberry crisp re-inker with white acrylic paint to get a color close to my peachy colored paper.
I used a paintbrush and applied a thin layer of the paint to the heart stamp and stamped it on white paper.
In love with this color combo for the summer camp challenge.
