This is my practice sheet playing around with directional lighting and shading. Used different blending techniques as well.

This one was fun, just challenging because I don't have many grey tones. I have super dark grey and then light ones. Lighter colors worked well with the warm grey W3 but would like some cool grey tones to try as well. The last umbrella is N7 neutral grey and BV06 which is a dark violet , has more contrast in person. I shaded so the darkest part of umbrella was on the left side.

It was fun watching all the card designers in the welcome video talk about that paper crimper, as I have one also and yes it was my first card supply purchase!
We all start somewhere.
I think my second card is much improved. Cleaner lines and easy on the eye.. Way too much going on with the first card.
Stamps used were Papertrey Ink Mat Stack 4 Collection and Chocolate Bliss from Gel a tins
This card was inspired by the above mentioned memories of the 80's. I had so much fun. I used a die from Papertrey ink to make the rainbow and then the dies from the stamp a faire set for the clouds. I added some glitter to the clouds to make them stand out a bit.
In love with the small sentiments in this stamp set. Added Happy Birthday from Birthday Basics stamp set.
Added some fun details with rhinestones and the cool font sentiments.

I stamped the image on the patterned paper in Smokey Shadow and adhered it on an oval die cut from Terracotta tile, outlined in with a larger oval outline cut from Ripe Avocado. I layered that over kraft cardstock stamped with a repeating Laurel pattern in Ripe Avocado. Sentiment is stamped in Smokey Shadow and is from The A-mazing stamp set.
Super simple card, but with 20 minutes I need that. I added some twine just to add a little pizzaz. If I had more time there would be some glitter!
So to prepare I went through all my supplies I was sent and put the stamps in their permanent home using Jim Holtz clear binder pockets. It makes it so easy to see all the stamps in the set when I am flipping through my stamps.
Well, hope all that are participating have a great stamping day tomorrow!

I substituted Papertrey Ink (PTI) Dark Chocolate for the Early Espresso color.
I was excited to use my new These United States (PTI) dies and stamp set for this challenge.
I first negative die cut the united states out of the kraft paper and glued what was left over onto the Dark chocolate card base. Next I die cut my two states, OR for my husband and AZ for me :) Used The A-mazing Stamp Set (PTI) and These United States (PTI) for my sentiments. Layered with red cardstock and the states and white paper strip adhered with pop dots.
Here is the front:
and inside - love that sentiment!
ys in gemstones. Put the card front on a 4 1/4" by 4 1/4" square card base in Navy cardstock. Thanks for looking.

Here is my take on the challenge.

For this challenge I was inspired by my new "The Amazing" stamp set to create this card from Papertrey Ink. The sentiments and stamp images are so fun. I used the coordinating dies to cut out several circle mazes and glued them together to give the main focal point some dimension. Added some fun washi tape and a sentiment from the Amazing set. Such a fun sketch! Thanks for looking.
Thanks for stopping by.
