Hidden Images from CD8.

I would like to encourage everyone to look into ordering the new CD from Pat Huntoon. It is well worth it and I’m sure you will enjoy all the new TQ’s.

This is one of them. Hidden Images and it’s just that. To view the card face on you really can’t see the images. But tip the card side to side and the images pop out.
Thus this made it very had to scan and just has hard to film.

My card is 5” x 5” square, and I used Butterscotch and Red Pepper Alcohol inks.
I also used both Galaxy Gold and Platinum Planet Brilliance inks.
This is really a striking card in real life.

Thanks so very much for stopping in again.

GC #72 Color Challenge is Neutrals and one Bold

Oh Ladies, this is a fun challenge, as at first I didn’t think this would be very colorful card.
But after finishing it I was really surprised.
I used Versa-Mark and clear embossing powder to add texture to the printed paper.
I wish the scan had been better, as it’s so neat to see in real life.

My leaf stamp image is from Hero Arts as is the background stamp.
Bright Pumpkin Orange is my bold color with a,
soft orange gingham check pattern paper. One small flower punch was used.
Would love to have you come play along with us.
Thanks for stopping.  Stampin’ Hugs Vada

Gather In the Goodness.

I was going through my stamps looking for something I could try out my Copic markers on and came across this image from Uptown Rubber Stamps.

Well I guess I should have kept looking, as this was more then I wanted.
Alittle too busy for me and just starting with Copic’s. Needless to say I’m not that pleased with my work, looks to “cartoon”, for me. Oh well it was worth a try.
Thanks for stopping in again.

Inside of the card is also another image from Uptown Rubber stamps.

GC. #71 Random Redhead Challenge is “Inches”.

Do you like something small? Well Inches is the challenge for you.

Just 1” x 1” is all you need. For my card I went with small garden tools and flowerpot and a pumpkin from TAC. Colored them with Copic’s.
My background paper is typing paper, which I embossed. The punch is from Martha Steward.

Thanks for stopping in. Let’s see your inches..

Harvest Blessing

I’m not sure what the proper name is for this card. I looked up Popping Pastels and that didn’t seem to be what I did for this card.
It’s just Versa Magic White Chalk, and Chalked. Very easy to do.

My background stamp is from Stampin’ Up and the center is Kitchen Sink stamps.

Thanks for stopping in today.
