A little of this...

In an attempt to catch up on several posts I've missed this month I wanted to share a few cards I made for Lost Coast Designs challenges. Although the "Anything Goes" challenge is now past (first two cards) Challenge #82 - Wood is still going on. You have a few days left to join in the fun :)

My first card has a bit of dimension to it...I started off by spritzing my craft mat with Ivy Cottage, Bamboo Leaves and Gold Shimmer Spritz. I then dipped a piece of the Craft Plastic into the ink mix and heated to dry. I continued this process until I was happy with the look.

I stamped the Sketchy Cone Flower onto the Craft Plastic with Piano Black StazOn Pigment Ink.  I stamped the flower a second time onto white cardstock using VersaFine Clair Nocturne. The cardstock flower was colored using a variety of colored pencils, fussy cut and popped onto the Craft Plastic panel using double stick foam tape.

My second card was stamped over an alcohol inked background. This was really fun because I started off just playing with the AI's - sprinkling a bit then blowing it around until I was happy with the design. I then stamped the bicycle chick over the AI's, created a mask and then stamped the grungy background stamp over top. The sentiment is from one of Prima's books of sentiments.

Challenge #82 - Wood

My final card for the day is for the current challenge...Wood.  I'll bet you won't believe it but the background stamp (stamped with blue ink) I used on the Find Your Path card was stamped on the right side panel of this card! Looks totally different using Memento Desert Sand ink huh?  Anyway, that's the inside of the card - I used the Trees background stamp for the main image and a sentiment from Carmen's Veranda as well as a bit of wood pattern paper from Moda Scrap.

You can find the current challenge entry post here - #82 - Wood.  
Your project can be anything related to wood...stamped wood(s), trees, a creation crafted on a wood product, wood pattern paper, etc. Just as long as there is stamping somewhere you're good to go!
Hope you join in on the fun.


  1. All of these are wonderful! Great job!

    1. Thank you so much April ~ I appreciate your taking the time to comment :) (((HUGS)))

  2. I like them all but especially the last one.

    Hey, did you do the galaxy background with Perfect Pearls tutorial a long time ago. There is a pin on Pinterest that doesn’t link back to a blog and it says it is by Roni. I tried to search your blog, but couldn’t find it. Anyhow, I used the pin last Friday to make some cards and posted about it.

    1. Thank you so much Heidi! I like it too...I love making monochromatic cards. They are a challenge in a fun way.

      YES!! I did :) I saw it on your blog and left the link there but here it is again.

      I don't know what is up with my blog/pinterest right now - they don't seem to be getting along. Part of the problem may have been that was from my flickr account. I may try to go back and repin some of the older photos to see if it works.


Thanks for your thoughts and comments!
