Day 5. Dylusion's Ink Sprays "MISS YOU LIKE CRAZY" card using My Favorite Things Stamps & Dies

I am taking part of the ‪#‎thedailymarker30day‬ and this is my Day 5 coloring project.



A year or two ago I bought three 2 packs of Dylusion's Ink Sprays. I hadn't even opened the packages until earlier today.  I sprayed a big piece of watercolor paper and a smaller one.  The one I used on the card is the smaller piece. I sprayed Orange and Blue and then one of the White. The White seemed to blotch up the texture.  I wasn't really sure what to do with the pieces because I really didn't like the way they turned out. I didn't want to waste it,so I made something up.    

I used a My Favorite things Scallop border die and used the negative of the cut. I stamped the "Miss you like crazy" sentiment using a stamp from a My Favorite Things Bold Statements stamp set.  I added some orange brads and that's about it.

What a day I have had. It started out with me attending my first ever Body Blast class.  No pun intended, but I had an absolute BLAST!!  My legs hurt some this afternoon, but overall I feel really good and haven't felt tired at all today, which is usually the case. 

For Day 2 of the 30 Day Color Challenge I went with another Lawn Fawn set.   I have been wanting to stamp and color these fun images that I have had for about two weeks. I left it sitting beside me on my desk so I wouldn't forget about it. 


Even though I had to leave some elements off of the sketch, I wanted to share what inspired me.  The sketch below is this week's Retro Sketches RS#200:

Day 1. Distress Ink Sky "YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE" card using Lawn Fawn stamps/dies *W/MEASUREMENTS

I am taking part of the ‪#‎thedailymarker30day‬ and this is my Day 1 coloring project.



For Day 1 of the 30 day Color Challenge I first went and found a new sketch. I really like the Mojo Monday Sketche so that's where I headed. This weeks sketch was perfect for the stamps and dies that I had hoped to use. After getting all my stamps and dies out I said to myself "what the heck are you going to color?"..  so I decided to use some distress inks.  Two of the colors I used are new ones that I haven't ever used. They are such beautiful blues and were perfect for my sky.

here is the sketch I used: MOJO433: ~ measurements below sketch
MEASUREMENTS:

I used dies for most of the layers on my card, but you can easily just cut card stock to have the same layers:

base:  5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"   OR  4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2" (this is what I used)

blue layer:  4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

black layer:  3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
pattern layer:  3 3/4" x 5"

black layer:  2 3/4" W x 2 7/8" H
watercolor layer:  2 5/8" W x 2 3/4" H
*note on the water color piece. I had a bigger piece of water color that I had cut, applied inks and then cut to fit. The size above is the cut down size.

sentiment:
black layer:  1 3/8" x 2 5/8"
white layer:  1 1/4" x 2 1/2"


SUPPLIES:

card stock:  white, MFT Blue Raspberry, black. Watercolor paper
pattern paper: Doodlebug Hip Hip Hooray
stamps:  Lawn Fawn Sunny Skies
ink:  Versafine Black, Distress Inks:  Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire

30 Day Color Challenge ~!!



I have always wanted to take part of the 30 Day Coloring Challenges that Kathy Racoosin does, but I never have. This time I'm going to try and color every day for 30 days. You only have to color for 5 minutes or more and use any color medium.   I have friends that aren't card makers, but like to color in the adult coloring books, you too can join the challenge.    

Be sure to stop by Kathy's blog daily to see what she's posted or follow along on Instagram.

THE DAILY MARKER

Happy Coloring!!

"WARMEST WISHES ON YOUR BIRTHDAY" SSSC200 using Stampin' UP! stamps *w/measurements

Two years and three weeks ago I made a similar card using the sketch below.  I  had to search back through my blog to find the sketch and was happy to find that I had listed the measurements on that post as well..  thank you to me!  that made making the card go a tad bit faster.   

**MEASUREMENTS POSTED BELOW SKETCH


This is the sketch I used.  It's one from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and is #200.  Sadly the SSSC ended posting sketches at the end of 2015. They were some of my favorites.



**MEASUREMENTS:

card base:  5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"
white layer:  5 3/8" x 4 1/8"

banner flag:
black layer:  1 1/8" wide
pattern layer:  1" wide
*I made the flag ends and then adhered the pieces together.  They were cut about 2" long. I then adhered it to the card and cut off any excess.  I wasn't sure how long I wanted it to be so I made it longer to begin with.

"A VERY HAPPY Birthday TO YOU" card using Technique Tuesday stamps


Last night I made a card using an old OWH sketch. Today I decided to use the sketch again to make another card.  What a fun sketch it is.  I miss the weekly sketch challenges that I did using the OWH sketches.   

This was a super easy card to put together.  I used papers from a My Mind's Eye paper pad, the sentiment is from a Technique Tuesday stamp set called "Hi There"  and I finished it off with some brown brads.  

Here is the sketch that I used:

"HAPPY BARKDAY" ~ Happy Birthday Tupelo!! dog paw print card


A Birthday card for a dog ~ why yes!!    TupeloDesignsLLC is celebrating it's birthday this month.  I made this fun Birthday card in honor of Tupelo's Birthday.  Happy Birthday Tupelo!

I used a dog paw print stamp from a Hero Arts stamp set and a sentiment from a Paper Smooches Birthday Buddies set.  The papers are from a Recollections Christmas paper pad.  Super easy card.

Earlier today I saw a card posted by Kristie Marcotte using the sketch down below. It's one from Operation Write Home.  I was inspired by her card using the sketch, that I had to make a card using it myself.

I made a card a long time ago using the sketch ~ it was one I made and gave to my husband for Veteran's Day.   MY HERO HONORS CARD
