STV April Fools Challenges

The Moderators over at Stamp TV have been posting some April Fools Challenges. I decided to do them today while I play with MISTI.

The first challenge posted by Cat was to use 2 of the same shapes on your card. I used Ovals on mine. I used my MISTI to figure out spacing for my ovals, then stamped them twice to get a nice dark image. The same is true for the sentiment and butterfly. I then cut 2 masks for the ovals and used a dotted border stamp to make my background in Kraft.


The next challenge posted by Karen was a color challenge. Your card had to have Blue and orange. For this challenge I used Post It notes to mask off the top and bottom then sponged on stripes of Powder Blue and Sweet Mango. The image of the chairs and sentiments are from By the Sea 2 andwere stamped in Black Onyx.


The third Challenge was posted by Lee and was a sketch challenge. I flipped the sketch upside down to have the circle at the top. I layered the white, kraft and then white banner together then die cut the circle out. I layered this piece on top of a white cardstock base, without glue. The placed them in MISTI, put the stamp over the card where I wanted it, picked it up with the lid of MISTI, removed my top layers and stamped  the grapes from Better with Age on the card base. I then colored my image and put the top on using foam tape for dimension. The sentiment was lined up and stamped in kraft ink. I am submitting this card for the Mod Squad Tic Tac Toe Challenge. This card used the right verticle line including piercing, coloring, and using rhinestones or pearls, I am sure enamel dots count too.


The fourth Challenge posted by Sean is a 1.. 2.. 3.. Challenge in which the card has to be 1 layer, use 2 ink colors and three different stamp sets. My layer is white, the 2 ink colors are Black Onyx and Ocean Mist. To do this card I mapped it out with my MISTI, using a blank piece of paper. I stamped the oval first, masked off the outside, then stamped the silhouette about four times to get a nice dark evenly colored image. Next, I stamped the sentiment, masked the oval and using a dotted stamp from Lots of Dots I stamped it moving it to make the background.


There you have it 4 challenge cards made in one afternoon!!  Thanks for stopping by!!

Love your challenge cards Susan. The grape stamp is one of my very favorite and I love what you did with it. I would like to case it if you don't mind.

CP Designs Inks

As may of you may already know I love Catherine Pooler's Inks!!  They ink up stamps do well with just a few light taps of the stamp to the ink, the colors all go together from each collection so no weird colors that don't go together. and the ink once wiped of does not transfer ink from one color to the next!! 
The first collection was named the Party Collection  and is composed of highly saturated bright and fun colors!!  I have used mine so much I just ordered the entire set of reinkers!!  I also can use these reinkers to watercolor with my water brush and for techniques that require more ink instead of using my ink pad!


The Party Collection
There is also two colors in the Neutrals Collection.

Now Catherine had begun releasing a new collection of colors called the Spa Collection!! These inks are a less saturated color which allows them to have more muted color.

Catherine has revealed the first 6 colors and they are Gorgeous!!



The next two colors will be revealed Monday on Facebook …

I wanted to make a special card for Michelle, so I made my first trifold card.  The card is mostly just one layer with the Ballerinas glues to each panel. I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks and with layering and masking created the floor.  For the stage lighting I used masking paper and sponged Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Wilted Violet Distress inks I them sprayed water on top and picked it up with a paper towel to get a distressed look. For the stamping I used Flirty Fuchsia, Party Dress, All the Jazz, Icing on the Cake and Sweet Sixteen inks from Catherine Pooler Designs . The stamps are all from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps…
