Some Cards and Info on a Blog Hop

All of these cards were made last year but not yet blogged.  

Happy Birthday is a Quietfire Design stamp.  I stamped it with Ranger's Archival Ink jet black, cut the piece into a strip and used a corner punch on the ends.  Because of the thin strip the corner punch just added a nice design to the end.  Punched a small hole in each end and added some twine.  The tiger is an old Embossing Arts Co stamp.  It is stamped on glossy white cardstock with Ranger's resist ink.  I then covered the whole piece with black ink (probably distress).  A white gel pen to dot the eyes.

Next up...  the fern is a Fred B Mullett stamp, the background leaves stamp is by Anita's, and Happy Birthday is Stampabilities.  

  The background is Distress inks just sponged on, leaf background stamped with Archival, edges distressed.  The fern is stamped and then embossed with green powder; then more green added with marker and some shading also done with marker. Happy Birthday is cut with a Spellbinders die.  Twine.  Around the edges of the folded card is Viva Inka Gold.

This next one is not a folded card.  I die cut Tim Holtz's easel and put it on the back.  The postage stamp square is also a Tim die.  I cut it from white card.  Taped the edges so that I would have a border.  I think I sprayed on the background color.  The lighthouse and scripture are all one stamp, an old Rubber Stampede.  It is stamped with Ranger's Archival Ink jet black.  Additional color added with markers, a yellow glitter Sharpie paint marker and a white Sharpie paint marker.  

Next is a very simple sympathy card.  The flower and scripture are from an Our Daily Bread Designs set.  All the stamping and sponging of ink is with the same color, I just don't remember what I used - sorry.  

And a totally fun card sent to my son at camp.  Yes, he likes pink, although he's finally moving away from that.  Dylusion sprays, pink and then white through a Crafter's Workshop stencil.  The panther is from The Stamp Pad Co.  The leaves are Dylusions, embossed with pink, green added with a Sharpie permanent marker and then outlined with a Pitt Pen.  Writing and a scribbled border to finish. 


And Now The Blog Hop.  Quietfire Design and Scrapbook Adhesives are teaming up beginning tomorrow on the Quietfire Creations Blog and the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog.  I've been asked to play along and I will be posting on the Quietfire Blog March 21st so I hope you'll come hop along with us.  There is product to win.
