Alcohol Ink Anniversary Card using SSS Love Die

Happy Monday!

Today is the 9 year Anniversary with my hubby and 
I wanted to share the card I made for him. 

Anniversaries are all about love but I didn't want it all red and pinks. 
His favorite color is blue so I made a fun Alcohol Inked background using blues and a tad green. 

I used:
Sailboat Blue 

I then used the Alcohol Ink Lift  to stamp the words  form the SSS All My Love, You Matter and You+ Me stamp sets. 

I used the Gun Metal Mixative to add some interest and tie in his appreciation for guns. 

I had a prior attempt that didn't work out but I was able to use it as a "palette" so I can stamp the inside sentiment. 

Do ya'll remember that cheesy song form like early 2000's of U+Me= Us (Calculus)?

He will sing that randomly to me in a mocking boy band way 
and this sentiment made me think of that .

I then used the SSS Love Wafer Die in Vellum and Black for the sentiment. 

Thank you for coming by to check out this special card and I will see you next time!

Color Throwdown #522 using SSS Comfort and Joy

Happy Friday!

I have my submission for the Color Throwdown Challenge #522.
The colors this week are Coral, Red, Green and Gray

I just got me the Tom Holtz trimmer so I wanted to cut up some paper and do some layering. 

I used some gray card stock from my stash and heat embossed the SSS Christmas Sweater background with Ranger Red Geranium embossing powder. 

I then layered  this green pattern paper.

I used the SSS Comfort and Joy stamp set for the sentiment and greenery. 

I used Distress Oxide Inks in Abandoned Coral and Candied Apple to make the sentiment have a gradient look when I stamped it. 

The greenery was stamped with Memento Ink in Bamboo Leaves. 

I also added some berries with the Nuvo Jewel Drops in Rosewater to give another touch of a coral like color and it added some dimension. 

Thank you so much for visiting and have a great day!
Till next time!

Color Throwdown #521 using SSS Poinsettia Background and Mama Elephant Sending Hugs

Happy Saturday!

I was a tad intimidated by this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge #521
The colors this week are Silver Black Gray and White. 

I really wanted to use the new stamps I got and luckily worked out!

I used the SSS Poinsetta Background stamp with Ranger Silver Embossing Powder onto some Gray cardstock. I cut it out with the stitched rectangle die from the MFT Blueprints 13 Die-namics. 

The beautiful sentiment is from the Mama Elephant Sending Hugs stamp set and also embossed with the Silver Embossing Powder. 

I popped the sentiment panel up with the SSS big Momma Foam Tape and  mounted the whole piece on a white card base. 
I then finished off with some Nuvo Jewel Drops in Grey Mist  to add some shine. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!
See you next time!
