    Time for another Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge! Today our picture comes from Hostessblog.com We had several but I chose this towering chocolate work of art. I like the look of the autumn colored fruit against all the chocolate. Yummy!

    BEST OF 2010

    All images are Innovative Stamp Creations. For my card, I white embossed the leaf background on dk chocolate card stock. I did the same with the sentiment, and extra leaf and one of the pears. I used chocolate brown embossing powder on the big leaf, two more pears and the sentiment, again. I pieced together the sentiment from the two different colors. For the big leaf and one pear, I used dye reinkers  and a water brush to color them. The final card measures 5.5 x 4.25.

    Please stop by and visit all of the Diva team, I know they’ll have some yummy creations for you!

  • April ISC Day 2



    On Day Two of the ISC Artistic Projects, we were challenged to make a card using 3 ATC’s in a connected series. I chose to use the fruits and flowers along with the postage stamp outline. To begin, I temporarily attached all 3 ATC’s side by side to a piece of paper. After stamping and masking the images, I stamped a script using one end of a Kpad. I colored the images using markers and a blender. To cut them out, I first cut a straight line very close to the wavy edge then used an 1/8 inch hole punch to make the cut outs along the edge. They’re attached to a green layer I cut using a Spellbinders scallop edge square. I used my Nestie Resizing technique to stretch the die to fit my image.

    For the background of the ATC’s, I stamped various butterfly, netting and swirl images then masked areas and sponged on bands of color. They’re attached to slightly larger layers of red then to a green layer that was stamped tone on tone using some of the same images. It’s attached to a  6.75 x 4.25 gold ochre card. A little bit of an old size, but it will fit inside a #10 business envelope. I used a 1/4 inch punch and a stylus to create some red and green faux brads and attached them in opposite corners.

    If you’d like a chance to win an ISC sheet of images, be sure to leave a comment. You don’t have to leave a comment on every blog, every day, but doing so could increase your chances of winning. You can also leave a comment on the ISC blog, if you like. Two winners will be chosen from the comments received over the next 3 days to pick an ISC sheet of their choice.

    I hope you enjoy all the ISC team’s projects. Be sure to come back tomorrow for more ideas and inspiration.

    Thanks for stopping  by! Your comments are always read and much appreciated!
