Gingersnap Creations 40: Numbers

I will admit that this was the hardest challenge this month for me, by far! Serendipity doesn't make a ton of number stamps so I knew that I'd have to come up with something more creative! I sat down and my desk and started to play, and it came to me... make a number out of other stamps! Turns out to be my favorite card of the month!

I stamped lots of flowers (from the foursome flowers small cling set 439QCL). I colored them with copic markers added some diamond glaze to the middle and sprinkled glitter on that! My biggest discovery was sweet! I had written the word sweet with white pen on the tag but just wasn't happy with how it looked so I tried coloring it with my Copics and I just love the affect and how it matches perfectly now!

Gingersnap Creations Week 3

Hi All! It's time for another Gingersnap Creations Creation! The challenge this week was to use Metallics.. and I was having so much fun with embossing powder from last week I created this card...The stamp I used here is Palm Tree (004QCL) another one of my favorites.. of course I guess I haven't gotten one yet that I didn't like! I stamped the palm tree in blue on the blue cardstock base then added a layer of clear embossing powder to the whole thing to make it shine. I then cut a strip and began embossing layers of embossing powder on it blue, pink, and purple. Till it was thick and shiney like water. Then I inked my Palm Tree with versamark and stamped it over the top of the blue. Then I covered that with gold embossing powder! Matted it on Metallic purple and added a blue knotted fiber.

Gingersnap Creations Challenge Two

Hi everyone, Welcome to my second week of creation for Gingersnap Creations Blog! I'm having a great time playing with my supplies and taking on different challenges! This weeks challenge is GC28: Supply Challenge: Embossing powder!

For this card I used Serendipity Stamps Thank you II Horizontal (559E) and Pussy Willow small (855D). I used the light purple cardstock for the whole card. I stamped the pussy willows randomly on the strip with Versa Mark and then embossed them white embossing powder. I then inked over the top of them with a darker purple ink. This gives such a crisp white image. For the thank you, I stamped it and inked the edges in the same darker purple, then covered the whole piece with Versa Mark and clear embossing powder! I love the deep shimmery effect this adds to the card. Don't forget to check out the Gingersnap Creations Design Team pieces HERE

Every Wednesday Gingersnap Creations will post a new challenge, you'll be able to see what our Design Team and theirs have created for that Challenge! That also means no Challenge at the Serendipity Blog this month, but don't worry it will be back in February!

Don't forget to scroll down on the Gingersnap Creations Blog and read the interview with Mary, what an amazing woman! Now on with the challenge: Time

For this card I was working with some new inking techniques and I was very pleased with the results, unfortunately I didn't photograph it very well and it's a bit washed out! I used two different Serendipity Stamps! Time is What (1167E) the circle stamp and Butterfly from the Butterfly cling set (708QCL)! I stamped the butterfly separate cut it out, folded up the wings, and covered it with diamond glaze, and the final touch was to curl up a piece of black wire for the antennae!
