The Letter B - Bloggers Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with the Home is Where the Heart Is Challenge, the challenge this week is The Letter B (open to your interpretation).



I created a CAS card for this week's challenge, going "back to the basics" using "blossoms" and a stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs "Blessings Collection".  Rather than stamp and color the "beautiful blossoms" from the Fragrance stamp set, I simply inked them with markers and stamped onto White card stock.  The verse is from ODBD's Little Things stamp set.

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Fragrance, Little Things
Ink - Black, Markers (Olive, Pink Passion)
Card Stock - Black, White
Other - Big Shot, Damask Embossing Folder, Our Daily Bread Designs Custom Flourished Star Pattern Die Set

Artistic Outpost July Blog Hop

Welcome to the Artistic Outpost Design Team July Blog Hop! Each month, the fabulous designers at Artistic Outpost showcase projects created with various Artistic Outpost stamp sets.  This month, the Designers are sharing projects they created using the AO stamp sets found in the Country Life stamp category.

Before I share the details on how I created my card, I wanted to let you know that today is the last day of the Artistic Outpost Christmas in July Sale!  See this post on the AO Blog for more details.

I created a Mixed Media card using stamps from the Cowgirl Strength and Keeper stamp sets.


The background panel was created using the eBrush/Siphon Adapter Kit along with stencils from Latina Crafter, Dylusions paints and the Gelli Arts Plate (see this post here for more details).  I stamped the grass from the Keeper set in Black Archival Ink across the bottom, and added the bunting and "stitching" from the Cowgirl Strength set, popping up pieces of the bunting.  The cowgirl is stamped on White card stock, then colored with STAEDTLER Watercolor pencils, blending with Gamsol.  The sentiment is stamped on scraps of the background panel, with the "stitches" stamped on the edges.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Cowgirl Strength, Keeper
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Card Stock - White, Mixed Media, Green
Other - Gelli Plate, Paint Brush, Brayer, Water, Ink Blending Tool, eBrush/Siphon Adapter Kit, Non Stick Craft Mat, Dylusions Paint (Fresh Lime/Vibrant Turquoise), STAEDTLER Colored Pencils, Gamsol, Blending Nib, Latina Crafter Stencils
