This week I'm using The Forest Chapel stamp which is another incredibly detailed stamp. I stamped the image with Clearsnap's Blackbird Chalk Ink, then I added touches of color with Zig Markers.
Ranger Antique Linen and Broken China Distress Inks were used over the image to provide a twilight effect. Walnut Ink was used along the edges of the image and the card. Then the completed image was matted with brown and blue cardstock to help accentuate the flowing stream.
This week's Simple Salutations Challenge #74 is all about creating masculine birthday cards. I used theTiger and Time sets to create this card.
This card came together quickly by using the same papers and inks. I stamped the Tiger on Kraft cardstock using Ranger Walnut Stain and gently inked the edges with additional Walnut Stain. The "sorry" sentiment was stamped directly on an oval die cut. Happy Birthday was stamped on cream cardstock, inked with Walnut Stain and mounted on Kraft cardstock. It was then added tot he oval with pop dots for dimension.

Hi everyone. It's a new challenge at Oozak.com and we'd love to see your creations about celebrations.
The pattern paper is from Bo Bunny's Praire Chic and I paired it with the new Wild Rose Studio stamp - Party Present - which I colored with Copic Markers, then fussy cut and placed atop a Spellbinders oval die cut.

This week's Simple Salutations Challenge #73 is all about embossing.
I am loving the digital images available at Cornish Heritage Farms. When I saw Laura in the store, I knew she'd be perfect for this card. She appears to be walking along and thinking of someone far away.
Hi everyone. I am so excited to be participating in the Spellbinders Platinum Party blog hop. Be sure to start at the Spellbinders blog to see all the participants for each day. Remember, you must visit all the participating blogs to be eligible for the grand prize.
I received some new dies from Spellbinders and some wonderful stamps from The Stamp Doctor. Did you know that The Stamp Doctor creates many of their stamps to work with Spellbinders dies? And did you know that Spellbinders creates The Stamp Doctor dies? Check out what I've been able to do with products from these wonderful companies.
Merry Christmas Card
I used the Spellbinders 2013 Heirloom Ornament die. It's the perfect die to create cards with. Just line up the largest die on the folded edge of the cardstock and run it through your Grand Calibur. A perfectly shaped card has been created in no time.
Die cut the next layer from red cardstock, then stamp the sentiment - it fits perfectly around the edge of the ornament! Cut the next size die from red cardstock and adhere to the larger ornament. Die cut a reindeer and ink it before removing it from the die (love this effect). Add to the top ornament with Glue Dots so that it is slightly raised from the surface. Now die cut the Holly Twigs and Leaves, inking them before removing them from their dies. Add them to the side with foam adhesives for dimension.
Tie a ribbon to the largest ornament and add this piece to the card front.
Die cut the 3rd die from white cardstock and add to the interior of the card. Stamp a sentiment from The Stamp Doctor inside and adhere.
Keep Your Spirit Bright
This next card uses my Scor-Buddy to create a gate fold card. Simply cut cardstock to 5 1/2" x 11" and score at 2 3/4". Rotate the card and score again at 2 3/4". Fold inward.
Add assorted pattern papers to the front, inking first with ColorBox Warm Red Chalk Ink. Die cut a red and smaller white ornament from the 2013 Heirloom Ornament die using the 2nd and 3rd dies, stamping the StampDoctor sentiment on the white one. Adhere together. Tie ribbon to the top ornament and adhere to the left side of the card only.
Die cut the 2 wreaths and bows from Spellbinders' new Holly Wreath die and be sure to emboss the top layer. Using a dauber, ink all the pieces with ColorBox Guacamole Chalk Ink, then assemble the wreath, offsetting it slightly so you can see both layers.
Using Glue Dots, center the wreath on top of the stamped ornament.
Add some bling with the Best Glue Ever to create the berries on the wreath.
I found this metal paper in my stash - it must be at least 7 years old!!!!! The store that sold it went out of business a long time ago and I knew I'd use it sometime. Well that time has come!
It did seem a little plain until I scored the metal with my Scor-pal - wow what a difference that made - it really brought the metal to life. I tied a ribbon around it before adding it to the card front.
The image is the Noel Outhouse, which I thought was too cute, all decked out with it's own holiday flair! I colored the image with Copic Markers, then die cut it, adding it to the card front with foam adhesives for dimension.
