TIC Day #1(Tuesday's Inspirational Challenge) - 5 Layer Minimum - Submission

Good Evening Everyone! Here is Connie's submission! Such a bold and happy card! Her bee looks so cool! It looks like Connie's card has 6 layers! She did a wonderful card and her layout is great. Connie has a blog site "INKspired Treasures". Be sure to stop by and check out the details of this card. Thank you Connie for participating in first TIC!!!

Good Afternoon Everyone. . .

This tag is my submission for Jen's Sketch Challenge #3 at "Pieces of Me". It also fulfills my TIC. I know, that sounds a little weird but you have to admit it sounds catchy, don't you think?

Anyway this tag was created with SU Big Bloom stamps and the sentiment is by PSX. The bigger flower is a die-cut made with my Craft Robo. The color combo is SU Cameo Coral, Brocade Blue and Old Olive. The round stamped background was made using Making Memories Foam stamp. I applied Making Memories Acrylic paint and stamped the background. The BG paper is by Autumn Leaves and the ribbon by Basic, Basic. The button is by SU.

I have another submission. This one is from Ana! Wow, she has a lot of layers! Awesome. That bear is such a cutie. I love how fuzzy it looks! She did a wonderful job at adding all the elements on her card without it looking cluttered! Beautiful job! Ana has a gallery that you can view. . .be sure to click here to check it out!

Hey GoodMorning Everyone!! Here is Jen's submission. I'm glad she decided to play! I love how Jen paper pieced Bella's pants to match her background. She did a fabulous job! I also love her layout too. I counted 6 layers on her card but if you count the stiches, she has actually 9 layers. Any embellishment that overlap one another is considered a layer. Thanks Jen for participating! I know you are a busy girl!

Jen has a blog site called "Pieces of Me" and she has a sketch challenge in progress right now so be sure to check it out. The details of this card is also posted on her site.
This is "my" submission for the day! Haha! Trust me this is a challenge for me too. The only way I can grow as a cardmaker and stamper is to challenge myself and experiment with different products and materials. I decided to do something different. I decided to make a card with scrapbook embellishments. This card has no stamping whatsoever!

This card is a submission by Debi. This is such a stunning card with the bright and dark contrast. She also layered the card in such an interesting pattern. Great job Debi! I don't know if Debi has a blog site because she didn't give me a blog address. I need to ask her. Thank you Debi for your submission!!

To the right is a card that was submitted by my friend Joyce from Oregon. I met her online and we email one another to touch base once in a while. She was kind enough to send me a picture of her card that she created using multiple layers. She said that she cut each layer. . .wow, that must have been a lot of work. Well, she did a splendid job! I love the different patterns. The flower pattern reminds me of an iris fold. Thanks Joyce for your submission!

Here is Tejal's submission! Isn't it cute!! Looks like she has 5 or 6 layers on her card. I think she did a wonderful job. Tejal loves using "bear" stamps by what I gathered from her other lovely card creations on her blog site. Check out her blog site "Creating New Expressions Everyday".

This is the second submission to my TIC!! Isn't this card elegant? I love it, it's beautiful. This one is from Dana and her card has 7 layers! It looks like she also followed my sketch!! Dana has a blog site called "Kismet, Art, and Life" so be sure to visit her site for more details on this beautiful card. Thank you Dana.

Wow I already have a participant of my first "TIC" (Tuesday's Inspirational Challenge). See the previous post for the details!!

This first submission is from Wendy! OMG. . .this card is absolutely gorgeous! Wendy created 7 layers to create her card. The details of this wonderful card is posted on her blog site: Crafty Butterfly Stamping Blog. I must try the technique she used to create this card.

I'll add new submissions as they come in and will move the post up to the top so everyone can see all your beautiful work!

Don't feel intimated! Just do it and send it to me! All cards are beautiful!!

Beth said...

These entries are beautiful. I uploaded my cards onto my blog this morning. You can chose which card you like best. You were a big inspiration. Thank you, Maria!

Jen said...

phew! I wasn't sure if I did it or not. hahaha... I was counting and didn't know if the paper piercing would count. Thanks for this challenge dear - you really made me "think" about this one. And yea, I really was trying to make it work with the other challenge so that I didn't have to do two. Well - if I can finish Beate's challenge, then I'll see if it's more than 5 layers... will keep you posted.

Girl, could you tell I was Visayan? I knew you were Filipina, but I wasn't sure if Ilocano or Tagalog. My mom can speak Tagalog and a little bit of Ilocano. I can't speak either...I do however understand Visaya. Sometimes though, when my mom speaks to me in her language, and if I don't understand what she's saying, I just make like I do. Shame ah - I no like get busted...hahaha...


Jen said...
