Printworks Collection New Friendship Release …

Hi everyone!  I’ve been making Christmas cards for Printworks!  Now I get to show them to you!  If you want to see them all at once, you can, here, here and hereThere are some of my Thanksgiving cards from years past here.

This cute little kitten is called Morris Kitty… isn’t he cute! The convertible is called Muggles Morris!

Well, I just had to make them up Christmas like!  All kittens carry around mistletoe in a convertible at Christmas don’t they?! hoho  They do on cards anyway!

Such cute sentiments too!

I colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  Shoot me now, I didn’t write the numbers down.  I always think I’ll remember!  What!  I rarely remember. ugh.

I die cut the panel with one of Memory Box Wrapped Stitched Rectangle dies and the kraft panel with one of the Memory Box Basic Rectangle dies.

Funny what you see in pictures and too late!  The cards are already winging their way to be at the convention in California in November.  If you’re going, be sure to stop by the Printworks Collection booth!   Anyway,  I missed coloring the heart in red!  😀

Addicted To CAS Challenge – One Layer Card…

I’m so excited to be a guest designer over on the Addicted to CAS Challenge blog today! I love CAS, coloring and dies so I really enjoyed this! Thank you for having me ladies!

The challenge this week is One Layer!  I hope you’ll join us!

 

I decided to make a one layer die cut inlay card using My Favorite Things Beach Scene Builder Die-namics set and Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies.  All the pieces are cut from an A2 size white card-stock panel, inked with Distress ink and the ink blending tools, fit together like a puzzle, taped together on the back and adhered to an A2 card base.

 

I did go back in with Distress Markers to accent the embossed lines of the Palm Tree die cut.

The sentiment is from Printworks Collection E4730 Escape the Ordinary.  If you love beach images…you have to see what all PW has…lots of fun images and sentiments.  Check out the releases HERE.

The cutie little crab is from Lawn Fawn Palm Trees die set. I die cut two and glued them together at the very tip of it’s claws.  Pretty cute little photo prop! hehe

Linking my card to some other challenges…

Printworks Collection 2016 LE Snowman, Little Rascals…

pam-sparks-le-snowman-2016-vs2

Could this pair be any cuter?  The ‘snow play‘ sentiment fits the image to a ‘t’!  This is the NEW 2016 Limited Edition Snowman from Printworks Collection.  Part of their latest release which includes more snowmen and wonderful Winter/Snow sentiments. You just can’t get any cuter than Annette’s super cute snowmen!

I stamped the snowflake stamp in the background on Strathmore 140# Mixed Media Card-stock with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with white embossing powder.

Distress ink pads and the ink blending tools blend wonderfully on this Mixed Media card-stock. I blended over the embossed snowflakes with a couple different blues and spattered some blue ink and then white with a paintbrush.

I painted/colored the snowman and pup with a combination of Zig Clean Color Brush Markers and Distress Inks. Stamped on watercolor paper with Ranger Archival Black ink and cut out by hand.

The snow border is a new poppystamps die, Dotted Curve.

Wow, the last few weeks…where did they go?!  I’ve been making cards, just can’t show them! waaahhh   In the meantime, my camera just up and quit one morning!  Did you hear me scream? A new camera was not on my radar! If you know me, you know I like to research and develop so to speak. lol

Yes, I lost sleep! Thanks to a generous husband, a very knowledgeable friend and a great salesman at the camera store I have a new camera and now if the sun would just shine…. hehe   I’ll figure it out!  I have to! lol

Tomorrow is our area stamp club so I’m going to escape from home for a few hours.  I am probably the only person that still hasn’t taken their Christmas tree down.  I knew it wasn’t a good idea to get a fake tree!  Quit laughing at me!  haha  I’ve been very busy! lol

I’ve missed coming here and chatting through comments.  I always appreciate hearing from you and thank you so much to those that sent me Christmas cards!  I LOVED them all!

I’ll be back!

Printworks Collection Watercolor Poinsettia and new stencil…

pam-sparks-2016-poinsettia

Did you know Printworks Collection has stencils now?!  Yes!  They are so cool too…random and fun!  Here I used the new Summer Rain stencil with the Watercolor Poinsettia J2288.  HERE they are in the store…

pam-sparks-2016-poinsettia-close

I heat embossed the poinsettia with gold powder and colored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens. To get the shimmer on the petals and leaves, I colored it with a Spectrum glitter brush marker.

I edged the background stenciled piece with Gold Delicata ink and an ink dauber.

The frame is from Taylored Expressions. The sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh, the Christmas collection.

How are you?  Yikes, don’t ask me. lol  I have stuff everywhere.  I keep starting things and then starting something else! HELP!  I wrap presents until I can’t find the right size box so I try to design a tag until I can’t find the right die for what I want to do.  How could I not have the right die you ask?  Well, I wonder the same thing!!! Cards started then stopping for life.  This morning I went to get a hair cut and I forgot to take the little bag of cards that I’d put together to give the gal. So another trip out and about.

I have another birthday card done though!  YAY!  I’ll post it next.

Thanks so much for your sweet comments and encouraging words! I need them! Take care and keep warm and cozy!

P.S.  Order from Printworks today through Friday, December 16th and receive FREE SHIPPING on all orders over $20. No code needed!

oh man!  These snowmen are SO cute and the sentiments!  I NEED them!

Annette has come out with her 2016 Limited Edition Snowman “Little Rascals” and Christmas release! Get them here!

Printworks Collection Fall Cards…

pam-sparks-lives-full-of-t-giving

I’m back with two more cards using pieces from that full sheet of leaf watercoloring that I did a couple weeks ago. THIS post tells what I did.

Here I die cut a piece of card-stock with the Memory Box Pinpoint Circle Layers dies, stamped and embossed the new Printworks sentiment, ‘Let our Lives‘ in gold embossing powder and embellished with a poppystamps  Oak Leaf Swirl die cut.

Inside I stamped and heat embossed in gold…the new ‘with warmest thoughts and Best Wishes stamp.

pam-sparks-fall-card-inside

and a close up photo…

pam-sparks-let-our-lives-close

 

For this next card, I cut the piece of leaf background down to fit behind this Avery Elle Pierced Rectangle dies frame that I was able to die cut easily because I haven’t clipped the dies apart yet.

Don’t shoot me. ugh. This poppystamps Maple Leaf isn’t showing up in the stores I usually link to!  So sorry about that. I didn’t realize it was a bit older and didn’t check first. Bummer cuz the little leaf border really worked up fun like this I thought. Hopefully you already own it! hehe (or google it)

pam-sparks-watercolor-leaves-and-leave-die

On the inside I stamped another new sentiment from Printworks ‘Thankful‘.  I love it, there are places to add a little coloring!

The little 3mm gold pearls I used are HERE.

Both of these cards are A2 size.
