Mojo Monday 88/color throwdown



Well here it is. This card is doing double duty Mojo Monday 88 http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com/ and the Weekly Color Throwdown http://www.colorthrowdown.blogspot.com/ . The colors where Lavender lace, Old Olive, and Elegant Eggplant. I used the Great Friends stamp set. I used the leaf stamp with versa mark on the bottom Elegant eggplant piece and also stamp once with the leaf stamp on the top and heat embossed using the clear embossing powder. I stamp the butterfly and on white card stock and cut it out. I added some black brads, black gingham ribbon and some stiches with the white gel pen. I am really happy with this card. I love this sketch and will probably use it again. I'm really proud of myself for getting this done, with the way our evening was going it's a miracle I got anything done. Priorities--(stamping and then cleaning). Well I guess I'd better get to that cleaning. Thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to leave comments:)
Here is a picture of the inside of the card. I used the top note die and cut it in elegant eggplant and white CS. I'm not sure if I want to add a butterfly to the inside or not. What do you think?

Easter

This is the Easter card I made for my kids this year.  This is so fun.  The chicks are made from the Circle punch, itty bitty flower punch, the scallop circle punch, and the owl punch.  I made the grass using the new fringe scissors.  The clouds are done using a template and sponging soft sky ink.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Flowering Fields

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!  
Today's card uses another stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog.  It's called flowering fields on page 12.  You can have this beautiful stamp set for free with a qualifying order.  I stamped some of the flowers with versa mark and embossed with white embossing powder.  The other ones were stamped in blackberry bliss.  What do you think of that ribbon?  The pool party glitter ribbon is in the Occasions catalog and it is AMAZING.  Most glitter ribbons can be difficult to work with but not this one.  It is so easy to work with and ties beautifully.  The sentiment is from the "First Sight" stamp set in the Occasions catalog.
Well that's about it for today.  I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend and enjoying the Super Bowl today.  
Happy Stamping!

Avant Garden

Hello stampers,

I'm back with some more coloring.  This is another card from my Challenge class last month.  I used the water color pencils on this card however I did not use any water.  I just simply used them like you would a colored pencil.  I love how this turned out. 
Here is a close up of the flower....
I used the gray pencil and the white pencil on the flowers and a little bit of green on the stem.  This stamp set is called Avant Garden and can be yours for free with a $50 order before tax and shipping.  This offer is only good until March 31 and only while supplies last so don't wait if there is something you had your eyes on.  You can check out all of the free sets by clicking on the links for Sale-a-bration on the right hand side of my blog.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by
