Color Throwdown Challenge!


OK, This is going to be a quick post because, I have already written this post once and Blogger closed out on me so at this moment, I am a teensy irritated soooooo, This is a challenge that I completed for The color throwdown and these are the colors that we are supposed to use, All of the card stock that I used is from Stampin Up! except for the white which I purchased at Kelly Paper here in the San Francisco Bay Area. The stamp set used is from The stamps of life. So with that being said, Here is my submission into the challenge. I hope you all enjoy my creation and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and I will see you all real soon!

CLP Challenge







Hello Friends, Here I have a challenge card that I want to share with you all. This challenge is from CLP Challenge Blog. I totally love doing challenges. I find alot of times, My Mojo just kinda slips away and I so desperatly want to create something beautiful so these challenge blogs help me with that. For this creation I used a Stamping Bella image called "Charlotte Ketto" Instead of using my Copics on this image, I used my Prismacolor pencils with mineral spirits and a blending stump. I haven't used my pencils in so long that I thought it was time to break em out and use em. I also love the blending capabilities with the mineral spirits with the prisma pencils. I have a few other images that I used my Prisma's on that I will be sharing with you all real soon.

So, some of the other details of this creation are, The card stock colors I used are Basic Black, Pretty in Pink and smooth white. The DP is called "Alissa so cute" from Bo Bunny. The sentiment is "Hello" from Tiny Tags(Stampin Up) and I added a little teeny tiny gem to the flower in front of Hello. You cant really tell but the larger panel in Pretty in Pink is embossed with an embossing folder and the black piece is punched out with one of my edge punches. I also used my scallop circle nestie and hole punched all of the scallops around the circle. The finished card is 5.5X5.5

I hope you all enjoy my creation!

I am off for now, I will be back real soon to hopefully share some more stampin goodness with you all.

Crazy 4 Challenges, flowers flowers everywhere!

Hello again Friends. I created this card and I absolutely love it. I wanted to create the trellis effect with vines and flowers going thru it. I actually created this card for no reason and then I was looking at some challenge blogs and realized this one would work for Crazy 4 Challenges. My colors are Pretty in pink, Cert. celery, Bashful Blue and Smooth white. I also punched out the flowers with my flower punch and I used a Martha Stewart punch for the Trellis's. The Butterflies are a sizzix Stampin Up! die. This card is not a standard A2. It is actually 6.5X4.5. I think this creation is super pretty, I haven't put a sentiment on it as I can do that when I am ready to use the card for something special. What do you think? Well, all for now. Time to watch Extreme couponing. Oh how I love that show and oh, how I love my coupons. I too am a coupon junkie!!! I will see you all real soon!

2 Challenges to share




Hello Friends, How is everyone doing? I have been pretty un productive the last 2 weeks.I again am off of work for epicondilitis(or aka, Tennis elbow) I will be having surgery withing the next 3 weeks and recovery is possibly 8 to 12 weeks. This for me sucks because I will have to go back to work in Sept. for the beginning of the school year. I just have to really take it easy all summer long. I will be extremely limited in my creative endeavors but will try to at least do some coloring of which will not put any strain what so ever on my hand or wrist. I will keep you all posted on my elbow situation but for the moment, I have a challenge card to share with you all. This is for 2 challenges. The color throwdown of which the colors are And for the sketch challenge, It is from "clean & Simple Stamping" This was a pretty simple sketch to follow and since I havent been around too much lately, I wanted to have something to share with my friends.

The sentiment I used "Just a note to say Hello" is from American Crafts stamp collection. The brown ribbon is actually a scrap piece from my ever growing ribbon drawer and all of my card stocks and Inks are from Stampin Up! I hope you enjoy this little creation and I hope to share some more things with you all before the big surgery day.
