Here’s what I came up with:

37133910_294196381175005_7620842880277413888_n

I did use some retired ribbon, but I have a ton of retired products that need to be used up 😉

The next challenge is a color challenge over at SplitCoast Stampers. Since it was the 700th color challenge they gave us 5 different color combos to choose from! Here’s the color combo I chose to use:

Berry Burst
So Saffron
Pear Pizzazz

I watercolored the mermaid and fussy cut her out and popped her up onto dimensionals.

I sponged the background diecut piece from Blended Seasons Bundle with Tranquil Tide and stamped on top of it with Old Olive.

I have been working on a sewing project lately so haven’t had much time for stamping….a crafer’s work is never done, lol 🙂

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed day! ❤

I just used accents of the Berry Burst with the bottom layer and then the punched scalloped cardstock…..oh, as well as the sentiment stamped in Berry Burst. I used some bling to add some interest and pretty much stuck to the sketch.

I frayed the ends of the Blackberry Bliss twine (matches close enough for me) after I made a bow and then added it on with liquid glue to make sure it stayed. I absolutely love, love, love this stamp set, well the whole suite actually!!!! I can guarantee that you will be seeing this bundle a lot, lol 🙂

GDP #149

Hiya Stampers!

Today’s card is for the challenge over at Global Design Project. They gave us a pretty color combo to use.

GDP149_Colour_Challenge

Here’s what I came up with:

38534433_257411481534757_4340757754818854912_n

Yes, I used the Blended Seasons stamp set again, lol! I can’t help it, it’s so pretty as well as #1 it’s not going to be around for very long and #2 it was already on my desk from the last time I used it 😉

Here’s another view:

The ribbon is from a bouquet of flowers my hubby gave me and I save everything. It’s not a perfect match, but good enough to work.

I will be very sad to see this bundle suite go, if you don’t have it yet….you better hurry up! It’s only here until August 31, 2018 and it’s while supplies last!!!!

38515508_2045631985468726_5891416097441185792_n

I took a piece of water colored paper and ink washed the navy ink all over it and distressed it with splatters of ink before die-cutting it out with those gorgeous framelits from the bundle. I heat embossed the flowers onto water colored paper and yes…..I fussy cut them out, doesn’t really take that long at all.

Well, I hope you like my card, thanks so much for stopping by. Have a blessed Sunday 😉

Tea Room Memories & More Challenge Card

My next card share today is for the sketch challenge over at Sunday Stamps. Here’s the sketch they gave us to try:

SSC184

Here’s what I came up with:

38392323_10211756243492541_1824890737456578560_n

Pretty much stuck to the sketch layout. The very top layer is a printed window sheet, so it’s mostly clear but it does have some gold embossed butterflies and bees on it. It was hard to get a good picture of it.

Here’s another view:

I used the new Tea Room Memories & More card pack so it was super simple and fast to put together! The butterfly is actually a sticker that comes in the kit. I used my embossing buddy on the back to take the sticky away so I could pop it up on dimensionals.

Sorry about the glare, like I said it wasn’t easy trying to photograph….no matter what angle I used it had that darn glare! I used a piece of the beautiful Tea Room DSP on the bottom layer. I just love this whole suite of products!

Well, I hope you like my card. Have a very blessed weekend! ❤

 

Poppy Blended Christmas Card

Hey Bleeps (blog peeps)!

My card today is for two different challenges over at SplitCoast Stampers.

The first challenge we were to CASE a card from the Featured Stamper Jenny Hall’s gallery.  Click here to see her pretty card that inspired me!

Here’s how my card came out:

2

I used the same image she used from the limited-edition Blended Seasons stamp set. I changed up the colors to make it a Christmas card. My card isn’t a fancy fold card like she did, but I needed something fast since I haven’t stamped all week.  Her card is very soft and beautiful but looks intimidating to me with that awesome card shape and fun fold! 😉 She’s a really talented lady and very inspiring demonstrator. I will have to try her card shape another time, it’s very unique and eye catching!

Here’s another view of my card:

The next challenge is a color challenge:

Poppy Parade
Lemon Lime Twist
Garden Green

colourlovers_com_cc698_abd89d84e6b495f0ba1c3f4c3bbaeafb9622380c

Here’s what I came up with:

3

I distressed the Whisper White Framelit diecut by sponging Garden Green ink all over it.  I then spritzed it with water and hurriedly dried it with my heat tool. I smooched it in ink and finally took a sponge dauber and added more ink to the edges.

Here’s another view:

1

I stamped off with Soft Sea Foam using the no line water color technique, this was my first time trying it! I fussy cut the flower image and popped it up onto some dimensionals. I used some gold sequins and gold Wink of Stella (for the flower centers) from my stash as well as some gold thread to add a little bling. I hope you like my take on these two challenges and how I merged them together.

Don’t forget that The Blended Seasons Bundle is a limited time stamp set for the month of August only! Don’t miss out, orders yours today!

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed weekend ❤
