Colour Me #67

Well another fun round of Colour Me has come and gone.  I just loved all the entries for last week's challenge!  I look forward to this week's too... and here's why:

I LOVE these soft pastel tones, so very sweet and perfect for spring.  Subtle yet lovely doncha think?


Here is what I made for this week's Challenge:



I had fun with this one, love anything to do with coloring for sure.  This lovely little lady is from WPlus9.  My lovely friend Kimberly of Wienerhoneymooners gave me the sweet stamp and die.  It was easy to pair it up using these colors and my Copics.  I found perfect cooresponding DP from October Afternoon and used SU! cardstock and ribbon.  The sentiment is from my woodmount collection, this one from Hero Arts. 

What do you think?  Isn't this darling girl just the sweetest?  It is hard to go wrong with that image. 

NOW, ONTO AMAZING CREATIONS BY THE DT!!!!

A Regal Occassion

Have I ever told you that I love the Fusion Card Challenge?!  I DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Seriously, the DT rocks and the crafters that come out and play are no less talented.  It really just makes me happy to be part of this experience.

With that we bring you another challenge.  Check out this image below.  What does it bring to mind for you?



I just love the colors and it makes me thing of a regal occassion, something fit for royalty, especially with that blue....

Here is what I made for this week's challenge.  Less regal perhaps, a little softer, maybe a card for Mother's Day (thought I haven't marked it with any sentiment)  It is a fun mixture of Lawn Fawn Stamps and Dies and some Mama Elephant stamps as well.  The oval is from MFT and the cardstock is the Crisp Cantaloupe from SU! (one of my favie-fave colors).  I don't often gravitate towards royal blues but in this case it really grabs the eye.




Thanks for stopping and have a great day!

Seriously... wow right?!  

Here is what I came up with this week:


I seriously LOVE this stamp set!  Shout out to SU! for SALE-a-bration and my demo who hooked me up- Tonya Jastad- http://theheartdesires.com/.  Anyway, this image is was so fun to color with my copics and I cut it out and used dimensionals.  A touch of crystal effects on the eye and it looks so real to me.  LOVE.!  I have to say, I don't know what inspired this design, but I am quite happy with the angular look.  The Pinkfresh studio woodchips with color are the perfect accent to complement the lines.

Colour Me #65

Hi!  Welcome to one of the best days of the week- Colour Me Challenge Day!

Here is this week's fun challenge:



Here is what I made for this challenge:



I had to substitute my blues since I didn't have any Soft Sky, so I used Pool Party instead. I used my new Four Feather's Set by SU!  I accented it with the fun feather wood chip from Studio Calico and the these little gens (not sure what they are called so I'll call them Dew Drops) from Impress.  Te sentiment is from Impression Obsession. I haven't had a ton of occassions to use this sentiment, but I love it, so uplifting and I love the detail in the script. 

So there you have it.  I hope you will check out the other DT blogs and then head over to Colour Me to join us for the fun!

The elusive unicorn

Just a quick post tonight, I wanted to share the card I made earlier this week for the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge and the Color Q Challenge

Here are the challenges I played with.  Originally I was playing with the PSSparks sketch, but I missed the deadline, so entering it into anything goes. :)  



Here is the card I made.  The stamp set is te Paper Smooches Spectrum.  I love the fun and girly feel of this set.  I used SU! glossy white paper and it had a bit of a different effect with my markers, but I liked the way it made the shadows pop out. I had the pale plum marker but not the paper, so I had to use a slightly different shade of purple.  The DP is from Heidi Swapp.  I added some woodchip stars from Freckled Fawn for fun. 



Thats all, thanks for stopping this eve!

Delectable Dish with Fusion

OK, who's hungry?  If you aren't, you might be in just a minute and here is why....

Doesn't this week's Fusion Card Challenge look delectable?!  I surely think so and it inspired me to create something fun...


I don't usually use too much bright yellow on cards, but in this instance it just worked, so I went with it.  I love the bold yellow background and the washi tape.  I stamped the image from Penny Black on the white and then cut the ovals with My Favorite Things oval dies.  I then stamped the happy birthday and banner on Pool Party and cut it just so it would wrap around the cake stand.  My final touches include glitter on the cupcakes and the Neat and Tangled Sequins.  

Please head on over to the Fusion blog and check out the amazing creations the other ladies made. Then feel free to join us for the challenge. 

Thanks for stopping today!

Colour Me #64-

Hello crafting buddies!  How are you today?

Colour Me has a super fun and playful challenge for you this week, check this out:


Wow right?!  Such a stunning image and I love shells.  I assume they are abalone, but I don't know. I decided to keep with the ocean theme. 


I love these blueprint stamps from Stamper's Anonymous, the seahorse is super fun.  I stamped and fussy cut it out and colored it with my copics.  I stamped the background on my Coastal Cabana paper before running it through with my circle embossing folder.  Then I mounted the seahorse.  I put that on some Bermuda Breeze paper.  I added some red pearls for that extra pop of color.  

So, what are you gonna make for this challenge?  Will you go with an ocean theme, or maybe patriotic or????

Here are the fabulous creations the other ladies came up with:
