Dragonfly and Flowers

Here is my entry for Kristina Werner's Color Challenge #35 ! Ok so the title should say Dragonflies and Flowers, but I added the second dragonfly and forgot to change the title. Then I submitted it for the challenge....and now I can not change it! Oh well! :O) This was a quick card too! I had no time at all to create it!! So busy these days!!

The colors for this challenge are chocolate chip, close to cocoa, baja breeze, so saffron, and very vanilla. I used card stock in all of those colors except for the so saffron. I chose the Pocket Silhouettes for the stamp set. For ink, I used baja breeze, so saffron, and chocolate chip. I used Stickles for the glitter. I used Baja Breeze striped ribbon and a very vanilla hodgepodge hardware. I used the designer label punch too! I also used the hostess stamp set called Organic Grace for the dragonflies!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!

Winter Wonderland

So we have two pictures of the card today! My sweet husband helped me to take the pictures! I had trouble getting the sparkle to sparkle!!! The first picture is his and the second is mine!

Please check out my sister-in-law's site @ The Daily Ink for her card on this challenge!

I just love Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenges!! They really get me thinking!! Thank you Kristina!!! It seams that the only time I get to stamp right now is for one of her challenges. This is Color Inspirations Challenge #34. The colors for this challenge are pale plum, perfect plum, bordering blue, sage shadow, and certainly celery! Love this color combo!

I had so many ideas! Here is one that I came up with! I used the Punch Pals set! The colors of card stock that I used are whisper white, pale plum, perfect plum, and bordering blue. For ink, I used Stazon Black, whisper white craft, perfect plum, pale plum, sage shadow, and certainly celery. I also used the watercolor pencils and a blender pen. For all of the sparkle, I mixed it up between Dazzling Diamonds and Stickles. To make the snowflake brad sparkle, I used the 2-way glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds. I used the scallop circle punch, 1 1/4 circle punch, and the 3/4 circle punch. I also used dimensionals to make it pop! I added a the bow made of white taffeta ribbon with a mini glue dot to the corner!

So what do you think? Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!

Christmas Tags!

I just love the Punch Pals set!! It is one of my favorite holiday sets!! It is just so cute!!

I used Riding Hood Red, Hunter Green, Baja Breeze, and Whisper White card stock. Oh yeah and a tiny bit of chocolate chip. I stamped all of the images in Stazon Black so that I was able to use my watercolor pencils and the blender pen to color in the images. I also used Real Red and Baja Breeze ink. Then I used Stickles to add some fun glitter and silver brads dipped in Dazzling Diamonds for the Christmas Tree tag. I used the scallop edge punch, 1 1/4, inch, 1 inch, 3/4 inch and the 1/2 circle punches. I used dimensionals on some of them for an added pop! On the back I stamped To/From on the back!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!

A Flower For You!

Here is my card for Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #33. The colors this week are Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Taken with Teal, Certainly Celery, and Whisper White. This was a fun combo!! I really liked it!

For the stamps sets, I used One of a Kind and Priceless. For card stock I used whisper white, taken with teal, and certainly celery. I used Stazon Timber Brown for the chocolate chip. I stamped the flower several times on to the different colors of cs and then cut them out. I used stampin' dimensional to layer them and make it pop! The button is pumpkin pie and from the Earth Elements collection. I tied some linen thread around it and attached it with a mini glue dot. I added a rhinestone from Kaiser Scrapbook to the little flower after the "For you" saying. I added the 5/8's chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon to the top and attached it with a mini glue dot.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
