CTD220....tempting turquoise, cherry cobbler, lucky limeade

My friend Kim encouraged me to play in the color throw down challenge blog's (CTD220) colors for this week.  Tempting turquoise, lucky limeade (substituted pear pizzazz...LL is the one color I don't own) and cherry cobbler.  I had to use extra large photo so that you could see the musical score on the poinsettia.  I used MFPaHC Poinsettia Blooms and Just a note to create my card.  I heated the seam binding up but it looks better IRL.

Have a great weekend!

DRS Thursday Challenge 51-Snow Fun

Okay, so my snow doesn't show up very well!  I am lucky that I am able to post this though! So this is going to be quick!  I stamped my sweet reindeer, colored, smooched his nose and collar, sparkly fluff on his tail and antlers. Next, using post it notes I masked for some snow drifts and sponged some black on to define them.  Stamped the sentiment in black and sprayed the entire thing with white shimmery smooch spray. Head on over to DRS Designs blog and play and you just might win!

Today I showcased my amaryllis with Annalee dp from Prima, matted it with black and used a white card base.  The pot was watercolored with pearlescent watercolors and the amaryllis was colored with gumball green, pirouette pink and with a blender pen, I highlighted with melon mambo.  The sentiment was stamped in black.  some lace, embroidery thread, a pearl brad and 5 rhinestones and we'll call it good!  Inside, the sentiment reads, "You make the day sparkle".  Love it!

Can you believe it is Christmas time again???  I have felt deprived from my stamping room, so sitting down to create this gave me great joy.  It was quick and I am super happy how it turned out. I stamped the image in noir black, masked the sun, swiped on concord crush with a kleenex, swiped on baja breeze for the water and then using a glue pen, added some dots of glue here and there on the buildings and used glitter....so happy how it photographed....I think it looks like lights on the buildings.  I used so saffron to color in the moon. Have a great day and head over to MFPaHC and check out all the goodies!

I Love You Bubble Wrap

Today I made this card for TTSTV #23 by Debbie Moran today.  Our tutorial is bubble wrap.  I was quite surprised to find that I owned all the materials to make a card.  I don't have a lot of acrylic paint but was happy with how this came out.  I used the following colors of paints in this order; terra cotta, modern red and painterly pink followed by white on the bubble wrapped brayer.  Next I stamped my images from MFP's a HC set Love Remains and painted in the leaves with lettuce...lastly, I touched the leaves some with modern red.  I ended up doing the sentiment panel the say way minus the bubble wrap and it is up on dimensionals.  A little ribbon tab and 3 rhinestones.  Give this tutorial a try.  It yields some really lovely results.  Thanks to Debbie for bringing it to us! Head on over to MFPspeedyTV and click on tutorial time.  Happy creating!

Take care,

Pam

DRS Designs Thursday Challenge Candles

I had fun with this!!!!  When I saw candles was the challenge, this is immediately what I thought of.  Stamping on candles....so I did!
I used Thanksgiving Blessings 637E from DRS Designs.  I had inked the stamp.  It is actually a trio and I only wanted two.  Ink used:  more mustard, old olive, light gray, ridinghood red, peach pizazz, yellow.
Easy peasy.  Stamp your image on tissue paper, color, place on your candle where you want it and cover tightly with wax paper...then using your heat gun, set it....so cool.  Making some gift baskets.
Come on over to DRS Designs blog to play along and win!!!

TTSTV challenge 22-Tri-shutter fold card

My card today was made for TTSTV's 22nd challenge which can be found here.  The tri-shutter fold tutorial by Lois Bak.  Lois is the Queen of these fancy folds....me, not so much.  I actually think it turned out super cute in the photo, but I had serious issues in cutting correctly:)  Practice..that's what I need!
I used MFP's a HC Christmas Selections and Holly Jolly greetings.  Head on over to Speedytv to play!
