Crayon Resist-TTSTV challenge 33

Our tutorial was brought to us by Debbie today. I took a white crayon on white paper and doodled the butterfly trail. Next, I sponged brocade blue on the white and then with a kleenex removed the color from the trail.  I added a touch of glitter to the butterfly and an embossing folder on the brocade layer. I used Garden Art from MPF's a HC.  Head on over to mfpspeedytv to play along and you just might win a stamp set!
Have a great day!.

Piggy Love-DRS Designs Thursday Challenge #57

The challenge over at the DRS Designs Blog today is PIGS.....I love how this turned out.  I was sitting there with several stamps in front of me and this just came to me. to mask the "O" off of the stacked love image and replaced it with a stamped, cut and popped up the pig in puddle (obviously, cutting off the puddle portion!). I used primrose petal for love and the pig was colored in pink pirouette with a primrose nose.  I used the small hearts from the stamp scattered hearts, cut and popped them up too.  Those hearts and the tiny ones on the love letters were painted with red smooch paint. Some twine, a button and the dotted embossing folder.
Have a great day!

I had so much fun making this card.  I LOVE the chair stamped on dp. I used Annalee from Prima's. I used some distressed chipboard and covered it with copper ep and added copper brads. A couple kinds of lace, some flower pretties, a butterfly with some rhinestones.....somebody stop me now!  I was having fun.
Keep commenting and enjoy all the beautiful work by the DT!

TTSTV challenge 31- Paper bag flowers


Happy Friday!  My card was made for TTSTV's challenge 31 over at MFPSPEEDYTV.  It was brought to us by Tammylee. What a great and fun project.  I would definitely make a bunch next time to keep on hand!  Maybe I'll do that this weekend. I am sneaking the sentiment from a set called Love, Love, Love to be released Monday at MFP's a HC. I punched 6 flowers and added cosmic pink smooch spritz...heavily, crinkled, punched a hole and added the brad.  A homemade tag for the sentiment.

Take care,

Pam

DRS Designs Challenge 55-Buttons

My card today was made for DRS Designs blog challenge and this week it is buttons.  I used an old button from a big stash of buttons my cousin's husband sent me.  The double tall pine image and love you more greeting are brand new releases.  The tree is definitely a favorite of all time for me :)
I stamped the image in black and colored the tree in with handsome hunter and a blender pen.  The trunks are crumb cake.  I used a toothbrush to add color to the bg in island indigo.  An embossing folder and some twine.
Head on over and play!

TTSTV challenge 30 by Pat. G.-triple stamping

Good morning and Happy New Year to everyone out there in blogland!  I hope your time with spent with the ones you love!  I thought I'd use some sunny images for our TTSTV over on MFPspeedytv where Pat G. gave us the tutorial for triple stamping.  I used Bring on the Sun and painted it with pearlescent watercolors. A hazel nut piece of white core card stock was embossed and sanded a bit. Layers were 4 x4, 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 and 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 and their mats were 1/8" bigger. I stamped and paper pieced the bees up on dimensional and the sentiment is on a dimensional as well.

Happy New Year!

CTD223 Be the one

The color throw down challenge is kiwi kiss, crumb cake, vanilla and soft suede.  I had fun doing this....it turned out a bit more challenging than I thought it would be originally. I added some glossy accents to the tiny hearts and to a bit of the flower. Also, I discovered that soft suede turns a bit red with a blender pen and the glossy accents! Boo. I used 3 Unity sets_Bloom and simplify, Birdie Inspiration and Explore today and every day.  
Fun challenge.....I am happy with the end result!
