SCS Color Challenge - CC515

It's SCS Color Challenge time.  This week Karen chose Real Red, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso with a dessert of double - at least 2 punches each, on 2 separate cards.

One thing I like about a set of cards is the same color combo, not necessarily the same card.  [I very rarely make duplicate cards.]  This challenge is fun - eventually, I will make 2 more cards [in the color combo] and have a Hostess gift.  Meanwhile, I used die cuts [I hope that works since I am the sample maker ;)] - My Favorite Things Fishtails and the Hello from Echo Park.  I also used the Retro Sketch #150.  My right card, I used STAMPlorations sentiment from, along with Heartfelt Creations Striped Sun Kissed Fleur flower and leaves.  The frame is Simon Says Stitched Rectangles.

Now, I know this color combo is going to be a success - We love seeing what you make, so, upload your cards over at SCS Color Challenge.

STAMPlorations Spotlight Week - Day 1

We are having a super fun Spotlight Week with a little enabling hopping AND a super fabulous prize!  I will be showing my cards this week.  It will be up to you to pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for the hop list and do the commenting for that prize! :)

Today we are spotlighting The Bee's Knees; Houses.

I adore these fun houses!  So whimsical.  As far as my card goes, I can not take the credit for the coloring.  While I was visiting with [my new friend] Rebecca, [Paper Primrose] I took this set with me.  Rebecca said "Oh I have an idea already with these cute houses" - I handed her the set and said have fun.  Well, she did! She then handed me the finished, colored houses [fussy cut no less] and said go create.  :)  You see the finished effect.  So colorful [right up my alley Rebecca- thanks!] and awesome!  I also used the new STAMPloration Cloud Stencil.

For much more amazing samples using this set, pop on over to STAMPlorations Blog for the hop.  Don't forget to comment :), and have fun!  By the way our Guest Designer.... I am swooning!

Just Us Girls #277 - Photo Inspiration

Fun photo, isn't it? All about that Heart Day coming up :).

I used one of the new stencils that STAMPlorations is now selling, Hearts All Over.  I have to say, this was an easy stencil to use -- not too thin, and a little bigger then 4.25 x 5.50.  Makes it easy to tape down and color it. I did a semi ombre effect with pink and red.  The bg chevrons are from Inspired By Stamping, Background Basics 2.  I layered my heart 3 times for depth and sponged around it too.  I am also entering this into the CAS on Sunday Challenge; stencil, and Inkspirational Challenge; ombre.

I look forward to seeing how the photo inspired you!  Pop on over to JUGS, check out the Team samples, and then play along!  We love our players :)

Dazzling Divas #59

It's time again for a Dazzling Diva Challenge #59 ~ Music

Is this photo fabulous or what! Be still my heart!

I cut out the hearts using my Silhouette and Scarlett Red Craft Metal Sheet.  [Yes, the metal sheets cut like butter!] and I used a Black Diamond Craft Metal Sheet with some letter dies for my HVD sentiment.  I also used a music embossing folder for some added texture.

Remember, metal sheets are not required to play, but the challenge is music.  Come on over and see the other Designer's samples, and then join in the challenge~  there is a prize...
