SCS Color Challenge 546

It's Peggy turn this week for choosing colors and she chose Cucumber Crush, Tangelo Twist, Rich Razzleberry with a dessert of black or white.  Rather unique~

I saw this really fun [old] technique used in blogland last week and had to try it again~ Batik.  I love this look with the crinkled paper inked up.  I will be using this again I'm sure.  Meanwhile, I used my Hero Arts Leaves.  [Yeah, it's getting close to that time of year.]

Okay, your turn.  Pop on over to the SCS Color Challenge CC546 and play along!  We would love for you to join in~

Playing In PTI Project Stamp-A-Faire Part 3

I believe this is the last of the PTI Stamp-a-Fraire Challenges.  I might have missed 1 or 2, but I am thrilled with the way my cards came together! [You can see my Part 1 HERE, and Part 2 HERE]

SAF Pins & Needles; stick pins, sewing on card, stamped sewing on card

I used PTI Butterfly Dreams.  See my stick pins?

I used PTI Tag and Think Big #20.  I used some gold metallic thread for sewing on my card.

I took the easy way with stamping stitches, but it works :).   I used PTI Harvest Berries, along with a sentiment from Signature Greetings.

For this card, you were suppose to use left overs.  Honestly, I rarely throw cards away,
 I make them work.  Therefore, all I had "left over" was the cut outs from the striped cover sheet I used for Betsy's sketch.  I added Circles Scribbles,a couple of leafs from Rosie Posie, and a sentiment from Hello, Friend.

Muse: Christmas Visions 17 & Tag You're It 29

I took some time today to join in the Muse Christmas Visions.  This week we are being inspired by the Guest Designer, Kristie Goulet.

I used stamp sets from Inspired By Stamping; Poinsettias, Holiday Sentiments and French Country.  

Here is Kristie's card;

I also went on to join in the Tag You're It Challenge #29.

I used the [so fun] panda image from MFT Happy Pandas, along with a couple of words from Tim Holtz Friendship Words.

Here is Carol's card:

I had fun! Thanks Challenges~

Playing in PTI Project Stamp-A-Faire Part 2

I couldn't stand it, I had to do some more of the challenges.  I'm having so much fun, why stop now, right?  [See Part 1 HERE]

SAF Mix & Match; 3 different types of patterned papers

While I don't have any pattern paper from PTI, I did use Wonderful Words; Birthday die, along with Turning a New Leaf.

SAF Mixing Colors; use a color combo new to me

 I saw this color combo on Pinterest and really liked it.  Totally out of my comfort, but I sure like my end result!  I used PTI Butterfly Dreams, Polka Dots Basics II, and Hello Friend.

SAF Unconventional Materials; Spend $10 at a hardware store.

I guess I can fess up and say I went "shopping" in my DH garage.  Not having showered, there was no way I was heading to the store.  Plus, I'm sticking with my 2015 motto - use what I have ;)  I came up with duck tape for the diagonal strip, and I used packing tape for my shaker window.  Which, because the sequins are stuck to the sticky side, I guess its not really a shaker card.  We'll go with Faux Shaker ;).  I used PTI Signature Greetings.

I think I have 4 more challenges left.  I guess I'll be back for Part 3~  :)!

Playing in PTI Project Stamp-A-Faire

Well this was a fun Saturday morning!  I joined along with a few of the PTI Challenges for the yearly Stamp-A-Faire.

It started with SAF Bridal - make an all white card wedding card

I enjoyed making a card using Betsy's Sketch.  I used PTI Rosie Posie.

I used PTI Damask Designs, along with Wonderful Words; Birthday.  My thread is subtle, but its there.

And lastly [for this post anyway], SAF Accessories; Felt Necklace;

I used PTI Turning a New Leaf, Harvest Berries, and Dot Spot.  I cut out the shapes in felt, and then stamped the image directly onto the felt.  Worked pretty awesome~ :)

Like I said at the beginning of this post, I had a great time playing along!  We'll see how my time is to finish off these fun challenges~
