I’ve got a question for you. Do you remember that song from the Bangles in the 80’s called Hazy Shade of Winter? There is a reason I ask (and you can hear it here!)… The song starts out saying “Time time time see what has become of me”. This is relevant. I have been so busy and where has my crafting time gone?! I JUST NOW got to play with my Designer Vellum Stack from Sale-A-Bration!
But play I did! I whipped up some cute note cards using the Crazy about You set.
I colored the back side of the vellum with matching Stampin’ Write Markers. These 3×3 lovelies let me play with all the different vellum sheets at once. 🙂 Can you guess which one is my favorite? Think pink ink… ha!
Hey Hey! It’s that time again… SKETCH CHALLENGE at Create With Connie and Mary. Yeah! It is a fun one this week. You can twist it, turn it, flip it; anything goes! Come play along!! Here is my take:
I needed some Melon Mambo in my life. There was a time in the distant past where I would of never paired pink and orange but those days are over. I really think they compliment each other without fighting for attention!
See that beautiful butterfly?! I am going to miss it dearly. If I had a top 10 list of things I am going to miss most the Beautiful Wings Embosslits would be on there. I have used that thing too many times to count!
Did you notice my arch nemesis Soft Sky?! But ya know what, I didn’t fight him. I went with the flow. We’re not chummy by any means but at least it wasn’t a throw down this time! 🙂
I got a little “stampy” with this one… Ok, I got a LOT stampy! I used three different sets, Really Good Greetings, Butterfly Basics, and Beautiful Bunch. When I went to stamp my fern I accidentally stamped it into the Blackberry Bliss and without realizing it Stamped it into the Smoky Slate. The picture doesn’t show it too well but I got a multicolored fern that looks pretty cool. I just hope I didn’t forever ruin the ink pad!
I am writing with a wee bit of a sunburn but I LOVE it! This week is another fun sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary. I gravitated towards Blackberry Bliss this time. Here is my take on the sketch:
My sentiment is from the Petite Pairs set. Most of the card stock I used on this card is from my scrap pile, including the punched flower and top square on the left. I tell you, I save EVERYTHING! It was already embossed from prior projects and I just put the pieces together.
Yibida Yibida, That’s all folks! Thanks for stopping by. Get your craft on and play this week’s challenge here!
It’s another color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! I had fun with these colors. They are both strong and make quite a punch so I used them “lightly”. I started out in an entirely different direction with a Bermuda Bay base and Tangelo Twist mat but I tell you it was too much visually so I went the opposite route and I’m glad that I did.
I can’t help but think of that Iggy Azalea song “I’m So Fancy… can’t you taste this gold?” song when I look at this card! Ha! I think the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder gives it a nice texture. The sentiment is layered on the Gold Foil Sheet and then popped up with dimensionals to give it some… well… dimension. 😉
Hope you’ll come and play this week’s challenge with us! Just click here to play! And if I don’t get a chance to post again before this weekend, Happy Mother’s Day! Even to the mamas of fur babies, they count too! ❤
