Cheater Cheater Pumpkin Eater!

Hello crafty friends! I’m here with a color challenge from Create with Connie and Mary and I’m happy to report that I am feeling MUCH better thanks to some good ol’ antibiotics! CCMC382

Isn’t this a pretty trio?! I may have cheated just a wee bit but honestly, is it that glaring to you?

Always

So there is no Elegant Eggplant in my Bohemian DSP, but I like it I dare say! I also like the chevron paired with the Boho Chic embossing folder. It just gives it a Southwestern look to me for some reason. I added some linen thread to add to the feel and topped off my sentiment with a flower from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack but in this instance we’ll call it a desert rose. πŸ˜‰

And there you have it! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll come play along with this week’s color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary and if you cheat on your paper, I won’t tell a soul! πŸ™‚

Color Repeat?

CCMC364

Hello Friends!

It’s color challenge time at Create with Connie and Mary! Clearly I did not look ahead when I posted last week’s challenge card or I would have chosen a different color scheme! But I did change it up a bit. My last two cards have been ink free so I decided to stamp it up a little. Get it? Stampin’ Up?! HAHAHA! Cheddar moment! πŸ˜€

I used the Butterfly Basics set along with a little flower from Friendly Wishes that I inked with the Stampin’ Write Markers. My thread is actually a strip I unraveled from the Burlap Ribbon. It’s got a bit more umph than the linen thread if that makes sense!

Red Lagoon Cake

Hello Friends!

It’s color challenge time at Create with Connie and Mary! At first I thought it was going to be a REAL challenge but then I remembered my lovely Neutrals Color Collection DSP and it came to the rescue and everything else fell into place. πŸ™‚

Always

I used my new favorite stamp set, Friendly Wishes, for the sentiment. I folded the Dotted Lace Trim in half and tied it in a knot. I stamped using the Flower Shop and Beautiful Bunch sets onto Lost Lagoon card stock with Craft Stampin’ Ink and used the coordinating punches. Was that a run on sentence?

As I type my toddler is havingΒ  a fit and I can’t hear myself think! Ha! This post has to be short for the sake of sanity!! Come play along and get more inspiration at Create with Connie and Mary!

 

You’ve Got This

Guess what time it is… Go on friends “you’ve got this”… YEAH! Sketch challenge time at Create with Connie and Mary!

I fiddled and faddled and came up with this:

Love

My first take had the flower from the “You’ve Got This” set colored in with the coordinating Watermelon Wonder but it just wasn’t working for me. It looked like a card from the 80’s. Just too pastel-ie and weird so I tried it with just black and I liked it! I even liked that it was off center. Maybe because I’m a bit wonky myself? Nah! hahah!

I am LOVING the Neutrals Color Collection DSP! I just like script and there it is in TEN different colors. MUAH! Why yes, I am blowing kisses to paper! πŸ˜‰

Love1

I punched out some circles and placed them under the DSP to balance out the color. I also used the Friendly Wishes set for my sentiment. Love that too! Anywho, I hope you get a chance to play along this week and check out the other designer’s cards here!

Hello there!

It’s color challenge time at Create with Connie and Mary! Above is this week’s trio. The color challenge was just that for me this week, a CHALLENGE! It’s kind of hard with the new catalog switch over because I don’t have any of the coordinating goodies yet!

But I did have the new Boho Chic embossing folder so I used my Stampin’ Write Markers and colored it up. I used the Watercolor Paper and gave it a spritz of alcohol. Friend1

My layout was from Freshly Made Sketches but I goofed and didn’t get it entered. I used the new Friendly Wishes stamp set. Isn’t it sweet?!?! I think it is going to be one of my new favorites!
