A color challenge

hearts a flutter My heart’s a flutter

The Blogger’s Challenge this week is a color challenge-Pumpkin Pie (YUMMY! Get’s me thinking of the real thing next week), Brocade Blue, Old Olive and Choc. Chip.

These are NOT my usual colors, so it was definitely a challenge for me. I kept thinking BOY card, but didn’t feel like going all masculine with it.

While going through my gigantic paper assortment, I came across my much neglected Mellow Collection by Basic Grey. YEAH!!! Flowers with those colors.

DING, DING, DING, DING!!!! People we have a winner.

So I decided I would go all out of my “element” (yes I really can do different style’s :D), and get all distressy with it. Tim Holtz distress inks to the rescue! It felt good to try something different  for a change of pace. Especially since I am SO into the Christmas mood-which you will see over the next few days.

The images are by Lizzie Anne-the L’amour set (sentiment) and Heart to Heart—>HERE.

The heart is stamped on patterned paper with versamark, and embossed with UTEE. Then cut out, and pieced over stamped image.

I added some piercing, and copper brads! I also ran by copper pad along the edges.

I must say I {heart} this card.

So that’s it for now.

I am off to prep my template for tomorrow’s Saturday  Sketch, and PRAYING I make a stepped up sample. Right now my sample is way SIMPLE. Maybe even too simple-but for mass production it would be considered a fabulous sample-but I want to show you that it can be all FANCY SCHMANCY too!

Oh and wait till you see my Sunday post!! I’m way happy with it.

Thanks for looking 😀

OK till tomorrow!

OK Maybe not green, but river rock! Stamps are from the Christmas Card set. Keep reading.

 I have a quickie post this morning, as I am preparing for making/posting my Blogger’s Challenge card later today (got some family stuff to do first), then photographing my creations with my new stamps from A Chemisrty With Paper-let me tell you, you won’t be disappointed. There is a cool gift giving idea included for you too!

Lastly I have my Saturday sketch to get done for tomorrow as well. You all seemed to LOVE a template, so I yet another one this week-only this is WAY super simple 😀 I think you are going to love it!

So in the meantime, I figured I share 3 cards with you, using Green Grass stamps, 2 Christmas 1 non Christmas, that have been posted over on Tammy’s blog.

Did you know that the Christmas sets are on SALE till the end of the month AND you can now buy them at Addicted to Rubber !!!

OK so here they are. Im not going into full details, as that can be found on Tammy’s blog-but I will certainly answer any questions 😀

Neapolitan Christmas Greeting

Love the colors in the one! Very easy card to mass produce! You could even use a spectrum pad.

Just wanted a rich, simple congrats on engagement card. Mission accomplished.
