Pretty Pattern 05 and a peek!

Apr 13, 2011 Author: mytime | Filed under: Uncategorized

Hi everyone!

I’m back again.

It is ALMOST the weekend, and I don’t know if its the dreary weather, or what but this week seems to be in slow motion! I am looking forward the the weekend, and crossing my fingers for some nice weather, to brighten the mood around here.

Well today hopefully our Pretty Pattern Sketch 05, and a peek at out digital release (which is tomorrow) will brighten your day, and get you inspired to get creative this weekend.

(P.S. You will also want to see what the team has done with the new images.)

Now here is mine.

True Friend

I used a NEW! Pretty Impressions Digital set called My Little Friend.

Isn’t she co cute? I had a blast coloring her in. I definitely love to color so this new line is perfect for me. My card colors were inspired by my Flower Fusion © pretty patterned paper!!

She is holding her sweet little friend with both hands, hence the sentiment in this set 😀 I stamped the sentiment on the bottom of my layer instead of using patterned paper.

For the “circle” layer, I chose to use the NEW! On Cloud 9 © cut file, with some stickles to add some bling and texture 😀

I also added some dimension!

 I printed my image twice so I could add some POP to select parts of the image! I really love have cards with some interest, and that are not flat.

So my mushroom top, girls arm, catepilar, and flower bloom, are 3D.

Too cute!

Well that is it for me today.

You will definitely want to return tomorrow to see the new release items!

Enough said for now.


HI everyone!

Hope all is well with you all.

Life has been quite the whirlwind here, but I am managing to get everything done that I need to, I think! LOL!

Today I want to share my contribution to the Pretty Palette Challenge 04

Now it’s my turn to share. Granted I’m a few days late, but better late than never right?

I have to say I had the best of intentions, but it turns out my kids and life had intentions of their own, making my ability to finally post, later than I wanted!

So without further delay…my card!

A Happy Life

Our friends are buying their first home the end of the month, and I wanted to send them a card, with a little gift card inside 😀

I loved the colors for this weeks palette, and actually had other ideas, but this is what transpired as I began creating. Funny how that happens huh?

I found that the Fresh Flowers © digital paper was the PERFECT match to the color combo 😀 So I used the flower pattern on my decorative panel layers.

I also used the Pretty Patterns Sketch 04 for this!

I chose to use the label from a Secret Surprise © for my layer. I cut it using the Secret Surprise Label ©.

 The house image from the Just For You ©  set, which I stamped, colored and cut, is for the additional layer to the right.

The butterfly is from Tending The Garden © , the flutter trail is from Fanciful Flourishes © .

My sentiment is from So Sentimental © ! I love it. It is the perfect sentiment for such a happy occasion.

I made my “grass”, and patterned paper along the bottom of my card by using the Puckered Up Patterns © . So simple and fun. I love making my own patterns, and using unexpected stamps for regular things, like “grass”.

So there you have my well intended card.

Come back tomorrow because we have the next Pretty Palette Challenge, and the team and I will be peeking the new digital images, being released on the 15th (Friday)!

See you then 😀
