Pretty Palette 02

Mar 27, 2011 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards, My Time Made Easy, Pretty Palette Challenge

UGH! Sorry-this was suppose to post on Sunday! I didn’t even realize it never did!

Hi everyone!

I’m back again for another post!

Can you believe it?! LOL! I’ve been posting a few times a week since we began the new My Time Made Easy ™ LLC Blog!

I have to say I’m so enjoying all this extra inspiration to share and post. I missed it. Granted, I’m running like CRAZY, but it feels good to share more often.

OK here is the next challenge.

Pretty Palette Challenge: MTMEPPC02

CLICK HERE for details and to enter your own creation!

I really loved the colors on this, so I decided to dust off an “old” set and make it fresh and new!

Here is my take which I named  The Cafe

I used the A Lil’ Cafe © 30 Images set  to make this card., which was designed  to look like the outside of a Cafe (obviously! LOL!).

The brick pattern is stamped in a pale tea dye ink along the edges. I sponged on some tea ink to make it look like the outside of an aging painted brick cafe.

There is a lot of dimension on this one, as you can see.

My coffee cup, and chair seat are stamped, colored and cut, then raised with dimensionals.

I love the windows! They are so pretty!!

I stamped the windows,  adding the shutters, and the “curtain” trim, colored and cut them out. I also added the flowers (they are in the set) so they appear like they are growing out of the window boxes, which were stamped on blue cardstock, in a brown ink. They were added using dimensionals.

I stamped on the sign images, and added the Cafe sentiment to the center.

After everything was stamped I used my ruler, and black drawing pen to create my own sidewalk, adding grass with my marker. I also added some flowers to the sidewalk too.

I took the All Steamed Up © digital paper, and changed the pink, to blue, to match my creation. I love that! It was the perfect additon to this!

Thank you to Lisa for choosing such a fun Pretty Palette!

I hope you all can give it a try too!

I’ll be back on Thursday, as it the first day of peeks for the April 1st Release, and the next Pretty Pattern Challenge!

See you then!

Now let me share my take on the colors 😀

Please join us for dinner

I LOVE how this gift box turned out 😀

I use the In Suspense template to create a “dinner” invitation gift. We have some friends we want to invite over, and I thought a little gift box of homemade raspberry cookies (not cooked yet-sorry!) would be a nice way to invite them over!

For the template itself, I actually cut off the “door hanger” portion. leaving a bit of a top tab, and folded if in half, forward, for a clean and finished look.

I strung my ribbon through the tab closure slot, and added my tag that reads”Please join us”. That sentiment is from the A Spot of Tea set. I omitted the “for tea” part 😀 I love the look of this project.

I had really wanted to use the utensil image from the Fancy a Cuppa? set, to create my own dinner “place setting”, since we released it but had ran out of time to bring my idea into fruition. I love being able to go back and use older products 😀

For the place setting I used the Killer Curves: Fanciful Frames border for the design on my virtual “plate”. I stamped it in green and colored it in. I added some flowers to the border, using the mini flower and “berry” image from the Singing Silhouetteset. I added more color to my plate, using my Copic marker.

I then stamped, colored and cut out my utensils from the Fancy a Cuppa? set, and added them with dimensionals. Don’t they appear to be set in my plate ?! I love that!

The red and green layer are meant to serve as my placemat. Corners are stamped with the corner flourish from the Killer Curves: Fanciful Frames set, in white. A simple detail.

OK I have to admit, I used white instead of ivory :C I totally forgot the color was IVORY! LOL!  But, in my opinion, it was a neutral, so it was OK to switch it out! LOL! I also added a contrasting darker green. It’s all about getting started and running with it.
