Color Challenge!

Kristina once again picked some fabulous colors. What a pick color combination for fall. Of course today in Colorado you wouldn't know it was fall. It is almost 70! It's hard to think Thanksgiving when it feels like summer. Oh well, it is going to get cold tonight. The colors this week were, Close to Cocoa, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron and Whisper White. I tried to think what set had some mums but Upsy Daisy was as close as it gets! I saw this technique on someone else's blog. I'm sorry I forgot who to give credit too! What you do is ink your stamp with the lighter color and then ink a sponge dauber with the darker color and dab it on the stamp. I have used this technique with a lot of color combos. My fav is Old Olive and Night of Navy for a great guy card. Here is my card. The colors are more defined in the real card or maybe I need to juice up my Pumpkin pie pad. I stamped So Saffron as the base and then added Pumpkin pie on top. Thanks again Kristina. Enjoy.

Littlest Star Wars Scarers!!

Can you believe 2 posts in 1 night? I know, don't fall over. I meant to post this on Halloween but the time just escaped me!! I just loved the card that I made for family. I got the cuttlebug spiderweb embossing plate. I just love it!!! I hope you can see it in the picture. It was so darn cute. I had to add the kiddos too. Zach was so adorable as Yoda! Enjoy.

I'm back!

Gosh, I can't believe that it has been so long since I posted. Where does the time go? I had to make some cards that I was donating for our church's silent auction and I was a total slacker about getting them done! Don't wait until the last minute to make 50 cards that have a lot of detail!!! I'm back and ready for another color challenge. I love the soothing colors this week. The challenge colors were: Sahara Sand, Old Olive, Certainly Celery and Whisper White. I didn't even have to cut much b/c I had so much left over from my stamp-a-stack this past weekend too. What a bonus. I used some of the rub-ons that I had waiting to be used. The flower is a die-cut flower. I always have a hard time putting those to good use. I thought it would go great with the Eastern Elegance rub-on. Since the color palate was so soothing, I thought I'd go for a simple card. Thanks for stopping by. The christmas cards were all samples from my class this past weekend. I just adore the Deer Friends stamp set! Enjoy.
