Color Challenge

This was indeed a challenge for me.  CC 309 Not Quite Navy, Cajun Craze and Daffodil delight.  I also did the try a new technique challenge TLC 311 for a Sliding pop up card.  It was fun to make and I am happy with how it turned out. 

I also used the new Easter Blossoms set from our Occasions Mini catalogue.   The sentiment is from the Hope Happens stamp set.  I haven’t been able to participate in a challenge for a while and had the time today and was happy to get back at it. 

Have a great day.


Stamp camp cards for Feb 21

Some of the girls taking my class would like to see the cards ahead of time.  So here goes.  I used by new Bliss Sale-a-bration set for two of the cards.  This card has the colors of daffodil delight, cherry cobbler, and early espresso.

Marina mist, basic black and very vanilla. 

Here is a punch art card for this class.  I used the owl punch as well as the bird punch for the leaves and branch. 

The last card is found in this post.  Enjoy your sneak peak.

Copics Creation Challenge No. 43 “We’re Cool”

So here we are again, a couple of days have passed since I have stamped, seeing that the flu season has hit (and hit me) I am behind.  I had to come home from work on Wednesday with stomach cramps, sore throat, headaches, feeling dizzy and generally really bad.  I went to bed for the rest of the day, except for when I needed fluids and pain relievers.  I saw the challenge at Copic Creations  We’re Cool, with the challenge to use the cool colors only on a card.  I thought, what better image to use then Whiff of Joy “Cool Oakley”.  He is indeed a cool little guy isn’t he.  My son picked him out when we were at Scrappin Great Deals last week.  I had not had a chance to color him yet and this was it now.  I of course looked to some of my favorite Copic colorers (is that a work)(Suzanne) to see how to shade and highlight him and am quite pleased with how he turned out.   I tried to keep it guy like and not add any ribbon or bows this time.  What do you think of him?

So here are the embellishments:  Stampin around wheel stars punched out with Stampin up small and large star punches and one cut out by hand, on a background of elegant soiree DSP with some Spellbinders nestabilities dies in very vanilla, and marina mist.  The stars are marina mist and wild wasabi.

Next we have glitter brads, even boys need a little glitter don’t you think.  These are from Stampin Up subtle brads. 

Finally here is the little guy all alone.  He is a cutie!  Hope you all like him and it adds some interesting aspect to the Copic challenge.

Leave me some encouragement and comments, as I am learning with the Copics now and am looking to get better at it as I am not a natural artist.  I need lots of help!!!
