CCEE1413 Recipe

Joanne has challenged us to follow a recipe:
Flowers + Pearls + Heat Embossing + Dry Embossing + Person Image

Here's what I did:

I think the card is pretty much self explanatory.  I added some Sizzix leaves to give a grounding to the flowers, that were all punched.

This is my favorite face image - A Gibson Girl stamp.  I love to use it with funny sayings because it seems so beautiful and serene that a goofy sentiment is in direct opposition to it!!

A Tuesday Surprise

I seldom post on the day of the Color Challenge on SCS, but was pleased with my results, and decided to share.  This card uses three of the colors requested (guava, green, black), and a lot of die cuts, a new stencil (which I love!), and a big nestie as a bg.  I hope you like it too.

CCEE1412 Spring or Autumn Scene

Here's Joanne's challenge:

Spring has Sprung here in the U.S.  Frances, in Australia, is facing Autumn.  One thing these two seasons share are bright blue skies and lots of color in nature.  Make a card/project with a spring or autumn scene including blue skies.  (She added...extra points if it's a birthday card....her sister's birthday is today!)

Here's mine:

Bright colors of orange and blue, skies with puffy clouds, and a kite for Spring.

I added a little faux stitching and twine, and some piercing, in Joanne's honor.  Somehow I forgot the birthday aspect, so no extra points for me!!

Please join us, this week and every week, for some fun.  Be sure to add CCEE1412 to your keyword if uploading to SCS, and link your card or project HERE.

CCEE1411 Snacks

Our hostess, Joanne, says today is Popcorn Lover's Day.  Popcorn is her favorite snack. (Mine too!) Tomorrow, March 14th, is Potato Chip Day, another popular snack.  Her challenge to us today is to make a card with some kind of a snack connection.

Obviously, I had to go with Popcorn.

 I used the SU set, Sweet Treats, for my card. I  colored and cut out the bag and popcorn, popping them up (of course!).  The card is yellow, and has been punched with the Curve Punch.

This card will go to my grandson Jake, who makes popcorn every time he comes to visit!!

Please join us this week, and every week, making sure to link  your card HERE, and adding CCEE1411 to your keyword if you upload to SCS.

CCEE 1410 Art

Our hostess for the month of March is Joanne.  Here is her challenge to us:

Michaelangelo's birthday was March 6, 1475.  Let's honor this wonderful artist with our cards this week.  Either have a sentiment that refers to ART in some way or have an image that shows an artistic tool (ex. paintbrush, pen, artist palette).  Let's get our artsy vibes flowing.

Here's mine:

Everything here is Italian - the script, the book pages, the stamp.  Oh wait.the pen and glasses are not....or maybe they are!

I used parchment paper, and predominantly Sepia ink.  The pen nib is gold, and the barrel of the pen an old-looking green.  I had the stamp just begging to be used with a blob of ink, and the glasses have shiny frames.  I hope you like it.  I had such fun putting it together.
