PPA142 - Color with Stippled Blossoms

The Pals Paper Arts is having a color challenge and has such pretty inspirations by the Design Team and so I wanted to give it a try, PPA142. Click here if you would like to join the fun. Most importantly have fun with it.
Here is mine below: 
Wanted to create another card with this gorgeous stamp set: Stippled Blossoms and inked it up with Elegant Eggplant. Than inked up Lucky Limeade for the leaves. Added some basic pearls in the center. For paper, I pulled out the DSP (In-color 2011-2013). For the sentiment, I used the stamp set: Fabulous Phrases and used the Modern Label and Word Window Punch.

Here is a close up of the flower so hopefully you can see the basic pearls better, but the white is not showing up, but in person it's very white. Ribbon is the new 1 1/4" Stitched Ribbon. Hope you enjoy and have fun creating!!!

FMS 51 - Button Buddies & Punches

Design Team member Cindy Hall over at Freshly Made Sketches is the hostess for the week who created this fun sketch to play with, FMS#51. If you would like to join the fun, you can click here to go directly to the challenge.
Here is mine below:
Loving this paper and color combination as you can see from previous posts but bare with me. I promise my next card will be totally different including the color combo and paper.
Once again, Festival of Prints is the DSP along with Cherry Cobbler, Black, Crumb Cake, Old Olive, and Whisper White. The sentiment comes from the set: Watercolor Trio (now retired). Adorning Accents Edgelits with matching embossing folder were used to create the scallop border on the side.

Punches are so fun and made this card fun to do. I used the Blossom punch in Old Olive as my base for the flower along with the stamp set: Button Buddies.  

To create the flower dimensionaI, I stamped it three times using Cherry Cobbler and used my little scissors on 2 of them. The 1 3/4" Scallop Punch was used to start this flower. Afterwards, I layered the 3 on top of one another using Stampin Dimensionals. Added a button on top to finish it off. Hope you enjoy and have fun creating!!

Mojo Monday 257 - Lacy & Lovely Again

Another week at Mojo Monday, MOJO257. This week designed by the talented Julee Tilman herself. Since it's the beggining of the month, it's contest week where you have a chance to win some Verse Stamps up to 7 winners max. Click here to go directly to the challenge.

Most importantly, have fun with the sketch. I was glad myself to work on a card and with this beautiful sketch. Here is mine below:  
Yes, I had to create another card with this stamp set: Lacy & Lovely along with the DSP: Festival of Prints but added some new elements to this one.

Here is one of the newest Sizzlits Delicate Doilies with Black cardstock as my base circle. Used the 2 1/2" circle, 1 3/4" circle, and 1" circle punches for the focal point. Behind that I used Basic Gray cardstock along with DSP stack from the neutrals collection.

Not to forget, also used some Crumb Cake with the stripes embossing folder on this card as well.

Used the new Finishing Touches Edgelits in Whisper White and love the look of this border contrast.

Stampin Dimensionals always adds a nice touch and were used under two layers of circles to pop it up. Also, some Basic Pearls were added as final touches. Hope you enjoy and have fun creating!!

Mojo Monday 256 - Lacy & Lovely with Festive Prints

Another week at Mojo Monday, MOJO256, with another sketch designed by Julee Tilman. For me, it's another Sunday. I won't tell you how long this took, but I will say I almost gave up completely on it since I could not decide on which papers and combination worked best, than it was a decision on stamp set and so on, but finally finished it. 

This will be a short post since I've been on my computer most of the day fixing it and running out of time, but wanted to get this card posted. If you would like to join the fun click here to go directly to the challenge. It's a super cute sketch. Here is mine below:

Loving this DSP called: Festival of many choices and not just for Christmas!! Used the embossing folder: Stripes with Crumb Cake cardstock. My focus was trying to mantain a 2 tone look for this card, Black and Cherry Cobbler. Used the Designer Frames embossing Folder to give me another texture for the oval.

Added Basic Rhinestones on each corner and flower from the stamp set: Lacy & Lovely. Sentiment also comes from this terrific set. Card Measures 5 x 5 square. Not to forget, stampin dimensionals were used under the 1 inch circle. Hope you enjoy and have fun creating!!
