Flower and Stripes

I am really happy with how this card turned out. Let me know what you think.
The background is chalked with rose red make sure you seal it, or it will rub off. Then I used SU-wonder color crayons to color the flower and stamped the outline in basic gray. The phrase and wonderful punches are also from SU. Have a great day.

Challenge #38

I used Winter woodland to cut out the snowmen.
I think the ribbons bring it to life just a bit more. The trees are stamped using SU-Flaky Friends. and the snowflakes are from SU-Serene Snowflakes

You're on my mind

I messing around with my chalks one day, and made this really great background. I just wasn't sure what to do with it. So guess where it went? yep- the magic unfinished box.
I used....SU-Upsy Daisy, and stampin' pastels. Rose red paper, cut with cake basics in two different sizes. Then I put some Su-iridescent ice on the butterflies. I knew I liked the rose red, so I had to check my color coach to see what was recomended - well baja breeze won!!! I added some sticky diamonds, and I think it turned out beautiful Let me know what you think! See you tomorrow!

Tom Turkey SC301

I know it doesn't seem like Turkey Day should be here already... but it is tomorrow. I hope you all have your birds and pies ready. Pumpkin is my favorite-so I made a few of those to share.
This turkey was so fun to color. My son asked me how come I didn't color him brown and gray like real turkeys. I said because this is my turkey- and he has personality. I use my copics to add color. I also used some SU-glass beads. The turkey image is from High Hopes stamps. Great image don't you think? I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow. Be thankful for the little things. I know I am blessed with my wonderful kids. I love them so much and am grateful everyday, that I got such wonderful treasures. God bless

Acetate and Tissue Tutorial

Humming Bird Cake

This is the cake I made for my bestests friends Birthday!! She love hummingbirds, and the color purple. My favorite color is turquoise- so I had to incorporate both of them.

I used the "Tink and Friends" to cut out the flowers. The flourishes around the cake are cut from "elegant cakes" The hummingbird is a cookie.

here is the inside, turquoise, purple, and brown for the layers- not a very clear picture. But I did like how the inside colors matched the outside. And it tasted great :)!!!

Alone Time

Yesterday was my very best friends birthday. We had a wonderful party to celebrate! (will post cake tomorrow) She has been having some tough times lately- so I hope this girl takes her away to a special place, if only for a moment. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
I used the polished stone technique. There is a great tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers for that one. The girl is from Sugar Nellie I used copics to color her in, and some flowers to decorate her up. My girlfriend loves to read, not like me- I get too bored. So when I saw this stamp I had to get it to make her a card! Thanks for joining me today. Have a great day!

Glittering Dasher

I am pretty excited ... I get to meet with my girls tonight. It is Stampin' Up! club time. This is the card we are going to make. I was racking my brain this month. I wanted something so cool. Yet pretty simple. Since the class is on acetate & tissue technique I did a lot of the prep work before the party. (you ladies better appreciate it LOL)

I have also made a tutorial here for you to watch. Hope you enjoy your day today. And get at least one fun thing. Take Care!! Photobucket

Scarecrow boy SC297

Bring on Autum!!!! I made him to enter over at Doodle Dragon Studio Challenge This is the first time I have entered over there-so wish me luck, and play along.
"Scarecrowboy" Another image by Dustin Pike. Maybe he is one of my favorites, because he is from Utah. . I used some paper that I got years ago, but was waiting for the "perfect" time to use it. I guess this is as close as it gets. The image is colored with copics. I put some SU crystal effects on the crows to make them shiny. Thanks for stopping by today! Hope your day is creative!!

Pumpkin Bear SC302

He was suppose to be done and posted before Halloween. Well he was colored-then I put him in my "I'll finish later box". Does anybody else have one of those. Not quit feeling the full effect, so it goes in a box until an idea slaps you upside the head. :0) I pulled out my box- honestly because it was too full to shove anything else into. He's still kinda fally- hope you enjoy, he makes me smile.
Stampin' Up! garden green, and some retired spooky paper. Stampin' Up!-teeny tiny wishes Dustin Pike-pumpkin bear 10-24-10 Photobucket

Pumpkin Patch Pete SC283

I was feeling pretty inspired by fall-when I colored this guy. I love to just color images. Then sometimes I go to Splitcoast Stampers to put them together- with their sketch challenges.

The colors and the little scarecrow just make me so darn happy.
Hope you have a great day. Thanks for stopping by my little world.
The card stock and paper is from Stampin' Up! night of navy, garden green, more mustard, & baja breeze.
I used Copics to color the image. The stamp is from High Hopes
