Color Throwdown #463 using SSS Fractile Leaves.

Happy Saturday!
I didn't think I would be getting to a post for the Color Throwdown Challenge #463 this week but thanks to Hurricane Nate....I had some time after prepping the house. 

The colors this week are Orange, White and Kraft.

I used the same SSS Fractile Leaves stamp set  in last weeks throw down but i just couldn't help using it again this week. 


 I used Ranger White Detail Embossing Powder to heat emboss the leaves and sentiment. The sentiment comes from the SSS Ornate Leaves stamp set. 



I used my Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor markers in orange tones for the leaves. I then embellished with some Nuvo Jewel Drops in Orange Marmalade.

Thanks for stopping by and be safe if in the path of Huricane Nate!

Color Throwdow Challenge #462 using SSS Fractile Leaves

Happy Thursday! 

Today’s post is for the Color Throwdown #462. 
The colors this week are Rust, Green, Orange and Blue. 


I used my Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors for the background and the images. 

I wanted a messy watercolor background to be able to show off these 
Simon Says Stamp Fractile Leaves. It sort of reminds me like the leaves fell into a river. 

I hear embossed the leaves and sentiment with Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder. 

The Autumn Blessings sentiment comes from the SSS Ornate Leaves stamp set. 

I used the same embossing powder to make a matte to put the watercolor piece onto. 

Thank you so much for coming by and I’ll see you next time!

Color Throwdown #461 featuring Crazy Dogs stamp set


Hey All,
It has been a while since my last post and I apologize. My MacBook Pro is causing me to go crazy cause the screen is not working. I am using a Windows laptop till I can try to fix it and I am just not used to it.
I do tech support for cellphones as my day job and have patience all day. When it comes to me and a computer....I have none!

Anywho... here is my submission for this weeks Color Throwdown #461.
The colors this week were Purple, Green, Yellow and Orange. Those colors scream Halloween to me.



I used a Simon Says Stamp Diamond Circles Stencil and ink blened with Distress Inks, I used Carved Pumpkin , Wilted Violet, Mustard Seed and Lucky Clover.

All of the Elements and Sentiment are from the Stampers Anonymous Crazy Dogs, Crazy Things and Crazy Talk Stamp Sets. I colored all the images with the same Distress Ink Color plus Black Soot.

Thank you so much for coming by and see you next time!!

MFT Chinese Takeout and Good Fortune Birthday Card



Welcome back!

I can now show this birthday card I made for my awesome disinter in laws birthday!

Oh man MFT just made such a great release when came out with this set and the Sushi date one back in March.
I even won a $25 voucher from MFT as part of the release  and of course I got those sets and dies.

I did not come up with this design but I was inspired by one of the inspiration cards on their site made by Debbie Olsen.
I just loved the layout she chose with the blue background. 



I used Distress Ink  in Tumbled Glass and blended onto some Bristol Smooth Cardstock.

I used Antique Linen and Tea Dye for the fortune cookies and
Hickory Smoke for the handle of the box. I also used Antique Linen for the chopsticks.

I stamped the Pagoda and Enjoy with Memento Dew Drop Ink in Lady bug form the Good Fortune stamp set. I  then heat embossed with clear embossing powder to make them shiny.

I used some patten paper in my stash as the background and popped onto a card base made from some Neenah 120lb card stock.




I used the Sushi Date stamp set for the sentiment and the soy sauce bottle which i colored using Spectrum Noir markers.

I stamped the same pagoda onto the envelope in the Lady Bug ink.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

MFT Card Challenge Sketch #345 using Friends Forever


Welcome Back!

I am doing another week in the My Favorite Things Card Challenge #345

It was a fun sketch and couldn't not participate in it. 

Sketch Challenge 345 #mftstamps

When I saw the sketch I knew I had to do a shaker card. 


I used some pattern paper in my stash for that strip on the left. I then used some green card stock and a houndstooth embossing folder to create the background. 

The shaker is filled with random sequins and chunky glitter. 

I used my SSS stitched circle dies to create the bit to make a frame for the shaker winder. 

I used Distress Oxide Ink to color in the bear from the MFT Forever stamp set and then fussy cut it out. 

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and is white embossed onto some black card stock. 

Thank you so much for coming by to check out my submission. 

I hope to see you next week!

MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge using Otterly Love You Stamp and Die Set


Hello Again!

I have a new Challenge Today. 
I love My Favorite Things Stamps and Dies and decided to try my hand at their card sketch challenge. 


Here is the Sketch for this Weeks Challenge #344

Sketch Challenge 344 #mftstamps
I made the banner style shape by cutting on my trimmer and using the stich die in the MFT Die-namics Blueprints 13 set.  

I ink blended Salty Ocean and Broken China Oxide Inks and then used a Distress Sprayer to add the water for a ocean like background. I then sprayed some Glimmer Mist on it to add some sparkle. 


The images and sentiment come from the MFT Otterly Love You Stamp and Die set.


 I colored them with Spectrum Noir Markers.  The sentiment was stamped onto some random pattern paper I had and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. 

After everything was assembled I used some glossy accents on the otter noses and to make some bubbles for the fish. 

Thank you for coming by and I will see you next time!
