Colorful Season Thinking of You


 I had to get this set- the chair die is just so cool- I could think of so many things to do with it.  I just think how cool would it be sitting on these chairs drinking some lemonade with a friend?  But I realized there was no place to set the glasses. So I cut another chair turned it upside down and cut off the top section to make a matching table and now it feels perfect.  Love the blossoms and the wooden deck - wood textures DSP.  Used the old scallop punch to make subtle clouds in the sky behind. to make a beautiful day. The little glass with straw is from the same Colorful Seasons set-
Diecut with the matching Seasonal Layers Thinlits

3 variation of Lovely Inside & Out


Saturdays are spent doing laundry, cleaning and baking and while things are washing and baking, I sneak away in little bits of time to play with my stuff.  I'm holding a Stampin' Up party and wanted to make something using the Lovely Inside & Out set.  I love the Lemon Lime Twist and Melon Mambo together so I started with this little piece below using Snow falling EF and Banners for you for the sentiment.  Bent the rubber a bit to fit in the banner which was fine and used stitched shaped framelits to cut a circle to fit behind to show a tiny bit of the lemon lime twist.
 This is the second variation using the left over from the first card and then layering it on a whisper white circle over the Lemon Lime twist embossed with Sparkle EF.  It looked a bit flat so I used 2 way glue to add dazzling diamond glitter and it really made it pop. 
 But I think this is my favorite out of the batch. base is whisper white with a layer of Melon Mambo with Loverly Words cutout.  I took a circle die slightly larger to cut out a circle to show the word and embossed it with sparkle EF too.  I then decided to put a dazzling diamond glimmer paper behind it which really makes it sparkle.  Add a little banner with words and it is done.  Very clean.  I guess you can stamp " for your birthday" or something on the inside for any occasion.

You've Got this Pretty Label



 Last week's color challenge was for Sweet sugarplum, wild wasabi and daffodil delight.  I was playing with that and the sketch challenge and I got to playing with the Label me Pretty set for the little element  and this kind of organically evolved into this card.   Base is Wild Wasabi with Daffodil embossed with Woodland embossing folder.  The Whisper white panel was stamped with You've Got This set  with Sweet Sugarplum stamped off.  It was colored in with the aqua painter filled with alcohol using the same colors.  But even stamped off it was too bright and seemed to clash with the label so I cut
a piece of vellum to cover it to soften the color even more and it really helped.  I just wanted to Label to really pop.  The flowers and label was colored using the same technique with the alcohol filled Aqua painter with the same colors. - I cut a piece of Sweet Sugarplum punched and cut across to split it to layer it behind the white piece and raised it up with the dimensionals to pop it up more.
