Pretty Mambo Blossoms!

This was made for the color challenge today, Pretty Mambo Blossoms! If you haven't guessed the colors were melon mambo, pretty in pink and blush blossom. I also used the fall to layout #75 from Clean and Simple, found here:
http://cleanandsimplestamping.blogspot.com/ FTL75
My card base is textured Melon Mambo and I stamped the dotted background on it in the same color. I stamped two hearts from the Love You Much set in Melon Mambo ink, one on pretty in pink and the other on pink pirouette ( substitute for blush blossom). The Valentine sentiment is from teeny tiny wishes. I added the melon mambo dotted ribbon to finish the layout, by punching a hole in the white piece and tying it through.

Recipe: ( all supplies Stampin'Up! )

Stamps: love you much, dotted BKG, teeny tiny wishes
Card stock: melon mambo, pink pirouette, whisper white, pretty in pink
Ink - melon mambo
Accessories: melon mamba dotted grosgrain ribbon

Please e-mail me if you would like to order any of the supplies to make this card!

Thanks for looking!

I had to make another! I liked this color combination too much! I had also pulled out this set when I was first looking for the challenge, so thought I could do one of each. This one is made with the set Botanical Blooms, from Sale-a-bration last year.
This was one of my favorite Sale-a-bration sets last year. This was done in the same colors and water colored as well.

Accessories - kiwi kiss corduroy button, old olive taffeta ribbon, pink ribbon

Thanks for looking!

Saturday Inspiration Challenge

This card was made for the Inspiration challenge today at Splitcoast Stampers. The inspiration came from the line of Scarves from Echo, the one I chose is here:

I loved the painterly look of this silk scarf. I chose to use a set I haven't used in a while, Fifth Avenue Floral. I love coloring this set ( or painting in this case). I used the cosmos flower image and painted them in melon mamba, pixie pink, pumpkin pie, and real red. I added chrystal effects to the center and added clear glass beads to that for a texture for the center of the flower.

Card recipe: ( all Stampin'Up!)

Stamps - Fifth Avenue Floral, On Your birthday
Card Stock - textured melon mamba, watercolor paper, dusty durango
Ink - black, pumpkin pie, real red, pixie pink, melon mamba, kiwi kiss
Accessories - glass beads, pink satin ribbon, scallop trim border punch

Elephants and Polka Dots!

I made this card for the color challenge today at Splitcoast, CC254. I also used the sketch challenge from a few weeks ago for my sketch layout, SC259. The colors today were bashful blue, soft suede and ruby red. I used close colors but not exactly. ( I went more with what scraps of paper I have on hand!)
I love this elephant paper pieced, and the bashful blue worked great for that. I combined the fun polka dot paper from the Sweet Slumber designer series paper, with the elephant image, and some blue ribbon, and blue scalloped trim. For the back panels I had pulled out some scraps of Bella Rose designer paper ( red patterned paper) and Candy Lane designer paper ( close to cocoa pattern) to frame my main image.

Items used: All Stampin'Up!
Stamps - Happy Heart Day
Paper - Bella Rose, Sweet Slumber, Candy Lane, and bashful blue designer paper, red riding hood, bashful blue, chocolate chip, whisper white card stock
Ink - chocolate chip, ruby red, bashful blue
Accessories - bashful blue grosgrain ribbon, scallop edge punch
