It’s funny, some weeks I know exactly what I want to do with our colour combos and other weeks I am totally stumped! Happily, this is one of those weeks that I knew exactly which stamp set to grab and what I wanted to do. And not only that, my card came out exactly how I had envisioned it in my head. Boy I love it when that happens!

I stamped the floral image onto Whisper White, with Versamark, before embossing it in gold and then I took out my Stampin’ Markers and got to work colouring in all the pretty flowers and leaves. I then fussy cut them before popping them onto the card with some dimensionals. It was a little time consuming – and I didn’t cut away all of the white, for fear of cutting some of the leaves off – but it was totally worth it!

Our challenge lasts for a week and will end on April 21st, at 12:00pm (EST). And as with any challenge, there are a few rules – you can check them out here.

You must stop by Colour Me….!  and check out what the Design Team has come up with! I promise you won’t be disappointed! RosemaryHayleySam, TaraKatie, and Anita, our Featured Designer for this month.

Ink: Versamark, Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride, Pistachio Pudding

White on White Birthday

It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for a new two-week challenge at Seize the Birthday. This time we are including a “Toppings” option of White on White.

Our challenge:

When I think of white on white cards, I always think wedding, so this was a slight challenge for me.

But it was also a great time to get out some of the tools and embellishments that have been collecting dust in my craft room, and create something a little fancier than I normally do. It really was a lot of fun!

As always, our challenge is open for two weeks, until April 22nd, so there’s lots of time to link up your creations – you can check out our challenge rules here.

My fellow Design Team members have also created some fabulous samples, to inspire you with, so be sure to stop by Seize the Birthday and check them out - NancyGlendaColleenSusieSharynJodeneJoAnn (taking a break), MarzenaJanet and Shirley. We can’t wait to see what you create!!!  

Sure hope you will join the party!

Here’s what I used:

Card Stock/DSP: Whisper White, Vellum

Ink: Versamark

Stamp Sets: Peaceful Petals, Simply Sketched

Tools & Embellishments: Big Shot, Modern Mosaic EF, Secret Garden Framelits, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Tea Lace Paper Doilies, Heat Tool, Early Espresso Emboss Powder, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Stampin Dimensionals, Glue Dots

Hello, Baby!

 - by OttawaMom

Happy Wednesday everyone! Time for a new challenge at Colour Me…! and this week we are using some “Striking” colours – Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight.

I love how bright and fun our colour combo is this week – Bermuda Bay is one of my favs too!

I knew I wanted to do a baby card but had trouble figuring out a layout, so I decided to use this week’s sketch from Seize the Sketch.

And since there are three little baby ducks on my card, I’d also like to link my card up with the “Three Spree” challenge at The Paper Players.

Our challenge lasts for a week and will end on April 14th, at 12:00pm (EST). And as with any challenge, there are a few rules – you can check them out here.
