You Brighten My Day! {CC70}

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!

It’s time for a new MFT Color Challenge, CC70!  A gorgeous palette of Orange Fizz, Persimmon, Gravel Gray and Berrylicious!  GORGEOUS!

Print

I seriously just LOVE this darling new Pure Innocence Beach Day!  She is just the CUTEST!  I started with the background, and I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using Blueprints 13 Die-namics.  I stamped the sandcastles and flags in a repeated pattern using Berrylicious Premium Dye Ink and Orange Fizz Premium Dye Ink.  LOVE.

I cut this little cutie from X-Press It Blending Card using the Pure Innocence Beach Day Die-namics and then stamped her using Pure Innocence Beach Day using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I colored her with Copic Markers and then popped her up with Foam Tape onto a panel of Berrylicious Card Stock cut with the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics.  I added a strip of patterned paper from the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Paper Pack behind the circle element, and then added a sentiment panel, cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics.  I stamped “You Brighten My Life” using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink, and then finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

Hello! {CTD444}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge and this week, Amy Rohl has challenged us to use green, gray and white!  LOVE this color combo!

For my card, I started with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock, cut with Blueprints 13 Die-namics, and I added a mat of Smooth White Card Stock cut with Blueprints 20 Die-namics. I added a strip of patterned paper cut from the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Paper Pack, using Blueprints 13 Die-namics.

I cut a panel of Gravel Gray Prestige Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, and I added a trio of roses, cut from felt, using the Rolled Rose Die-namics and Mini Rolled Roses Die-namics.  The leaves were cut from Gumdrop Green Card Stock using the Royal Leaves DIe-namics, and I arranged them around the circle panel. Using the Thanks & Hello Die-namics, I cut “hello” several times from both Gravel Gray Prestige Card Stock and Silver Sparkle Card Stock, and then layered them together.   I then added the “hello” to the circle element, and finished off the card with a trio of rhinestones.

Well, I simply cannot get enough of the Triangle Turnabout Background from Concord & 9th, and I used yet again!  I started with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut with Blueprints 13 Die-namics, and then stamped the panel using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink, Coral Crush Premium Dye Ink and Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink.

I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, and then stamped “HELLO” and “lovely” from Hello Lovely, also from Concord & 9th, using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink and Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink respectively.  I added two flags cut using the Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics using Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock and Coral Crush Prestige Card Stock.  I finished off my card with a trio of enamel dots.

Hello Lovely! {CTD443}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Broni has challenged us to use turquoise, lime green, yellow and white!  SO pretty!

I LOVE these colors and had so much fun making this card, which I gave to my 98 year old Nani for Mother’s Day!  I started with a panel of Ranger Watercolor Paper cut with Blueprints 1 Die-namics, and I then stamped these GORGEOUS flowers from Hello Lovely by Concord & 9th using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed the flowers with Black Embossing Powder.

I watercolored the flowers using my Gansai Tambi Watercolors that I got some time ago from my pal Vanessa’s shop and just used for the first time!  They are SO fun and SO pigmented!  After I watercolored the flowers, I spritzed on some of the colors, as well as some white acrylic paint that I watered down.  The sentiment, “HELLO LOVELY” was stamped using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink and Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink. A trio of rhinestones completes the card.

PrintThis card was SO fun to create!  I started by cutting a panel of the included Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using Blueprints 13 Die-namics, and I stamped the flowers and leaves from Sketchy Flowers using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink
