Color Challenge at The Outlawz December 30, 2014


Our new color challenge for this week has been posted!
Our fun challenge is Tic Tac Toe

and here is my card.  The colors I chose are from top left to bottom right and as
I chose that diagonal I had to use flowers, punch/die & pearls.  I loved making this card
and used my favorite papers once more.

The papers are from Graphic 45 'Botanical Tea'.
The leaves were punched and for the roses I have used a Marianne Die.
The pearls are self adhesive ones.  The sentiment is from GKD.

Do pop over to The Outlawz

Thanks for looking and happy crafting.
Happy New Year too!!

IBSIC #89 Color - Just A Little Something


I am finished with Christmas cards so it is time to move on and make
something else.
Today I decided that I would enter the color challenge at Inspired by Stamping

 I love the color combination
but unfortunately my photography is not crash hot and my colors look darker 
than they actually are!

Here is my card:

You might ask "Where is the yellow"?  
Well it is there under the sentiment - a strip of yellow ribbon.

For my card I have used Graphic 45 'Time to Celebrate' paper.
IBS Fancy Label Dies 3
IBS Stamp Set 'Fancy Labels 3
A piece of paper doily, Lace, Self adhesive pearls, piece of rick rack.
Compliments of the Season to all and if you are travelling  have a safe one!

Thanks for looking and happy crafting.

Color Challenge at The Outlawz December 16, 2014


Judith chose the Inspirational Photo for our challenge this week. A beautiful Christmas
table setting and the twist is to add Tartan fabric.

For my card this week I decorated a tag.

I have used a stencil and embossing paste on white card stock and when dry
sponged with distress ink.  The branches and deer's head are cut files for
the Cameo from Miss Kate Cuttables. These I have rubbed with Inca Gold Paste,
Antique Gold & Silver.
The Poinsettia is from Spellbinders which I cut in red card stock and rubbed it with some 
silver paste.  Made a bow with some twine.

we would love to see you.,

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

Color Challenge at The Outlawz December 9th 2014


Today our color challenge at The Outlawz was chosen by Ina!

and here it is.

This week I decided to try something quite different.
I must however give mention and credit to Bird, thanks Bird, from 'Bird's Card' 
as I have downloaded a free cut file from her site.
I thought it would be interesting to see how it would work using these colors.  I have left a cut layer. 
out and used an embossing folder on the base layer.  I hope you like it.

Our Sponsor this month is our group's leader Laurian and the prize is a 
gift voucher for some digis so please pop over the The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge (the link is above) and have a look at the beautiful creations of the other Design Team members 
and join in the fun by adding one of your own creations.

Looking forward to you joining us.
Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
