Color Dare with Elements of Style

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday! It's Color Dare day and you can find the challenge HERE!

Today's colors are Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Summer Sun, and Very Vanilla.

I would normally not go towards these colors... at least not together, but I really like how they came out! It's a fresh, springy combination and was perfect for my new Elements of Style set that will be available on May 1st!

This card is pretty self explanatory. I stamped the flower image and then colored it with Stampin' Write Markers. The Certainly Celery dp is from an old pack of Sale-a-Bration paper from about 3-4 years ago.. haha! I still had a scrap of it laying around! The Summer Sun dp panel is from the Pink Flamingo paper.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to swing by the Color Dare & play along!

Bouquet Bunch!

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a great week! Yesterday was really crazy for me and I didn't have time to stamp, but today is a lot less insane so I got to sit down and make this card.

This is for yesterday's sketch challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers and Tuesday's ColourQ.

I really wasn't sure that I was going to be able to pull off this color combination. I loved the samples from the ColourQ design team, but I have to admit that it was a little hard for me!

The flower pots and the vase are stamped and then cut out and mounted on dimensionals. Then I just stamped the stems and flowers directly on the panel. They are colored with Stampin' Write markers!

The designer paper is from the Sweet Pea designer paper pack that is in the Occassions mini. The stamp set, Bouquet Bunch is a new set that will be released in the Summer Mini Catalog which will be released on May 1st! I really love this set!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

First Watercolor Trio!

Here's my card for today's color challenge and for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch found here:

I have to admit that this color combination seemed hard at first, but I just kept pushing through and I really LOVE how this came out!

I just got my summer mini pre-order stuff yesterday, and I knew I wanted to use Watercolor Trio. I really love this new set! It will become available for everyone to order on May 1st!

I'm Back!!!!!

After a long absence of stamping, I am finally back!!! I haven't made a card in quite a while and I was so happy to have time to make one this morning! I am hoping to be back to my normal posts... a break this long just isn't good for me! HAHA!

Today's card is for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge and for the ColourQ from a couple of weeks ago. I used this color combination because it used purples which I don't normally go to.

This card is pretty simple, as it doesn't have many embellishments, but it has TONS of layers and probably weighs about 2 pounds.... YIKES! I think this will be a hand delivered card and not one that goes through the mail!

I hope you enjoy my card for the day and I promised my posts will become more frequent!!!
