This is also for today's Pals Paper Arts challenge to create CAS card using scallops. Again, this was pretty easy for me because I love scallops! CAS is always a little tough just because I love to embellish! I think I pulled it off pretty good on this card, though.
Finally, the sketch comes from Tuesday's Inspirational Card Sketch. I was lucky enough to find a sketch that already had scallops "built" in! HAHA!
I used my new Sale-a-Bration Set, Sweet Summer (free when you place a $50 order) and a set from last year called Whimiscal Words. The designer paper I used is Lap of Luxury. The image was created by stamping on watercolor paper, then using my aquapainter and makers to water color. The flowers themselves are cut out and popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.
The ribbon is Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

This is for today's sketch challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers... I love this sketch! So many possibilities.. I will have to revisit it again and see what else I can do with it!
This is also for today's Color Dare to use Always Artichoke, Perfect Plum, and Neutral of Choice. My neutral is Crumb Cake!
Everything is pretty self explantatory, but if you have a question about this card, please just leave me a comment!
Have a great day!

This card is for today's color challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers to use Always Artichoke, Rose Red, and Perfect Plum. I was a little worried about how dark this combination was, but I added the white and found some designer paper that would work, so it lightened it up quite a bit.
I ended up with quite a few more layers than first thought, but I like how it turned out overall. The stamp I used is from Punch Bunch which is a Sale-a-Bration set you can get for FREE if you order $50 or more in regular merchandise from Stampin' Up! It's a great time to stock up on paper, or any thing else you have been eying for a while!

I made mine by using a smaller coordinating stamp and then running it through my die cut machine!
The stamp I used is one of my all-time favorites called Live Your Dream and unfortunately, it was only available for a short time. It is now retired, but I just couldn't resist inking it up this morning! I stamped my image in multiple colors by using my Stampin' Write Markers.
This color combination (Tempting Turquoise, Tangerine Tango, Pear Pizzaz, & Whisper White) comes from this week's Curtain Call Color Challenge! I have to admit that these bright colors are not ones I would normall use with this image, but I like how it turned out!
The sketch is from Friday's Clean&Simple Fall-To-Sketch! The die cut I used to make the shape of my main image is non-Stampin' Up. Everything else is, though!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous Monday!

Hello! I have successfully finished my first full week of a card a day! Woo Hoo! Next week will be tricky as we are heading down for our first dance competition of the year, but I'm determined to make it work! I might have to skip Friday next week as we are leaving some time in the morning, but that's ok!
This is for several challenges:
#3 - The sketch comes from this week's Pals Paper Arts challenge.
#4 - And finally the color scheme is for the ColourQ which is to use Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango, and Cherry Cobbler. I have to admit that Tangerine Tango always throws me for a loop! It's just not a color I would normally gravitate to, but I'm proud that I made it work on this card!
The stamp used is from the Occasions Mini Catalog called Create a Cupcake (#121982 clear/#121915 wood mounted). I used the new Build a Cupcake Punch (#121807, also in the Occassions Mini) to punch it out. The bottom "wrapper" is stamped in Cajun Craze ink on Tangerine Tango paper and mounted on Stampin' Dimensionals. The icing is stamped in Not Quite Navy ink on Baja Breeze paper.
The ribbon is the new 1/2'' Seam Binding in Baja Breeze (#122331). I absolutely LOVE this ribbon! The button is from the Designer Big Buttons pack called Sweet Stitches (#122302). I used the linen thread to tie the button to the bow.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

#1 Splitcoast Stampers Ways to Use It Challenge to stamp a silhouette in black ink
#2 The Play Date Cafe's color challenge to use Red, Green, & Black (I used Pear Pizzaz, Basic Black, & Poppy Parade)
#3 CASE Study (I drew on her flower and butterfly motif!)
#4 Create with Connie & Mary's Sketch Challenge
I pulled out one of my most favorite sets of all time, Upsy Daisy for the main image of my card. The butterfly is from Flight of the Butterfly. The big butterfly is punched out with the Butterfly Punch and the smaller one was stamped and cut out by hand. Both are popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals. I finished off my card with the new Pear Pizzaz Seam Binding and some Basic Rhinestones.
The designer paper is the In Color Print Pack level 1 hostess!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great day!

Today's card is for the Color Dare which is to use River Rock, Marina Mist, and Night of Navy. It's also for today's sketch challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers!
This card features two stamp sets you can get for FREE right from Stampin' Up! For every $50 you spend, you get one Sale-a-Bration set for free! This card uses the Sweet Summer and So Happy for You sets.
The designer paper is from the neutrals patterns pack and the ribbon is the striped Night of Navy ribbon! The flowers were stamped and then cut out and mounted on dimensionals. I colored my images with Stampin' Write Markers (Night of Navy, River Rock, and Marina Mist).
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

I found this sketch from Skipping Stones Design that I thought would work as I could feature some designer paper instead of having a main image... let's face it, most of my images are very girly... and awesome I might add.. haha!
All in all, I'm okay with how this card turned out and hopefully he will like it as well! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great Tuesday!

This is also for Create with Connie & Mary's sketch challenge for this week! I really loved this sketch... so fun to play with!
I colored my image with my Stampin' Pastels (I still have the old version of them). I don't use them very much, but I always love to use them when I stamp directly on Crumb Cake. I just like the effect it gives.
The main image is from the hostess set, Slice of Life. The sentiment and the bottle are from Baby Bundle.
Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
This is for last week's Colour Q to use Poppy Parade, Blushing Bride, Cameo Coral, Early Espresso, and Very Vanilla. I thought it was going to be a challenge, but it actually came out quite nice! The designer paper is the Poppy Parade from the In Color Print Pack Hostess and then the image is stamped in Cameo Coral.
This is also for Friday's Mashup!
Thanks for stopping by!
