Color Challenge Monday – A Day Late

I bet you are wondering what is going on. Well I had this card created yesterday but the weather was so dreary I could not get a decent picture. Today was a little brighter so I was able to take a pic.

Last month one of the color challenges on Splitcoaststampers was to use Basic Black, River Rock, and white. I saw lots of beautiful cards created with this color combination and wanted to give it a try. I really liked this sketch I had used before so decided to use it for this card. Here is what I came up with.

Stamps: Garden Silhouettes (retired) Paper: Basic Black, River Rock, White, River Rock DS Ink: Basic Black, River Rock Accessories: Basic Black marker, Photo Corner punch, Word Window punch, oval cutters, black organza ribbon

So, what do you think? Thanks for looking and have a great evening!

Sketch Saturday

Wow what crazy weather we have had this week. Close to 80 degrees, then sleet, heavy rain, and who knows what the weekend will be like. But that is Maryland weather for you. They say if you don’t like it wait a minute and it will change. I hope everyone was able to enjoy the 80 degree day!

Earlier this week I told you about the search for a guest designer at VerveVisual. I talked about how the sketch was a great one and that I would definitely want to use it. Well I took advantage of the fact it was my week for the sketch challenge and used it to create my card. I am submitting it but there are so many other talented stampers out there I don’t think I will get chosen. But that is okay as it is fun to try. As part of the challenge you had to use at least one of their stamps sets and it had to be a long card so you could not change the shape. I have 3 of their sets and chose the Seeing Stars one. I had wanted to use the stars to make flowers so I stamped them on the designer paper and cut them out. I then played with them by layering one on top of the other to get my flower but I did not like how the flower looked. Then I had to change my idea and head in a different direction. It is hard to see in the picture but the pink paper on top has the swirls from the star swirl stamped around the edges. Here is the sketch and my card. I think it is soooooo cute! What do you think?

Stamps: Seeing Stars (Verve Visual) Paper: Green Galore, Pretty in Pink, White, DCWV Spring stack (last year) Ink: Basic Black, Green Galore, Pretty in Pink Accessories: Star brads, dimensionals, sticky tape.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Wednesday’s Design by Robbie

Yeah it’s Wednesday! I hope everyone gets a chance to enjoy the beautiful weather we have today. Well I am keeping my streak going. I did the Mojo-Monday sketch for my card today. If anyone is interested Julee from the VerveVisual stamp company is having a contest looking for a guest designer for June. They have a great sketch to try. If you think you might want to be the next guest designer head over there and post your card. If not the sketch is a great one to use to create a card to send to someone.
Here is my card and the sketch. I spent more time with the ovals in the hardware than anything else. I’m not sure you can see but there are actually 3 layers inside the hardward. The bottom layer is Green Galore, the second layer is Tempting Turquoise, and the last layer is white. I wanted a hint of the green to show. You can barely see it in real life. I also stamped the scallop circle with the canvas background before I punched it. It is also hard to see. The turquoise layer in the center is actually Flowers for You Designer Series Paper but my photo did not show the hint of flowers on it. I didn’t have a ribbon that was wide enough that I liked so I created 2 layers of cardstock and put the grosgrain ribbon on top. It actually looks much better in real life but it wasn’t bright enough when I took my picture.

Stamps: Unfrogettable, Cute Converse (retired), Watercolor Minis (retired), Canvas background (retired) Paper: Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise, Flowers for You DP, Sweet DP (retired) Ink: Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise Accessories: silver hardware (JoAnn’s), Green Galore brads, large and small oval punch, scallop punch, turquoise ribbon, sponges, dimensionals, sticky tape.

Hope you have a great day and Thanks for looking!
