Robbie’s Color Challenge

I saw the faux shaving cream technique on a blog and remembered I had learned how to do this at convention. I had the colors Tempting Turquoise and Garden Green and I immediately thought of an underwater scene. I created the background by sponging Tempting Turquoise all over the white then going back and sponging Garden Green on top. The small picture is a close up of the wheeled background to show how it looks like bubbles under the water. Here is the card I came up with. Let me know what you think.


Stamps: Various fish, Whimsy wheel Paper: Garden Green, Tempting Turquoise, White Ink: Garden Green, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black, Silver Accessories: photo corner punch, Whimsy wheel, corrugator, silver brads, dimensionals, sponges.

Sketch Saturday

I can’t remember if this weekend is my turn to do a sketch or if it is Robbie’s. I just decided to go ahead and do this one from istamp, check out her blog http://stampinat6213.blogspot.com to see her really cute card. She used DSP from Crew Kids Girls Simply Scrappin’ Kit. I will definitely be using Crew Kids in Sloane’s and Sam’s scrapbooks.

So here is the card I came up with for this sketch, I decided to use the retired DSP from the Friends and Flowers Simply Scrappin’ Kit, and the current level 3 set Time Well Spent. Friends and Flowers was another one of the Simply Scrappin’ Kit’s that I had to have, it was one of the level 1 hostess benefits from the 2006-2007 Catalog. 😉

Wednesday’s Design by Robbie

What a dreary day! It doesn’t help with photographing pictures either. I created this card this morning. I saw one of these on a blog I read and thought it was fun. I went to Splitcoast and found the directions. It didn’t look like it would be hard so I decided to give it a try. After I had folded my circles I wanted to see what other people had used in the center of theirs. In searching the gallery I saw this card and wanted to use the same general idea. Once I created my card it was still missing something so I decided to just case her card. Here is my take on her design. If you look you will see there is no stamping involved in this card. Let me know what you think.

Paper: Groovy Guava and Berry Bliss DS Paper, Groovy Guava, White Ink: Close to Cocoa, Groovy Guava Accessories: Photo Corner punch, Circle punch, Spring Bouquet punch, Mini Blossoms Kit (Making Memories) for tiny center flower, white brad, dimensionals, sponge.

In making the dahlia the folding can be challenging but I learned several tricks in putting it together. Hope you like this. I am off to visit my interns. Thanks for looking!

Tuesday’s Treat

Candice called me and challenged me to do Mojo Monday week 24 from PoeticArtistry along with her. The sketch looked like it could lend itself to some great cards so I agreed. Here is the sketch and our cards. I had fun doing mine and think it turned out pretty cool. What do you think?
