Colour Crazy Team - Fred She Said

Hi friends - I hope this note finds you doing well, staying safe & healthy!

Our weekly challenge is always "Anything Goes" as long as you include some coloring on your project; hope you'll play along, we enjoy seeing your creations!

This week we are featuring digital images from Fred She Said; I used the Poppies image. Sometimes I should study an image a bit more before coloring (more on that momentarily - LOL). It's another simple card colored with Copics and colored pencils. I stamped a sentiment from THIS set two times in the lower left-hand corner and one time in the upper right-hand corner BUT after adding shading, it's definitely difficult to see. Whoops! I also added this postmark stamp along with a leaf image 3 times in the middle of the postmark image.

I added some striped paper to the base card and mounted the panel on fun foam, I finished the card with some PPP marshmallow confetti sequins.

OK, things you should know...poppies come in ALL different colors; hence the variety on my card; BUT that flower in the lower left-hand corner? Yea, that's a bud, not an actual flower - oops! #howtoknowitshandmade :D

Thanks for popping in; hope you'll check out all the other creations at the Colour Crazy Challenge, then join the fun! See you again soon!!

It's a Bunny Parade

These Hop To It products from Taylored Expressions along with the Mini Strips - Easter stamps make it so quick and easy to create Easter or any fun type card...don't box yourself in to Easter only, think outside the box. However, I did make a handful of Easter cards to share with friends and this was a set of 3 - pink, blue, and purple.


Thanks for stopping by; hope you are safe and healthy!! Take care.



MIUCB #36 - Fancy Fold

Hi friends - welcome back; so glad you are here!!

This month at Mix It Up, it's Anything Goes as always, BUT if you want to join in with the Fancy Fold challenge, we'd love to see your creations!

Let's be honest; we're friends, right? I am not good at fancy folds when it comes to cards; I'm not an engineer like Jennifer McGuire - LOL; and truth? I suck at math! So, I set about doing something a bit different for my fancy fold!

I colored up this gorgeous image from Gina K and Hero Arts, Friendship Blooms with some watercolors and finished with colored pencils. I fussy cut the image and added lots of splatters in white and black. I then cut the flowers diaganolly, folded over the ends of the image and hid the message below the flowers. I saw someone else do something similar recently and was definitely inspired! BUT...I needed a way for it to stay closed, so I added a heat embossed vellum belly band, sentiment from Altenew Simply the Best.

New manicure needed; dry cuticles from so much washing! ;) 

I sponged on colors to both white pieces (outside / inside) to tie it all together. It's truly not a fancy fold, but I still thought it was unique and fun!

Thanks for stopping by; hope you join us for Mix It Up where it's Anything Goes or Fancy Fold!

LTSCB #132 - For The Girls (monochromatic scheme)

Hi friends!

Isn't it great we have this crafty network community that we can rely on during these really difficult times? Our county is under a stay order and we've had layoffs and furloughs at work, so it's been a very stressful time; but I have to admit, after the work day is done, it sure feels good to escape and do a bit of creating!

I hope you will join us over at Love to Scrap; it's a fun one 'for the girls'!

I recently purchased a couple images from Unity Stamps, this one is Hannah Girl - they have a lot of great images! I had saved on Pinterest a card colored very similarly to this one; I loved the various pinks, you can definitely say I CASEd the card!! I added colors with Copics and finished off with colored pencils. I used a stencil to add some interest to the background and glossy accents on the balloons.

Hope you can carve out some creative time and join us at Love to Scrap; we'd love to see your creations! Take care, stay healthy!
