A Little Plaid Fun

I love plaid... especially this time of the year, although in Phoenix there is not a lot of occasions for me to wear plaid and I so miss snuggling under blankets! So my challenge for this week is to create you own plaid... I used our printed paper, inked up our Fannel Life background stamp with Clear Pigment ink and stamped over the striped printed paper. I am so loving our amazing PanPastels ... I used the Limeade Splash pan and smoothed it over the printed paper... which created the most beautiful plaid.
The rest of the card just came together... love how it turned out!

Cardbase: Watermelon Fusion
Stamps: Among Nature, Holly Jolly,
Dies: Journey Ovals,
Ribbon: Limeade Splash Satin Ribbon
Inks: Dark Roast, Clear Pigment Ink, Gold Embossing Powder
Journey Color Burst Color Pencils

WCMD! Yes I Love Making Cards!

I love our stencils and I had a challenge last week... any card using our stencils, or our splashes or both ... so of course I had to use both! 
At first I created a background with our Vintage Screen stencil and Journey Modeling Paste on Rich Coral but the leaves blended in too much so I decided to go with Rock Candy! I used our Silver Shimmer Splash, Dark Roast Silk, Citrus Cooler Silk, Gold Silk and even through on some Cosmic Grape Silk! Love these ... we have like 14 colors of silks and 17 choices in Splashes! 
The leaves I stamped with Rock Candy, and brushed over them with our Brushed Silver PanPastel... our PanPastels are luscious... and add a richness to everything they are used on! 

Here are the supplies I used: 
Stamps & Dies:Autumn Days, Autumn Time, Spirit Animals
Embellishments: Twinkle Trim, Brushed Silver Organza
Ink: Rock Candy
PanPastel: Brushed Silver

Birthday Wishes

Love our PanPastels and the new background stamp Vintage Notes ... What an easy combo to make something gorgeous.  I used Clear Pigment ink and PanPastel (Party Pop) for the background with our new Vintage Notes stamp, the Butterfly is cut out of Turbo Teal and our Brushed Gold Cardstock... Which cuts like Butta'! The word phrase is embossed...and Gold Shimmer Splash on it all! I love this  ribbon from the  Holiday caddie... it's the Oatmeal Cookie  .. pretty easy card! Card base is Turbo Teal!

Whoo hoo Charity Wings asked me to make something beautiful for them to auction off!  I am so honored to do something for such an amazing organization. They give hope to so many people of all ages ...through art ...which is so cool! Please support them anyway you can! 
So I decided to create on one of our Memory Easels... so much fun using our journey media products... I painted it first with Journey Gesso, then Cool Pool acrylic  paint... I sanded it a little then I sponged on some Buttercream acrylic paint! I die cut tons of different stuff and then laid it out a bunch of times configuring it in different ways and mulling it over... ya know the creative stuff... it takes time! Luckily for me I didn't glue anything down till I was absolutely sure!
I love this color combo: gold, Cool Pool, and Buttercream... luckily I have cardstock, silk, paint and splashes in those colors! Whoo hoo! I definitely think they are my favorite colors right now!
 The flowers I diecut out of Buttercream cardstock using our awesome steel rule die, called Summer Bouquet, it makes three sets of two different shapes  of flowers. It's simply makes the most gorgeous flowers ever!
My favorite discovery was I added gold embossing powder to our Clear Blooms Accents and they turned out sooo pretty! The swirly swirl wood flourish I also added gold embossing powder to ... and wow they are so gorgeous in gold! And guess what ... the flourishy things are free with any $50 order! They are one of our Bloom Benefits ... one free for every $50's spent! I hope my creation makes someone very happy.... ps... the photo page is removable so the person who wins it in the auction can change it up if they like!
ps ... we have an awesome sale going on right now too on all our essentials adhesives, scissors, clear blocks and all kinds of cool stuff!
