Mix It Up

I have a card today for Ellen Hutson's Mix It Up Challenge which is to use any Essentials by Ellen product with a Technique Tuesday product.

I recently got Julie's
Wild Garden die set and this is my first time playing with it. I did some water coloring on the flower and leaves and added a few vellum die cuts to the design.

The thank you sentiment is from Technique Tuesday and is one of my favorites because of the wonderful hand writing (it's way better than mine)!

Thanks for stopping by today!

It's Tic Tac Toe Time

There's a brand new challenge up at Poppystamps and for the first time we're having a Tic Tac Toe Challenge. Pick three items in a row (across, down or diagonal) to use on your project.




Embossing – Dry or Heat


Polka Dots




I chose the top row of flower, ribbon and sparkle for my card.

First I created a frame with the Memory Box Stitched Oval Layers set and inked it up with Distress Inks. I die cut Poppystamps Crocus Trio and added glitter to the flowers and I couldn't resist adding some gold splatters to the oval background.

For the white panel I took the tracing wheel from my sewing kit and ran in randomly over the card stock which I had sitting on a foam pad. It gave some nice texture and interest to the panel. Unfortunately the lines are difficult to see on the finished card so here's a look at a sample panel.

I finished off the card by adding the sentiment and some ribbon to the white panel.

Now, I hope you'll give the Tic Tac Toe Challenge a try. For all the details and to see what the rest of the team came up with please click here.

Pretty in Pink

There's a new challenge up at Poppystamps and this month the theme is Pretty In Pink. Pull out all your pretty shades of pink and upload a project here.

For my card I first water colored paper with shades of yellow, pink and peach and die cut two of the Confetti Floral Borders from it.

I also water colored paper with only pink to die cut the "happy" from the Share the Happiness die set.

I took vellum and used Alcohol Inks in pink and peach to colour it. I adhered this to my card base and the Confetti Borders on top. The colours on the vellum did not show up well in my photos, they are darker when you see the card in person.

I finished off the card by gold embossing the "wishes" sentiment from the You Melt My Heart stamp set and adding a few gems.

You have all month long to play in the Pretty In Pink challenge here. Since Mother's Day is just around the corner it's a great time to maker a card for her and enter it in the challenge here.

I can't wait to see your projects!

I'm entering this card for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes!
