Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #61 and WT329 on SCS-Live, Laugh, Love

The WT challenge on SCS today is to use something old and something new.  My old is the vintage violet card base and the new is the Magnolia Wedding stamp set from MFP's.........luvvvvv it!
I stamped the magnolia in burnt umber and used pearlescent watercolors-then I cut it out.  The flourish around the sentiment is from a hummingbird stamp that a friend gave me.
Thanks for stopping by!

I love you! Card Patterns Sketch Challenge #120

I made this yummy card for Card Patterns Sketch challenge which can be found on their blog hereDRS Designs is sponsoring this challenge and will be giving away a $20 gift certificate to their store to one randomly chosen participant.  Ya gotta play!
My card today uses the large strawberries and the I love you! greeting.  I stamped the strawberries randomly in noir black and used an aqua painter to pick up wild wasabi for the leaves.  The strawberries and flowers were done with pearlescent watercolors.  A fancy edge punch, ribbon and buttons for the embellies.  Head on over to the sketch challenge at the Card Patterns blog, do the sketch, submit your card and you might win!

Today's lucky winner of this fun, large beer mug is

To claim your prize, just send an email to info@drsdesigns.com

I am ready for a little island hopping!!!!  Or, I would settle for a day at the neighborhood pool! 
 I stamped the brushed beach sunrise in noir black and used sponges to apply the tempting turqoise for the water and baja breeze for the sky. Also, I used crused curry for the sun, river rock for the mountains and wild wasabi and close to cocoa for the palm tree.  The beer mug was stamped in versamark and embossed in black and then cut out.  I used a versamarker and then embossed some beer in copper.  The beer foam is white pearl liquid pearls....lastly, the beer mug was popped up as was the sentiment.  A few brads added and I'm ready to go have a cold one!

Best wishes in the stamp a day giveaway!!!

I made my card a little busy for the hop today as this will go to my MIL for her BD.  This is everything she likes.  I have the glittery florishes as well as some on the dp.  Baby pink flower soft was used on the trees but it was close to impossible to photograph.  Floating along is a beautiful set with lots of great possibilities!  Go check out Joanne's blog and leave her some love!

Morning!  This set is wonderful!  I paired it with BG's Granola dp.  I stamped the shell on hazelnut tan, cut it out and covered with crystal effects (I was done for the night as it had to dry).  Using twill tape, I stamped some smaller shells in burnt umber onto it.  Three faux brads as a finishing touch.  The sentiment is on dimensionals.
Hurry on over to MFP's for some fabulous stamps, papers and embellies!
Have a great day!

Oh Happy Day!  The poppies in my neighborhood are in bloom!  I need to plant some for next year.  Love this set and talk about versatile.  I can't wait to try some more fun things with it.  I did a combination of things here.  I randomly stamped the poppies with noir black and then watercolored with red riding hood and pear pizazz.  Next, I got out my fav pearlescent watercolors and "riched" up the poppies.  Sponged some black lightly around the flowers.  Added some pearls and voila!  I do believe that this is my new fav set!

My card today uses MFP's brand new set, available today, All Aboard.  I did a combo of watercoloring and using markers.  The dp is Reflections by Prima available at MFP's and so is the lace.

Beach News TLC328

Here is a sneak peek of a new set from MFP's called Sand. Surf. Relax and if I do say so myself, it is awesome!  So much to be done with it.  I randomly stamped the different shells in burnt umber and used pearlescent watercolors to give them color.  Added some random dots and some sahara sand sponged on for the sand.  Prima's Madeline dp used, half pearls and some gorgeous lace from MFP's.  This was made for the technique challenge over on SCS today which was to decorate the envie. 
Thanks for stopping by!
