Speedy TV Tutorial Time #63 Stained glass on vellum


My card today was done using the cool technique stained glass on vellum and it was brought to us by Ginny!  Super cool!  I stamped my hibiscus in versamark on vellum and embossed in black. I used some fun dp I had laying around and added a bit of pink passion to the dp and some directly on the vellum to brighten things up...love this and will definitely do again! I used MFP's a HC stamp set Hum Along.

A Unity Color Challenge


My cards were made for the August color challenge over on the Unity blog here. These colors just sing to me....LOVE THEM. I would love to be in that photo....I can smell the wonderful Autumn scents, can't you?  I really, really wanted to stamp some fall leaves, but these are the only leaves I own from Unity in this Itty Bitty...so I went with it. I did the magical masking tape technique to put my colors on the glossy paper. The dp is some I got from Unity...a steal of a deal.  I will also upload this on the Unity Show & Tell on FB here. I added some fun button, embroidery thread and some ribbon to finish if off. I want to make some more cards (actually I have one partially done..another magical masking tape) with these gorgeous colors!.....edit...finished second card, too!

For my Country Charm card today, I used the cool tutorial from Pat Garvin from last Friday's TTSTV 61-Block it Out. I LOVE this technique. Check it out here. I popped the middle rooster and the cow's head up.

For my card above, I did some fussy cutting of some of dp to cut out the poinsettia and the tan base is the opposite side of the dp. I stamped the scene in chocoate chip and colored in with crumb cake, real red, gumball green and sponged in the marina mist. Some velvet ribbon and a button to finish it off. My card below was done by painting some green acrylic paint onto the stamp and randomly stamping around the card. I used some red gems and stamped the sentiment on a separate piece and popped it up.
Have fun on the hop and head over to Pat's blog next.

My first card above, I made for the WT challenge on SCS this week and I also used our mini set, Take Time.  Using a bg stamp or creating your own bg. I think this set is fabulous for masculine cards (which I always have a hard time doing). My card below, I used mushroom colored acrylic paint (also used the new mini set). Have fun on the hop!

This is our extra set for the month. I made a TLC442 challenge card over on SCS...external frame and an internal sentiment. I kept it simple to be able to frame it with ease!

MFP's a HC extra set for August-Lucky You

I made this card for the TLC442 over on SCS today...external frame and an internal sentiment. I kept it simple as I am on a mad creative bash!  I leave in the morning to take my daughter back to school. We have an 8 hour drive, sleep, move her in and drive back as we leave for Ohio on Friday for a wedding. SO bussssssy!  I used pearlescent watercolors, a bit of liquid pearls, a circle and a scallop circle punch for my frame!

MFP's a HC TTSTV challenge 61-Block it Off

Our challenge today is brought to us by Pat Garvin....block it off. I've never done this before and I absolutely love it!  Thanks for this fabulous and quick technique, Pat!  I used MFP's a HC Bring on the Sun. Black, early espresso, summer sun, gumball green and peach parfait for ink. Papers used: baby blue, early espresso, parchment, summer sun.  I laid the early espresso pad lightly around the edge of the image and then sponged a bit of soft sky around the edges. Head on over to mfpspeedytv to play and you just might win the stamp set below!
