Four New Cards

Happy Saturday! Today is the day I get all caught up posting my cards. Yippee!
This card was made for a color challenge, one that I found very difficult to do. We had to use
pretty in pink, really rust, and night of navy. The pink base was run through the Cuttlebug with the divine swirls folder. The navy strip is punched using the SU scallop border punch. The image is on whisper white and really rust that was die-cut with Nestibilities labels. Image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits and popped up on dimensionals. Added some tiny buttons, brads and ribbon. I still am not sure what I think of this.
Stamps: Rubbernecker
Paper: pretty in pink, night of navy, really rust, white
Ink: Stazon black, night of navy
Accessories: Cuttlebug, divine swirls folder, scallop oval punch, Nestibilities labels, Prismacolor pencils, mineral spirits, paper stub, dimensionals, buttons, ribbon, brads.

Run for the Hills! For the WT227 we had to use doubles of stamps, or embellishments, ribbons, etc. I have had this set for over a year and never used it so decided this was the time to ink it up. First I versamarked the tall pines and heat embossed with green embossing powder.

I made a mask to create the hills and sky. Lots of sponging! The sky is sponged with yoyo yellow, only orange and really rust, the hills are sponged with creamy caramel and green. I used some of the grass blades from Kitties Kits to stamp on the ground. The bear, boot, weiner on a stick and camp fire were all stamped with basic black and colored with watercolor crayons and a blender pen, then cut out and put on dimensionals. Added some birds and sponged with close to cocoa all around the edges of the card. I had great fun making this card.

CC229 and SC239
The colors are certainly celery, pixie pink,barely
banana. I think this is a wonderful color combo and is one I never would have thought of. Did a little paper piercing with an Ornare template in the corner, added dewdrops and brads. The image is stamped with certainly celery on whisper white using a bamboo background stamp. The flowers are Poms from Basic Grey. A very simple, quick card to make.
Stamps: Bamboo bg, Basic Grey Poms
Paper: certainly celery, pixie pink, barely banana, whisper white. Doodlebug designer paper
Ink: barely banana, certainly celery, pixie pink
Accessories: dimensionals, ribbon, brads, dewdrops, Ornare piercing template, piercing tool.
IC189 I loved this inspiration challenge. I chose a handbag called Eco Chic as my inspiration.
The base is cream colored Bazzil cardstock stamped with Distress Tea Dye ink using the linen background stamp.
Always artichoke is the base for the image. The image is stamped with always artichoke on very vanilla. I ran a gold metallic around the edges for a little elegance. The picket fence is a Martha Stewart border punch. The butterfly was stamped with the tea dye ink and colored with an always artichoke marker. Diamond stickles added to the butterfly which was then cut out and popped up on a dimensional. Added some half pearls and this gorgeous sheer green ribbon. I think this is one of my favorite cards.
Stamps: Embrace Life, Linen background
