Papercrafter's Corner #65

Hi Everyone
I hope you're enjoying the long weekend. My daughter is home from so I'm HAPPY!

This week's Papercrafter's Corner challenge is awesome:

I tried a couple designs and finally settled on this one:

I took inspiration from all the text. I started out using watercolors on the background. Remember that paper I didn't like before? I still don't like it but it worked fine for this card. I just wet the whole sheet and added colors wit a waterbrush. All I wanted the colors to do was run & blend. All the stamps are Unity.

I hope you'll join me in this challenge. I'd love to see what you create.

FWF & PCC #64

Hi Everyone!

Well...I finally got my daughter all set up in her dorm. When I went to school (ages ago) I could fit everything in a little car. My daughter needed something bigger. We filled our Blazer with most everything my daughter wanted to take with her. There's more that she'll be taking next weekend. I have no idea where she'll put anything else!

I was able to make a quick card for this week. I have new stamps & dies that I REALLY wanted to use.

First up is PaperCrafter's corner inspiration piece:

And now my card: 

The butterfly stamp is from the April 2014 Layers of Life
Spellbinders die
Darice embossing folder

Hi Everyone!

I didn't get a chance to play last week because I've been trying to get my daughter ready to send off to college. She'll be staying at the dorm so, of course, she thinks she NEEDS everything on the school list! Between that and trying to get her laundry time left for crafting. It would be easier if she didn't knock out her knee. Anyway....
Here's my Unity card for this week. 
The flowers are from the October '12 Kit of the Month. I colored them with Zig photo markers. I was very surprised they still worked!

My next card is for PaperCrafter's Corner Magazine Monday challenge #63. Here's the inspiration:
I chose to use the black/white background and the color blue:
I used the Midnight Chic paper from DCWV. I like that it has matching patterns in the black & white. I used a Unity stamp and a little bling and the card was done. 

Have a great week!

PCC 61

Hi Everyone!

This week's Papercrafter's Corner challenge had me using something I haven't used for a long while....embossing powders.

At first I couldn't figure out what to do. I kept seeing the trees. But the more I looked I began seeing other things. The word holiday, the red & white umbrella, the blue sky. Then I thought...Christmas!

If you haven't played along with these challenge you should really give it a try! Who knows, you might even win a prize :)
