Reverse Confetti August Color Challenge

Yay! I'm so happy I got my 'Fetti stamps and dies in the post a couple of days ago! Thanks Jen!! I love all of them!

So I was glad I still had time to play for this month's color challenge which was to use Navy, Red and Gold.

This is my card for the challenge. I used Tag Me, Too Confetti Cuts, Class Acts Confetti Cuts, Love Note Confetti Cuts and the sentiment is from All About You. I wanted to make circles with the gold thread but ended up tying it round the hearts instead, so much easier!

Thanks for looking!

Mama Elephant & Me August Challange

I had so much fun playing with the first card, I couldn't resist whipping up another one. This time I used the stamps from ME's Fair Feathers. I must admit that the first time I stamped the ink bottle, I put a little too much water on the stamped image that the ink bottle completely lost it's shape so all I could see was a brown blob. So I had to go in and stamp it again. Luckily it didn't turn out too badly I think.. The feather, sentiment and the little ink splats are all from the same stamp set. I'm liking the multi-colored hemp string that came with the Make It Market Kit (Papertreyink) so I had to use it along with the water droplets.

Till next time...

Sweet Havana Birthday Card

Hello again! I thoroughly enjoyed taking part in last month's Mama Elephant & Me challenge that I was all set for August's challenge. This month's challenge is all about Water Coloring + Birthdays - you can see some of the lovely cards that the DT girls whipped up here. I used 2 sets of stamps for my first card. I stamped the stripes from Basic Borders in Ocean (Creative Color - also from ME) on watercolor paper and smudged up the lines a bit. I also used some of the ink to fill up the white spaces in between. Once that was done, I die cut it using the scallop frame from Femme Frames. I also stamped and die cut several of the images and the banner sentiment from Sweet Havana in different colors on canvas paper and put them altogether. I used a white pen to put some of the little dots on the flower bouquets.
