Hello

Hello and Welcome to another Fusion Card Challenge, where you can use the sketch or the photo or both. Here is what I did with it.





I was inspired by the flowers in the vase and the window behind it in the photo. 

Vase stamp is from Papertrey, Ink. I used a punch from Martha Stewart to create all the little flowers. To match the flowers in the photo, I used a Copic marker to color the paper before punching the flowers out. Tiny pearls used for the centers of the flowers. Window die is an old one from Memory Box. I did put a piece of acetate behind it to give it a bit of realism.  Sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Please check out the Design Team’s creations for this challenge, once again, they have knocked it out of the park.

Hydrangea's

Hello - What is this, my third post today? Wow, the mojo was flowing today. LOL =) I'm now playing in the Twofer challenge with the code word of Flowers. 




Mondo Hydrangea is from Ellen Hutson. I stamped it in versamark ink and heat embossed it using detail white embossing powder from Ranger. Then I spritzed them both heavily with water and dipped a paint brush into blue watercolor and let it run. Layered both of these onto navy blue cardstock.

Once dried, I added the sentiments and the flower centers using fabrika decoru drops.  Sympathy sentiment is from Honey Bee and the birthday one is from Simon Says Stamp.








Official Memo:

Hi all. Playing in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge today of making your own background.



I used distress oxide inks in speckled egg, antique linen and rustic wilderness with the argyle stencils from Newtons Nook. This has actually been sitting in my background stash for a while and I put it to use for this challenge. 

Memo paper die is from Papertrey, Ink. Shirt and the sentiments are from My Favorite Things.  I did pop up the argyle background with a sheet of adhesive foam tape from Scrapbook.com for a little dimension. The shirt is colored with Copic's, fussy cut out and popped up as well. 

ETA: Adding this into the following challenges:

Tied some natural string from PTI onto the ends of the balloons and tied a bow. Dot outline die is from MFT. Blue cardstock is from PTI.

Stenciled peonies

Hello. I am determined to use up a lot of my un-used card bits in my stash this year. When I first got the peony stencil from Simon Says Stamp, I used it right away and then threw the panel in my to use later box.  The time is now....


It's been sitting in the box for so long that I now do not remember what inks I used to blend with on this. I did add some wink of stella to the center of the flowers. The green panel in back is embossed with a dotted quilt folder from Darice. 

Birthday sentiment is from Avery Elle and the butterfly die is from Memory Box.

Mint Butterfly

Hi everyone. It's time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This month all of our weekly challenges will be Anything Goes!





I used one of the butterflies from the quartet stamps to create this little square.  Colored with copies and I added some dots around the perimeter to go with the designer paper.
