Thinking of You

Loving the Color Throwdown shades of the ocean.  
And they led into the perfect response to the Try Stamping on Tuesday's Tic Tac Toe, striaght across the middle row:

The card base is white, the circles holographic silver, and the circles aqua and bright blue, sentiment from Gina Marie.  I really hate trying to take picture of metallic papers, but I love this card!!!

Color Slider Christmas Card - Photo Heavy Post!!

I wanted to make a color slider card.  In the process, I made a lot of pretty trash!!!

I inked the background with oxide inks and added the snowflakes in white, cut the snow with a stitched dies, stamped the Recollections image, patterned paper DCWV.  I stamped the image on the transparency with Staz-On, and colored the other image with Derwent watercolor pencils. 

I am sharing this with The Paper Girls Challenge #156 - Transparencies, and Shopping Our Stash #362 - Christmas in July, and Jingle Belles All Bundled Up.  Wow!!!!  I rarely am able to enter more than one challenge at a time!!!

All Bundled Up for Christmas in July

The Jingle Belles challenge is All Bundled Upholiday cards with LAYERS... three or more layers, to be specific.  When I hear layers, I think about triple time stamping my way - using dies.  

Shopping Our Stash also a Christmas challenge - perfect for hot and steamy July!!

Gold metallic paper, the poinsettia layers are from SU!  The old Recollections sentiment is heat embossed.  I used Lawn Fawn stitched dies to make the SEVEN layers!!  Come play along with us at Words 2 Craft By for our Flip Flipping Summer challenge (talk about opposites!!).

Monkey See Monkey Do

Color Throwdown 501 looks like this:
Here is my version:
The images are from Stampendous, stamped in Sepia Ranger ink, and fussy cut.  This will be great for Cards for Soldiers!  They end blank greeting cards and notes of encouragement to our deployed military.  You can find them on Facebook.

Try Stampin' On Tuesday (or Thursday!)

The Try Stampin' On Tuesday has a sketch challenge this week:
Here is my version:
I wanted the patterned paper to blend rather than contrast, and I love the way the elephants pick up the grays in the paper!
