It just screamed "door" to me, so that's what I tried to create.  


























I started with a Crumb Cake base. The door panels are Natural Composition DSP.  I sponged all the edges with Chocolate Chip ink.  The sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on a strip of Crumb Cake.  2 brads finish off the card.

UDI Color Challenge 126

Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a wonderful start! Here is this week's color challenge on the UDI blog.

  

Here is what I created.





















I used color-blocking to create a background that reminded me of the water and sun.  I embossed the color-blocked layer with the Cloudy Day embossing folder.  A quote about sunshine from Feel Goods was die-cut with a Labels framelit.  The label was sponged with So Saffron and adhered to the card with dimensionals.  A rhinestone was added for just a touch of bling. 

Head on over to the UDI blog for more samples.

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps- Feel Goods.  Ink- So Saffron, Not Quite Navy.  Paper- Naturals White, So Saffron, Pool Party, Not Quite Navy.  Accessories-  Big Shot, Cloudy Day embossing folder, Labels framelits, Rhinestone, dimensionals, sponge dauber.

UDI Sketch Challenge 232

UDISC232 Mar 16Happy Saturday! This past week flew by...especially for my kiddos. They had a really early Spring Break this year. To top it off, it was 37 degrees here yesterday morning. Crazy! No worries, though. It made it up to 73 yesterday, and the highs will be in the 80s this weekend. LOL Now for your regularly scheduled programming. :) Here is today's sketch. 

I used it to make a birthday card for a co-worker.  I hope she likes it.  

 

























The card base is Melon Mambo layered with Basic Black.  The background piece is Whisper White.  I ran my Melon Mambo ink pad over the Stripes embossing folder before running it through the Big Shot.  The sentiment is from Curly Cute.  I stamped the Basic Label image in Basic Black and then colored in the outline with Melon Mambo.  I used the Apothecary Accents framelit to cut it.  The Basic Black layer is a rectangle and 2 1" Circle punches.  I flattened a small Soda Pop top in the Big Shot and added a 1/2" Basic Black Circle punch  to the center.  My butterfly was cut with the Beautiful Wings embosslit.  Rhinestones add a touch of bling to its body.  I adhered the sentiment panel to the card with dimensionals. 

To see what the other designers created, take a peek at the UDI blog.  

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps- Basic Label, Curly Cute.  Ink- Basic Black, Melon Mambo.  Paper- Whisper White, Basic Black, Melon Mambo.  Accessories- Big Shot, Stripes embossing folder, Apothecary Accents framelit, Beautiful Wings embosslit, Soda Pop top, Rhinestones, 1" and 1/2" Circle punches, dimensionals.

UDI Color Challenge 124

Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a wonderful start! Here is this week's color challenge on the UDI blog. 

  

Here is the card I created.  





















I chose Naturals White as my neutral and used it as the card base and the focal image layer.  I used the negative part of one of the oval framelits as a mask and sponged Daffodil Delight and Regal Rose on the card stock.  I stamped the image and sentiment from Kindness Matters in Early Espresso.  That's it.  Clean and simple.

March Stamp to the MAX Blog Hop

Happy March! It's time for another Stamp to the MAX blog hop! This month we're featuring projects all about Easter and/or Spring!  (I'm sure most of you are probably ready for Spring!  I'm already mid-Spring here in Florida.  LOL)  We hope you are inspired! You may have arrived from Lisa's blog, you may be a regular reader :), or maybe you just stumbled here by accident! However you found me, I'm glad you're here! I am stop #6 on the blog hop, and I created an Easter card for you today!

 














The card base and the image panel is Naturals White card stock.  There is a mat of Melon Mambo in between them.  The oval from Oh, Hello is stamped in Pretty in Pink.  The flower is stamped in Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi.  The greeting from Delightful Dozen is also stamped in Melon Mambo.  

I hope you enjoyed my stop on this month's hop.  For more ideas, continue on to Max's blog.
