Having the Blue's?

DSC#197

This weeks DOstampers challenge I took the color scheme of the blues and grays.  I thought that it was time to make a good guy card with the colors.  


I also took the effect of the clothes line and made it a banner.  To get the flags on the banner I used the framelits "Bunch of Banner."  I also used this to cut out the Birthday saying.  This set of framelits also comes in a bundle so you can SAVE!!!  Stampin' Up! has also come out with a few other stamp sets that go with this framelit set.  I love that the framelits can be used with other stamp sets!

I had seen the idea of the 3 different embossed pieces on another card somewhere and thought why not do that for a guys card!!  It doesn't make it look to girly and it adds such dimension to the card.  And for a little bit of bling I added some Star Sequins from the Metallic Pack.

I hope you like today's challenge!  Make sure you go and check out the other DOstampers!

It's a Fruity Challenge

Why do I say FRUITY????
Look at all the color names:  Pear, Peach and Watermelon!



It is good to be back with the DOstamper Challenge Thursday!

For this weeks challenge I want to try a little different water-coloring.  I think it turned out pretty good,if I say so myself.  My daughter really liked it!  And with this color set it made it really easy to do.  

For the background of the card I sprayed the cardstock with water and then took my Aqua Painter and dropped different color drops where I wanted to watercolor look for the background.  Below you will see what this looks like when it is done.

The swirly flowers were cut from the "Swirly Scribbles Thinlits".   After I cut them out I took and sprayed a little bit of water on them and then took the Aqua Painter again and added some Watermelon Wonder to them.  This just gave them a softer color to go with the background.  I topped off the big flower with a little swirl out of Watermelon Wonder to give it some depth.  

I finished the card off with a little bit of Copper Metallic Thread, Basic Pearls and the Hello greeting in Basic Black.  I am loving all the Metallic Threads that Stampin' Up! has come out with!!

I hope you liked today's card.  Make sure you go and check out the rest of the DOstamper's that is participating in this weeks challenge.

Let's get Punchy!



Here we are with another challenge Thursday, but this one is right up my alley if you know what I mean.  I am all about the punches and now the framelits!!

When this challenge came up I knew I wanted to do something with the Fox Builder Punch.  And what is great about this punch you can bundle with a Stamp Set and SAVE!!


With this punch there are so many animals that you can make.  And I am sure as time goes on the creative minds out there, they will come up with other projects to make.  Well I will not keep you waiting any longer...


Isn't she the cutest Bear you have seen!!

For the body of the Bear I used the Fox Builder punch.  I then trimmed of the ears on the head part of the body.  I replaced these with 1/2" circles, which were from the Owl Builder punch and I added the little hearts that are also in this punch.  The little feet are made with the Owl Builder punch and a Black Sharpe marker.  The nose is made out of 3/4" Circle punch.  I punched it out and then just trimmed it up at the top of the circle to give it the oblong shape.  Finished the nose off with a cute little heart from the Confetti Hearts Border punch.  I used this punch for the heart because I wanted a fatter looking heart for the nose.

As for the stamping on this project I used the stamp set Foxy Friends.  And for the bow on the bear that comes from the framelit set called "Balloon Framelits".

Below is a list of supplies that I have used on my project today.  I hope you can join us in the future!
