Lovely Color Challenge

Welcome to the DOstampers challenge Thursday.

This week for our challenge we have the color challenge.  When I seen the colors for this week, I wasn't in love with the combo at all!  But once I started the creative juices flowing it wasn't too bad.  LOL 

 You too can join in on the fun of the DOstampers Challenges with us.

Love how the card turned out.

When I started out with this card it was totally different.  Did you ever have an idea in mind and then you start to put it all together and it just isn't right?  Well that is what happened to this one.  So I changed a few things around...OK almost all of it around and came out with this!  I liked how it turned out so well, that I am including it in the Card Buffet that I am holding at my home this weekend.  I still have some room if you would like to join us!

The embossed background of this card is done with the FREE embossing folder called Decorative Dots,  you can only get during Sale-A-Bration that is going on now.  But you better hurry...because Sale-A-Bration ends on Monday, 3/31/14.   I also used a FREE stamp set called "You're Lovely" from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.

Ombre Fringe

I think this might be the easiest card I have ever made.

I did case this card and would like to thank my up-line, Dawn Olchefske.

I just love the look of this card.  How the colors just cascade from light to dark.  You could do this with Blues, Greens and Browns.  The color schemes are endless!  I just did this card for a Technique Club that I hold in my home once a month.  Everyone loved it!  And I believe by the time they all left they ordered the Fringe Scissors.  Which by the way, just came out in the Occasions Catalog.   If you haven't checked out the catalog yet...what are you waiting for!?!?

 If you would like to join us for the Technique Club you can find out more information here.  Technique Club  If you don't live near problem you can get the cards to go each month.

Gorgeous Grunge Thursday

I really can't believe it is already Thursday!  Where does the time go?!?!  It feels like yesterday I just did the DOstampers Thursday challenge.  I better slow down and smell the roses.  But can you really count being to busy if you are filling your time with stamping?  LOL

This weeks challenge is a sketch challenge, as you can see.   It looks a little confusing, I am sorry.  The square in the middle of the card is where you stamp your image and then the little splash and banner is an embellishment.  I hope this make sense.  I took the layout and it started out good, but I think I went a little off track.  But I really like how the card turned out!!

I really fell in LOVE with the Petite Petal Bundle.
Stampin' Up! has come out with bundles that can save you up to 15% on your favorite products.
How great is that!!!!

And who doesn't just love the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set?!?!

This stamp set is another one of my favorites right now. know how that can change once the new catalog comes out in July.   OHHHHH I can't wait for the NEW Products, how about you?  I know I should be happy with all the wonderful products Stampin' Up! has now but ..... come on.

When stamping with the Gorgeous Grunge stamps, I did stamp off the Soft Suede dots and the Coastal Cabana Dots.  The lines are stamped in Strawberry Slush and they are not stamped off.  Hope that this helps you create this card.

Thinking Spring Colors

Welcome to the Thursday DOstampers challenge.
You are more then welcome to join us every Thursday for a new challenge.  Our challenges are Sketch, Color and Picture challenges.  If you would like to participate, just let  me know I I will forward the schedule of challenges to you.  I will also link your challenge project on here as well.  Hope to see next week with you project.

These colors reminds me that Spring is just around the corner.

I have had this set for awhile now and I thought this would be a good time to use it in the challenge.  It is called "Oh Hello".  Not sure why I haven't used before now!!  I think that the color challenges for me are the hardest.  Not sure why....maybe because when the colors are chosen, it is harder for me to pick out the stamp set and layout I want to use!?!  How about you, is it harder if your colors are chosen for you?
