Grape Card/CDS Color Challenge

I made this card for the CDS Color Challenge over at Paper Craft Planet. Shawne is the host this week and the colors that she chose are: only orangeorchid opulence(medium purple/dark lavender)green galore(lime green)white and/or black neutral.

When I saw the colors I thought Grapes!

So I used 2 different stamps from CDS :Fruity Fun & Just Divine (which I think is being retired).

I stamped the bowl in gold and stamped vines and grapes on it and paper pieced it.

I used my nesties for the white & orange cs. The dp is from Memorybox Butterfield, I don't have a corner rounder so I did the corners by hand. I ran a piece of lime green cs that I had through with my swiss dot embossing folder. The ribbon was actually from Blog Candy that I won from Shawne (thanks again:)) It matched beautifully. I made the grape charm using the same grape stamp I used for the image and added laquer to it and attached with a jump ring, I tied a little piece of green ribbon for the vine.

These colors were so much fun!

Eyelet Card/Whimsy Stamps Challenge

Here is a card I made for Whimsy Stamps Challenge it is to use eyelets.

I don't have very many eyelets but now that I have used them a few times, I'll have to go buy some more.

I used a snag'em stamp from the Twitterpated collection called Wildflowers colored with Zig markers. The dp and paper flower was from blog candy I just won and couldn't wait to use. I stamped Happy Birthday in gold (which shows up much better in person). I put eyelets in all the flower centers.

2RedBananas Banana Split Sunday

2RedBananas has their Sunday Challenge, today is "Bag, Boxes or Wrappings".
I created a little box for some note cards I am making for my boss for Christmas.
The note cards are going to monogrammed with the colors orange and mint green. I found the dp that matched to cover my white cardstock.
I didnt use a template for this I just went off the size of my notecard. I did leave a little room on the side for a pen or pencil/stamps.
I decided to keep it very simple and I like the way it turned out.

Tuffet Bday!

My card for the CDS Color Challenge over at Paper Craft Planet I created using the adorable stamp that I won. It is called Get Off Your Tuffet from CDS.

The colors this week are Sage Shadow (light almost mint green)Apricot Appeal (soft yellow)optional: Really Rust (orange red)Close to Cocoa (brown)neutral Vanilla or White.

Well my Apricot Appeal looks more orange than soft yellow but the marker said light apricot.

I knew I wanted to use this stamp and went through my dp and found some paper called Miss Muffet Collection-Tuffet- from Piggy Tales. the red seemed to match and the other side of the paper was mint green so I thought it would work well.

I stamped my image twice and paper pieced the girl. I used my octagon nestie and cut the bottom off so I could cut the seat and make it look like fringe. I colored her with zig markers and flesh white copic. The ribbon was also from my blog candy that I won from Shawne. The dew drops are white ones that I colored with a mint green Copic to match. Joanns is now selling the dew drops and I had been wanting some so I went with white since you can color them with Copics and they turn out great.

The Blog Candy I WON

Here is the wonderful Blog Candy that I won from Shawne.

The ribbons are gorgeous and I cant wait to use the paper.

She sent me a stamp from CDS called Get Off Your Tuffet and another yard of beautiful ribbon that are not in the photo, I was using them:)
She sent me the card that she created for the CDS Color Challenge that week and I can tell you the photos do not do this card justice. It is amazing.
Thank you so much Shawne.
