Two Daisies ~ CCMC579, GDP207, AYSI209


Hello Stampers!  Today's card is my design team card for Create with Connie and Mary's new color challenge.  Aren't these colors just yummy???  I certainly think so!  I played around with the no line watercoloring technique to make these fun daisies.  Daisies happen to be one of my favorite flowers and I love the ease of the Daisy punch which leads me to another challenge I'm participating in...As You See It favorite punch or die.  The daisies also allow me to play with Global Design Project's Bloom and Grow challenge.





Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!

Rich Painted Harvest ~ CCMC578, PP458


Hello there stampers!  Today's card is my design team card for the new sketch at Create with Connie and Mary.  I've also incorporated the colors from the Paper Players #458.  They are so rich!  I decided to go with the beautiful Painted Harvest sunflower.  I stamped it first in Cajun Craze and then in Merry Merlot.  The center of the flower is Soft Suede with some Early Espresso dots.  The leaves of course are Pretty Peacock.  
I stamped the background piece of Merry Merlot with the Buffalo Check plaid stamp in Merry Merlot ink.. The strip of Cajun Craze is embossed with my Subtle EF.  I added some bits of copper foil paper putting a little strip under the Cajun Craze piece and the sentiment piece.  I also added some copper leaves punched from my leaf punch.
This card is going to a good friend of mine that is just beginning her fight against cancer.  She WILL WIN!

Ink: Blackberry Bliss, Night of Navy, Versamark
Paper: watercolor, black, white, Vellum
Accessories: Rectangle Stitched dies, Bouquet Bunch die, Sprig punch, Basket weave EF, Black Shimmer EP, Rhinestones colored with a black sharpie, hole circle punch

Terracotta Rose Friendship ~ CCMC575, ATC166, AYSI207


Hello there stampers!  My card today is for this week's color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary.  We are using Terracotta Tile, So Saffron, and Garden Green. 
I'm also joining up with Addicted to CAS One Layer challenge and As You See It challenge #207.  Technically my card isn't a one layer, but it's white on white, so it looks like one layer.  I wanted to emboss the main panel with the Subtle EF after it was stamped and I feel like it's easier running a cut piece through the big shot rather than the whole card front.
I loosely followed the sketch for AYSI.  
I kept my card very, very simple and let the colors shine for themselves!
