Coloring Down The Lines --- Primrose Petals with Scoring

So glad you could make it again for our Blog Hop Wednesday and our color challenge.  You probably arrived from Liz's blogsite.  Great job again, Liz.  We were challenged this week to use Primrose Petals with Summer Starfruit and Basic Gray or with So Saffron and Marina Mist.   Our additional twist this week is to use scoring on our creation.

I chose to use the Primrose Petals with Summer Starfruit and Basic Gray.   I used a very small sentiment because I wanted the scoring to show, but it may be better if it were larger.  I may go back and add a paper label on top of the original one.  This just looks like something is missing.  

I hope you like my challenge this week.  Now you should hop over to Robbie's blogsite.  She is the beginner of the hop, but if you started with me, then you can go to her and continue on around.  I am sure Robbie will have a great creation, she always has great creations. 

Have a wonderful day.  Pray for spring with me.  I am tired of snow, ice, and flooded bridges.

Coloring Down The Lines -- Midnight Muse Using a Sketch From Another Challenge Site

Hi everyone.  Welcome back to our Wednesday color blog hop.   We have an interesting one for you today.  But first, I believe you arrived from Liz's blogsite where you found something very pretty yet again.  I'm always amazed at what Liz does. Today we are to find a sketch from a challenge site, then make our creation using that sketch.  We are also to use colors designated for today, and they are Midnight Muse with either Rich Razzleberry and Crushed Curry, or with Cherry Cobbler and Pool Party.  I decided on the second set of colors because I really wanted to use my new Sale-a-bration FREE set of banners and coordinating punch.  I wanted colors I could print on without using any white.  I think this does it on all requirements.

First, I used the sketch from Clean and Simple Sketches, which you can find      here       This was a pretty easy sketch, especially for what I had in  mind.  The colors turned out to be great man colors, and so now I have myself another man card, and we know how hard it is sometimes to come up with a man card.

I also used the dots embossing folder from the Sale-a-bration catty.  There are some cool things that you can get for FREE, so make your wish list and get your orders in while you can get your freebies!  Use my website   here    to place your orders if you don't already have a demonstrator.

So now lets continue around to the beginning to Robbie's blogsite to see what she has done. Robbie comes up with some really unique creations.  I love to CASE her.   Of course, if you started with her, then you have reached the end of the line with me.

Come back to see me again soon.

Coloring Down The Lines -- Gumball Green, Clean and Simple

Welcome to Blog Hop Wednesday and our Coloring Down the Lines.  This week we were to use Gumball Green with So Saffron and Melon Mambo or Gumball Green with Midnight Muse and Marina Mist.  We also were to keep it clean and simple.  I chose Gumball Green with Midnight Muse and Marina Mist.  I think this one is pretty simple.  When I want to add a ribbon, a rhinestone or two, or another layer, then I figure it is simple.  I resisted the urge and just did the hexagons.  I know these colors aren't Valentine colors, but oh well, I can create however I want, right?  Maybe this is a good guy card.  Guys don't usually like all that pink and red and hearts and flowers.  So this may go to my favorite guy.

You probably came first by way of Liz's blogsite.  I still haven't gone over there to look, so I will have to go back to see what she did.  But she always comes up with something really nice.  And speaking of really nice, Robbie is next on your hop, and she always comes up with super ideas and really nice cards finished both outside and inside, and envelopes too.  So let's hop to Robbie's blogsite and then you can continue all the way around.

Come back to see me again soon.

Envelopes and More

Hi everyone.  I'm so excited that each time I go into my blog I can actually post.  Doesn't take much to excite me, does it.  After a month of not being able to download pictures, finally figuring it out has made me one happy camper crafter.

Last week I did a class with a really fun bunch of ladies.  They had just recently bought the Envelope Punch Board and wanted to know if I could show them some ways to use it.  So we all got together for a fun day of crafting, and tons of yakking and laughing (thanks Carolyn for being the hostess).

This is one of the projects we did.  Of course, the first thing was to do an envelope.  Which we did with cardstock, and then we lined it with Watercolor designer paper.  Next we made a file folder card.  That style card is started like a regular card, cut 3/4 inch off the bottom and then use the punch board to punch the tabs.  We decorated with more of the Watercolor designer paper.

Hope you like the first of our class creations.  I'll have more in the next couple of days.  Don't forget to come back on Wednesday for our Coloring Down the Lines blog hop.

See you then.

Coloring Down The Lines -- Wisteria Wonder with Pinterest CASE

I'm back, and I am really happy to be back.  There just wasn't any way to get my photos to download.  But thanks to my good friend Robbie, who suggested I try using Chrome as my internet search engine, and  my wonderful hubby, who helped me download it, I am back in business.

You should have arrived from Liz's blogsite for our blog hop this week.  I sure have missed being in the challenges, but I have still been looking at everyone's creations.  Aren't they beautiful, and I'm sure Liz's is beautiful today too.

Our challenge this week is to use Wisteria Wonder with Soft Sky and Sahara Sand or Wisteria Wonder with Pink Pirouette and Cherry Cobbler.  The twist, and this is a good one, is to find a card on Pinterest and CASE it (Copy And Share Everything).  Pinterest is a challenge to me because I don't go there -- yes, you heard me, I don't go there.  But I had such a good time looking for a card, that I will go back often from now on.  So following is a card done by Julie Davison on Pinterest.  I love the look and so I copied hers.

Now here is what I created, based on her card:

I chose Wisteria Wonder with Soft Sky and Sahara Sand as my colors.  I really like the colors.  I also used the new Scalloped Tag Top Punch.  Love it.

So now you should head on back to the beginning to Robbie.  If you started with me, then take a look at Robbie's creation and continue all the way through.

I'm so glad to be back.  Come back and see me again soon...................
