Wednesday Blog Hop -- With Distressing

Welcome again to our Wednesday color blog hop.   We have chosen the following inspiration piece for our color challenge this week.  Robbie has  done a good job of picking the Stampin'Up! colors that closely relate to the colors in the inspiration piece.

These are the Stampin'Up! colors.

And this is my creation using all of the SU colors.  We also were to distress our piece and so I have sponged and bent, and blotched, in order to make it look distressed.

You should have come to me from Laura's blogsite and now you can continue back to the beginning to Robbie's blogsite.

Happy Crafting,

Wednesday Blog Hop -- Pretty Birds

I'm back again for our Wednesday blog hop.   We were given a picture today and asked to work with the coordinating Stampin'Up! colors.  Robbie was nice enough to work up the corresponding SU colors.  Although I used the colors given, I don't think there is as much yellow in  my card.  In any event, I had fun.

You should have arrived from Liz's blogsite.  I spoke to her yesterday and she was still working, so I will be heading around the hop to see what everyone, including Liz, did this week.

Here is the inspiration piece and the coordinating SU colors:

And here is what I did with it.  I used reinkers in Pear Pizzaz, Old Olive, and Tempting Turquoise on glossy cardstock.  Then I punched butterflies from some of the left over pieces of paper.  We were not given a specific added piece this week, just whatever we felt like doing.  So I decided to add homemade ribbon.  I used a piece of SU Organza ribbon and colored it with an Old Olive marker.  There is a lot of turquoise showing on my card.  If I could do it over again I think I would add several drops of Daffodil Delight to make it more like the inspiration piece.  But I do like the blues and greens too.  Hope you like it.

Now continue hopping to Robbie's blogsite.  If you started with her, then you have reached the end.  If you started with me, keep going to see what everyone else has done.

Until next time.....................

Coloring With Seeds -- Add Rectangles

We have started something new for our blog hop.  Robbie continues to head up our Wednesday Hop, however, we have gone through the entire Color Coach and want something new.  We've agreed to use a super blog site called Design Seeds for our color inspiration.  Robbie takes an entry from there, uses MDS to find the most comparable Stampin'Up! color, we decide on the "twist," and now we have another interesting hop.  It was started last week, but I was in Florida and did not join in until this week.  I hope you love this new format as much as I do.  Come join us.  We would love to have more entries.  Just let me know you want to join.  My email is over there on the right in my profile.

You should have arrived from Liz's blogsite today.  I haven't seen hers yet, so I don't know what she has done, but she comes up with some beautiful ideas.

Here is the Seeds entry for today.  Love those pretty blues.  Following that is the Stampin'Up! comparable colors.  And our twist is to use layered rectangles.  We don't have to use ALL the colors, however, this week I did put them all in my card.

                         Here are the Stampin'Up colors.

And here is my interpretation of the colors and the rectangles.  Hope you like it.  

Now you should continue the hop to Robbie's blogsite.  I'm actually last, however, if you started with me, then hop on to Robbie and continue to see what everyone has created this week until you come back around to me.  I'm sure they are all beautiful.  I'm going to hop with you to see what they have done..........
