Color Blog Hop Wednesday -- April 13, 2016

We have a gorgeous inspiration piece today!  Love the vivid red, and even the white is vivid.  Watermelon Wonder is a pretty color to work with and I enjoyed playing with the dies.  So off we should have come from Liz's website.  I wonder what stamps or dies she used.  Often we think alike, which is scary, but fun.  And when you finish looking here you should continue to Robbie's blogsite.  I believe we have a bigger crew this week.

  For my card I used the Botanical Builder dies.  I find myself reaching for those flowers and/or leaves often.  Somehow I feel these will carry over into our next annual catalog.  If not, well I will be very upset.  I may even mutiny and use them anyway. I also made use of the Curvy Corner Punch to add a little interest to the black.  And you can't see, but I used -- you guessed it -- Wink of Stella on the little dots in the flower centers.  WOS gives just a little shine here and there.  I seem to be putting it here, there, and everywhere.  I love it.

I had a card that I was going to put on my blog yesterday but just didn't get around to loading it.  Perhaps I will just go for it now and set it up for tomorrow.  We have been working on the Paper Pumpkin and I did a card that pulled together a little of what I saw others do, then I added a little here and there to make it my own.   I did several cards with the PP so far, but most were following the directions or CASEing.  Tomorrow I have a craft day and plan to use the kit to make several of my own.  I loved this month and even bought an extra refill.

Head over to Robbie's now and see you soon.
Crafty Hugs,
