Oh Happy Day - Watercolor Background

The challenge this week at Just Us Girls is "watercolor background".  I created the background on my card with Zig clean brush markers in blue, violet and light blue.  The cute elephants and the sentiment are from Mama Elephant again using my Zig markers, fussy cutting them and popping them up with dimensionals. And, the clouds are from Poppy Stamps.

So happy you stopped by today :)

City Crafter Challenge - Pineapples

Hi!  This week at City Crafter Amy is our hostess and she is asking everyone to make a project with a pineapple(s).  Because I think of a warm beach when I think of a pineapple, my card has a tropical feel.

Please stop by the blog to see what the other DT members have made for inspiration and join in on the fun!

Thanks for stopping by today :)

Twofer Challenge = Beverage

There's a new challenge at the Twofer Card Challenge blog this month:

Since my all time favorite beverage is coffee, I chose to use coffee stamps for my submission.  The stamps I used came with Issue 177 of Simply cards and papercraft magazine.

Thanks so much for stopping by today :)

That Bites!

So, keeping in my zone, I'm entering another color challenge at Cupcake Inspirations today.  The colors are: Yellow, white and black.  Here I chose to use these crazy Avery Elle fish again, just love these little fish and their funny expressions.  And, the sentiment makes me laugh so much.  The die I used is from Tutti designs and I've used it quite a bit for summer and sea cards.

So happy you stopped by today :)

Enjoy the Sunshine

Using the colors gray, yellow, white and kraft is the challenge this week at Color Throwdown.  I'm taking on color challenges lately because I have always had a little trouble with them.  After putting this card together I'm very happy with the results.

The flowers and sentiment are by Altenew. The scallop die is by My Favorite Things and the gems are Lawn Fawn.  How's that for using a few stamp companies.

Thanks for stopping by today :)

Turn that frown upside down

The stamp set I used on my card has been on my "I Want That" list for a long, long time.  Not sure why because I love it and as you can see I finally bought it, "That Bites" by Avery Elle.

This week's Muse Card Club challenge is by Tracey McNeely (see card below).  Although I have an Ellen Hutson mermaid tail stamp and die set I chose to use sea fish for my card, after all a mermaid is a sea fish isn't she?

I took my inspiration from :
  • Blue water streak on white card stock
  • Funny sentiment
  • Sea life

So happy you stopped by today :)
