Color Throwdown #422- Let it Snow!!

Good Morning- Happy, Happy Wednesday!! It's time for another set of colors at the Color Throwdown!! This week the colors were chosen by Barbara- we're playing with some bright ones and I love them!! 

This week we're playing with navy, hot pink, orange, and turquoise...



Played with some new images and dies from the latest Verve release. Love those graphic/contemporary trees and the sweet snowman. Went with black and white and pops of Barbara's colors. Love the effect. 

Ha... I laugh or maybe "shudder" at that sentiment after my phone call with my sweet sis! Hubs and I are gong to IN next weekend to celebrate Christmas with my family- heard tonight they are calling for 10-12 inches of snow on Tuesday and Wednesday- could be an interesting drive home!! We grew up with the weather (many moons ago) but, traveling in it.... Wish me luck!!!!

Some inspiration...

Serrendipity Stamps Blog Challenge!!

Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps Challenge! We love seeing what you make with your Serendipity Stamps and Dies. The challenge begins on the first of the month with a central theme. The design team provides samples for inspiration at the beginning, and then again at the half way point of the challenge, but you get a whole month to join us! At the half way point we'll be showing another round of samples as well as celebrating with a monthly blog hop - showing you the latest products and offering another chance for you to win some goodies from Serendipity Stamps.

The rules are simple... play along using at least one Serendipity Stamps image on your submission and link it below. You don't have to have a blog to play along - you can link your designs to any on line gallery. 

Ready for our latest challenge?




SSCB#62 Sparkle!!!! It's the perfect month for a little sparkle in our lives!! There are so many ways to add sparkle to a card- sequins, glitter, glitter paper, glitter ribbon, an image with a sparkle.... you get the idea!! Whatever you choose just be sure to include at least one Serendipity Stamps image (stamp or die) on your design!

Want to go shopping? The stamp of the month for December is Winter Doe (50% off- can't beat that!)


Here's my card...



So I had a little fun coloring and decorating this Christmas Tree. Love the font on that Happy Christmas sentiment too!! What's my sparkle... a glittered star for the tree topper, some sequins for ornaments, and that ribbon has sparkle in it!!

Looking for some awesome inspiration?   

                                        Here's the rest of the DT for some more inspiration...

Color Throwdown #420!!


Good Morning- Happy, Happy Wednesday!! It's time for another set of colors at the Color Throwdown!! This week the colors were chosen by Wanda- we're playing with light blue, sage green, yellow, and gray. 


Here's my card...



These "wild eyed" penguins made me smile!! Used a few new products from MFT... Snow Drift di-namics and the Chill Wishes stamp set/matching die-namics. Sponged some light blue on a background adding random glitter for that sparkly snow. Not clear in this picture but, totally fun!! Overlaid this piece with the Snow Drift die-namics using PTI white cardstock. Stamped several penguins and trees from Chill Wishes, colored loosely with copics and die cut with the matching MFT die-namics to create my soft winter scene. Love that sentiment!!

Color Throwdown #419!!

Good Morning- Happy, Happy Wednesday!! It's time for another set of colors at the Color Throwdown!! This week the colors were chosen by yours truly- we're playing with red, green, and orange. 


Ha... this girl's been dreaming about the Thanksgiving Holiday Celebrations... I need a little break :-)


So, I used  some new to me... Holiday Greens from PTI!! I really should have a glass of something, something instead :-) Created a little collage stamping the greens in my requested colors, layering to the side after I added a few red and orange "dots" in the background. Finished off with a layered sentiment die from PTI.

Some inspiration...
