Happy, Happy Wednesday!!   

 It's time for another Color Throwdown challenge. AND... I'm playing in the Pinkfresh Studio January challenge!! I chose the May challenge- Anything Spring!!

This week the colors were chosen by Lori!! 

This week we're playing with pink, green, and mustard.





I played with Pinkfresh Studio goodies. I stamped the Blooming Peony in a light gray ink and then, colored with the coorindating Blooming Peony stencil using Pinkfresh inks. When finished I diecut the panel with the Folk Edge essentials die. This was glued to a white A2 top folding card.

Happy, Happy Wednesday!!   

 It's time for another Color Throwdown challenge. AND... I'm playing in the Pinkfresh Studio December challenge- all about Holidays!!


Please join us at the Color Throwdown!!  

This week the colors were chosen by Broni!! 

This week we're playing with gold, pink, and light blue.



I played with Pinkfresh Studio goodies. The background was gold foil embossed with the Quadrant Backdrop hot foil and layered on a gold panel. I hot foiled the ornaments-Ornaments hot foil and stenciled with ballet slipper and sky blue inks. The ornaments were then cut with the coordinating die. Some ornaments were glued flat and some adhered with foam for added dimension.

Pinkfresh Studio November Challenge

Playing along in PFS monthly challenge for November... this month is all about texture.


I chose to play with Life is Good- a PFS and Scrapbook.com collaboration (stamp, stencil, and die). 


First, I gold embossed the floral image and then, used the coordinating stencils to ink blend. Love me some PFS stencils!!! The colors I chose are close to the picture on the package- thought they were perfect for this time of year. Next, the Elongated Lattice Cover plate was adhered to 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 piece of cardstock and then adhered to an A2 fold base using foam backing. The sentiment  from My Favorite Things to Say 2 stamped in black, layered on a gold base, and popped up for dimension. Lastly, I added a few gold pearls


A little close up to see the gold embossing.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Gave me an opportunity to play with the Fall Leaf Border stencils again. 


I used some of the colors in the graph for my card. Love these bold colors with this set. Sentiment is from the Simply Sentiments You stamp set and the Sentiment Suite: You die set. The "You" was die cut three times and layered for dimension. My colors were chosen from the graphic above. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Pinkfresh Studio June Challenge



Good Day!! Today I have a card for the Pinkfresh Studio August Monthly challenge. 




I finally had a chance to play along!! This month's challenge was to create a background. I used the Ornate Medallions coverplate for my background and backing it with purple cardstock. Next, I stenciled the Folk Floral Stem and then stamped over it with the Folk Floral Stem stamp to get the black outline. I die cut the Folk Floral Stem with the matching die and adhered to the card front with foam dots for a little dimension. The sentiment is from the Heart Smiles stamp set and was die cut with the matching die

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
