Reverse Confetti April

I hope you all had a lovely Easter Holiday Weekend!  We were blessed to have beautiful weather and yummy food.  So once my dinner was in the oven, everyone else was still sleeping and so I decided to head on down to my craft room and work on my Reverse Confetti  Color Challenge.  At first quite honestly I was skeptical of the colors......

These are definitely not colors that I would naturally put together but I pulled out a few of my paper pads and low and behold I was able to pull some together! The sketch is something that I put together with a few "ideas" rolling around in my head. 

I used the RC die Love Note and Stamp Set Arrows N Elements.  The little flowers I am not sure where they came from but I had them in my stash so I am thinking Wild Orchid.  And now that the card is done- I really do like the colors together!  What do you think?  

Have a great week! 


So this week I thought I would make a little spring project that will also fit for this weekend's EASTER celebration.   I had these candy tubes and of course some jelly beans and they fit so well with the dangling spring sentiments and embellishments in the spring shape set over at Gina's Designs.  

I painted all the pieces first with adirondak paints and then used a speckled stamp for the umbrella and an eraser for the boot!  Aren't they cute?  I just attached them to the ribbon and they hang down like charms.  :)

JR Challenge. some masking

Today's card is made for the Just Rite challenge.  We were asked to use the masking technique and so I started with the Have Courage sentiment and then made a mask to fit over it, stamping the ribbon over the top.  I wanted this card to be soft and pretty; to give to a friend who is going through a rough time.  I hope you will join the challenge if you have some time.

Seaside Escape

Hello!!  So today's project is a little different don't you think?  The base of the project is the Gina's Designs Spool  At first i was not sure what to do with it and then i went through all the chipboard scenes I had  and the beach is where I wish I was now- so here it is. 
The spool was coated with modge podge and then I covered it with coarse sand.  Then I took all the little pieces and started painting them.  Lets see what there is here, first is the little adirondeck chair surrounded by shells and flowers.  Look at the little lobster!   In the background is the white weathered fence with the life saver hanging on it surrounded by some tall grass.  Atop the entire spool is a lighthouse ... beckoning you to come and join us on the beach!
Come join us for some sunshine and sand!

Reverse Confetti #11 Just sayin'

Hello everyone!  Today's card is made using the Reverse Confetti challenge!  I find that I am really enjoy banners and so I thought I would work them into this sketch.  The little dots are ones that I spent this last Saturday making out of perlers.  It was alot of work but fun to see all the colors- reminds me of old fashioned candy dots.  

So here is the sketch.   I had in my mind what I wanted the card to look like but I turned the sketch and worked from there.  The sentiments on the card are from Reverse Confetti Arrows n Elements

Have a great week!
