CPS 125

I just had to get my Just Rite stamps out for this one. The "friends" circle is from the Harmony Classic Circle Stamper II {2 5/16" diameter}. I stamped it in Versamagic Pink Grapefruit on Papertrey Ink white cardstock. I then stamped FOREVER using my Brayton font and the wood rectangular stamper. Patterned papers are My Minds Eye and Scenic Route.

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #12

I have that exact variety of Coleus from the inspiration photo in my front porch flower pots. Such beautiful colors. My card today is made with all the color challenge Papertrey Ink cardstock: Vintage Cream, Spring Moss, Raspberry Fizz and Scarlet Jewel. Vintage Picnic basket was stamped with Vintage Cream ink on to Scarlet Jewel cardstock and cut out. Envelopes were paper pieced. I added two Spring Moss rhinestones to the basket handles. Look at the itty bitty holeless button I found in my Spring Moss button jar - so cute!

CHF Resist Challenge Card

I like how this card turned out. Masking with non-clear stamps is not easy! I embossed the images on to white cardstock. Then I added a different color to each of the 3 strips with a brayer. Then I sponged on other colors to get a mottlee, varigated look.
That varigated silk ribbon just seemed to go with this card.

CHF Summer Challenge #1 Card

For the first challenge the required part is to color an image. I love this Rummage Bin image
" Wonder is best when shared". I stamped it on water color paper and painted it with water color paints. Haven't used those in about 5 years I'm pretty sure! It was fun. Cardstock is Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist and pp is Graphic 45. Twine is CTMH.

Hero Arts Photo Card

I haven't made a photo card in years. This is one of those "lucky" pictures. I was snapping pictures of the boy and his dog after we returned from the airport to pick the puppy up and ended up with this wonderful image. Cardstock is Papertrey Ink and patterned paper is Making Memories Just Chillin'. Sentiment is Hero Arts. Buttons and twine are also Papertrey Ink.
