Embrace Pomegranate

I love to eat pomegranates! That is just a side note. Here is another submission to a great Challenge by Kristina, color inspiration challenge #13! The colors she chose were purely pomegranate, regal rose, river rock, wild wasabi, and whisper white.

This is what I came up with for the challenge. I had a little fun with some acetate. I water colored the image on water color paper and then on the acetate I stamped the littler flowers in white stazon to make a subtle overlay. You can see the a better picture of this in the photo below.

Stamp Sets: Embrace Life, Holiday Blitz
Paper: Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi, River Rock, water color paper, acetate sheet

Wedding Fans

So have you seen these before? I hadn't till I was asked to help out with this project. Aren't they fun! This wonderful couple had an outdoor wedding, and what is more perfect than a fan? On the front is the information. I also used crystal effects and micro-beads to highlight half of the front.

The photographer was able to make a cute collage for the back of the fan.

Kristina's Color Inspiration #11

Here is yet another great inspiration challenge from Kristina. I have been slacking I know, but it has been a busy summer and will continue to be.

This is what I came up with for the challenge. I already knew that I wanted to do a chipboard flower and use my craft ink. I really don't use it as much as I should. Anyway, to do the flower I sanded the edges, and then inked it up in whisper white craft ink, then I used the viney stamp from my newest stamp set Fresh Cuts and I inked it up in so saffron craft ink and stamped it on the craft ink. While the ink was still wet I poured iridescent ice EP on it and heated. I then did several layers of clear EP to make it smooth.

Stamp Sets: Fresh Cuts
Paper: Shimmery White, Textured Going Gray, Rose Red, Old Olive, So Saffron
Ink: Rose Red Craft Ink, So Saffron Craft Ink, Whisper White Craft Ink
Accessories: Styled Silver Hodgepodge hardware, 5-petal flower punch, small oval punch, 3/16" corner rounder, mat pack, paper piercer, Iridescent Ice EP, Crystal Clear EP

Joy Fold Invites

Last night I had a lot of fun stamping with my friend. We came up with this simple layout so that we could make a lot of them. This is for a Bridal Shower. The Groovy Guava piece lifts up from behind the flower and the bottom part with the Designer Paper lifts down to reveal the invitation. I am sorry but I didn't get a view of the inside for you but it turned out to be a nice and quick card to do.

Stamp Sets: Year After Year
Paper: DSP Ginger Blossom, Ruby Red, Groovy Guava, River Rock, Very Vanilla
Ink: Ruby Red, Groovy Guava, River Rock, Basic Black
Accessories: 5-Petal Punch, Boho Blossom Punch, Silver Brads, Blender Pen

Not in the Groove

I am so sorry, I have been MIA for a LONG time. We went on a trip to go to my cousins wedding and my family was in town for a while. Anyway, these are some projects I did a while back for a friend. They look really similar I know but the colors she asked for were orange and Navy, and orange and black. She is giving them to some graduates this year with either some money or a gift card. What a great idea!
