Gazing Ball

Stamp Sets:Define Your Life,Tropical Party and Sweet Scoops
Colors: Compliments of Just Add Ink
Tempting turquoise,rich razzleberry,kiwi kiss and white
Accessories: Bird punch,1-1/4"circle,ittybitty punch(flower),scallop-edge punch,white gel pen,shaving cream,polka dot impressions folder,scallop oval punch

I have had this thought(gazing ball) in my head for awhile now...hmmm along with so many others;)).  I love PPA and all their inspiring ideas.  This challenge was SUMMER! Nothing screams summer to me like sun,birds and flowers!
 For the gazing ball, I used the shaving cream technique,with turquoise and razzleberry re-inkers. I also outlined my bird with turquoise pen on the ball(after drying) so that the bird was looking at its reflection.

For the pedestal I used my cone from sweet scoops tuned upside down.  I used my fronds from tropical party to make grass and added some little wildflowers in razzleberry from the itty bitty punch. I used my white gel pen to highlight the flowers as well as parts of my turquoise punched bird.  The birds wing is embossed with the polka dot folder. I used the edge of scallop oval punch as a mask for my clouds. I used my markers to color in my definition and attached that to a scalloped-edge piece of razzleberry cs. All are on a whisper white card.

Remember Me Card

Stamp Set: In A Word


Srapmaster's Paradise Color Challenge

Accessories: Lg Oval Punch, 3/4"circle punch, Cog Punch, white gel pen, Island Oasis DSP

Wow! Remember Me? I have been absent from my posting world for two weeks!  I am hoping now that my son(s) baseball seasons are over, that I will be back on track! That is unless the beach calls me too often ;))  Fittingly, I have titled my card for my absence and hopeful that I will not have too much of a gap in posting ever again >:| Although with summer at the end of the week and the beach at the end of the road-who knows?? =D  I saw the sketch challenge over at Just Add Ink and thought to go with it! I was wanting to try a flower that I saw on our SU! showcase(sorry I tried to go back and find the specific creator but there are absolutely toooo many awesome ideas on there to find it:( specifically ).So, I'm hoping that my version is ok:) I think that the original creator used cs and rounded the flower to give it a more 3-d appearance,but I just loved this dotted DSP- so fun!
Anyway 8) , The base of my card is only orange-Yikes I only have 2pieces left :s.  I punched 5 circles on my sheet of DSP and then punched the ovals over them-giving me the open petal look.  Of course,you need to save every little circle scrap-there is always a use for them! I punched a cog with my new cog punch:))))))in mambo-again save your center circle! I cut a piece of the same DSP,using the opposite side,and a piece of choc chip and mambo.  I used my white gel pen and made a line of dots on the (2)mambo, around the rim of card and on the cog circle. I attached the DSP and choc chip, then created my flower by using the opposite side of my 3/4 DSP circle(scrap:)and cut my cog in half and to make the flower center. I tucked the petals under the cog ends-centering them.

I added the piece of melon mambo on top of choc chip.  Then on to my thought...I stamped "remember" in choc chip on a piece of white cs.  I colored in the me part only with my choc marker and stamped on one of the circle scraps the "me'.  I attached layers as shown


Until Next Thought~
