Every Moment Wasabi Saffron

WOW!  Where has the week gone!  I went back to work this week,
so that might be it. Here's another Every Moment card. 
Had to do a "yellow" card in honor of my burned lawn. 

The sentiment is from the Fabulous Phrases set.
The colors are So Saffron, Real Red and Wild Wasabi with
an aqua painter used to color in the flower
(outlined with gray watercolor pencil).

The Elegant Lines Big Shot folder was used to add texture to the 
Wild Wasabi layer.  Pearls were added "just for fun"!  The pearls work
really well when used in conjunction with vanilla or watercolor paper.

Owl Punch T-Shirt

Thought that I'd change things up from watercoloring.

This little owl punch is just the cutest thing.  For this project, 
I paired the punch owl with the Smarty Pants set to make
a T-shirt card.   The owl works back to the branch from the 2 Step Bird punch.
The neckline and arm holes are made with circle punches.

The colors for this project are Crumb Cake, Wild Wasabi, Marina Mist, 
Early Espresso and the Marina Mist DSP from the Subtles Paper Pack.

I hope that you enjoy this little guy.

Every Moment 3x3 Flower

This is an Every Moment (page 118) 3x3 gift card that is very quick and easy.
The colors are Delightful Daffodil, Old Olive and Cajun Craze.
I didn't have any Daffodil ribbon, so I colored white 3/8" Taffeta ribbon
with my Daffodil marker.  You just need to let it dry before attaching to your card.
The Old Olive layer was edged with the Eyelet Border Punch (page 201).

You can attach this to a gift, in place of, or in conjunction with a bow.

Deck the Halls Fabric Christmas

This card is an entry for Shelli Gardner's All Things New Creative Challenge.

Most of the products for this card come from the upcoming Holiday Mini.

The Crumb Cake card base and Real Red layers were dry embossed with the 
Northern Flurry Big Shot Embossing Folder.

The Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive was applied to the Deck the Halls Designer Fabric,
so that it could be cut and attached to the card.  The scalloped panel was made
with the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die.  The letters for "Joy" were made
with the Timeless Type Big Shot Alphabet on page 212 and applied to 
a scallop punched from the new 2 3/8" punch.
The strip of red and vanilla fabric was rolled and accented with Pearls.
Nothing like Christmas in August!


Every Moment 3 Flowers

Again, with my new fav set, Every Moment.  In this example, I 
stamped the flower 3 times with Black Stazon ink and then colored them with
Always Artichoke (Watercolor Crayon), Not Quite Navy and Rich Razzleberry.

The butterfly was colored with the Artichoke and River Rock.

The "Sweet" sentiment comes from the Fabulous Phrases set on page 149.
I cut "sweet" out with the Medium Jewelry Punch and tied it to the 
focal image with linen thread.   This focal image was cut out with the 
NEW Scallop Squares Duo Big Shot Die that will be released September 1st,
in the new Holiday Mini.   It pairs so nicely with the Scallop Square Die 
on page 207 of the main catty.

The Artichoke layer on the card base was dry embossed with the
Big Shot Elegant Lines embossing folder.

Sorry, I just love our pearls!!

I hope that you enjoy!
