Stamp Off Beautiful You Color Challenge

Hello and happy Friday!  Susan, Buffy and I are
locked and loaded for another Stamp Off Challenge!
 This week, we are doing a color challenge, offered by
Susan.  She picks such wonderful color combinations!!
You saw a "preview" card for this challenge yesterday,
when I used the same colors with the Cool Treats set.

I know that I use the Beautiful You set, on page 24 of the Occasions Mini, a lot.  I can't help it!  I love this set.  I wanted to watercolor
these beautiful color suggestions.   I used a layer of
the 2016-18 In Color Designer Series Paper,
Gold Sequin Trim (p 178) and 5/8 inch Burlap Ribbon
to embellish this card.
For the focal image, I stamped the girl in Island Indigo,
then water colored the dress with Pool Party.  
Next, I then masked all but the
dress and stamped it with Awesomely Artistic on page 144
creating the dress pattern.   Finally, I outlined the image
with Smoky Slate.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Now please check out
the challenge samples offered by Buffy and Susan!

Cool Treats with Frozen Treats Dies

Tomorrow is our weekly Stamp Off Challenge.
I always make a couple cards and then try to decide
which to use for the challenge.
Friday's challenge is a color challenge (check in
Friday to see which colors) and this is my "runner up"
card.  I totally enjoy the Cool Treats set on page 33
of the Occasions Mini.  It helps that they have a
coordinating set of Framelit Dies (Frozen Treats).
This is a very nostalgic product bundle for me, because
as kids, we loved things like push-ups and ice cream bars.
The two step stamped images make very realistic
looking ice cream products!

Sooo, please stop back tomorrow to see my Stamp Off
Challenge card with Buffy and Susan.

Sealed with Love

As valentines approaches, I guess that I had better post
a couple appropriate cards!  This is another card that I made while
having a "play date" with stamping friends. 
 I'm not really a "heart" person,
so I guess that I am a little like my mother.  Sentimental...
but only to a point.   This card was made with the Sealed
with Love set and coordinating Love Notes Framelits
Dies on pages 14-15 of the Occasions Mini.  I do like
the fact that you have lots of hearts and arrows to play with.
