SSCB #33- Twine!

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday!! Welcome to the next installment of the this month's challenge at Serendipity Stamps!


This month we are playing with twine!! Our sponsor this month is  The Twinery... in love!!


The DT continue to have an extra challenge- last time we focused on "hot" so... now, it's all about  "cool"....lemonade, cool colors, outdoor activities... boats... water... etc.  I decided to play with this sweet image.... Reminds me of when I was young and the sprinkler was running{(not as expensive as it is now..water bill :)} We played in bathing suits or summer clothes and ran through the sprinkler until we were soaking wet!! Good Times!!

Stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto watercolor cardstock and heat embossed with clear. Out came the waterbrush to add color. Made a subtle cloud background using MFT cloud dies sponging with soft sky. The sun uses the outer layer from the Sunflower diecut {Julie inspired me} Added a clear button strung with twine from The Twinery

Color Throwdown #299- Wish Big!!

Happy Wednesday and time for another Color combo at CTD!! This week the colors were chosen by Tammy and I LOVE them!!


Look at all that goodness!!

I had some fun coloring a Mo Manning image that I won at my sweet friend Kim O'Connell's blog. I have had this image for forever!! The background was stamped with an image from Verve's Bountiful Backgrounds (love this set soo much- actually had to replace it recently) using versamark. The sentiment is from Verve's Birthday Phrases.

Our July Guest Designer is Diane Jaquay from Peaceful Lane.

This week's Guest Star Stamper is Vicki Dutchert - All I Do is Stamp. 

So happy to have you both playing with us!!

Serendipity Stamps Challenge #33- Twine!

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday!! Welcome to the next challenge at Serendipity Stamps!


This month we are playing with twine!!

Our Sponsor this month is The Twinery and the winner will receive a free sampler pack of twine.... Whoo Hooo!!
Here's my card....
 
As always, the DT are given a little extra challenge- HOT (hot outside, hot glue, hot trends, hot colors....) I chose to ink up and color this Geranium in red (hot color). Stamped it twice on XPress It Blending cardstock and colored with copics. Fussy cut some leaves and flowers from one of the images and popped them on top of the original image for a little dimension. Look closely at a few of the flower centers- yep, that's twine from The Twinery!! The border is Serendipity's Floral Frame and Embelishments- it cuts beautifully!!

AND... we have special guests joining us this week...
