Color Throwdown #435


Good Morning- Happy, Happy Wednesday!! It's time for another set of colors at the Color Throwdown!! This week the colors were chosen by Jodi. 

This week we're playing with orange, turquoise and yellow.



How fun is that entryway!! Wish I had something like that at my house :-)



Still playing with sets that haven't seen any ink yet! I am a BIG reader- every night to be exact!! So when MFT came out with this Our Story set- of course I had to have it. I went a little bright with these colors. The patterned paper is from MFT also- new black/white pack and Proper Pinstripes pack. 

Some inspiration...

Color Throwdown #434

Good Morning- Happy, Happy Wednesday!! It's time for another set of colors at the Color Throwdown!! This week the colors were chosen by Amy Rohl. 

This week we're playing with green, black, and gold.



Yep, perfect card and perfect colors for a St. Patty's week!!

So, I have a little Irish in my family and grew up when I was young in the Chicago area... did you know they die the river green for St. Patty's.... yes, there are a lot of Irish Catholics around Chicago!!

And, yes, I had to make one more St. Patty's card. Watercolored the background and splashed some gold paint on top. The panel was cut with a new Serendipity card die- also the shamrock. Sentiment is from a Verve set.

Some inspiration...

Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop

Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop! We're changing it up this year- there will be two hops each month as usual and there will be opportunities to win $ to purchase Serendipity Stamps. The design team will be showing you the latest products and offering a chance for you to win some goodies from Serendipity Stamps.

You should have arrived here from Julie's blog but, if you got lost along the way I have a full list below.  

I have one card for you today....


Spring sprung here in the south.... until this Saturday night/Sunday morning when we got 2 inches of snow... that's right only 2 inches and.... when the sun came out it was gone before the end of the afternoon. It did look gorgeous coming down though!!

So, when I made this card I was in the spring mode. Used the new background- Swirl Cuts and die cut in white. Then I added a rounded panel with the sweet Chick with Butterfly (just so you know- the butterfly is attached to that sweet chick and I did a little surgery- yikes, I know- rarely cut up stamps but, I wanted that sweet butterfly up a little higher in the air). The images were colored with copics, added the Happy Spring sentiment, and a little twine to finish it off.  

Looking for some awesome inspiration?   


AND... there are always prizes. One random commentor along the hop will receive a $20 gift code to the Serendipity Stamps store. You have from today until Sunday to leave your comments. Mary will announce the winner on the Serendipity Stamps blog on Monday!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!

Color Throwdown #433

Good Morning- Happy, Happy Wednesday!! It's time for another set of colors at the Color Throwdown!! This week the colors were chosen by Broni. 

This week we're playing with green, blue, and white.



Love that blue door with all the greenery!!


I played with MFTs Beautiful Butterflies latest kit. Added a little modeling paste inside MFTs Mini Chicken Wire stencil and set aside to dry. Meanwhile I die cut the leaves with MFTs Wild Greenery and the Butterflies were die cut and stamped with the kit. The sentiment from the kit was added last.

Color Throwdown #432

Good Morning- Happy, Happy Wednesday!! It's time for another set of colors at the Color Throwdown!! This week the colors were chosen by Wanda. 

This week we're playing with green, yellow, red, and aqua.



How fun is that pic!! Wish I was there right now!!



I played with some new stamps from The Ton....Shoe Wardrobe!! Isn't that sentiment fun!! I have been known to collect shoes in my life. When my youngest was little and had her "100" day at school, she had to count something to 100 at home.... "turns red" it was my shoes!! Now that we are a few years later, I don't have as many- can't do the heels but, I may have a few pairs of sandals (beach, ya know!!)
