Color Throwdown #487

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


This week we're playing with red, pink, and mint.



 So, I used PTI's mint julep color- isn't it funny how the mint is a shade different than the inspiration pic?!?! Love these Painted Flowers from Altenew and the "swirl" was die cut with a MFT die. 

Some inspiration...

Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop April- #1

It's time for 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 Miriam Napier's blog but, if you got lost along the way I have a full list below. I have a kinda' clean and simple card for you today.



So I played with this month's 50% off Stamp of the Month- Morning Glory. The image was stamped onto PTI select white and colored with copics. Then I die cut the Happy (Happy die) and Spring (from the Seasons dies) three times each with a heavier white and black. I offset the black a little.

Looking for some awesome inspiration?   

Welcome to Bonnie Klass who is joining us as a Guest Desginer today- thrilled to have you playing along!!


AND... there are always prizes. One random comment 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!!


Have a great day... hugs, Vickie!!

Color Throwdown #485

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 coral, black, and white!! Love this pic and these colors (well, I always do!)
