Kwerner color inspiration #33

Time for another color inspiration. Colors this week are chocolate chip, pumpkin pie, taken with teal, certainly celery and whisper white.
So you can see the chocolate chip background, certainly celery mat behind my image. This is one of my favorite stamps, she is a Hanna Stamp. I used the technique for the stamp that I believe is the paper doll technique. Anyway you stamp your image on several different papers then cut out each area and paste to the image that is stamped on whisper white. I hope that makes since hahaha. Well here is my submission, I hope you like it.

Color Inspiration #31

Time again for another kwerner color inspiration. I decided this week to do a scrapbook page because I am sooooo behind on them. This is a page about my little Brock. Yes the same Brock that turned 8 last week. Hahahaha, he is like 2 in these pics, yep that's how behind I am. Anyway I am glad I am 1 page less behind now. I am pleased with how this turned out, and pretty proud of my self that I was able to get Elegant Eggplant on a cowboy page. So here is the break down, the background paper is so saffron, the mat and the fringe are close to cocoa. There is pumpkin pie on the rub on cowboy and the 'cowboy up' chip board and also the stitches on the side of the main pic. Ribbon is whisper white with elegant eggplant x's and also an elegant eggplant mat on the main pic. I think that is all of it, and as always, Thanks for visiting!
P.S. You can see the colors and accents tons better if you click on the picture and view it really big.

Wednesday, November 5, 2008 Color Inspiration #29

Is it just me, or do these colors get harder every week?
Maybe I need to take a week off, I don't know. Anyway the colors for this week are Pacific Point which is the dotted lines and the star brads. Taken with Teal, lined paper. By the way all of these are paper pieces that where together on a 12 x 12 by Cosmo Cricut. OK next was Elegant Eggplant which is the ribbon. Pumpkin Pie is on the 'You Are' words and mat. And last was whisper white which you can see is all over. It ended up being a very simple card, no stamping or ink involved at all, just paper, ribbon and some dimensionals. ENJOY!

Color Inspiration #28

So this is one of those cards that takes on a life of it's own. These colors were a challenge for me, and I am not hugely happy about how it turned out. But I got it done in time to post, so here it is.

Thank you!

So it was my birthday yesterday and I made my thank you cards today for everyone. And I loved the way this one turned out so I wanted to post it. I am hoping the person I sent it to doesn't come to the blog before she gets it. But I love this card because of this new stamp. Guess where I got the Dollar Store! Can you believe it. So I stamped it twice on white card stock with black ink and then embossed it in clear. Then colored both with the watercolor technique. Then just cut them out and adhered one completely to the front of the card, the second one is attached on top of the other but only at the body, so I could get the dimension. I'm sure it is pretty self explanatory from the picture, I am just excited it turned out so good.

Here is my card for kwerner's color inspiration. The only limit this week was to use any member of the RED family as your main color. I LOVE RED! I think it is my mom's fault LOL. When I was growing up, everytime I would wear anything red she would tell me how good it looked :). Anyway I got this new Sarah Kay stamp from and I couldn't wait to use her. Isn't she cute. To color her I just used my water pen, so simple, and then it is hard to see in this photo but I used dimensionals to elevated the girl. I stamped the 'Happy Hoildays' in a dark red and then embossed it with irradesent glitter. That's about it. Hope you like it.

Here is my entry for the kwerner color inspiration #26. It is very simple this week. Hubby has been off work so not alot of me time. Background is So Saffron with the Wild Wasabi band that I punched with the corner rounder and a 1/8 inch hole punch. Ribbon is Bashful Blue. Flower is Red Rose with a Whisper White button. Like I said nothing to fancy this week.
I'm Dreaming of a white Christmas......... BUT NOT IN OCTOBER! This is what we woke up to Saturday morning (Oct. 11). Luckly it really didn't last long, it was mostly melted by the afternoon. Except for the GIANT snow ball that Laith had rolled. It was about 3 1/2 feet tall.

Here is another Color Inspiration From Kwerner. The bird is water colored in Ballet Blue, the sentiment is stamped in Ruby Red and matted with So Saffron. The ribbon in also Ruby Red, and the flourishes are stamped in Certainly Celery. The card was made from a clear transparency cut at 4 X 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4.

O.K. so this is my very first color challenge so go easy on me. I really liked working with these colors. And if I am honest the thought of Kristina Werner possibly visiting MY blog is sooo exciting (and it kinda freaks me out a little too LOL). Anyway I hope you like my card it is very simple as you can see. It is a standard size card in the chocolate chip with the kiwi kiss torn along the bottom, the flourish is stamped in kiwi kiss and embossed clear. The little pumpkin (in pumkin pie) was cut out with my cricut, using the doodle charms cart, cut at 2 1/2". The scollop at the top is my new Martha Stewart border punch, I LOVE IT! That is punched in the very vanilla. K so there it is everyone wish me luck on my first attempt. :)
This is a tri-fold card. Here is the link to Dawn's video with instructions and dimensions. The other pictures show the cards close up and the inside of the cupcake card. These are so simple and quick to make. Enjoy!

OK So these little boxes are so cute and so easy I made another one this morning and wanted to share it. The paper is Bo Bunny, Daisy Bucket Designs and Basic Grey. The stamp set is Hero Arts.
The cards are 3x3. Thanks for stopping by.

These cards turned out so cute. I wish the picture would have turned out better. The cards are 3x3 and then I made this little box for the cards to store in.

I found this CUTE little notebooks at the dollar store. they were in packages of 4 so you get 4 for a dollar. These would make cute and easy teacher gifts. Anyway I just wrapped the designer paper all the way around the notebook and then decorated the front. You can see the notebook in the middle is how they come from the store. On the red one I did stamp a thank you message inside the cover.
Kristina Werner-- did this technique that I used on the hearts of this card. You stamp your image in versamark and using a dauber you color over the versamark with different colors of ink. I will add the link at the bottom of this post for the video that she uses it on....very cool!

This is my version of dawns pop up card. I made it for a friend (happy B-Day Jenn). Here is the link to Dawns video with the instructions of how to make it.

This is a card I made that was similar to the MACM on youtube. I started with black card stock and embossed the dots with white powder. I also clear embossed the "enjoys" on the green. The stickers are the felt letters and they started out white so I used a dauber and orange ink to change the color.
