Color Challenge!

Hello all
Another Tuesday morning color challenge at SCS ! And boy what a challenge this one was!
The colors that were chosen sent met to thinking for a while! Orchid Opulence Certainly Celery and Pumpkin Pie. I would never in a millions years put these three colors together. At least not voluntarily. LOL

So when the challenge get tough the tough reach for Stampin Up's Heartfelt Thanks stamp set!
It is my Superhero set. It has the ability to make any color combo or layout come out looking good.

I stamped the middle image first then stamped off to create the lighter shaded flowers on the sides.
I used a button on the corner and folded back the edge. Super simple! Super easy!

What I used.
Stampin up Papers - Orchid opulence, certainly celery, and pumpkin pie and the matching inks.
Button and the Hearfelt stamp set.

Featured Stamper on Splitcoast

I tried something new with my phot size so that my page will load quicker. You should be able to click on it for a larger image.

This was made for the featured stamper challenge on Splitcoast
Betty aka gbedwright was the lucky stamper. Check out her gallery it is awesome. The card I chose can be found in her gallery here
Her image on the card is a hoot!!
In the challenge you are to change a few things and give credit to the original designer.
I chose to change the colors, the image and the placement of the sentiment.

Thanks for looking I was going to post some more but my fingers are all asleep AGAIN! which make typing a bit tricky. I should probably get that checked sometime.

Thanks for looking!

Playing with new banners!

So what do you think?

I am finally trying new banners. I made this really quick one tonight waiting for Jacob to get home from snowboarding with the school.
I am going to have to play until I find just the right one!

Let me know what you think!

Behind again!!

This card was made using a new technique, Ink spray and smash that I found on the Splitcoast challenge forum. Markies Mom on SCS. uses it all the time and her stuff is AMAZING. Check her out. You will not be sorry!
A tutorial can be found on her blog here. I was really going for a different look but when I tried to speed up the dry time the strange squiggles appeared so I had to go with a water scene!
I have been playing on SCS in the challenges forum but have neglected to post them here. What a dope!! I was just notified that my Close to my Heart order is in!! Yippee! I can't wait to play with my new stuff! I ordered some great papers and a a time stamp for a an album I have in mind!

I will post other challenges later!
Thanks for stopping by.

Im Back!!!

Ok I will admit it I have been missing in action due to a grieving period for my beloved Patriots.
Here is where I am supposed to be a good sport and not feel bad about the other team but I just cant. Not yet, It is going to take time lots and lots of time!

I always seem to be a day off on the challenges at Splitcoast
But here is my color combo challenge. I was afraid at first. It is a scheme that I normally would never think of. Hey maybe that is why it is called a challenge! LOL

Anyway this is what I came up with.
