Paper Players 165

This week The Paper Players Challenge is Tic Tac Toe. 
If you scroll down some you will see the tic tac toe board. For my card I chose right across the middle --
Patterned Paper, Embossing & Any Shade of Blue. I also through in some pearls from the middle bottom. 

 The patterned papers are from Stampin' Up! The blue cs is from Close to My Heart.

Below you can see the pearls a little better.

 My stamps are from Chocolate Baroque. Love their stamps!!!
The scene stamp was stamped in Versa Mark onto the blue cs and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Same thing for the sentiment. Yes I am in full swing on Christmas card making. I am so excited for cooler weather.
I have a Christmas/Winter card swap going on my FaceBook so if you'd like to join in the swap just (e-mail me) and I'll add you to the swap.

Bewitched

That's who she reminds me of. Or even Nicole Kidman playing at Bewitched. So if you look at the two images below you will see a big difference!
When I started my intention was for the background image to stay clear (no coloring). So that's what I did. Then some color seeped into her stockings and the pumpkin. Oh and her broom! Then I just walked away.


That was yesterday. So today, I keep looking and I am not altogether thrilled at how she looks. Sooo, I ended up with this.
NOTE: If you are wondering about the paper she is stamped on, it's a piece of my Gelli Art Print. I just stamped the image on and cut around. Then colored with Copics.

I'm still not sure which one I like better. You be the judge.

Oh and if you are my friend on FaceBook, I am running a little Christmas/Winter themed card swap. P.M. me or Just POST in the comments you'd like to join in the fun.

I love that you visit. COMMENTS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!

All stamps are from Unity Stamp Co.

JFF


Today I just wanted to create something fun. However, I didn't realize how time consuming it was going to be. Believe me when I say this could easily be a 3 hour project.

I started with the Double Door Template from Lynn Pratt
The fireplace is a digi from DoverPublications.
DSP from Theresa Collins - Noel paper pack.
The image is colored with Spectrum Noir and Copics.

RCSFYTT4

Reverse Confetti Sketch For You To Try #4 - I'm new to Reverse Confetti and Fetti Finds. But then, so are they! LOL I love this set of stamps from RC. I used the feather from this set on a previous card and it's just stunning. These stamps are the first I've come across that didn't need any prep BEFORE stamping. You guys know what I mean? You know how normally there's a film of some sort on the stamps so the manufacturers always tell you to use an eraser or some even say a little emory board to clean the surface before you stamp. Well, let me tell you, I went directly from package to ink to paper with these beauties and they all stamped perfectly FIRST TIME!!!
Give them a try. I'm sure you will fall in love with them too!

Now for the deets on my card: I chose some of SU! Christmas dsp from last year to work with. The dies used are from Spellbinders Nestabilities Card Creator A - 2 Fancy Ribbon Threader. It's really fun to work with and yes you can truly thread ribbon through the slots. The Stamps are Reverse Confetti from the Peacock Pretties set found HERE. Yes I have added some SU! glitter glue.

JFF

I sort of DARED myself with this one. I saw something similar on Pinterest. Only the sample was much lighter in color. More of a misty winter day. Mine is more fall like in feel. I used Tsukineko Versafine inks, Post-It notes, and stamps from SU!, Deadbeat Designs, and Stampabilities to create my scene.

Hope you enjoy looking and are inspired to give it a try. If you have any questions feel free to post them in the comments. As I have comment monitoring I can answer quite quickly.

Easel Card JFF

I just finished this one and it is 1:20 a.m. I think I started it at 11:00 p.m. LOL
Thanks sooo much to my friend Laurel Kingston Kerr for die cutting all the elements and shipping them to me from Australia. It sure was a challenge Loz trying to get it all put together and I am asking your opinion on how it turned out. Personally, I'm thrilled with it!
This is a triple easel card and I think Pam Sparks for her tutorial on how to put the easel base together.

Now my crafty friends I am off to bed. Nigh Nigh.

CTD258MOJO309

This one is for Color Throw Down #258 and MOJO MONDAY @ Verve #309 ---
I incorporated the sketch for the Verve challenge along with the color palette from the Throw Down.
Chocolate Chip
Sage Shadow
Kiwi Kiss
Old Olive
Whisper White.

The stencil is from Layers of Color. I daubed Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip and Old Olive onto my Whisper White using the stencil. However, I should have planned my layout situation a little better as you can't see the Sage Shadow. I stamped SU En Francais onto Old Olive dsp and matted with a piece of Chocolate Chip CS. I stamped my focal image which is this week's Stamp of the Week from Unity Stamp Co.  I stamped it twice and punched out one of them to layer on top of my ribbon. My ribbon was white so I colored with the Sage Shadow.

ColourQ205


COLOURQ #205 -



My stamps are Close to My Heart Classy Doily Flair (B1424), Stampin' Up! Papaya Collage (126612) and Pursuit of Happiness (121970).
I have to say this color combo did not appeal to me right away. In fact it wasn't until my card was complete that I decided I liked the color combo. Just sayin', don't poo poo something until you've given it your best shot. Think outside you the box - as everyone seems to be saying these days. I did and I liked it. So may you.

Lavinia7

Lavinia Challenge #7 -- Add a Flower
I chose one of the fairies watering her garden for my image. It's a digital image and I printed it onto glossy photo paper and colored with my Copics. I'm so pleased with the way she turned out. When I first looked at the image I didn't know what I was going to do. Then I started coloring the fairy and the rest just fell into place. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! and when my coloring was complete I added some Ranger pearl paints to it.

I have only just found Lavinia stamps. But I think I will be a "frequent flyer". Pun intended. If you'd like to play along with Lavinia's challenge you can find it on her blog HERE. If you'd like to purchase some of her lovely whimsical stamps you can do that HERE.
