Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge

I happened upon this challenge, I love this color combo, I love Papertrey Ink, and the challenge closes in a couple hours. I love a good challenge!  (haha) It's the  Papertrey Ink May 2012 Blog Hop and I am glad I was able to get my card done in time to be part of this fun event.

And in the words of Nichole at Papertrey the challenge is: "This months inspiration is a unique color scheme that has been popping up everywhere this spring.  A bright green (Simply Chartreuse or New Leaf) paired with bold black & white patterns.  Think gingham, argyle, checks or stripes.  Really mix things up and enjoy the creative process!"

So, my card is pretty much CAS and I used Papertrey white card stock. I love how the ink looks on this paper. It is beautiful and just soaks in perfectly. I also used Papertrey Mehndi Medallion Stamp Set. The green ink is Stampin Up as is the matching ribbon. The sentiment is from SU as well. 

Runway Inspired Challenge #12 Card 2

I made two more cards for the Runway Challenge - you can check it out at RIC#12 - Tsumori Chisato.

I made these two thank you cards and I love how they turned out. I even embossed some white card stock for inside the card, just a tiny piece of the corner so it tied into the front of the card. It looked so cute. I forgot to take a picture and they are already in the mail. This card was so easy to make and I think I will make a set like this for my mother-in-law for her birthday.
I like the colorful ribbon on the first card because it is kind of like the burst of color at the top of her dress... 

...and with just a softer ribbon. 


Thanks for visiting my blog.

Runway Inspired Challenge #12 CARDS

Another Runway Challenge - you can see all the wonderful DT cards at ric#12 - Tsumori Chisato and of course the inspiration is this wonderful runway model:


So, what's a gal to do? I see butterfly wings. I see coral, a smidge of soft green, and a smidge yellow. Now, I do see other colors but I am stopping at those three.
I'd love to get a close up of her shoes - they seem a little funky. So I went to Style's site and looked at all the models in this particular fashion show. All the shoes were funky!
                                                              You can see it here and judge for yourself!

And now this is the cards I made: 

I actually punched through the whole card and then when I backed the card with card stock I tucked in the coral for one butterfly and yellow for another.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look. Have an enjoyable weekend.

Embellish Color Challenge - Bicycles

Isn't this a great picture? It just makes me want to go out and buy a, 
I did - a bike stamp. I had to look around for one, but I found it! I always 
wanted one but other stamps and etc got in the way. 

The Embellish challenge requires the use of a bicycle and four colors - blue, orange, purple, and yellow. Do with it what you will. I can't tell you how many times I stamped this bicycle last night. Or, how many times I played with the saying. I have a good friend that is leaving on a trip today and so I knew I would be making this card for her. Have a good trip...I'll miss you...have a fun ride... My friend is going on a long trip so "Enjoy the Journey" seemed right. 

Cardstock: PTI (white) - love this paper!
Stamps: Recollections - Bicycle, Martha Stewart - lettering
Ink: Stampin Up - Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Concord Crush, Daffodil   Delight
Eyelets: Making Memories
