Seize the Sketch #18

Hi There,
I am playing in the Seize the Sketch Challenge #18 today.  The inspiration:
I was also inspired by this beautiful card, from Vicky Dutcher, I had Pinned a while back.
I just love the colors,  teal and green is my favorite color combination,   I am always drawn to it.  
My card, again:  I snuck a little bling in there too.
Thanks for stopping by, Ang

Waltzingmouse Fanatics (I hope)


Today I am, hopefully, participating in the challenge over at the Waltzingmouse Fanatics Website. I say hopefully because my card does not exactly match the sketch.   I made my card a few hours after looking at the challenge and thought there were three boxes along the bottom.  Finished my card, went to post and realized there are four boxes!  I couldn't have fit 4 of my images anyway, so I hope my card will be acceptable.
 I just love these Little Lanterns from Waltzing Mouse Stamps.   I embossed them with SU Pewter EP.  Love that stuff too.

 Thanks for visiting! Ang

Seize the Sketch.

Hi Everyone,. It is a beautiful Saturday her in the SF Bay area.  Love it. (sorry if you are dealing with bad weather) Today I am participating in  Seize the Sketch #17. Here is the sketch inspiration. I had planned on participating in the Waltzingmouse challenge also, but reread the requirements and my card doesn't really fit. I only have one WMS set with sentiments.   Oh, well. Here is my card again:  Can you tell I love color?  I own a lot of scrap-booking supplies, especially patterned paper.  Maybe 5% has pastel colors.  I am just drawn to bright colors.  Remember when we all had our colors done?  Wow, I am really dating myself. It was the early 80s, I think.   I was called a winter; dark hair, fair skin.  I already knew that bright colors work best for me.  I don't think I own any pastel colored clothing either.   A little embossing and shine with my WMS Funky Flowers, that I love. Thanks for stopping by! Ang

House of Cards. Is it April already?

I can't believe it is already time for the HOC April Challenge.   Wasn't it just new years? Anyway, this month we have a sketch for you at HOC:

I wanted to play with some new Avery Elle stamps and dies.  I love this set, Bottle it Up.  My card is a little shabby; I wasn't so sure about the vintage part of my assignment.  I figured, we had terrariums when I was a kid and I am "vintage".  So, I am calling it good.
I popped up the top layer.  You can't really see it in the photo, but I added a clear sheet behind the die cut to look like glass.  I also gave the inside of the image a little spray.  A little bit of cork for the top. I love the font on this set, there are several basic sentiments in it.
Pop on over to HOC and join us this month.  It's a lot of fun!
