(Orange, Olive & Brown)

"Fall Corn"

Sorry for the dark photo, this was taken late tonight...when I finally finished it! I have to post it tonight 'cause it's off to Vegas and Cali. tomorrow....

Card base is from (S.E.I.) "Dill Blossom" pack, one side is brown, other is orange, too perfect! I used (Spellbinder's) Classic Scalloped Border Petite S4-239 on it, and added some ribbon. "Happy Autumn" is a new saying from (JFF) B3428. I stamped it with (Memento) Tuxedo Black ink and highlighted it with (CS) Smooch: Pumpkin, Green Apple & Siren.
All edges are of course inked with (CB) Chestnut Roan. "Fall Corn Swag," is another new stamp from (JFF) E3440. For this image, I once again used my Memento ink pad, then colored it with (LA) "Twinkling H20's", *list at bottom of post. I also accented it with the Smooch colors listed above, as well as Gold Lame. The acorn top is (Copic) E29 Burnt Umber with some (CTMH) liquid glass over it.
After I had it all colored and dried, mostly, I cut it out using (Spellbinder's) Big Scalloped Oval small S4-252.

*H20's used: Sunflower, Yellow Rose, Persimmon, Orange Peel, Key Lime & Moss Green.

Hope you liked the card...I will be back for challenge #24 (hopefully) :)

(Blue, Grey & Yellow)

Crazy Cat

The actual name of the *new* JFF stamp is Kitty Power E3450...but I like Crazy Cat :)
My cat is stamped onto MME Dreamy 2 "On the Dot" paper, cut out using Spellbinder's Classic Square small S4-128, and colored with Copic markers *list below. You can't tell from the picture, but the cat is sparkly grey. I used my sliver Spica pen to trace all around the cat.
Card background is TPC Neutral Grey, on top of that I added MME Penny Lane "Robin's Egg" paper. Using Spellbinder's Classic Scalloped Inverted Square small S4-197, I cut out a "frame" on the front of the card.
Wish Big! is a *new* JFF stamp as well, it's from the Sentiment 1 sheet UMS7018. After stamping my saying I once again used a Spellbinder's die to cut out the tag. This time it's Tags Trio S3-148. Now don't quote me here...but it's my understanding that all the new "little sayings" from Just For Fun fit into these tags!!! :) awesome!
Finishing touches are ribbon, button and *jingle*bells from my stash.

*Copics used: YG09 Lettuce green, YR09 Chinese Orange, BG45 Nile Blue & Y06 Yellow

Baby Shower card

I made this for my friend Heather's baby shower. We're going to my hometown, Naturita, this weekend, for "Daphne's shower." Poor kid, the party is for her and she's not even born yet to enjoy it! :p
This is a pattern that I had to trace and cut by hand, then used my SU polka dots folder on. I added lace, buttons and ribbon to dress it up a bit.
(Orange, Brown & Yellow)

"Sunflower Seeds"

So, first reaction to these colors was "Oh no!" But luckily my new stamps I was able to make a fall card. Whew! :)

These colors are alot more vivid in person! But anyways...card base is orange, and I added green and brown as background colors. I know green wasn't one of the colors, but it needed something... This paper is all scraps from last year when I was making fall stuff, so no idea where it's from.
The sunflower stamp is one of Just For Fun's "new arrivals," G3430 Fall Floral. I stamped it twice using (Memento) Tuxedo Black, then colored it with Copic's *list at bottom. I colored all sunflowers twcie, since I cut out one set and added them using pop-up dots, to my card. "Fuzzy acents" are Flower Soft in Ivory (wheat) and Nut Brown (sunflower centers).
Sunflower seed bag is a brown paper bag that I cut to size, glued a baggy with sunflower seeds inside, and then sewed around it, to keep everything in place.
I added ribbon, hemp and a tag that I drew to the bag, 'cause it was a little plain. I used (JFF) UMS7000 Alphabet sheet to add "25 cents" to tag.
For my sign, I wrote "Sunflower Seeds," then airbrushed it with Copics and added some brads.

I am still not in the mood for Fall yet...but making this card was fun.

*Copics used: E29 Burnt Umber, YR09 Chinese Orange, Y06 Yellow, YG09 Lettuce Green & YG41 Pale Green

(Light Blue, Brown & Cream)

"Gone Fishing"

For this card, the paper I used is all (MME) "Just Dreamy 2" Dashing Dots (brown) & Delightful Unique (plaid); and "Penny Lane" Free Bird (blue).
As always edges are chalked with (CB) Chestnut Roan.
The fishing girl is from (JFF) Pin Up Girls UMS7006, and is stamped with (Memento) Tuxedo Black, so I could color it with my (Copic) markers *colors used at end of post.
My "scrabble tiles" are from (JFF) Alphabet Sheet UMS7000. I stamped them with (SU) Chocolate Chip, air brushed them with copic markers and then added the #'s (from Scrabble). They are adhered to the card with pop-up dots, so I could "weave" my fishing line (thread)through the word "Fishing." I had intended to sew around the card, but I ended up dong this at 11pm last night, and I don't see too well to sew at night, so it is what it is! :)
Finishing touches are: brads, ribbon & button from my stash.

*Cpoics used: E29 Burnt Umber, BG45 Nile Blue, E01 Pink Flamingo, Y06 Yellow & R29 Lipstick Red

Color Throwdown Challenge #100

JFF is sponsoring the 100th Color Throwdown Challenge and will be giving away a $25 gift certificate. To enter to win this and other fabulous prizes go to Color Throwdown's blog, where prizes are listed as well as the link for everyone to upload their own creations to participate in the challenge.

Now, in case you didn't know...the above colors are from Stampin' Up. Unfortunately, I do not have those paper colors; but I was able to find solid colors from Bazzill's cardstock and printed paper from Basic Grey's Euphoria line at Michaels, that I think match very well. All Just For Fun stamps used are from the Collage Unmounted Set UMS7002.

So, to start.....card is 6x6 (Bazzill) "Ruby Slipper," background stripes are (Basic Grey) "Bless," and I sticthed all around the edges. I actually dragged my sewing machine out and sewed on my card!!! I was so stressed...I cannot sew straight and I was scarred to death of messing up my paper; if I would've sewed any slower I think I would've been doing it by hand. :0

Next, I used my (Spellbinders) S5-002 Labels 10 to cut out both (B) Ruby Slipper, which I used (Stampin Up) perfect polka dot embossing folder on, and (BG) "Delirium," which I stamped (Just For Fun) "dress form" stamp onto, using (Memento) Tuxedo Black ink.

The (JFF) "hand" is stamped onto (BG) "Fields" paper and cut out. The (JFF) "Tag" is stamped onto (B) "Vibrant Blue" and cut out as well as stamped again with (JFF) "Altered."

All edges are chalked with (Color Box) Chestnut Roan. Finishing touches are: lace, ribbon, button, hemp & pearls...all from my stash of goodies that I have aquired, but have no idea where they are from! :)

Hope you like the card and will participate in the 100th Color Throwdown Challenge!!!

(Purple, Blue & Green)


I will admit right now that I do not love this card. It did not turn out the way I wanted it too, but honestly I'm too sleep deprived to care. My daughter has been sick, so I haven't slept much the past 2 days---so glad it's a long weekend! :)

So, to start...background paper & ribbon are (SU) Bermuda Bay, so is the Rich Razzleberry paper that I used Spellbinder's Ric-rac diamond petite border (S4-243) on. The green is just some solid paper I had laying around. ah..recycling! :) I also cut the border die in green and cut it in half to use as an accent. Edges are chalked in (CB) Creamy Brown.
Stamps used are (JFF CB9039) Vintage Hat cube & (JFF D2971) Wearing Hats... Stamps are colored using Copic markers *colors listed below.
Finishing touches are a hat pin made from my (SU) pretties kit, and rhinestone accents added to the card for some bling.

*copics: E01 Pink Flamingo, R29 Lipstick Red (haha, that's what I used it for)!, E29 Burnt Umber, Y06 Yellow, YG09 Lettuce Green, V17 Amethyst & BG45 Nile Blue
