Color Inspiration Challenge – Update

please check out my new color challenge on Paper Therapy
I hope you will participate!

Here is my take on the sketch.

I used a Rubbernecker Stamp called Belle, She was colored in with my Prisma Pencils and the blender, I used my spellbinders (brown zebra print) and my cuttlebug embossing folder (on the black part). I still need to add a sentiment but I will wait till an occasion arrives.

thank you. I hope you will try this challenge too!


Thank you Cards

Details: These are the Thank you cards I made for my family for the Christmas presents they sent to my family. I made them with the cuttlebug folder (forget the name) and I used various color chalks to fill it in. I cut the scallops with SCAL – (Sure Cuts Alot) with my cricut.

Simple but elegant.

Sitting with Bear Sugar Nellie Card

Ok I tried another sugar nellie tonight with my new Leaf Branch Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. I am trying to be different. LOL So this time I used a peachy colored base, with matching prima flowers.

Isnt she a pretty girl, the stamp? I decided she had to be a blonde, bright blonde, since I am a brunette she had to be opposite me. I again used my Koh I noor pencils and just kept it simple. No sentiment or ribbon this time. I did use my black stickles on the center of the brad on the flower. It gives it a little bling so the card isnt too plain. Not all cards need a sentiment on the front, right?

Cardstock: Mix of Bazzill and Stampin up
Stamps: Sugar Nellie – Sitting with Bear
Ink: Palette
Accessories: Koor I Noor, Cuttlebug, Cuttlebug embossing folders, Prima flowers, Black and Cotton Candy Stickles, Pebbles Chalk and Q tips.

First I stamped my imaged, colored her in with my pencils, then use a nesties die to cut her out in a nice shape.
Next I made my cuttlebug sandwhich (YUMMY) She is sitting inside the embossing folder, Make sure you put the image up so the embossed part is raised and not sunken.


There she is after being smooshed! 🙂 She looks great!

Gather your supplies. Add chalk, I use a Q tip and have a eraser near by for mistakes. You can use a chalk spray after wards to keep the chalk in its place.

Finished Card – I added Cotton Candy Stickles on the outside of the nesties circle for a little pizazz.

Pen Pal Sugar Nellie

Details: This is the first time I tried this technique. I dont know what it is called but I saw it out there on somes blog.

I stamped Pen Pal onto white cardstock colored her in with my yummy KOR I NOOR pencils and then i ran her through the cuttlebug with on of my embossing folders. I used some chalk to outline the swirls in the embossing. I hope it looks ok? I am not sure if I absolutely love it or not.
