Kristina Werner Colour Challenge #46

031909-colors

It has been a while since I’ve had the time for a Kristina Werner Colour Challenge … and I didn’t have time today either, but I had to make time because I simply adore these colours … and the image!!

So, this is my attempt … using Eastern Blooms and Think Happy Thoughts.  I forever struggle to find the right place for good light to take my photos at home, so I have two photos!  The first, taken in morning light …

the second taken at twilight …

Here is a close up of the flower branch … I embossed the branches with black embossing powder, so it shines … in morning light …

I’m putting this card away for someone very special …

Thanks for looking 🙂

Bali Breeze Special Friend

This is a card I made last week for a very special lady I work with. My friend is always offering to help others with their work and she is a kind, smiling, tireless, hard-worker and all round great person. We couldn’t do without her! Anyway, the week before she had done something extra out-of-the-way for me and I simply had to acknowledge her kindness with a card. And this is it!

The colours I used were inspired from a colour challenge run by Alana Gallagher from The Inklings cyberstamp. They are Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Rose Red. The new Bali Breeze DSP fitted perfectly into the colour challenge!

This is a close-up of the Styled Silver hodgepodge and rhinestone brads I used … the Styled Silver just lifts a card from wow! to WOW! Don’t you think?

The stamp sets I’ve used are Life Definitions, Everyday Flexible Phrases and tucked away as stamped backgrounds on the Pumpkin Pie and Tempting Turquoise papers you’ll see a tiny bit of Eastern Blooms from the Summer Mini too!

Thanks for looking 🙂

Kristina Werner’s Colour Challenge #11

I’ve completed my second Kristina Werner Colour Challenge this weekend.  It was perfect timing to make a card because I had to make my sister-in-law’s birthday card and we’re seeing her today!  It’s always great to have some direction when making a card for someone, that’s why I love challenges!  And this was a great inspiration and challenge 🙂

The picture above was Kristina’s challenge, and this is the card I made …

I love the stripes from Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper.  Even though I have it under layers in this card, I made sure I lined the stripes up the same direction!  I also used Glossy White cardstock which gives a really crisp card.  I love it!  I embossed with versamark, Old Olive ink and clear embossing powder on the glossy white for the green “stem” and I cut my Rose Red flowers from Priceless with extra Dazzling Diamonds.  Then I coloured a flower from the Pretties Kit with my So Saffron marker pen.  A bit of grey ribbon here and some circle punches layered with Think Happy Thoughts, a half pearl from the Pretties Kit and some paper piercing with my mat pack and there you have it!

Here are a couple of close ups …

Love that half pearl!

Love the rhinestone brad in the flower’s centre too!  I hope my sister-in-law likes it 🙂

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
