Floating Leaves - PPWCMD03, HYCCT1402

This card was made for two challenges.  The first one was for the Power Poppy blog.  It was World Card Making Day and the gals at Power Poppy gave us four challenges.  This was challenge number 3 to pick a challenge from SCS Hope you can count on.  I picked something that floats and that would be leaves.  If you ever notice, there are pink and orange color leaves.  I love the maples.  Thanks for looking.  :>)

PPWCMD01 - Power Poppies Monochromatic Azaleas...

This card was made for a challenge over at the Power Poppy blog.  Today is World Card Making Day and Power Poppy has four challenges for us today.  This first one was a challenge where we selected a tutorial that was given on their blog.  I chose Julie Koerber's  Tutorial of making a monochromatic card.  This technique was a little different for me.  I used an aqua pen and a blender pen to color it.  I did not have two light colored copic markers in these shades so opted out of that part.  Zip on over to the Power Poppy blog.  They have gorgeous images and fun challenges.

Fall Harvest...

I recently purchased this image by Penny Black.  I thought it to be a beautiful fall display.  I used prisma colored pencils and some gamsol.  I added raffia and a sentiment.  Thanks for looking.  I hope you are enjoying the fall.

CTD311, Power Poppy, Azaleas...

This card was made for two challenges - the color throw down - #311, and for the Power Poppy Blog.  I watercolored the azaleas and then fussy cut them out.  I dry embossed on the kiwi kiss.  My neutrals were used as a background.  I dyed some white ribbon the color of the smokey slate.  I punched out a couple of circles - one of which was on designer paper.  I always enjoy doing these challenges.  Thanks so much for looking and of course for any of your comments.  :>)

cQc259, Live with Passion

This card was made for the 259th color challenge.  The colors are blackberry bliss, blushing bride, summer sun fruit, calypso coral, and white.  When I first looked at the colors I thought it was maybe a weird or difficult combination.  When I began playing with them, I thought they looked great together and were not so difficult to use after all.  Leaves can be many different colors in my mind.  I did heat embossing for all of this.  The leaves are from inkadinkado.  The sentiment is from that very popular set from pretty long ago - I think called Live with Passion. (SU)   Thanks for looking.  Why don't you play?!!  It's fun!!  :>)

Floral Grid, CTD310, SUO

This card was done for the color throw down number 310.  The colors I used were pistachio, cantaloupe, and carribean.  I watercolored the flowers that are a set from SU called Sweetbriar Rose.  The other stamps were from the SUO set French Foliage.  I wasn't sure I was into pastel colors, but I like how my card turned out.

Get Well Wishes - CC495, SC505, FLLCMagnolias

I did this card for two challenges this week:  Tuesday's color challenge with blushing bride, cajun craze, and pool party.  Dessert was our choice of green - I used artichoke.  The other challenge was the sketch challenge.  My image is the magnolia set from Flourishes.  I water colored it.  I used 2 pieces of coordinating designer papers and dry embossed on one of the circles.  I embellished with a bit of pool party ribbon.
