I started with the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper, which is lightweight and comes 24 sheets to a package. It's great for layering and all kinds of other fun things.

TGIFC136 - Color Scheme


Hello and welcome back! It's time for a color challenge this week at the TGIF Challenges blog. It's a color combo that lends itself to holiday projects, so I created a set of Christmas tags.

Last week's challenge was about the ombre technique, so I decided to use that too. Did you see the projects last week? They were amazing, weren't they?

TGIFC130 - Theme Challenge

Hello and welcome back! It's time for this week's TGIF Challenge, and our theme challenge this week is Sweater Weather. I love autumn. It's my favorite season, maybe because my birthday is in September? I just love all the beautiful color, the opportunity to put on some cozy sweaters and to drink pumpkin lattes.

I decided this was a great project to play with the Pick a Pumpkin Stamp Set and Patterned Pumpkins Dies. The background is a piece of watercolor paper that I spritzed with Pool Party ink and then dripped on Soft Sky ink using an Aqua Painter. I used So Saffron to cut the sprigs from, and Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie and Very Vanilla for the pumpkins and curls. I used the orange watercolor patterned paper from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper cut with the Stitched Shapes Dies to ground the shapes with.

Here is my card for this week. I just love the Glamper Greetings Stamp Set. It has images to dress up the camper for several different seasons and occasions. I set my camper in an autumn scene, and followed the color scheme of the pretty Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. I stamped the images in Black Stazon ink, and then used a blender pen to add ink and blur the solid stamped images.
