Fabulous Flamingo for TGIFC#165

Hello Stampers!

How about a bright and cheery card today? This card has some of my favorite colors. I do tend to like bright, strong colors. I struggle with dark, neutral colors.

The TGIF Crew posted a really bright color challenge this week…just perfect for me.

 

Here is my card: Fabulous Flamingo for TGIFC#165

Look at all these bright colors! I was inspired by the picture as well as all the cards created by the TGIFC Team. Make sure you check out all their cards. You can see them by clicking HERE.

I layered three colors on the front of this card to make it extra bright. Just pulling in the colors by using them as a border makes your card more interesting. I then pulled the Coastal Cabana water from the base of the card by using the Glitter Dots.  These dots draw your eye up and make you travel around the card. Wink of Stella on the flamingo make her nice and shiny. Bling makes every card better doesn’t it?

These Glitter Enamel Dots are great for a card that is going through the mail. That are very flat and (hopefully) won’t get crushed by the postal machine.

This card was so bright and sparkly I decided to use the sentiment “You Dazzle Me” from Pocketful of Sunshine.  Perfect match up from 2 stamp sets. Love it when that happens.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Happy Stamping!

Amazing You for Fab Friday #139

I am sharing a card I created for Fab Friday #139. This week they posted a sketch challenge, my favorite! Sketches are one of my favorite starting places for card crafting and scrapbooking.

Here is the Fab Friday sketch:

Fab Friday 139

 

Pretty simple which makes it easy to go in several directions. I chose to go with a basic, simple card that has movement and color.

Here is my card:

 Fab Friday Enjoy Life Ginny Harrell Celebrate the journey

The bicycle rider shows movement and the waves of the embossing folder makes it look like he is riding with the wind. I deliberately offset the two circles to make your eye travel.

See the brick road. It is silver embossing paste on the new Gray Granite card stock. The embossing paste has a little bit of shine, which I love.

I also want to wish everyone a Happy Father’s Day! Make it an enjoyable day doing something special.

 

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Stamping!

Oh Darling for Global Design Project #142

Today I am sharing a card I created for Global Design Project  #142. It sure feels good to be back participating in some challenges. I have had a summer cold and have not wanted to do anything. Hopefully I will start to feel better after today’s visit to the doctor.

Here is the sketch for this week. Simple but the slant gives it some interest.

Here is my Oh, Darling card:

 Stitched All Around , Beautiful You, Ginny Harrell, Stampin' Up Celebrate the Journey

Look at this sentiment! I knew I had to have this stamp the minute I saw it. I can see it on so many cards and scrapbook pages.

 Old Meets New

To create this card, you will be mixing an older stamp set, Beautiful You with new Designer Series Paper and this fabulous sentiment. I love when you can mix and match with our stamp sets.

Thanks for stopping by today.
