SugarPea Designs Sweet Sneaks - Day 1

I am so excited to be guest designing with Sugar Pea Designs this month and next! Join me each day this week as I'll be sweet peeking with the Sugar Peas crew starting with an adorable set today called Tons of Fun. It has the cutest elephant you ever did see along with a great variety of sentiments! Be sure to read all the way through my post to find out how YOU can win Tons of Fun

 Also featured today is a nested die set called Zig Zag Circles which I used to make an opening for a balloon shaker. My cute elephant is gold embossed as well as his party hat (so stinkin' cute) and is holding onto his balloon with a gold string which I created by trimming a thin piece of gold card stock. 

The stripey pink edge was made using the solid ribbon stamp included in Tons of  Fun. Gotta stretch those stamps whenever you can!

Mama Elephant Rainbow Challenge

Hi, all! I'm doing a quick blog post from Alaska while I'm visiting my yummy new grandson for a week, the cutest, sweetest baby ever (says every grandma)! And, since they're sleepy heads and I'm awake (CST vs. PST), I'm taking a few minutes to blog about a sweet little card I'm posting for the July Mama Elephant Flickr challenge.
I cannot put down my Zig Clean Color Markers, so they've once again done their watercolor magic on this adorable image from Mama Elephant's Potted Pretties set. I've had the best results watercoloring images that I've embossed because the slightly raised lines of the image help keep the colors separated. 

Be sure to check out this challenge on Flickr and all the adorable new stuff available at Mama E - cuteness overload!

Reverse Confetti SFYTT - Thankful

I decided to pull out a couple stamp sets from Reverse Confetti and play along with their current Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT) - Whole Lotta Dots & Forever Fall.

The watercolor background was inspired by Laura Bassen's card which you can see HERE and is the reason I bit the bullet and bought a set of Zig Clean Color markers. Such an enabler is that girl! I kept the other layers of the sketch very neutral so the background could shine through. 


Click on over to the Reverse Confetti Blog and check out the original sketch along with more inspiration from the RC gals. I'm heading back to Alaska tomorrow to see my new grandson, so I'll see you all next week!

Sailing with Color

Are you sailing through your weekend? Me, too!

I decided to dive into the Paper Smooches SPARKS Anything Goes Challenge and threw caution to the wind freestylin' the sails and flag on my Paper Smooches Sailboat with my Real Color brushes. What do you think?

I really wanted those sails to pop, so I set the rest of the card in white with a little black contrast on the sentiment layer and Gumdrops.

There are still a few hours left to join in on the challenge, so why not give it a try? I'm off to enjoy the rest of my weekend.
