I was in the middle of posting my CC194 card when my computer crashed - YIKES!!!
I have some news to share....I'll be a Guest Designer for *Treehouse Stamps* in Dec/Jan!!!
I'm so excited to get a chance to play with Ashley Bowen's Stamps!!!
Treehouse Stamps is celebrating it's
1. Anniversary starting December 01st and Ashley will have some fun stuff going on - so make sure you'll check her blog!!!
I used Beate's WSC67 for the layout. The Set I'm using is actually a Sneak Peek for the December Release and it's called *Owlentine*. I colored the owls with Prisma and Copic Marker - Sienna Brown, Dark Brown, Green Tea and Lipstick Red. I also used the Going Gray Marker from SU. I added some Basic Black CS to make the image pop a bit more...Next I added some Tiny Silver Brads and the Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon. The Really Rust CS was embossed with the CB folder *Bubbles*.
Hope you like it??? ~TFL~
Next is my card for the *Be Inspired* Challenge #33.
This time Beate has chosen this cozy outdoor living space by Martha Stewart. It reminds me a lot of Germany.... - we have beautiful settings like that around the area I grew up!!! I always loved the Summer time in Germany...fun Beer Gardens, good food and the best beer - LOL!!! I think I'm getting home sick now...:(
I have not been to Germany in 3 years!!! It gets harder and harder once the kids go to school and all the activities after school....Sorry - didn't try to get all sad now - LOL!!!
Anyway - here is what inspired me about this picture - there are some hanging light right above the table - can you see them??? I thought it would be fun to translate them into hanging ornaments for my Christmas card.
For the layout of my card I used the OCC Sketch from this past weekend. The flowers from the picture were my color inspiration....just in case you wondered where the blue is coming from - LOL!!! The CS I chose are - Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red and Whisper White. I embossed the Baja Breeze CS with the CB folder *Snowflakes*. Next I stamped the Ornaments from the retired *Ornamassortment* Set with Black Stazon and colored them with Baja Breeze and Riding Hood Red Ink using a Blender Pen!!! Next I added some Crystal Effects and dried it with the Heating Tool. Once I knew it was completely dry I added the punched out Martha Stewart Branches on top. I used River Rock, Chocolate Chip and Old Olive CS for them. Next I dressed the card up with the new Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon.
The sentiment is from the *Many Merry Messages* and it was also inked in Black Stazon. This whole panel was raised with Stampin Dimensionals.
Well - I hope you like my take in the picture??? ~TFL~
