I love vintage card and paper and this card fits.  The wonderful Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge this week wants a flower somewhere on it and is based on the scripture of Isaiah 40:8.  This card is on page 27 of the Occasions Mini (just a reminder  which by the way ends the 30th) in Shelli's Collection.  I hope you enjoy this card.  Happy Stampin' until we stamp again, Lynette

Hummingbird with Watercolors-Stampin' 411 #146 & Stampin' 411 Color #118

I am not to pleased with this card.  It is working for 2 challenges: the sketch is Stampin' 411 & the color scheme Stampin' 411 Color Inspiration.  These are colors that I am not really fond of and  never used before, especially not together, so this challenge made me challenge myself as well.   Using More Mustard as the base (I also used my new Big Shot-practice run), 2nd and 4th layers are Creamy Carmel was punched with the Scallop Trim Border, 3rd layer is Garden Green, and 5th is Ruby Red.  Using SU's Spring Song Stamp Set then coloring in with SU's Watercolor Pencils that I just received and then going over the stamped image with a small wet artist brush, let dry and then assemble.  The ribbon is SU's Whisper White Taffeta.  I hope this looks better to you then to me.   Happy Stampin' until we stamp again, Lynette

It's Flutter By Time #103

This week Flutter by Wednesday wants colors of blue, green, and white with butterfly.  I made this cute little post it note card Monday night at our SU demo group meeting.  The colors are Taken with Teal, Certain Celery and Whisper White.  Used the Scallop Circle and Scallop Trim Border Punches.  Whisper White 1/4 Grosgrain ribbon and the Vintage Vogue Stamp Set.  This not only cute to give as a gift but to leave on your desk at work.
I hope you enjoy, & happy stamping until we stamp again, Lynette
