Color Blog Hop Sept. 30, 2015

IMG_0661Hello – please excuse my short entry, but I am having major computer issues with NO available space on my hard drive, therefore I can’t download images or pictures or edit them.  I have a beautiful card that I made with this weeks colors – hopefully you were able to see the inspiration and color choices on someone before me, or I know next on the hop is Sandy and she will certainly have them.   I used Work of Art, Gorgeous Grunge and Wetlands on this card.  Helen and Joni are both busy this week so I think you should have come via Amanda’s blog . . . if not Robbie is the beginning.

IMG_0660Hi Hoppers – we have more pinks today!  You should have popped over from Joni’s blog and Sandy is next in line.  Be sure to check out these entries . . . Sandy told me she was going to try to do something ‘fall’ with these colors – so I tried as well.  Not too shabby!  The stamp sets I used are : For All Things, Gorgeous Grunge & Bordering Blooms.  I colored the background stamp with rose red, pink pirouette &  blushing bride and then used a wet paint brush to gently blend each color into the next.  Tip Top Taupe really goes well with this combo.  I colored my sahara sand ribbon with my tip top taupe marker.56543331bHELEN 8

Color Blog Hop Sept. 15, 2015 One Sheet Wonder

Hi hoppers – today’s colors and image were selected by Robbie – I spent a LONG time searching for inspiration on this one.   You should have arrived her via Joni’s blog and as usual – Sandy is next on the hop. I ended up trying something new to me – the concept of the “One Sheet Wonder” seen here.  I used my fall stamp set For All Things and began making my own dsp on a sheet of Very Vanilla Cardstock.  Then the fun really began as I tried to use all the pieces to make several cards/projects.  I ended up with a little gift bag w/4 mini cards and then 5 additional cards.   The process took me a couple of days to come up with all the cards etc.  but I am pleased with the finished products.  Of course this is easier if you just use a piece of dsp!one sheet 014one sheet 017one sheet 01962059029bROBBIE 1

IMG_0651[1]Hi hoppers – Helen sure did pick a beautiful  inspiration piece.  My card uses only three of the colors:  Garden Green (which I colored with marker – so it is a very dark version), Blackberry Bliss and a touch of Rose Red for the butterflies.  You probably stopped by Joni’s before heading here – make sure to continue on to Sandy’s site a see what she has cooked up this week . . . wonder if it’s flowers????  The stamp set I used this week is Summer Silhouettes.6481185bHELEN 4

Hi hoppers – hope you left a comment over at Joni’s and be sure to continue on to Sandy’s blog.  I have just struggled for 2 hours to post this picture – my disc space is too full – AGAIN – and it would not let me open or edit my photo.  I finally resorted to saving it to an external drive and then was able to copy it from there – ah technology.  AND  I did spend an hour trying to delete or ‘send to’ to free up space – ugh!  Guess I know what I’ll be working on this weekend.    Enough on that – hope you enjoy my card this week.  I’m not sure I like the font on my saying with this picture – but it’s done and I need such a card, so I’ll use it!
