Happy Tuesday!

Any day after Monday is a "Happy Day".  LOL.  My card this week at The Outlawz Color Challenge is based on the lovely and vibrant inspiration photo by our own Penny.  Penny is also our sponsor this month!


I chose the colors Grass, Lemon and Passion Purple.  Your April Actions Twist is to add a butterfly.

I used a tiny butterfly punch I have had that I got off a dump table at Michael's, and boy have I gotten a lot of use out of it!  My flower are some old Prima's I have had for ages, also.  I put some tiny purple pearls on my butterflies and some green ones on my flowers.  The leaves were made with a small leaf punch and my grass was cut with my Cricut.  I have really been trying to use my Cricut more.  

My sister, one of the "R" girls, gave me a whole box of various size punches she said she never used.  What a windfall for me!  I had fun over the weekend putting them all in order.

Aloha!

Today at The Outlawz we are getting our Tropical on!  Laurian chose a gorgeous photo for your inspiration and our color palette.  Her photo of the Bird of Paradise was taken on her holiday.  Your Twist this week is to make your project Tropical!


I have been trying to use my Cricut a little more.  The Hibiscus flowers were cut from the Life's a Beach cartridge and I place jewels in the center of them.  The font is also from the same cartridge.  The two background die cuts are made with Nestibilities dies and I added a little Stickles glitter in the deep yellow to the stem of the flowers and inked the edge of my card with yellow Cat's Eye chalk.

My card for this week

The digi is from Oak Pond and I used Copic Markers to color it up.  I put a "dot" of Shiny Accents on the Lady bug spots, used a small doily, lavender pearls, white satin ribbon and added tiny lavender pearls to it.  My cardstock is from my stash and it from Creative Memories.  It came pre-embossed and I have had it forever!  I used a decorative corner rounder also from Creative Memories.

Get Your Color On!


Lindsay is challenging us to use White and pick two other colors from the palette and make up your own TWIST.
My Card
I used the white, black and pink for my palette and a cute little bunny stamp from Stampin' Up.
I also used two tiny heart punches and an egg punch along with a tiny leaf punch.  My TWIST 
was to use a die cut.  I used one of my Nestibilities dies in two different sizes for my bunny background.
Little Bunny Foo Foo is colored with Copics in W1, W3 and W5 with a little pink in the ears.
I wrote my own sentiment with a Creative Memories Pink journaling pen.

Color Challenge is so excited to have as our sponsor for the
month of April our own Penny!  She has a gift certificate

Come Out and Play!

Color challenge this week has a fun theme of using balloons at your twist.  I used the balloon die cut from Sizzix.  It is one of the small ones.  I chalked the edges for a little definition, and used Glossy accents on the cut outs on the balloons and attached some white twine and a little piece of ribbon.  My image is from a very old set of Stampin' Up stamps and I colored with my Copic Markers.  I used my Creative Memories oval cutting system and an embossing folder from Sizzix.  The crocheted flower is from Michael's and I put a metal embellie on it.
