It Is Time for A Riddle. Come Join the Fun!

Before we begin,  I hoped you enjoyed my crazy picture yesterday.  I thought he was just to cute to ignore.  Now I have a riddle for you what does an octopus and frog have in common?  Water of course.  So today you are getting two cards. The first is part of a challenge and is really simple design which what the team wanted. I just had to pick what I wanted in the circle.  So this frog is sending out love.

Don’t worry this cute frog is not part of the retirement group.  I just chose it because it fit with this challenge.  Your next card will be retiring.

Base:  Is simply to two patterns with the black buffering it in the middle.  Orange and greens go together.  They are opposite each other on the color wheel.  However, the green needs to dominate the colors.   The strips were part of the challenge.

Focus:  The focus is this adorable frog in green with a green circle behind.  I wanted it to be bright as to say “I love you” or “thinking of you.”


Stamp Set:  You’re Sublime

Color Combination:  Cucumber Crush, Mossy Meadow

Ink:   Archival Black, Cucumber Crush, Mossy Meadow

Paper:   Basic Black

Designers Paper:  Everyday Chic, 2014-2016 In Color

Accessories:  Circle Collection, 2 1/2″ circle

The next card is another simple card.  We did this fold a few weeks ago. It is called a Collar Card  and was done January 16th as a video. I used the Artistic Paper that is retired out.  The octopus from Seas Street stamp is stamped on a 2 1/2″ circle which I punched out.  I used the bright cheery Daffodil Delight.  The Happy Birthday stated on the side is from Remembering Your Birthday which will be retiring.  It has great greetings and sentiments.

I think the paper looks like the ocean.  Picture the ocean swells. What do you think?

WOW Wednesday Are You Short on Time?

If I were a goat I'd want to be this one! :):

Okay you are wondering what that guy is all about, he is smiling.  We all need to smile because it is Wednesday and we have made.  This means two more days till the weekend and maybe a little stamping time. Hooray!!

Here is a WOW Wednesday and I will be focusing on sponging techniques. We all at some point in time need an extra special card,  but ask where is the time?  This card will do the trick and maybe put a smile on someone’s face.  So watch the video on how to mask and sponge.

Here is an example of masking technique.  Note I said in the video that I used the Oval Framelit, but I actually used Deco Labels.  The one nice thing about masking is you can use whatever shape you need.

Base: Its with masking Deco Labels according to size that fits on your card. You start my sponging on the Pear Pizzazz and then adding a some Daffodil Delight.  Your green shade will be heavier that the yellow shade. Next add an ever slight Blushing Bride.  I think of the pink shade has it appears in a sunset.  So you want every so little of it.

Focal Point: The birds in the nest from World of Dreams is stamped in black.  They appear to be sitting in the tree against the beautiful vibrant sky. A punched butterfly is fluttering by them. Use dimensionals to give it the appearance of flight.

Greeting: I chose to not put a greeting because I felt it would distract from the focus of the beautiful sunset and the birds.  By the way, I consider the greeting for outside the card and the sentiment for the inside of the card.  The sentiment has more emotions or feelings that are revealed inside the card.

Congratulation Season Is Upon US

Whether you know someone graduating, retiring, or maybe some other occasion, a card is a nice touch.  This card will bring a smile because it is all stars. With the exception of Gorgeous Grunge, the items in this card are leaving us. So let have one more opportunity to use them.  The star punches have been one of my favorite punches. It just adds an extra touch to the card.
