Color Dare #229 ~ Silver, Black, White Daisy, Pansy and Raspberry


Fun Sunburst Birthday Card

I saw a card on Pinterest which really inspired me so I decided to day when I had a couple of minutes I would replicated it.  Here is the original and here is mine.

Fundamentals ~ Birthday Card ~ Sunburst ~

For this card I use the Adventure Fundamental papers Z3125 and the Balloon Wishes D1667.   I added the bitty sparkles and white stars.  I used my white pen to add the stitching.

My Layout Challenge #5

Are you ready to see another layout??  I have not been as on top of getting layouts done this past two weeks as I was finishing up some Studio J photos.  I am so bummed that Studio J will be going away the end of April or when the current supply of photo paper are depleted.  I use Studio J to print my photos for scrapbooking.  So I will have a large pile of photos to scrapbook!! So I should be able to maintain my goal.  Speaking of here is my layout number #5

Fundamentals Enchantment ~ Cat Tales ~  4 photo layout ~ CatScrapbooking.comI thought the big ball of yarn was sort of humorous since we were at a large cat zoo.

Here is the list of supplies used:

Technique Blog Hop ~ Get Back to the Fundamentals

Welcome to the Technique Blog Hop!

SimplyFundamentalsThis month we are featuring the FUNDAMENTAL Papers and Embellishment!  Close to My Heart has just released new patters for our Fundamental papers and Embellishments to match.  You can find these on  pages 108-111 of the new Annual Inspirations Idea book.  The Fundamental papers are great as they will coordinate with any layout you wish to design.  You can create your own color combinations to match your photos. This month we have 8 consultants featuring artwork using this technique.  If you just hopped onto my blog or arrived from PRICILLA GOTHAM ’S Blog then you are in the right place.  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating these papers.

Fundamentals ~ Rootbeer ~ CatScrapbookign.comI love the splatter technique and decided to try something a little different this time.  I used my watercolors to create the splatter instead of ink or stamping.  I just mixed up the colors and then made sure I had a really wet brush and flicked the brush. I cut all the shapes with my Cricut.  The font for the title is Everyday Fonts – Best of Times, the circle and stars are free shapes and the banner is a cut from Artistry that I unlocked and changed the dimensions.

This month there is a great promotion going on with this Fundamental Paper collection.  The Simply Fundamental Scrapbooking workshop has been created using all the items featured in our campaign exclusive My Legacy™ album bundles, available during November for $71.80 USD / $85.25 CAD each!
