City Crafters # 325

Today the Challenge at City Crafters is to make a 
 Black & White card.for a celebration!
 Such  possibilities with this one right!!
 I love polka dots so I started there for  my base.
  The diagonal die is from PTI and the black rick rack was made with a
 Scalloped Stampin Up border die. The black doily and flower are
 Spellbinders as is the tag. I added a pearl for my flower center and 
I found this cool old button in my one of my treasured button boxes!! 
The sentiment is from  the 
Chrysanthemum Set of MFP Stamps 
. Pop on over and join in this week!!

Sorry  ladies not so good at this blogging. Thought had it fixed to go yesterday. 
Trying to help my sister as she has EXTREME vertigo and is on her back.

Tuesday Throwdown #305

Two Posts today, My City Crafter Challenge Post is right below this one....

Good Morning Ladies, today Team B is Challenging you to a Tic Tac Toe!
Our Sponsor is Robyn's Fetish

For my card I am using Button~Die-Cut~Flower
I printed two of the rose then colored both the images and cut part
 of the flower out and pop dotted it up
to give it more dimension, more obvious in person than in the pic.
I embossed the dp with a Dotted Swiss Folder.
The ribbon is hand dyed and looks more red but its really rust to go with the dp.
 The sentiment is cut with a
Spellbinder Pennant die and tied 
on with a button.. The scalloped top is cut with a Stampin Up Border die. 
 Lots of variations you can use with the Tic Tac Toe so
come join in the fun this week!

Challenge # 31

MFP Challenge this week is to make a different kind of card. I made a pocket card .
 After cutting the card I covered it with some lavender dp and added the Stampin UP border.
 My tag is cut with a Spellbinder Die and tied on .The sentiment is
 from the Oopsy Daisy Set.  My flowers are from the Friends  Set, I created
 a new hybrid color LOL!! As you can see I added a couple to my tag
. The top is cut with a Spellbinder die too. Simple but a nice change, you can
 tuck a gift card, little book etc in the pocket. 
We would be delighted if you come join us this week!

 The Card with tag in it
The tag
I also finished the inside of the pocket

Todays Challenge is

a color one. MFP Challenge is to use the color tan. It should be the predominate 
color but you can used black, brown or white as well as a small amount of
 1 other color. Tan was a bit hard for me, I like color!
Using a brown and tan plaid to add some color to the tan base helps.
 I decided on brown leaves instead of green, seemed
 to go better with my  tan & brown flower and  the
 background. I used a Spellbinder die for the leaf spray.
The sentiment is from the Sending Happy Thoughts Set..
Simple and relatively quick. You have the week
 to join in the fun so stop over!

Tuesday Throwdown Team B

Good Morning our Tuesday Throwdown Challenge this week is use your
 Favorite Embellishment!
 Our Sponsor is Poppy Power and they have the Most Beautiful images!! 
If you love Botanicals this is the place to shop!! So I have used the
  beautiful Clematis image for my card, coloring it in reds. I love Clematis but
 unfortunately they dont like the desert and wont grow here, 
so have to be satisfied with them on a card!
I dont  know that I have a particularly favorite embellie but
 I do love ribbons and pearls. I didnt have any pearls so used some sequins,
 jewels and a hand dyed ribbon to go with my clematis image. My tag was
 embossed with a Stampin Up folder and the dp is a Teresa Collins World Travel
 piece. The pretty border is a PTI die. My teammates have some beautiful
 cards to inspire you so stop by and visit them!!

A different kind of card....

Today MFP Stamp Challenge has a new challenge. 
It is to make a rocker card, with instructions HERE. I havent made one
of these before but pretty easy. I have used some coordinating dps in coral 
tones. The images are from the lovely Asian Delights Set.
 Geisha girls are beautiful and I love their kimonos. 
I  have a beautiful one 
from when I was in Japan. After coloring
 all the images in the set I finally decided on this one. Cut her out 
and mounted to show her up a little better. 
The border is cut with a Spellbinder die and a little ribbon wrapped around.
 A quick card and fun. Dare ya to try it!!
