Memories in the Making & Perfect Plum- Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Welcome to the February round of the Fancy Friday Blog Hop!!

I LOVE this month's theme!! We've all been challenged to use one of our least favorite colors. Our neglected colors that never get picked. Stampin' Up has 50 wonderful colors, but some just don't speak to me.
What color would you say is "that color" for you?

So what color did I choose? I chose PURPLE! 
Specifically Perfect Plum. 

I am not a big fan of purple and I rarely use it as a focal point. I didn't even have any full sheets of Perfect Plum or Elegant Eggplant to make a card base! But, I can tell you I love the outcome and I am so glad I played around with them!! 

I did the "smoosh" technique for the background. Not sure if that's the official term, but that's what I call it. I took a piece of Window Sheet and dropped some Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant ink in the center. I spritzed a little water and then tilted it side to side to get the colors to move around. Then, I laid my Shimmery White cardstock down on the puddle and lifted up. 

Next, I flicked some water drops on it and the dabbed it with a paper towel. Once it was dry, I embossed the images from Project Life Memories in the Making in White Embossing Powder. To make the front image, I stamped the same circle on Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder cardsotck. I fussy cut them and added them with Dimensionals. The sentiment is from Suite Sayings. 

And I even got fancy on the inside! 
So, I think I kind of like purple now... What do you think?

Thanks for hopping along this month. I hope you have been inspired to create with a color you've been neglecting. 

Ok, you're off to Connie for the next stop in the Bolg Hop!

Skating By: Mediterranean Trip Achievers Blog Hop

I love this month's theme for the Mediterranean Trip Achievers Blog Hop!!!
We are all focusing on BOYS! GUYS! MEN!
I don't make enough masculine cards and I need to make myself do it more often.

I had a really hard time picking which stamp to use for this card but couldn't be more thrilled with my choice.

Isn't this little dude just the cutest? And I really enjoyed coloring him and his guitar. Coloring images like this and really taking my time, really is very relaxing. I was sleepy when I was finished... LOL! I used my good old Aqua Painter and my Stampin' Up ink pads to color him. 

Here is a better look at his cute little face. I fussy cut both him and the guitar and  adhered them on to White cardstock with Dimensionals. I like the shadow this creates. I also added staples for that "manly" look as well as some texture using Timeless Textures onto the wood print DSP.

Make sure you hop over to the other ladies on this long list. This blog hop is so impressive each month. I love just stirring back and looking through all the gems they have created. 

In case you are interested in the supplies I used, here they are:

Happy Home and Greatest Greetings

Hey everyone!

I'm showing you a very special card today I made for one of my team members. She's worked really hard and has had a promotion recently so I wanted to send her something special in the mail! I'm in full Aqua Painter mode right now because of my upcoming class, so I used them to create this card for her also!

I used the Aquapainter to create the sky background first on Shimmer White cardstock. Then I used it to liven up the tree with Rose red and Melon mambo ink. Spring anyone?? Yes, please! And who doesn't love a pink wind frame, right!?

You can see how I carried over the sky background both on the background paper as well as behind the stamped image. So fun! I am so addicted to my Aquapainters right now! 

Here are all my supplies:
