Color Challenge!

I love a color challenge!  This week's Sisters In Stamping theme is a color challenge:  Pool Party, Early Espresso, and Whisper White.  This is a GREAT color combo - very sophisticated and classy, I think!

I love this amazing satin ribbon, so knew I wanted to use it.  I also have been wanting to use my new Mediterranean stamp set.  This set reminds me of my trip to Greece and Italy - wish I were there now!  Anyway, I decided to try several techniques on some watercolor paper.  The best ended up being using a blending pen and pulling ink from the stamp pad.  I'm horrible with a water painter, so...I'll keep trying!

Here is the card I made.  It isn't well colored, but it'll have to do for now ;) 

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

It's Bunny Season - My Favorite Time of Year :)

Today, the Sisters In Stamping are featuring Easter projects.  I love this time of year because there are cute bunny things in abundance!  This is because I have had pet rabbits for 25 years, I love seeing all things bunny :)

I decided to make a little treat box for my project.  I used the Baker's Box Thinlit, and cut it out Emerald Envy DSP from the In Color Designer Series Pack.  I used the new Basket Bunch stamp set to stamp the basket bottom, bunny, and sentiment.  I then die cut the basket, bunny, and bow using the accompanying die set Basket Builder Framelits.  I used the Banners Framelits to die cut the sentiment.  I "tied" it all together using the Whisper White Thick Bakers Twine.  I filled the little box with Easter M&Ms.  Not only are they pretty colors with speckles, they are larger too!  Did I say how much I love this time of year????

Here's my project:
