Breezy Vanilla Skies, Take 2

Okay, so here is the OTHER card that popped in my head when I saw this color combo( as I said before, a TOTAL rarity). I used my FAVORITE image from Paper Pretties, Simply Special. What I LOVE about this image is the fact that you can use it for just about any occasion, whether it is a birthday, sympathy, thinking of you, it just works...am I right!! Right now, all the Designer Paper is on sale for 50%off at Paper Pretties, so if you haven't checked THAT out, be sure to do so!! Anyway..I stamper the watering can twice, once on vanilla and once on my Bella Rose DP. I then cut out the can and used my re-inkers and an aqua painter to color the rest of the image. The flower was stamped separately too, colored, cut out, and glued on. I used my circle nesties to cut it out, and layered it with Kiwi and Baja Breeze. I realized I hadn't been using my organdy ribbon much lately, so I got out the vanilla organdy I have been hoarding for years, and tied a big yummy bow. You can just barely see my sentiment at the bottom. I swear to you all, I had both of these cards done in less than an hour...how awesome is that!!

Breezy Vanilla Kisses, Part One

When I saw the color combo this morning, I KNEW I wanted to participate(by the way, I was TOTALLY stalking the challenge, I saw it as SOON as she put it up..sick, I know!!). How GORGEOUS is it!! I instantly had two cards pop in my mind...which rarely happens. I am going to feature the first one here, and then the other one in a post of its own. This first one used my Eastern Blooms SU set, which is one of my faves!! I stamped the branch twice with Kiwi Kiss and then pierced the edges. It is layered with Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze. I didn't MEAN to have a sentiment panel, but my sentiment went on crooked, so I had to adjust!! I use my oval punches and some vanilla brads from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts. The flower was stamped with Baja Breeze, cut out and then I used a bone folder to curve it. Then I used a build a brad with some yummy Bella Rose paper for the center of it. The long panel is some more Bella Rose DSP and it is layered with the BB. The rest is pretty simple, although now that it is together, I really wish I had embossed it. By the way, if you HAVEN'T purchased this yummy kiwi ribbon, DO IT NOW!! It is GORGEOUS!! I almost forgot to say that this fabulous sketch is Jen's Sketch For You To Try from this past Saturday...I just now finally got to it!!

Thanks for stopping by, I will be back with another one ASAP!!
