My Sheri Crafts Challenge #141--Music

Well here it is Sept. can't believe summer is almost over . I haven't posted much over the past few months but this week I saw a challenge that Sheri Holt posted on her blog so thought I would give it a go . Her challenge is Music. I always wanted to try a piano card so this is what I came up with . The piano shape was cut using a flexable Bo-Bunny rule while I've had for years and seldom use up did come in handy for this card. I used white glossy cardstock for the white keys and scored @3/4" and then highlighted the score lines with a black marker.I used spellbinders tags for the black keys. The flower was made using Spellbinders Rose Creation Die . The music script I printed off the computer and aged with Antique distress ink. Just Rite stamps set Musical Notes Label Twenty completed my card .

Just Rite Friday Challenge #126--Don't be so negative

I'm back after a wonderful vacation visiting my son and family in Ontario . It seems ages since I've posted on my blog so today I decided to enter a card for the JR Friday challenge. It's been so hot and humid hear in Nova Scotia so yesterday I spent so time in my craft room where it was cool. Here's my card I created .

I used the negative space cut from the Cheery Lynn Designs DieIItalian Doily for my background and then popped up the doily with dimensionals. The sentiment is from Just Rite stamp set Rose Bonquet Vintage Labels.

JustRite Friday Challenge #121 ---Color your image

Just wanted to share a card I made for this week's challenge over at Just Rite Stamps blog. This week focuses on coloring .I used my stamp set from JRS Botanical Butterflies and colored the image with my NEW Gelatos that I won recently from JRS for a comment I made on their Tues, Tutorials. I love how nicely the colors blend together. Will certainly be using them a lot.

I chose a pattern paper by Bo-Bunny from the Gabrielle Collection layering it on Bazzill c/s base. I used Spellbinder dies Decorative Labels 22 and sponged with DI Dried Marigold followed by a paper doily that I dyed with DS I then ran some satin ribbon through the next die and then layered my image which was again sponged with DI Peacock Feathers. To finished off my card I added a bow and some gems from my stash.

JRS Friday Challenge 119--Get Krafty #2

Since I had some pieces left laying on my desk I thought I'd make another card . For this one I thought that Tim's bare branch tree should meet JRS Musical Notes Labels 20. The tree was cut with corrugated cardboard and sponged with picket fence distress stain . I  stamped and embossed the birds colored with DI Iced Spruce and then cut out freehand .The sentiment was stamped and embossed with Egyptian gold EP . This was a fun card to make .
