SAF 2015 Red Carpet

So sad it is all over! 

SAF 2015: Threads Challenge

This has all been so much fun! I adore this little "nest" technique! I used distress ink to make the background! I really love all the bright colors!

SAF 2015: Runway Inspired Challenge

This is my FAVORITE challenge! I really made me step out of my 'box' and I really love the results. I love the colors! All the dresses and color combos are STUNNING and I printed them so I can try out the other combos! So fun! Thanks for stopping by!

SAF: Make it Work Challenge

This card started out as a one layer card that I saw on line a while back (can't even begin to remember where) and I just wanted something more-- so I added a die cut layer for the sentiment. I thought it needed some sparkly stars and pink CS strip accents. I really like the extras and they took my card up a notch but it is still my clean and simple style! Thanks!

SAF 2015 Bridal Challenge

I love making simple elegant cards, its just my style. I used the PTI Sheet Basics Vellum PP over a soft stone card base. I used the Scribbles dies and some silver thread behind the sentiment (from Bigger Blooms). And finally I added some silver hearts and adhesive pearls.  With no wedding our future plans I thought I could use this for an anniversary card too. Thanks for stopping by!

SAF 2015 Pattern Challenge

I Love that PTI gave us 12 card layout ideas! I printed them and will refer to them A LOT! I used pattern #5 with my Gold Luxe Foil PP and my Year of Flower: Carnation stamp. I embossed the Carnation with gold and used my new Zig watercolor brushes to color the petals a little and them sprayed it with  water so the color would move around. After it dried I cut it out! I feel like the photo doesn't do it justice but I hope you like it anyway. Thanks for stopping by!

SAF 2015 Mixing Colors

Summer Sunrise it just one of those colors I hardly ever use and it took me a long time to buy the ink pad. But, Hawaiian Shores is my favorite color so I put them together and added a little Simply Chartreuse. I love the combo!  I used the Go-to-card-pattern #2 for my layout (I adore that guide). Have a great day!
