Twisted Tuesday Challenge

Today is another challenge at Twisted Tuesday Challenges.  The challenge and twist today is to show what you are working on now.  Well since Mother's Day is right around the corner, I decided to post a picture of the Mother's Day Card I made.  I first embossed a piece of velum with the Manhattan Flower Stampin Up embossing folder.  I then sponged different colors on the back and cut it out and placed it on my card front.  I love the look of velum and when you give it a little color in the background, it really pops.

Since this is for Mother's Day I decided to enter it in "Hiding in My Craft Room" challenge because the challenge is Mother's Day.

Twisted Tuesday Challenge

I am really excited about the challenge at Twisted Tuesday today because I got to incorporate 2 things that I love.  The first part of the challenge was to use chalk, glitter, spritz spray, distress inks or copic markers.  Well of course I pulled out my copics and one of my favorite stamps by My Favorite things called "A Box of Love".  I just love this stamp set.  I colored the girl with my markers and then cut the dress out and then cut another layer for the box of chocolates.

The second part of the challenge was to do something that reminds you of chocolate.  I had seen this on Pinterest and it sure does look like a chocolate bar.  The squares are 3/4 x 1" on the bottom and 5/8 x 7/8" on the top.  The aluminum foil was actually from a large Lindt bar someone had sent me.  Too bad I had to eat the bar so I could use the foil. 

Thanks for taking a look and be sure and join us this time at Twisted Tuesday for this challenge.

ICE Resin

I took a class last weekend at RTRT in Gardner and I must say that I loved it.  I have a few more projects planned using the technique we learned.  I tried to incorporate things I like and this is what I ended up with.  Sorry the picture is a little blurry but I was shaking when I took the picture.

Twisted Tuesday Challenge

Today's challenge over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges was so much fun for me.  The challenge this week was to use an animal in my project.  Well if anyone knows me they won't be surprised that I used a yellow cat since I have 2 at home.  The twist of this challenge was to use flowers which is another favorite of mine. 

I received a wonderful kit from one of my SCS friends, Vickie, and decided this would be perfect to use with this project.  The paper I used is from Fact and Fiction from Basic Grey.  Vickie also sent me these cute YoYo flowers so I thought it would be perfect with my card. The stems for the flowers are a diecut from Memory Box.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up.
