Saturday Cinema - Gold Finger

I have had some scrapping time this weekend and while I am getting REALLY behind on my photos I am enjoying making cards!

I used Creative imaginations patterned paper, Bazzill cardstock, spellbinders cutters (had them forever - thought I should actually USE them!) Autumn Leaves Stamp, Gold Embossing, Gold Stickles, SU Scallop Punch, Ribbon from my stash,Dew Drops Made by Sharon and Pop Dots

The paper reminded me of foreign places and the stamp reminded me of all Bond movies!

My latest project

I decided to make a gift for my mom-in-law. She is recovering from heart surgery. We are trying to convince her to come stay with us this summer for a month. ANYWAY... here is the wall hanging I made. I used a kit from Quick Quotes and added some additional items from my stash.

Your regularly scheduled programming....

was pre-empted by a phone call from a friend needing 5 two page layouts by this weekend. She called Sunday night - so I needed to balance work, had a work friend in from out of town with his wife and child so we had them over for dinner Monday night, Bellas family birthday party is tomorrow and this ROTTEN cold I have.

Anyway the colors she told me to use were hot pink, blue (like crayon blue) and light yellow. Here are the five layouts I made -- mostly I used papers that Jamie sent me black and white ones by Imaginisce. With Bazzil and DCWV solids. I played with flowers and punches and ribbons.

The idea is that they will be handing out white sheets for everyone to write on at the shower (and they will take pictures too) and add the photos --- the bride tends to like things a little simple (hmmmm not me! hehehe) so I tried to restrain myself a little -- I definately used my Layout Blueprints (I have both volumes) for inspiration.

The pics arent the best but I snapped them Thursday morning right before packing and mailing them.


Oh and a little view of my cat Tommy -- who kept me company!

Kristina Werners Color Challenge #44

The hubby went to play at the Winter bluegrass festival last night. So I ended up going to bed early and got up this morning and decided to give Kristina's color challenge a try.

His band is at mosspiglets.com for anyone interested -- my hubby wrote and sang Small Town USA which is my fave of their new album. The CDs are on order -woohoo they are out of the studio! Albums take a LONG time to make!

Anway back to the card:

The base is Junkitz paper -- Also used DCWV (pink pattern), BG (brown pattern and tag), a strip of dark brown Bazzill is under the vellum. I do not remember the name of the vellum maker as it came from my stash. The brads are from Queen and Co. The stamps -- the words are CTMH and the dots are a SU roller. I used Adirondack Earthtones Espresso for stamping and Dark Brown Cats Eye chalk ink for inking the edges. The ribbon is from my LSS and I love it but dont know the brand.

Here are the colors:
