Do you like to watercolor??

Hope so because that is our challenge at Tuesday Throwdown this week!
 Our Sponsor is Freckled Fawn and they have provided us with these pretty
 little silver puffy hearts.There is a whole page of them in a variety of shapes and sizes. 
They reflected the shadows and look dark but really they are light and 
look very soft and pretty on the card. I started with green, blue ,purple and
 yellow water colors. Letting them puddle, run and dry. The image is an
 old Carol Wright that I also watercolored and cut a portion of it out 
with a Spellbinder. This was a fun card to make. I also
 made up several other background with  other colors since I was at it.
 Hope you stop over and show us your watercolor creations!

Lemons Lemons

Yes Im using some sunny lemons today for the Friends of Speedy TV Challenge. 
Our challenge is to use 3 panels on your card. It could be for your background or for 
your images. I randomly stamped the Lemon Image all over the panels then colored them 
with water color pencils and a bit with copics. I used chalk for the blue background.
 A little faux stitching around the panels, then added to the yellow base. 
The sentiments are from the  Dogwood Set and the Bring on the Sun Set
After matting I foam dotted them on and it was a pretty quick card.You can find
 these sets and Many more plus all your other stamping goodies at MFP Stamp Shop. 
My talented teamies switched it up using the panels several different ways so 
check out their awesome creations and then come show us yours!! 
Have a fabulous week friends!!

Speedy Fox and Friends Saturday Challegne

Good Morning Friends, today at Speedy Fox and Friends we are challenging 
you to Collage Stamping.
Using different stamps to create a collage effect. I have used several different 
Marks Finest Papers Happy Birthday Stamps and created the background using 
different colored inks with the different stamps. Then using different inks
 I also added some background colors. Next I used the Lily Stamp
 then added the butterfly. I then stitched it onto the gold and added it to 
the green polka dotted base. Although it looks really dark its
 just a nice medium olive green, in person looks nice.
 A little row of jewels and the cards done.
 Its a fun technique and you can created so many different looks with it
. Come join us and give it a whirl!!

Make your own Background...

Our Challenge at Speedy Fox and Friends is to sponge over a die cut negative to create your background. I have used a Spellbinder Label  21 for my background. Using Tim Holtz green lavender and blue inks I sponged them on over the negative shape. Then using The Dogwood Flower image I heat embossed it. A little dyed ribbon and stitching, some sparkles and viola a quick card!

I did a second one with a bit of a twist. I just laid the Spellbinder Label 20 die down sponged the red and green inks then used red to sponge on the outside of the die just leaving the outline. Heat embossed one of the Christmas Cardinal images, matted and stitched it all together! The sentiment was from from the same set.

 They have given us some fun images to work with. Out theme is For A Child. 
 I am using the Ice Cream image and Sentiment from that set.I printed the 
ice cream large twice and a very small one also. After coloring them 
all I cut out just the ice cream. added some stickles and foam dotted it onto the whole 
image for more dimension. The stripe is a piece of old MME stitched on. A little strip
of embossed and die cut white added and them a piece of rick rack. The sentiment

Good Morning Friends

It's that time again. Speedy Fox and Friends is challenging you to
 use gold and silver on your creation. For some reason I just was sorta stymied on this one.
 Finally decided to stitched a piece of gold lame onto the black.
 From there I stamped the coneflower fro the Cone Flower Set and cut it out. 
The Sentiment is  silver heat embossed from the Sunflower Set and cut with a Spellbinder
 die then foam dotted on. It looked so plain so I added some "Australian Lace" with 
Silver Stickles.A little harder that doing it with smooth flowing frosting lol! Voila done!! 
Here in the Mohave Desert we are having our last hurrah of heat today 109 and 
then its supposed to cool down to the low 100s by next week!! 
I'm SO ready for some cooler weather.
 Ready to get my garden in and not having to walk before sun up.

Happy Saturday....

Here at Speedy Fox and Friends we have a new Challenge for the upcoming week. 
All the team has some great inspirational creations to get you going!
  The challenge is to Stamp over Stencils. After using some blue lavender and green inks
 with my stencil I also used THE Cracked Hello Set to stamp over the
 stencil in random spots.  After that I used the small rose from the  Roses Set
 I stitched on then distressed the edges and dyed a bow to match.I have to say this the jewels
do match, something about the lighting turned them neon turquoise!!
 All mounted on the blue for a pretty quick card.

 I'm on a twofur roll the past couple weeks LOL!! Needed another card and had started this one first and didnt like it, but after I finished it, it's not so bad so showing it too.
Used a triple square stencil in different colors and then just plain stamped over with the
 Rooster and Hen from the Flap My Wattles Set.
 My friends birthday is here and we have been friends for  40 years!! 
This will make her laugh for sure!

We will look forward to seeing all your great creations when you join us this week!!

It Tuesday~~~

Time for a new Challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  Team B is showing off their Creations today.
 The CHALLENGE is SWEETS. Show us your card with some type of sweet treat on it.
I need two cards and liked both images so have made two different cards today.
Our Sponsor is Robyn's Fetish, check out their huge selection of images!!

The first uses the Snowman Cone image
Pretty simple, stitched on the plaid and cut a banner. After coloring and glittering the cutie Snowman image I cut it out and mounted on the embossed banner. A quick folded bow attached with a button finishes the top of the banner. The sentiment is cut with a Spellbinder and attached to the black punched with a Marvy punch.

The second is using the Cupcake With Leaf image
After cutting and stitching on the corner pieces I colored and cut out the cupcake image. A little glitter added to the flower. The layers were cut with a Scalloped Spellbinder rectangle die. The brown embossed and cupcake added. The bow is dyed seam binding. The sentiment was cut out with a Spellbinder Label with a little jewel added .
Be sure to stop over and show us your Sweet Stuff this week!

Good Morning Friends...

Can you believe August is just about gone? We are supposed
 to be cooling down into the low 100's by next weekend, woohoo summer is winding down!
So anyways onto our Friend of Speedy TV Challenge this week. The card 
that none of us really wants to make. A Sympathy Card is this weeks theme.
My friend's son passed away last week so I made two trying to decide
 which one to give her.  The first one I used the image from the
 Oriental Joy Set with a little bit of coloring. I didnt want to use a
 sympathy sentiment so the thinking of you is from the Chrysanthemum Set.

For this card I stamped the tule images from the Marsh Silhouette Set as is the
sentiment attached with a brad.
Stop by and join the Challenge this week!!
