DDD February 2015 Challenge Umbrellas

This month for our friendly duel, Laura Jean was the wonderful kit creater for the Divas and Darlene was the kit creator for the Dazzlers. We got an awesome kit from LJ and this is the details LJ sent:



Our theme this month is Umbrellas! Believe it or not, National Umbrella Day is February 10th. Darlene and I thought it would be fun to think spring. since we have seen too much white stuff this winter


Here are the contents of the kit I sent:
Images: Sophie (Whipper Snapper Designes) Single Umbrella (Stamping Bella). Row of umbrellas (Stampendous)

Patterned paper: Hello Summer (Echo Park)
Accessories: 3D flower (K&Co), White "pretty ribbon" (Hobby Lobby), all other ribbon (SU!), White Bow (paper studio), Butterfly Chipboards (Heidi Swapp) Asst Buttons, Twine (MME).

Well I must say it was a fun, fun, fun kit to create with. I tried to use as much of the kit as I could. I loved the little girl and her umbrella and couldn't wait to color up the image.

Here is my kit....

i used the little flower in the corner to offset the orange circle in the upper left hand corner. I colored the image with copids and tried to use the colors that were the closest to the dsp. I used the umbrella image for the inside with the same colors....here it i:

I must apologize for the pictures. They are kind of dark as I had to take them inside with overcast skies. 

Thank you for stopping by please stop by the other ddd's blogs and see how they used their kits, I am sure you will not be disappointed...

Until next time,
Hugs,
Carol

Art Impressions Challenge have a heart

I have had a love of AI stamps every since I was introduced to them by my friend Cheryl when she purchased some fronts and backs at a garage sale. She didn't know if they were current or not so I went to the internet and walla I discovered AI stamps. I have been picking them up every once in awhile ever since. I found the AI challenge after one of my sweet friends submitted a card and won....I am now checking the AI blog to see awesome creations and fun cards. This challenge asks that you use a heart on your creation. For my card I used the Stuck in the 80's set. I found the designer paper in my stash from a paper pack I bought quite a while ago. The brown paper is early expresso from SU and the red is Cherry Cobble also from SU. I paper pieced the outfits and used copics to color the rest of the image. So without further chatter here is my card:


And here is the inside of my card:





As you can see I used layered hearts in the corners on the front and I carried the hearts to inside of my card as well.

Thank you for stopping by, I do appreciate your taking a look..

Until next time,
Hugs,
