Mellow Yellow ~ TSOC

Good morning y'all!  Vickie is hosting this week's new challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters and her theme is called "Mellow Yellow".  With the Farmhouse style being all the rage right now, I made this card for the challenge:

I started by building the Marianne Designs Ladder and House Plants using soft shades of yellow, green and white.  The background is embossed using Stampin' Up Brick EF.  

I also added a Cottage Cutz Orchid, which I colored using copics and gave the flowers sparkly yellow centers.


Does this meet the requirements for "Mellow Yellow"?

You can find all the details and join in on the fun here.

Magical Wishes ~ Double D

Hello friends~  It's time for a new challenge over at Double D Challenges and we've got a fun theme I think you'll love!  We're looking for anything with a rainbow, unicorn or mermaid.  

All the sets I used on today's card are retired but still very much loved.
MFT's End Of The Rainbow is the perfect soft landing for this Magical Dragon.

He's making a magical wish on this cupcake from MFT's All The Cupcakes.

The sentiment is from Paper Smooches Magic Sampler and the star sequins are from my stash.

Join in on the fun here!

Here's the inspiration photo:

Sweet Strawberries ~ DRU Challenge

Good morning friends~ There's a new challenge starting up over at the Dies R Us Challenge blog and if you recall, the theme is "Anything Goes" all year long!  
This makes it so easy for us, as a design team, and for you, as a participant! 

I started by embossing a quilted design on the white card stock base.  I added a strip of gingham from my scrap box and added two die cut ric-rac strips from Spellbinders Ric Rac .
 
The sweet Strawberries from Elizabeth Craft Design made for a cheerful summer greeting.

Sugar Egg Easel Card ~ TSOC

Are you enjoying beautiful spring weather yet?  It's coming along here on the east coast and what better way to celebrate than to create a springy, Easter card for the new challenge starting over at The Sisterhood of Crafters, where the theme is "EASTER / SPRING".  

I was inspired by this card made by my team mate Diane a few weeks ago.  Her card made me think of the sugar eggs that you see all decorated up for Easter.   

Of course my version is flat and made out of paper, but you get the idea. 

I created an easel style card, using Memory Box Half Dozen Eggs to create the sugar egg.  I added this sweet Marianne Designs Bunny to the inside of the egg.

  I don't know if you can tell, but the center of the egg is popped up using foam tape but the outside edge of the egg is glued directly down giving it an ovalesque shape.  I added some Forget Me Nots from The Greetery and the eggs are from the Marianne Designs Bunny set. 

The "Happy" is from Frantic Stamper and the "spring" banner is an oldie from Taylored Expressions. 

I hope you'll visit The Sisterhood of Crafters to play along with this fun spring challenge.
