|Today is all waiting for spring as we sit patiently waiting for winter to pass by. It is cold, raining, snowing and sleeting here in Memphis – such a drastic change from the 70 degree weather yesterday. I think hydrangeas just shout spring is in the air so I used Northwoods Hydrangea Stamp and Rangers Distress Markers to create my card with. I used Graphic 45 Place in Time “March” paper and Cut Out paper was the perfect colors to go with my colored image. Once I got my image colored with my Tim Holtz distress markers and fussy cut out I added Ranger Distress Stickles to the leaves and a few of the flowers to help give the glistening affect that you see on hydrangeas. I added the fussy cut image and tag to the front of my card with pop dots over the Pink Paislee pleated ribbon. I hope you try using Graphic 45 Place in Time paper collection for more than just making a calendar with. ALSO…. I want to share with you I will be the Guest Designer for Graphic 45 on Jan 21st. I am over the moon with being invited. I sure hope you stop by. Hugs Pammejo|
I love the Fourteen Collection from Crate Paper, it is so bright and fun. I used the Be Mine and Cupid papers to make my card, the hearts are fussy cut from the paper and placed on pop dots. Don’t you love it when the paper so easily becomes an embellishment. The great border is with EK Success Scallop Border and a bit of burgundy paper. I stamped the “Lots & Lots of Love” from a Valentine Hero Arts sentiment set using Memento Black Ink. I hope you are having a lovely day. Hugs Pammejo
Paper Patch Crafts has a challenge where you can create a card based on a sketch being shared on Card Sketch Challenge event. According to the rules you have until Jan. 13th midnight to post a picture of your never seen, brand new project under the event. Here is my interpretation of the PageMaps sketch that is being used. I made my card using the Carta Bella Beautiful Moments Collection which includes paper, stickers, borders and die cuts.
I inked all of my pieces with Chestnut Roan Ink before I glued them to my card base. I tore my border edges before I inked them and stapled the border into place.
I wrapped brown twine around both the card front and made a mimic bird nest for the bird to add a bit more interest to my card. Place the birds on pop dots as well as the circle which I added a piece of bling to. The sentiment is a rub on from Bazzill. I sure hope you try your had at the challenge going over at Paper Patch Crafts because the prize is a really nice set of stamps from The Stamps of Life. Hugs Pammejo

I love the Color Inspiration on Scrapbook News and Review, they always make me want to create. Today I made this beautiful card using GCD Studios papers, Graphic 45 Metal Flowers and SRM Thank You Sentiment.
Here is the photo that I was inspired by, hope you try your had at making something beautiful using it.
Of course I have to share a closer look at the fabulous metal flowers that I molded a bit and did some paint streaks on them using my white paint dabber. Once the paint dried I layered them together added a brad and placed it next to my SRM Thanks a Bunch Sticker. I hope you try doing color challenges. Hugs Pammejo
Supplies: GCD Studio paper, Graphic 45 metal flowers, SRM Thank You Sentiments, white paint dabber.
Ever wonder how in the world can I keep up with everything that I see or hear when I am surfing the web. Well, I made this journal so I would be able to keep all Ideas, Tips and Techniques in it. I always have it in reach and have made tabs so it is easy to locate which section I would like to lookor write in.
I made my Journal with Jillibean Soup Eggdrop papers, fussy cut some little umbrella from one of the pieces of paper and gave them dimension with some pop dots, buttons and strings. I hand drew the handle for my umbrellas using a Zig Marker and add some small gingham ribbon to them. Always keep something with you to write and sketch in and it never hurts to make it pretty with paper.
