Back To School With Primary Colors

Today I’m working with some Cuttlebug folders and primary colors of Red, Blue and Yellow just like our GC #116 color challenge. I used Dew Drops Memento inks along with Distress inks and hand made my writing paper to look like grade school paper.

I’m not sure who graphic this is, and there is only one stamp used (Hero Arts Autumn). I’ve added some old Rick Rack and a Bee charm.

Hope you are having a save and dry day out East.

Take Care. Stampin’ Hugs Vada

A Truly Happy Person.

Bright Blue, Olive Green and Brown were the colors in this small piece of designer paper. So Umbrella Man came to mind! He’s kind of a World Traveler today. My stamps are from Stampers Anonymous and TAC. Thanks again for coming.

Let Your Dreams Soar.

Today I’m working with some beautiful designer paper from Gypsy Chic (Butterfly Garden). Plus I used two new stamps from TAC, called Fairy Wishes. If you look close enough to the background, you can see this beautiful bird cage with butterfly. I added chalk highlights to the fairy’s face and glitter pen to the wings. Hope you are having a wonderful week-end, not to many left before school starts. My goodness were did our summer go?

Babes and Tots

Gingersnaps Chestnut Challenge this time is Babies and Tots.
So get out some of those great childhood images and play along with us. Today I have chosen three images from “Rubber Cottage” to make some little note cards, plus I’m using a technique from the current newsletter called “Vellum Sentiments”. My design paper is from Basic Grey.

The fun little word stamps are from TAC. Copic Markers were used to color the images, and pinking shears were used to cut the edges of the vellum. Just a fun little “Tom Boy look”. Each card is just less than 5 x 5 inches square.

There’s still time to join us as this challenge doesn’t close until September 4th 2011. Thank you for your time and please stop into Gingersnaps to see all the beautiful artwork that’s posted.

Stampsmith Challenge #19 is “Teal and Yellow” Any stamp.

Today I’m playing along with Lynne and ladies at Stampsmith on their color challenge of “Teal and Yellow”. I don’t know whose graphic this is, so if anyone does know, please e-mail me so I can give that person proper credit… Love these little girls and I have used them many times. The graphic is black and white, so I chalked in some color. My stamp is from The Stampsmith. I hope you will join us and play along with this color challenge.

Thank you so much for stopping in today. Stampin’ Hugs Vada
