Wednesday WOWZER TIME!!!

19 Sep
Hello everyone.  It is me Jeannie, here with a fun, quick and easy WOWZER card today.
I am using the Sketch from Chick Challenges With Ippity CC44.
Here is my take on the sketch.
I am using 2 different sets.
The flower is from the set called, BECAUSE OF YOU.
The word “friends” is from the set called TIME FOR…FRIENDS & WINE.
I stayed pretty simple with my color scheme and spritzed the card with some matte Tattered Angels spray, since I could not get my glimmer mist unclogged! (ARGH!!!)
It still turned out lovely, I think!
I like how the flowers mimic “friends”.  Different, but the same.
I hope you have enjoyed my quick and easy card today.  This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana posting for I Heart {ippity}.  Have a great rest of the week!

Wowzers with {ippity}

I was getting ready to make my post for today and saw that there was one day left for Heather’s challenge on the Chick Challenges Blog and wanted to hurry and participate.
Here is the sketch for the challenge.
I rotated the sketch to the left and used it this way.
I am using the set called BECAUSE OF YOU.
The color combination of this card follows the challenge that is up at the HIPPITY WITH IPPITY blog.
 In addition to the colors it needed to be a wedding, anniversary type card.
 This was a fun color combination to work with, way out of my normal zone.
When the card flap is opened, you can see my loose interpretation of the sketch.
I made this for that someone special in my life!
I hope you have enjoyed my interpretations of the 2 challenges.  You still have time to join the one going on at the Get Hippity with Ippity site.
Here is the link for that!

Wednesday Wowzer & Giveaway announcement

11 Jan

 

I have been working with some very fun Embossing Powders from WOW.

This is a whole new line and I was so happy to find out I can use them on whatever I want now!

I knew the mushrooms from the Because of You set would be perfect for these powders.

My card is based on a sketch you can find on the Chick Challenges website.  It is Chick Challenge #10.
Because I photographed this indoors at night you can’t really see the shine of the powders.  I love embossing because it gives stamped images that extra Wow effect.

I layered the mushrooms with dimensional foam and since I need the red to stand-out, I used 2 layers of foam.  You can see the foam from this side shot.

 

Here is one last look, I just love the colors and patterns!
Remember I am now officially the Wednesday Wowzer girl..I sure hope I have WOWED you today!
