Raspberry Suite Color Challenge # 21

Finally time to play along with a color challenge! It has been forever, but it was fun to sit down and finish a card!

Here is my take:

When I sat down to create this card, I pulled out supplies and techniques I had not used. Trying to put unused items to use!
Hope you all are keeping warm!


Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #11

Hope you had a wonderful 4th of July!  Got to sneak some time in to complete this color challenge.


And boy was it a challenge!  I love the bright pink and red together, but that green was just throwing me off!  So after a few false starts, here is what I came up with:


Again, I went to Tiny Bird!  He gets tons of ink around here!


Stamps: Amuse: bird, birdbath and grass, Hero Arts: tulip and flower, Papertrey Ink: sentiment, Autumn Leaves: flourish

Paper: Papertrey Ink and Making Memories

Ribbon: Michael’s

Ink: Palette, VersaMark

Copic Markers and Gelly Roll pens

Have a wonderful night!

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #10

Back again!  This time for Dawn’s Challenge for this week.


I love berry sorbet with the chocolate, but struggled with using the melon color.  As you can tell, I used such a small amount!  But I liked the way this card turned out.  Loving the flourishes!



Cardstock, Ink, Stamps: PTI

Punches: Friskars

Ribbon: Michael’s


I’m in the process of finishing some stuff up for my sister’s Disney trip.  Lots of cute goodies!  Have to remember to take photo’s!!

Have a good one!

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #9


This color challenge came at the perfect time!  I needed to make a card for a friend’s wedding and would you believe her color is green!  So this card will be headed to her!

My take on this challenge:


The fluer-de-lis is a solid stamp, but I stamped it lightly on a textured paper to get that effect.  Love the distressed paper edges lately too!


I did not add a sentiment to the out side of the card, instead it is on the inside as a congratulations for a wedding.  The wedding is in July and she picked these dresses for the bridesmaids from JCrew:


So how perfect is this card!!  And now it is done!  Thanks Dawn!


Stamps: Inkadoo, Papertrey Ink

Ink: Momento Bamboo Leaves and Tuxedo Black, Versa Mark

Paper: Bazzill, Paper Studio

Ribbon: Michael’s, Bazzill Basics

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #8


I want that chair!!  My home is not done in those girlie colors, but I can dream!

Well there must be baby on the mind here, because when I saw this color combo I thought it would make a sweet baby girl card.  Soooo, I was at Hobby Lobby and passed by the clearance section to find this little rocking horse stamp, and it was only $2.00!  So I brought her home and started my card for this challenge.  Now I wanted details, so I got details.  Why I ever thought it would be a good idea to thread those *tiny* brown buttons with linen thread is beyond me.  But once i got the thought in my head there was no turning back!  It took awhile, but I like the small detail!  




Note card from Amuse; ribbon from American Crafts; sentiment from Doodlebug Design; main image from Stampabilities: Rocking Horse; Flower stamp on saddle and  background from Hero Arts; Linen Thread from Stampin Up; Button and Ink from PTI; rick rac and yarn from my stash; 3D Crystal Lacquer on the eyes colored brown with my Copic E25.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #7

These colors Dawn has as her #7 challenge are just beautiful!  


When I saw these, an idea came into my head for this card.  I like the way it turned out, but I have decided I NEED a sewing machine!  Love the look of a stitched card, but making the faux needle holes took some time.  FYI, the PTI card stock does distress very nicely! Also, very rare for me to not use ribbon on a card!  



cardstock and main image are PTI; sentiment from Amuse; linen thread and punch from Stampin Up; button from Autumn Leaves; ink is Versa Mark.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a good one!

Raspberry Suite Challenge #6


Glad this one hit near a weekend!  I finally put my Guide Lines Two set into ink. ****Love it****,  left it on my craft table to play with a little more this afternoon!  This card is busy, but I loved the fun color combo.  The pattern reminded me of an iron gate we ran across while visiting Charleston



All paper and ink are Papertrey Ink; Stamps: Guide Lines Two and Simply Stationary from Papertrey, Polka Dot stamp from SU; small tag punch is Martha Stewart; ribbon from Offrey

Have a wonderful day!
