Clean & Quick 20 and Step-It Up – Beautiful Peacock – Tie-Dye Technique

Yay for Tuesday! I went ALL weekend without creating, and let me tell you, it almost broke me. I was SO excited to jump back in today to make this fun card using a Sale-A-Bration set, Beautiful Peacock. I’m playing along with the Inspire. Create. Color Challenge! This month’s color challenge was Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, and Melon Mambo. I love the tie-dye technique on the peacock, and can’t wait to show you how I did it!

I think these colors are so lovely together, especially when you are able to mix them together to create NEW colors! By using the Daffodil Delight with the Melon Mambo, I was able to make a sort of Mandarin Orange color in the peacock feathers.

I made both a Clean & Quick version and a stepped up version of this card. The stepped up version added some swirly Black Metallic Thread and shiny Rhinestones. I love both of these cards and think they are a perfect way to look forward to some warmer, spring weather.

So fun to participate in the Inspire. Create. Color Challenge this month! Pop on over and check out all of the other wonderful projects from some very talented demonstrators!

Party Pandas Side by Side Card

I made this Side by Side Card about two weeks ago and it has been sitting on my filming table since. I just wasn’t sure I liked how the Foxy Friends set looked with this card. But then, I received my Party Pandas Sale-A-Bration set and inspiration hit! I love how these twirling, dancing, happy pandas look on this card!

The bright colors are also really fun on this whimsical card. It’s perfect for kids both big and small! The Glitter Enamel Dots really punch up the fun factor on this project with their hint of shimmery goodness. I can’t help but smile when I look at this adorable card.

Clean & Quick Cards SERIES 12 – Tranquil Tulips

My go to color combination when making a feminine birthday card includes Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum, and Powder Pink. I think these color together are so delicate and beautiful, I just love it! And using the Stylized Birthday sentiment ties it all together so beautifully. The icing on the cake is adding a few pearls to accentuate this pretty scene.

I also really love how the Stylized Birthday stamp looks when paired with a bright color, like Melon Mambo on my Sweet Birthday Card. It’s perfect for any Birthday!
