Twilight Tuesday Color Challenge #1

Hello Twi-Hards~ I have an exciting new type of TTIC for you today! A Color Challenge!!! This is going to be so much fun! Instead of having a theme to work with, we are going to be using colors to create our projects! Make anything you want! A card, layout, jewelry… anything! Here’s what I wrote on the TTIC blog (woah! My 2nd blog post for them this week!)

Greetings and welcome to Twilight Tuesday’s very first Color Challenge! Every couple of weeks, we will be giving you a brand new color challenge. This is going to be a lot of fun!

Your first Color Challenge is going to feature Edward’s coloring. The first color is Butterscotch for his eyes (when he isn’t hungry!), second is Alabaster for his pale, pale skin, and third is Reddish-Brown for his fabulous hair!

Have fun with this! Can’t wait to see what you all make!!!

So, as you can see, I’m pulling colors right from the books! But, your project does not have to be Twi-themed (but of course we would love it if it was!) Here’s my card:


Originally, I was going to do something with flowers… But then I came across this stamp set from Cosmo Cricket, and I just had to use it! The wood grain stamp and the owl are from their Happy Camper set… The swirls are from a company called Time Flies.


I used Adirondack (Ranger) embossing powder is Espresso for the wood, and black for the owl. Color Box’s Chalk Ink in Amber Clay for the swirls, accented with Ranger’s Distress Stickles in Vintage Photo (see how cool it looks Laura?!) I edged the card in more Amber Clay and a bit of Burnt Sienna. That’s it! Simple and cute, but I got the colors in! Now I want you to go and see the rest of the DT’s awesome projects!

Christmas Package

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team will be sharing projects that fit the theme, "Dear Santa, I've Been Good!" I used the sweet Christmas Package stencil (which frankly, can be used for plenty of other occasions too!), and a scrap I had leftover from the Chevron Stencil. Check out the full tutorial below.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
