Grads, A Queen, and Mixed Media

 Splitcoaststampers Mix-Ability 13 challenge is doodling and using a minium of two mediums. Ouch! Doodling is something I have always stayed away from but here I am trying by doodling down the sides of my panel with a thin marker.

I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist/Pink Party and Dragonfly to get my sprayed colors. I inked a metal frame and stamped on the top in Tim Holtz Distress Ink/Rusty Hinge.

The tickets were free digis from the Scrap-A-Licious blog. I added some decorative tape I purchased from Michaels Arts and Crafts.

Cardstock is Stampin'Up! Crushed Curry and Night of Navy. Also, white cardstock from scraps.

My card is also for the Queen for the Day #162, Jeanne S. This is the card I cased...for the sketch.

I'm entering my card at Through the Craftroom Door challenge blog-Anything Goes
Also, I am entering the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog-Anything Goes

I think that wraps it up for me for the weekend. Unfortunately, we are expecting rain and cooler temps Saturday. Boo Hoo  I wanted to work in my yard. Hope your weekend is full and warmth and pretty sunshine.

In the Kitchen


Kathy Bradley is bringing us her last challenge for the month of April at CCEE Stampers. The theme is In the Kitchen. Make a card using food, appliances, a whole kitchen scene, utensils-anything that can be found in the kitchen.

I have a Spellbinders Exclusive Dies Collection for Our Daily Bread Designs Apron and Tools die that I'm using for this challenge. I think it is so cute and includes the apron and utensils. I punched holes to run the ribbon through. I've also added a recipe inside. If you would like, here it is:

 Chocolate Chip Pound Cake
1 box yellow cake mix
1 box 4 1/4 oz. Instant Chocolate Pudding
8 oz. sour cream
1 cup oil
4 eggs
1/4 cup water
6 oz. chocolate chips

Mix dry ingredients-cut in sour cream
Beat eggs-add oil and water
Mix liquid and dry ingredients
Add chocolate chips

Pour into greased and floured tube or bundt pan
Bake at 325 1 hour to 1 1/4 hours

I don't think I've tried this recipe and don't know where I got it. But, it sounds good. If you try it, give me a report. I believe there are some different recipes out there for this cake.

We hope you'll come over to the CCEE Stampers challenge and play along with us. Just add your card with the inlinkz tool.

My card is entered into the Simon Says Stamp blog challenge-Anything Goes

Mixed Media

I wanted to try the Mix-Ability challenge on Splitcoaststampers. That's a really fun challenge and Dina Kowal, the hostess, has sooooo many ideas and informative tutorials on mixed media. The challenge for this week can be found here.

This week's challenge is Pop Goes Your Color Wheel! You can use all warm colors with a pop of a cool color or all cool colors with a pop of a warm color. I chose all warm with one cool

The colors I'm using came from Tattered Angels glimmer mist/Dragonfly (blue) and Party Pink. Also, I used dylusions ink spray/postbox red and pure sunshine.

Other items used:  BasicGrey flourish corner stamps, pearls, crimper

I also made my card for the Queen for the Day challenge #161. The new queen is Joyce Ann aka AnniePanda. This is the card I chose to case.

Entering the challenge at Little Red Wagon #182 (Crimp my Style) to use a crimper on your project.
I crimped a panel down the right side of my card.
