Getting Sentimental--Flourishes Contest!

Hi, everyone! There is a contest going on over at Flourishes, and you don't even have to own any Flourishes stamps to play, which is great, because I don't, even though I love Flourishes stamps. Check out the contest here! I found out about it from Latisha's blog. Latisha is one of our regular PTI swappers, PLUS she is on the design team for Flourishes stamps. Thanks for the heads up Latisha! It is called "Getting Sentimental". You are supposed to make your sentiment your focal point. This is a really neat thing to do, especially with all the amazing background papers that are out there now.

Well, as you may have noticed by now, I love color and lots of it! The brighter the better! One of my fave color combos is blue and orange--electrifying! Energizing! And that's what I need most days--I am such a slug! This first card I wanted a masculine tone for. All products are SU except brads, which are Bazzill. The DP is retired I think it is called Jersey Shore. Colors are Pumpkin Pie, Brilliant Blue, and Wild Wasabi.


This next card couldn't be more different--very soft and feminine. I had actually had this BG piece lying around for some time--just hadn't used it for anything. Thought it would be perfect for this contest. I chalked the embossed flowers (Cuttlebug), embossed the greeting on vellum, and covered my glue dots with buttons! CS is Stampers Select White from PTI, Pink Pirouette and Vellum CS from SU. Ribbon is SU, buttons are from my stash, fiber is good old DMC.









This card I made a couple days ago for my brother's birthday. He is in Iraq. Again with the blue and orange! This time I used Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point, and Tangerine Tango, along with some old Scenic Route DP that matches those colors really well. I used an old Mojo Monday sketch for the layout. Since SU doesn't make markers in their In Colors, I had to cut and paste these images to get them multicolored. First I stamped "B is for Birthday" in Kiwi, then Pacific, then Tangerine. Cut out the "b" and layered it over the kiwi image, then punched out the asterisk from the tangerine and layered it over the "b". Did the same with the party hats. For the circle I used my Marvy punch, then attached the punched scallop circle to a strip of CS to put it back in the punch, lining up the scallops with the points of the punch, that way you get a pinked circle--more masculine I think. I think this card sort of fits with the Getting Sentimental theme of the contest.
Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to stamp today!

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.
