Friday Mashup #118 & Top Tip Tuesday #105

Oh bummer!!   While I was preparing my card to post to the Friday Mashup #118, I ran out of time and the link closed:(  But, you still get to see it because I’m going to point the way to a different challenge over at Top Tip Tuesday #105🙂

Here’s your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project using the colors “Pool Party, Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral & (Smoky Slate or Soft Suede) “.
  2. Create a project with a “Nature Theme”.
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a “Nature Themed project using the Challenge Colors”.

I think I did pretty good with this one; lots of nature (Stampin’ Up! Nature Walk (retired) All Stampin’ Up! supplies.  I used Pool Party, Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, and Soft Suede.  However, I did add some Wild Wasabi on the leaves;)

Top Tip Tuesday

I will be a guest designer at Top Tip Tuesday this week:)  One of the sponsors will be Fred She Said!  Not only does Tracey have beautiful digital art, a lot of it’s pre colored!  Yeah for me!  I don’t color well:(  Whether you’re like me, or you love to color, the choice is yours at Fred She Said!  This week you have a chance to win a great prize to the Fred She Said store, so be sure to check out Top Tip Tuesday!

I have two cards today, one is for the guest spot and one is because I just love FSS!  Here’s the card I made to guest, you can click on it to make it larger:

I did NOT color this myself!  This is  pre colored digital art from Fred She Said, called Daisies & Ladybugs.   Do you love that background?  Well, I’m going to tell you about a freebie in a few minutes;)  I love the Daisies & Ladybug set!  If you look through my blog, you will find a number of cards with this set:)

I’ve only made a few one layer cards, and this is one of them.  Digital images are great for one layer cards!  I hope you will join the challenge for a chance to win the Fred She Said prize!

Now for my second card, you can click on it to make it larger:

This is NOT my original design!  I found a card over at SplitCoastStampers and had to CASE it!  (Copy And Share Everything) First I copied it and now I’m sharing it:)  For the original card, please click here. The original card is much more vintage, I’m more CAS (Clean And Simple).  After making it, I think my image is too small, I’ll change that if I make another;)

Here is that lovely background paper!  This image is also Fred She Said, called Wistful Emma or Bride. If you click on the title, it will take you to the store where you will find Emma, and if you scroll down, you will find the background Freebie! (you can also click “Freebie”)

Wistful Emma comes in a number of different colors, or you can color her yourself, if you just want to;)  LOL  Supplies will be listed below.

Thanks for coming by today, I hope you all have a great week!  See you soon:)
