Yellow & Blue Secret Garden

I haven't been able to add photos to blogger for some reason, which is why I haven't uploaded for a while.

Here is a card I made for the Queen for the Day Challenge (click on the link above to go to my Splitcoast Gallery page for this card.)

Queen myself - REDOs

Today what I decided to do for the Queen for the Day Challenge is that everyone gets to be Queen!
So you get to go through your cards from the last year and CASE yourself!
I've been having a very crafty time here as you can see.  I made 5 redos.
This first card uses a heart mask and sponging with piercing.  Colors - Marina Mist, white.

For this card I colored the flowers with two different colors, added some piercing and twine.
Colors - Island Indigo, Black, White, Not Quite Navy, new SAB patterned paper.

I used my square punch to punch out some fun colored patterned papers, glued it onto the card, then embossed!  I used the apothecary accents shape with the sentiment from "You're Amazing"
Colors - Old Olive, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, white

I embossed with stripes (on an angle) and distressed with edges of the kraft background.
The cone is simply a triangle (embossed with lattice) and the cupcake punch.  I also used an embossed frame.
Colors - Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Midnight Muse, Choc Chip

Cut out the flower from Bloomin with Kindness and used some apothecary accents frames (pierced the dark purple one).
Colors - Crumb Cake, Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant.
Here are some small closeups.

Secret Garden FUN!

Playing with my fun new "Secret Garden" set and framelits!
I made this one for the challenges at Stampin' Royalty.
I used their colors from this week - not quite navy, soft suede, crumb cake and vanilla
and took some liberties with their sketch from last week!
Loved these colors - I had some patterned paper from the Festival of Prints DSP pack in these colors.
I used framelits and scoring.
The big blue flower is embossed with white and then I darkened some areas with blue marker.  The two smaller flowers I colored with 3 colors of maker.

This is one I made with "Secret Garden" yesterday.  I used an embossed frame with piercing and some framelits behind it.  The colors are cherry cobbler, pumpkin pie, vanilla and black.

LOVE again

Happy 2013! 
Here's my first card for the year.
I used the stamp set "you are loved"
The layout is from Try Stampin' on Tuesday.
The colors are from Hand Stamped Sentiments.
Primrose Petals, Pool Party and Black.  I used a piece of patterned paper from the new SAB that fit right in.
