Colour Create Challenge and Sneak Peek Day #2

I hope you all enjoyed yesterdays sneak peeks. Today I am sharing with you not 1 but 2 of the Wags N' Whiskers images from the new summer release.

This weeks COLOUR CREATE CHALLENGE is brought to us by "Deanne" and the colours she has chosen are "Cream, Aqua, Chocolate and Khaki" with the optional extra of "Circles".

Here is a little inspiration
for you....great colours don't you agree!!

This weeks sponsor is "Michelle's Scrapbooking" and the prize is is a set of rubber stamps designed by our teamie Di.

The adorable image I am using on my card is "CHILLIN' OUT".

I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I used my nesties for the frames and embossed the frame, the background and the sentiment with CB folders. I paper pieced the umbrella and used my Ek Success punch for the wave borders.

Be sure to stop by the Colour Create Blog as my lovely teamies have some fabulous creations to inspire you. ALSO.......we are having a DT search.... so if you are interested be sure to check that out too!!

I hope you will have time to play along with us this challenge....I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Day #2 of the WAGS N' WHISKERS sneak peeks.

The NEW RELEASE and BLOG HOP will start tomorrow and there are some amazing prizes to be I hope you will be able to join us!!

The stamps will also go on sale tomorrow too.....I bet you can hardly wait!!!

I am using the sweet image "SUMMER FUN" for my card today.

I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I punched the corners with a corner rounder and my scallop scissors for the purple. The green borders were punched with my Ek Success scallop punch. I also added some flat backed pearls and a charm.

Love both cards, but the first is my favorite! I LOVE how you added the wave feature onto the circle cut out. What a perfect way to tie it all together! Your "design mind" is amazing!!!! I would really love to see what you could do with a House Mouse stamp! Best, Curt
