Let's Roll!

It's time for a new challenge at Meljen's Designs.  This week we have a fabby, fun sketch for you to play with!

I used one of the new images for my project.  I fell in love with Happy Sushi as soon as I saw it!  It really made me smile!  You can find it in the shop along with all of the other new images for August.

Of course I had to use Wild Wasabi cardstock from Stampin' Up!  It was most appropriate.  I colored the image using Prismacolor pencils.  The card is actually embossed, but I can never seem to get it to show up in my pictures!  The sentiment is computer generated.

Bold Bright and Beautiful Blog Hop

Sorry everyone!  Not sure what happened!  I must have scheduled the post for the wrong time!!

Welcome to your next stop on the DeNami blog hop.  You should have come here from Jennifer's blog.  I am sure her inspiration was divine!  If you didn't come from Jennifer's blog and would like to start at the beginning, just hop to the DeNami Design blog.

For my project I used one of the boldest DeNami stamps I have, Small Solid Sweet Daisy.  It is retired, but is still available in the shop.

I knew I wanted to use bright summer colors, but I couldn't decide on what colors to use.  I knew orange and yellow, but needed the third color to set them off.  I was trying a pink and it just wasn't the look I was going for.  Then I looked down at my hands and saw my Jamberry Nails nail shields!  That was the inspiration I needed!

I also used the Assorted Greetings stamp set for the sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed my creation!  I haven't had much time to be creative, so it was nice to have a chance to play!

The next stop on your hop is Glenda.  I am sure you can't wait to see what she has in store for you!  But before you go be sure to comment on each blog along the way.  There are 2 $20 gift certificates up for grabs for 2 lucky commenters.  You have until 11:59 pm PST, Monday, August 13th to get your comments in.  There is also 1 certificate for one lucky participant (design team ineligible).

Up for a New Challenge Blog?

Meljen's Designs is sponsoring Songbird Challenges in their debut challenge.  The challenges are for cardmakers with a musical theme.  Challenges begin on Monday and run for two weeks.

I used Little Piano from Meljen's Designs and paper pieced it.  Since the paper is black, I had to reverse the image in word and print it on the backside of the paper.  I colored the heart with Prismacolor pencils.  The sentiment is computer generated and I and cut the banner shape.

Right now Meljen's Designs is having a Half-Price sale until August 15th!  Pop over to the shop and fill your cart today!
