CQC Techno

Hello everyone! I had every intention of posting yesterday but the weather put the internet on hiatus. Ugh! I just hate this severe wind! And then I think my computer had some technical issues with wanting to connect with the internet so that was why there was no post. I had a most fantastic weekend with my friend Sherry! And I feel like I accomplished quite a bit! So much fun!!! Right now I am having an iced chai tea latte and a piece of pumpkin bread at Starbucks so I can use their internet - lol! Then I will do a little shopping and meet Sherry for lunch before I head to Lakewood and the New Catalog Premier Party!!! I can't wait to see the new catalog! Woohoo!!

So here is the card that I would have posted yesterday. I used the sketch from Techno Stamper and the color challenge from ColorQ. I really like the way watercoloring looks on the Crumb Cake!

  • Card base is Whisper White
  • Cut a piece of Gingham Garden designer paper in half diagonally and adhere to a piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock then adhere to card base
  • Stamp the flower image from Peaceful Petals in VersaMark onto Crumb Cake and emboss with white emboss powder
  • Watercolor image with a blender pen and Elegant Eggplant and Daffodil Delight inks and outline image with a little Crumb Cake
  • Adhere panel to a piece of Elegant Eggplant and then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp the greeting onto a strip of Daffodil Delight with Elegant Eggplant and flag the end then adhere to card
  • Tie a piece of white baker's twine through a vintage faceted button and adhere to card
There you have it! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  1. Very pretty - love the flower stamped on Crumb Cake and coloured with purple - lovely effect! Thanks for playing along with us at the ColourQ this week!

  2. Just uploaded my card to the colour Q gallery and can see we used the same technique on our cards - yet they both look quite different! just thought I'd pop over and let you know how much I like yours too. Enjoy the party - looking forward to reading all about it.

  3. Such a lovely card, Deb, love your flower! I too enjoyed last nights event and the catalog is awesome! Am looking forward to preorder as I am sure you will love that too, always an exciting time of year! thanks for joining in the fun at the colourQ and happy stamping!
