Off the Wall Craftiness

Hi Friends!

Today, I have some fun news to share. Sweet Kim from Off the Wall Craftiness invited me to be on her newly formed design team. 

I always enjoy playing along in her challenges.  She has such fun colors in her weekly challenges that I just love.  Let’s take for instance, this week’s colors



So bold, bright and FUN, right??!!!  I love these colors.

For my card, I tried to stay consistent with the theme of the photos ( you do not have to do that, I just used all of it as inspiration).  And here’s what I came up with.


I dry embossed the black panel, ruffled the ribbon with red line tape on the backside of the paper. Then I mounted the entire panel using foam dots (this is necessary since the ribbon really elevates the piece).  I stamped the chandelier from Lawn Fawn’s  “How Delightful” in versamark and embossed it with black embossing powder, and punched it out with a circle punch.  Next, I arranged and attached some buttons, the chandelier, and stamped the sentiment.  At this point, the card looked to blah for me, so I blinged it up by adding some gems and a little bow on top of the chandelier. 

Before I forget, of course, Kim has a great sponsor for the challenge this week!  Scrolls Work is offering an assortment of rubber stamps!  That’s right free rubber! Woohoo!


Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you decide to play along.  Can’t wait to see what you do with these fun colors.  I will be using them again, I’m sure!

Hugs and Blessings

Congratulations, Lynette! I'm happy for you!

Beautiful card. Such fun colors, too. I'm feeling under the weather at the moment, but I'll keep those colors in mind as I start to feel better.

Congratulations on the design team, Lynette! When I first saw your card on the OTWC blog, (before reading) I instantly thought of you, because the background looked familiar and plus, because it was such a fabulous card, of course! The ribbon is adorable! Your designs are always impressive, so I'm excited to see even more creations from you for the OTWC challenges! :)
