Hello all! I've been slightly absent for a bit! I had a show last weekend so it's been a busy couple of weeks preparing!!! Now I just have to get through Thanksgiving!!!

So this week's Coloring Down the Lines challenge was to use More Mustard, Perfect Plum & Riding Hood Red or Perfect Plum, Marina Mist & Rose Red
Well, since I used Marina Mist last time I decided to go with the former!!!

Now you're maybe "hopping" here from Helen's blog! (If you're not, go visit!!!) Don't you just love her creation? I do!!!! She used some of the stuff we got at convention!!! Always so creative!!!

So here's my card!!!

The only stamp set used is Perfectly Penned! I'm kind of a tool junkie though! I used the Big Shot to emboss (chevron folder) & cut (framelits), & the Boho Blossoms punch!!! Add some bling & you're good to go!!!!

While everyone is doing Christmas cards (like I should be doing!!!) I really wanted to try a new technique I just learned from my friend Donna! Over at ButternutSage Designs, she has a great tutorial for the "kaleidoscope" method (along with tons of other great tutorials!!)!!
 It's a bit tricky at first, but packs quite a wow!!! 
I kind of used my own version of her technique!!!

It's kind of hard to tell, but I added Dazzling Details between some of the colors. It's really much more sparkly in person!

I think one comment about this color combination is that the More Mustard is soooooo orangy next to the Riding Hood Red!! Interesting combo of colors!!!

Now head on over to Sandy's blog & check out her design! I can't wait to see it!!!

Until next time.....

Happy Stampin'!!!


  1. WOW! is the choice word for this entry. I love the twist you put on Donna's kaleidoscope technique. I see the bling and I eventually saw the Chevron embossing -- with that gorgeous coloring, the embossing was the last thing I saw. Super job on the challenge. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Hugs.

  2. Joni, I love this card. What a technique. I don't know if I would be up for the challenge doing what you did. It's just lovely. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

  3. Thanx guys!!! Glad you like it!!! I wasn't sure on the colors at first, but I really like the way it turned out!!!!!
