Yep, it's Tuesday again and you know what that means.  It's time to Try Stampin' On Tuesday!  And that is exactly what I have been doing since  7:30 this morning.  Of course I am writing this on Monday and you will be reading it on Tuesday -- not to mix you up or anything.  Actually I will be doing the same thing tomorrow, as I am prepping for Saturday's card event.  I have decided not to call them "classes" anymore because that would infer that I am teaching something.  Nope, usually my participants are teaching me new things.  So I must come up with a new name for our group events -- adding it to my very long list of things to do (any suggestions would be welcome)!!

Getting right to the point today (pick yourself up from the floor), here is my creation for this week's challenge:

At first I thought this flower was a Daylily, but now that I see this picture, I realize it is a Gladiolas.  Fortunately for me Gladiolas come in many shades of color!!  Products used:  Fast & Fabulous Level II Hostess and Perfect Punches Stamp Sets; Cherry Cobbler, Riding Hood Red, and Watercolor Cardstock; Sunny Garden Designer Series Paper; Black Staz-On and Cherry Cobbler Classic Inks; Scalloped Oval XL and Scalloped Trim Border Punches; Daffodil Delight 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon; and Watercolor Wonder Crayons:  Cherry Cobbler, Riding Hood Red, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Basic Gray, Baja Breeze, and River Rock.
This is what the inside looks like.
And this is the design CherylAnn provided for Try Stampin' on Tuesday Week #6.
Has it dawned on you yet that I am using the same technique??  Yep, I decided I am going to try to use my Watercolor Wonder Crayons (watercolor technique) for all of the challenges in March.  Not sure if the next two designs will be appropriate for watercoloring, but I will be trying my hardest.

Okay, you know the drill:  get your stamps out and get inky, it's time to Try Stampin' On Tuesday!!  Click on the link to go directly to CherylAnn's blog for more information.  Have fun and thanks for playing with us.

  1. Oh, very pretty! I like the detail on the inside. I always decorate the inside of my cards, too.

  2. Very gorgeous card ... love the color combination!

  3. I like the effect of the front. Are the flowers cut out? Nice job.

  4. The watercoloring technique is superb - and very effective. It's such a fun technique. Thanks for sharing, and if I think of a name for your "class" I'll forward it on.

  5. Hey, I just saw your card on Blog Finds of the Day on Late Night Stampers. Good going. It's a beautiful card.
