VC Rocks! Blog Hop Color My World

Hi, and thanks for hopping with us today on VC Rocks! first blog hop for 2011. Today's hop theme is Color My World, and we have to use coloring of some kind on our projects.

You may have come here from Jane Hignite's awesome blog, Stamp With Jane, but if you get lost along the way you can go back to the VC Rocks! blog and find your way again, plus while you are there, check out what gorgeous project by Debbie Peterson is featured on the home page.

My first share for today is a card made with a new set from the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog called On The Grow. I just love this little scooter, it is so summery, and of course, being the girly girl that I am, I had to make it Pretty in Pink and Melon Mambo. I colored it using Stampin' Up Stampin Write Markers. They are awesome! I also added some Pear Pizazz, Daffodil Delight, Bashful Blue for the sponged sky, and Pear Pizazz Print Pattern DSP from the Level 1 Hostess Pack. I used Crystal Effects for the headlight, and Pretty in Pink 1/8" ribbon and a Pretty in Pink Brad for the sentiment which is punched with the Word Window punch.

I hope you like my little scooter. It really screams for glitter, but I forgot to add before taking the picture, so it may have to do without.

My last share for today is this gorgeous card:

This is the last card we made in class with Michelle Zindorf. We used the Nature Walk and Pocket Silhouettes stamp sets for this card and loads of Michelle's Brayering tricks to get this masterpiece. Colors used are are So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and a few others that I can't remember, lol. Hopefully I will be able to remember how to make the cards better than I can remember the colors. I just hope I can retain enough that I can make something that would make her proud. Thanks for allowing me to share these with you.
