Fusion Challenge

Hello Everyone!

After WEEKS of being on the road, we have finally returned home to our adorable little kitties and our own comfy beds! I thought the Glamping Fusion Card Challenge was perfect for me today! I am debuting my brand new little camper die too, and I LOVE it!  You can get all the details and link up your glamping creation at the Fusion Blog right here: http://fusioncardchallenge.blogspot.com/2017/08/fusion-glamping.html

Being on vacation was a combination of fun, frenzy, and a little fret! We have been worried about the wake of destruction from Harvey and Irma, and our hearts and prayers go out to all the people cleaning up, digging out, and drying off! Sometimes you just wish you had a little camper to get away from it all!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Live your life in color!

I drew most of my inspiration from the photo, but then I added a tiny little snowflake on the top, creating a little fusion! I like this color palette too, soft and organic!

Hello Everyone!

Are you in the mood for a little soft color with a sweet sentiment? I sure am! I have been crafting all week long in the colors of fall, with deep rich autumn shades and those Halloween brights! Today I’m playing along with the Fusion Challenge and I just love the color palette this week!

I was really drawn to the soft pastels of the color palette in the inspiration photo. I used the black and white stripe pattern on the tag, and added soft shades of pink, blue, and gold. I also made little balloons and round garland to mimic the round shapes of the photo. From the sketch, I used the big round circle for my sentiment, and a pointy element on the bottom. It was a good fusion this week!

Fancy Heart

Hi everyone! It’s a beautiful day outside, so it’s time to celebrate a little love in the air with this fancy heart! I know this color combination is a little unique, but it actually fits quite well with this week’s Fusion Card Challenge!

I was inspired by the color combination and the fluidity of the paper hearts dancing in the wind.

It’s time for another challenge over at Fusion! This one s a fun one – -look at that great purple and orange color! Get all the details and play along right here: http://fusioncardchallenge.blogspot.com/2015/10/fusion-challenge-purple-poppies.html

IMG_2273-wm

I have a special place in my heart for those California orange poppies! My fiance and I took a trip to San Francisco to see the sights and meet some of his family. We took a boat cruise of the bay and learned all about the Golden Gate bridge and how the color reflects the California poppy. My future family offered to take us out to a special dinner and we said we had always wanted to try a famous California eatery we had heard so much about, In and Out Burger! They loved that idea too! They took us on a California cruise over the Golden Gate Bridge, through Sausalito, Mill Valley, over the Bay Bridge, all the way down to Alameda and Castro Valley. We stopped at In and Out Burger, and saw the giant windmills and fields full of orange poppies near the hills of Alameda. We were there for only a week, visiting all the famous San Francisco hot spots, but I know I could stay a lifetime.

My fusion card is a salute to Northern California, fusing elements of the poppies, the purple, and the sketch.

Thanks for joining me today!

I just love all these rich reds, deep oranges and blacks in the inspiration photo, and tried to bring that into my card. I fused some of the shapes like a round wreath and balanced images on the side, but mostly I used some of my favorite elements from the photo, making that big owl draw you right in with his hypnotic eyes! He’s ready for Hallow’s Eve. Are you?
