This is a card I made for an inspiration challenge on SCS. It was a menswear site, and I chose this photo.
I loved the bold graphic lines of gray, and the rich deep pink (now that I look at it again, it's almost red, but raspberry fizz is what I saw!)
Here's what I came up with,
This is the first time I've used Inside Out Thank You. Isn't that an awesome sentiment? Love it.
Enjoy your day!

Trying out the vellum layering again today, along with a little pocket inspired by Melissa. It's not exactly how she made hers, but I played around with the papers until I liked how it looked.

It's time for Papertrey Ink's monthly Blog Hop! For June, we were challenged with an inspiration photo, with some color recipies and layouts. You could work with any one or all the choices. I decided to play with the colors and some of my new products.

I'm putting together a set of cards for my sister-in-laws, and today I added this one to the set...
We will be seeing them in July for a reunion at Siesta Key Beach, so I wanted to include something with shells. I had fun playing with a product called mud puddles, that looks like sand. I had purchased it a long time ago and it had dried up a little. But I broke it up and used some flower soft glue to adhere it. Turned out okay!
Thanks for looking!

My sweet stepmom is celebrating her birthday this week. I made this for her, using Gatsby Glamour and Delightful Dalhias. I've not made cards without green leaves, so using the Soft Stone was something new! I love the softness of it. Hope she likes it!
I've also made some cards using the Sweet Sunday Sketch for this week,

Using my plaid impression plate, I went for a look of a trellis for my Make it Monday card this week. After embossing, I used different shades if blue and even a little lavender chalk and applied them with my finger. I started with the leaves from Turning a New Leaf, and then used flowers from Natural Beauties. I filled in a little more with the leaves from that set, after the flowers were stamped.
Did a little stamping just for fun! No contests, hops or needs... This is the result,

Well, I don't have a baby like Ashley, so I used a Target wipe to give this technique a try! And... I have a very limited supply of re-inkers, so I chose Ocean Tides, Aqua Mist, and Melon Berry for my colors. The wipes worked just fine, and I ended up making three cards, not just one! I used the inspiration from Dawn's post this week to make all my cards the same to make up a quick and fun gift set.

Not having any kids in school anymore, I chose to make a notepad for a coworker whose last day is coming up soon. Working with the Happy Trails set, was fast and easy! The themes of pencils and pens were perfect for the inside of my pad. I used Spring Moss, Canyon Clay, and Summer Sunrise. The print is from the First Fruits pattern paper pack.
Here are my inside looks

I have Feather Finery on loan from my buddy PJ, and am really enjoying it! I made this as an Anniversary card, and for the new color throwdown challenge of Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo and Bravo Burgandy (I had to substitute with Scarlet Jewel.)
