MAKE IT MONDAY #289: BUILDING WREATHS WITH SMALL IMAGES

I tried to go outside the box for my card today. Yeah, not so happy with it. I always love Heathers stamping on kraft, but it feels so dark for me. But I will send it off, in the fall maybe??


The flowers are from Grand Finale and the sentiment was stamped in Dark Chocolate and embossed with clear. I added a few gold dots with a pen, just to liven it up a bit!  I may need a do-over for this one!  Fun challenge!

Color Throwdown Countdown #448

I wanted to play these pretty colors today, and found I had colors that were close, but not quite!  I guess it's freedom of expression today!


Love this Watercolor Wonders set from Altenew. It makes the prettiest cards!  Thanks for looking!

Have a great week...

JUNE 2017 BLOG HOP INSPIRATION




Perfect image to inspire us this month!!


I knew right away I wanted to do a watercolor card for these awesome jars!  I used last week's Make it Monday technique for the flowers, using rolled up baby wipes! I loved making those blooms...

MAKE IT MONDAY #288: PANTONE CHIP INSPIRED CARDS

This was so quick and fun to do! I looked through my stamps for a good image, and found Bowl of Sunshine. I thought it was a nice size, and had a cute sentiment. I did have to increase the size of my Square a little to accommodate the sentiment. 


The colors are Bright Buttercup and Green Parakeet, and I used a piece of paper from the Black & White paper pack for my background. 

Thanks Lexi! I love the cute inspiration of the Pantone chips and have created my own board on Pinterest now!

Happy Birthday Fun

I had the day off today, and made this fun birthday card for my son. When I saw this sentiment from Offbeat Birthday, I knew I had to get it....


He just happens to be an Optometrist! Hahah! I can't wait to send it. :)

CREATE ALONG WITH US: JUNE 2017


I'm always inspired by Dawn's projects,especially the colors she uses! I too my inspiration from the card...


I can't wait to get those new Dies, but I used some that are similar to make my card. The flowers are a spray for Stamp-a-Faire a few years back.


I'm debating adding a button at the point, but for now I've left it simple.  Thanks for stopping by!

I have had a blast trying out different color combos for these stamps. The choices for this week's Color Throwdown worked perfectly!
