JULY 2017 BLOG HOP INSPIRATION

Soft blues and pretty blooms were in our inspiration this month. 


I started by making a background with Faded Jeans distress ink. Then I hear embossed the leafy circle in Silver. 


I added a few flowers and leaves and finished with some white seam binding. Love the sentiments in Pen and ink, and this one was added in navy ink. 

Here is a closeup of the silver...


Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the Hop!

MAKE IT MONDAY #291: EMBOSS RESIST SHADOW SENTIMENT

I was able to play Make it Monday this afternoon. This was a fun and easy technique! I chose Big Hugs to work with, it's a favorite, as I have lots of family far away.


I used Royal Velvet for the Sentiments and Aqua Mist and Hawaiian Shores for the blending. 

Have a great week, and Happy Stamping!

CREATE ALONG WITH US: JULY 2017

So many pretty projects this month! I finally settled on this card from Dawn for my inspiration!


I was drawn to it because of the colors, all my favorites! Not to mention the great Coverup stamp...

Here's what I came up with 


My turquoise zig pen has run dry, so I used my peerless watercolors for the background. This will head to my sister for her birthday this week! Have a great week everyone!

MAKE IT MONDAY #290: COMBINING STENCILING AND MASKING

Happy 4th of July to all my American friends. So thankful to live in a country that is free and full of blessings. Today I am off, it's an official holiday for the bank.  So I'm happy to have some crafty time this morning. I have a Make it Monday done already!

I'm glad I purchased the Herb Garden kit. It's a pleasure to use, and I happily pulled out the square stencil to play. I also used Spring Woods. It worked great for the card I planned. 


At first, I wasn't going to use a bird, but it just added a sweet touch for my sympathy card. 

Thanks for looking, hope you have a great day!
