Pretty Pink Posh / Inspired By

Inspired By

Hello!  I have the pleasure of playing along with the Inspired by......All The Little Things Challenge this week as their Guest.  It's become one of my favorite challenges to look at when I need something to spark an idea!  Thanks to my friend Tracey for inviting me for this challenge! 

When I first saw the inspiration photo, I immediately thought of the umbrella stamps from Pretty Pink Posh all stamped in those luscious colors but when I sat down to make my card, I was instead inspired by the COLORS in general.  So that's where my card went!  I used the newer Bold Blooms stamps from Pretty Pink Posh along with the vine stamp from Build a Bloom, also from Pretty Pink Posh.  All the flowers were stamped in Catherine Pooler inks (Party Dress, Tiki Torch, and Something Borrowed).  Have you tried these inks yet???  They are so amazing with their coverage!  I layered all the vines and flowers over a Stitched Notes rectangle that was added with foam adhesive.  My sentiment, from Thoughtful Greetings, was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink.

TIP:For the tiny flowers, I found it easier to die cut lots of flowers and then stamp.  Much easier than lining up the dies with each stamped flower.  ☺

Here is the Inspired By photo for the challenge.  
I hope you can find time to play along with us!

Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop!

Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop 

Hello!  I am excited to play along with the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop today!  I am playing along with SugarPea Designs who is one of the sponsors!

I enjoyed playing with the coffee themed products that SugarPea Designs has released.  I paired the coffee cup image from Caffeine Addict along with the Coffee word stamp from the new set, The Perfect Blend onto a Zig Zag Stitched Circle.  The strip of pattern paper layered behind is from Sugar & Spice paper pad.

Avery Elle / Beside the Sea

Hello!  I am sharing a card that can be seen over on the Avery Elle blog today using Beside the Sea.

I just love this color combination so I thought I'd pair it with this fun beachy set, Beside the Sea, from Avery Elle.  I colored the beach huts with my Copics and die cut using the coordinating Beside the Sea Elle-ments.  The images were layered over a Distress Ink blended sky and a kraft "beach" done with the Picket Fence Elle-ments.  My two layered circles were added to a Burst Elle-ments background.  LOVE!

Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!

Reverse Confetti / SFYTT


Hello!  I am here sharing a card using the current SFYTT (Sketch For You to Try) over at the Reverse Confetti blog.  Check out the SFYTT post......HERE for all the details!

For the most part, I stayed true to this month's SFYTT but I changed up the focal point.  I used the new Sunburst Tag Layer over a white Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts.  I layered several black Hello Confetti Cuts together and added it over my sunburst background tag.  I stamped a friend sentiment, from You're So, onto a white strip of cardstock and layered it behind my die cut sentiment.  This was layered over 3 strips of pattern paper from the Pattern Play 6x6 Paper Pad.


Now the best part is.......there is always a winner every month!  Here are the details:

The winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store and claim the title of ‘Fetti Fave. The winner of SFYTT will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 30th of each month.
Check out the SFYTT post......HERE.

SugarPea Designs / Sweet Peek Day 5

Pucker Up

Hello!  I am excited to share my last project I've been working on for the brand new release from SugarPea Designs!  Each day this week, we shared inspiration using the new release.  With several new stamp sets, matching dies, and even a new paper product.......there's something you are sure to love!  

Did you enjoy this week of new product peeks?  The NEW products will be available for purchase starting today, June 16th at 6PM EST in the SPD Store.

Today's card is one that epitomizes summer in my eyes......lemonade!  Pucker Up has so many adorable images with little faces on them!  Pair them with the punny sentiments and it's a great set!

I started by layering a turquoise polka dot paper from Life is a Carnival paper pad over a white top folding notecard.  My images were all black heat embossed and colored with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  The images were added over a panel of vellum (to soften the polka dot paper) and over a black die cut strip of cardstock where my sentiment was white heat embossed.  A few enamel dots brought the turquoise back to the front of the panel.

Would you like to win the Pucker Up stamp set? All you need to do is leave a comment on the SPD blog.  It's really that easy!  Winners during our Product Release will be announced on Monday, June 19.

Lil' Inker Designs / June Release Day 3 / Huge Sale!


Hello!  It is Day 3 of the Lil' Inker Designs June Release!  This release is FULL of amazing dies and stamps.......are you ready?  You should have arrived from the Lil' Inker Designs Blog.   Guess what??  The whole new release is now available and can be found HERE!!!  But make sure you scroll to the bottom of this post, as there is a HUGE sale happening this week too!

This first card just makes me chuckle!  I'll Be Brief is a new "punny" stamp set that is just adorable!  

I stamped and die cut several of the "brief" stamps and gave a quick highlight with my N1 Copic for just a bit of shading.  I randomly added these over a white top folding notecard.  To frame my images, I die cut a frame out of the Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Rectangles.  I white heat embossed the "punny" sentiment onto a black strip of cardstock and added it across, behind the frame.  

This card is going to my brother-in-law for his retirement this weekend so to customize this, I used the bear in his briefs stamps!  Very fitting as my brother-in-law is known as "Papa Bear" where he teaches!  His school colors are orange and burgundy so I colored his briefs accordingly.  I added my bear with foam adhesive to the left of my sentiment.  To finish, I added some tiny stamped stars from the Grad Class Stamps around all the briefs! 




To switch gears a bit, my second card uses the floral set called Blossoms and Banners.  I black heat embossed the image and colored the blooms with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  Using the Blossoms and Banners Dies, I die cut the image and layered it over a panel that was done using the Quilted Stitched Basket Weave Die.  This panel was trimmed down and added to a light blue cardstock panel.  After adhering the panel, I added several clear confetti in various sizes.


Now for the fun part!  There is a HUGE giveaway for one lucky commenter......the ENTIRE release!!!
