Playin’ with Mojo!

Hello Hello! So excited to post my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge! I love a good challenge!

And my card-

Mojo454

As you can see, this sketch was simple and has some great elements. I pulled out my large (now retired) circle framelits and used some of the amazing Serene Scenes DSP for the background. I love the flower that is front and center. It can hold it’s own as a main image for sure. These colors are all about summer as far as I am concerned! They are so beachy, don’t you think?

Thanks for stopping by today. I would love to know what you thought of this card so leave me some love in the form of a comment. Be sure to subscribe to my blog and never miss another post, or fun challenge!

June Inspiration Challenge from SSInkspiration

Summer is in full swing here in Idaho and this week’s inspiration challenge at SSInk is a perfect fit!

 #SSINKIC34-June

This is my card – using my favorite new set from the new catalog –

June SSINK IC34

I have only made a couple of projects with this set but I think it’s so fun and offers so much variety. The colors are pure summer and are something I would not have normally put together. I love them and will be using them again soon!

CASE the designer…..Stampin’ Royalty Style

This week over at Stampin’ Royalty the challenge is to CASE the designer! Choose a card that one of them has made and CASE the color combination that they used.

For me, it was pretty easy to choose what to CASE. My dear friend Carrie Rhoades is a designer and she used some of my favorite colors! Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Crumb Cake.

SR334 Card

I knew the centerpiece of my design was going to be the brand new Blooms and Bliss Designer Series Paper. It has almost all of these colors and my pack arrived just a few days ago. I couldn’t wait to cut into it!

I created a simple color fold card, which we will be learning this weekend at Technique Class. I still have a few spaces available if you would like to join us!

I has to sub the Mint Macaron for the Old Olive because I couldn’t quite make the two work together. I really love the all over feel of these colors together. Great choice Carrie!

SSInk Sketch Challenge

It’s Saturday! The weekend. Time for projects around the home, maybe a yard sale or two and of course some stampin’. Today I played along with the sketch challenge over at SSInkspirations. I have to say that this challenge was just that – a challenge for me!

#SSINKCS34

I like my layers neat and orderly – but once I got going on this, I had a lot of fun getting outside my normal box.

For this card I was able to combine two of my most favorite NEW items from the Annual Catalog, Jars of Love and Serene Scenes DSP. I know that I will be using these two products again and again, so I hope you will enjoy seeing lots of them!

TGIF JUNE 2016 new Challenges_2_2-001

and here is my card:

TGIFC59 card

I adore this line image from the returning set In the Meadow. It can be part of a scene using the other stamps or stand alone on it’s own. This card is quick and easy with just a few layers and simple coloring. It will be included in my monthly Q&E class in July. I would love to have you!~

One Layer Challenge

Happy Monday Friends! I was able to squeeze in the weekly challenge over at Stampin’ Royalty this weekend and I wanted to share it with you. This week we made one layer cards. The new Swirly Bird set was just what I needed to make this quick and easy card!

I am loving the new In Colors – especially Dapper Denim and Flirty Flamingo. This set has such a variety of elements included that it is going to be showcased again and again. I love that it can be used on it’s own as I did here, or with the coordinating thinlits to step things up a notch.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I would love to know what you think of my card and be sure to subscribe so that you never miss another post!

ICS Blog Hop – Guys Night Out

Welcome back hoppers for another fun month of inspiration from the Inspire, Create, Share team! We are so glad to have you!

Tonight we are sharing cards and creations inspired for the guys in our life!

Shaker anchor

This card is using the new Dapper Denim along with some Island Indigo and Pool Party. These colors go together like peanut butter and jelly. The “waves” are from the fun Swirly Scribbles thinlits that have just come out in our brand new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog. The anchor and greeting are from the set Guy Greeting – a top choice for every man in your life.

As you can see, this is a shaker card! Aren’t those so much fun! The window is filled with sequins and punches from the new ‘Sprinkles’ punch, also just released!

Want to learn how to make shaker cards? Join me on June 18th for a class where I will teach you how easy it is and you will go home with supplies to create on your own after the class! You can sign up on my facebook page here or send me an email!

Today is the first day of our new catalog – I would love to send one to you if you don’t have one and I am always here to help with any of your stamping needs!

Now it’s time to hop on over to my Joni’s page and see what she has in store for us!
