Paisley Mojo

Bonus post and inspiration today! I don’t normally post on a Tuesday but last night I was inspired by the sketch over at Mojo Monday and I decided to play along!

Pretty much every part of this card has me out of my comfort zone. First off, it’s square. That is something I never do. Secondly, these colors are not ones that I would normally put together. This DSP has been a fun stretch for me and I actually really like the Mint with the Navy and Razzleberry. The paisleys made it so easy to incorporate the color scheme and pulled the whole thing together for me!

Something for baby

Hello stampers! Hope that you are having a great day! Today at SSInk, we are sharing cards and creations using one of the fantastic hosts sets offered this year.

ZanziCard

This card is using an adorable image from the Love you Lots set, located on page 199 of the Annual Catalog. I made this card for some good friends of ours who had their first baby this summer. Their theme in the nursery has been elephants and I knew this would be just perfect. The Z is for the babies nickname and was so easy to add with the Large Letters Framelits. The sentiment and safety pin come from the Better Together stamp set and were a great addition to this card, don’t you agree?

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I would love to hear your thoughts on my card and be sure to subscribe to the blog so that you never miss another post!

August Sketch Challenge from SSInk

Happy Monday friends! I am so excited to bring you another weekly challenge from my stampin’ pals over at SSInk. This week we have a very fun sketch challenge for you.

#SSINKCS36

Here is my card

SSInkSC36

I especially love sketch challenge because for me designing a layout can be the most challenging part of putting a card together. When the layout is in front of me, it is easier to choose stamps that fit and then run with it. I hope that you will play along with us this week! You can link up to your blog or add it to our Facebook group.

Monday Color Challenge

It’s Monday! That means it is time for another weekly challenge with the great team at SSInk. This week we are playing with these fun colors!

SSInk Aug Color Block

At first, I wasn’t really sure about these but once I got working with them, I fell in love! Here is my card

SSInk1Aug

This was the first time I have used the flowers from Jar of Love. I love how easy it was to cut them out with the big shot using the coordinating framelits. These colors are perfect for the time of year here in Idaho. The colors are getting richer and deeper while the dog days of summer are very much upon on.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope that you are inspired to play along with us this week and I would love to know what you think about my project! Be sure to subscribe to my site while you are here so that you never miss another post!

Playin’ with Mojo!

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

preview-full-Mojo454Sketch

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!

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.

SSINKCS34card

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 Sketch Challenge

Happy Hump Day! It’s time for another sketch challenge over at TGIF Challenges. This month we have this sketch to play with.

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!

SR333 Onelayer

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!
