Heartfelt Creations Alumni June Hop

It's the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop for June!

I have to tell you all, I really, I mean, really, like the new dies Heartfelt has come out with!  They make it so easy to cut out multiple flowers all at the same time!  For this card, I cut out the flowers 3 times [for 3 layers] and once more using water color paper.  I spritzed the wc paper die cuts with water and then sprayed with ink spray.  Of course, I am loving the vivid colors :)

Delightful Daisy Dies - HCD1 - 760

While I didn't use them, there is also a matching  stamp set;
Delightful Daisies - HCPC - 3656

Remember to leave a comment along the way. The random picked winner will receive a $25 gift certificate from Heartfelt Creations. You have until Friday to leave your comments. I will be posting the winner here on my blog on Saturday.

Here are the other Designers participating in today's hop:

SCS Color Challenge 537

It's Mary's choice this week and she chose Hello Honey, Cucumber Crush, Watermelon Wonder with a dessert of a sweet treat. [whoops, missed that dessert again]

I went with CAS-ual Fridays Exclamations.  This is a really fun set with those big ole words.  I ended up substituting all the colors since I don't have any of the new colors.

Okay, come on over and play along with us at the SCS Color Challenge 537.

Christmas Time Out with Simon

I wanted to get my card in for the Muse: Christmas Visions #8.  Lydia was the Muse this week.

I was inspired by her colors, and the inspiration photo over at Time Out #34 with the graphic feel.  My mc is from Clearly Besotted.


I went on to play in Simon Says Flickr Challenge #22, Rainbow.

I used Simon Says Lots of Dots, with a sponged background.  I do love rainbow colors!

Thanks all -  I had a fun day!

Guestie at the Sisterhood

I am the Guest Designer over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers for Challenge #37!  It runs for the next 2 weeks, and the challenge is wine.

Timing could not of been more perfect!  Some friends are retiring and they are moving to Mexico and will be living at the beach.  [So exciting for them], perfect challenge for me to make them a retirement  card!

My beach background is Innovative Stamp Creations, Serenity, along with a sentiment from STAMPlorations, Celebrate, and my trusty label maker.  I had to down load a digi wine glass - I can not believe I have no wine glasses in all-my-stamps!  [really??] - thankfully, the digi worked.

Okay, it's your turn - come on over to the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers and join in the challenge.  I can't wait to see how you are inspired by wine.

Just Us Girls #299 - Photo Inspiration

It's a great photo for Summertime huh?  In my card case, I needed a baby shower card, and I was inspired by the gingham.  Because my friend's colors are mint and brown, I went with a mint colored gingham.

I even finished off the inside! :)
I got the template from Pinterest, loaded it into my Silhouette, and cut it out!  (So much easier than scissors)  My sentiment is computer generated.

Show us how you are inspired by the photo!  Come on over to JUGS and play along~  We look forward to seeing what you create.

Stamps of Life

I am showcasing a couple of fun whale2stamp [and dies] cards today.  I tell you what, this whale just makes me smile!  He is so cute.

I used papers from the Celebrate Collection Paper Pad.  For my card base, I used Powdered Sugar card stock along with Blueberry card stock.

I did some water coloring smooshing for my background.  [I love doing this - it's really fun!]  I also used a piece of acetate to cut out the "bubbles" with the Single Hole Circle dies.  My striped paper is from the Happy Collection Paper pad.

Tag You're It and Card Concept

Joining in a couple of challenges today -- Tag You're It #24

A little stenciling, die cuts and tag -- gotta love that!

I also was inspired by the Card Concept Color Challenge; yellow, white and gray.  Lovely~ I also entered this into Less is More #229; Stenciling.

I used Inspired By Stamping Winter Birds, along with [my favorite] Watercolor Sentiments.  I did partial water coloring of the bird, and used ARTplorations Bubbles Stencil for my background.
Such a fun day! :)
