TIME OUT #118 and Fusion - Citrus

The first thing I noticed in the photo at TIME OUT was the lilies in the bouquets.
Basically all you can see are those bulbous blossoms but I knew my PB lily stamp would make a great card.  I combined it with the sketch at Fusion, and with their colors.
The lily is colored with Zigs and fussy cut to to mount over the strips of DP from my stash.  I added black glaze to the stamens and a sentiment from PB. 

I have some exciting news to share.  Michele Ferguson and I are off to Florida tomorrow to visit Nancy Leppek.  On Saturday we are all going to see Kathy Racoosin at My Favorite Things as part of The Coloring Challenge Road Trip. I can hardly wait!

Thanks for dropping by.  I'll see you when I get back.

Addicted to Stamps and More #310

There's lots of wonderful color in the photo inspiration for this challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.  I make a lot of floral cards so I was drawn to the picture in the upper right.

I love the dark, rich wall color and pulled out some old Core-dinations paper for my background and scored along the edge.  My NBUS Altenew Cattleya is stamped in shades of orange and the sentiment from HA is stamped on a banner from N&T. 

How will you be inspired by the photo? 

CAS Watercolor - September

This card has been sitting on my desk waiting for me to post it but other deadlines got in the way.  Today's the day for you to see my card for the CAS Watercolor challenge.
I stamped the trees from Altenew's Birchland in Black Soot DI and ran my wide brush from the sides in to spread the color.  The trees were masked and the background painted with Distress Inks.  I wanted to frame the picture but the scrap of Bristol that I painted it on was too small to go under the PTI frame so I inset it.

I'm so glad you dropped by.  Have a wonderful day.

Inkspirational #169

The challenge at Inkspirational is to use a doily on your card - paper, lace, stencil, stamp.  I just happen to have a stamp set from CPD called Medallion Mix-Up that looks like doilies to me. 
I needed an anniversary card to include in a set of cards I was making for a fundraiser.  By adding some tissue paper hearts to the heat embossed 'doilies' I got what I needed.  The silver embossed sentiment is from MSE.

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope your week is off to a great start.

CAS(E) This Sketch #289

Sometimes it take a while to figure out how to honor a sketch and such was this new one from CAS(E) This Sketch
It's a retro sketch from back in 2013 and I did make one then.  You can see it here.  Not much to it and I hope I've come a long way in the past 5 years.  I think I found the perfect stamp set for this new card. 

Stamps:  PTI Summer Fenceline, Altenew Cattleya for sentiment
Inks: Altenew, Distress and Oxides
Other: Clarity brushes

Thanks for dropping by.
