Color Hues #90

It's white and aqua at Color Hues and of course I went with my usual floral. 


The Mondo Sakura from EbyE  was stamped on Bristol and colored with Zigs.  After die cutting the flowers, they were added to a panel embossed with Altenew's Angled Mosaic.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Thanks for dropping by.  Have a great weekend!

Just Us Girls #735 - Word Week

This week gives you lots of options with the word Carol Mc has chosen for Word Week at Just Us Girls.

Summertime - and the living is easy.  As is making a card for this challenge.


Something cool goes well with hot summer days so how about a Popsicle in my favorite lime flavor.  The treat is from Concord and 9th and covered in several layers of UTEE to give it that icy shine.  The sentiment is from the set and the embossing folder is from Altenew.

I'm sure there will be a wide range of summertime cards not only from the Design Team and our guest Cat Craig, but also from our gallery.  I hope we see you there.

Inkspirational #319 and Group of Seven - Monochromatic

I got the Geo Tiles stencil from Pinkfresh on sale a while back thinking it would make great masculine cards.  I also thought Altenew's Natures Wonders inks would be great colors to use.  Inkspirational is looking for stenciled cards for their challenge.  I didn't use the paste option.  


I must admit that I didn't line up the stencil perfectly so the die that comes with it wouldn't work but I like the card without it anyway.  The Penny Black sentiment was cut from cardstock made by inking the darkest color of the set - Mangrove Root. 

The Group of Seven Cardmakers is looking for monochromatic cards this month so I'll be sending my card to them too.

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

Freshly Made Sketches #643 and NBUS #64

I was honored with a win at Freshly Made Sketches last week and was compelled to make another fun card for this week's challenge.


I recently got the Tropical Friends dies from Spellbinders and those darling birds have been wanting to show off.  I'm featuring the parrot here but his toucan friend will be making his debut soon.  All the dies are from the set.  The Leafy background is also Spellbinders and the sentiment is from Your Next Stamp.

New products mean that my card is also going to Darnell's NBUS challenge.

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope you do have a fun day.
