Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop

I'm visiting my daughter in Georgia and we (well maybe just me) had time to stamp today between baby naps and feeding.  I made this card for the May Papertrey Ink Blog Hop which is to create a card using flower images and a choice of color combos. Here is the combo that I chose.

I ended up using only 3 of the colors on my card and I got to use my new Ruby Rose set :-)

1 Card - Many Challenges

Hi! Happy Saturday!  Here's a card I made yesterday that fits with several challenges.

Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Flower Power, CASology: Bloom, colourQ #189 and CAS(E) this Sketch #28.   Can you believe that? 4 sketches!



I made this card because my daughter says I've doing too many geometric cards. This is for you Liz :-)

I first stamped the sentiment and then positioned it so I could see where to stamp the flowers. Then I ran the stamped flower panel through my Big Shot using the linen impression plate.  The sentiment panel is up on dimensionals.  That's about it.  This card will go into my stash for Operation Write Home.  If you haven't heard of it check it out!  Have a great weekend!

Stamps: Bloomin' Marvelous (SAB), Irresistibly Ikat (PTI)
Paper: Ruby Red, White 
Ink: Ruby Red, Calypso Coral, Certainly Celery, Versafine Onyx Black

My Grandson is 3 Months Old!

This is for the 3 month birthday of my grandson, Titus.  It also sneakily is for the Seize the Birthday Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Challenge for things with wings.

The theme for his bedroom is red, white and blue and also transportation. So for her baby shower my older daughter and I made a a bunch of these little planes, some cars and trains and hung them from bare tree branches as a centerpiece on the table.  I thought it would be cute to use one on his card.  You can't see it well in the picture but the red glimmer paper is all sparkly and pretty.  Hope he likes it! Thanks for stopping by.

Retro Sketches #63 and Dynamic Duos #52

My original plan was to make a card for The Alley Way Stamps Be Inspired Challenged.  I don't have any TAWS stamps so I printed out the free bird image.  That was a couple days ago. I sat down this afternoon to make a card and got caught up in the Retro Sketches layout and then the Dynamic Duos color challenge and didn't remember that the TAWS challenge was also a color challenge. Oops!  So I guess I don't qualify for that challenge anymore.  I still had fun making this bird card :-)

The DD Challenge is celebrating their one year anniversary and they are letting up pick from all their past challenges. I chose the yellow and black combo from DD#3.

Both the bird and the arrow are popped up on dimensionals. Hope you like my little bird. I think he's kinda cute!

Stamps: TAWS free digital bird image, Love Ya Bunches  sentiment (SU), Sketched Shapes (PTI)
Paper: Brights DSP Stack (Daffodil Delight), White  (SU)
Ink: Daffodil Delight marker (SU), Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: Teresa Collins & My Mind's Eye enamel dots, dimensionals
Tools: Sketched Shaped die (PTI)

Edited: I got a Dynamic Darling honorable mention for this card. Yay!

DD#50 Birthday

I really like this card over on Kloset Kreations using this week's Dynamic Duos color challenge.  I was casing the card and when I was finished decided to do my own card for the color challenge.  This week's colors are Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride. Well actually I'm not going to post this card yet so  it will be last week's colors.

I just got this new Papertrey set and decided to ink it up. It took some tinkering to get those tickets placed but I think I finally like the end result.  This card is going to my SIL whose birthday is in May so I'll go back and circle the date before sending it to him.  Thanks for stopping by!

2 Challenges

2 posts in one day. AMAZING!  This is for the Retro Sketches Challenge and also the colourQ Challenge.

 I just got the Quilt Prints stamp set and this is my first time using it.  It took me a few tries to get the hang of it and it's still not perfect. I'm a perfectionist and like things to be just right but I guess I have to let that go.  I tried stamping the quilt outline in Blush Blossom but just couldn't see it so stamped it in Smoky Shadow. A bit of a cheat for the color challenge but what can I say. I'll have to claim old eyes.  So after stamping the quilt print I trimmed it up and then tied some Baker's twine around it.  Then I ran some white paper through my Big Shot using the Fishtail Flag Stax twice to get the double ended flag. The sentiment is on dimensionals and the quilt panel is also on dimensionals. Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by!

Love the Triangles

Well I did make some cards with flowers but I don't have pictures yet.  I do have a another card with triangles, though.   A case of a card by Lime Doodle.

For my card I used the Sanded stamp by SU for the background in Blush Blossom. I then stamped the sentiment in Smoky Shadow. The triangles were punched out of Blush Blossom paper and popped up on dimensionals. Lastly are the enamel dots which I can't get enough of. Thanks for stopping by!

More In Color Ikat

Here are a couple more cards that I made using the new SU 2013 In Colors and Irresistibly Ikat.

This first one has a Bermuda Bay card base. The chevrons are stamped with Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding and Strawberry Slush. The sentiment is Versafine Onyx black. This whole panel is popped up on dimensionals.

The second card has a Soft Suede card base. The chevrons are stamped with Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral. The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede.

My daughter says that I'm using too many geometric shapes so maybe tomorrow I'll try to use flowers instead :-)

Thanks for stopping by!

In Color Ikat

I'm really loving these new In Colors. I don't think my picture does the colors justice. In real life they are so soft and pretty!

I stamped the chevrons in the following order: Calypso Coral, new Smoky Shadow, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Smoky Shadow, Bermuda Bay and then ended with Calypso Coral.  I stamped the sentiment (wish it was a tad higher) and then tied some Baker's twine and a button around.  I ran a piece of Coastal Cabana through my Big Shot with the Linen Impression plate for some texture and then added the Ikat panel on dimensionals.  Thanks for looking and come back tomorrow for more cards with the new In Colors :-)
