August Mini Release Countdown to Confetti | Reverse Confetti





Today we're counting down for a special Reverse Confetti Mini Release!  The New Products will be available on Saturday, August 8th.  We'll be celebrating that day with a special blog hop too!  

Today we're sharing project using the new You Matter stamp set and coordinating confetti cuts.  Here's how I was inspired:


Let's chat about the More Love, Less Hate card first.  


If you've been following me for a bit, you know how much I love designing my own striped paper.  This one uses the following cardstock colors:

Brick
Tangerine
Sunshine
Lime Green
Navy
Grape Soda

The You Matter stamp set is fabulous.  It's filled with awesome images and the perfect sentiments.  Here are the copic colors that I used:

G00000
E41 | E42
E42 | E43
E51 | E53


The coordinating confetti cuts are a must have!  It comes with the fabulous die that is made to cut the interior circle in the center of the hands.  There's also the stitched circle and of course, the LOVE sentiment die.

After cutting the center circle from my panel above, I knew that I wanted to use it as a focal point for a different design.


I love how this clean + simple design turned out!  I used the Love confetti cut with the 'is' from the Love is Love sentiment.  My base panel coordinates with Lime Green cardstock.



That's it for me!  I can't wait to see how my teamie were inspired!

Seas the Day | Inspired by Challenge - Endless Summer


Due to excessive Spam , Comment Moderation is ON.


Hello and Welcome to another new Inspired by Challenge!  There is also an optional sketch challenge:


I was inspired by both!  Here's how it worked out:


First I worked with my cardstock supply and used Stampin' Up:

Watermelon Wonder
Crushed Curry
Melon Mambo

I'm hungry now...LOL

The Lawn Fawn Tropical Backdrop in black was perfect to frame out my cardstock.  The sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn On The Beach sentiment.


I'm playing a bit with my photography.  I find that when I don't use copics I don't have much to add to my flat photography.  I dug up this old photo tent [thanks for the inspiration Kerry Urbatch!] and decided to give it a go. 

I can't wait to see how my other teamies were inspired, please check out the Inspired by Challenge Blog!

Newton's Nook Designs | Design Team Member






I'm super excited to share that I've joined the Newton's Nook Designs Team!

I wanted to design a project using the fun Slimline Frames & Portholes Die set especially for today.  Here's how I was inspired:


I combined the following products:

Lemon Twist
Slimline Frames & Portoles Die Set
Essential Alphabet Die Set


I cut strips of colored cardstock to customize my citrus card palette!  The new Slimline Frames are fantastic and so very versatile.  I think the added panel in between the portholes and the scallop panel along with a solid base underneath the scallop frame make for fun layering.


I love the black sentiment using the Essential Alpha.  This makes for a perfect card to send to a friend.

I was thoroughly inspired by the Inky Paws Challenge

If you need me | Inspired by Challenge - Fruity Sentiments





Hello and Welcome to another new Inspired by Challenge!  There is also an optional sketch challenge:


I was inspired by the lemons and the sketch.  Here's how it all turned out for me:


I inked up the Ellen Hutson's Squeeze the Day by Julie Ebersole, Essentials by Ellen set.  I love this one, the sentiments are awesome!


As you can see, I totally followed the sketch too!  Made it super easy for designing this one.


This is also my first time using the Karin Brushmarker Pro.  Those pens are filled with vivid color!  I can't wait to play with them more!

Boo | Evelin T Designs





I'm still in my Fall Mode and wanted to share this Halloween card made with Evelin T Designs' stamps: 


I combined the Best Friends Fur-ever with the earlier released, It's BOO-tastic!  I love how the sets easily play well with each other. 


Are you a Halloween card fan?  I love designing them!  I tend to gravitate to Orange, Green + Purple color palettes.


I even made an interior panel for this card with another sentiment from It's BOO-tastic!


That purple guy from Best Friends Fur-ever is having his Halloween Coffee :)

Happy Wednesday!

Thankful for You | My Favorite Things


Originally I thought I was going to design a summery card and then I spotted this MFT Li'l Pumpkin set.  I picked it up when they had a sale on their site and now it looks like it is retired.  I don't gravitate to 'people' images but love all things pumpkin.  I'm happy to ink this up!


I fell back on my clean and simple style for this one.  The base panel is Ellen Hutson's Oyster cardstock.  

Fall cards are definitely my favorite season.   


The copics I used:

R01
YR14 | YR16
YR31 | Y17
E31 | E51
E13 | E55
W0 | W3



Honestly, I started with this week's Color Throwdown color trio:


My friend Tonya played along with me!  I think Lisa Lara might join too!

I'm also linking up to CAS(E) this sketch!
